Colt McCoy on Browns: 'It's been a rough ride so far'

Once upon a time, Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy was the cool new kid in Cleveland. He had high hopes, even if it wasn't his stated goal to be the greatest thing that's happened to the city.

Two humbling seasons later, McCoy has learned how tough the NFL can be.

"It's been a rough ride thus far," McCoy told the Abilene (Texas) Reporter News. "We've had our ups and downs. I've had three (offensive) coordinators going into my third year. Two head coaches in two years.

"There's been some ups and downs and things you have to fight through. Most are things out of your control. But for me, I would just like a little consistency. I love the town. I love the fans. I think they truly deserve a winning football team. That's what I want to do. I want to be there for the ride of turning that thing around. We'll see what happens."

We continue to believe that the Browns will ultimately trade McCoy. Seneca Wallace fits naturally as a backup, and the Browns could potentially get a conditional late-round pick for McCoy during training camp. The Texas product hopes that doesn't happen.

"I really like Cleveland," McCoy said. "I've always been a guy that wants to finish what he starts."

In the interview, McCoy repeatedly talked about handling the things he can control. At this point, we're not sure McCoy can do anything to change the minds of the Browns brass. Only a Brandon Weeden training-camp injury would truly give McCoy a chance to start again.
