Jeff is working with the TEST West Football Academy in the San Diego area and is currently helping JaMarcus Russell on his comeback. Jeff was outstanding talking about JaMarcus, being a total realist.
-- five point seven game. NFL analyst Jeff Garcia he joins us now how are -- today Jeff. They are doing great it's got the work out and number -- go home and. Now jamarcus you you're training -- at the test west training academy in San -- -- correct. Correct we partnered my top -- at west sports academy and we partnered up with. A whole lot to export performance centered around here ranch Bernardo and -- that yes we're trying to market race here. How did your involvement with his comeback -- Jeff -- -- you guys were teammates briefly -- doubted your involvement with this. Begin. Really started with Martin's partner Brian Martin who started the chat. Sports academy -- football academy on the road in future in the again. Really involved in the professional sports business. Train players getting them ready for their pro com binder and I don't -- Nazi and programs that. And they'll -- as well and they started talking to market. Little over a year ago. And talking until about getting back and gain helped him to get back and -- him physically get him ready mentally area each. Sort things -- when I came into the picture. I think -- it's on the not so if you're the guy with much else to -- -- the -- all the opted to get there to make it. And then here's a guy like markets to really had a candid Q can we get in know how to fully appreciate your take advantage of it. What Hewitt in the game and I think that's. Where -- that now he's had a rude. Awake and so to speak about what it takes. In order to achieve success. At the level you can't and so on you expect on the plate you have to work it. And he's in a position right now where arms are there and financial. Concerns there are other concerns comes from a small town in Alabama -- know you went to a lot of family. Trowel and tribulation he locks and remembered over the past year he had to overcome. A lot from a personal standpoint. The war in a position to really helped him. Motivate him and surround a great team around him helped him. Understand what it takes. To achieve success that at the elite level and he had the mindset right now where he's willing to work or not up -- and almost. The most important thing here you have to want from what you want -- and there's only so much we can help you quit and we care not -- help you. Achieve what you want to see you opt out that desire that action to redeem yourself. Jeff feeds and easy to see hearing guess about the things he needs to work on things he needs to get better at what would you say are his primary assets. In terms of NFL quarterback. Awarded out that that -- that he had that experience. The NFL level he had -- glimpses of success. Out on the deal he had shown that he is capable. Now can -- be consistent on a weekly basis. I think with the proper mental preparation and also the proper physical condition you have to look back when outlook the year 2009. We had -- -- off between OT eight in many champs and then our actual range. Within that my left probably RO GA -- human. I had probably about shoot 65 to them. He came back to real five. So someone -- he's in court -- -- mentality appoint betraying the critical condition that. You need to. Take upon yourself. To prepare yourself obviously wasn't there when he would. In the mix what he needed to do its part the battle now. That's open net he can improve upon and we will help him -- I think you need to say you'll be with that still come back in better shape than ever there. Natural gift that he has to sort football our our president and the caption that's so much of life. People were all in all over -- coming out of ballot Hewlett because when he drops back and apple come out his hand the natural. Ability and natural relief and the character he throws the football -- Are unparalleled. -- -- its -- to beat 66. Stand up like he'd in which it like he'd there are people reckoned grow with the velocity with -- tightness to our -- The accuracy that you can bring the table. But the main thing like that before it's consistency and I think -- physical mental conditioning operation. You can be a better position cure that 27 year goal. The postal when he was 41 years old he's matured quite a bit and then you understood. Now what he needs to do hopefully it's not too late. Jeff Garcia joining us are not a 57 the game Jeff I may be an ABC there -- as far as quarterbacking goes but what GM the in their right mind would extended give this guy a chance to coming to camp after the way he flamed out in Oakland. Well I think you have to. Look at that you -- to me and we probably don't really I mean torturer. Under here what we -- out mentally physically it's our bodies -- -- And we're point 72829. Year old or not we're still growing not yet well. And so 19 your goal and -- able to carve out. Pretty successful career. Twelve year player -- and I felt level I think -- -- -- got a look at his background I don't think. -- net -- fairly ever -- a problem. Starter yet he had the incident whatever it -- Europe or Cody whatever what back. In Alabama. Sort of situation. I think he's also learn about sort of situation he would never and a problems outlook in the locker room out there are no coach you want that guy you would just someone who showed up and didn't really. Put forth the effort that you would expect at this level I think those means can grow with and a person especially when you understand each argue about something. And then you -- And hopefully he can understand that and get back to where I would believe that from the mechanics from the natural ability that he out of place game. From being able to understand being coached. Not being poured into a position where you have to be the starter right -- I you know ideal team to be honest. Time quarterback cubic it can continue to -- ordered air are numbered years each. Time out Byron Leftwich Byron Leftwich. It is not anything. Saturday JaMarcus Russell right now and and in his time and I would take it to market in that sort of situation and allow him to study. And learn from a band. And and get better and cap that sort of opportunity equal with Pinochet can be surrounded by. All the players the quality change -- helped you sixty on you -- with Oakland. It wasn't the best of situations and everybody out to be realistic and this that you still look at Oakland are still struggling. In a lot of ways -- never built up the optical line. -- -- -- -- Stamps point four vaccines for a number of years now it hurt their running game is hurt their passing game you have to deal for Clark Palmer back pocket. The way that -- not pocket. As of right now uncle -- and get expert that was something that you to a 21 year old 22 year old into the mix. Under that sort of honor just like Alex. That the cost that day. Learned in the first 56 years that hit career. And it's not an easy situation you have to have fool around in -- be successful but also believe your take on your -- for the quarterback. To really lead goes. Players and and get those players to ride the -- you aren't what ever thought they keep you personally and that's what. The quarterback -- doable without which market. I understand that it is like -- out to be -- leader he can't just jump on board the train expect re right he's got a shovel coal fired. Jeff Garcia -- this year 95 point seven game there's no erratic depth if you pull back the -- Mac there are a lot of raider fans who view this guy as someone who essentially. Took money from them because they'd feel like he did not play hard how remorseful or regretful as jamarcus. For the opportunity that he failed to take advantage -- Answered it extremely well more -- in a lot of weight you'll. Failure under there at -- -- -- in the drought right now people look at and that all of our bar. And and feel that you understand that. He walked up and -- come back recruit. And especially to the rate -- sir that you appreciate it. Some of the court -- got in the early on that he was there but all and not all game it's gonna turn on your specially when you're the the -- beat records out and -- that statement about the culture. With Oakland Raiders back in that time and not to get out David could -- the great owner great leader. In the National Football League that. Later time it's career there were a lot of check collectors come into that door Oakland guys that were willing to put pork Yasser. -- they needed to have in order -- seat on the deal. And not -- it's going out name but there are -- guys that created bad culture bad environment can now -- room you may not -- battle. In order fine. Wait succeed and win on the field and lucky and fortunate. Situation now it. Part of that. CNET and acting to market in a lot of ways not being a leader at that time of -- all work selling some of those. That -- great and it's time for everything and everybody. In that. Position especially on that he's based there. Of the day to turn things around expect more of yourself from every individual and out locker room. Jeff Garcia Jeff best of luck with the jamarcus reclamation project we appreciate your time have a great weekend. Art art picture techniques in yet.
