FanPost

We're apparently not desperate enough yet.




Just a quick rant before I head off to work, fellow rumblers. Last night, paythemannow put up a fanpost suggesting we give a shot to JaMarcus Russell. What irked me about this is the nearly unanimous response of "we don't want him." Really, guys? Are we not consistently the laughingstock of the NFL? Is 13 years not a long enough playoff draught for you? We need to start taking risks if we're going to claw our way back to the top. Will JaMarcus Russell get us there? Who the heck knows? As he is now, probably not. But the guy has an insane amount of potential. Yeah, he needs to lose weight, and a lot of it. But he's working on that. Check out the link in paythemannow's post. He looks genuinely committed to making a comeback. So take a shot on him. Give him a two year contract at vet minimum and say, "look. you've got to prove to us you can do this. Get to this weight goal by final cuts and you make the 53 man roster. Keep it going and prove to us you've still got that monster arm that got you drafted so high and you have your fair shot at a starting job. If you can't do that, see ya!" What's the harm? We lose our 3rd QB spot to someone who isn't qualified? So the status quo, it is. We as fans have suffered through some terrible teams. What's the harm in taking shots on low risk/ high reward guys like Russell? Are we really above that, as a team and as a fan base?
