Browns quarterback Cot McCoy will start Thursday night when the Browns take on the Chicago Bears, Brandon Weeden will not play. Just recently Pat Shurmur said he has a lot of confidence in McCoy, you just have to wonder if the Cleveland Browns have wondered if they named Brandon Weeden the Browns starting quarterback prematurely. McCoy has been better than Weeden throughout the preseason thus far. If McCoy goes out to play against the Bears with some of the Browns starters in the line up he could really impress Shurmur and the Browns brass of he is successful.
There is no doubt Brandon Weeden can play Q.B. in the NFL, there is a ton of doubt if he can play Q.B. for the Cleveland Browns with the offensive line the Browns now have. The West coast offense takes a guy that can move around back there, in the 3 preseason games we have seen Weeden in, he has had trouble moving. McCoy can be a more productive quarterback for the Browns with the present situation than Brandon Weeden can. Weeden needs more time to become accustomed to playing in the NFL. The defensive pass rush looks like it scares Brandon Weeden, until he gets use to the speed of the game the Browns would be better off starting Colt McCoy.
We will see if McCoy looks good this Thursday when the Cleveland Browns take on the Chicago Bears…..
