Default Colt McCoy may be waived

The shotgun spread offense doesn't really translate to the pro's - http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shu...urn=nfl-265084

This is a shock to me.

I think Colt McCoy is going to develop into a very good NFL QB. And I think Cleveland is the place for him to do it.

It won't be a shock to me at all. I've said since Colt's Junior season that I didn't see him ever being a NFL QB. He doesn't seem tall enough and his arm isn't strong enough to me either. People like to site Drew Brees every time this discussion comes up, but Brees is more of an exception as far as his height goes than the ladder. I hope I'm wrong, because I'm a huge Colt fan, but I just don't see him as an NFL QB. Not as a starter anywhere.

With our TEs, Walter and Rbs he would not need a strong arm. I'd sign him.

If nothing else, it could distract the Houston love for another former UT QB

The only reason this makes sense is if the Browns really want Locker or Mallet next year

Delhomme and Wallace are not permenant solutions

How would wanting Locker or Mallet (or maybe Luck) next year cause getting rid of Colt this year to make sense?

They took him as a QB for the future, with Delhomme keeping the seat warm. If they lost faith in Colt or fell in love with a top pick, it makes sense

It seems to me that if they need a QB of the future that badly, that actually makes it dumber to get rid of him now. You've got a 1 year free no/risk look at what he might become. If you're right - cut him in a year with perhaps slightly less egg on your face, and have the ability to go after one of those two (or three) anyway. If he proves you wrong, you've still got him.

No, I think Colt is hoping for the practice squad. I'm not surprised at all that he is on the bubble. He was a good College QB and I never could see him on the NFL level. He won't be the first big name college QB to lay a egg on the next level. I Never thought Colt had "it".

This can't be true. I just can't imagine a team just giving up and waiving a 3rd (4th? I forget which round he went) round QB who was going to be a project to begin with. It is the Browns though, so who knows.

Default Re: Colt McCoy may be waived

If this happens, then just wow. Its all speculation at the moment, but I'd be shocked if the Browns ditched Colt before the season opener.

This could turn out to be a pretty good example for what can happen to a QB for not choosing to go into the draft early. I'm not sure he would have fallen to the 3rd round if he'd came out after the junior season.

Either way, I hope he at least gets a shot at some game time with a team. If not, we'll have him up here in Canada to replace Casey Printers for the BC Lions!

Colt will never be a long term starter anywhere, and I've said that since his Junior season and keep in mind I'm a huge Longhorns and Colt McCoy fan. Most Longhorn fans analyze him as a guy with all this potential because they "want" him to do well, but haven't considered the fact that QB's his size and height hardly ever make it in the league these days and most coaches hate QB's his height whether they're good or not. Most of them don't get much of a chance.

Colt's got a lack of arm strength for the NFL, he's got a lack of height, and he's got a small frame. He'll be a back up and nothing more in the NFL and I doubt that he'll even be a back up for more than 3 seasons. Every time someone mentions these things people like to scream out Drew Brees, Drew Brees like he's comparable, but that's just nuts to me. Colt McCoy is no Drew Brees. He was your typical guy that was perfect for the college game just like Matt Heipel was for Oklahoma when he won the Heisman and the National Championship.
