Darren McFadden: ‘I feel like I owe the Raiders a fantastic season’


It’s safe to say that so far in his career, Darren McFadden has been a bust. He had high expectations coming to the Raiders after a fantastic college career at Arkansas. Last year was pretty much rock bottom when he averaged on 3.3 yards per carry. He says it’s time to live up to the expectations:

“The organization has shown tremendous faith in me, and I’m very grateful for that,” McFadden said, via Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com. ‘I feel like it shows real faith in me and in this offense as a whole. They clearly have confidence in my ability and what I can do in a downhill running scheme. I’m so excited to be able to run in this type of offense again. I feel like I owe the Raiders a fantastic season.”

It’s always interesting when a player knows its make or break time for them. This happens to be a contract year for McFadden so the pressure will definitely be on him. I know Raiders fans (and fantasy owners) are hoping he busts out.
