New Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown is aware of the fact that some people doubt he's the man to turn things around for the Browns under center in 2015.
After going 1-10 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after signing a much-hyped two-year deal before the 2014 season, McCown says that's part of the territory.
“I get it,” McCown said to the Northeast Ohio Media Group. “I understand people’s perceptions of me. I don’t back off it or shy away from [the 1-10 record in 2014]. I understand people’s frustration. But my mindset is to come in here, grow and improve as a football player, and help this team win football games. When I’ve been able to operate in a system that’s organized and been around for awhile like I did in 2013 with the Bears, I’ve been able to play at a high level.”
After investing a three-year deal in the veteran signal caller, the Browns hope that McCown can round back into the shape that made him such a commodity for the Chicago Bears back in 2013. McCown threw 13 touchdowns against just one interception for the Bears that season, compared to 48 touchdowns against 58 interceptions for the rest of his career.Back to the Cleveland Browns Newsfeed
