View image | As part of TopSportsReport’s series of NFL power rankings articles, we decided that a Quarterback power rankings article would be enjoyable for fans to read as well as enjoyable for a writer to write.  The Quarterback position has become one of the most important positions in the NFL today, as it grew more and more important with the evolution...

Grantland blasts Browns for McCown signing

And here you might have guessed that the Browns would escape scrutiny during free agency when many are critical of the Browns mostly sitting out with their abundance of cap space. Well, you would be wrong. Despite only signing a handful of players including Brian Hartline, the Browns couldn’t skate by thanks to their bidding war victory over the Buffalo Bills for the services of...

Nobody’s safe in the NFL and nothing is sacred

Part of the reason that the signing of Josh McCown was such big news in Cleveland is because it meant the end of Brian Hoyer. As a player, there’s nothing worth talking about with Brian. Even as I’ve supported him as a player, I only did so while acknowledging that in a given year, he could be, at best, a mediocre quarterback. For other fans it went deeper because Brian Hoyer...

Thoughts on the signing of Josh McCown

The Cleveland Browns’ signing of Josh, rhymes-with-brown, McCown has set off another round of eye-rolling, smirking and comments of consternation. I’d like to take a stab at trying to approach it from another direction. Bur first, an anecdote from the 2014 season: After the Browns convincingly defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-10, I took a peek at the Pittsburgh Post Gazette...

How Josh McCown Made Everybody Stupid

Former Bears quarterback Josh McCown has done something that few players have accomplished. He has fooled the entire NFL into thinking he is a good quarterback. Yes, many players are given the opportunity to quarterback an NFL franchise, and some are given one or two chances, but McCown keeps finding starting jobs. What makes his illusion act so impressive is that he is done this...

Buffalo Bills wasting their time on Josh McCown

The Buffalo Bills might only be a quarterback away from contending, which explains why they’re reportedly in talks with free-agent pivot Josh McCown. But the reality is there are much better options out there than a 35-year-old coming off a season in which he posted an abysmal passer rating of 70.5, ranking 32th among the 33 qualified quarterbacks. With 13 touchdown passes and...

Browns reportedly interested in Josh McCown

The one constant we have in a Browns offseason is the everlasting search for a franchise quarterback. Or even an average quarterback, for that matter. We have already had suggestions that owner Jimmy Haslam is open to pursuing a new starter, rumors that a new QB could be had via trade up for Marcus Mariota, reports that the Browns have reached out in an attempt to re-sign Brian...

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have officially announced the release of quarterback Josh McCown less than one year after signing him to a free-agent contract. McCown, who was brought in to compete for the starting gig this past season, earned the job out of training camp. However, the 35-year-old veteran struggled big time. In 11 starts, McCown threw 11 touchdowns compared to 14 interceptions...
