you guys have no idea about colt. when i was a rushee i was slamming brew with that mother $#@!er.. now im the $#@!ing rush chair. Omicron bitches.
His "fragility" had nothing to do with getting concussed by that Harrison hit.
hes as a fragile as my whiskey $#@!
I still have trouble trying to understand how do you really evaluate any QB when they spend so much time running for their life? With Weedon in there it is just going to get worse. He does get the help of a SECSECSEC running back, but after a half season of getting his $#@! pushed he will tell Weedon to keep the $#@!ing ball.
So the staff will continue to have to endure the nightly phone calls from DaddyBrad, as they were too weak to push baby bird Case from the nest? Shame.
Lol.. The guy who won 45 games in college and owns the winningest record for a QB at a BCS school is fragile?
Give me a $#@!ing break.
The reason he looks fragile in the NFL is because his O-line sucks $#@!. Not even Cam Newton could withstand as many hits as Colt took the past 2 years and not get injured.
We just had a former player commit suicide over what some to believe was depression caused through concussions, yet some people think Brad McCoy shouldve stayed quiet about his son getting put BACK into the game with a severe concussion? Wtf am I reading?
Colt getting put back into that game couldve $#@!ing killed him. Im not sure how some of these idiots dont see how dangerous that is. Cleveland is a $#@!ing $#@!hole.

Insulting an entire state is also pretty childish/ignorant.

I don't blame Brad McCoy one bit for taking care of family. The Browns sure weren't doing it.
Cleveland Browns = new Detroit Lions?
as far as front office ineptitude
CLEVELAND -- Browns President Mike Holmgren elaborated today on ESPN's Mike and Mike, with the show airing live from Progressive Field, about the organization's decision to make rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden compete with Colt McCoy and Seneca Wallace for the starting quarterback job.
"It's going to be interesting to say the least,'' he said. "They're all at the facility right now (Weeden won't be in town until Thursday and rookie camp starts Friday) in the offseason program working like crazy, they're all good guys and they understand the competitive situation they're in. Do they have to like it? I'm not asking them to like it necessarily, but they've handled it very, very well like I thought they would.
"We'll see and I told Weeden, I've never had a player who we were going to draft, as a coach or in my current role, sit in my office prior to the draft and say 'if we pick you, you're the starter. I've never said that. I don't think it's the right thing to say, because if they're not the starter, then they feel you've lied to them and been dishonest, so I'm not going to do that.
"But they're going to compete. Because of his age, you kind of think 'okay, (Weeden) can't sit and watch for two or three years, that doesn't make any sense. But he's got to prove it. He has to prove it like every other player we have and that's how we're approaching it. And then what happens down the road on a trade or who we go to camp with, that will play out, I think. We're not forcing that at all.''
He also further his explained his thinking about taking Weeden at No. 22 after Baylor's Kendall Wright went off the board at No. 20.
"We were trying to have our cake and eat it too at the start of it. We wanted everything,'' he said. "And to get everything, we thought we could get a wide receiver with the 22nd pick. Then, when we decided we wanted Weeden, what does this mean? We had the pick No. 37. You could make a case that none of those teams between 22 and 37 really needed a quarterback his age that would have to come in and probably play right away.
"What you can't ever factor in is someone hopping in there, so that was a concern. But it was answered for us because Wright went (at 20). Once the receiver was taken, then I said, 'look if we're committed -- and we were thinking about even moving up from 37, let's take him now.' Take him now, it's done, he's the quarterback, and then we don't have to worry about it and that's what happened.''
He also addressed the new league guidelines on dealing with gameday concussions.
"We lived through a much-publicized play with Colt McCoy last year,'' he said. "The new rules that are being implemented will help, some people watching, some cameras on the field to alert the doctors so they have more information, and as long as we keep talking about it, we can help in that area, because no one wants to put a guy out there at risk.''
As for the league being too overprotective about it, he said, "I think there's a chance because so much has been mentioned about it. But you err on the side of caution I suppose and now the rule (is), if they even think if he got his bell rung just a little bit, they take him off the field and take him inside. Right away you lose the player for awhile. While inside, they're going to give a series of tests which takes some time, and if you can't pass those tests, he doesn't come back out.''
He also said he spoke to owners and coaches at the league meetings about the decision-makers going back to their teams and making certain that bounties and pay-for-performance programs were not occurring.
Colt is a grown man and his dad needs to shut the $#@! up and sit there. If he had a problem with the Browns training staff go talk to the team. Don't run to the media about it. Jesus $#@!ing Christ do any of yall really know Brad McCoy or how he is? But Brad goes to the media because Brad wants to be in Colts position and Brad loves attention on himself and uses any exposure he can get to promote his $#@!ty Flippen Sports thing. In a sense Brad thinks he's God when it comes to coaching and etc.

I call BS on what Holmgren said today. Just trying to keep everyone in the henhouse happy....
We all know he is gonna start Weeden no matter what. If Colt beats out Weeden then the fans are gonna be pissed they drafted BW in the 1st place
But the other side of that is that a well run professional organization shouldn't make a monumentally stupid decision simply because their feelings are hurt and they were called out for something they screwed up. That doesn't absolve Brad McCoy of blame in this, but the Browns were free to act in any number of ways to rectify the situation that didn't keep them mired in mediocrity.
In other words, Brad and the Brown front office are the same: hypersensitive and egomaniacal.
I feel sorry for Colt being caught in the middle.
I'm sure Rachel frequently calls her father-in-law a hypersensitive egomaniac. Oh, and has posted that she needs to keep her own mouth shut earlier on this thread.
You might want to save that joke for when it actually, you know, makes sense contextually. Or not. Your choice.

I wasn't calling you Rachel, I just know she's reading this thread. Brad probably is, too.
First highlight of Weeden and Richardson together is a fumbled handoff..and when I didn't think it could get any worse they gave Richardson's explanation for fumbling..god I $#@!ing hate this franchise
$#@!ing espn creating drama.

Get out Colt! Get your cash and get the $#@! outta there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
interesting to note.... weeden claimed colt wasn't at the facility today, but seneca wallace was..... then emmanuel acho said he talked to colt before practice... fishy
either weeden is a liar or the two are trying to avoid each other. for a guy who is supposed to be mature from his experience playing pro baseball, I would expect for him to have already tried to reach out to colt. the only other explanation (which doesn't seem likely) is that he has tried to contact colt but he isn't returning his calls.
Guys on the Horn claimed this afternoon, that none of the QBs were talking to each other.
If I'm a head coach and I hear a player blame his fumbles on his "slick jersey" that mother $#@!er is running until he can't see straight. Guy was drafted to come in and be the franchise back and he's already making excuses day 1.
Browns QBs don't like to make friends on the team because they know they probably aren't going to be around long.
$#@! the browns! Get Colt to Arizona or somewhere else he can compete for the job.
What a cluster$#@! of a franchise. Poor whoever has to play for those clowns.
