Senile Al is so set in his ways, that his once proud franchise is a joke. How many QB's are the Raiders going to pass on in the 1st round while they sign guys who haven't played in years, were mid round draft pick flame outs with other teams?
Drafting McCown does not equal passing on Russell.
The theory is that McCown holds down the fort till Russell is ready. For a 4th or 5th rounder, it doesn't seem like a bad price. Unless you have evidence they are ready to anoint McCown the QB of the future?
