McFadden or Bush – who will emerge as No. 1?

March 23, 2010

Heading into the 2010 season, Tom Cable is through with the committee running back scheme - he wants a starter. Cable is looking for a back who can carry the ball on every down.

Here's what he had to say at the NFL owners meeting this past week.

"We'll move forward with those two guys," Cable said. "I think it will help both of them that they will get more work. The question with (Darren) is, now that he's healthy, can he be an everydown back? And I think he can be."

With the Raiders' release of Justin Fargas, expect competition for the starting job at the running back position to be pretty stiff this off-season.

Regardless of who emerges as the No. 1, the RB position looks to be in good shape this year, especially if Oakland addresses their needs on the O-Line.
