We saw it last night folks, Colt McCoy's ability to move the Cleveland Browns down the field and get them into the end zone. McCoy led the Browns in a 14 play 58 yard drive that ate nearly 8 minutes off the clock. McCoy went 4 for 6 in passing and showed he could get the ball to his receivers. McCoy even converted a 4th and 1 with a pass play. The Browns would likely get nothing that would be an immediate improvement to the team if they traded Colt McCoy. Why bother, this kid can win football games with the right choice of play-calling and the right guys to catch the ball.
The Browns are in a better place with McCoy then they would be by trading him. McCoy knows the Browns offense. Sure he may be a little dissatisfied being Weeden's back up but he still proves over and over again he can do the job. The Browns weak point this season remains the O-line. If Weeden goes down which could happen quickly with his lack of mobility, McCoy could step in and help the Browns win. The Cleveland Browns are a better team than they would be without Colt McCoy. I know this is where all the anti Colt people come in and say,"Colt was in there with 2nd teamer's" Sure he might have been. Regardless, the guys McCoy faced in both preseason games he's played in are good enough to be in the NFL and he moves the ball.
If you saw McCoy play last night you would have to agree he looks better than he did last year. There is nothing good that can come out of a Colt McCoy deal. If there was Heckert may have already pulled the trigger. McCoy is a better back up than Wallace and a better team player than Wallace. I say stop all the crap and keep Colt McCoy on the Cleveland Browns. He can help the team win...
