Is it time to feel bad for Colt McCoy yet? Like so many quarterbacks in Cleveland before him, McCoy has seemingly been given a raw deal, losing his starting job before ever getting a solid opportunity to perform. Despite having an extremely thin receiving corps and little to no help from his running backs last season – not to mention his infamous concussion – McCoy is about to be passed over for the new guy in town, Brandon Weeden.
Is it fair? No, but that’s life in the NFL. The question now seems to be whether or not the Browns will keep McCoy as the backup or simply trade him away for a mid-to-late draft pick. Standing in his way of the backup job is Seneca Wallace, who at times seems miserable in Cleveland.
Fans have seen plenty of both McCoy and Wallace over the course of the last two seasons. Who belongs in the backup role behind Weeden (provided he wins the starting job which, barring injury, he will)?
