Cleveland-browns
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 no Kevin Kolb waiting in the wings. Kolb was taken at the top of the second round, had a couple good games starting in the leauge… There was at least some reason to believe he could be an heir apparent. In fact, the Eagles actually decided to move on from Donovan McNabb because they believed in Kolb. This leads us to Colt McCoy. It’s been reported that the Browns are shopping McCoy for “minimal compensation.” Might the Eagles be interested? McCoy was a third round pick in 2010 and has started 25 games over his first two seasons in the league. He hasn’t been particularly good, but he is still young, he didn’t have...

5 Teams Likely To Trade For Colt McCoy

Let’s face facts; Colt McCoy will be traded sooner than later. The Browns want very little compensation for him and there is something of a market for him. His departure out of Cleveland is so assured that I thought twice about writing this list because I’m not sure I can get it up fast enough before the deal is done. So with that said, one of these five teams will probably...

King: I think the Browns should hang onto Colt McCoy, But…

In his most recent Monday Morning Quarterback Column, Sports Illustrated’s Peter King (once again) weighs in on the Colt McCoy situation in Cleveland, this time, giving the third-year quarterback a vote of confidence. “I think the Browns should hang onto Colt McCoy,” writes King. ”I do like Brandon Weeden, but how sure a thing is he? And if he plays poorly over the next...

The jury remains out as to whether or not McCoy...

Colt McCoy’s brother rips Browns after falling for fake trade report

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

He sent the following tweet, which has since been deleted: Brandon...

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. It’s not so much that the Browns aren’t sensitive to the fact that McCoy has already endured a difficult situation in Cleveland, but rather that they’re looking to start Weeden...

Whoops! Colt McCoy’s brother spouts off about Browns after being duped by fake Twitter account

Admit it, you have seen a few Tweets from @AdarnSchefter or @rnortreport and thought they were the real deal. The font on Twitter can be deceiving at times.

Philadelphia Eagles unlikely to trade for QB Colt McCoy

Colt McCoy sings onstage with Brad Paisley

It’s official, Colt McCoy sings like he plays quarterback! Brad Paisley recently performed in Ohio and pulled Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy onstage to help him sing “I’m Still a Guy“.

Case McCoy blasts Browns after fake report that brother Colt had been traded

It’s no secret that Colt McCoy, the incumbent starter for the Cleveland Browns, can be had in a trade. The Browns drafted Brandon Weeden in the 1st round of the 2012 NFL Draft to replace the mediocre McCoy and immediately shopped him on draft day with no results. They have reportedly lowered their asking price and will accept “minimal compensation” in order to give McCoy ...

I Love Being Right

A month ago, I was scorched by a burning river of Browns fans for saying that Greg Little disappointed and Colt McCoy had no weapons. The insults and expletives grunted into cyberspace by these Dawg-crazed nuts barked that the blame for the team’s meager passing game rested squarely and solely on Colt McCoy. He (called “hot dumpster water” by one fan) was the team’s only...

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...
