    Over the last several months there have been hundreds of articles and thousands of comments on the Raiders QB situation.  Many Raiders fans sided with the fierce Bruce Gradkowski, while some stayed loyal to the #1 pick of 2007 with an arm that is a lethal weapon, JaMarcus Russell.

     To all of Russell's supporters I would like to say no hard feelings.  Sure, we had debates/arguements and difference of opinion but we all have 1 common goal:  The resurgence of the Raiders! 

     Now Russell has been released and the QB battle will now be between Bruce Gradkowski and Jason Campbell.  I am not 100% thrilled with Russell's release because I still had a little bit of me that believed in him.  Part of me remembers when he was picked 1st in 2007 and how much I fell in love with him.  I made my friends call me JaMarcus or I would ignore them. 

    So to the Russell supporters, I say no hard feelings.  Just Win Baby!
