Colt McCoy: Mike Holmgren Says McCoy Will Get a Chance to Start
Holmgren Not A Fan Of Equal Reps
The argument over whether Colt McCoy will be the permanent starting quarterback of the Cleveland Browns moving forward continues to have new twists and turns.
While McCoy has been given the go-ahead to be "the guy" on several levels, Team President Mike Holmgren still is hedging his bets.
In a recent interview on Seattle Radio, Holmgren talked about how McCoy is "the guy" for now because he does not like to jerk people around.
From The Cleveland Plain Dealer:
“He’s going to get a chance to do it. I’m not speaking out of school here I’m not a big fan of all of a sudden the equal reps and all that. That usually confuses a lot of people. Things could change once we get rolling a little bit. I suspect that Colt will do a good job. I’ve talked to Seneca about this before the lockout took place. My experience over the years, the guys just want to know and don’t give them curveballs. Are they competitive? Yes. Does it bother them? I’m sure it does, but for right now this is probably how we’re going to go."
The key question with McCoy is his durability. His winning and accuracy are not in question, nor are his leadership abilities. In today’s NFL, McCoy is undersized, and a hit in the 2010 National Championship Game from Marcell Dareus took more than a year to fully heal.
If McCoy can absorb the beating an NFL quarterback takes, the Browns have a solid future ahead of them. If McCoy ends up getting injured again this year, missing a significant amount of time, it is not going to matter how accurate he is or how good his leadership skills are.
Hopefully McCoy is up to the challenge and hopefully the offensive line will keep his hits to a minimum.
The Browns need McCoy and so do the fans.
