Good to know we are paying McKinnie 7-8 million a year when Artis f***** Hicks is just as productive.
Maybe the suspension will light a fire under his ass and he will come back and play at the level that he should. And maybe going against Allen in training camp will help him against speed rushers. I can only hope.....
Hell, the pass blocking was better than Mckinnie would have done. Freeney was a non factor other than one play. Mckinnie always gets toasted by speed rushers.
But in the long run Mckinnie is still a much better run blocker.
