Cleveland Browns’ GM Mike Holmgren met with the media this morning and dropped a bomb: Thursday, after QB Colt McCoy absorbed a helmet-to-helmet hit from James Harrison of the Steelers, the Browns never tested him for a concussion.
Holmgren said the doctors and trainers didn’t “see” the hit because they were tending to another player who went down. Really? They’re not watching a 7-3 game in the 4th quarter? What about all the coaches upstairs who help alert the team when to throw a challenge flag? They didn’t see the hit or replays on the NFL Network, either? Their excuse: The doctors were down there, they must have known McCoy was nearly decapitated.
I expect the Browns to be looking for a new head trainer in the offseason.
What a complete embarrassment by the organization. Colt McCoy’s dad was right to rip the Browns. If they finish with a top five draft pick and it looks like they’re going to target Matt Barkley, the USC QB, wouldn’t you rather stay in school than go to play for that franchise?
