Raiders | Elway worried for Russell, rips organization

Bill Williamson, of ESPN.com, reports former Denver Broncos QB John Elway wrote in a column for the Sporting News that Oakland Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell's best chance to succeed in the NFL is to get out of Oakland. "JaMarcus Russell's only chance at NFL success is to get out of Oakland. OK, maybe that's harsh. But we all know it's his best chance at success," Elway said. Elway went on to criticize managing general partner Al Davis. "The fastest way to ruin a quarterback is to put him on a bad team, with a bad line, with no weapons, with no continuity in the coaching staff. That pretty much describes the current Raiders. The game has passed Al Davis by, and he's the only one who doesn't know it. Every time the Raiders get a good coach - Mike Shanahan, Jon Gruden, Norv Turner, etc. - who doesn't buy into Al's outdated program, he fires him."
