Pretty scathing criticism there. Would feel pretty concerned if those accusations were legit.

He hasn't had the support throughout his career from a close to decent O-Line or WR and has never lived up to his first overall pick potential.

If he doesn't perform for the rest of the year, he will be labelled a bust, despite the lack of talent around him. I did hear that he was overweight last offseason, but if all of those allegations are true, the raiders need serious changes from coaching staff, administration and players.

I was talking about his really shit performances in the last 2 seasons. He has no excuse for being over-weight and lazy.

I said before the last draft that O-line was our biggest concern. To think that we could have slotted in Oher at right tackle (instead of the awful Cornell Green) and still taken a good receiver with a second-round pick annoys the hell out of me.

JaMarcus deserves to be cut some slack for playing behind a line that, with the exceptions of Robert Gallery at left-guard and Mario Henderson at left-tackle, is disgraceful. Also, look how many drops McFadden, Murphy and DHB have made on decent balls this year. They've done him no favours. Schilens can catch, and is fit again which is timely.

We need to really focus on the O-line for next season, to get Russell and McFadden/Bush the protection they need to play to their potential. If that's not priority #1 on the recruiting front, Davis really has lost what marbles he has left.

It really shows how much of a shit organisation the Raiders are. People say that it was stupid going for DHB and they should have picked Crabtree or Maclin, what about the real problem on offense? You can almost bet that Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson would all struggle behind it. Al Davis has some sort of obssession with speed. What was worse was the second round safety Michael Mitchell who was projected to not even be drafted. The worst example would have to be in 2000, the drafting of Kicker Sebation Janikwski in the first round.

There were some very good lineman in the draft this year including Eugene Monroe who was availible at their pick and was projected on the 2nd picks. The Raiders have problems everywhere as I aid above, Russell isn't the only problem.

I actually don't mind Mitchell, in spite of the price. Would like to see him competing with Tyvon Branch to be paired up with Huff next season, allowing Hiram Eugene to leave during free-agency. Fixing the O-line would basically fix the team: helps get a passing game going and bolsters the running game, takes a lot of pressure off the D too.
