The Cleveland Browns suffered their tenth loss of the season at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals 20-17 in overtime. Seneca Wallace started for the first time this season and after the game, head coach Pat Shurmur suggested that Seneca Wallace might remain as the Browns starting quarterback for at least Week 16 of the season.
The Cleveland Browns have struggled to score points this season and did manage to put 17 points on the board against the Arizona Cardinals, a team which has seen a late season surge. Wallace finished the afternoon completing 18 of 31 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions. Second-year QB Colt McCoy has only thrown for over 226 yards twice in 13 games this season. In face, the Browns have only scored 17 points of more in five games this season.
Browns head coach Pat Shurmur told the media in the post-game presser when asked about whether or not Colt McCoy would start next week. “It’s too early to tell. The decision is made when you’ve got both guys healthy. I don’t know what the situation is yet. We will see. In the event that Colt can’t play next week, then, of course, we will stick with Seneca. In the event that he can play, then we will cross that bridge when we need to”, said Shurmur. Hardly a glowing endorsement.
Seneca Wallace also produced the longest offensive play for the Browns in over four years, completing a 76-yard touchdown to rookie WR Greg Little. Wallace, 31, is under contract with the Cleveland Browns through the 2013 season.
