CARSON PALMER SAYS DARREN MCFADDEN IS NFL'S BEST RB
Last Sunday, Darren McFadden showed signs of being the elite running back the Oakland Raiders thought they were getting when they made him the No. 4 overall pick of the 2008 draft.
McFadden amassed 113 yards on 18 carries against the Steelers, including breaking loose for a 64-yard touchdown gallop.
McFadden also picked up high praise from Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer, who's campaigning to have his teammate recognized as the best RB in the NFL.
Palmer's take on McFadden, as voiced to Fox Sports Radio:
“I think he’s the best, of course I’m biased. I get to see him every day and work with him but he’s got it all. He's fast, he’s explosive, he’s quick, he has a great stiff arm, he catches the ball really well, he’s reliable in pass protection, you can leave him on the field for every play, for all three downs and he really doesn’t have a weakness.
"If you watched the game last week you saw that he had a chance to have a 20- or 30-yard gain and the backside corner had the angle on him and he absolutely turned on the Jets and outran a corner who had a pretty good angle on him to the end zone for a 60 yard run. So when you combine all the attributes he has plus you combine the fact that he can really score from anywhere on the field, like I said, I’m biased but I think he’s the best.”
