  • Darren McFadden = Lawrence Phillips?

    I've come out as a pretty big supporter of McFadden, so this isn't mean as an insult, but I was playing around on youtube today and watched some old Lawrence Phillips film. The comparisons are pretty stark to me, even in terms of build and scheme. The running style is very similar, find a whole and run straight downhill.

    Of course the difference is that McFadden's character concerns consist of some tatoos and a bar fight, where as Phillips hit women and was a total thug.

    Curious if other people see the comparison. I had always thought of McFadden as a poor man's Bo Jackson, but Phillips actually makes more sense now.

    Here's some footage of Phillips for you kiddies out there:

    Wow, that is a real noticable comparison.
    both are tall
    run tall
    real elusive, good straightline speed.
    Lets hope d-mac doesnt get in trouble
    On August 21, 2005, Phillips was arrested for assault after allegedly driving a car into three teenagers, following a dispute with the teens during a pick-up football game in Los Angeles, California.

      I think Phillips could actually run between the tackles more so than D-mac. but many similiarities
      my scent?...like making love to a lumberjack
      <TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
      <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
      <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

        It's almost comical what a screw-up he was. Ya know, if it wasn't for all those battered women.

          apparently he might have to go to prison for 20 years.
          Sad and all, but he brought it upon himself. It seemed so many people tried to help him.

            I love how wrong Joe Theisman is about every single point in this video. I wonder if he's ever been right about anything.

              It's been a long time since I've watched any Lawrence Phillips footage, I had forgotten what an awesome runner he was. Now that I think about it, he looks just like Willis McGahee did at Miami.

              I think McFadden has a better top gear and isn't quite a shifty in the open field, but I will admit that once Phillips hit his stride it was hard not to see the comparison.

                        I heard Lawrence Phillips sold his national championship ring to a Vegas pawn shop for basically nothing and told the owner he needed to get out of town quick. He is a sad waste of talent. I remember people thought the Ravens should have taken him over Ogden. I am glad that did not happen.

                          i remember a few years back on another board i was at, a topic came up when it looked like phillips might have been selling his national championship ring on ebay. pretty funny...turns out it was actually him. dunno if it sold or not....

                          its sad how much of a screw up he was though

                            kinda see it, really only once he breaks one

                            re: the other aspects of his running, i'd say rashard mendenhall resembles a poor man's Phillips
