Thumbs down To the NFL for the harsh fine it handed Titans owner Bud Adams for giving a single-digit salute - with both hands - to the Bills sideline during his team's 41-17 victory Sunday. Adams was fined $250,000 for his actions. That's as much as the Patriots were fined last year for Spygate (Patriots coach Bill Belichick received a separate $500,000 fine for that). "I got caught up in the excitement of a great day, but I do realize that those types of things shouldn't happen," Adams said.

The Raiders issued a statement two days after Russell was charged with possession of a controlled substance - codeine syrup - after being arrested at his home in Mobile, Ala.

Thumbs Up To the NFL owners and players, who interrupted their stalemate over how to slice up their $9 billion-a-year revenue pie this week long enough to do something good for former players stricken with ALS. They agreed to expand benefits provided under the "88 Plan" to include reimbursement of expenses to qualifying players who are suffering from this horrible disease. The "88 Plan," named after Hall of Fame tight end John Mackey, was developed in 2006 to provide coverage to former players diagnosed with dementia.

Recent history: The Eagles defeated the Raiders, 23-20, at the Linc on Sept. 25, 2005. The series is tied, 5-5. OFFENSE Eagles 368.8 yards per game (8th) Raiders 191.6 yards per game (32nd) Quarterback Eagles Donovan McNabb's still-healing rib wasn't a problem for him last week as he threw for three touchdowns and had just five incompletions in 21 attempts against the Bucs. He is one of the best in the league at spreading the ball around and keeping opposing defenses off-balance.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game: 1. The assault on JaMarcus: Defensive coordinator Sean McDermott blitzed Bucs quarterback Josh Johnson on 60 percent of the Eagles' defensive snaps (45 of 75) last week. That percentage might be even higher this week against Russell, who was sacked six times and lost three fumbles last week against the Giants. 2. Turnover time: The Eagles are second in the league in takeaways with 12, and should be able to add to that total against a Raiders team that has the third most giveaways (12)

The Oakland Raiders expect receiver Javon Walker to be ready for training camp when he recovers from injuries suffered in a robbery in Las Vegas last weekend. Raiders coach Lane Kiffin finally spoke to Walker by phone yesterday morning, more than 2 days after Walker was discovered unconscious and beaten on a back street near the Las Vegas Strip following a night of partying. Walker was released from a hospital after treatment for a concussion and facial injuries. "The info that I have is he's going to be fine," Kiffin said.

Quarterback Jeff Garcia, 39, is returning to the Bay Area after agreeing to a deal with the Oakland Raiders. Raiders senior executive John Herrera told the Associated Press Garcia will join the club's offseason workout program alongside starter JaMarcus Russell. Garcia, who played for the Eagles in 2006, was Tampa Bay's starter the past 2 years but wasn't re-signed. Noteworthy Receiver Plaxico Burress can keep a $1 million signing bonus he received from the New York Giants, but running back Larry Johnson's future in Kansas City is uncertain because the Chiefs aren't obligated to pay the portion of his contract that is guaranteed over the next two seasons.

IN 2007, THE RAIDERS used the top pick in the NFL draft to select quarterback JaMarcus Russell out of LSU. They ended up signing him to a 6-year deal with more than $31 million guaranteed. Fast-forward to May of last year when an out-of-shape Russell, who had ballooned to 300 pounds, was released by the Raiders. Five months later, the free agent began working with life coach John Lucas - yes, the same guy who once coached the Sixers - to try to get back into NFL shape. Now, Russell has reportedly messed that up, too. Yahoo!

WHEN HE WAS coaching at FCS East Tennessee State, Marcus Satterfield saw Marcus Smith play at Hardaway High School in Columbus, Ga. Only he didn't watch the guy the Eagles just took with their No. 1 draft pick play defensive end or outside linebacker. At that time, the 6-3, 250-pounder was still a quarterback. And a pretty good one. "It's ironic, because you could recruit him, but you knew he was going to be a BCS-type kid," recalled Satterfield, who's now in his second year as Temple's offensive coordinator.

IT TURNED OUT there were no franchise quarterbacks to be found in the 2007 NFL draft, but that didn't stop the Oakland Raiders from selecting JaMarcus Russell first overall, or the Browns from taking Brady Quinn 22nd. A franchise QB is the holy grail, the one thing everybody agrees a team needs to win the Super Bowl. That hasn't always been the case - Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson won Super Bowls for Baltimore and Tampa Bay a decade or so ago. But since then, it's been the guys with pedigrees on the podium, Pro Bowl performers who tended to have been drafted in the first round, with the exception of Tom Brady.

THE OAKLAND Raiders are changing directions at quarterback once again. The Raiders acquired Seattle backup Matt Flynn on Monday for draft picks, signaling an end to Carson Palmer's brief tenure as starter in Oakland. Fox Sports reported Palmer was expected to be dealt to Arizona. The Raiders paid a hefty price when they acquired Palmer from Cincinnati midway through the 2011 season, trading a 2012 first-round draft pick and 2013 second-rounder for the former Pro Bowler. Oakland will send a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a conditional pick in 2015 to Seattle for Flynn.

NFL teams were almost as busy dealing veterans as they were making picks Saturday. Jason Campbell, LenDale White, Leon Washington, Kirk Morrison, and Bryant McFadden all changed teams on the final day of the draft. And Alan Faneca was cut. With ex-Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb now in Washington, Campbell became expendable and was sent to Oakland for a fourth-round pick in 2012. "Working with Jason, we were trying to find him a proper home where he had a chance to compete for the starting job," Redskins general manager Bruce Allen said.
