The charade that is the competition between the three quarterbacks for the starting job does not have incumbent Colt McCoy screaming bloody murder. He has not taken snaps with the first team -- that has been reserved for rookie Brandon Weeden. But McCoy is not complaining about it.
"All I've been told is to compete, which I would do regardless of the situation," he said. "I can't control anything but coming out here and getting better. As far as my natural progress, I couldn't be more pleased with where I am right now."
McCoy had his best performance of training camp on Wednesday. He excelled in team drills, earning praise from coach Pat Shurmur.
"He's doing great," Shurmur said. "I've seen him do things in this camp that he didn't do a year ago. He's comfortable in the system and in progressions. If he doesn't go to his one or two [receiver], he's finding his third instead of taking off and running."
McCoy also explained that, unlike last year, when there was no offseason and the Browns were installing a new offense on the fly, he knows where his receivers are. That has allowed him to concentrate on attacking particular defensive coverages.
