Is Jemarcus Russell’s Football Career Over?    After wasting 3 years and 31 million dollars, Raiders owner Al Davis  cut his losses and released the Former LSU star.   I was on the 50- yard line at the Superdome for Russell’s final collegiate game, a Sugarbowl vistory over a badly outmatched Notre Dame. He displayed tremendous athletic ability, throwing three touchdowns, and was named MVP of the game.

He made several questionable decisions, including forcing a couple of passes that should have been intercepted, and probably would have in the NFL.

Since then, it’s all been downhill.

‘Nearly four years after JaMarcus Russell(notes) became the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, his playing career may have completely bottomed out after “life coach” John Lucas asked Russell to leave Houston recently, two sources close to the quarterback told Yahoo! Sports.

Russell, 25, and Lucas had been working together since September in hopes of getting Russell into shape for a return to the NFL. The aforementioned sources say Russell, released by the Oakland Raiders last May, initially worked hard, but quickly lost motivation. Recently Lucas tired of trying to get Russell, the top pick in 2007, to respond to instruction and assistance’
