I hate to be objective all the time, but I don't agree with the mcclain statement. He takes alot of flack for a poor defense, period. Statistically he outplayed some of the top LB's in the game. More tackles, more solo takes, more sacks, & more passes defended. He gets blamed for not stopping the run when no one on the D line have him any help including wut was are best run support big john henderson. The whole d line got stood straight up at the snap if the ball. With the numbers he had if anyone would've gave him a lil help we would've made the playoffs. They put him in bad situations alot so I ain't feeling how everybody keep jumping on him like ya'll trying to break him our something. & as his court problem goes, no one knows wut happened so the speculation is just that speculation .r

NJ, I agree about McLain. I like having him on the team. I think he does better than people give him credit for (100 tackles last year or something like that?). It's just another case of expectations being so high because of the draft pick. He's still got time to learn and develop more.

As far as the off-field antics....well......that crap has to stop. He shouldn't have even been there. He wasn't found guilty on ALL counts because of speculation LOL.

Yea the thing about the courts is yea out def gotta stop, but he was down there for his grand pop funeral & its documented that his car was shot at 3 days b4 the incident. With that said, emotions running high already cuz ur grandpa, he made some bad decisions & mckenzie must understand cuz he don't play stupidity yet rolondo is still wit us. We moving to a 3-4 this year & watch all his haters turn band wagon riders when he flourishes.
