Shurmur sticking by Colt McCoy

The Cleveland Browns offense hasn't exactly been a juggernaut in recent weeks, and Browns president Mike Holmgren said that second-year QB Colt McCoy would be evaluated after the season.

After a 6-3 victory over Seattle Sunday that was anything but pretty, Coach Pat Shurmur said he is sticking with McCoy and believes he is showing improvement.

"I think Colt's improving and I'll stick with what I said [Sunday]: I thought he battled," Shurmur told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "He scrambled once and got a first down, he got outside the pocket a couple of times and got yards and got out of bounds. He did a lot of good things."

The question is whether McCoy will do enough "good things" over the course of the rest of the season to prevent the Browns from going after a quarterback in the draft to compete with him in 2012.
