Colt McCoy Cleveland Browns quarterback knows his team needs to get off to a quicker start. The only Browns score in the first five games of the 2011 season has been a 48 yard field goal by Phil Dawson. McCoy knows this isn’t getting it done. The Cleveland Browns have to find some offense that allows the team to get into the end zone offensively. The Browns have been able to move the ball between the 30′s however punching their offense into the end zone has been a real problem.
The Cleveland Browns have been outscored in the first quarter this season 34-3, however they have held the advantage in the second quarter 45-33 this season. The Browns just haven’t been able to get it done and Colt McCoy as the Browns quarterback has come into question lately. McCoy who had one of the winning-est records in his college career is certainly showing signs of a struggle in his second year with the Browns. To be fair to McCoy the NFL lockout and the shortened training camp may have contributed to the problems McCoy and his Browns have been faced with.
Not only have the Browns had a host of new young players join the team this season they were also faced with a new coach and a entirely new offense switching to the west coast offense. It’s an awful lot to learn in a short period of time. I think McCoy is the type of player that is going to get the job done. This young guy seems to lead on the field and he just needs a little help from his players. McCoy has been faced with lots of dropped passes and an offensive line that hasn’t played that well as of yet.
“When you kind of beat yourself up and slow yourself down by messing up on little things, that’s when you kind of get out of rhythm and all of a sudden, it’s third-and-long and you’re off the field,” McCoy said. “That’s the frustrating part.” McCoy’s Browns have got to keep from messing up the little things. If they can get that right the team will have a chance at winning…..
