Baldinger: Russell, McFadden are Busts

Brian Baldinger did a chat for NFL.com on Tuesday, and certainly didn't hold back any punches. Sorry, Bain, he did not answer any questions about Sarah Palin, but he did take off the gloves when talking about the Raiders.

The quarterback can't play. He's a bust. Darren McFadden is a bust. He won't stay healthy in this league. He's had only one good game. They have drafted poorly. They are easily scouted. The defense plays schemes that don't make sense. They play the ends out wide, and play the safeties too deep. Al Davis always believes that you have a deep safety, but Atlanta exploited that with Michael Turner. And to just see how bad Russell is, you have to look at what Matt Ryan did in that game. Russell just doesn't know what he is doing.

Alright. That kind of covers it. Really, what more can you add here? Maybe it's too early to write off JaMarcus Russell and Darren McFadden, but he's the expert, right?

That is a lot more refreshing that reading the regurgitation of, "Just give him, time" and other cliches that people throw out there.

Kudos to Baldy for calling it like it is with no sugar on top.
