Raiders checklist #2
It wasn't just the yards that made McFadden a success. It was the way he got them. Though he is blessed with breakaway speed, McFadden frequently showed a surprising toughness while both bowling over defenders and finding his way into the end zone. McFadden also proved to be a capable receiver out of the backfield, which made him a frequent target of Oakland's quarterbacks.

As good as Michael Bush is, he doesn't have the moves or hands that McFadden does. Consider that teams didn't have to worry about Oakland's passing game much, especially early in the season, yet McFadden routinely shredded defenses with ease.
While rookie Taiwan Jones looks like he could be a nice addition in the backfield, but the Raiders know full well the success of their offense depends on the feet — and hands — of McFadden.
