I think its part of a conspiracy to field a team where everyone is named Edwards......question though, are 3 Edwards Edwards's or edwardii?

Short version:

Fua plays NT; McClain plays UT.

D Edwards was brought in to play UT.

Thus - Fua stays; McClain goes.

Understandable, Fua will be more of Ron Edwards back up, but I haven't seen anything impressive from him. In my opinion, McClain, at his position, shows more promise than Fua does at his position. But I do agree that we need more push up the middle. Our D-line will have a great rotation in the 5th week when Neblett comes back.

so we drop a young guy and pick up an old guy.

seems to go against this team's entire draft philosophy.

I know its been discussed but I still don't grasp why we kept Clausen on the roster and cut a guy that if nothing else, would he a somewhat useful backup/role player in Mclain... I trust Rivera, and I think he knows what he's doing, but that one intrigues me. Because face it, if we get to a point we need to actually use Clausen, we are fuged.

Having said that, I love the move to get D Edwards in here, hopefully the Edwards bros can hold the middle and open things up for our DEs and LBs.

Did anyone actually watch Clausen this pre-season? I mean really?

He did ok. He was put in with the scrubs and was asked to hand it off about 70% of the time. When he did throw he was accurate - he finally has an OC that designs an offence to his strengths (short/intermediate routes - 'dink and dunk'). Yes he struggled a little under pressure, but most QBs do when defensive players come through basically untouched.

I simply don't get the desire to release him/trade him for a hotdog. He's solid (y'know when the home fans don't fuging boo him) and heaven forbid we might actually have to use him. He probably won't be here next year either.

McClain (and Fua for that matter) on the other hand have zero worth. They've both been outplayed by two UDFAs.

No, I didn't watch Clausen much, I'm not gonna lie... I just can't see much utility in having a guy on the roster that suited up for zero games last season... I certainly don't presume to know more than the coaches and obviously they see more value in Clausen that Mclain, so be it, I'm just curious as to why.
