03:29 PM ET 09.05 | Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden has always had the talent, but he has failed to put it all together or stay completely healthy since joining the NFL. This year, it looks like we have no reason to believe that will be any different. McFadden will be running behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league with no real quarterback threat, so teams can stack the box and put him on his backside over and over again throughout the game. However, McFadden does appear to have some added motivation this season and he is hoping to put together a great season for the organization.

That's called earning one's pay. It's nothing new and is a regular feature in the real world if you want food in your belly and a roof over your head.

What up peoples!!!!!!

How bout my Bronco's!!!!!!!

Not only the smoke, but at the end when Michelle is doing her in interview she mentions the last QB to throw 7 TD's and Peyton, on the heels of a game, could have given her Kapp's SSN.

God it was good to get out of that first quarter.

I have PM and WW on my fantasy team.... I don't even need to play the rest of my team this weekend.

Congrats on the win and the fantasy team haha I got killed by Peyton in one league tonight. Ravens special teams were nasty bad.... everything changed right after Jones got laid out by his own guy, but a big win for Denver.

Your positive vibes certainly were felt and appreciated by Manning, at least in the last three quarters. Flacco looks to be the new Romo: over paid, overwhelmed, and over his head.

Interesting thought Darren. Where I come from, we call it "working" and "earning your paycheck".

September 6, 2013  02:50 PM ET

He's in a contract year.

Good RB but bad drafting of supporting players.
