A lot of fans on here slammed down the reports that Adam " I hate the Raiders" Schefter made about Jamarcus weight problems. Well people Adam isnt the only one reporting this big boy's weight, Russell was featured in a segment called heavy bettor where he is shown in vegas playing craps after just attending a Jay Z concert. The thing that is most troubling is not a young QB who is supposed be the franchise having a good time but how big he looks. Adam Schefter may have been wrong by saying Russell was 290, he might be bigger.

We all know now that Willie Brown will say anything to make the Raiders and Davis look better which I cant blame him since Davis is his meal ticket for the rest of his life. But this is the new day and age where picture and videos hit the internet in record time. Instead of being at home and learning the playbook in and out not to mention working your ass off this guy is in vegas. It would be one thing if Russell was a pro bowl QB who was in shape blowing off some steam i could understand. Instead this is a guy who lost his job not only to the second string but also got benched in favor of the 3rd string.

The fire that was supposed to be lit with the benching of Russell looks like it didnt work. The only fire that got lit seems to be Russells BBQ pit. This immature kid is a millionaire that doesnt seem to care about being 3rd string. He is paid people. No matter what happens he got the fancy jewlery and cars for life. Unless he is able to a MC Hammer and get in debt Russell is set.

Where does this leave Russell now ? Are the Russell supporters still here? Do you still have faith in this guy ? Would you want him starting for your team? I have labled this guy a bust since the Giants game last year. When i saw a blitz come directly in front of him and he stood there like a deer in the headlights i knew then and there that this guy is the next Ryan Leaf. I know there are Russell supporters throughout the Raider Nation but I wonder what you all could say to defend this guy now ? A Picture says a lot and to boot I added a link to a youtube video to show how mature Russell is enjoy.
