"I think he's done an outstanding job here in training camp," Shurmur said via the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. "I'm very pleased with where he's at. I gained an even greater appreciation of him, the way he's competed, the way he's handled the situation, let's just call it that.
"I'm very impressed with how he's doing. I think that's good for our team. He understands one of the primary things you need to understand as a backup at this point -- to be ready to play -- because you're (an) ankle injury from being in there, and he's been on both sides of that coin and so he understands it."
A skeptic might point out that Shurmur is only trying to raise McCoy's trade value. A skeptic may be right, but we just don't see another team ponying up much, if anything for McCoy. Shurmur indicated he's already decided what he's going to do at quarterback.
