It seems they either bust him through the line, free into the secondary, where he runs through or away from people with his speed, or he gets nothing, like last night.
He reminds me of Hershall Walker, but not quite as fast. I'd prefer a guy who can move laterally and make a few moves.
So... I never really watch college football... but being on this board and all you guys talking about McFadden... I found myself looking for the game yesterday.
I didnt see much but I just assumed that it was just that.. a bad game by whole team, like you said.... an abberation for McFadden.
Its funny.... so much talk.... I had to check it out for myself... I will look for his next game.
So if not him? who? I am curious.... What about Felix Jones - whats his scoop?
Imagine that.... Julius Jones replaced by Felix Jones LOL
