LOL @ this whole post.
McClain was absolutely awful in Oakland. While I'm willing to admit a better team and better talent around him would surely make him look better, there's absolutely nothing about the guy's NFL resume that would make anyone think his ceiling is at Bowman's level.
On top of that, the LBs playing next to BOWMAN (not Willis) have been the ones looking better than they are (Wilhoite, Grant). We have yet to see whether Willis can make the guy next to him look good the way Bowman did.
