Jamarcus being benched in Oakland?

I agree with benching that bust Jamarrcus Russell.

I think it is time to bring in Gradkowski.

I'm a Raiders fan and I say its time to cut our losses and move on with a real QB.

Jamarcus is a bum.

Do you agree with Jamarcus being benched today?

    Raider fan here too -- and I've BEEN wondering WHY the hell Cable keeps leaving Russell in for the whole game week after week while we all have to watch him get sacked and fumble the football for 3 hours.

    It's gone beyond ridiculous.

    I was SO satisfied when he FINALLY pulled his sorry a$$ out today and sat him down.

    Gradkowski isn't great either, but he's def not any worse than Russell.

    Shoot, I'D probably not be worse than Russell.

    Al Davis needs to admit his mistake, cut his losses, and find an effective qb.

    Of course I agree with him being benched today. I don't think he should start anymore either.

    JaMarcus is showing all of the signs of being a HUGE bust, considering he was the FIRST player taken in the draft 3 years ago.

    Too bad for the Raiders that they don't have much behind him.

    But, if you think that Russell is going to be benched, you're sadly mistaken. Al Davis will not allow this to happen because:

    1. Davis is paying him too much money to be sitting on the bench.

    2. If Russell is benched, Davis would have to admit he made a mistake. Having Davis admit he made a mistake on the first player picked in the draft? Impossible!

    As one who hates the Raiders (and Davis) I have to say: having Russell turn out as a bust couldn't happen to a better team and owner.

    Oh, and by the way, Davis' other 2 first round picks the last 2 years are not looking too good, either. Anyone seen or heard anything lately from Darren McFadden or Darius Heyward-Bey?

    Nice picks, Al...you just hit the triple crown for failure.

    Yea, but.......Gradkowski isnt what I would call a real QB. I think he can be a better QB than Russell, but not a game changer winning QB. They should have kept Jeff Garcia, at least Jeff would have given them a fighting chance. Hey maybe they can pick up lets say a Jake Delhomme, Kerry Collins or Derek Anderson, or Jay Cutler (lol)..or a Mikey Vick if they get released/benched. I mean almost anyone is better than Russell.

    I was thanking GOD! I despise JaGarbage All fat and no Muscle Russell!

    But my new found eurphoria was short lived because Tommy cable stated after the game that jaDummy would still be the starter against the CharGirls.

    Davis will never let Him Go! Davis needs to die already!

    i totally agree . let his fatazz stay on the bench. Gradowski actually moved the offense to the 1yard line we werent able to score but he moved the ball.

    The sad thing is that cable said the staring job still belonged to jamarcus

    Bench him? Sue him for impersonating a professional quarterback. And sue Al Davis for claiming to support the notion of "Just Win, Baby" at any time in the last 6 years.
