    Ninja Goro on McClain

    Rolando McClain Retrospective from 2011 Season – Ninja Goro

    Even with taking the supposidly correct choice (top ranked LB) in the draft, we got the worst of any LB taken in the first 3 rounds.

    This is happening far too often for it to be a coincidence. I know we haven't had the best of teams the last decade, which makes it hard on the rookies coming in, but a lot of this must fall on how these rookies are coached/mentored.

    Ninja Goro on McClain

    I wonder if it has to do with a player's development and attitude once in Oakland?

    I couldn't get through the "Mistackle" video. That was too painful to watch, I never realized how slow and non-fluid he was on the field.

    Someone slap a "This Truck Makes Wide Turns" sticker on dat @ss.

    Actually they've had some late rounders pan out ok so I'm not sure that's the case. Plus how much development is a top 10 pick going to need to be a solid player.

    I couldn't even stomach to watch the whole video. That made me sick! Clearly a player that is just there to collect a paycheck and who's heart isn't in the game let alone someone who even cares about the Raider organization. Can't wait for this scrub to be gone and the rest of the cancers on this team to finally be jettisoned out of this organization. What a total waste of space.

    Dennis and Reggie PLEASE turn this whole roster inside out as soon as possible and put us on the right track and to finally give some meaning to "Commitment to Excellence" back again.

    Jesus... How did the Raiders not identify any of his major flaws entering the draft.. I swear a 'amature drafting expert' would have had more sucsess than our mad monkeys

    I'd like know what his muscle to blubber ratio is. He seems to be laboring to carry his frame around. Man, he sucks!!
    "The Media hated Davis because he kept his mouth shut when it counted and didn't bend over to their tactics. Most NFL owners hated Davis because he was a 'them', having worked his way up, and also because he had no problem hiring minorities when no one else would. You can only have so many people saying bad things about you before the sheep believe it...And now, the sheep don't even know why they hate the Raiders, it's just always been that way..." - Sir Pig

    Its sad cause Davis actually did what so many people considered the right thing and thats to draft a player based on performance and not his 40 time. Probably the only time I can think of that Al decided that a 40 time doesn't matter and the dude still was a bust.

    ....That just puts in focus just how big a miss McClain was: each of the next 7 LBs taken in the draft became substantially superior players to him for much less money....
    Not to mention Burris !

    Did he really get stiff armed by Caleb Hanie? Did that seriously happen? I dont even remember seeing that during the game. Unbelievable.

    That might have been one of the saddest videos I've ever seen. It was so bad I caught myself laughing at one point cause it was so pathetic. Time to cut ties with this guy. I can't imagine any GM signing him after seeing something like that.

    Even the second video where he makes the tackles....he basically runs into the ballcarrier like a headless chicken and gets lucky enough to knock him off balance.

    The scouts and every analyst on earth. This guy was the consensus can't miss. I look at it as just plain bad luck. Davis was cursed after he left LA.
