Mike Holmgren has said he likes Colt McCoy. Then Browns go out and draft a quarterback after the team tells McCoy he is going to be the guy and Browns head coach Pat Shurmur says he has seen enough. The question now becomes can Holmgren give McCoy a fair shot at leading the Cleveland Browns this season? Some think the Browns are still trying to trade McCoy. Others think he will be the back-up quarterback. It is almost humorous to think the Cleveland Browns can right the ship with just a quarterback change.
If you look at last season, you have a team that needs much more than a new quarterback. You had a new head coach who had his own problems, you had receivers who couldn’t catch the football and you had an offensive line that at times was very offensive. Mike Holmgren has been in the NFL a long time, he has said on more than one occasion McCoy didn’t really have a fair shot, Holmgren also made the statement, this is the NFL.
It remains to be seen if the Cleveland Browns are going to be fair and give McCoy a shot at starting this year. Some have written the only way McCoy starts is if Weeden would suffer an injury in camp. That kind of thinking shows us the Browns have already in their mind given the starting Q.B. job to Weeden. It will be interesting to see how this thing unfolds for the Cleveland Browns and Colt McCoy. We will see if team president Mike Holmgren is a man of his word.
Tell us if you think The Browns will give McCoy a fair shot this season, leave your comments below……
