He’s already faced the Steelers and Saints, and it looks like he’ll make his third straight start against the Patriots on Sunday. Browns coach Eric Mangini said that Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace would both sit out practice Wednesday, which makes McCoy the clear favorite to start against New England.
Wallace may not like it, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Browns settle on McCoy as their guy.
Team President Mike Holmgren indicated Tuesday that the time will come “soon” to truly evaluate McCoy to see if he can be their guy in the future.
It McCoy can help beat the Patriots, he should at least be the guy of the present. (We can hear the Bernie Kosar comparisons coming.)
