JeMarcus needs to stay away from the southern cooking. Is he under 300 pounds?

Neither have what it takes to be an NFL QB therefore which is worse is material.

Maybe a mentor like McNabb is what he needs. They're somewhat similar in talent makeup. Russell just never learned how to use his skills in the NFL.

If we're down to Beck at QB...we're screwed anyways, so why not throw a not-so-distant #1 overall pick out there and see if he can finally catch on?


OR, see if he can snap and put his 300-pound butt in the center of the line. Finally replace Rabach.

Probably because we're better off letting Beck prove he cannot play than letting JaMarcus continue to prove he can not play.

I don't know, it's stupid we're even talking about this. If anyone but McNabb plays this year, it's because the coaching staff has a ridiculous amount of faith in Grossman for what he has accomplished in his career.

Coach Shanahan is a workaholic.

Why not kick the tires?
I remember Mike Mayock said that Russell's pro-day was the most impressive he'd ever seen.
Talent isn't the issue with Russell its everything else.

It's not cutting into anything else their day doing to include him in a list of people they work out on what is commonly a day to work out unsigned players while the guys on the roster rest

The advantage he has over Rex is 25 vs. 30, basically

End of the day, I think this is probably a non-story. But like I linked earlier, Shanahan has been intrigued (for lack of a better word) in Russell since this past summer

Plus you need someone to throw to the receivers you're working out, so why not give JR a look in the process?

I'd take CrustyRedskin from Butthole Tx over Heyer, and yes, the word on the street is J. Russell was not taking, but making snaps! Heyer should've been gone two years ago!
