Josh McCown has bounced around from team to team since entering the league and has never started a full season as a quarterback. When you take that all in, you also have a guy that is 35 years old, and who was just paid 5 million a season for the Browns. Well while many call Josh McCown a horrible signing, he is ready to prove people wrong. McCown says he understands why people do not like the signing, but he is confident he can get the job done.
“I get it,” McCown told Northeast Ohio Media Group. “I understand people’s perceptions of me. I don’t back off it or shy away from [the 1-10 record in 2014]. I understand people’s frustration. But my mindset is to come in here, grow and improve as a football player, and help this team win football games. When I’ve been able to operate in a system that’s organized and been around for awhile like I did in 2013 with the Bears, I’ve been able to play at a high level.”
Ray Farmer better hope this signing works, because if it doesn’t he could be out as the GM next season.
