Say what you will but I find Watt to be a good comparison for McClellin. They may run a 3-4 but he rushes with his hand down more often than not.
He always has a hand in the ground; the 3-4 DE has different responsibilities (and size as mentioned) than a 4-3 speed rusher. He frequently ends up going against the guard allowing for Brooks Reed (OLB) to rush the tackle and/or RB/TE.
Also, Shaun Cody (NT) suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung on Sunday. Texans have two great DEs in Watt+Smith, but they are weak up the middle, especially now with Cushing out and Cody severely limited. Bears need to pound the ball up the middle behind Garza and the OGs.

Similiar skillset with some difference in size ,, Both also lousy vs run and only have 1 move at line to get to QB
Both should be 3-4 OLB's
Everyone's known Shea would be a project since they drafted him. He's 3rd on the team in hurries and made a nice spin move to rush Hasselbeck into the Urlacher pick 6 on Sunday. He'll get better as he improves his strength and technique. Look at Wootton; yeah he's finally healthy (knock on wood) but he also got stronger+improved his technique in the offseason. It's paying off. For every Mark Anderson there are tons of lineman who didn't do much their rookie year yet became solid or great pass rushers.
just played a great game of Madden for my 100th win. cutler was 21-21 for ~370 and 5tds . not sure on exact yardage since guy quit after a pick 6 with about 2 min left. only time i can ever remember not throwing an incompletion in the 8 years I've been playing Madden.
