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.
