Very nice read on Colt by Vic Carucci. He gives us a little more insight to Colt and thethings that make him successful at QB. Delhomme is a McCoy fan.

That punching the steering wheel because they missed a pass in practice story reminds me of the way Colt reacted when Gruden was showing him some film of his mistakes in that pre-draft ESPN special.

I like seeing that stuff about Delhomme as well. Always liked him as a classy individual when he was down here in Carolina...even when he was sucking.

I really like how he appears to be mentoring Colt. Delhomme may not have the physical skills anymore, but his experience is immense, and it's a great gift to pass on to Colt.

$14m is either waaaayy too much to pay for a baby sitter for your potential franchise QB or it's quite a bargain if he mentors a 10 yr starter.

Time will tell.

What you speak of is why the signing (with someone else's money) didn't bother me in the first place.

There is something to be said about a guy you can bring in that can handle losing with out rocking the boat and still contribute to the team in some sort of positive way. By that I mean both games and his job, and they understood both when they brought him in.

This as opposed to a guy wanting to take his shot at starting. There really wasn't a dearth of those types of players around the league, particularly ones who played in SB's.

This signing was strategically made from the start.

Colt McCoy....

-Preparation freak
-perfectionist
-accurate
-a want to be great
-natural leader
-humble confidence

I think I read somewhere he was on campus doing some suicide sprints Monday morning at 7am after the Pats game this week

I like what I hear.

After 4 games of Colt at QB, I can't help but feel shocked how (at least I think) he is clearly our best quarterback of the three. After suffering through some previous disaster young QBs, this guy Colt seems to be weathering the storm and has a lot of moxie. Got to be a lot of pissed GMs who passed on him in the first 2+ rounds.

It certainly helps a young guy to have a solid O-Line and a decent running game to take the pressure off of him. But I really like this kid's presence.

Now lets somehow get this guy some receivers.
