Default So...this guy beat our defense with the season on the line

He skipped the team's wrap-up meeting and was spotted at the Palms...I can't believe he turned it on for one drive when our season was in the balance

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...but-not-vegas/

Jamarcus Russell and Richard Seymour were the only two Raiders to miss the team's year-end meeting Monday.

Since coach Tom Cable gave Russell a hall pass, saying he was excused for "personal reasons," we weren't even sure the news was postworthy. Now it is.

Going on a tip from a commenter, Oakland Tribune columnist Cam Inman dialed the Palms in Las Vegas to see if Russell was checked in. He was. (Tip to JaMarcus: Use the name "Ron Mexico" next time.)

Russell is free to do anything he wants in his free time. Maybe he even had a legitimate excuse to miss the meeting, then book it to Vegas.

But considering his disastrous season, not to mention his compensation, we'd think Russell would make damn sure he completed his obligations to his team and show up for the meeting like everyone else before hitting the slot machines.

We would say this should be the last straw for Russell in Oakland, but let's be real. The man covering for him Monday, Tom Cable, is a lot less likely to be a Raider in 2010.

hahaha Classy! I love the Palms though...I can only imagine having millions in my account and going there. I could get into some trouble!

He's just another example of Al Davis' foolishness

We can thank Nolan for turning it off on the final drive.

Pretty dumb move to not blitz a guy who had literally been on the bench for a few games.

It's disgusting to even think about. How in the heck does this team beat FOUR playoff teams and crush Oakland & KC on the road, but lose to them at home?

Ugh. I thought I was getting over this.

13 plays from the shotgun later, and Jamarcus Russell had driven for a game winning touchdown.

I've had teeth pulled that were less painful this many weeks afterwards.

The faiders home game was the most painful loss of the entire season. One key stepping stone to making the playoffs and the Broncos fell apart to the worst run franchise in the NFL.

I didn't even watch the chefs game last Sunday, thank God I was skiing the whole day.

We became the Faders when we lost to the Faiders. What a moment in Colorado history.
