Coach Dennis Allen confirmed that the Raiders will build their rushing offense around Darren McFadden.
After wasting a year trying to force McFadden into former OC Greg Knapp's zone scheme, Allen has taken control now. "(McFadden's) most effective years have been in a downhill, power scheme," Allen said. "That's why Greg Olson and Tony Sparano are here." With Olson calling plays and Sparano coaching the line, McFadden won't have any schematic excuses this year. Entering a contract year, there's plenty of bounce-back appeal here.
