As a Raider fan I feel cheated, abused and violated. "Why" you ask. Ahhh come on, you know the reason. The Jamarcus Russell era (I prefer to call it the Jafuctus Russell era) has left myself and the Raider Nation feeling that way.

Even in the wake of Russell (finally) getting cut, the history, legacy and just his plain 'ol crappy stats he left us with... hurt--- BADLY.

So let's take a look at a couple of quite theraputic methods you can use to recover from what Russell has done to us all. It isn't likely we can sue Russell ourselves for him falsely advertising himself as a quarterback. So therapy is it for us common folk.

These are a couple of my unproven, non-scietific methods of therapy to recover from the Jamarcus era of Raider football:

  • Russell is cut--- write it, say it, yell it, train your dog to bark it or even get a tatoo of it. Hell it just feels great to know it in general.
  • Review, review, review the 2010 Raiders draft. Seeing the logical and positive draft picks made this year helps you forget that #2 was here.
  • Burn your Russell jerseys, cards or any other memorabilia you might have been given. Just say someone "Gave" it to you, you don't want to admit that you spent your own money on him do you? This burning method is great for group therapy sessions as well.
  • Last but not least-- Just remember and be thankful that you are not a Chiefs fan. That in itself is a giant relief and can help you forget Russell ever existed.

So there you go, some quick, easy ways to overcome the results of Jafuctus Russell being a Raider. Can you think of more? list them below.

RUSSELL IS CUT........... (see it just feels great!)
