Russell gets with the program

JaMarcus Russell is on site and particpating in the Raiders’ offseason program, the club confirmed without any other comment.

The Raiders have no plans to make Russell available to the media, so there won’t be any opportunity to see if the weight loss alluded to be director of player development Willie Brown is obvious to a casual observer.

Regardless, the Russell story will play out over a protracted period of time and probably won’t get really interesting until he is first viewed in public setting during the first open minicamp.

    ray: Howard & Morrison haven’t signed their tenders, nor have they lined up any visits with other clubs

    fishy? perhaps.

    sounds to me like they want to test the market before signing the cheap 1 year deals in Oakland that might even make them backups. If we don’t add anymore LB’s in the drfat or free agency then Ricky Brown is the wildcard to unseat one of them. Norris & Nixon are longshots to unseat the other …

    In the interview the guy sitting in the truck nwith him is Eddie Anderson. Eddie is a personal trainer and strength coach. Not only is he helping him lose weght but helping him biuld muscle mass in his lower body.

    ——————————————————-

    So much for the posse and hangers on. That was the same guy next to Russell at the TNT basketball game. Looks like Uncle Ray has been replaced!

  • jhill

    Hwnrdr: JR is one of the best starting QB’s in the league already. Just ask Jhill, Debo or Priesttj!

    ——————————————————-

    Best in the league? When did I say that?

    Since when does best QB on the Raiders translate to best in the league?

    I don’t know….I guess I’m just hoping for a 3-4! :(

    I can not and will not forgive JaLoser for the lack of effort and dedication he has showed over the last 3 years. JerryMac probably can because of the traffic JaLoser has generated on his site. If he leads the Raiders to the playoffs(LOL), I will accept him as a Raider but never will root or cheer for him.

    Jhill: I went a little over the top on purpose bro

    you know that. I’m still waiting for a valid argument on how he’s the best QB in Oakland based on production (not potential)

    Since when did 1 off season turn into 3 years. Kiffin and Knapp went out of their way to say how hard Russell was working. First guy there, last to leave stuff.

    He’s just a kid and immature!

    ray: I’m a big fan of the 3-4 defense myself!

    but you gotta have the players & coaches to execute it and i’m not convinced that we do. Even if we add a NT & MLB high in the draft I’m not sure we have the right coaches to implement such a change or if Davis would give the coaching staff enough time to get it going. You always expect a few hiccups up front with a system or scheme change.

    Wait a minute……when I was his age I was taking care of business! Nevermind!!!!

    *************************

    LMAO!!! That was his younger brother. He goes everywhere with Jamarcus.

  • jhill

    RRS,

    We all know the only valid argument is what happens on the field. He is the best talent (yes, potential) on the team.

    His new room mate Eddie Anderson puts things right back on track to where Kiffin had the development, IMO.

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    That guy in the interview in the truck was his younger brother, and is barely 21 years old.

    The guy in Phoenix had grey hairs and was probably over 40, and maybe bigger than Jamarcus.

    Not even close to the same person!!!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jhill: give me the name of 1 other NFL QB who needed a babysitter during the offseason heading into his 4th NFL season.

    and please don’t try to say that Eddie Anderson is Russell’s friend and is just doing it willingly for free to help a brother out.

    It’s already been confirmed that Anderson works for Davis.

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    Eddie Anderson is 46 years old and has no affilation with LSU.

    You telling me a 46 years old man is going to be sitting shotgun manning the stereo, with a college hat on that he never attended??

    LOL…..

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jhill: Darrius Heyward-Bey has the most potential at WR. Does that mean he should start over Schilens, Higgins, Murphy or Watkins?

  • jhill

    Vegas,

    That was Priest’s post first off.

    But I’m looking at the vid now, have it paused, and there is NO WAY that guy is younger than Russell. I’m not going to say it is Anderson, but the guy has a LSU hat on, pulled all the way down. Can’t see if he has gray hair or not. But younger brother? Nah?

    Older brother maybe? Another Uncle?

  • NoMoreFargas

    Russell work ethic has bothered me but lets be honest we stunk long before he got here and it’s not his fault Dmac can’t break tackles, or hold on to football and Dhb is a project at best and last time I checked he doesn’t play D.

    GO RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I laugh every time during combine when they talk about LT arm length and always mention T-Rex Gallery.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Redskins sign Rex Grossman.

    Barry Sims will visit there on Friday…

    I can’t watch the video now, at work, but when I saw it last night, I saw the LSU hat and was pretty sure it was his younger brother. When my buddy wakes up I will get him to identify brother or not.

  • jhill

    Jhill: give me the name of 1 other NFL QB who needed a babysitter during the offseason heading into his 4th NFL season.

    ——————————————————-

    What?

    Why is the issue of him needing a baby sitter an issue at all? I don’t really care about “how” he got in shape. All that matters is that he is in shape, worked on his mechanics, and is trying to get his job back.

    All this other propaganda you’re tossing around mean nothing, IMO.

  • jhill

    but when I saw it last night, I saw the LSU hat and was pretty sure it was his younger brother.

    ——————————————————-

    Because of the LSU hat, you concluded it was his younger brother?

    If it was a Raider hat would that have made it Anderson? I’m telling you, there is NO WAY that guy is younger than Russell.

    You’ve seen me in person. Do I look to be in my 40s? And I’m no physical trainer, lol.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jhill: if he needs a babysitter that means he isn’t self-motivated

    $9.5 million isn’t enough to diet & exercise for 3-6 months?

    Al Davis has to send a company employee to Alabama to make sure he’s not just sitting around the house playing Madden naked eating cheetos …

    problem? I say yes.

    1st to get ther and last to leave. Does not mean he was watching film or lifting weight. Someone said he was there 1st to get his pick of the donuts or pastry and last to leave to finish Rob Ryan’s pizzas.

  • jhill

    You telling me a 46 years old man is going to be sitting shotgun manning the stereo, with a college hat on that he never attended??

    ——————————————————-

    I can’t stand the music my little brother plays when I’m riding with him. Always fuccin with his shyt.

    And I’m sure I’ve had a hat on of a college I didn’t attend, or a company I have no stock in, lol.

    Vegas, I noticed that too. Um, Eddie Anderson never went to LSU and is a lot bigger than the dude with Russell.

    Funny how people can take something and run with it.
