Debating Darren McFadden's future in Oakland

01:10 AM ET 11.16 | No matter what, we always end up here with Darren McFadden. Playing the waiting game. Hoping he'll be healthy enough to play this week, or the week after, or even the next season. Will that trend ever end? Likely not. Making matters even worse this time around is that Run DMC was mired in the middle of a slump the likes of which we didn't expect to see from a potential MVP candidate. Though the burden of that blame falls on the slumping shoulders of Greg Knapp, the debate surrounding McFadden's future as a Raider is just beginning. After next season McFadden will be a free agent unless the Raiders negotiate a new deal prior or simply part ways before crossing that bridge. That means the most dynamic talent we've seen in a Silver and Black uniform in the last decade will be officially at the crossroads. Will Reggie McKenzie show McFadden the money, knowing his investment might not ever see a proper return?

Nobody can stay on the field this year. The playoffs are starting to look like they'll be the Backup Bowl.

I hate it when I send my wife to the store for ribeye and she comes home with strip steak. I hate it even more when the strip steak is marked "ribeye."

We don't go to WalMart around here. The whole staff is Cambodian. The last time I went there, I asked where the flashlight batteries were and they brought me over to the car batteries.

Yeah well that is a nationality with a serious problem that way. I mean one generation ago they systematically killed all the smart people in the country. Can you say damaged the gene pool a bit?

At at least one highly-ranked college around here, these young women are referred to as CLOGs - Cute Little Oriental Girls. They troll around campus looking for future tech-wizard millionaires.

Big difference in the various oriental races.

Can you imagine the situation we would be in if when W was in office they killed everyone smarter than him. He would still be in office, no one could count the votes

In the Air Force, we called them "Chow Hall Women".
