    I feel bad for him. The guy has all the talent in the world, and he gets drafted by a team that almost certainly will waste that talent.

    6 years, 60 million. I do not feel bad for him at all. Heck I would play for 0-200 team if they gave me a million per year.

    No rookie deserves a deal like that. But on the other hand, that "deal" can be torn up at any time if he underperforms.

    they have a lot of money tied up in two players. They better do better this year so that they don't have to shell out that kind of money 3 years in a row.


    At least they know that they can do better than the chiefs...anyone can...zing!!

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not recommending him to the Make A Wish foundation, but as a hugely talented rookie, who I'm sure, has expectations of playoff runs and Super Bowls, finding out that Al Davis is going to be your boss can't be the best feeling in the world. The Raiders have shown little aptitude for the game of football in recent years.

    The best thing that can happen for the Raiders is the day Al Davis "retires". No ill will toward the man, he was great in his day - but that day is long gone.

    IMO, he's one of the worst, if not the worst owner in the league.

    Re: McFadden agrees to six-year, $60 million deal with Raiders

    I have a feeling he is going to be a huge bust in the NFL. That feeling was reinforced by the fact that he plays for the Raiders. Good for him though on the massive contract.

    Just like polyester disco suits and platform shoes.

    I still get this feeling that when he's dead in his grave he'll still have some way of controlling the Raiders.

    Re: McFadden agrees to six-year, $60 million deal with Raiders

    I think McFadden will be the same type of player as Reggie Bush. Bush has been pretty much a bust so far and I think that McFadden will too.

    Re: McFadden agrees to six-year, $60 million deal with Raiders

    as a raiders fan i hope he succeeds but i'm very thankful for them getting a deal done .... only took russell till week 2 to get something done last year ... also how can you rag on the raiders when every team has had bad years .... atleast theyve started fresh with a young coach and built a foundation with a new qb and a new rb .... not saying they're gonna be winning super bowls anytime soon but atleast theyll be winning more than 4 games a year IMO

    Re: McFadden agrees to six-year, $60 million deal with Raiders

    It might be the offense that Arkansas runs that makes me think he's not going to be as good as advertised. He played as basically the QB in some of their formations. I don't know how that's going to translate to the NFL. Then again, RB is probably the easiest transition to make from the college to pro game, so who knows?

    I'll be shocked if he's not better than Reggie Bush. Felix Jones is more like Bush than McFadden is. McFadden can actually run between the tackles.

    The Raiders have a great history of draft picks working out well :)

    Wouldn't it be amusing though? Al has some crazy legal document drawn up that must be executed, even after his death - that runs on for a few years?

    I wouldn't put it past him.
