Peterson has watched Russell’s tenure in Oakland devolve into the Theater of the Absurd. In early March, as homage to Tiger Woods’ reported stint in sex rehab, Peterson made a joking reference at the end of a column that Russell had entered a clinic for treatment of “lethargy addiction.”
Within hours, a local TV station reported Russell’s alleged affliction as fact, and soon the Internet was awash with stories about the quarterback’s malady. Peterson had picked the word lethargy after turning to dictionary.com in an effort to ensure he selected just the right term. How did “lethargy” speak to him about Russell?
Just caught some of ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” focusing on why JaMarcus Russell has failed… it’s kinda awesome. Former Raider teammates talking about how Russell sleeps through meetings while Peyton Manning takes notes constantly… and Russell can’t get anything done without nannies making sure he gets on the bus on time. Awesome.
