A little over a year ago, I wrote an article entitled, "Can Darren McFadden Be Another O.J. Simpson?" It was a couple of months before his breakout season, so most of Raider Nation thought I was crazy at the time.
In fact, at that time, much of Raider Nation was clamoring for Michael Bush to start—saying McFadden should be a third-down back or move to receiver.
But that was over a year ago and I forgive all those in Raider Nation that called me crazy back then.
With the way McFadden is playing now, I thought it would be a good time to revisit my initial question. There are simply too many similarities in both of these men's football stories.
Turn the page to see just how similar McFadden's journey is to that of Simpson.
Remember, this is football—not life.
