Demote this

Apparently Raiders' backup QB Marques Tuiasosopo is once again a backup. And the University of Washington alum (bless his heart) isn't happy about it.

"I'm really disappointed; I'm not happy about it at all,'' he told the San Francisco Chronicle. "We (he and coach Norv Turner) talked, but I'm not happy about it at all. I deserved to play. I've been around here long enough."

These fighting words are coming a week after starting QB Kerry Collins was demoted because Turner realized he isn't very good. But Collins was also upset when he was demoted, saying: "There is a reason why I think I should be able, or deserve, to play."

So in two weeks, two mediocre-to-bad quarterbacks have publicly whined about getting benched.

And in two weeks, Turner has juggled the decision much like the clown he is.

Somewhat-relevant aside: I went to dinner with Norv last night and he spent 15 minutes deciding between the Kung Pao chicken or the Hunan beef. (He went with the combo chow mein instead).

What this boils down to is that both Collins and Tuiasosopo should just shut up. (Again, Tui, nothing personal buddy. Still love ya. Go Dawgs).

Both are pretty lousy quarterbacks playing for a pretty lousy coach in a pretty lousy franchise owned by a terrible, terrible person (Darth Vader).

These quarterbacks are getting paid to throw incompletions to fellow Raiders and completions to the opponent. Turner should tell these bozos to close their mouths and should man-up already and put Randy Moss behind center.

In other news: The MLS San Jose Earthquakes have been moved to Houston just in time to play the Arizona Cardinals.
