Questions about Colt McCoy...

My dream scenario: Hire Shannahan to run the WCO in SF and get McCoy. With Crabtree running the slants (he will sign) and Gore running the ball, it will be a much improved offense.

Here's a great article detailing some of McCoy's intangibles:

After a tough sophomore year, when he threw 18 interceptions, McCoy spent the offseason with Davis going over every play that he could have made a better decision.

Instead of avoiding his mistakes, McCoy attacked them. He immersed himself in his failures to emerge stronger.

That's what helped the trust grow between Davis and McCoy, Davis said.

"I've never known a quarterback as well as I know Colt," Davis said. "Part of that is because he's been starting for so long. And part of that is that's just who he is."

He's the leader of the Longhorns.


Very excited for this season to start.
Todd McShay current list of draft eligible QB's is as follows:

1) Sam Bradford
2) Jevan Snead
3) Colt McCoy
4) Tim Tebow


Im hoping for snead...

wow, that article is very impressive. Colt's the man, i hope we can end up with him in the draft next year

I just wish Mark Sanchez's stock didnt catch fire when it did this offseason... Then we would already have our franchise QB instead of some pre-madona WR - even though I will be very thankful once he actually signs.

Who were all of the Sanchez haters again??? I really do know how to pick winners...

wow...

Javon Snead reminds me alot of a Matt Ryan/Jay Cutler type QB where he as an arm to make just about every throw and is smart enough to read coverages. It's also a plus that he plays against LSU, Alabama and maybe Florida if they reach the SEC title game and all three of those teams have good defenses. If he does well this year and is a Heisman finalist, IMO he's a no brainer to draft in the first round.

Sorry for the thread hijack, I also think Colt McCoy will be a better college QB than an NFL QB

agree i think snead if developed right by the team hes picked will be the better qb out of bradford and mccoy. but i think if he does dominate and plays well against the elite sec teams he will be gone before our picks unless the panthers blow and perhaps have a top 3-5 pick

i hope that happens, i personally like McCoys game better than the other two guys. he's an exciting QB, very accurate, makes smart decisions, has improvisational skills when plays break down. i think he's gonna be the next steve young

I just feel that Texas' offense is capable of making even crappy QB's look very efficient... I mean, even Vince Young was close to leading the nation in passing efficiency during his Jr year.

Operating out of the shotgun 90% of the time and rarely throwing passes longer than 15-20 yards doesnt really show you much about a QB, and almost nothing about how his game will transfer to the NFL.

eh like abowers said texas' system has made many qbs look good, look at simms who had his shot in tb and couldnt beat out orton when healthy. vince was 1 hell of a qb at texas his throwing motion was unorthodox but he still completed many of his passes due to the system. regardless i would prefer snead over both bradford and mccoy
Colt McCoy will be a great QB in the NFL. I'm sure of it. I really hope we draft him next year. Colt has great physical skills. His accuracy is amazing. But the best thing about Colt if you really watch is his leadership and fire. QB's with that kind of leadership can have a drastic effect on how well the rest of the offense plays. They make everyone around them better.

But does he have a bigger upside than Sam Bradford??

i dont think bradford will be as good in the pros, he looked really timid against Florida last year. he will bve good, not a complete bust but i dont think he's gonna be a top teir QB. could be wrong ofcourse. i just like McCoy for our offense.

No

I watched Colt McCoy struggle and lose against TTU and barely beat OSU.
I watched Bradford destroy both teams.
And Sam did it with less talented teammates.

So as far as performance goes, Bradford wins.

Potential? Potential is based completely off measurables, there Bradford is a head and shoulders above McCoy and the others. Maybe Snead has similar measurables.

Hey Oscar, to run the WCO you need a line who can pass block!!

I think you need a line that can pass block for EVERY offense that is out there.
