Poor Colt, and I honestly mean that from the bottom of my heart. Poor Colt, dude was thrown into a situation that only the likes of Jason Campbell, Michael Vick, Joe Flacco, or any other consistently decent QB could have succeeded. And I don’t mean that as a shot at him (I kind of, but whatever), but when you look at the situation in depth and see the fact that they drafted this guy second round to be the next savior of this franchise….something that hasn’t worked for them since Vinny Testaverde duck walked in town in 94 and took them to the playoffs, then failed the year after.
The man’s been thrown into a situation where his best WRs are Greg Little, Joshua Cribbs and Muhammed Massoquoi were his starting WRs, and his running back, Peyton Hillis, went straight diva on him Beyonce/Aretha Franklin/Patti LaBelle/Drake style after one productive season. Not to mention every time he gets hurt, Seneca Wallace just comes in and makes him look like he’s been accomplishing next to nothing….while being completely sub-par.
Now throw in what had to be an absolute shocker to him Thursday night when Oklahoma State’s QB Brandon Weeden was called and told “don’t worry about filling out your social security pensions yet, you’re going to be a Brown” (which is basically like Wal-Mart calling you to tell you they’re going to give you a promising career as a greeter), got to be utter shock! All the guy has done is be as decent as he can be in an offense not tailored to his strengths (or anyone’s for that matter), take enough hits to cause a few concussions and do his beset Frankie Muniz impersonation. You can’t ask for much more.
So we’re pretty sure that Colt is gone, I don’t see him being content with sitting on the very team that just shoved him to the side similar to the way Kim Kardashian got what’s his name from the New Jersey Nets all the way outta here. He’ll probably be traded, or ultimately, released. So where does he go? One would think Miami since they’ve been stockpiling QBs, or he can go to Oakland and wait for Carson Palmer to get concussed into believing he’s once again playing for the Bengals and tank it. Or just do what every injury prone QB who fizzled out of their original team’s roster: Go backup Ben Roethlisberger.
