Shurmur Says McCoy Improving

While the Browns are 3-3 after Sunday’s lackluster 6-3 win over the Seahawks, Pat Shurmur gave the team the day off, and went out and said that Colt McCoy did good things and is improving. Huh?

In Colt McCoy’s first game since Browns President Mike Holmgren said he’d evaluate him after the season, McCoy failed to score a touchdown, produced a total of six points and earned a 59.0 rating. But Browns coach Pat Shurmur is looking for progress from his young quarterback and felt he got it during Sunday’s 6-3 victory over the Seahawks.

“I think Colt’s improving and I’ll stick with what I said [Sunday]: I thought he battled,” said Shurmur. “He scrambled once and got a first down, he got outside the pocket a couple of times and got yards and got out of bounds. He did a lot of good things.” Shurmur acknowledged that he’s got to find a way to get McCoy out of the gate faster. The Browns have been outscored, 34-3, in the first quarter and struggled again against the Seahawks.

    One of the things this season is about is evaluating what they have in McCoy. He has, what, 13 games under his belt? Not enough time to evaluate, IMO. Add to the mix the new offensive system compounded by the lockout which delayed the installation of it, absence of a WR playmaker, so far, and disappearance of Hillis for whatever reasons. All those things contribute, I should think, which is why evaluation must wait until the end of the season. Relax. This team wasn’t going anywhere this season, anyway. One thing is for sure, if they cannot start to generate offense better than what they have to date, I do not see more than one or possibly two more wins . . .

    Pathetic! I thought teams were suppossed to get better as the year goes on. Yes, yes, injuries, ALL teams have injuries. McCoy’s play is getting worse not better, a running game averaging less than 3 yds per carry, Robiskie(Rowho?), special teams that resemble last years Chargers special flops. And now that things are not progressing as well as he thought his cronies would have it going Holmgren is making noises of pulling chalks and leaving. Same old Browns. Same great fans getting crap for a team. Until we get an owner who cares about his football team and football for that matter,we are going nowhere!
