Question: Whats the biggest difference between Raiders embattled young Qb and savvy veteran and three time SuperBowl champion Tom Brady?

Answer: Matt Light, Logan Mankins, Dan Koppen, Steven Neal...

Sure Tom Brady possess an alomost uncanny ability to make plays in the clutch and find the open receiver. He sure has enough time to do so. Rarely do you see Mr. Brady scrambling for his life to avoid the fumble sack which Russell has mastered. (It would probably be overturned anyway) What you do see is a man with seemingly thirty seconds a pop to survey all three levels of the field from short to intermediate, to long.

Jamarcus Russell doesn't even have short or intermediate routes in his gameplan.(thanks Cable) He also has the likes of Khalif Barnes(see jets game) Cooper Carlisle and Cornell Green(Yikes!) If the Raiders linemen were a rock band, it would definitely be named "The Revolving Doors" starring Robert Gallery and the hapless quartet. Run some crossin' routes, will you!

This offseason Mr. Davis has already addressed the pressing issue of stupid playcalling by demoting lame duck "Basic" Cable. Next he must use his Draft picks(And his pocketbook) to protect his prized possesion from not only Massive and Speedy D-Linemen, but also the desperately racist and biased media who would love to see Mr. Davis' project fail.

Lesson: Never pick a Black QB first overall. And definitely do not pay him 32 million. LSU got him for free!
