04:52 PM ET 10.22 | Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is just as explosive and fast as he ever was. That's what Raiders head coach Dennis Allen believes at any rate. McFadden has 324 yards and two touchdowns on 103 rushing attempts this season. He is averaging just 3.1 yards per carry, down from 5.4 last season. With the Raiders struggling, expect more scrutiny of McFadden.

Prove it. Give the man a blocking scheme he can work with.

No need... We know it's more to it than McFadden.

Any NFL level running back can look good when you open holes for him to run through. Look at Chris Johnson at Buffalo yesterday compared to the earlier games. I can't think of any running backs I've seen who could break off big runs if the O line can't get them through the first level.

There's too much talent there for the numbers not to improve.

They need to dump their quarterback and get Pryor in there!!!
