McCoy, as expected, will make CLE squad

C. McCoy will get plenty of playing time in Cleveland's final preseason game of the year (AP). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Remember how we talked last week about how it was unfathomable that Browns rookie QB Colt McCoy was actually in danger of being whacked from Cleveland’s roster? He is, after all, a third-round pick, and from the looks of things, the Browns quarterback of the future.

Well, the Cleveland Plain Dealer now has made it clear that the team has assured McCoy that he will make the squad, and to celebrate, he’ll get plenty of playing time against the Bears on Thursday night.

Still, it would behoove McCoy – who is 15 of 26 for 101 yards with no TDs, two INTs and an extremely unimpressive quarterback rating of 34.3 so far in the preseason – to show some skills.

“I’m excited to play," McCoy told the newspaper. "I’m really looking forward to it. To be able to know you’re going to go into a game and play a good bit of time, it’s going to be fun. When you’re on the field awhile, you can kind of get in synch, get in the flow. At least I hope to."

For the time being, McCoy is nothing but a third quarterback for Cleveland, behind the surprisingly solid Jake Delhomme and backup Seneca Wallace. All McCoy cares about for now is improvement.

“That’s the mentality I have every day before I go to practice," McCoy said. "I make sure I’m working on something that’s going to make me better today than I was yesterday. Obviously I’ve got really high expectations for myself, so do a lot of people on this team, my coaches and probably outside of here. I’d like to go out there and play the best I can and get something going offensively that we can put on tape and be proud of."

McCoy, as expected, will make CLE squad

Why would the Browns go and waste a first round pick next season on a quarterback when some thought Colt McCoy could've been a first round pick? Not to mention Jake Delhomme is the starter with Seneca Wallace a close second, so they knew he would sit on the roster and develop behind these guys before starting. I'd like to pose you another question:When has any Brown's qb showed the skills to be a successful qb in this league? Listen to this list of guys:
Tim Couch 22 wins 37 losses
Derek Anderson 16 wins 18 losses
Charlie Frye 6 wins 13 losses
Kelly Holcomb 4 wins 8 losses
Trent Dilfer 4 wins 7 losses
Jeff Garcia 3 wins 7 losses
Brady Quinn 3 wins 9 losses
Luke McCown 0 wins 4 losses
Ken Dorsey 0 wins 3 losses
even the more well known qbs over their time::
Bernie Kosar 53 wins 51 losses
Brian Sipe 57 wins 55 losses
Vinny Testeverde 16 wins 15 losses

Need I continue? Honestly if you're a Browns fan out there be glad they didn't waste another 1st round pick on future trade bait. Brady Quinn, Kamerion Wimbley, Braylon Edwards, Kellen Winslow Jr. all traded away. They instead spent a 3rd round pick on one of the quarterbacks who has a shot at becoming a solid starting qb in the NFL. Yes he'll need sometime to learn the offense and get acclimated but that's why he's the 3rd string qb for now.

McCoy, as expected, will make CLE squad

I got some news for you.  I think Colt McCoy can be a fine QB, if he can stay healthy.  AS shown in the NCAA title game, he has shwon to be injury prone.  He is so much better than Delhomme.  Delhomme will go down in the books as the most inconsistent QB's of all-time.  The only reason why Carolina even got to the SB was that everyone else was napping.  I wish the 49ers had gotten a late draft choice on him instead of keeping that bozo Alex Smith.  You want to talk about a bust.  He was the number 1 drafted player in the 2005 draft.  Since his arrival in SF, he has been nothing but dog turds.  Yet, the 49ers decide to keep him as their starting QB.  By now, he should be at least a top 10 fantasy QB with all the weapons he has.   He is the only reason why the 49ers will not win a SB.  If they had Colt McCoy, it's possible for them to even be a bigger contender with the monster running game, defense, and coach that they have.

While I Agree that he will make the final roster i would not call him the Browns QB of the future  . He has not shown those qualities . not even close  to showing that he is the QB Of the future .next years draft is loaded at the top according to the so called  experts . i look for the Browns to spend a high first round pick on Jake Locker or one of the other high rated prospects in next years draft . in Holmgren we trust .
