The Cleveland Browns management could be to close to the situation to see what the problem is, or am I just making an excuse? Colt McCoy wasn’t the entire problem with the Cleveland Browns last season, of you couldn’t see it tonight you have to be blind. McCoy was the only Browns Quarterback that was able to move the team and put points on the board with a touchdown. McCoy is the only Cleveland quarterback that didn’t turn the ball over. Wallace on his first play in the game threw a poor pass into double coverage only to have it picked off. Anyone who couldn’t see Colt McCoy was the better of the three quarterback that played for the Browns tonight has a serious problem withe their eye sight and they need to have it checked.
It has been clear to see this preseason that Colt McCoy has been the best quarterback the Browns have on their roster. I am not saying Weeden is a terrible quarterback, I am saying Weeden is not ready for prime time yet. The Browns have no way to protect the guy and they should have taken a better offensive lineman in the draft played McCoy this season and then take one of the many top ranked quarterbacks that will be available in the 2013 draft.
Even Tom Heckert sees the improvement in Colt McCoy this season. When asked in his pre-game interview about McCoy showing improvement this season Heckert said they thought McCoy would be a better Q.B. this year. If that is the case why did they take Weeden and try to throw McCoy under the bus. Browns fans know football, they have seen first hand this preseason who the better quarterback is. Yet the excuse will be it is preseason and it doesn’t matter.
If that is the case then why do they cut players off the team in the preseason? Why not let them play two or three games before they get rid of them. The preseason is the matrix that talent has been measured in the NFL for years. This is what teams use to set their rosters and this is when they decide who plays and who the back ups are. This is the time when the Cleveland Browns management should see who their starting quarterback should be. And it shouldn’t be Brandon Weeden.
With out a doubt, Colt McCoy should start the Browns season. If he can’t get it done and the offensive line can get their act together then they should put Weeden in. He simply isn’t the best choice at present……
