For those that asked about college accuracy, and claim you didn't think he was good in college;

 

50.7 Comp % , 1053 Yards, 9 Touchdowns, 4 Interceptions.

60.5 Comp %, 2443 Yards, 15 Touchdowns, 9 Interceptions.

67.8 Comp %, 3129 Yards, 28 Touchdowns, 8 Interceptions.

 

He was showing dramatic improvement when football mattered to him. 

 

Cam was 66% Comp, 2800 yards, 30 TD, 7 INT. So very similar passing numbers, but defenses also had to respect his ability to rush. 

 

As a third year player, compared to third year RG3, Russel had better passing stats.

 

He was good in college, he just lost focus and stopped caring as a pro.

He was handed $32 million guaranteed and was sleeping on his mother's couch 8 years later.   To me, that is all you need to prove complete idiocy.

 

Russell's problem was never what is below his ears, it has always been what is between them.

Many formal nfl players are now broke. It didn't stop them from having successful careers.

A good QB is supposed to have half a brain. Blowing that much $ would scare me, as a GM, as much as all his on-field problems.

I don't think the guy is denying that he had issues. I think he's asking for (and proving why he deserves) a second chance.

Kudos to him. Hopefully the guy can keep it together and restore his career.

Yeah I agree everyone deserves a 2nd chance.

So, as of 3 months ago he was considerably overweight but now we feel he has conquered his laziness?

We still don't know if he is broke or not.

 

I would be really curious to hear where the money went if he is broke.
