Jamarcus Russell had god-given talent and didn't work hard. Bottom line. It's not from coming up poor, sleep apnea, or deaths in the family. It seems as if this author wants the reader to believe that society is to blame for this man's football demise. PUH-LEAZE!
Throughout the article, Russell never takes any personal responsibility for anything.
AND TO THINK WE COULD HAVE DRAFTED CALVIN JOHNSON THAT YEAR
Here's a line that almost made hurl my computer across the room...
Putting Russell "two time zones and a million cultural miles from his Gulf Coast comfort zone, spelled trouble"
See above. It's everybody's else's fault but JaWalrus'.
Another gem - Does he follow the Raiders? "No. They took a lot out of me."
THEY took a lot out of you? Huh?!?!? You took tens of millions from this team and returned DICK you clown. Oh I'm sorry JaMarcus, you wittle-bitty feelings got hurt. It's professional sports, if you don't perform, it's on to the next man.
Russell's performanace speaks milestones. He is straight garbage as an NFL quarterback.
