From Larry Brown Sports:

Case McCoy, the brother of Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy, ripped his brother's team via Twitter on Friday in response to a fake trade rumor.

Case, who is a quarterback at the University of Texas, apparently had been duped by a fake ESPN Twitter account that said his brother had been traded to the Eagles. He sent the following tweet, which has since been deleted:

Brandon was a reference to quarterback Brandon Weeden, who was drafted by the team in the first round this year. Weeden is expected to replace McCoy as Cleveland's starter.

It didn't take long for Case McCoy to realize he made a mistake.

Case then spent some time on Saturday apologizing for his negative comments about the Browns.

That trade report may have been false, but one has to figure it might not be long before McCoy really is traded by the team. After all, this isn't the first time one of McCoy's family members criticized the team, and the Browns reportedly aren't happy about it.

  • I think Case will be joining Colt, Brady Quinn, Ochocinco and TO in the Arena Football League...if any of them are lucky!! Why do players that don't produce and whine too much, still feel entitled to play?
  • Oops, commence inserting foot in mouth, then spending the next day trying to pull it back out again. Only problem, everyone now knows that he stuck his foot in his mouth and now has to do mad ad libs to "try to look good" after having done it :o
  • Nothing like having a brother who loves you. Sorry fot the error but I applaud the kid sticking up for his brother.
  • I don't remember who said it, but a Twitter account is like having a loaded gun on the nightstand. And dumba$$ after dumba$$ keeps pointing and pulling the trigger. Duh!
  • Nice thing he is trying to stand up for his brother...but he should really be working on being a better QB and focusing on David Ash, instead of worrying about what is being said on twitter or other social media sites...Colt is a big boy and can take care of himself...you need to focus on the Horns!
  • If it wasn't Colt it would be someone else. Cleveland has had numerous q-backs in the last 10 years and have either destroyed them or they have not met expectations due to management , coaching and just having a bad team, either no ability to run, or pass block or play defense. But go ahead Cleveland keep looking for anouther q-back. For Colt getting traded is the best thing for him. He will get anouther chance to play!!

Browns Willing To Deal Colt McCoy

After drafting quarterback Brandon Weeden out of Oklahoma State in the first round of April’s draft, it appears the Cleveland Browns are willing to deal previous starter Colt McCoy relatively cheap.

Case McCoy is currently a quarterback at the University of Texas, just as his older brother Colt once was.  Of course, Colt McCoy has moved onto the NFL where he has been the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns for the last couple seasons.  Nevertheless, Colt McCoy's time in Cleveland appears to be numbered with the Browns selecting Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden...

Might The Eagles Trade For Colt McCoy?

Over the weekend, we talked a bit about Michael Vick‘s future in Philadelphia. Our general conclusion was that his future here actually seems quite secure given the lack of an heir apparent. Unless Mike Kafka lights it up in preseason, there’s really not a QB on this roster other than Vick that right now looks like a viable NFL starter. Like I said over the weekend, there’s...
