Josh McCown is a well-respected player by Browns fans, but he continues to show us all why he has never been a consistent NFL starting quarterback at any point of his career.
McCown was sacked seven times Sunday, and while some may want to immediately blame the offensive line, the veteran quarterback continues to hold onto the ball for far too long. He tries to make big plays when there are no openings, and the team suffers as a result.
The worst play from Sunday’s game came when McCown was hit and politely dropped the ball into the hands of Jason Pierre-Paul for a pick-six. Let the jokes about a man missing fingers return a touchdown against the Browns ensue.
After this latest loss, McCown may lose his starting spot when the Browns take on the Bengals in Week 14. It appears as if Robert Griffin III will be back on the active roster, and Hue Jackson may as well let the opening day starter try to prove himself in the final four games of the season.
McCown was a holdover from the previous front office regime, and his time on the field in Cleveland may have come to an end as he was at the helm for yet another loss.
