This mock up of an obituary for Colt McCoy's football career has been floating around the Internet today ...
You can read the whole thing here.
The conventional wisdom suggests that McCoy is in for a looooooooong and probably physically and psychologically scarring day on Sunday against a snarling Steelers defense that is as fierce as it is good. Which is to say very on both accounts.
Then again, he might be a natural and have a great debut, though with pretty much all of his Browns offensive mates already at least a little banged up -- and not exactly world-beaters when they are healthy -- that outcome seems unlikely.
The thought of McCoy lining up across from James Harrison, LaMarr Woodley, et al. brings to mind the thoughts of a young John Elway who made his professional debut in the 1983 season opener at Three Rivers Stadium.
