Colt McCoy is Likely to Start on Sunday Against the Patriots

Quarterback Seneca Wallace was hoping to return this week from a high ankle sprain, but by not practicing, it leaves the door open for rookie Colt McCoy to make his third-straight start against the New England Patriots. If McCoy does play on Sunday, his first three games will have been against the Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints, and New England Patriots. Kind of makes you anxious to see how he does against the Buffalo Bills of the world, doesn’t it?

I can’t imagine that too many people are opposed to the idea of Colt McCoy starting on Sunday, though I think fans are fighting that urge to simply say that McCoy should be the starter for the rest of the season to “see what we have” in him. Or are they? Am I the only one who is hesitant to simply hand the reins over to McCoy based on how that has worked out for the Browns in the past?

    This should have been a no-brainer. No debate was required whatsoever. You have a rookie who came in under unenviable circumstances in his first game and played fairly well and then beat the Super Bowl Champions on the road the following week. His passer rating against two good defenses is higher than Anderson and Brady ever were last season. Delhomme is not 100 per cent. Neither is Wallace. What is the issue?

    Look at the respect the Browns are getting in terms of Vegas betting lines (yes – I like to gamble). Several casinos have the Pats favoured by 4.5 points or less. Considering that New England has lost one game this year, that is surprising.

    Go Browns! Kill another giant this week.
