    Just how in the past are these guys living? George has not thrown a pass in five years. Well, at least he's fresh. :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl:

    At least the Turds aren't making desperation moves. :icon_banana: :icon_party: :icon_banana:

    Raiders sign Jeff George
    JOSH DUBOW
    Associated Press
    ALAMEDA, Calif. - The Oakland Raiders signed Jeff George to a contract Monday, bringing back a player who hasn't thrown an NFL pass in five seasons.

    George, the No. 1 overall pick by Indianapolis in 1990, joined the team in time for Monday's afternoon practice. He previously played for the Raiders in 1997-98, starting 23 games and throwing 33 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

    It is not immediately clear what his role will be on the Raiders, who already have Aaron Brooks, Andrew Walter and Marques Tuiasosopo on the roster.

    George, who was a high school star at Warren Central in Indianapolis, played with the Colts from 1990-93. He was in Atlanta from 1994-96, then spent two seasons with Oakland and one with Minnesota before joining the Redskins in 2000, first as a backup. He was signed by Seattle as insurance midway through the 2002 season, but didn't play. Chicago signed him late in the 2004 season, but he never played for the Bears either.

    George, known for his strong arm and clashes with coaches, has a 46-78 career record as a starter and has never lasted longer than four years with any one of them.

    George hasn't played since 2001, when he was cut after two games with the Redskins. In his last two games with Washington, George had a quarterback rating of 34.6, completing 23 of 42 passes with three interceptions.

    In his next-to-last game with Washington, he and coach Marty Schottenheimer had an animated sideline discussion after George committed four turnovers and was removed from the game.

    George also had a sideline argument with coach June Jones when he was with the Atlanta Falcons in 1996, and the team suspended him and then cut him.

    George played well his first season in Oakland, throwing for 3,917 yards and 29 touchdowns in 1997. He struggled with injuries the following season, starting only seven games, and was replaced the following season by Rich Gannon, who was a better fit in coach Jon Gruden's West Coast offense.

    The Raiders are definitely going past to the back.

    Jeff George is essentially a Caucasian Aaron Brooks.

    He's worse. His career record as a starter is 46-78

    Wow, what a player.

    So, instead of promoting Walter to the #2, they bring in this guy.

    The Raiders may end up carrying 4 QBs, none of whom are any good:

    Aaron Brooks
    Jeff George
    Andrew Walter
    Marques Tuiasasopo

    Don't knock Jeff George. At least he can throw the ball in the right direction, which is more than we can say for their current starter.
