In last Friday’s pre-season game against the Lions, Colt McCoy did play better than Brandon Weeden. McCoy threw for more yards and he was the Browns leading rusher. McCoy seemed to be the only quarterback that would help Weeden on the side-lines too. McCoy has shown a lot of class as the Cleveland Browns try to screw him out of his job. When you looked on the side-lines and you see McCoy talking to BW and the coaches trying to spell things out to Weeden he sees it shows how much of a team player McCoy is and how much he wants the Browns to win.

McCoy who went 6 for 8 and 88 yards in the Browns first pre-sesson game and he showed he is ready to play this season. McCoy understands the Browns offense better and it showed. The Browns are going to need a guy that can help Bring Weeden around. That guy may as will be McCoy, besides the way the Cleveland offensive line is playing, they are going to need a few quarterbacks. If Weeden gets hurt they will need a guy to come in who knows what to do. Lots of people will say, McCoy was in there against Detroit’s second string guys. Lets not forget McCoy didn’t have his first string guys with him either.

    Wow. One game and we already know the future of NFL quaterbacks.

    McCoy might even be a very good to great starting QB with time, but he, right now, a GREAT back-up QB. There are lots of reasons but one of the best is that he wants to win, he does everything possible to improve and find ways to win. Look at the way he ran for and passed for 3 additional first downs that were called back by penalties.

    Some fans have complained because McCoy wants to start. I heard a different take on that listening to the Houston broadcast of the Texans’ game. Their backup Yates was playing uninspired and I learned that Kubiak wants a different mindset in his backup. He wants someone who WANTS to start and works to get better and be able to complete at a high level. Apparently, Yates is content to be a backup QB and that shows.

    We’re lucky to have Colt.

    YES they better keep McCoy!!! He played very well Fri night, and showed ALOT of heart….and I must say hes quick on his feet! Weeden, yes we need to see more from…BUT, what I saw Fri doesnt look like a starting Quartback to me!

    Sorry about the duplicate.

    About the O=Line. I noticed the Lions are so deep they have recent first round draft picks playing 2nd string.

    I checked some evaluations of lines in NFL and learned that the Browns have the least depth at O-line of any team. We have a couple of players that are considered good, even an All Pro but without depth and back-ups there’s no way the line can hold up and is the tired players are more likely to get hurt.

    I’d like to see the coaches looking for a couple more players to pick up.

    Good thing we didnt lose there is plenty of negativity with the win because this moron cant see the good things he thrives on his negativity.The Browns will overcome his negativity and make him look like an idiot GO BROWNS KICK SOME ASS

      Nothing negative about stating the facts Rick. I hope I am wrong and Weeden can go out and pass for 350 yards per game with no INT’s but for some reason I don’t think so….

    the game i watched it was 0 to 0 when the starters came out so why are the Browns so bad just saying

      team looks too loose, lots of penalties and they didn’t look like a professional team at all. Hopefully that will change come Thursday in Green Bay….

      Actually the score was 7-0 for the Lions. They scored a touchdown right after they intercepted Weeden’s pass. After that last mistake, Coach Shurmer didn’t send Weeden back in to finish the first quarter as planned.

    I think there is way to much analyzing going on for one single meaningless preseason game especially from this site. I mean “c’mon man“! I’m not talking about this one in particular more less the last couple. After one pre season game I think its embarrassing that anyone would even sit down and try to analyze the game and try to make something out of it. This goes for ESPN as well. Did anyone watch the Cowboys vs. Raiders game last night? Awful wasn’t it, but it doesn’t matter! The Cowboy will be in contention for their division at the end of the season. What about the New England Patriots game a week ago? Tom Brady look horrible, the offense look really bad! The funny thing is, we all know they will be one of the top team in the league. Even when we played the Lions, Stafford threw an interception and didn’t look all that impressive either. And that offense looked terrible too. I guess the point I’m trying to make Is this. With all this horrible, vanilla, rusty, whatever you wanna call it type of offense we’ve seen thus far in the preseason, does it really matter? I mean seriously. Does it really mean that the Patriots aren’t going be in the playoffs? Does it mean that Lions aren’t going to be battling for a playoff spot…hell no it doesn’t. So why are we really putting all this emphasis on one single preseason game? Why are we automatically assuming that Brandon Weeden isn’t ready or that he went for an “awful” 3-9 so that means he automatically should be benched for the season. I think everyone needs to let the preseason play on and stop overreacting to a meaningless preseason game. I even read that people are calling for Pat Shurmurs head after that one preseason game. That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Make these assumptions in week 5 of the regular season. Until then, relax, try to enjoy the preseason and bring on week 1 baby!!!!
