Colt McCoy is Now the Backup QB in San Francisco

Cleveland Browns v Pittsburgh SteelersColt McCoy, last seen quail hunting – or looking woozy on the field after getting decapitated by James Harrison two years ago – is the backup QB in San Francisco.

Is this a surprise to anyone else?

The 49ers traded Alex Smith to the Chiefs, leaving a gaping hole at the No. 2 QB spot. And since Colin Kaepernick is a running QB, this seems like kind of a big deal.

So Colt McCoy is the guy?

So far, things are working well for McCoy on the practice field as the clear-cut No. 2 quarterback ahead of Scott Tolzien and rookie B.J. Daniels.

That’s hardly competition. I guess if JaMarcus Russell doesn’t stick with the Bears, perhaps the 49ers will give him a look? And what about Tim Tebow in San Francisco? Jim Harbaugh could navigate that circus, right? [via CSN Bay Area]
