I know a lot in Raider Nation, were disappointed by DMC. I wasn't one of those disciples. I was ecstatic when Al drafted this kid, he has everything, the total package skill set; Power, speed, one of the best stiff arms who will ever see (Seriously, amazing strength}. Once this guy hits a seam, it's over, take 6 to the bank. I was proud and enthusiastic that Hue co-signed with Darren on what plays would make him successful. The braintrust put schemes into action and it shows.
WHY DMC HASN'T GOTTEN HIS SHINE!
2010 stats; Games played 13
Total yards; 1664
Averaging 5.2 yards per carry, and averaging 10.78 yards per catch. This man is not a household name, Fox, NBC, CBS, ESPN, did not give this man any shine whatsoever. 2010 was his breakout year, I think he's going to be head to head with CJ and AP, in a year or two, as who's the best Running Back in Football. He's a special player, not being from Oakland, I haven't had a chance to see him shine in person. He's spectacular and he's still only 23. Physical Specimens don't come around too often. I've seen this guy and his workout routine, if he's got 2% body fat, I'd be really surprised. Legs like a Treetrunk, and speed that will make your head spin (ask Jacksonville, Denver, Seattle).
I think the kid's special and deserves some shine, he's a legitimate threat for MVP, Rushing leader for years to come. Anyone else want to give Darren his due props?
