    I find McClain entertaining and informative but he does like to hear himself talk sometimes and will throw stuff out there just to get a reaction sometimes.

    Amen. He's wrong as often as Florio at PFT is. McClain is WAY overrated by everyone around here. Kinda like his buddy Plaster.

    KB is just not physical enough of a player to take on opposing linemen at the line of scrimage and meet the RB in the hole. KB is best used to blitz the gaps and scrape the line and chase down the play away from him. Our run defense would suffer, and I do mean suffer, dramatically with KB at MLB.

    If anyone goes to the middle, it's Sirmon, or a draftee.

    KB's skills lie in his ability to run the field or blitz from the edge/gaps. He is not going to man-up and shed a center or guard to make a tackle up the middle. What we need is another one like him on the other side and a pounder in the middle.

    KB is physical, but in his own space and not face-to-face with a lineman.

    Having a center on Bulluck isn't a bad matchup. The best MLBs don't "take on" offensive lineman but beat them by avoiding blocks with their quickness. This idea that Sirmon can somehow take on a center straight up and be any more successfull than Bulluck would be non-sense as well. Once the center or any OL gets a body on a LB there is a 50+ advantage no matter who the LB is. Having stout DTs that can keep the center and OGs off the MLB is imperative in a 4-3. If the center does come out on the MLB that leaves the DTs one on one to stuff the middle. I'm not saying Bulluck is a prototypical MLB but he would be better than people think and our run defense on the edges would improve dramatically.
