Running back Willis McGahee has been on a few good teams over the years. His latest team is unexpectedly good, winning three in a row after supposedly giving up on the season by trading Trent Richardson to Indianapolis.
So how good can the Browns and McGahee, who rushed for 72 yards and a touchdown two weeks after joining the team, be?
“Sky’s the limit for us,” McGahee told PFT Live on Wednesday. “Sky’s the limit for me.”
McGahee said he’ll be back to 100-percent football shape in “another week or two,” and that his late arrival will help him go farther late in the year, when folks who have been grinding since August are more fatigued and beat up.
Asked to compare this Browns team to one of the other teams on which he played, McGahee went straight to the magical Tebow season in Denver.
“The Browns compare to my first year in Denver when those guys were young,” McGahee said. “They had a vet, which was Champ Bailey but it shows the same characteristics. Young, everyone being together, we weren’t winning at first but the we started winning. Once you believe, you believe.”
I believe the Browns won’t be furthering that comparison by signing Tim Tebow.
