Colt McCoy’s brother rips Browns after falling for fake trade report

Case McCoy, the brother of Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy, ripped his brother’s team via Twitter on Friday in response to a fake trade rumor.

Case, who is a quarterback at the University of Texas, apparently had been duped by a fake ESPN Twitter account that said his brother had been traded to the Eagles. He sent the following tweet, which has since been deleted:

Brandon was a reference to quarterback Brandon Weeden, who was drafted by the team in the first round this year. Weeden is expected to replace McCoy as Cleveland’s starter.

It didn’t take long for Case McCoy to realize he made a mistake.

Case then spent some time on Saturday apologizing for his negative comments about the Browns.

That trade report may have been false, but one has to figure it might not be long before McCoy really is traded by the team. After all, this isn’t the first time one of McCoy’s family members criticized the team, and the Browns reportedly aren’t happy about it.

    Cleveland is a suck hole where QB’s go and are never heard from again, they will always suck because it comes from the top down.

    Sounds like a vindictive posting… If Colt is so ‘lucky’ to be jettisoned, why would Casey feel the need to vent about anything?  Why would he be ‘fired up’ in the first place?
