By Nick Athan

With all the talk in the offseason about the Chiefs possible interest in Brady Quinn and Jimmy Clausen, Kansas City may have another quarterback option. Thursday marked the end of the JaMarcus Russell era in Oakland and Kansas City would be wise to sign the former Raider.

There may not be a more talented under-achieving third string quarterback in the NFL like former Raider JaMarcus Russell. And heís free to any team that wants to sign the 24-year old former first overall draft pick.

Seriously, the Chiefs arenít likely to take my suggestion seriously but they should. Sure he has hideous mechanics, heís overweight, not the most intelligent field general Iíve seen; but heís 2-0 at Arrowhead as a starter.

How many wins does current Chiefs starter Matt Cassel and his back-up Brodie Croyle have in Kansas City? The same NUMBER as Russell. Cassel has two in 2009 and Croyle has never won at Arrowhead.

So why not take the risk on Russell?

I mean how much fun would it be if new offensive coordinator Charlie Weis can turn Russell into a legitimate NFL starting quarterback. I mean would that not be the biggest slap in the face to Raiders front man .

Remember how mad he was when Marcus Allen jumped from the Raiders to the Chiefs. Davis was convinced that Allen was washed up so he let him go and Allen tortured the Raiders every time they faced the Chiefs over and over again. Davis was at the forefront of the Russell selection even though many NFL scouts thought heíd be a bust.

The problem with Russell is that he really never ran a pro set offense at LSU. Heís known as a street quarterback. Heíd get in the huddle and tell his receivers to just get open and theyíd churn up big yards when they improvised by throwing the ball all over the field. That wonít work in the NFL, though Iíd love to see a wild offense like that from the Chiefs.

Russell, if heís going to salvage his NFL career, really needs to go the right team that can motivate him to get his weight under control, change his attitude, rid him of his entourage and find a way to make him humble.

The team that does just that might get a nice surprise some day.

Russell isnít a bad kid. But he went to arguably the worst organization in football. I think that one factor, not a lack of talent, had more to do with his failures in Oakland than anything else.

This morning every one is making comparisons of Russell to former Quarterback busts like Ryan Leaf, Akili Smith and Heath Shuler. But thatís not fair. Heís far more talented than any of them.

So will the Chiefs make a run for Russell?

I hope they do if for no other reason than to add a fourth quarterback for training camp and to stick it to . It would also give the Chiefs some interesting press and it would put some pressure on Cassel and Croyle.

And imagine this scenario. The Chiefs end the season at Arrowhead on January 2nd. Kansas City and Oakland could be battling for one of the final AFC playoff spots and what if Cassel and Croyle are both hurt. Wouldnít it be something if Russell steps up and beats his former team and sends them back to west coast after a humiliating loss?

While I don't mind the thought of a former #1 overall project QB on the cheap, I can't imagine Pioli and Haley signing a player who is almost exclusively known for being one of the biggest busts in history largely because he has no heart, no passion, no dedication and no love for the game of football. That player is the total opposite of everything they have said they look for in a player.

He is not even a fan of this football team. Clark Hunt does NOT like him. His credentials were stripped last year because of his tendencies, and furthermore, to my knowledge, he still hasn't gotten them back. (Pete Morris would be wise to keep him away from #1 Arrowhead Drive )

All Nick Athan does is feed the masses. He feeds them what they "think" they want to hear. And it's laced with Doom and Gloom about the franchise. He doesn't like Scott Pioli, and he is not even a fan of this football team anymore.

this guy is outta the league, no doubt in my mind. he has no drive, no determination and a crappy work ethic. he might get signed by another team as a third string QB but his bad ways are set in and he likely wont ever change. im just afraid that the raider's might actually be on the upswing now with a halfway decent draft and getting rid of the cancer of their locker room. I still think they will be a very beatable team though

If he comes cheap, give him a shot and put him on the bench for a couple of years.

He'd never last through Haley's military-style training camp, but if he does, he loses the weight, gets into top shape, and is drilled in the head with the plays and improving his overall skills. The guy is supposed to be loaded with talent. A couple of years of maintaining his weight and agility and learning and watching and he just might pan out to be something in a couple of years.

He booted me because I kept pissing off his "paying" members. I don't feel I was intentionally pissing off his paying members, but some of these ****ing trolls needed to be put in their place.

Your videos ARE the best on the net Clay, and I love sharing your work. I know we will never agree on everything that is Chiefs, but I know this:

You are a fan of this football team. And that's what matters to me. Especially when I decide to read something "Chiefs" related.

I think this is a good thing, and I will cross my fingers and hope that it's permanent.

Nick was never shit to begin with.

He's been a documented liar who scams people for the 10 years I've known of him. I know for a fact he makes up stories from the time I worked with him on a website.

He's a carnival worker trying to play journalist.

Anyone advocating for the Chiefs to sign FatMarcus is out of touch with reality.

The guy is lazy, has shit mechanics, doesn't really understand the game.

He has a big arm. Big fucking deal.

I applaud Nick's football acumen, and I spit upon the ignorance of you Chiefs fans that won't even consider giving young Mr. Russell another chance. The problem wasn't Russell, it was Al Davis. When Al negotiated that contract with #1, he tried to include a forfeiture clause that would reduce guaranteed monies based upon performance. That caused #1 to hold out late into his rookie season until finally Al caved. The attempt at a forfeiture clause made #1 feel like Al didn't trust him, and that's the reason he was not motivated. If the Chiefs were to sign Russell without trying to base pay on performance, Russell would play like a new man. He would feel loved. It'll be the single biggest mistake of the Chiefs org if they don't sign Russell. Take the opportunity NOW!!

I think the Chiefs should sign him up, just for the 0.012% chance that he has a re-awakening and decides to become a great QB in the NFL and live up to his draft selection. It would be sooooo sweet to run that in the faiders faces for years to come.

Just read this (free) article and you'll understand why Pioli and Haley would never even consider signing this guy, considering they are only looking for football players whose main passion in life is football...

Lack of Desire Brings End to Russell's Career in Oakland (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/don_banks/05/07/russell/index.html?eref=sihp)

Said one league source with first-hand knowledge of Russell's tenure in Oakland: "He just refused to work at it. That sums up the whole thing. He was in love with the idea of being a wealthy young guy, but he has no drive to be a great quarterback. He's a young guy who came into a lot of money and notoriety by virtue of being the No. 1 pick. But in that situation, unless you have that special motivation, what's the point of working hard? If you already have the money, the only thing that keeps you improving is the work ethic.

"[The Raiders] knew the question about his self-motivation going into the 2007 draft. They gambled, and they lost. I just think he doesn't really want to be an NFL player. He was a great college football player, but he didn't want it in the NFL. If he keeps playing now, he plays only out of boredom. And even Pacman Jones says he's had enough partying and wants to play again. At some point, they all get bored with the other stuff.''

Leagues sources said from start to finish in Oakland, the light never remotely started to come on for Russell as a Raider. His maturity level never ticked upward in a hopeful fashion, and his work habits (or lack thereof) never changed. He wore out something of a path between Oakland and Las Vegas (at least in terms of the flight path), but he flat out refused to wear out much of anything on the practice field or in the weight room. Russell was in love with the lifestyle of being an NFL player, but he was never in love with the game or what it takes to play it.

When I asked a league source what Russell struggled with the most in Oakland, what part of his game, the answer was devastating: "Everything. Every aspect of the position,'' the source said. "If you had a checklist of everything you want your quarterback to do, he chose not to do it. He chose not to study, not to work out, not to be communicative with teammates, not to exhibit leadership, not to get himself into shape. And he struggled with accuracy, with reading defenses, with audibling. They almost had to run a sub-NFL-level offense with him at quarterback. It was that limiting.

"It obviously sucked up a lot of energy from the coaching staff and the management just to get him ready to play every week. Theoretically, you draft a first-round quarterback to help your team. But the Raiders just cut a first-round quarterback to help their team. It's the ultimate addition by subtraction, and you're going to notice a difference in Oakland. [Thursday] might have been a tough day for the rest of the AFC West, because the Raiders just got better.''

He told Schefter that Shanahan would be a Chief, he says the Chiefs were one of six teams considering Penningten, he thought Favre fitted in KC when he announced his return after the first retirement, he goes on TV with Jack Harry and says there is a 50/50 chance that Herm Edwards returns as head coach, there is a 50/50 chance Brian Waters stays on the team. Now JaMarcus Russell should be signed by the Chiefs.

The more I hear/see his work that receives a lot of negative criticize, the more I understand why he gets made fun of so much by fans and even other media outlets.

Like everyone else, I strongly disagree with this move. I'd rather invest on a starting QB from the CFL, AFL, UFL, etc.

Farzin
05-07-2010, 05:27 PM
One last thing, Cassel and Croyle don't have two wins combined at Arrowhead.

Cassel only had one win, VS Pittsburgh in 2009.

Croyle's only win at Arrowhead was when he showed everyone how to execute a QB kneel VS San Francisco in 2006.

But I don't know if you can count that as 2-0 for Cassel/Croyle combined. It's really 1-0 with Cassel being the only one that won at Arrowhead VS Pittsburgh.

Am I missing something?

Favre fits in KC

As the chess game begins between the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Brett Favre, itís clear that one way or another the future Hall of Famer will don a different jersey in 2008. I can think of 31 teams that could use Favre. One of them should be the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the spring of 1993 the Chiefs, at the tail end of Carl Petersonís initial five-year plan, found a way to lure quarterback Joe Montana away from San Francisco. After some tense negotiations between Peterson, Montanaís agent, and the get-him-at-any-cost former owner of the Arizona Cardinals, Bill Bidwill, the Chiefs and 49ers struck a deal.

Montana had two franchises after his services, and it proved to be just the leverage he needed to force a trade from San Francisco. The deal was also an example of Petersonís negotiating ability, as he convinced Montana that he would not be held hostage with a contract that didnít fit KCís salary cap.

In the end, the 49ers wrangled a first-round draft pick away from the Chiefs and everyone was happy. Kansas City benefited from Montana Magic as he led them to the AFC Championship in his first season. In fact, the team hasnít won a playoff game since Montana wore the red and gold.

Now the Chiefs have an opportunity to land Favre. Dťjŗ vu? Perhaps, but the question now is this:

Will Kansas City abandon their youth movement to grab a player whoís capable of delivering a division title, a return to the playoffs, and perhaps more?

Anyone who witnessed Favreís game a year ago at Arrowhead knows he still has a rocket arm. The veteran had the Packers within reach of the Super Bowl last season despite the fact Green Bayís offense wasnít laden with All-Pro talent. They had an average offensive line and a poor running game for much of the season. Fortunately, Favre had a pair of capable wide receivers who could run both crossing patterns and deep routes. The fact that Favre was so successful with those less-than-spectacular elements was enough to convince me that his retirement earlier this offseason might be short-lived.

Right now the Chiefs are a few weeks away from jetting off to River Falls, to begin what I hope is their last training camp in Wisconsin. They are now seven months into their offseason plan of implementing a long-overdue youth movement.

That includes third-year quarterback Brodie Croyle (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=3698850), and both head coach Herm Edwards and offensive coordinator Chan Gailey are firmly entrenched in his camp. For the record, so am I. There is absolutely no doubt that Croyle has the goods to be a solid quarterback in this league.

But the opportunity to work out a trade with the Packers to land Farvre as a teacher and mentor for Croyle might just be worth the loss of a first-day draft pick in 2009. That goes against the current plan in Kansas City, but even a near-40 quarterback like Favre can bring something to the Chiefs.

Packers management isnít all that interested in playing their hand at the moment, but letís be honest - theyíll deal Favre as long as he doesnít go to the Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings or Chicago Bears. Itís a good bet all of those teams would give up their top draft pick next season to land Favre.

Packers general manager Ted Thompson isnít an idiot, either. The way heís built his team the last three years, with outstanding draft classes from top to bottom, should indeed be the model for every NFL team to follow.

However, heís in a losing battle on his position with Favre, because the quarterback is the Green Bay Packers. Heís as influential and important to the fan base as Vince Lombardi was to the face of the franchise in the 1960s. Right now Favre might be even bigger than Lombardi was.

The Packers are in a no-win situation because Favreís desire to return indicates he either believes he can still play at a Pro Bowl level or he wants to collect the final two years of his mega-contract that will earn him nearly $40 million. Though the Packers could easily absorb the cap hit by keeping him on the active roster, theyíre still playing with fire.

The team has put their faith in young quarterback Aaron Rodgers (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=3641936). When he throws his first interception this preseason, fans will boo him Ė wrongly, I might add Ė and theyíll start chanting for their hero, Favre, to replace him. Itís totally unfair, but itís as inevitable as gas prices reaching $5.00 per gallon in September.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, really donít need Favre. Heíd be a luxury, however, one the team can afford with their plentiful salary cap space. It would also be great PR for a team many believe will finish last in the AFC West this season. The media attention would be 10 times what it was for the Chiefs during the Montana era. Thatís good for business, especially when youíre in the midst of rebuilding a stadium.

If the Chiefs acquired Favre, Croyle would wind up in the same spot Rodgers was in Green Bay over the last couple of seasons. Iím not sure how Croyle would handle having Favre on the team.

Initially, I imagine heíd embrace it, because heís a professional and when you come from a quarterback lineage of Bart Starr, Joe Namath and Kenny Stabler at Alabama, another legend isnít going to faze you.

Would adding Favre stunt Croyleís development? Maybe so. Thatís the risk the Chiefs have to take if theyíre willing to enter trade talks with Green Bay.

But realistically, playing for the Chiefs wonít likely be Favreís first choice. He wants to play for the Miami Dolphins or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But that might not be his call, and the Packers would be smart to ship him to an AFC team that wonít appear on their schedule this year or next.

That leaves a remote chance that the Chiefs could have a serious shot at Favre. If they do make a run at him, it would certainly make for an interesting three weeks in River Falls. Like last year with HBO's Hard Knocks, it would once again put the Chiefs at the forefront of NFL coverage before the season kicks off in New England.

2. I didn't take Phil's job. I didn't stab him in the back. We had distinctly separate jobs. He can verify all of that.

3. I didn't get screwed. I still consider Nick a close friend. He does write some crazy things from time to time, though.
