I don't know what JaMarcus Russell is like off the field. He may have a good personality, I don't know. 
But we all know what he's like on the field. That's why JaMarcus deserves the title of Least Valuable Player .
Why is JaMarcus deserving of that title? 
Not only is he a terrible starting quarterback at this point, he shows no intensity. He shows no fire. I've never seen him really get mad on the field. I've never seen him show the competitiveness that he needs to show.
He hasn't bashed himself like he should. Instead, he's turned to his teammates.
He showed his youth and immaturity by publicly blaming his teammates for dropping balls and not giving him any help what so ever—partly true. Later that season, he publicly stated that he wouldn't take a pay cut to remain with the team.
You just don't publicly bash your teammates. That's how you lose support in the locker room. If you lose the locker room as a quarterback, you're done. That's it.
