First off, before I do anything else, I want to apologize for my last blog entry. I was a little too excited, and I made myself look like a fool, and a jerk.
Okay, with that out of the way, let's get on to the entry.
Darren McFadden is closing in on 1,000 yards. Seriously. He is seven yards away from doing something he hasn't done since college, which was a couple years ago. For those of you who knew that this was going to happen, congrats. But after not even reaching 500 yards his first two years, I had pretty much given up on the first-round pick out of Arkansas. Now I'm considering getting him in the second round of my fantasy draft next year.
I found a lot of people (especially Raider fans) booing the signing of Jason Campbell. I didn't like it either. I didn't think Campbell was a good fit for the Raiders. But maybe having two decent QB's who get injured all the time and switch starting spots was just what the doctor ordered for McFadden (or maybe it was not getting injured, either way). And Oakland too for that matter. The Raiders are 3 games out of the wild-card. For fans of teams like the Patriots, Packers (me), Steelers, Giants, and Falcons, that might not be a big deal. But if the Raiders finish the season at .500, I'm sure Raider fans will be partying and getting drunk before you can say alcohol.
Whats that? I wrote too much about the Raiders? Anyways, back to McFadden. Some numbers for you. McFadden has 993 rushing yards as of right now. That is more than in his first two seasons combined. Also, McFadden's 7 total rushing touchdowns are more than in his first two years combined. Also, this is the first year in McFadden's NFL career that he has a receiving TD (he has 3). And get this. McFadden's 1400 yards from scrimmage are 4th in the league. 4th! And his 10 total TD's are 9th in the league. That has to be a good christmas present for the Raiders, McFadden, and McFadden's family.
UUUUUHHHHH! Cheese does not taste better boiled.......
