Running back Rashad Jennings should be the starting running back for the Oakland Raiders for the 2014 season. Out of all the fixing that needs to be done in the roster for the Raiders next year, the running back position is pretty much stabilized with Jennings.
Jennings played in 15 games for the Raiders in 2013 and accomplished very nice stats. The running back would have accomplished more if he was the starter right from the get-go. Also, quarterback Terrelle Pryor took some running time away from Jennings.
The running back, in 15 games, accomplished 733 rushing yards in 163 attempts with six touchdowns. Jennings also had 292 yards in receptions. The best part about these stats is that he did not fumble once!
The other good thing about Rashad Jennings is that he didn’t get hurt like Darren McFadden throughout the season. Wow! A running back for the Raiders that can run for the whole season without getting hurt!
Again, with all the fixing that needs to be done with the Silver and Black, the running back position is pretty much doing great! Can you imagine if Jennings would have started from the very beginning? His stats could have possibly rocketed!
In the end, it would be nice to see Rashad Jennings as the starter for the Oakland Raiders next season. He deserves it as most will agree, especially the Raider Nation!
