The running game

There is no reason to shed a single solitary tear over the loss of running back Demarco Murray. Joseph Randle was right to say Murray left “a lot of meat on the bone in regards to his 1,845-yards season. Randle, behind that same line, averaged 6.7 yards to Murray’s 4.7 yards on 51 attempts to Murray’s 392.

But the funny thing is Randle won’t be the first in line to replace the production Murray had in 2014. There is a running back by the name of Darren McFadden the will get first crack at the load. McFadden is about as electric as they come when healthy and there’s a hole for him to run through.

He had no such luxury in his time with the Oakland Raiders, even in the good years he had there. And no, McFadden’s not made of glass, he just went to a bad team with a bad offensive line and backs usually get hurt in that situation. Behind offensive line, I like McFadden’s chances to stay healthy and I know you saw the burst he still has in the dress rehearsal.
