Default Is it too early to call Darrin McFadden a bust yet?

I'd say it's too early as long as you still call him a Raider.

Hmm, well I haven't moved him from my FF team yet. Hopefully not!

Just a couple examples why I say no: Cedric Benson, Ricky Williams. And McFadden hasn't even been in trouble with the law yet. But we thought both these guys were long gone, and look at 'em now.

The raiders never give him the ball, so i'd say not yet plus they are a horrible team when it comes to everything surrounding talent.

Definitely not yet. When Al Davis, well you know, isn't here anymore, the Raiders will start to rise. Not to mention, they have no QB. Without a passing threat, it doesn't matter who your running back is. Unless you have Barry.

Also Thomas Jones too. When he was in Arizona, people already tagged him with the "bust" label...

...so, too early to officially call McFadden a bust, but he better pick it up soon and I mean real soon...

Mcfadden has been injury prone though. I did notice that.

With a horrible passing game as they have, no team is afraid on their passing game so therefore load the box and focus on the run. All teams know JR isn't going to beat them.

So a bust no, just playing on a very crappy team.

It's not like teams were afraid of Tavaris Jackson or Gus Frerotte last year. And injuries are part of being good, just like the Reggie Bush arguement on these boards a few months ago. If you can't stay healthy, then it doesn't matter how much talent you have.

Rams have no passing game and steven jackson is a wrecking ball top 5 in rushing yards in the nfl and he is the only threat the rams have

And the Titans are a complete mess in Tennessee, yet Chris Johnson is like second in the league in rushing.
