OK, you want to talk logic right ? You are trying to quote his Browns experience as substantiation that McCoy is some stud of a QB right ? So, if that was the case, why did he get cut ? 11 picks in 2011 right ? And he threw 3 picks in 3 preseason games right ? I don't know about you, at least mathematically it seems to suggest he has regressed. Plus, a TD ratio of 14 TDs to 11 INTs is nothing to brag about. Brandon Weeden is better than him by a mile.
I never called McCoy some stud QB nor was it implied. I'm not putting words in your mouth so I don't see why your putting them in mine.
McCoy did throw 11 picks in 13 games as the Browns starter in 2011....by contrast Tom Brady threw 12 picks in 16 games and Drew Brees threw 14 picks in 16 games. Would you like to compare the 3 QB's supporting casts ? Cleveland had little offensive talent to help support Colt. While Colt is no Brady or Brees nor will he ever be, he showed he can protect the football.
It's hard to determine whether he regressed or not based off of a few preseason games when you consider just how many snaps he has had this preseason. And citing his 3 picks as some troubling statistic that should concern us is also lacking. Flacco has 4 preseason picks...should the Ravens be holding a QB competition for the week 1 starter ? While those 3 picks aren't a good thing, you cannot simply determine whether he regressed or not off of a statistic nor can you determine whether or not he can protect the football or not solely off of a statistic in this case. The coaches use more than preseason gameplay and statistics in their evaluations, which means there is information we are not privy to that will help them decide which QB's stay and which go.
