You have to wonder about the luck of the Cleveland Browns. RGIII is quarterback number What? And he is out certainly until sometime in November with a serious shoulder injury to his none-throwing shoulder.
With that being said, it looks like the Browns will turn to QB Josh McCown. He said he is heartbroken over the injury to his friend RGIII, and he probably is. After all, they are not only teammates they are friends too.
But in reality, McCown doesn't have time to be heart-broken. He has to step up to the plate so to speak, and take over for the injured Browns quarterback. My only question is how many games will McCown last?
Lets face it folks, the Cleveland Browns have a long way to go before they resemble anything close to an NFL contender. The Offensive line of the Browns is offensive at times. People were saying even Joe Thomas got burned against the Eagles on Sunday.
What these fans are forgetting, is Thomas was drafted in 2007, he's been playing professional football for 9 years. No matter who you are and how good you are, the NFL takes a toll on your body. Joe Thomas was and still is a great linemen, but he isn't going to be around for ever.
The O-line was hurt tremendously with the departure of Alex Mack. Together Mack and Thomas were the solid foundation, which could hold some things together. Now that he's gone, the Browns are truly in trouble on the offensive side of the football.
It's going to take time to put together a line that can protect the QB, and help produce a good running game. Until then any guy who plays quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, will be a siting duck back there.
I know RGIII, was hurt because of the O-line, but more so because he was scrambling down the field and ran into or was hit by a DB. But it was only a matter of time before he suffered an injury.
Now we have to wonder if McCown can make it through the next game, and if the Browns have enough quarterbacks to make it through the 2016 NFL season. I don't think they do, I certainly hope I am wrong....
