In the wake of the McClain acquisition, I have seen many people posting this seems to be a departure from the rkg philosophy; some even suggesting that Marinelli is responsible for throwing that tired mantra away. As a result, I thought it be a good idea we revisit the definition of RKG, Jason Garrett quotes swiped from BTB (for fully story visit here http://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2012...oys-draft-what-exactly-is-a-right-kind-of-guy): "The most important thing is we talk about what it means to be a Dallas Cowboy, the kind of guys we want on our football team. If you look at the guys we've selected, each of these six guys represents that. They're good football players. The top three guys are from big schools. They're prominent players at that school, they have production at a high level. And then as we've gotten a little further down in the draft we've been able to take some guys who we think can fit a particular role for us. At least to create some competition on our football team. Again, they have the right measurables, they're the Right Kind Of Guys, we think they're good football players." "Obviously they have to have the physical requirements to play this game. The measurables, the talent, the aptitude to play. Part of that is being "The Right Kind Of Guy." "You want guys who love to play football and show you that they love it each and every day. Passion, enthusiasm, emotion, all of those things come into it....It's one thing to talk that, but you need to see that." Then Jason expands on how he defines "The Wrong Kind Of Guy": "The guys who don't love to play football. Guys who don't love to work. The guys who don't love to be around their teammates. The guys who aren't trying to be the best they can be. All those things." Obviously, McClain has some red flags based on the above definition. He has been quoted as saying he doesn't love football. During his off-the-field struggles, he also stopped putting in the work. But while with the Crimson Tide, he embodied the RKG definition. So if that guy can emerge from the ashes of an otherwise burned out career, this will prove to be a steal. But so there is no further confusion, RKG doesn't mean country-club membership touting boy scout who spends his off time looking for opportunities to help old ladies across the street.
