It could just be me, but I love to see this. Nothing like an awful quarterback getting a second chance on everything, and he even gets the Cardinals light pass defense, so I can't help but root for him. With a name like Tarvaris, you have to be good, at some point...
CBS analyst Rich Gannon hears that JaMarcus Russell's work ethic is lacking, but doesn't necessarily blame that on Russell.
"The coach comes out and says that the guy needs to...come to work every day and do the work it takes to be successful," said Gannon. "That’s mind-boggling, how, in this day and age, whether it be a coordinator or a position coach or a head coach, wouldn’t demand that the guy come in on Tuesdays and do the work.
"If your QB is not the hardest working guy in the building, you have a problem. I think you learn to do that, you learn to be that type of guy."
Well I can sympathize with Russell. I mean you can only have a positive attitude for so long with Al Davis as your boss. I mean the Jews weren't happy under Hitler, nor were the Soviets under Stalin. It's just basic math. Crazy old owner plus awful team, leads to a huge lack of concern and a total collapse in moral.
Hopefully they get this kid a good coach before too long, he has worlds of potential. But if he doesn't put anything up before too long, he too will be buying his plane ticket out of Oakland too.
Alright folks. Off again. I know your dying to hear more news, but hold strong, more will be on it's way ere I be a liar. See you guys tomorrow. TGIF.
