IMO When Mcfadden does come back .. Maybe The Raiders should still give Reece Alot more time playing. Nothing wrong with using 2 good players so they don't get banged up so much.
The thing about McFadden is he was a track star, not a physical sports athlete. He runs straight and only goes to the holes that are made for him. He's not a power back but he does have the speed. Bush was the power but not much speed. Need that happy medium.
Darren McFadden - RB - Raiders
Darren McFadden (ankle) and Mike Goodson (ankle) both remain in walking boots.
It throws cold water on the notion that McFadden is "expected back" for Week 11, but it certainly doesn't mean McFadden can't shed his boot between now and Wednesday's practice. It's just more likely he'll come down to a game-time decision than an assured return. Fantasy owners should be used to DMC's status being up in the air. For now, he shouldn't be expected to play Sunday until coach Dennis Allen guarantees he will do so
3.7 yards a carry is only slightly above what Mcfadden was getting, add in the fcat that baltimores run defense is near the worst in the league and I dont see the relevance of pointing out what he was able to do.
Darren ran for 5.3 a carry LY and 5.1 in 2010.
He is a effective back in the right scheme. His inability to adapt has to eliminate any talk of "superstardom" but if we let him go, he will lead the league in rushing for some team that :
1) builds around him like we did in 2011
2)puts resources into a superior O-line.
Dude...we're comparing Darren McFadden....Mr. Top 5 back, Mr. can take it to the house at any moment...the 4th pick in the draft....to Marcel Reece. A man without a position. That there is any comparison at all should alarm the hell out of anyone trying to support McFadden.
Lol, always ifs and buts, caveats and excuses with this guy.
Frankly, I'd prefer to go with Reece, who will put his shoulder down and get an extra yard or two then McFadden, who tends to run into the pile or burst out for 10.
A running game should be a consistent approach to gaining yardage. The "hit or miss" approach is absolutely nonsense.
Give me consistent yards over feast or famine every day of the week.
That is true Shredd. Unless your team lacks talent, like ours, then the scheme doesn't mean much ,after all.
Who is coming back this week?
