OAKLAND, Calif. - Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Darrell Russell can think analytically and express his thoughts in complete sentences. This is not something most people point out about themselves. But strange as it sounds, Russell said his intelligence is part of the reason he is labeled a guy who occasionally takes plays off. "I graduated college [Southern California] in 3.5 years," Russell said. "And I can complete a thought. So that tells you right there that nobody wants to talk to me, because I'm just killing stereotypes.

The knock on Darrell Russell is that he tends to relax occasionally, exhibiting a glaring lack of effort.The rest of the time he is on the field, though, Russell is usually knocking one or more offensive linemen backward in his quest to inflict damage on a ball carrier or a quarterback. At 6 foot 5, 315 pounds, with enough agility to dunk a basketball and enough strength to bench-press 415 pounds, Russell often has his way.Since Russell, Southern Cal's peerless defensive tackle, figures to be the first player picked when the New York Jets open the NFL draft on Saturday, it seems the league's talent evaluators are convinced enough of his performance and potential to look past lazy moments.

The judge scans the computer monitor next to his chair, then looks down at the defendant."Your driving record goes on like 'War and Peace,' " he says. He listens to a long list of excuses from the 40-year-old man, who had failed to show up for a previous hearing on a speeding charge. The judge stops him."I don't buy your stories," he says. "Sixty days suspended and a $500 fine. Just imagine me in the back seat of your car -- another ticket and you go to jail."So it goes in the sparsely decorated Essex District courtroom of Judge G. Darrell Russell Jr. -- an unending stream of sad and oft-told tales heard in a chamber he calls the "temple of democracy."

For Denver's Brian Griese, it was a separated shoulder and 10 stitches on the chin. For Seattle's Jon Kitna and Brock Huard, it was matching concussions. And for New Orleans' Jeff Blake, it was a broken foot and an early season exit. When quarterbacks play against the Oakland Raiders, they usually leave with painful reminders. The knockout kings of the NFL, the Raiders have put eight quarterbacks out of games this season. The Ravens players really don't want to talk about it. The coaches would prefer not to address it. But when the Ravens' offensive linemen had their meeting yesterday, assistant coach Jim Colletto made them aware of Oakland's infamous hit list.
