Default McCoy To Start Vs Steelers

Although it's not a surprise, it is now official: Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy will make his NFL debut Sunday for the Cleveland Beowns.
After two days of practices and with two veteran quarterbacks still ailing, McCoy is "definitely" starting against the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-1), a source told ESPN.com Thursday evening. Barring something "extremely unforeseen" those plans won't change, the source said.

Browns (1-4) head coach Eric Mangini told the media this week that he's "leaning" in that direction but has yet to publicly announce McCoy as the starter. But behind closed doors, the Browns informed the rookie third-round pick as early as Monday to get ready to play, because the team didn't anticipate quarterbacks Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace to return from severe ankle sprains. Both veterans missed practice Wednesday and Thursday while McCoy took the first-team reps.

A third-round pick from the University of Texas, McCoy will face a Pittsburgh defense that is ranked No. 4 in the NFL. McCoy is the winningest quarterback in college football history and is known for his accuracy. He went 13-for-13 in his final preseason game for the Browns.

Default Re: McCoy To Start Vs Steelers

Starting your very first game against a Steeler's defense? That's got to be tough.

I like the potential of McCoy, and I don't want to see him develop Carr syndrome. Hopefully, Mangini will know what he's doing and not solely commit to 5 step drop passes. Short/quick passes, screens and running plays should dominate this game.

Default Re: McCoy To Start Vs Steelers

A few weeks ago, many people around here were passionately convinced that Colt McCoy was going to be cut from the Browns. Instead he is going to start an NFL game at QB on Sunday. Way to go Colt.

If he performs well on Sunday, could we have a QB controversy in Cleveland? Stay tuned....

What would be considered performing well in your first game against Pits D? Not seven turnovers?

TB could create a QB controversy against Delhomme, Wallace and Ratliff.

What would ESPN do if McCoy outplays Ben and gets a win? Answer? Have more hours on Brett Favre!

By the end of this game, he likely will need psychological help for Post Traumatic Stress. I suspect it will not be a nice way to start the NFL career.

Where do you come up with this?


Colt played through most of his college career without any injuries while sustaining a ton of huge hits. He played hurt all of the time. He gets knocked out of one huge game against Bama, and now he can't even make it through an NFL game? Please.

And he looked pretty good today considering who he was playing and what he has to throw to.

The stat line for Colt is surprisingly good I'll say.
