Perhaps in this preseason, but as a total body of work I thought McClain had a significant edge.
No other way of proving to you, than stating I specifically went back and watched every game last season on nfl rewind. I wacthed every preseason game twice this year. I paid more focus to the d-line than anything else. I have no reason to be biased towards one over the other. Trust me on this one, or don't just trust the front office.
3-techs always get more love from the fans becuase they have different responsibilites. The 3-tech gets to rush the passer and face more 1 on 1 matchups. The Nose has to do the dirty work,absorb many double teams and stuff the run. Theres a good ron edwards video on panthers.com where Edwards does a great job of explaining the responsiiblities of the nose
