In his third NFL season, Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell is worse than ever.
Russell, who has been benched for Bruce Gradkowski, has completed just 46.8 percent of his passes, worse than in either of his first two seasons. His average gain per pass, touchdown-to-interception ratio and quarterback rating are also the worst they’ve ever been.
Former Eagles quarterback and current ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski says this season’s digression is a sign that Russell is never going to be the Raiders’ franchise quarterback.
I can’t argue with any of this. Russell has been horrible.
