Two QBs impress, in very different ways | The Columbus Dispatch

The Turnpike Rivalry was rejoined on a sun-splashed Sunday, and it turned into a tale of two quarterbacks - one Big Ben, the other young Colt, each compelling in his own way. Full Story

We can now fully expect McCoy to pull up with a high ankle sprain sometime this week? But seriously, he held his own -- if that's the best you can say about the QB of a team that lost 28-10?

He had absolutely no weapons to throw too which makes me wonder how well he would've played if he did?

For the team McCoy has he did damn good! Give him a team that is play-off worthy and he'll be great.

Big Ben was out of pratice and over doing it. He should know better. I hope he gets his head in the game insead of in his a**, then we are super bowl bound.

Thus, rookie Colt McCoy became the 17th starting quarterback trotted out since the rebirth of the franchise in 1999.

This statement is incorrect. He is their 16th starting quarterback. Please do your research and make sure your facts are correct.

I didn't know the dispatch had the money to have a reporter venture out of the state to cover a non "local" team. However not sending a reporter to cover the Reds playoff games in Philly is still pretty despicable.

The reds got swept. They were the least worst in the division. Give it a rest.

My guess is Arace wasn't at the game at all, but watching on TV at home. Much like he covers the Stanley Cup.

Let's also keep in mind that Big Ben wasn't exactly playing against the best pass defense in the league.

What's that have to do with not covering the games? Nobody knew they'd get swept before the series. The fact is the dispatch has no idea how to prioritize the assignments of the reporters that it has on staff. Send someone to cover preseason football (i.e. the hall of fame game), but not playoff baseball is poor newspaper management.

The lead of the article says "pittsburgh" not "mommy arace's basement", so let's hope he wasn't being misleading.

Are we supposed to feel empathy for a dirtbag like Roethlisberger now? With a victory in hand has he been redeemed? Why was he suspended again? How soon we forget. I'm guessing the tears in Ben's eyes were the result of the awful stench emanating from the greater Pittsburgh environs.

McCoy looked decent against a strong defense. Time will tell if this is the start of something good for the Browns or not.

First, I have lived in Ohio all my life...and not a fan of any team in the AFC North. My message to all you haters out there....Give it a rest. Brown' fans, you may have just found your 16th QB and may not need to look for a 17th for awhile. Be Happy and see where this ride will take you. Bengal fans, all I can say is that Mike Brown has been taking you for a ride for the last 20 plus years.
You have my sympathy. Carson Palmer is done.

I don't know why the Dispatch would print a comment from a non-local person. Neither the Reds, nor the Browns are local, but do have local following. Keep your remarks in NYC.
