Flugel Posted April 13, 2010 Report Share Posted April 13, 2010 On a night Colt McCoy would wear Suh like a jersey in the Big 12 Championship - there were no excuses or explanations required at the end of the evening. The winning horse in this contest was a Colt! I could see this type of interview shaking out after the Big 12 Championship - of course the McCoy answers is how your buddy Flugel would answer the questions if he was lucky enough to have such talents as Colt McCoy: NFL Scout: "Hey Colt, how come you weren't stepping into your throws today?" McCoy: "Because I met a man named Suh. And then I met him again. And again. And again, and again." NFL Scout: "Aren't you worried the scouts are going to think you have a weak arm?" McCoy: "I'm not worried about any scout that researches me. When Brett Favre got hit all game long by the Saints' defense - what happened on his last throw? Did it look STRONG? Coud he step INTO it? Would it be fair to say that was how he always threw the ball or did a Championship Game present challenges from a talented opponent that didn't allow pocket comfort? I'm just happy we won the Big 12 Championship. I've experienced 45 wins in my journey with this team as a starter." NFL Scout: "Some worry about your toughness - because you left the National Championship Game early." McCoy: "Are those the same people putting Bradford at the top of the draft worrying about my toughness? Out of a possible 53 games in 4 years - I've started 52 of them. The 1 game I left was because I had no feeling in my arm. If I had trouble with courage, I could have left the game after any of 1 of Suh's hits but didn't." NFL Scout: "Why do you think Jimmy Clausen and Sam Bradford were 5 star athletes and you were only a 3 star athlete?" McCoy: "I've never been fond of stereotypes and grouping players into this category or that category. My job has always been to go out, compete and above all - have fun doing it. If I had to guess, there's always been a discomfort about a kid from a small town with just 1 traffic light going on to play in the bright lights, big city outside of it. The good news is they didn't have to bury the Texas Longorns winning tradition after Vince Young left campus. I'm quite proud of that and it's done wonders for my sense of what I can achieve." NFL Scout: "What makes you the perfect QB for an NFL team? McCoy: It all starts with the understanding that nobody is perfect especially me. This becomes the fuel that drives my engine. Guys like Drew Brees and Brian Sipe heard all of the same criticism I'm hearing. Other guys like Tony Romo, Marc Bulger, Jeff Garcia, and Kurt Warner were completely snubbed from the draft all together. I'm very excited to get the chance to prove why I think I belong in the NFL. It's something I began working on about 8 years ago. - Tom F. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
