Browns QB Colt McCoy has struggled throughout the 2011 season which has fueled speculation that the team may be looking to go in a different direction in the coming years.
Holmgren added that he’s not against the idea of adding a new quarterback every year until they find one that sticks: “You have to find that person.”
Holmgren also noted that the Browns figure to add an offensive coordinator next season as well.
ESPN’s AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley writes that Browns appear to have changed their minds regarding Colt McCoy’s future with the team.
“This is a major shift from April 2010, when McCoy said Holmgren compared him to Steve Young and Joe Montana because of his intangibles. This vote of no confidence comes after 13 up-and-down NFL starts for McCoy. One of the reasons why the Browns have failed to challenge for the AFC North title consistently is the lack of a franchise quarterback. Until they get one, Cleveland will always be chasing the Steelers and the Ravens.”
