    So as Bush. Could be a bust depending on what team he goes to.

    Everything about McFadden looks great except for one thing:

    Hit him below the hips and he goes down every time.

    I think he will be much more successful than Bush, but I don't think he will be a 20 carries a game running back. I think you will see something like 10 maybe 15 carries a game and alot of passes thrown his way, much like Bush, except like I said before he will be more effective at it.

    In other words, he will be able to go between the tackles more.

    I watched the interview with him this morning on ESPN wehre he addresses his off the field issues and his past. I am not convinced after watching and listening carefully he can avoid trouble if it presents itself to him. His answers about walking away if there is trouble for himself or his crew seemed coached. There have been questions about the size of his lower body etc but his ability to avoid the distractions all player smust deal wife now would be a bigger concern to me.
