I don't see any reason to want to do this. I'd rather wait and draft Keenum if I'm that intent on getting another backup QB.

I like Keenum as a late round draft pick for us...IF Schaub is healthy...

If he's not I'd like someone that has actually played NFL games to play behind TJ or push him in TC...

McCoy is hot garbage.

He's not an NFL QB. And truthfully, the Browns might have just picked another Big 12 QB who also will not translate into an NFL caliber QB.

Do not want. Not even for free.

******************* has to bring up Shipley's to those of us who can't have it!

On a serious note, yes for a late round selection I think it would be worth it to bring in an experienced QB who fits well with what Kubiak looks for at the position. While he might not have a cannon arm, he's got what it takes between the ears to be viable in a system like the one Gary runs.

I would do it. I think he would fit in nicely. Good kid. Knows the NFL already. I say a 6th or 7th.

I dont think CLE wants him even for a QB battle. They need old man Weeden to start now while he doesnt have to use a cane.

Some people are letting their nostalgic memories of Colt in a UT jersey get the best of them.

The guy is tiny, he hasn't done anything, and they've just drafted an old man from the Big 12's new King of Spread Offenses to replace him. Doesn't any of this register with you guys???

I would take TJ Yates every time over Colt McCoy. Every single time.

Colt hasn't been terrible.

Stats: http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/13199/colt-mccoy

I'm talking about taking him as a second or third QB if Schaub isn't healthy. It's not about choosing Yates over him. He'd be a back-up to Yates.

Even in Cleveland without a great set of weapons around him he's done some good things. He's only in his third year and he showed improvement from yr 1 to year 2.

I think at worst here, with Kubiak teaching him and with some pretty good weapons around him he could be a good option if Schaub is hurt and can't go and Yates has to start the season off.


He has NFL experience and is young and has been ok overall.


Not sure why Colt is getting so much flak...

The problem with that is Kubiak can pick a QB in the 5/6/7 rounds that would fit his system exactly and have him under a 4 year guaranteed deal. Trading for McCoy gets you 2 years at minimum money. Is there really that much value in getting McCoy over Kubiak handpicking a guy that he knows will be here for 4 years of Kubes QB College? I don't really see it, unless he's extremely cheap, like next year's 7th or from waivers.

In any case, the Giants are reportedly trying to work a deal to get him for a 6th or 7th.

I think McCoy fits the Texans system pretty good. I have no idea if Kubiak does, but it wouldn't shock me.

And I do think there is more Value in McCoy that has played NFL football in a pretty damn tough division over getting a rookie IF it appears that Schaub can't go.

I'm not against drafting a guy like Keenum at all. I really like Keenum. But if it comes down to it, I'd rather have Keenum sitting and learning whereas if McCoy is pressed into duty I would feel ok, not great with him leading the team.

A known commodity IMO is always more valuable than a late flyer rookie QB. Alex Brink was hand picked by Kubiak. Didnt work out too well. Even with 2 years of Kubes QB College.

I don't think will get another shot at starting in the nfl barring injury.

Considering we only have two QBs ATM, I don't think using a late round pick would be a bad option considering I am still nervous about Schaub really being healthy and ready to go. I like McCoy over Garcia and Delhomme as the 3rd or 4th option.

Right...

Add in that Colt probably played in a tougher defensive division with less weapons around and not as good an offensive system and I'm not sure why he's getting so much flak here...

Say for instance Schaub suddenly had some kind of bizarre unforseeen complication and had to get cut on again, major time missed. I start TJ, pay Delhomme to come back, and still draft Keenum. Keep Leinart's name in my rolodex if he doesn't get picked up.

I honestly don't like any of the decisions the Browns have made so far. They took an RB too high, they took a tier three QB too high, they passed on DeCastro, who was the perfect solution for two major needs (pass protection and run blocking), and they mishandled the communication with McCoy. I would hate to be a Brown's fan.

Seriously, though. They're in the business of obfuscation. I've said this before and I'll say it again, transparency is great for business working in a free-market economy but for a team in a team sport, it's not.

31 other teams are staring at them trying to get some hints and clues as to what they're thinking and what they're trying to do. The FO's job is to be inscrutable and to create smokescreens that cause other teams to misjudge what their actions are going to be.

I don't want my FO being up front and honest. I don't want them to tell me what they're thinking and what they're planning on doing. I don't want them to give me an injury report that's 100% accurate.

One report said the Texans were trying to trade Jones to Cleveland for quarterback Colt McCoy. A deal like that would make sense. The Browns need more offensive weapons for first-round pick Brandon Weeden. They selected running back Trent Richardson in the first round, and now they need to bolster their receivers.

If McCoy had been OK overall, the Browns wouldn't be replacing him. A good college QB whose skills weren't transferable to the pros. There's not a single good reason tio trade for McCoy. The Texans could not win with him at QB. I agree that the Texans need to find a vet to backup Schaub and Yates. McCoy isn't the answer.

Also, no on Vince Young. Before the other Horn fans start asking.

before keenum, i certainly would've traded for colt. despite the void of talent around him (no line, no runningbacks, no receivers, no tightends), colt's more than proven himself to be a capable pro quarterback IMO. a positive TD/INT should be impossible on the team he's been on, but yet he squeaked out 14/11. the only players he's had is an oversized dante hall and an injured diva at runningback. with an offense like the texans', i could definitely see him having a ton of success.

The browns are bringing in a guy to be a starter. McCoy would have been a back up here. That's what players who are ok should be.

And it's absolutely ridiculous to say we couldn't win games with McCoy at qb. We won games with Yates, With a lot more help around him than McCoy has/had.

There were reports that three teams attempted to trade for McCoy including the texans.

Giants and packers were the other two.

Browns ended up deciding to keep him at this point. Not sure how you come to your conclusions.

And I like Yates a lot, but I don't know if McCoy would have been better here. He's in a division against three tough defenses plus he doesn't have a whole lot around him plus their offensive system doesn't seem like it's all that.

Give McCoy a shot here and I think he'd have done better.

If the Browns are actively seeking a trade for McCoy, and 3 teams have made an offer not deemed good enough, surely that would lead you to believe that none had offered anything of any value, and that nobody is likely to.

The only problem I have with bringing in a vet backup at this point is how that would affect TJ, if you tell a guy in TJ's position that he's your guy in waiting, your #2 for now and if he works hard he'll eventually become your #1, maybe you get more out of him than if you pile on the pressure for him to just keep his #2 spot. Confidence is a big thing, especially when you're asking someone to wait.

I'm not even sure how much better McCoy, or anyone available, is going to be than whats available off the street mid-season if it does come down to that, that they didn't even seem to consider Delhomme to start should tell you everything you need to know about the chances of using anyone else.

We also may get someone who's going to make a real contribution in spot duty/ST's with the money we'd give up for a guy like McCoy. I'd stand pat and maybe see if someone like Garcia, Sexy Rexy, Rosenfelds wants to come in as a camp arm to help nurture our young'uns.

Ok...

So if someone is shopping a top ten pick and no offer has been deemed good enough, surely that would lead you to believe no one had offered anything of value.

Absolutely not.

What it means is that the team that holds the asset values him/it more than what they'd be getting in return.

I don't understand you guys logic at all. The fact that three teams are inquiring about trading for a guy/pick/whatever seems to indicate that they place some kind of value on him. You don't trade for things you don't see value in. Makes 0 sense. And then for the team that owns the rights to said asset to say we don't want to trade him seems to provide even further proof that the guy has value beyond "nothing".


Why would you turn down "something" for "nothing"?

If "something" was Jacoby Jones. Whats his trade value a few days after the Browns were offered him in a trade for McCoy? Oh yeh, nothing, he's a street FA.

So you might believe that the Packers were offering a 3rd rounder, and the Giants 2 4th's, but they both have top 10 QB's with good injury history, so I struggle to believe they are interested in trading away anything more than a 6th/7th/player of similar level to JJ for a backup QB at most.

The other 29 teams didn't even feel like they wanted to offer a Jacoby, The Browns clearly want to remove this guy from their team to avoid a controversy, leading me to believe that they haven't received an offer of a draft pick anywhere near the top 100 in return. JMO.

So I guess we can expect to see McCoy cut and on the street like Jacoby following your logic...

Obviously McCoy is worth something to someone because there were supposedly three teams trying to trade for him and 1 team that decided to keep him.

I disagree with about everything you've said here.

We don't even know if Jacoby by himself was offered. It could have been Jacoby + something...

But instead of addressing the actual football stuff I've posted with regards to McCoy like the division he plays in and the lack of weapons he has on the offense, you keep making up this stuff about what you think his value is...Which I believe is wrong anyways.

Mate, I addressed a portion of the post you made, which I quoted, feel free to disagree with me, thats what a forum is here for, I haven't addressed you on the football side of things because I don't see too much to add to it.

Yeh, McCoy is in a horrible situation in Cleveland, not only is he in a terrible QB-killer system in a QB-killer city, with little talent to help him out and poor coaching, he's just had his replacement drafted and is being publicly shopped around the league and seemingly may end up sticking around...ouch.

Would he look better in our system? Of course he would, Kubiak is a great OC, who seems capable of maximising a QB's potential and we've got some pretty good talent to put around him. At the same time, he'd look better right up until early September at which point he'd just be wearing a different uni on the sideline, and he wouldn't be as cold in December.

Thats why Smithiak isn't willing to offer anything 'of value' for him, and why GB & NYG aren't either. Clearly other teams aren't offering anything at all.

In a discussion entitled "Would you trade for Colt McCoy?" I'd personally say a discussion of his value is more than reasonable, I'd certainly expect our front office to think about his value before they made a trade offer. I wasn't attacking you dude so chill out.

From what I heard Cleveland wasn't shopping him. Teams assumed he was available and made offers for him based on the Browns taking Weeden.

Thats why Smithiak isn't willing to offer anything 'of value' for him, and why GB & NYG aren't either. Clearly other teams aren't offering anything at all.

Again, your logic doesn't make any sense and the Texans obviously disagree with you. You're making a lot of assumptions about why Jacoby was released. Eric Winson was released and was a free agent for a while...

I guess he had no worth either?

I'm not hyped up, I'm actually pretty chill.

If they attempted to trade for him then obviously they saw some value in him. Not really even sure what you're arguing here.

What value would you place on him out of interest? We've seen the 'Skins for instance draft a clear backup in the early 4th of late, I'm not even sure what the upper limit is on backup QB's?

6th rounder, maybe 5th depending on how I felt.

But if the texans feel like schaub will be back, then I wouldn't make the trade. I think McCoy would be a good back up to Yates if Yates were the starter this season. Not that I Dint like Keenum, because I do.

On Colt McCoy: I’ve been told that McCoy’s fate as a former starter was sealed when his father sounded off about the club’s handling of his concussion in the Pittsburgh game on Dec. 8.

I was told at the time that Brad McCoy’s comments meant the end of McCoy in Cleveland, but I didn’t believe it then.

The comments did not drive the pursuit of a new quarterback, but I believe they contributed to McCoy’s demise.

I will have more to say about McCoy’s rather stunning demise at a later date.

The above referenced statement by Colt's father:
The next day, Colt’s father, Brad McCoy, made national headlines when he told the PD’s Mary Kay Cabot that his son had no business being out back into the game:
“I talked to Colt this morning and he said ‘dad, I don’t know what happened,” Brad McCoy said.

“He never should’ve gone back in the game. He was basically out (cold) after the hit. You could tell by the ridigity of his body as he was laying there. There were a lot of easy symptoms that should’ve told them he had a concussion. He was nauseated and he didn’t know who he was. From what I could see, they didn’t test him for a concussion on the sidelines. They looked at his (left) hand.”

“After the game, the (public relations staff) made sure Colt’s interview was brief and he couldn’t face the lights in his press conference,” said Brad. “The TV lights and the Stadium lights were killing him. Why would you say he was fine? That makes it even worse.”
