In 13 games, Edwards had 52 tackles, 2.5 sacks.

In 12 games, McClain had 19 tackles, 1 sack.

I think it's an improvement to say the least.

One was a rookie with no off season, the other is an experienced vet. Of course it's an upgrade.

Great signing. Surprised we didn't keep Mcclain as a back-up, he must have fallen apart in some area.

I like this, with experienced vets up front at DT they could teach Fua and Kearse a thing or two. Lets hope at least. McClain though? Stings a bit.

You're so retarted they wouldn't let you on the short bus.


If that helps you ignore the truth, then believe whatever you will dumb@ss.

No independent-thinking observer believes that Fua deserves to be on this team more than McClain. Hurney has shown over and over again that his heart overrides the facts more than they should.

Sycophants like you may believe otherwise.

Whether he had off the field issues or not, Armanti Edwards is still on the team because Hurney PERSONALLY LIKES HIM better. It looks like they were determined to trade one DT for another, so Edwards or Clausen wouldn't even have been a factor in the transaction.

Fua could've been, but they'd rather have him around than McClain. Can't be for football reasons...

This cut smacks of personality/character issues. Damn.

Some of you guys are so fickle. Complain 24/7 about no interior pass rush from the line, then they do something to address it, you cry about that too.

Well,our interior passrush just got better.


Wasn't thinking it could get worse...

With the issues at DT, I would think cutting Clausen or Armanti Edwards and keeping an extra DT might actually be what some would consider a smart move.

You know that Fua and McClain play different positions, right?

Well the Edwards signing makes sense....even of all DTs had a squeaky clean nose off the field. If Carolina was set on number of players being carried at certain spots....it meant a DT then had to go. So McClain and Fua IMO have been overall the least impressive....one had to go to make room

McClain was a larger investment, this FO cares more about that than "liking" someone. Fua outperformed him last year, simple and plain. Apparently McClain had a shitty camp/pre season. I have been a huge fan of McClain since day one, because I wanted us to pick him and we did. I have also been one of his biggest critics, because I expected more from him. I did not want us to pick Fua and was unhappy when we selected him, but I have been defending him on this board since the beginning because the hate is unwarranted, because he has played decent for a young nose.

This cut speaks volume of how far out of favor Mcclain has fallen. Improve or gtfo is basically what they are saying. They must have reached a point where they thought even as depth or in a rotation he would be no help to this team. Mcclian did nothing to show otherwise in preseason so he's gone.
