Yeah, as much as McFadden has to run for us, he'll be weighing 90 pounds by Week 6.
If only Oakland could clean up their stupid penalties, get more focused, get an actual passing game they could make the playoffs. Their defense was on point today.

Defense looked solid
McFadden was a beast hopefully stays healthy
Palmer once again erratic and a drive killer
Ford dropped easy catches
Streeter solid rookie debut
Pryor still needs to work on mechanics, look to pass first but made some nice plays

Carson Palmer: No Room For Chad Johnson On Raiders
"Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer played alongside Chad Johnson for seven seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, forming one of the better QB-WR combos in franchise history.
Johnson's rather epic free fall from grace has him looking for work, but it's unlikely teams will come calling any time soon -- especially the Raiders.
Oakland's young group of receivers is banged up after two preseason games. Jacoby Ford is in a protective boot after injuring his foot. Denarius Moore's hamstring remains a nuisance, and Darrius Heyward-Bey is back at practice after spraining his shoulder in last Friday's loss to the Cardinals.
Despite the rash of injuries, Palmer sees no reason to upset the apple cart by signing Johnson -- but it's nothing personal."

The Oakland Raiders have an agreement in principle to acquire quarterback Matt Flynn from the Seattle Seahawks for two draft picks -- one in the 2014 draft and a conditional pick in 2015, according to league sources.The Raiders also are trying to finalize a trade that will send Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals for minimal compensation, sources said.The Seahawks signed the 27-year-old Flynn as a free agent last offseason from Green Bay before drafting Russell Wilson, who won the starting role in the preseason and led the team to a wild-card playoff win against the Washington Redskins. Flynn has made only two career starts and threw only nine passes last season.Flynn's contract has him scheduled to make $5.25 million in base salary this season.Palmer is scheduled to make $13 million in base salary this season and a source has said it is unlikely he would agree to restructure his contract.The 33-year-old Palmer passed for 4,018 yards with 22 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season for the Raiders, who acquired the quarterback from the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2011 season for a 2012 first-round draft pick and a second-round selection in the 2013 draft.
Flynn in, Palmer out.

I have no idea how Flynn will do. He's started in 2 games I think? I know his last start with Green Bay was great, but I don't think you can really judge him based on that. I think the FO is doing what needs to be done with this team, but the Raiders' situation will just keep them from improving quickly. Not having a 2nd rounder hurts. They gave up more draft picks for an unproven QB, but I don't think 5th rounder and another low rounder next season is too bad. I'm not as big on Pryor as other fans are. He just seems way too inaccurate.
Is trading down for more draft picks an option? I'm in favor of that. The Raiders can use more talent in a lot of places to say the least.
