Jimmy Haslam is rumored to really like Colt McCoy. He says the kid has a lot of heart. The source of this rumor went on to tell me that Haslam really liked the way McCoy came into his first game in the NFL and competed against the Pittsburgh Steelers when he made his first start in week six of the 2010 season taking over for injured Browns quarterbacks Jake Delhomme and back-up Seneca Wallace. McCoy didn’t win that game but he did show he could compete in the NFL.
Haslam who also follows college football is rumored to have watched McCoy’s career at Texas. My source tells me Haslam was impressed with McCoy’s 158.25 Q.B. rating following his 2009 season with the Texas Longhorns. Supposedly Haslam was saddened by the fact McCoy had to leave the 2010 BCS National Championship Game against Alabama during the first quarter with a right shoulder injury and was sidelined for the rest of the game. I guess Haslam really wanted to see McCoy finish that game after he led the Longhorns to a perfect 12–0 regular season record. Interesting, I wonder if the boys in Cleveland who run the Browns are aware of these rumors?
