    In honor of Russell’s demise, I shall re-post Russell on Pawn Stars:

    “Russell is a worthless POS. I hope he wasted all of his money like Scottie Pippen, Sprewell, Dykstra, Tyson and Daily….

    Like I said earlier, I look forward to seeing Russell on an upcoming episode of Pawn Stars:

    Episode 212, year 2013:

    Rick: What’ve you got there?

    JR: (inaudible)

    Rick: Sorry, could you speak up?

    JR: Chosen one necklace, diamonds and stuff.

    Rick: What are you looking to do with it? Pawn it, sell it?

    JR: Sell it. I need money for hookers, food and booze.

    Rick: Well, okay, don’t we all? What are you looking to get out of it?

    JR: Three.

    Rick: Three what?

    JR: Three mill.

    Rick: Whoa! Let me take a look at it for a second….

    JR: It is really shiny and has the name of a great NFL quarterback on it, and the chicks love it man.

    Rick: Jamarcus Russell, wasn’t he that quarterback that is considered the biggest draft bust in the history of the NFL? How do you know him?

    JR: (inaudible)

    Rick: What?

    JR: Its me, just give me some money man.

    Rick: Oh sorry, didn’t recognize you. There just isn’t a market for Russell memorabilia….I can tell you that the diamonds themselves are worth something though, I’ll give you 250 thousand.

    JR: What, I paid two million for it! Give me a million.

    Rick: Here is what I will do, I will set up a passing range in the parking lot, and if Chumlee can out throw you with a football I get the necklace for 250 K, if you win I will give you 500K? Sound like a deal?

    JR: Shhhh easy, yeah lets do it.

    (in the back office) Rick: Man I watched this guy play for the Raiders, I didn’t recognize him when he walked in because he now weighs 450 lbs, but he couldn’t throw the ball worth a lick when he was playing, now that he hasn’t seen the football field for three years and looks like he lives at Golden Corral, I like my chances! heck, Chumlee probably would have beaten him in his “prime”!”

    The whole thing was a disaster the moment he arrived here. Best to get beyond it.

    I don’t even feel like saying “I told you so.”

    This is what I asked for a million times, but it’s still depressing. I always hoped deep down that fatass would turn it around. I hope he’s 450lbs and broke by Thanksgiving.

  • stoopidmike

    I’m sure JaMarcus is booking a flight to Vegas right now.

  • MistaBrown

    Nice back tracking fraud! Why dont you call yourself a stupid turd for having that losers back for 3 years!

    I am still not giving up on Russell.
    I have his poster over my bed, and everynight when I fall asleep, I abuse my self just thinking about his milky thighs.
    Oh darn, getting wet again.

    …..”drill baby drill” or that Sarah Palin is a genius, or…..

  • 8RaiderReign8

    Oh glorious day in Raider Nation. I will for today only say “Good Raider to you” and “isn’t it great Raider today?”

    But seriously, they were making me a little worried about the delay. However, it is done. Now with the money we saved, let’s sign TO.

    2010 Best season ever!!!!!!!!!

  • M Lonetree

    The veil of malaise is lifted.
    Blinking at the beckoning light, the Raider Nation chances first a glowing delight at the newly revealed surroundings, and then despite knowing the work to be done, bursts into great joy of knowing that a large mass holding them back has been lifted and is become someone else’s problem.

  • kvnbntly

    finally, now a deserving qb can get the first team reps, and the jadistraction can be jagone and we don’t have to read ja jokes anymore.

    Rockstar,

    My buddy who hung out with Jamarcus last year told me before last season Jamarcus always talked about life after football. Acted as if being an NFL QB was a burden not a priviledge.

    I think he is done. The phone may ring, but he probably won’t answer.

    SeymourGlenn, you are a liar and a fraud!

    Happy Bday Dakota;

    ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders have released former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell after three unproductive and highly paid seasons.
    Senior executive John Herrera told The Associated Press the move was made Thursday and that “we wish him well.”

    The decision comes less than two weeks after Oakland acquired Jason Campbell from Washington to take over at quarterback.

    Russell will now likely be considered the biggest draft bust in NFL history. He will have been paid more than $39 million by the Raiders, while producing only seven wins as a starter.

    He lost his starting job midway through last season. His career has been hampered by a rookie holdout, poor work habits, being overweight and the lack of productive players around him.

  • El Tato

    He is going to the COLTS, just wait and see.

    - JaMarcus is a family Manning old time friend.
    - They dont have a backup (Painter, Hiller, Willy)
    - He can learn after Manning (maybe the best ever QB)

    JaMarcus will be signed by another team within a month, as bad as he was he’s still more talented than Trent Edwards. Im predicting the Bills will sign him.

    Oakland PD have put out a warrant for Russells’ arrest the charge, grand larceny.

    Being cut was probably the BEST thing that could’ve happened to Russell.

    we should throw a party with a bonfire; we will throw all the #2 memorabilia in it and watch it burn! but then again why would any want to watch dog $hit burn

  • No Mas Diamante

    Wow. What a waste (waist)… I admit that I was hoping the light would finally go for the guy but obviously never happened. I certainly feel much better about this upcoming season now. Welcome Jason campbell and hopefully at least three more wins than last year…

  • Tom "pimp hand" cable

    patriots, vikings, or colts. Most likely the pats will sign that bum.
