We arrived at the intrasquad scrimmage at Cleveland Browns Stadium a bit late, due in part to a decent turnout fueled by perfect weather conditions in Northeast Ohio.
And due in part to my effort to put out the Great Twitter Feed Fire of 2010. (Currently, we’ve gotten the situation under control. You may follow us again.)
But we arrived in the press box just in time to see rookie quarterback Colt McCoy do his best impersonation of the team’s current starter, Jake Delhomme.
McCoy threw three interceptions during the first half of the scrimmage. One was returned by cornerback Brandon McDonald for a touchdown, who flipped into the end zone and threw the ball into the stands.
The last McCoy interception came on a desperation heave at the end of the half. At first, it looked like McCoy had connected on a touchdown pass to a wide-open receiver. But then the folks in attendance realized that McCoy’s team, consisting of the second-team offense and first-team defense, is wearing white jerseys, and that the Browns player who caught the ball is in brown.
Meanwhile, there are a pair of youth games being played at halftime, with both featuring far more contact than the scrimmage, which features no live tackling.
UPDATE: In the early stages of the second-half of the scrimmage, Delhomme has avoided turning the ball over because several of his passes have been so far off the mark that neither the offensive player nor the defense player could catch it.
