In a tight game that could have gone either way, Russell came into the game and did something he has not done all season. Instead of leading a team from begining and end to a loss, the great one came in the begining of the 3rd quarter and made what looked like a competitive game into a blowout loss. Oh what joy i felt seeing the great one with his #2 jersey run out onto the field. I nearly spit out the beer that was in my mouth i was so shocked. I startedl looking around the Raider's sideline's hoping that this was some early April's fool's joke and hoping to see the G Man hiding behind a gatorade jug.
No it wasn't no joke. Instead I see the G Man running to the locker room. Any thought I had of the Raiders winning the game went out the window. The money I bet a fellow co-worker was gone as soon as Russell put his chubby fingers under the center's rear. All hope got washed down the drain. I could feel it in the fellow Raider fans around me. The whole stadium just felt dead. We all knew what was to come, bad throws. sacks, ints and a QB who look's lost. And what we thought we got.
In the second half the Redskin's looked like a 13-0 team. They did what they wanted on both sides of the ball. If we as fan's feel horrible to see the great one run out onto the field what do the Raider players feel? Cable after the win against the Steelers commented on how the team was so behind G Man and after only 3 games ! What does that say about the great one and his fellow team mates. Not one Raider player cried foul for the benching of the great one. NOT ONE. To see G Man heading to the locker room had to be as demoralizing to Raider player's as it was to us Raider fan's.
Another thing Raider player's have are ear's. They heard the stupid comment's that came out of the great one's big mouth earlier in the week. Throwing people under the bus, taking blame away from himself and the biggest waste of breath saying Gradkowski was only having good games because other player's were making plays for him. I wonder what will the great one's excuse after this game be.
The great one came in and took the fight out of everybody. No one on this Raider team wants to play with this kid who just doesn't get it and i can't blame them. One of the most vital thing's a QB need's is the respect of his player's. As a player you want to think I can follow this guy into battle I know he will give it his all, he will lead us to victory and if for some reason we don't pull it out we will rally together and take the loss as a team. All these factors Russell doesnt have. Russell has thrown teammates under the bus the whole year. Today I throw him under the bus he is the reason the Raider's lost.
So come on all you Jamarcus lover's out there and make all the excuses in the world for his play today. Ive heard so many excuses this season for this immature fool, cant wait to hear what ammo you have today to defend him.
