It is starting to look like the Browns quarterback competition will be Colt McCoy going against Brandon Weeden and Thad Lewis. If you listen to people who have been brain washed by the Browns former coaching staff, they think McCoy shouldn’t even be wearing a Browns uniform.
The old leadership on the Browns did a great number on ruining the personal image of Colt McCoy. They handed the starting job to Weeden last season and we all saw the results. It was clear that McCoy could move the team more effectively in the preseason. It was Clear that when Weeden was knocked out of the game in Denver, it was McCoy that was the only Cleveland quarterback able to take the team into the end-zone for a touchdown.
Weeden led one of the worse red-zone offenses in the NFL last season. The result was a team that finished the season with only 5 wins. Sure the Browns scored more points in 2012 than they did in 2011. The result was still 5 wins.
McCoy never had a real shot at staring in 2012. Weeden was taken in the draft with the Browns 2nd pick in the first round (22nd overall) and from that point on he was the starting quarterback even though is was clear by the way he performed on the field he wasn’t ready to start in the NFL.
This season the new coaching staff led by Rob Chudzinski are going to take a serious look at who the starting quarterback will be. If they take all things into consideration, McCoy could have a chance to win the starting role.
It takes more than a strong arm in the NFL to win football games. There are things that McCoy brings to the field that Weeden can’t. Just like there are things Weeden brings that Colt Doesn’t. But when you add it all up McCoy brings more positive attributes to the field than Brandon Weeden does.
It should be an interesting camp and preseason in Cleveland in 2013. Lets hope the best possible quarterback does get named to the starting role this season. Browns fans are growing tired of waiting to see a winning season.
