    Albert McClellan



    Since it doesn't seem like Courtney Upshaw will be ready for the Bengals, does this make Albert McClellan a full-time starter?

    McClellan is a smart player with a quality work ethic and a good amount of potential. I am glad to see him get this chance.

    Let me be clear, no one is or was going to replace Terrell Suggs. However, the reality is that Albert McClellan is going to be the best option out there and that it isn't as bad a reality as people might think .

    Well between him, Kruger, Upshaw and Kindle he's definitely been the most consistent. I was impressed with his ability to not only set the edge but to shed blocks too.

    He was practically named a starter weeks ago. Hes clearly been the best option, even when upshaw was healthy he didnt show anything near what mccellan did. No brainer imo.

    It's not like there is someone else on the roster who can do that job.

    McClellan has looked better than Kruger and it's not even close. If we where to sign a vet to start for us, I'd rather have McClellan start along side him than Kruger, from what I've seen of the preseason.

    Btw McClellan is jacked, just saying...

    He also has great size at 6#2 and 255 lbs.

    It's a leap of faith with McClellin. If the unit was stronger I think he'd be fine. Given the players around him it's going to be a little tougher. Hopefully he is up to the challenge. We do know he's going to work his ass off to succeed which is a great thing.

    Yes I have. While the competition has not been fantastic per se, Albert has earned the job.

    Would he start at JJs spot or Suggs spot?

    Re: Albert McClellan

    Comparing an up and coming player to the NFL's defensive player of the year is unfair, so I won't entertain it.

    I think he'd certainly push JJ for starting time. It's one of those cases where it seems unlikely, but we'd have said that Dennis Pitta had no business being compared to Todd Heap, but now it's clear Pitta passed Todd in terms of contribution.

    I think it's fair to say McClellan could start on nearly any defense in the NFL right now.
