Requisite Thread: Raiders To Release LB Rolando McClain?

22 posts in this topic

Okay, here is the sell: He played in a 3/4 defense at Bama where he was a unanimous All-American (2009), First-team All-SEC (2008, 2009), Butkus Award (2009), Lambert Award (2009), SEC Defensive Player of the Year (2009), played in the SEC Championship (2009), and BCS National Championship (2010).

Was drafted by the lowly Raiders where the hall of fame, wizardlike braintrust (sarcasm) of Jason Tarver (?) and Johnny Holland (?) has continued to place this square peg into a round hole, running him in a 4/3 defense.

Here's the implication: He cannot play in a 4/3. He's stuck in the NFL backwater that is the Oakland Raiders and in truth he is a caged animal waiting to be unleashed.

Here's the hook: The Indianapolis Colts run a base 3/4 Defense.

Ipso Facto: He joins the Colts and turns from turd to Pro-Bowler. ;)

Everyone locked & loaded? Have at it.

He will go to the waiver wire and we will not have a chance. Even if we did, we have depth at mlb so we don't need to take a flyer on someone with character issues. If the raiders don't want you, we sure shouldn't.

He is not that good and was cut for good reason. They guy is a thug and should be in prison right now.

I'd kick the tires if we get the chance, The Raiders have been a mess since Gannon retired so I wouldn't be surprised at all, Never been a fan of Palmer and the way he quit on Cincy and seeing as how he is the leader of that team I would not be shocked to find that locker room a mess

What is the current situation regarding waivers? I know we'd have been first at the start of the season but have we moved back now?

its based on current record and playoff seating, that's why when Colts wanted the texan returner Holiday he went to denver as that 1 week Denver had 1 less win

I would rather not.

Rolando is a good player but right now, the Raiders are cleaning house.

And character issues? We are one of the classiest teams, I would rather not sign somebody that would jeopardize that.

I would sign up in a HEARTBEAT! I always thought he would be a great NFL player. I would have a zero tolerance policy though.

Signing him would be worth a shot

Sure he may have an attitude problem but playing for a team like the raiders can start a career off in the wrong path.

Love the zero tolerance Ohio Colt....I stay by my usual guns on character issues. I would not sign him, but we do have some vets that may be able to keep him in check....WOW...do I really have an open mind? :sarcasm:

honestly i wouldnt mind giving him a chance.... the guy could prob benefit alot more being away from oakland. Oakland is really not a good place for players right now, they dont know if they want to compete now or rebuild. but as is said in alot of posts he prob wont make it to us. i can actually see KC or Jacksonville getting him

As long as it is not the same zero tolerence policy we used with Ed Johnson.

Honestly people Said the same thing about Vontae Davis "bad behavior" but he's been fine. The reality of it is that all you need is a good environment around you. I'm sure we could turn him into a goodfella

He put a gun to a guys head and fired off a warning shot right next to his head. Any normal citizen would be in jail.

    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      It depends on our offense.  If it takes off and starts to give us leads early, I think this defense will play inspired and will be in the top half.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London

      Fair enough. As to Jabbar I'm not even sure I'd put him as one of my top 5 Centers all time
    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      If this defense finishes mid-pack. .. like the 13th - 18th range. I think it'll have done pretty well. The lack of depth at pass rusher and CB have me very very worried.

      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
