    MAN, LOSING REALLY MAKES US FANS GO INSANE...

    I'm surprised to see that even my Fav beat writer Jerry mac caught a bit of the crazies.

    Look... Dumping McFadden right now would be a huge mistake... Not just for the sake of losing him, but the off chance that he goes to somewhere (Let's pretend the Seahawks for arguments sake, since they need a RB) and rips off a 1000+ yrd season, looks great, helps them immediately.


    This happening would serve as another black cloud over the Raiders dismal decade.

    As for Bush, we are better served with Bush on the team, when compared what we would get for him.

    Agree.

    We would be crazy (or desperate) to trade away Bush or McFadden at this stage when our offence is so short of potential play makers.

    The punishment Fargas absorbs will start to slow him down - he's not a break away threat, so I don't see him being attractive to other teams.

    Yes McFadden seems to go down too easily on first contact, and he seems to slip when cutting a lot, but I'd keep all three and focus on rebuilding our OL rather than changing the backs.

    FB remains a concern though.
