McCoy doesn’t do much to separate himself

Colt McCoy AP

The 49ers intend to play all their quarterbacks tonight, hoping one of the last four do something to make a job their own.

But after some early promise, Colt McCoy didn’t help his case.

McCoy moved the ball efficiently for a moment, but threw an interception. He followed it up by getting them into position for a field goal (which is progress), but his third-down pass preceding the kick was overthrown by about six feet. He finished the half 4-of-8 for 26 yards, and that 3.3 yards per attempt isn’t what they’re looking for.

Entering the night, rookie B.J. Daniels was the only one of the 49ers quarterbacks to have thrown a touchdown pass, and between him, Scott Tolzien and recently acquired Seneca Wallace, they’re hoping someone emerges.

But McCoy’s not doing much to help himself.

    He still looked better than that noodle armed Ponder chick.

    It appears as though he is doing well separating himself from the Niners.

    Wow, Minnesota looks awful.

    Nice trade, Fraudbaugh!

    After the game, McCoy will board a separate bus that goes directly to SFO.

    If SF had any thoughts of ripping off a QB desperate team and getting a draft pick for McCoy give it up. No shot, no way, Jose. Nobody is that desperate not even a house wife.

    The guy who just cheap shotted Kevin Williams knee away from the play needs to ve suspended for a year… at least.

    Even by the sound of his voice and the look of his demeanor he looks like he can’t even separate himself from high school freshmen.

    Mccoy’s career for all intensive purposes died in the 1st quarter against Alabama in the Rose Bowl

    He’ll get death threats.

    Great job McCoy….109 yards and 1 INT.

    When you’re on the Jets at least those will look like decent numbers in comparison.

  12. jayniner says: Aug 25, 2013 10:37 PM

    …and BJ Daniels just took your job, son.

    McCoy was just never one of those quarterbacks meant to step into the league and start right away. A few years spent refining his game behind an elite QB would have done him a world of good. I doubt that any team now is going to want to put that kind of effort and resources into coaching him back up.

    Colt McCoy looks at Carolina’s Jimmy Clausen for inspiration.

    *intents and purposes.

    Learn your native tongue.

    Bama put the fear of God in Colt, too which he never recovered. At Least he got a steamy hot wife out of it!

    Daniels looked terrific. Again. But it’s against 4Q Minnesota players. Still, he shows great promise.

  18. mingo49 says: Aug 25, 2013 11:24 PM

    Yet there are still legions of Browns fans who are angry at the regime for trading him, and for not starting him over Weeden.

    Unbelievable. I haver no idea what McCoy ever did to give such high hopes to those people, but they need to take their blinders off. This guy is nothing special.

    “intensive purposes”???

    Bwa ha ha ha!

  20. thetooloftools says: Aug 26, 2013 12:11 AM

    I think Colt will be ok. Coach him up. I wish he had NORV TURNER here in Cleveland.
    Go get em’ Colt.

    I clicked “report that comment” on you filthymcnasty1, my apologies. I wanted to commend the comment, I guess it’s not craislist.

    Hey I didn’t like this trade from the beginning but BJ Daniels looks good so far.. And I like the 3 plays Seneca ran more then colts done this whole preseason.. Scared.. and his only upside is when he is running for his life but even then he doesn’t even look to pass and that’s supposed to be his job…. GO NINERS

    With a one way ticket to NY.

    Lot of over reaction here. He didn’t do that bad. He will find a team.

  25. sharkie29 says: Aug 26, 2013 3:09 AM

    Haha, its funny because Harbaugh actually announced that McCoy will be the backup for Kaepernick.

  26. pksullivanmha says: Aug 26, 2013 8:54 AM

    Send him to the Bills he has to be better than MattLeinert. @footballady52🏈

  27. jimmyjames65 says: Aug 26, 2013 8:30 PM

    Daniels played great. Kaepernick had a look on his face that said “What happened to Alex Smith.” Think Colin is worried about being kicked to the curb?
