Darren McFadden showed the league what he could do in 2010. He amassed over 1,600 yards of total offense and scored 10 touchdowns.
At times his speed was too much for the opposing defense to handle, as he outran everyone on the field. Other times he was just too powerful to bring down and he delivered the punishment on the defense.
McFadden ran with a purpose in 2010 and the opposing defense took notice. McFadden would outrun linebackers and defensive linemen who tried tackling him, and he would run over the defensive backs who tried tackling him.
The McFadden of 2010 was a different running back than his first two seasons. Former superstar safety John Lynch called a game for the Raiders and pointed out the difference in McFadden's game.
"I used to love playing against McFadden because he used to run so high," Lynch said. "Now he is running behind his pads with force and determination."
The Raiders have a great weapon in McFadden and they should be able to get the ball in his hands a lot more often. Coach Jackson is a smart man and he now has plenty of weapons on offense which is why the Raiders should enjoy more success in 2011.
