Darren McFadden has fallen and he can’t get up.
In the last two games, McFadden, who has looked every bit the No. 4 overall pick in 2008, has 16 yards on 18 carries. Yes, there are issues with the offensive line. Privately, the coaching staff is concerned that he’s not running as he did before.
Right tackle Langston Walker seemed to think opposing teams are simply taking him (and other Raiders running backs) away.
“If teams are smart, if they have good defensive coordinators, they are going to load up against the run when they play us,” Walker said.
