Wallace Says He Can’t See He and McCoy on the Roster in 2012

Seneca Wallace said today that he and Colt McCoy will “probably not” both be on the roster behind Brandon Weeden, and that he doesn’t want to be the No. 3 quarterback.

“Can any of you guys see all three of us being here?” Wallace said. “You’ve written about it, so that answers your question…Probably not,” he said.

He also made it clear he doesn’t want to be the No. 3 quarterback. Browns coach Pat Shurmur indicated today it’s possible all three will remain, and that Colt McCoy could end up being the No. 2 and Wallace the No. 3. The Browns also like developmental quarterback Thad Lewis.

“No, not really (I don’t want to be the No. 3),” said Wallace. “That’s something that obviously for no reason you go down to the third guy, and we all know the third guy doesn’t dress on Sundays and if that comes down to that decision, obviously neither one of us (him or McCoy)wants to be that third guy.”

    Yeah. He is probably correct. But, they would be wise to keep both around for as long as they can through the pre-season, anyway. An injury somewhere could make either of these guys marketable in a way that could be good for them and the Browns. I like McCoy as a player and a person, from what I have seen. Good work ethic and has the right ‘tude. Seneca, I’m not so sure. Seems like a decent guy, but I didn’t like his failure to help thingy last year with McCoy — competing or not. This is a team sport. It’s not like they were going to reduce his pay or cut him if he helped McCoy out.

    Not sure why Holgren has such a Bromance for this guy. He is an average backup at best. I would take Colt over him any day. The only reason he said he would “mentor” Weeden is because he is affraid for his job, he never helped Colt, not that his mentoring would help. He has a history of a poor attitude and his skills are questionable. Keep Colt, he might not have the best arm, but the players respect him and he has a great TEAM attitude.

    They should have drafted another QB in the late rounds and dropped both Walleye and Colt. Considering that they feel McCoy is NOT “the Guy”, what type of insanity is it to think Wallace is a better #2?!?

    He’s a higher-paid QB that looks worse than Colt, has a me-first-team-second attitude, and has problems with clock management. Plus, he’s been injured every season that he’s started (although I tend to blame that on the Front Office putting together a Murderer’s Row Offensive Line).

    There can be no right answer here because the Front Office has made too many mistakes with the offense, in past years. Maybe they’ve drafted well This year… We’ll see. At least we’ll have a pre-season to be able to get these guys as ready as they can be for the regular season.
