New nickname for JaMarcus

Our pal Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports mentions (with link back to our story, thank you very little) that Jets rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez is already known as “Sanchize.”

And Silver says that, given Sanchez’s new nickname, Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell wanted one of his own.

And so, says Silver, Russell’s teammates came up with this:  “OffDaMarcus.”

Silver, of course, is kidding.  (We think.)  And Raiders exec John Herrera possibly will soon be accusing Silver of coming up with the name while Silver was smoking pot with Tim Kawakami.

  1. Good to see Michael Silver is stealing from Jason Whitlock. Whitlock coined that nickname in a KC Star column 2 weeks ago.
    And yes, it is hilarious.

  2. This is truly ridiculous if this is the level of journalism that you have stooped to.
    And accusing a Raider executive of smoking pot with a lowlife maggot lawsuit of a sub human.
    I am going back to Jerry McDonald’s blog.
    This level of sucking by you is unacceptable!

    That implies that there is a “level of sucking” that you do find acceptable.

  4. Awwwww. Silver&Black…don’t go!!![eye roll]
    Your fury should be directed towards your craptacular team–and the freakishly bad OffDaMarcus QB.
    He sucks. Bad. As in: REAL BAD. Like, Ryan Leaf bad.

  5. Silver knows howw to stay classy doesn’t he, lol. Some of the “journalists” out there need to be hit by buses or trains.

  6. Silver&Black666 demonstrates yet again that Raiders fans struggle with reading comprehension.
    Florio was citing an incident in which a Raiders executive accused a journalist of smoking pot with Mike Silver. He never alleged that a Raiders executive smoked pot.

  9. Boy, those Raiders…the only team on the planet where you can put 9 guys in the box, keep only 2 deep and not get burned. That is just how bad JaBustus sucks – so far he has 32 passing yards and the running game has 5 yards against the worst run defense in Houston.
    I don’t know how it could possibly get more pathetic…RaiderNation – please stop buying tickets and start boycotting the games. That is the only way to get AD to finally realize he needs help.
