Raiders | Garcia critical of players

Sat, 03 Oct 2009 07:10:44 -0700

Steve Corkran, of the Oakland Tribune, reports free-agent QB Jeff Garcia (Eagles) said during a radio interview Friday, Oct. 2, he asked to be released from the Oakland Raiders before the start of the season because of a lack of commitment from some players and him being powerless to effect change as a backup quarterback. "It was to a point where I felt like guys who walked through those doors were just there to collect a check and not really interested in putting everything they had within themselves onto the football field," Garcia said. Garcia added he didn't mind helping QB JaMarcus Russell develop into a better player. However, he felt as if too much was being asked of Russell and that, perhaps, Russell is not ready for a starring role. "It's an unfortunate situation when the entire work ethic and the entire goal of the team is really put upon one guy's shoulder who really isn't maybe ready for that situation or ready to take on that sort of responsibility," Garcia said.
