So the news coming from Cleveland is that rookie quarterback Colt McCoy is going to make his first start against the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday. Man, I don't usually say this kind of thing, but I sense an ass-whooping.

I never thought much of Colt McCoy in college. He played for a few overhyped Texas teams who never had to deal with much defense in the Big 12 conference. All of those games were typically shootouts.

Was it any shock that NFL teams didn't put a lot of stock into him other than that disaster of a football franchise, the Cleveland Browns?

Even they passed him over a few times before taking him in the third round. Hey at least he doesn't have to worry about being called a first-round bust!

To add insult to injury on what they thought of the kid, rumor had it they nearly cut him during training camp. When you can't even beat out the has-beens and never-was quarterbacks that wear a Browns jersey, what does that say about you?

I see this game getting hideously ugly for the Browns quickly. Ben Roethlisberger is back and ready to prove something to his teammates who he let down by getting suspended four games for his off-the-field antics.

The defense is eager to redeem themselves for letting the Ravens score in the closing seconds of the game two weeks ago.

I hope McCoy signed up for extra life insurance because he's got a wife at home to think about.

The Voice Says...Steelers win by 20.
