"Who? Who? ... Exactly," Raiola told the Detroit Free Press, ahead of Sunday's game between the teams.
"You got a defense full of superstars, and you don't hear from the guys that carry weight in my book. (Brian) Urlacher, (Lance) Briggs, (Charles) Tillman, (Israel) Idonije, older guys. (Julius) Peppers. The guys that have been there. We're talking about guys who carry weight. This guy? Not in my book."
Raiola was just getting started, so let's continue, shall we?
"I mean, this guy (Melton), he made it to the Pro Bowl?" Raiola said. "This guy made the Pro Bowl? (Over) Kevin Williams, who worked through injuries all year? (Over) Suh, who's a better player than this guy? Come on.
"It's tiresome, especially from a guy like this, a guy that didn't even play the past two weeks. ... I don't know what to say anymore. In my book, he's a clown. That's all I got."
Well, Raiola nailed the "tiresome" side of it. It's a lot to ask, but we'd love to see these hobby horses play some football at some point.
