Michael Lombardi the Browns new General Manager couldn’t believe the Browns would stick with Brandon Weeden, even though the team had a better chance to win with Colt McCoy. The interesting thing will be to see what happens in the 2013 season. McCoy who is still with the Browns could have a chance to start over Brandon Weeden. Lombardi thought McCoy had a much higher football I.Q. than Weeden and he felt McCoy could win when Weeden was losing.
I think Michael Lombardi and the rest of the Browns staff are willing to see what Colt McCoy can do. They didn’t like the things Weeden was doing last season and they haven’t seen what McCoy can do with some good coaching. Many remember the great days McCoy had in College and they think he got screwed by Holmgren and Shurmur. Even Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has a great deal of respect for Colt McCoy. Haslam is a big fan of college football and remembers the great things McCoy did in Texas.
For people to think that Colt is not going to get a fair chance this summer to regain his spot as the Browns starting quarterback they are sadly mistaken. Colt McCoy is going to be given every chance he can get to be the Browns starting Q.B. in the 2013 season. Lombardi already thought McCoy could win with the Browns over Brandon Weeden.
