First, though, it must be said that the incumbent, Colt McCoy, is the perfect quarterback for the West Coast offense. He lacks size, but he has the short-game accuracy and mobility needed to run it successfully.
The starter’s main focus while running this version of the offense would be to turn and hand the ball off to future superstar running back Trent Richardson. After that it would be to work the play-action passing game with short, accurate throws with the occasional play over the top.
That is McCoy’s game, yes.
But when the Browns chose Weeden with the No. 22 overall pick during last April's NFL draft, they were telling the world the offense is changing.
