Last week when the Cleveland Browns put McCoy into the game to replace the injured Weeden, the team was able to move the ball down the field and finally score a touchdown, something they haven’t done in almost 3 quarters of play with Weeden leading the Browns. In his post game press conference McCoy was asked if he was going to be the starting quarterback in Pittsburgh, his answer was, “it was a bit early because they didn’t know the extent of the Weeden injury but he was ready to strap it up”. There was no mention of any shoulder injury or did Colt McCoy look as though he was in any pain.
Then we find out that Thad Lewis is going to start the game against the Pittsburgh Steerlers. Now I know that some of you may think I am nuts, the fact is I really don’t think Pat Shurmur likes Colt McCoy. I think he would do what he could to try and stop McCoy from starting a football game in order to protect himself from being firther exposed as an idiot. It was Shurmur that handed the starting quarterback role to Brandon Weeden when it was clear that McCoy looked better than Weeden in the preseason.
Now we have a head coach who says the Cleveland Browns came into the 2012 season at a serious disadvantage. What was that? Is it the fact the Browns are coached by Shurmur? I mean this Browns team had a lot of talent this season. The problem is due to the poor choices made by the head coach. We are going into week 17 and the Browns have not used Brandon Jackson at all. Why not? We all saw how explosive he could be in the preseason. We all saw he could catch the ball coming out of the back field and make people miss.
It would not surprise me a bit if McCoy is being held out of the last game of the season so Shurmur doesn’t look any more foolish than he already does. Imagine if Colt McCoy would come into the game and have no problem moving the team down the field and finding the end-zone. Shurmur has got to go. This guy is the disadvantage he is talking about coming into the season.
Thad Lewis is a guy that Pat Shumur brought with him from St. Louis and I think this is why we are seeing him start against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
