    There seems to be no shortage of opinions on embattled Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell. Most of those opinions are not favorable. Even when coming from his coach, Tom Cable.

    Former Redskins QB Joe Theismann, however, took the Russell criticism to a level that would even make American Idol judge and noted sourpuss Simon Cowell blush. Theismann, while appearing on “Moving the Chains on Sirius NFL Radio” with hosts Tim Ryan and Pat Kirwan, said that the Raiders should make a deal for Jason Campbell.

    Not necessarily because Campbell is so good, but because Russell is so bad.

    “If I was the Oakland Raiders, I would be on the phone with (Redskins GM) Bruce Allen and see what kind of deal we could make for Jason Campbell,” Theismann said. “Because I can tell you conclusively that JaMarcus Russell will never be able to play quarterback in the National Football League.

    “He’s 290 pounds. At 265 he’s too big. He’s inaccurate and he’s too big. And he doesn’t thrown the ball well.

    “JaMarcus just doesn’t get it. And to think that you take a strong-armed guy and you put him in Oakland and say that it’s the old Oakland Raiders. Jason Campbell can do everything for you.”

    Wow, even a hug from Paula Abdul will not help you overcome a tongue-lashing like that.


    :lol:

    This is the same Joe Theismann who, two years ago during a Sunday Night football broadcast, said "I like the direction Al Davis has the Raiders going in!" :icon_rofl:

    Theisman has a penchant for stating the obvious.

    He must really hate Russell, since all he used to do on MNF was blow the qbs for 3 hrs.
