Two decent games for the quarterback in the NFL Bumfights Division (one loss, one win), and here we go again re: Colt:
“Colt McCoy has a Bright Future,” goes the headline at Cleveland.com, quoting the Akron Beacon Journal’s Marla Ridenour:
“With six games remaining, there are signs that the Browns might not have to use a coveted draft choice to replace him in April.
“’I think week to week everyone sees that I am slowly getting better,’ McCoy said.”
By everyone Colt at least means the Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot, too:
“McCoy’s getting it: The lights have been coming on for quarterback Colt McCoy over the past two weeks, as he’s been efficient in the West Coast offense. Against the Rams and Jaguars, he’s completed 72.5 percent of his passes, with ratings of 97.5 and 92.2. Those ratings came after McCoy was in the 70s or below six times this season.”
And Coach Shurmur, who amazingly continues to insist that Colt not only did not start eight NFL football games last season (the majori

For weeks, Colt McCoy has taken a pounding, the bumps and bruises seeming to worsen with every Cleveland loss.
On Sunday, the tough, young quarterback and the Browns struck back.
McCoy atoned for a costly interception inside Jacksonville's 20-yard line by throwing a 3-yard touchdown pass to Josh Cribbs in the fourth quarter and Cleveland's defense stopped the Jaguars'...
BEREA, OhioDespite scoring two touchdowns and getting the win over the Jaguars, Pat Shurmur said he's seeing improvement in the offense, in general.
"Generally, we were pretty efficient," Shurmur said. "I thought the line played very well together. It was one of their best games. I think Shawn Lauvao played one of his best games and Tony Pashos did too. I thought...
Quarterback Colt McCoy is the future for the Cleveland Browns.
For the 2011 Cleveland Browns, they will take a win by any means necessary. The path to it doesn’t matter as long as it shows up in the win column. Sunday’s victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars was just that – an occasionally ugly game in which the Browns did everything in their power to try and lose in the end, only to somehow wind up pulling out the victory.Colt McCoy was...
CLEVELAND -- Colt McCoy took a knee on Cleveland's sideline, closed his eyes and the young quarterback asked for some help from above. This week, the Browns got it. "There's nothing wrong with praying," McCoy said.
Some questions heading into today’s game between your 3-6 Cleveland Browns and the 3-6 Jacksonville Jaguars:
- Will this game be worth watching or will I just be angry in a few hours?
- Will the Browns score a touchdown in the first period?
- How about in the third?
- What about simply getting into the endzone in front of their home fans, no matter the quarter? Is that possible...
Cleveland Browns Colt McCoy, Josh Cribbs, Montario Hardesty and head coach Pat Shurmur talked with the media following practice on Wednesday about the five AFC North Division games they play in the next six weeks. The streak begins Sunday with the Cincinnati Bengals in Cincinnati.
Are the Indians making the right move if they bring Grady Sizemore back? Can Colt McCoy and the Browns build off Sunday's win? Plain Dealer sports columnist Terry Pluto answered those questions and more in his weekly podcast.
The Cleveland Browns offense passed the eye test today. That is something that we haven’t been able to say about this team this year. The team was going up against a depleted Jaguars defense that got even more banged up during the game, so save the punch and pie for now. They didn’t blow the roof off the stadium with scoring either. Still, they moved the ball. They...
