    I see no way in earth McClain pulls a hayden and goes the entire season without a sack. Maybe I shouldn't say legit but definitely a clear upgrade from what we trotted out last year

    offense can make the defense look better by controlling the clock and scoring...the defense just needs to keep the other team in the 20-24 range and playoffs, here we come...however, once in there, other teams will have better defenses which will negate some of the cowboys offense....

    just get in first

    You're talking up George Selvie and an unproven rookie as replacements for a future Hall of Famer. You don't need to look anywhere but a mirror for 'dense'.

    Until you find some, don't speak of 'understanding'. Critiquing a one technique for sacks? Yeah, go read a book!

    And McClain didn't suddenly become this force since he's now wearing a star, despite what you'd like to believe. He hasn't played a game for this team yet, but people like you want to anoint him as this 'force' the rest of the league missed out on...
    As expected, you've again got nothing. Leave it to the smarter adults to talk about and stick to reading along, you might learn something along the way.

    Sorry if facts hurt your hopes and dreams.

    I guess it's true, ignorance really is bliss...

    Sacks from that position are hardly the true indicator if the player is doing their job. Hayden was nothing but literal body occupying space. McClain needs to demand attention and get push upfield when facing single blocking.

    But interestingly enough McClain has exactly one sack in 32 career games, Hayden has two in 44 games. Maybe McClain can catch him if he plays in all sixteen games this year.

    The difference being that hayden was our starter with many many more snaps than McClain and opportunities to boost those stats but he didn't. He graded out negative for the year and was a liability. Numbers, the eye test, tape everything shows McClain is better than hayden. Guess we'll have to wait til the season to see how much better.

    If McClain has a calling card it is mobility and good pad levels.

    Unfortunately, it's all concentrated in one area. And a pass offense does not a team make.

    On the contrary, I find it misleading that a top pick in an NFL draft, and graded by the entire NFL, can't get so much as a kind word...and from a burn barrel buddy perspective. As if the poor man has done so much as anything to bring down the name of the Dallas Cowboys. But instead, is trying to contribute to the team.

    I can understand why a perspective of holding down views to one's own level is needed for just such an individual...go figure.

    And for the snubbing but lazy, I'd say 16 passes defended for a MLB a pretty strong calling card...in a single season.

    I'll go on record here and now, that if the defensive line holds up this season, no name or not, this team will be just fine come declaring NFC East crown and a playoff birth.

    Oh, there was snubbing of the defensive line instead...:rolleyes: and not basing that on what he can contribute. But the differentiation wasn't offered to define scorn...did one say implied?

    Let's see if the impulse to respond lasts a couple of posts...
