In perhaps the understatement of the year, Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy told told the Abilene Reporter News how his first two NFL seasons have gone as the Browns continue to be in a rebuilding mode.

"It's been a rough ride thus far," McCoy said. "We've had our ups and downs. I've had three (offensive) coordinators going into my third year. Two head coaches in two years."

McCoy threw for 2,733 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions last season and sat out the last three games with a concussion. Part of the problem was the offense, who only scored 218 points last season.

"There's been some ups and downs and things you have to fight through. Most are things out of your control. But for me, I would just like a little consistency," McCoy said. "I love the town. I love the fans. I think they truly deserve a winning football team. That's what I want to do. I want to be there for the ride of turning that thing around. We'll see what happens."
The Browns are 9-23 since McCoy's arrival in 2010, including 4-12 last year, good for last in the AFC North.
