Here we go again, the Cleveland Browns rumors are flying around and people are already saying that Colt McCoy is going to be cut from the Cleveland Browns. The guy never had a chance. The Cleveland Browns football team has been in complete disarray since returning to the NFL in 1999. McCoy was forced to become the Browns starter before he was ready. What did he do? He competitive against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he did beat the New Orleans Saints and the New England Patriots.
The Patriots only lost 2 games in the 2010 season, one of them is a lose to the Cleveland Browns with Colt McCoy starting at Q.B. The Saints went 11-5 that year, McCoy was the starter in that game too. People keep coming up with the excuse, McCoy doesn’t have a strong-arm. These are people don’t know football. McCoy came into the NFL with a shoulder injury he suffered in the BCS title game that he led Texas too.
If you watched the zip on McCoy’s throws last season, you had to notice he was throwing the ball harder than he was in earlier years. McCoy can bring a couple of other things to the field that Brandon Weeden can’t .
His football I.Q. and his ability to make something happen out of nothing. McCoy isn’t afraid of taking a hit. This kid has the heart of a warrior. he can scramble with the best of them. People are quick to point out how bad Manning did his rookie year. Let me point something out to you. Drew Brees had some bad years.
McCoy is a Brees type of player. he can run all over the field and throw the ball on the run too. Just watch the video below and tell me this kid can’t play quarterback. Put some play makers around this kid, give him a chance to compete and I think the Browns can win more games. His arm may not be as strong as Weeden’s but he is a lot smarter and a lot more accurate too.
The Cleveland Browns have to make sure they avoid making the same mistake the Chargers did when they let Brees get away. Watch this video and see what this kid can do. He is a play-maker…..
