According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal, new Browns head coach Pat Shurmur stressed his confidence in second-year quarterback Colt McCoy during an appearance at the Hall of Fame Club luncheon.
“I feel like he’s got it,” Shurmur said. “He makes good decisions. He’s an accurate thrower. He’s mobile. He’s got great command of the huddle. He’s a leader. He’s a guy that I think can be the guy to lead our organization, so I’m looking forward to getting to work with him.” Unfortunately, Shurmur cannot start coaching McCoy in the West Coast offense due to the lockout.
The Rams coaching staff was reportedly not high on McCoy last year when Shurmur was the offensive coordinator so Shurmur either disagreed then or has changed his mind now. McCoy has excellent leadership ability as evidenced by his becoming the winningest NCAA quarterback while at the University of Texas and his organizing workouts with teammates during the lockout. The jury is still out, however, on McCoy’s ability to be a legitimate NFL-starting quarterback and his grown will likely be hampered by the Browns’ lack of offensive weapons.
