I've always maintained that Micahel Bush was the more talented player than Darren McFadden. He's huge, he's athletic, has great vision, bowls through tackles and is by no means slow in his own right. He also has very good ball security.
Meanwhile, McFadden too often goes down at first contact, doesn't fight for yardage and lacks vision
Do you see McFadden making some of the runs Bush does here? Taking on multiple Linebackers and pushing them back. Sure, McFadden makes that sprint, but this just shows Bush is capable of it too.Week 17 Michael Bush Highlights
Bush deserves his shot, whether he gets it or not from Al Davis is another story. McFadden is going to get his regardless.
I DO see a Bush/McFadden Thunder/Lightning committee in the future though.
Not sure where it leaves Fargas.
