Raiders | JaMarcus Russell critical of former coach

Former Oakland Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell said during an interview that he felt betrayed by his former head coach, Tom Cable. Russell said he felt as if he was the scapegoat for everything that went wrong during his tenure with the team. "I stuck my neck out for him," Russell said. "Didn't complain when he benched me as the starter. Didn't complain when he called the same plays five damn times. Didn't (badmouth) him to other coaches. When the (media) asks me, I say, 'He's a good coach, a good guy.' Then I hear he says I was the worst thing ever that happened to the Raiders, if it weren't for him we'd be in the playoffs? ... It just got to where the game wasn't fun for me."
