Once again the Cleveland Browns are going into the offseason with many questions on both sides of the ball. The biggest question the Browns have to answer is whether or not they have the franchise’s answer at quarterback. Since the Cleveland Browns have joined the NFL in 1999, they have had a total of 16 different starting quarterbacks and only one of those quarterbacks have started the entire season and that was Tim Couch in 2001.
Colt McCoy has played sub par this season completing only 57.2 percent of his passes, and has taken a step back in most people’s eyes. Some reasons McCoy could use to down play his season is that he did not have his starting running back for most of the season and the Browns were one of the worst teams in dropped passes. Greg Little led the team with 11 drops, Benjamin Watson second with seven and Montario Hardesty had six.
Should the Cleveland Browns worry about adding another QB so that this coaching regime can mold their own “guy”, or try adding weapons and protection that can help the current QB Colt McCoy succeed? With nine total draft picks, two of which are in the first round, the Cleveland Browns have enough cap space and draft picks to bring in players with talent for both sides of the ball. They are on the right path to success, but most of that future success will be determined on the quarterback position and how they decide to handle the situation. Only time will tell, but Browns fans are hoping for sooner rather than later.
