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.
Maybe that's a bit too optimistic.
