JaMarcus Russell Blank Tape Controversy

Colossal
first round QB draft bust has made headlines again showing the level of his
incompetence and laziness.

Russell, the
NFL gift that keeps on giving, was 7-18 in his tenure as a starter with the
Oakland Raiders was caught up in a sting by Raider coaches who doubted he was
studying film, gave Russell blank tapes to take home to study opponents’
defenses.

The next day Raider coaches asked Russell what he learned from the tapes, Russell would reply that he had learned all the blitz sets of that week’s opponent.

Clearly Russell had never opened the tape to watch the blank tape.

Russell is out
of the league living off the fat salary and signing bonus he got from the
Raiders, expect that to run out and see JaMarcus’ sob story return to the headlines.
