ALAMEDA, Calif. Banished to the bench in a disappointing third season, JaMarcus Russell said he still is the quarterback of the future for the Raiders.

"We all have road bumps in our life and this just happens to be one bump," Russell said Thursday in his first public comments since losing the starting job to Bruce Gradkowski last month.

Russell said he was "embarrassed" when he was benched by coach Tom Cable, that his weight and work ethic aren't problems and that he will not renegotiate his contract to take less money than he is owed.

If Russell doesn't throw another pass this season, he will be the first quarterback since 1998 to have a rating less than 50 with at least 200 attempts. Another QB with that mark was Ryan Leaf of the Chargers, perhaps the biggest quarterback draft bust.

Guard Robert Gallery will miss the rest of the season with a lower-back injury.

Woman claims abuse against Ravens' Suggs

BALTIMORE A woman filed a $70 million lawsuit against Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, claiming he is father of her two children and assaulted her multiple times.

Suggs said he has nothing to hide, but he was not able to discuss the case.

"As bad as I want to talk about it right now, I can't," Suggs said.

Candace Williams, 26, is also seeking a restraining order against Suggs, whom she said knocked her down and poured bleach on her and their son.

I wouldn't restructure if I was him either. The writing is on the wall; he needs every cent before he's out of the league.

This is some good news for AFC West teams. Their secondaries can keep their two extra bye weeks as long as he is there.

So he can spend it all on idiotic necklaces most likely.

Raiders should just cut him

He is worthless, and has no intention of trying to get better

It is amazing just how bad the Raiders have drafted

The Raiders need to keep him and play him every game. We need our 2 guaranteed wins a season!

Well he certainly isn't the QB of the present so I guess holding out hope for his CFL or Arena league career is not bad.

"Russell said ..., that his weight and work ethic aren't problems and that he will not renegotiate his contract to take less money than he is owed."

I think that about sums Russell up as a person. Obviously something is the problem but he refuses to accept any part of the blame. He got paid and he don't give a **** what you think.

I doubt there is even a lightbulb to be turned on in his fat head. Stupid Raiders.

Nice. Russell is a douche and believe it or not, even raider fan finally admits it. I think Grandma Al even knows it. That's why Russell wasn't instantly reinstated as the starter after a "closed door" meeting with cable. I think he will remain on the roster for one more year, then get cut. With the Raiders luck, he'll resurface in St Louis and win a superbowl.

I hope Al Davis' ego fires Cable because he refuses to start Russell and then he hires a new coach with the pre-arranged agreement that mandates Russell start every game. Russell knows Al wants him to start and that's why he doesn't push himself. No matter what he does, Al will back him so he'll just keep sucking.

There is no greater red flag on a QB than the college team running a simplified offense like LSU did with Russell, if you can't operate with a full college playbook you will fail in the NFL because the playbooks are a lot more advanced and involved in the pros.

My favorite Quote.

"A totally different JaMarcus," Russell said when asked what people would see when he plays again. "People are going to have their opinion, and I really don't pay too much attention to that. I worry about JaMarcus and JaMarcus only."

Personally I hope the Butt-pirates keep trying to make him into the starting QB. They will never have any success if they do but if Oakland were my team I would find a way to cut him and eat the contract.

Don't they have tests that measure a players Doucheness level?

When you suck that bad, even your 3rd person doesnt want to claim you and you need to go straight to 4th person. That is the guy, you, that wont hear sheat from the 2nd person or even 3rd person. The fall guy of yourself is the 4th person. When you are really drunk, he can be your wing man or your cocked blocker.

You guys just don't get it. Jamarcus is a throwback player. You know, back in the day when guys played multiple positions? At 280lbs., he aspires to be a nose tackle and defensive end between downs.

And he IS the raider's future. Future shock, that is. ;)

Maybe they should move Tommy Kelly to QB and start Russell on Dline. Is Tommy Kelly still on the team?

They only gave him like the highest contract for a defensive tackle ever at that time

True. I have a better chance of beating him by running backwards and giving him a 99 yard headstart.

Mock doesn't think JaMarcus speaking in the 3rd person is wise.

So I asked Jimmy. He said, and I quote.

"Jimmy think he's a douchbag."
