Unless Jamarcus Russell turns things around, by season's end, you'll be able to shoot a cannon off on Sundays at the Coliseum and not come close to hitting anybody.

Russell said he was surprised to hear fans booing the silver and black in their last home game against Denver.

"You know the fans?I wish the fans could be more supportive. We're already down in the dumps. You know, just have them come together with us. It was crazy for me. I never really been in that situation before, but we just got to put out a lot of those people who are fed up over the course of the year. Only thing we can do this week is make some plays and hopefully it will go the other way," said Russell.

"Right now, it's the whole part of our offense has been non productive and it's hard to hang our hat on anything now and we know where we want to go, but we're not there," said Ted Tollner, the Raiders' passing game coordinator.
