Patriots sign Panthers draft bust Terrell McClain

54 posts in this topic

since the headline in the article identifies him as "Panther bust" I would certainly think this qualifies as Panther related.

Is it the team or the player? We are about to find out.

People throw the word 'bust' around too often when it's not even warranted. How is this guy a bust after one playing year? SMH.

The only reason he was cut is because of Dwan Edwards, that is leagues ahead of McClain. Essentially an Upgrade at the position. How does that make him a bust?

A bust to me is a person that is highly regarded and highly graded that goes early in the rounds of the draft that does not produce in 2-3 years of his employment, he doesn't live up to the standards so to speak.

MaCclain, after one year is not a bust. He was let go for a better product. Dwan has 3.5 sacks and I think 9-10 tackles so far this season. I doubt McClain would produce these numbers this year so far.

He's still young so he can develop. The brass just took a chance on Edwards and it's paying off. The only thing that I do not like is that a 3rd rounder was, for a lack of a better term, wasted on him. That third could have been used for a Safety or Pass Rushing DE that year.

Because we didn't want McClain, he's a bust.

Huddle displaying its brilliant logic once again.

The fact is that if the Panthers had expected McClain to progress at anything resembling an acceptable rate they would have kept him regardless of picking up Dwan. As it was however, they opted to drop a DT for a DT. The reality is that McClain's value to the team was less than any of the people who haven't received a jersey so far this year.

We don't have infinite room on the roster. We wanted 3 QBs, we wanted Armanti because Gettis was injured. There was no room for Dwan, so we cut a DT to bring him on board. Yes, we believed McClain was expendable, but I don't know how people get "bust" from that. No Dwan Edwards and McClain is still on the roster.
