Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson acknowledged some of the issues raised by former QB JaMarcus Russell during his three-year stay in Oakland, while at the same time saying they weren't the reason he was waived. Russell said in an interview he didn't get support from his teammates or former head coach Tom Cable. Jackson said he was told by Russell of the sleep apnea and "some of the things he'd gone through, but that's not the reason he's not here. I think there were several other factors, things that we don't need to get into."

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."

"Now, I think that group of players, moving forward, they can do something really cool, and I hope they do. I'm proud of 'em. I was very honored to coach 'em, and work with those assistant coaches, and that's how I feel about it ... For them moving forward, I wish Hue the best, and for him and those players to do something with it now because it's in place and it's set up to do that."
