I wish him the best. If the Pats turn him into a pro bowler i'm through with Rivera.

Dude I don't really say this people unless it is needed. But your a moron. Mcclain never got any good coaching here. Like someone just said. He needs the right coaching and he could become a pro bowler in the next few years. With a guy like Vince Wilfork there to teach him and the coaches as well. You never know what will happen. He has been in the league one year. Give him a chance.

What

Why would I give him a chance when he's on the Patriots? Why did the Panthers keep Fua but not Mcclain? Both have been pretty bad but maybe the panthers liked Fuas work ethic over Mcclain? There has to be a reason why the panthers gave up on him before fuging year two.

He is, by all intents and purposes, a failed pick by the Panthers. There is no other way around this.

Also, not every NE Patriot is a pro bowler.

I don't see your point about Neblett. He's on a four game suspension.....and is mysteriously ill. They found a way to keep him around through cuts, because of his stated upside. Whether he sticks around after his suspension, well we'll see. You're just proving my point though - if the Panthers value you they will keep you.

Ultimately it became clear they had more faith in, and valued Nebbles more than McClain after the addition of Edwards. Like you said if they value you they will keep you. McClain wasn't kept, Couldn't he have had some 'illness' too?

He may not be a bust by your standards, but he was a bad pick. Would Jimmy Clausen be excused from this talk because we only used him for one year before replacing him with a superior player? The fact that the FO was so eager to get rid of him so quickly after his rookie year tells me that they felt that he wouldn't ever develop as good as big name DT Dwan Edwards is THIS YEAR (who has been a good player this year no doubt).

It may be by my standards, but I don't recall many situations like McClains, after one year being let go. Especially after a very weird season with no OTA's and a Lock out and all that.

Jimmy shouldn't be here to be honest but he is. To take your view on it, does this mean that the brass saw something in him? I highly doubt that. He's a back up nothing more. Even then he lost his job to a Vet, like McClain has. except that Jimmy is still on the roster.

Maybe they felt his ceiling wouldn't reach as high as Edwards is now? I don't know, all I'm saying is that he's certainly not a bust just because we let him go. I just don't see him being a bust. Maybe 2 years down the road. But certainly not, this year.

It pains me to say it but I kind of hope he is a bust that way it won't look as bad if he doesn't become one and we let him go for Edwards. Then there's the flip of that coin that if he is a bust our FO can't detect talent...

Ahh so we were saying the same thing. Carry on then.

"McClain showed some flashes of penetrating ability..."

In the bedroom perhaps? I never saw any ability to penetrate anything when he was on the field.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
