I must be feeling a little masochistic today. This will be a slideshow comparing JaMarcus Russell's first two years as a starting quarterback against the first two years of some other successful NFL quarterbacks.
I think it may give credence as to why I still have hope for his future. When bashing me later, remember to keep my mom and my dog out of it. They're both pretty cool!
Also, for statistical purposes, in two years as a starter, Russell has thrown for 16 touchdowns and 19 interceptions, while losing 13 fumbles. His passer rating in year one was 77.1 and 50.0 in year two.
