McFadden was the runner-up to Tim Tebow for the ’07 Heisman Trophy
Darren McFadden has gained 557 yards in less than 5 games, averaging 5.5 yards per carry and scoring 4 TD’s running and 2 TD’s receiving. In those games that he started, the team is 2-3. He is playing with a purpose and trying to make sure that he and “JaFumble” are never in the same breath again (the bust word)?
Is he a candidate for league MVP though?
His value is equal to a Reggie Bush or a Jamaal Charles, . All 3 are so dynamic that defenses have to game plan for them and the team differently. When not in the lineup, their teams become more predictable and gives the defense a better opportunity to pressure the QB.
He is the team MVP; if “DMC” plays against the 9ers, they win that game. He stays healthy, and the Raiders will be .500 this year and fighting for the AFC West.
If that happens, he has to be a candidate for MVP, right?
