I clicked on that before actually reading it. I really should get out of that habit.

What kills me is that I clicked it KNOWING it was a video of John McClain.

If it had been a surprise, I could have at least acted outraged. But. No. I clicked into that with my eyes open, so to speak.



EDIT: Oh, wait. Are you talking about a different video?

Rival coach: Texans handled draft right

Quote:
“They did the right thing,” one rival NFL head coach said during the offseason. "Any of those quarterbacks would have been a reach at No. 1. This kid [Clowney] has the ability to have a Jevon Kearse-type rookie year getting after the quarterback."

Kearse had 14 1/2 sacks as a rookie for the Tennessee Titans in 1999. Never mind that Kearse never again had that many sacks in an NFL season. Clowney can worry about his encore performance once his rookie year is done. He is well positioned to be a top pass rusher from the moment he steps on the field to open the 2014 season.

He has a unique combination of size, power and speed. He received pre-draft criticism from some analysts for, they said, not being consistent and not being fundamentally sound in all of his techniques. But some of those criticisms perhaps were overstated, with Clowney under intense scrutiny as the player who almost certainly would have been the top overall pick in the 2013 draft if he had been available.

In retrospect I do believe Clowney was the right move at 1-1, but I still think that our coaching staff underestimated Bridgewater and should have moved up a bit to snatch him at 1-32.

Agreed, but what about @ 31?
