Colt McCoy was not happy in Cleveland. That was evident. But the former third-round pick has been traded to the San Francisco 49ers, a team that went to the Super Bowl last season, and he is happy about going to a winning organization.
McCoy discussed some of the differences between the Browns and 49ers during an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
“That’s going to be really special,” McCoy told the Star-Telegram “When I walked in the building in San Francisco, it was the same feel [as at UT]. It’s a great organization, and their only focus is: We want to win, and we want to win now. That’s obviously different than some of the things that I’ve been part of the last few years. I was really happy about that.”
You can tell from those comments how things were for McCoy in Cleveland. He seemed pretty excited at first about coming in there and running their West Coast offense, but the team was always pretty weak. He also was probably pretty excited about Cleveland initially because they showed faith in him by drafting him when many others passed on him. But he simply was not very good there. Now he’s going to be a backup in San Francisco, and he’s a pretty capable one. They run a good system in San Francisco, have excellent coaches, so there really is no reason for McCoy not to be thrilled about his new home.
