Browns vs. Steelers: Cleveland Abandoning Run-Heavy Gameplan, Putting The Pressure on Colt McCoy
With three running backs healthy, many thought that the Cleveland Browns would use a run-heavy gameplan against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, Cleveland has actually mostly put the game in the hands of young quarterback Colt McCoy.
McCoy has not responded the way Cleveland fans would have hoped. Late in the fourth quarter, McCoy has completed 13 of 25 passes for 171 yards and also thrown two interceptions. One of those interceptions was in the endzone as the Browns tried to take the lead.
While not being able to get anything going with their running game may be part of the reason they got away from it, Cleveland also needs to see what McCoy can do. If they are going to make him their quarterback of the future, they need to see what he can do in these late season divisional games.
McCoy has never beat an AFC North opponent in his short career. That is something the Browns need their quarterback to do if they ever want to make the playoffs in the near future.
