5. In my effort to figure out why Off-The-Marcus Russell is the worst NFL quarterback in history, I discovered that he is part of a pattern of underachieving first-round draft picks from LSU.

He goes on to mention LSU first-rounders in the past decade, and I don't think he was really fair. Landry is a great player, and Addai was a great player even though he's worn down now. I think Dorsey will show improvement this year.

Also in the article he has some great commentary on Deion "Master D" Sanders.

Marcus Spears has started every year for the Cowboys and he labeled him a bust.:scratch:

Dont look at first rounders and look at overall LSU turnout in NFL...


CB Randall Gay - Saints
FS Ryan Clark - Steelers
SS - Laron Landry - Redskins
CB - Corey Webster - Giants
WR- Devery Henderson - Saints
MLB - Bradie James - Cowboys


All starters on their teams and are doing well.....How many other colleges have 1st round bust......answer is just as much if not more than LSU. Article is dumb.

EX see Jerome Mcdougle of Miami hurricanes....every college has bust

I haven't followed his career to closely, but when I see the Cowboys play, I almost never hear his name called.

LSU has never been a QB "maker", has it? For whatever reasons.

Fact is Jamarcus Russell should have never went #1 or 1st round for that matter. Only a moron like Al Davis would make the selection. All Al Davis does is draft by individual ability. Just because a guy can throw the ball 60 yards sitting down doesn't mean he can quarterback. Just because Heyward-Bey had the fastest time doesn't mean he can catch. That's why the Raiders will never improve, you have to get players that fit your system.

There's a difference between being a bust and being nothing special. 5 technique is not a statistical glamorous position to play.

Ryan Leaf is a bust. Chad Pennington is nothing special.

Jamarcus can't be defended by the most die hard LSU fans.

That fat ******* always writes negatively about Louisiana. He wrote something to the effect that Bush was going to wallow in obscurity when we drafted him and the team was going to move to San Antonio in a few years. He also pounced on the Hornets during the OKC debacle. He's just an overexposed hack.

I am a die hard Tiger fan and Jamarcuss is a bust plain and simple....however calling LSU players fat and lazy and bust prone is ridiculous when looking at the number of LSU players in the league and their longevity.

Isn't he a DE in a 3-4? When do you ever hear their names called?

He is a bust. Parcells labeled him a bust in the 3-4 first and was actually benching him quite a bit. Spears claimed he was going to get a resurgence with Wade Phillips because Wade Phillips would allow more gap penetration for his 3-4 ends then Parcells did.....and he's still a bust.
