Mike Holmgren seems to have it in his head for now that Brandon Weeden will have to beat out Colt McCoy for the Browns starting QB job in 2012.
Browns President Mike Holmgren stressed Tuesday that although the team expects rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden to start this season, he’ll still have to beat out Colt McCoy and Seneca Wallace for the job. “We drafted a young quarterback that we think can come in and play right away,but we’re not just going to hand him the football,” the Browns president said on The Bull and Fox Show on 92.3 The Fan. “I still love Colt McCoy [but] we had a chance to get a mature quarterback who has a chance to come in and contribute right away. Whether that happens or not we have to let it play out. We have to let them compete. We have to let them play and see what happens. The fact that we drafted him so high means that we like him, but we also like Colt McCoy and we like Seneca as well.”
