Who Will Quarterback The Oakland Raiders In 2014?

George Blanda. Dan Pastorini. Ken Stabler. Jim Plunkett. Four greats to wear the Silver and Black. Not - those four players are a distant memory. And the football they once threw for the Oakland Raiders is as flat as a tackle from Lyle Alzado.These are not the Oakland Raiders of the past - the ones who took no prisioners but kicked their oppoents in the groin each week onto AFC West...

Jim Plunkett, former New England #1 draft pick, was no Tom Brady

Throughout the history of the New England Patriots organization, they’ve had their share of draft successes at the quarterback position (maybe heard of Tom Brady?), but they’ve also had some failures.

It was for the same reason that he hasn...

The next Jim Plunkett? Why JaMarcus Russell deserves a second chance in the NFL.

As a Raiders fan it is hard for me to fathom seeing JaMarcus Russell in an NFL jersey but he deserves another shot in the NFL. I saw firsthand how incompetent and unmotivated JaMarcus Russell was as an NFL quarterback. I remember the holdout, the stopping of practice to find his earring, and the Tony Siragusa-like belly. One cannot even utter the name JaMarcus Russell to members...

Many Words About the Huskies

Andrew Luck is the perfect human.  He oozes off-the-field character that somehow applies to his on-the-field performance.  He has all the physical tools; he’s the next Jim Plunkett.  No, the next John Elway.  No, the next Peyton Manning.  He’s as smart as Steve Jobs and as athletically gifted as Bryan Clay. He motivates his teammates like Kennedy, yet is results-oriented like FDR.
