You can say what you want to say about Colt McCoy, but one thing you can’t say is you heard his teammates bashing him the way that Trent Richardson did Weeden when he thought he was off the record. As a matter of fact the Browns weren’t even midway through the season in 2012 when a report surfaced with Josh Cribs saying the Browns would have a better chance to win if McCoy was playing quarterback. As the days go by and the Browns continue to sell Mr. Weeden to the non believers, it is becoming clear that the team made a mistake wasting their second pick in the 2012 draft on a guy that just doesn’t get it.
The fans in Cleveland have grown accustomed to losing football seasons. They have consistently seen a winner on the football field since the team returned to the NFL in 1999. They haven’t seen a starting quarterback that was able to step into the role of starter and lead the team on the field for 3 years in a row. Heck they haven’t seen a coaching staff that could last in Cleveland either. Now the Browns are under new ownership with a new coaching staff that is left to clean up the mess the last group has left on the field. There are still plenty of pieces to the puzzle that need to be put in place before the Browns can turn this team around and become winners.
The one thing that you can say is that Colt McCoy has always had the respect of his teammates. Something that Brandon Weeden is going to have to work for. The 2013 season is going to be a difficult season for the Browns and Weeden, that’s if Weeden is given the chance to play. It was only a matter of time before others came forward and voiced their opinions about Weeden. Now that they are, some still can’t handle the truth.
If the Browns new staff were smart, they would make sure to keep Colt McCoy. You can spin this story any way you want. The truth is McCoy has always had the respect of his teammates.
