Colt McCoy: Browns Head Coach Confident in His New Quarterback
Browns Go Into 2011 Season With McCoy Behind Center
The Cleveland Browns have a had a revolving door at the quarterback position for the last several years, and will go into 2011 with yet another face behind center for Week One.
The Browns did get the playbook to McCoy prior to the lockout, a violation which cost them $50,000. That will be a bargain if the Browns get an edge on the upcoming season because of it.
From The Akron Beacon-Journal:
''I feel like he's got it,'' Shurmur said. ''He makes good decisions. He's an accurate thrower. He's mobile. He's got great command of the huddle. He's a leader. He's a guy that I think can be the guy to lead our organization, so I'm looking forward to getting to work with him.''
McCoy had some really good games last year before getting beat up pretty good at the end of the year.
McCoy's decision-making skills were not in question, just his arm strength and durability. The durability issue is the biggest issue, and McCoy said he still was rehabbing his shoulder injury suffered in the national championship game during last season.
McCoy suffered a high ankle sprain as well, but so did every other quarterback on the roster, so read into that what you will.
The Browns are one of the teams who will be most affected in a negative way due to an extended lockout, but forward thinking and good performances from McCoy will help make the season a good one.
