He is working with Jeff Garcia and WR Michael Clayton. He still is overweight losing just 12 pounds and down from 328 to 308...which isn't (he was 265 when he last played). I'm sure a thread will be started soon with someone wanting him but no thanks. He is 27 so I guess it's now or never for him.

If we switch to the 3-4, we could use a nose tackle

I never route against a guy trying to make a comeback, but this is a longshot and that's sugar-coating it.

As we remember Jamarcus Russel it's important to remember this was NOT an athletic black guy that failed. This bust was supposed to be a pocket passer.

Pastor Troy taught me that all black QBs are read-option QBs, so you're wrong here.

No QB should ever talk about a comeback when they weigh over 300 lbs.

Yeah but don't forget that one year we needed a miracle win from Oakland over Tampa Bay and Russell came through sending us to the playoffs.

Looking back at his career, mainly 2008, he had some very good games so what the hell happened. How come he couldn't play like this all the time? Maybe if he started his career elsewhere and not in Oakland could his career been salvaged at the time? In 2009 he didn't ANY games that came close to the ones below. He was awful.


2008:
111.1 QB rating, 17/26, 180 yards, 2td/0int vs. Denver (loss)

93.3 QB rating, 9/19, 156 yards, 1td/0int, 1 rushing td vs Buffalo (loss)

88.6 QB rating, 17/30, 203 yards, 1td/0int vs. NYJ (loss)

88.4 QB rating, 15/22, 156 yards, 0td/0int vs. Miami (loss)

149.1 QB rating, 10/11, 152 yards, 1td/0int vs. Denver (win)

85.7 QB rating, 17/32, 242 yards, 2td/1int vs. New England (loss)

128.1 QB rating, 14/21, 148 yards, 2td/1int vs. Houston (win)

98.9 QB rating, 14/21, 148 yards, 2td/1int vs. TB (win - helped Eagles into playoffs)

We lost a ugly game 13-9. We couldn't score, settled for field goals. He did't beat us. He had a 68.9 QB rating, 1td/2int. He did however benefit from YAC because his recievers made some huge plays. Zach Miller had 139 yards and a 86 yard TD. Fargas and Bush ran all over us.

So in his best season he only cracked 200 twice with a high of 242? Super-bust.

In 8 games he Threw for 1385 yards 11 tds and 3 Ints.

Those are not bad Numbers if you have a strong Running Game with it.

Just saying...Russell is still a bust but those numbers are not half bad.

He actually broke 200 yard five times in 2008 with a high of 277.

In 8 games he Threw for 1385 yards 11 tds and 3 Ints.

Those are not bad Numbers if you have a strong Running Game with it.

Just saying...Russell is still a bust but those numbers are not half bad.

In 11 games Tebow threw for 1,729 yards 12 TDs and 6 INTs. If you take out 3 bad games so it equals Russell (Jamarcus played more than 8 games in 2008) it looks even better. 1486 yards 11 TDs 5 INTs Of course Tebow adds in a running element too.

Russell really is terrible.

Anybody can take a small sample size of anyone's career and make a case for them being good. Doesn't mean they are.

The guy might have been in the wrong situation is all I am saying. At 300 pounds no way he makes a comeback. If were in better shape he might have a chance.

If I were to tell you 2 years ago, Alex Smith is gonna be the Eagles Starting QB in 2013, everyone would have laughed and said he is a bust. But now if I were to say that, Most people would welcome the idea and hope for it.
