JaMarcus Russell to try out for Chicago Bears Friday

Jamarcus Russell

The football gods have shined their favor once again on the humble Green Bay Packers faithful with incredible news that the Chicago Bears have scheduled the workout of Quarterback JaMarcus Russell this Friday.

To all that is holy and sacred, I hope this train-wreck falls upon the Bears Nation, not because of bitter feelings but because of the competitive advantage.

Russell is the biggest bust outside of our own draft mistake with offensive lineman Tony Mandarich, but what makes this even more of a head-scratcher is the length of tape behind Russell to display his stout inability.

Unlike Packers problem-child, Johnny Jolly, Russell has not excelled under pressure in key moments, or even gotten the grasp of getting the ball to his receivers (below 55 percent passing accuracy in three seasons).

Now, what if there was another free-agent quarterback, that has led his team to the playoffs and been able to move the ball (struggled more like) rather than one with no leadership skills?

Tim Tebow maybe …

Both are horrendous options, but one exudes team-first attitude and the other lacks it, to say the least.

Either way, the moment Jay Cutler cannot get off the turf is the moment the Bears go back into hibernation.
