bitonti Posted October 27, 2009 Share Posted October 27, 2009 I think its pretty safe to say McFadden is a bust. Dorsey as well. SO let's imagine Al Davis decides to do something crazy and cut Darren McFadden tomorrow. DMC is now on the open market... he's worked out and he's still running that same 4.3 he ran 2 years ago... he's 23 years old... would you be opposed to the Jets signing him? After all... who would want a BUST on their team? NO ONE would want a BUST! If you answer this question honestly hopefully you will see what I am trying to say. DMC has value and upside still therefore is NOT a BUST at least not yet. *** NO offense but I don't think you guys truly understand what a BUST is. Dimitrius Underwood went to the mental institution twice, escapes and tried to kill himself. He never gave anything of value to anyone as a football player. That's a BUST. Lawrence Phillips drags his girlfriend down a flight of stairs and was even more terrible as a running back than he was as a human being. That's a BUST. meanwhile, "KING BUST" a.k.a. DRob started 80+ games including several playoff victories but never lived up to draft selection and his knee gave out. That's a DISSPOINTMENT. there is a big difference between Bust and Dissapointment... and not just in my mind. you guys live in this world of extremes where a player is either amazing or a bust... I don't see it that way. There's alot of gray area... if a player has reached a point where he's still in his first few seasons and he can't get an NFL contract that's a BUST. If a guy plays for 10 or 15 years but just didn't get it done for the first 3, that's NOT a BUST! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
