Darren McFadden Vs. Michael Bush


<a class='sbn-auto-link' href='http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/34385/Darren_McFadden'>Darren McFadden</a> #20 of the <a class='sbn-auto-link' href='http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/OAK'>Oakland Raiders</a> carries the ball as <a class='sbn-auto-link' href='http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/1486/Jon_McGraw'>Jon McGraw</a> #47 of the <a class='sbn-auto-link' href='http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/KAN'>Kansas City Chiefs</a> defends during the first half fo the game on September 14, 2008 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

McFadden was drafted with the fourth overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. The Raiders signed McFadden to a six-year, $60.1 million contract which included $26 million in guarantees. Contract negotiation was rapid due to Raider fears of a second consecutive contract holdout as was the case with JaMarcus Russell in 2007.

Rookie year-McFadden scored his first professional touchdown against the Chiefs on September 14, 2008, his second NFL game, in which he gained 164 yards on 21 carries. McFadden also suffered an injury to his big toe in this game, which limited him for the next 14 games, including three missed games. He ended the season with 499 yards on 113 attempts, with four touchdowns. He also made 29 receptions for 285 yards.

Last year he was injured and played 3rd string in alot of games. He only lost two fumbles last year though and this is suppose to be his breakout year.

He is one of the only Home Run Hitters we have.

Michael Bush  was drafted in the 4th round of the 2007 NFL draft. With his broken leg still hobbling him he was injured for his whole rookie season.Bush finally returned to the football field in 2008. He was the Raiders' third string halfback but saw some action because of injuries to Darren McFadden and Justin Fargas. He also filled in as a blocking fullback. In 08 Bush rushed for 177 yards on 27 carries and 2 touchdowns to help Oakland deny Tampa a spot in the playoffs.

He's proven he can start in this league.

Last year was bad year for both running backs but you can't blame them with our passing game.

Anyway Cable said there will not be any smash and dash next year we will have 1 everydown back.

There's a rumor saying Bush takes him self out of the game. I really hope that's not true. Remember the Replacements "Winners always want the ball... when the game is on the line".
