We knew all along that JaMarcus Russell was terrible, and we started making a list of QBs we would rather start than JaMarcus Russell.  Well, that list has turned into 100+ QBs.  We aren't sure if JaMarcus Russell is going to find another job once he gets cut from the Raiders, even on the bench.  He is just that terrible.  Don't believe us? Let's take a look on why JaMarcus Russell is so terrible.

  • His passer rating was 50 last year
  • His stats in his third year are worse than his stats in his rookie season
  • His coach is happy when he completes 50% of his passes
  • He wears RB elbow pads
  • Ballooning weight problem
  • His best asset is he can throw 70 yards from one knee, which is really useful in NFL games

That is over 100 QBs that I would rather see starting instead of JaMarcus Russell. So technically he should be a 3rd string QB, or a practice squad QB, or maybe he should try a different position, or retire.
