does anyone have any reference material to compare some of his other thoughts on players and how they turned out??? without a comparison I cant really say his opinion holds any water...working for 11 NFL teams though really puts a question mark on where he goes in the draft...especially if he works for any of the 7 in front of us.

landry used to work for LSU, he knows all about russell. i'll listen to him over anyone else about LSU players. and he generally fluffs his opinion up a bit, so this is definitely something i'd worry about. plus....he's just not that good of a quarterback.

Do you guys form your own opinions or do you need others to give it to you? I know Kast said VY was a bust last year....predicted the huge slide based on the pre-draft mumbo jumbo. Pretty astute commentary. Keep up the good work. Russell has two L's in it btw

Wake me up when the water walker gets beyond 55% completion rate. There are old QBs in the NFL and Bold QBs in the NFL. But there are no old bold QBs in the NFL.

wth is that? Some Nostradamus quatrain? John Elway's first year he threw under 50% (259 attempts and 123 completions and 14 INT's to go with only 7TD passes). Stat-drivel gets so old....watch a few games.

John Elway's gonna be dead, and you're gonna say, "Oh, I've been listening to him for years, and I think he's fabulous."

Default Re: NFL scout talks about JaMarcus Russel

First, Landry has been saying critical stuff of JR for a while. And JR somehow finds a way to throw for over 3,100 yards this year with 28 TDs, completes 68 percent of his passes, leads the team to double digit wins for the second straight year and manages to engineer a number of game winning drives against solid competition the last two years.

Is the guy perfect? No. But his development the last two years has been significant, and his physical ability at the position is just about unmatched. Anyone saying this guy ain't a good QB hasn't watched him much. I've watched nearly every LSU game of his since 2004, so I've followed his development and know how far he's come and how good he is. When he first began, he was easily rattled, stared down his receiver and forced bad passes. Now, for the most part, he's as cool in the pocket as can be, spreads the ball around (three receivers each caught more than 50 passes this year), runs when he needs to and throws it away when nothing else is there. He's learned to take what is open and strike big downfield when the opportunity arises. He still needs to develop more, but he's a special talent worthy of a top pick.

Actually concerned raised by Landry is valid and it has been there the last few years. I had heard this rumor last year as well. But he does have all the tools to succeed in NFL. I think he will be a great QB in the NFL for a long time.

i'm not a fan of his play on the field, AND when i hear those comments by chris landry, i really see that he's just not that great of a prospect. sometimes it takes more than just watching the game and saying "duhhhhh he throws the ball far" to determine if a player will be good or not. or the always stupid "duhhhh he just wins!"

There is a huge difference in those two corollaries. If you have played or coached in any competitive sport you should know that.

landry's take just reeks of racism.

the "heady white guy" panics in every big game, chokes and throws the ball into the hands of the "natural athletes" in the defensive backfield.

the "raw" black QB throws for more than twice the yardage, throws for touchdowns and leads his team to victory over the "heady white guy" and yet he is considered "unpolished"

i wish jamarcus russell would tell chris landry what he could "polish"

I really don't like to pull the race card so fast, because I would rather give people the benefit of the doubt...

I don't know if this guy is a racist or not, but I just think there is a subconcious bias against black QB's in general...
