hope you guys are happy. i'm not. i would have traded mcfadden even if we found a new (OC)-coach that opened lanes for him. watch, he will get tackled easy at the trench. and, he will injure his ankle again. but? squeeze what you can out of him!

Nope. They need to sign him for another two year at least.

Truthfully, i hope we develop Pryor as a drop back passer. Any kind of wildcat/running the QB shenanigans i really hate. Its so cheesy and just gets guys hurt. Packaging your Qb to do 1 specific thing stunts his development too, and then all you are left with is a big, tall running back instead of a mobile qb.

McFadden has long been my favorite player but is just remarkably injury prone. It's a shame really. Can you imagine what he would be like healthy even most of the time? In the right scheme?

i'm done with mcfadden! and i gotta say, it's only fair that he finishes his contract this one more year but if it was my choice? listen, seymour has the right to finish his contract as well. he's been injured and has played injured for the most part. think he's gonna be here one more season? mcfadden has the skills to break loose and make for a big run "when" there is a "big" gap. but i felt that not only this last season but throughout the years here, how many is it, 5?, he has to have someone open holes for him cause he can't find an opening himself.AND? when he gets hit he goes down easy. PLUS? his constant injury! sure, he can run when he breaks open, or when the (O_line) opens a gap for him cause he's fast. but how often does that happen? specially with a new team offense. to be honest? he's better off with another team for his sake. if i was him, i'd say trade me. you're gonna trade me after next season anyways! we need a bo jackson type runner,(hard to find). but mcfadden isn't going to cut it and will probably be a waste of a season here. and don't get me all wrong, i really hope he does great his last season here. and then what? give him another three year contract?

i always felt mcfadden did better running to the sides. mckenzie feels mcfadden is a better straight up runner. but if we do that, his season is gonna look exactly like 2012 season. he's gonna hit a wall!(lol), and mcfadden probably injures more running to the sides?

Mcfaddens best years are behind him. He has had way too many injuries and he is unstable and inconsistent, The Raiders cannot count on him unless they let him run like he did in 2011 and even so, hes lost a step or two, Time to trade.

I would still like to bring in a cheap free agent running back. I don't think McFadden will last this season.

Should trade him, he still has game but only for part of a season. Injury seems to be the standard for him. He will blow up a few games, but not worth resigning.

The more I think about this, it probably means maybe he's going for skill players next year. I hear more talk about defense this year than anything
