Default Darren McFadden - Fast In Many Ways

This news from the combine

News got out that Arkansas running back Darren McFadden is not only battling a paternity suit, but that he told a team during an interview Saturday night that he has two children on the way. In addition to meeting with the Falcons, he met with the Raiders, who pick fourth in the draft, and several other teams.

McFadden created a major buzz at the NFL scouting combine when he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.27 seconds on Sunday.

McFadden ran right after Georgia running back Kregg Lumpkin ran a 4.64. On McFadden’s second timed 40-yard run, he was clocked at 4.33 seconds.

A 4.27 40 overcomes a lot of "character" concerns

With that kind of speed Osama Bin Laden would be a top 5 pick

His character issues can be addressed with a clause in his contract. There was a guy who ran faster than him. It was Chris Johnson from East Carolina with a 4.24. Mike Mayock said it was the fastest time he ever seen.

Unfortunately, 4.27 doesn't seem fast enough... 3 kids by 3 different mothers?

Nope, not fast enough.

I dunno - if I'm a GM, I would have a hard time giving an 8-figure contract to someone who is so obviously irresponsible, but that's just me. Plenty of other kids with major talent that don't have a problem with knocking up anything that walks to choose from.

Yep...

And sorry, but 3 children... 2 on the way at the same time from different mothers? That is purely irresponsible.

I am not even talking about the issue of morality... Just responsibility. There is a MAJOR responsibility in the act of creating human life. If you treat it like a crap shoot or a saturday night bowling league... it just doesn't say much about your character.

I wouldn't be upset if his "character problems" dropped him to 9.

Oh but wait....hasn't the Golden Boy Tom Brady set a precedent with this already. McFadden just wants to act like the "Big Boys"...right?
