    As much as I've stuck up for JaMarcus and blamed a lot of the woes on the franchise, he has to be held accountable for his regression in his throwing accuracy.

    I suppose it doesn't help your confidence when you come out, and the first pass of the season bricks off someone's hands.

    Really though, he went from a guy that had a pretty good TD/INT ratio for such a young guy without any receivers around him(13:8 I believe?) to a guy that was overthrowing swing passes and completing 35% of his passes.

    Was his confidence destroyed? You can blame that, but ultimately, you have to keep your composure, or the best you can ever be is a decent QB when the team has a ton of talent.

    I'm still just perplexed by his accuracy woes. I mean, decision making, maturity, weight fluctuations, those were all question marks anyway, and him never improving on that shows his work ethic, but he used to be able to put the football anywhere he wanted with a flick of the wrist.

    Gradkowski is a guy who is confident and swaggalicious no matter how ****** up things get, he's been on ****** up teams before..... Those kind of guys can help you overachieve a little sometimes, but ultimately it's a stop gap.

    I'd like to see Russell go somewhere else, or see if someone can mold him. Alex Smith is showing out now, but Russell was better last year than Smith ever was prior to this season, IMO.

        Did you just call The Bruce Gradkowski a stop gap? I think you did. Well let me tell you something about "Badass" Bruce Gradkowski...

        When he was growing up on the mean streets of Pittsburgh, PA he was always picked last to play football with the other kids. Most of the time that would destroy a kid's confidence but no, not Bruce. See, Bruce was a special guy. There was nothing friendly when he was on the playground because Bruce doesn't play. Playground? **** that. That's a warground and Bruce is always prepared for battle. When the starting quarterback on his flag football team went down, Bruce got in there and unleashed hell. Even as a tyke he possessed a laser, rocket arm and could deliver the football with pin-point accuracy.

        One day after school, the high school football coach saw him throwing footballs twenty yards downfield at a makeshift target. You know what he was throwing at? A pack of gum, Juicy Fruit, and hitting it every time. Coach walked up to him and said "hey, kid, you should play football. We need a QB with that kind of arm." Ya know what Bruce said "**** yeah. Wanna piece of gum?"

        That's the kind of kid Bruce Gradkowski is. Swagger. Style. Grace. 6'1", 220lbs, of real deal sex appeal. A lot of famous quarterbacks are from the area he's from. Joe Montana, Dan Marino, Joe Namath, Johnny Unitas. You know what sets Bruce apart? Two things: 1) His name's not Joe. It's Bruce, ya'heard? 2) He wiped his ass with their records. That high school record set by Dan Marino? Yeah, he broke that. Crushed that **** just like he crushes that ass at his crib.

        While he was at Toledo, he had to start his sophomore year? Psh, no biggie. Know what Bruce did? He set a record. He set a Mid-American Conference season record by completing 71.2% of his passes. He threw for 3,210 yards, with a school season record of 29 touchdowns and 7 interceptions and a final passer rating of 161.53. You know what? There is no thing as a 161.53 passer rating. They had to set a new number because Bruce breaks records.

        Finally, it's his time to shine and just like in grade school, he was picked close to last. This time Tampa Bay picks him in the 6th round. But ya know what? That wasn't a challenge for him. Tampa Bay? Too easy to turn around. Next stop on the Grad train, St. Louis? Psh. Too easy. The Grad-man needs a challenge. Off to Cleveland? He started the last game of the season for Cleveland afterward the Browns cut him. Was it because he sucked? No. He was a threat to Brady Quinn. Finally, Bruce chose the Raiders. Did Al Davis find this phenom waiting to be unleashed? No. Bruce called the Raiders and said "Do you want a Super Bowl?" So, now he's on the Raiders. He came to Oaktown to wave his balls around and make bitches swoon. While he's doing that he's also going to win some games because THE Bruce Gradkowski makes things happen.

        Washington, Denver, Cleveland, Baltimore... Get ready. Hide your women. Stay late for practice. Study film over and over because the Polish Cannon is getting ready to jizz all over your defenses.

          This pretty much sums up what Bruce The God Gradkowski is about.

                Al doesn't care. The biggest red flag for me that I could remember was at the combine. I don't remember him doing ANYTHING, though someone could correct me if I'm wrong. That's when I knew there was potential risk involved with him. I will admit I bought into hype after the bowl game, but as the process went along I started clamoring for CJ, like most other fans.

                  Well to be fair top QBs usualy dont do much. He could just ride the hipe and go #1 overall. Agents tend to suggest these kids they should not take a risk in that situation. He did everything at his pro day and he was great (unfortunately).

                  The problem at the combine was showing up overwheight! Then he pushes himself to be in great shape for the pro day, gets picked #1 overall, holded out for his money, got it and could not care less from that point. After signing he came in overwheight again and played yo-yo ever since. This year it's been specialy atrocious. He was so fat in OTAs you could not make any excuse anymore. It was just an obvious disaster.

                      I think you are mistaking Bruce Gradkowski for a different, sexier QB, whose name rhymes with Brossman...Just sayin, Sexy Rexy is gunna bounce back better then ever.

                        Who do you think Bruce was tutored bye? Little known story: After the Sex Cannon was drafted by Chicago, he traveled to Toledo for their spring game during Gradkowski's sophomore year. They went out in downtown Toledo, drank a few bars out of business, and left a trail of women in their wake that weren't able to walk straight for a week. That night, Toledo's Finest Polish Cannon was born and that year he would go on to set MAC records and school records. Also, nine months after the Sex Cannon came to town Toledo saw a spike in the birth rate.

                        True story.

                                Yeah? He still led the offense to three more yards in the second half against Washington than Chris Simms could. Jamarcus Russell is like Peyton Manning compared to Chris ******* Simms.
