While we are Biased Boston Sports, I am a hardcore Texas Longhorns fan. It just so happens that one of the Washington Redskins quarterbacks is a Longhorn legend, and I feel the need to show my support for Colt McCoy.
If the Redskins depth chart was determined by on-field performance, one thing is for certain: Robert Griffin III would not be #1. While HC Jay Gruden is firmly entrenched that RGIII will be the starting quarterback, is that the right move? Could Dan Snyder be barking in Gruden's ear to keep the troubled quarterback at the top of the depth chart? So far this preseason, Griffin has had a 54.6 passer rating and Washington has not recorded a touchdown while he is on the field.
In stark contrast, Colt McCoy has arguably been the best quarterback for the Redskins through two games this preseason. McCoy's 131.6 passer rating is the best on the team, beating out Kirk Cousins' 118.3, and has accounted for three touchdown drives so far.
McCoy has always been confident in his abilities as a quarterback after graduating from the University at Texas. While his size has always come into question, similarly to other great quarterbacks, no one has ripped open his chest and examined his heart. He hustles and gives his all on every play and, if RGIII continues to struggle and get hurt, should be considered as the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins in 2015.
For any Longhorn fans out there, or anyone that just loves to see incredible college football, take a look at McCoy's career highlights. Its crazy to think that his talent can't transfer to the NFL.
