Breaking News: Matt Flynn traded to Oakland!! Working on finalizing Palmer to Arizona trade!!
Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie told reporters Thursday that he is committed to Darren McFadden as Oakland's starting tailback for 2013.
Like coach Dennis Allen, McKenzie is attributing McFadden's 2012 struggles to simply being a poor system fit for outgoing OC Greg Knapp's zone-blocking scheme. "He's not a lateral mover," McKenzie said of McFadden's running style. The Raiders are expected to turn back to a power-blocking, gap-based running system in 2013. McFadden is owed a pricey $5.856 million base salary. Jan 17 - 5:17 PM ET

Teammates expect McFadden back this week-
Darren McFadden's (ankle) teammates reportedly expect him to return this week.
McFadden hasn't practiced since he sustained a high-ankle sprain in Week 9. The Raiders haven't provided many details on his status, but his teammates apparently have seen good progress. If DMC can get back on the field by Wednesday, it's reasonable to think he could see action in Sunday's game against the Browns. Owners that have been riding Marcel Reece for the last three weeks need to have backup plans on tap.

I can’t go and have to give up my tickets. S & BP members preferred. Section 308 row 7. I have 4 seats, I will sell one, 2 or all 4. Face value is $36 each I will sell them for that plus the $2 emailing fee each, total $38 each. These same seats would go for $55 each including TM fees if you had to buy them direct. These are south end zone, excellent seats for the $ IMO (I chose them and I’ve sat everywhere)
Hopefully I’m not ruffling feathers posting this, not even trying to profit at all
