I doubt it is permanently and I doubt Cable had any say in it. He just follows the bosses orders. Gradowski is not an NFL starting QB but he cannot be any worse than Russell. I think they are just trying to light a fire under Russell to see how he responds. Face it, no rookie QB can succeed in a dysfunctional organization like Oakland's with Al Davis calling all the shots. Al will be looking for a veteran QB for next year. I don't think he will draft one too high.

He'll have AD taking off a lot of the pressure, as well as a strong young WR core. He really wouldn't have to do much to succeed there, plus being around someone who trains as hard as AD would more than likely rub off on him.
I'm certainly not a 100% sure he will ever be successful but there will be 31 teams lining up to give it a try, all believing Al Davis screwed any chance he coud succeed in Oakland. The franchise is a total mess and young players are lost on that team. The HC is below bad, just a 'yes man' to Al Davis and the players know it.

There will not be 31 teams lining up to give Jamarcus Russel a try, sorry.

I disagree. Almost every GM will figure that Russell had zero chance to develop in Al Davis's excuse for an organization. They will all wonder what Russell could accomplish if he landed with a team that had a sound organization and a solid HC. They would want to see if their HC and the veterans on their team could inspire Russell to work his butt off. With his arm, every team will want a shot at his services even if he turns out to be a flop. If Oakland allows him to enter FA, it will cost peanuts to give him another shot with the financial risk minimal for the potential reward.
Oakland is a dead franchise waiting for Al Davis's demise. As long as he owns the team, they won't see daylight even if they drafted another Peyton. Nobody can be really successful in that mess and most would love to get out of Oakland and go to another team.

I'm pretty sure JR will get another chance but his market will be small.

Again I disagree. That arm is going to make practically every GM drool at the potential if they can modivate this kid and as I said previously, the cost will be peanuts to give it a try. QB hungrey teams will line up for sure and even top teams will sit him for a year or 2 to see if they can develop him. See David Carr with the Giants.

I hope Russell moves on to a team with some more talent soon. I'm just not quite ready to write him off, Oakland is a screwed up place.
