Let me start off by saying I am not a Raiders fan. I do have friends who are Raiders fans and I'm intrigued by how die-hard they are even if their team is going nowhere fast every year. 

As I was scanning the NFL transactions, I let out a chuckle when I saw that the Raiders have now brought on another quarterback. 

Okay, Raiders fans. Count them out with me: JaMarcus Russell, Jeff Garcia, Bruce Gradkowski, Andrew Walter, Danny Southwick, and Charlie Frye are all now on the roster.

Does this show you how little faith the team has in their No. 1 overall pick, JaMarcus Russell?

If Russell wasn't a No. 1 overall pick, he would be in jeopardy of getting cut. One just has to look at his wildly inaccurate throws in the OTAs to see all the skill that he possesses, which, my friends, is none—no skill at all.

Many teams will only carry two QBs on their roster, while some may carry three. Let's say three players get cut. Russell and Garcia are locks to make the final roster.

To make the final spot, I would give the upper hand to Walter since he has been with the team a few years. Seeing him play at ASU, I really do feel that he is being unfairly buried on the depth chart.

But realistically, Walter, Southwick (who?), and Frye will get the boot come September, leaving the Raiders' season in the good hands of Russell, Garcia, and Gradkowski.
