I heard somewhere that McClain was released?Now this one to me doesnt make sense.
Could you...be more specific?
McClain cut apparently
I read it on the oakland forum.McClein also tweeted about it.
Raiders forums are saying the same thing. Apparently McClain's been posting all about it on social media.
Wow. McClain has possibly the worst attitude for a player I've ever seen. I don't care how much physical potential he has--please pass on him, BB.
Searching Googlr came up with ..... Oakland Raiders Set to Cut LB Rolando McClain | Bleacher Report
Looks like one more example of good measurables and talent, but not being able to work hard enough and have the proper attitude of a winner and team player.
Many were certainly high on him coming out of college.
There aren't many tears being shed over at Raiderfans.net.....
The raiders are a mess.This guy had tons of talent at alabama.I am sure some team will give him a chance but it most likely will be another terrible team.
I remember just 2 years ago Raiders fans were bragging about how their LB pick was WAY better than Spikes
Even if McClain turned out to be good, that's literally bragging to another team that your high first rounder is better than their late second rounder.
I have a strong feeling that will not be much of a concern in Foxborough, Elijah.
Not only that, but McClain is an ILB right? I think that we're pretty good in that area right now--not that I think Belichick would waste one minute considering it though.
The team building process combined with the ability to continue learning and listening to your higher ups are some of the intangibles that McClain would not get here. There's no spot on the precious 53 man roster for a bad attitude player here, even if they have talent...at least not for long anyway.
I don't catch too many Raiders games so I haven't seen him since he was in college. Would he at least be an upgrade in coverage? The defense has had its share of hard times this season against tight ends.
Thats one thing that bugs me, the LB coverage.Sometimes they look loss out there.I am not the biggest Patricia fan and i am still not.:snob:
McClain doesn't do anything well. He's one of many reasons that Raiders defense is so bad.
The LB coverage is bad because we don't have a single coverage linebacker. Have you looked at those guys? It isn't coaching, they just aren't physically apt to cover well.
Then why draft LBs that cant cover the field?Its frustrating considering the secondary.
I think Hightower is a guy thats athletic enough to do it.
From last year:
Former Alabama linebacker Rolando McClain arrested in Decatur | al.com
Sounds like a great guy.
It's one thing to take in a player who has a load of talent but a bad attitude. McClain has ZERO talent (He was so overrated coming out of Alabama) and is most definitely not someone to be counted upon as a respected individual.
What time period expired between this thought?
