"Coach Rauch has such confidence in this 6-3, 288-pound defensive end that the team depth chart doesn't even list a replacement for McDole. He is almost a perennial All-Star now and the one time he didn't make it, the Buffalo fans resented the snub and made McDole a cause celebre.
As a one-time journeyman pro he tried to make it with St. Louis, Houston and Minnesota. McDole had a problem with migraine headaches which almost ended his career. Now he is in the business of giving headaches. Most teams double-team him because of his great pursuit and his never-quit attitude."
