Raider Nation I just checked my mail today and found ESPN NFL Preview Magazine in the magizine i found some interesting things.
JaMarcus Russell was the first pick in the 2007 Nfl Draft and ever since then JaMarcus has had a huge monkey on his back. Raider Nation are we to tough on him because here are some interesting facts.
Last year was Russell rookie year basically. He had 8 games among the season where he had a 85 plus passer rating. Joe Flacco only had seven nobody complained about his play. Matt Ryan only had nine he was a great QB according to everyone.
I know he struggled at the beginning of the season but he improved look at these numbers from week 11 to 17.
Russell Flacco Ryan
Comp/Att 93/152 106/185 116/184
Yards 1,134 1,322 1,531
Touchdowns 7 7 5
Interceptions 4 5 6
Passer Ratings 88.5 81 84.8
I would like to thank ESPN for bringing this to my attention, after week 10 Russell progressed alot.
This is our year
