BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Nothing gnaws at Colt McCoy or hurts him more than losing.
Just four games into his second NFL season, McCoy has already lost more games as a starting quarterback with the Cleveland Browns than he did in four years at Texas, where he finished as the winningest QB in NCAA history.
McCoy, who has taken some hard shots the past two weeks, is also taking a few hits from disgruntled Browns fans.
They want more from him, but first-year coach Pat Shurmur is preaching patience with McCoy, whom he still considers a rookie.
McCoy readily admits he has a lot to improve upon, and said he’ll spend a chunk of Cleveland’s bye week assessing what’s working and what’s not in Cleveland’s new West Coast offense.
