Even Darth Raider wasn't stupid enough to throw another $6 million down the doughnut hole at the end of May. ;)

There must be something seriously wrong with Al Davis. I mean first they get a decent draft and then this.

Well this only makes Al look bad. You would think to salvage whatever reputation you have by trying to keep the player that's about to bust for one more to see if he can prove himself and save face for Al and himelf, but apparently not.

This goes to show, not only is Jamarcus a bust, so is Al.

Hey Jamarcus, i heard the local burger king is hiring. You might want to look into that. All jokes aside though, give him 3-5 years and he will be bankrupt.

JaMarcus has been cut.

Is Ryan Leaf still the biggest bust? Imo JaDumba** is now the biggest bust and we've lifted that dishonorable mention from the Chargers. Interesting that Davis fired Kiffin because he didn't like Russell.

Campbell wasn't a world beater in Washington, and he'll be even less of one in Oakland.

They'll be solid on defense... for as long as the defenders can put up with carrying the team on it's back... they should have a decent running game. Assuming they can block for their backs; say what you want, but, Bush, Vargas and McF are pretty talented... I just don't see how sucessful they'll be throwing the ball.

Fargas has been released - McFadden is on the verge of full on bust material.

The Raiders offense will be improved - I just don't expect all that much of an improvement given that Campbell is an ordinary check-down passer at best and their run game is OK.

They still need big help on both sides of the line.

I posted about the same thing in another thread. Things seem different I'm wondering if Uncle Al is listening to some people. I'm not going to say the Raiders had a good draft I'll call it a different draft -Drafts cant be judged until a couple years later in my opinion-. Cutting Russell loose, the fact that Cable still has his job is one that sticks out the most with me. Cable may not have his job a year or two from now but he has it now. I wonder if maybe some people declined to even interview for the position and that woke Al up. Something is up but they still need to fix a lot of things.

I'm actually sorry to see him go. It was comforting knowing that he would be starting against us.

This guy has made more in 3 years than the entire Chargers messageboard has. Unbelievable.

I honestly feel sorry for the guy lol. I think i'm too sympathetic. Always had that problem. He's never done anything terrible as far as i'm aware not like the stories i've heard about Leaf anyway. Can't even make the cut on the Raiders.

I am still not worried about the Raiders though. However as CTom said one day the law of averages will catch up with us. Their bound to win one sooner than later.

Also i don't have the hatred towards the Raiders since i don't live in Cali. I hate the donks tho hahahaha.

Hatred towards the Raiders is vital for historical reasons. Goes back to the AFL days. Al Davis apparently took a real dislike to the Chargers because Sid Gillman wouldn't lend him a kicking tee (things were a bit low-budget in those days). I spent 4 years in college at U.C. Berkeley, just North of Oakland, and actually lived in Oakland for a couple of years. This was in the late 70's / early 80's. I quite had my fill of the Raiders in those years. The "Holy Roller" play occurred just before I left Southern California for school, in September, 1978.
Hatred for the Broncos is also vital for historical reasons. Also, their fans tend to be beer-swilling fools.
For some reason I can't fathom, I really hate the Kansas City Chiefs. My hatred is puzzling, as I generally like cities, towns, and people in the Mid-West. Could be genetic: I had a grandfather who was a successful bootlegger there, until the local mob invited him to stop (he took the invitation, and lived another 50 years).

He was a Leaf-clone; an immature idiot signed to a massive contract that did nothing for his organization, except terrorizing Oakland dinner buffets. Al Davis should have regulated him to passing out game programs at the gate, but that required him to actually work and Cable knows he would've fumbled those hand-offs.

I only hope the Donkeys or Jets sign him as their back-up.

Those all sound like great reasons to be a Charger fan! It's fun isn't it? I already miss LT ...

I don't know why any of you Chargers fans wanted to have him kicked off the Raiders ... he was a god-send! I loved Jamarcus Russell! When I was watching Raider games, I was counting the mistakes!

Overthrow here, underthrown there, not thrown at all, poor decision; and then it was even more fun when he actually had a decent game, but the receivers dropped the pass and screwed it up for him; it was so much fun!

The Raiders were hateful and hated. They were filled with nasty and dirty players and had our number for many years. They kept us from going to the Super Bowl when we had by far our best chance. In the Fouts years, Al Davis would water the Oakland Coliseum field the night before games against the Chargers to make it soggy and slow down the high powered "o". And, of course, the holy roller play which I witnessed. Of course, there are the uniforms and their fans. It was scary back in the day when the Raiders came to San Diego. Always more fights and a darker atmosphere.

These days its hard to work up more than pity for them altho they are getting stronger.

I've never had the hate for the Chiefs or the Broncos. In fact, the Len Dawson era Chiefs with Otis Taylor, Mike Garrett, Buck Buchanon and Willie Lanier were one of my favorite all time teams. The Chargers were entering their Harland Svare swoon those days and not much to watch.

Those that do not hate the Raiders have never attended a game at the Q when the Raiders were based in LA. For that matter probably never been up to Oakland to catch the Chargers there either. The history between the two teams is long and for the fans it's been a hateful history on both sides as there has been plenty of fights and blood spilled over the years.

This is bad news. Even when the Chargers underachieved against the Raiders, they could always count on Russel to win the game for them.

This might be the year they finally get a win against us. What sucks is that they will act like they won the superbowl.

I did go to a Raiders game up in Anaheim back in 1989. The fans were extremely mean and the game was secondary to all the fights that kept occurring up in the stands.

Counter point - The guy has a cannon, test scored at 24, and is cheap. Sing him to be the #3 and let him work on his game for a couple of years in the background. If he comes about, you move ala whitehurst and get something for this reclamation project.

Russel. He got paid A LOT more money. Furthermore Ryan Leaf had massive problems, but he started to turn it around until the injuries. Leaf had some flashes and could at least move his head. Plus no one ever said, like they did with Russel to the effect of: "I don't think he is able to control the velocity of his throws, he throws the same whether it is long or short"

In addition the Chargers never had to cut one side of the field for leaf one year and work on the other part the next year.
