Colt McCoy is likely getting traded. The best team for McCoy would be the Saints (he could study behind short, average-armed Drew Brees) if Chase Daniel had not spent so much time in the thick playbook.
The Browns don’t even want him as #2, so they’ll trade him even though Oakland, San Francisco, Carolina and the New York Jets are the only places he could win #2.
The Packers’ Graham Harrell, Broncos’ Adam Weber, and Ravens’ Tyrod Taylor all do at least one thing much better than Colt McCoy, which is why Colt wouldn’t beat them out.
Graham Harrell anticipates and reads progressions are better than Colt McCoy’s. Adam Weber’s skill set is in general better than that of Colt’s. Most importantly, he can read a defense better and has quicker release. Tyrod Taylor’s velocity on stick throws, velocity and location on deep balls is why he’s better than McCoy right now. Colt’s leadership, hard work, and experience make him worth a 6th. The problem with the Eagles is that Shurmur will likely be honest with Reid, and that could be a critical assessment of McCoy.
With Brandon Weeden getting the first team snaps during OTAs, a Fake ESPN Twitter account said Colt had been traded.
His brother Case McCoy – a quarterback at Texas – took to Twitter to defend him and rip the Browns.
“Good luck Brandon [Weeden]! Fan of you, but my brother’s pulling the lucky straw on this one! Cleveland is only going downhill!”
“Fake ESPN accounts are nuts… Got me fired up over nothing! Still kinda meant what I said.”
“Want to apologize for my tweet last night. It was definitely uncalled for and not at all what I stand for! Blood just runs deeper than sport colors. I’m thankful to be playing the sport I love. But with that comes responsibility and I didn’t handle that well last night.”
