Raiders | Gannon questions team's handling of Russell

Steve Corkran, of the Bay Area News Group, reports former Oakland Raiders QB Rich Gannon questions the way the team has handled QB JaMarcus Russell early in his pro career. Gannon wonders why the team did not instill a better sense of work ethic, particularly a commitment to film study, during his rookie campaign. "That's mind-boggling how, in this day and age, whether it be a coordinator, or a head coach or a position coach, wouldn't demand that the guy come in on Tuesdays and do the work, or watch the film and make the preparation." Gannon said in an interview on KNBR radio. "And to make this comment a couple of weeks ago, and say, 'Well, now we're going to make him learn how to be a pro.' Well, what were they doing the first year and a half that they had him?"
