One day, Buffalo won't be linked to every garbage QB

In case you hadn't heard, earlier Thursday, the Oakland Raiders released quarterback JaMarcus Russell. The first overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, Russell is widely considered one of the biggest draft-day busts in NFL history, and the fact that he lounged his way out of Oakland in three years despite the monetary investment the team made in him speaks volumes to just how far his star has fallen.

Of course, folks will insist that his talents make him worthy of a look from other NFL teams, and, of course, the Buffalo Bills have already entered the discussion. From Aaron Wilson at the National Football Post:

It's unclear where Russell will land, but the Buffalo Bills would seem like a logical destination.

No. No, I'm sorry. There are hundreds of logical destinations for JaMarcus Russell; the vast majority of them are all-you-can-eat buffets. None of them are NFL franchises.

Is this even for real? That can't be a legitimate opinion, Mr. Wilson. There's a difference between not having a franchise quarterback and being so desperate that you'd actually consider signing a lazy, overhyped quarterback that adds absolutely nothing of value to an NFL franchise. I get why it's imperative that Buffalo is linked to every single available quarterback under the age of 65; that doesn't make it even remotely "logical."

No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. We'll stick with our four-man competition, thank you very much. There's no need to add a fifth, sixth and seventh.

It's time for a poll. I'm actually legitimately interested in the results, and would appreciate your taking a moment to really consider the options before casting your vote.
