JaMarcus Russell: Redefining Rock Bottom

ESPN - Former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell has been charged with possession of a controlled substance -- codeine syrup -- after being arrested at his home in Alabama on Monday, authorities said.

We have to re-examine the whole "biggest bust of all time" thing. It goes without saying that Ryan Leaf at least WAS the worst draft pick in NFL history. San Diego took the Leafster at number 2 in 1998, and from them on made an art of shitting himself on and off the football field. After he left the NFL, he took a job as a college coach at West Texas A&M. He certainly thrived there, as he ended up stealing drugs, getting arrested, fired, and checking into rehab.

But now it appears that Mr. Russell is well on his way to stealing the title of "Worst Bust Ever" from Ryan Leaf. Think about it. This guy got $36 million over his brief stint in Oakland, funding a glorious Raider career of 23 interceptions, 15 fumbles, and a 65.2 passer rating. And was a number 1 pick. Leaf at least had the luxury of being a number 2 pick, and getting picked after Peyton Manning.

Meanwhile, the Raiders could have paid ME $1 to out-clown JaMarcus. I don't think I could have been much worse. Holy shit he sucked. Keep chugging that codeine bro.
