McFadden Already Performing at NFL Level

Darren McFadden is already performing like an NFL superstar. And it has nothing to do with his 4.27 (or was it 4.33) 40-yard dash. Evidentially, McFadden already has been hit with a paternity suit and has two other children on the way. So when they compare McFadden to Travis Henry, it has nothing to do with the running back position. In fact, McFadden could be the guy to break Henry's NFL mark and also could cross the sports boundries to challenge some of the best in sports history such as Steve Garvey and Shawn Kemp.

But give the guy a break. He is from Arkansas. Having only three kids by the time he is 20 is well below the state's average.

McFadden is the kind of guy you want on your team, however. With that many mouths to feed, you know that he is going to be motivated. Although, you can feel the Falcons' reluctance to draft McFadden seeing that they had a little trouble with another player who liked to spread his seed without protection. But they can turn this into a marketing tool and could become the first NFL team sponsored by the RU486 pill.

With siblings for parents?

I'll have a clever reply for this one just as soon as I find my one-hitter.
