Guy will be beast for longtime in NFL
Truly sad that a 19th overall pick has been so brutal that he went from gifted starting job in camp to 4th string
Good thing Bears brought back Idonije and Wootton broke out ,, With McClellin as our #2 option all year the Bears would have struggled to win a game
He doesn't play every down like Jones, however he's missed about 3.5 games with injuries this year which is a reason for disparity.
Shea has actually been good vs the run this year in his limited opportunities. He'll never be an edge setting anchor, but that's not why they drafted him. To say Mark Anderson was better as a rookie just shows your ignorance again. In 64 games with the Bears, Anderson had 0 tackles for loss. 0. Mcclellin has 3 in his first 11.5 games.
Also, Mcclellin was never seen as the starting end. Go back to the preseason, I don't believe he started any of the first 3 games. He was brought into be a situational pass rusher like Irvin in Seattle
