Come on, get real people.
There's a difference between pro ready and ceiling. KJ has a higher ceiling for sure, in part because of his ability to play man coverage. But McCourty didn't just make the Pro Bowl in his rookie year, he was All Pro. His contributions to his team were WAY above and beyond KJ's. THAT is pro ready. He came into the pros, stepped in immediately, played all 16 games, and was an All Pro.
None of that matters now except to highlight the BS that Kubiak and Co. kept spewing.
