    No way Russell is the biggest bust. I never thought of him as a top QB in the league before he was drafted (and obviously now). It's Al Davis's fault for picking him at number one.

    I think it is a toss up between ryan leaf and jamarcus russell. For russell to show up at almost 300 pounds.......wow. But see I want to give jamarcus the beefit of the doubt being in Oakland......nvrmnd that is no excuse showing up out of shape and not knowing the playbook.

    Maybe you didn't think of him as one...but the rest of the NFL did. The year he came out there was no debate. Liek Ryan Leaf had to live in Peytons shadow. Who will be better blah blah blah...at the time if you remember Russell was the hands down best QB in the draft. The next wasn't taken until no. 22.

    Not only was Russell out of shape but, if you believe the reports, dude didn't even put in the time learning plays. Took the money and ran.
