Rolando Mcclain


Recommended Posts

He hasn't been awful in Oakland. I do go back to what I heard one of the Oakland beat people say a season or two back about him though.

"He makes tackles...he doesn't make plays."

That said, while I think Dent is playing much better then he was earlier in the season McClain would likely be better than any LB we have on our roster not named Weatherspoon.

Nicholas is better too imo

Find answer.

Those pics were taken during his arrest in 2011 because he fired a gun next to another guy's head and was charged with third-degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm inside the city limits

Sorry for not putting it in my last post

Where's KoG when you need him? Should be able to offer a good opinion on this dude being a Tide fan.

Let's look at the facts.

Big guy, good combine, decent stats http://www.nfl.com/player/rolandomcclain/496941/careerstats

played for a team where good players go to end their careers.

Made a mistake some years back. Always had a temper and nastiness. Was kept in check by a good coach and strong family minded teammates.

McClain is a classic story of, "I suck as a human being and have serious flaws. I need good strong leaders to keep me focused."

He's been too good to be a bust, not good enough to live up to his hype. He a medium risk/high reward player. If you give him too much, he may not live up to what is given. The thing is, if he comes in with the idea that he has a chance of winning, he may just give a little extra.

PLUS...Nolan runs a very similar defense to what McClain is use to. Only we run more 4-3 than 3-4, but they did a similar mix with it being more 3-4 than 4-3.
