Akili Smith Wasn't Available?

In a move that makes as much sense as a Bea Arthur sex tape, the Oakland Raiders signed Jeff George today. Yes that Jeff George. You know, the one who hasn't thrown an NFL pass in five years.

Signing Jeff George would've been a good idea... around the time Y2K was a threat. Now Oakland has four quarterbacks on its roster, and arguably none of them belong on a NFL team. Aaron Brooks is maddeningly inconsistent, Andrew Walter is unproven, Marques Tuiasosopo is terrible and Jeff George HASN'T THROWN A PASS IN THE NFL IN FIVE YEARS.

It's tough to root for this team, especially when they go and make strange/idiotic moves like this one. I miss the good ol' days when Raiders would get drunk behind the wheel and go AWOL in Tijuana. At least those teams had good players that won games. If Jeff actually plays this year, don't expect Oakland to improve on last season's 4-12 record.
