Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is having another injury filled season and every analyst is starting to bring out the bust label again. It started over the 2010 offseason when McFadden had two lackluster seasons in Oakland and McFadden showed them in 2010 he deserves the title of featured back. Then 2011 came in to smack him down again and 2012 has the bust haters coming back in for a meal. However it is too soon to label McFadden a bust and the proof is in his age. McFadden is only 25 years old at this point in his career. 25 in running back years is when most running backs begin to reach the halfway point in their careers and McFadden may be able shake off his injury issues in upcoming seasons.… Read more

  • he is very injury prone @ the hardest hit position in the NFL. This mook is a bust don't understand how you could argue any other way.
  • Dmac is the Bomb......The OFFENSIVE LINE for
    Oakland is a Joke.....Put Dmac behind any great
    line and he will get you 2,000 yards.....

    If the Raiders draft a Offensive Tackle with their first round Pick and trade for a Left Guard to replace Cooper who should of been replaced with the rookie from Utah......

    Oakland is building a Offensive Line for the Future.
    The have a great young Left Tackle, right guard through trade with Miami, and a possible future all
    Pro Center with the kid from Penn State.

    Oakland can't Throw the Ball. They can't run the Ball. Shocker they can't score with the Football.
    They played the worst team in Football in Kansas city.
    That means KC SUCKS...Well, OAKLAND Put up 15 points.
    5 Field Goals....Hey, DMAC can't block and run at the
    same time.......Do the Math.

    Oakland needs a Offensive Tackle and everything changes for the Raiders....The Building Blocks are
    there but Remember Rome wasn't built in a day.
    Patience......Dmac's problem is he goes 100 percent
    every play.....When you line can't block in the NFL
    you usually can't run, pass, block, throw touchdowns,
    and most important = Score Touchdowns..

    Dmac isn't going anywhere because the OAKLAND RAIDERS
    trade Dmac.......They will never be forgiven..

    Peace out!
