Are Baltimore Ravens Right To Start Jameel McClain Over Arthur Brown?
The Baltimore Ravens made an early commitment this week as they named Jameel McClain to be their weak inside linebacker against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, and McClain isn’t going waste any time proving that he is the man for the job.
“It’s work. It’s hard work going into it,” McClain noted via Baltimoresun. “I don’t know if I really put thought into how much it really means to me. It’s just a chance for me to go out there and prove myself. When I get the opportunity to go out there and compete for the full length of a game, it will get even better and better for me.”
McClain is starting in place of Josh Bynes, who has been sidelined since Week 7 due to an infected finger.
But McClain is also starting over rookie inside linebacker Arthur Brown, who has gotten most of his playing time in obvious passing situations as the Ravens love to use his speed.
I have to say that it is a little troubling that a guy like McClain, who is coming off of a spinal cord contusion which he suffered last December, just took away an opportunity from Brown just like that. Not that McClain isn’t a good player, but when you are coming off of a serious injury like that, one would have to believe that it was Brown’s job to lose at that point.
Brown is a rookie after all, so he will develop as the season goes on. But if Brown isn’t having more of a major role by Week 16, we would have to question a little bit about what is going on with this situation.
