San Francisco Chronicle - With one laser after another, JaMarcus Russell laid aside his accuracy woes with the best red-zone drills of his offseason. He threw touchdown passes on four consecutive plays and got high-fives all around in workouts in Alameda.
"You might retard a young guy by trying to be too cautious so let's rip it right now as you learn how to do this," Raiders coach Tom Cable said. "It's good to see him turn it loose and find out who can make those plays."
"We can run the ball all day," Russell said. "Once you get inside the 20, we're going to take shots at the end zone. That's what we were lacking. We'd get down there sometimes and try to run the ball all three downs and had to kick a field goal.
"If you don't take a chance at the end zone, how are you going to get there?"

Yeah, I read yesterday he is finally shaking off the cobwebs from the off-season. Can you believe it takes weeks or even months to regain form from last season? I guess the associated press didn't with all those Russel hating articles.
