According to most of the Caste media, former Philadelphia Eagle Mike Mamula was a Historic NFL Draft Bust. Meanwhile, soon-to-be free agent Jadeveon Clowney is currently Considered a Franchise Player, seeking a 'market-setting contract'? Amazingly, however, their stats are strikingly similar at the same junctures (games played) of their respective careers? Clowney has more tackles, but he padded those stats a bit by playing some middle and outside linebacker, in addition to defensive end. Mamula, a natural 3-4 outside linebacker due to his size, regrettably only played defensive end in the NFL. Clowney has a lot more Tackles For Losses, but TFL's were not an official stat until 1999, so most of Mamula's career they were not credited to his stats sheet, meaning we simply can't compare them. Games Played: Mamula 77; Clowney 75 Game Started: Mamula 64; Clowney 66 # Career Int's: Mamula 1/41 Yards/1 TD; Clowney 1/27 Yards/ 1 TD Solo Tackles: Mamula 156 Clowney 172 Total Tackles: Mamula 209; Clowney 236 Force Fumble: Mamula 8; Clowney 8 # Career Sacks: Mamula 31.5; Clowney 32 So there you have it: In Kosher Fantasy Land Mamula was an epic, historic draft bust; while Clowney is a superstar, worthy of a 'market-setting contract'.....Can someone explain this one to me before the effusive media hype surrounding Clowney boils over as free agency approaches?
