I like the article, but 1 thing I see diff is mcfaddens injury lastyear had nuttin 2 do wit anything u talked about. A 250 lb linebacker put all his weight on mcfadden as he was planting & turning. I knew he was hurt when I saw it & he surprised me when he got up & walked off the field. So I wasn't surprised when he never returned, it look pretty bad from the start. But I do agree with all that u said & honestly i've been saying it for a long time. Every player at skilled positions are mismatch nightmares. U can do alot wit them like life up in a2 back set wit a TE & come out the huddle wut reece & dmc wide out & the receivers in the backfield. That creates mismatches all over the field. Wut defense can u call 2 cover that? Raider Nation Baby!!!

Agreed. But I do also think McFadden's previous injuries do play a part. Al Miller has his work cut out for him to keep conditioned for and throughout the season. I like our back ups but we are better off when McFadden is healthy.
But to your point when hit or landed on just right, anyine can get injured regardless of the preparation.
