"Charlie (Frye) was playing really well before he got knocked out," Cable told the Tribune, referring to Frye's performance that netted him a 38.4 quarterback rating. " If he’s ready to go he’ll play. If not, we’ll go with JaMarcus but it’s too early to tell.”
Russell did manage the game-winning touchdown. But Coach Cable perhaps can't get beyond the way Russell still routinely missed receivers, or how he fumbled on his first possession.
Maybe Russell should only go in when it's fourth-and-ten.
