Colt McCoy really likes milk.
Most of us do as well, but Colt McCoy REALLY likes milk.
Jay Gruden said that Colt drinks a gallon of milk a day straight from the cows…umm…. how do I say this? Straight from the cows’ source, yeah that’s it.
Welcome, Colt, to the world of athletes that have a weird quirk.
Though it may be the obvious and easy way to react to this, I’ve heard enough of the “milk didn’t help Colt when he got hurt” jokes.
I think this strange revelation adds to the legend of Colt McCoy. Think about this for a second, this man has played eight seasons in the NFL, he’s only played in 38 career games starting 27 of them. His statistics are pedestrian at best, he’s thrown for nearly 6,000 yards, 29 touchdowns and 26 interceptions. He has a career 7-20 win/loss record.
Now when you look at these numbers, you think what’s your point Travis? How does milk fit into all this in Colt's favor? It's not like it kept him healthy enough to do anything other than be a serviceable backup quarterback for the Redskins (I know, I promised we were staying away from injury jokes but that's just a fact.)
Here's the real reason why Colt McCoy is winning, milk habit or not: He’s amassed 13 million dollars and counting! He can afford all the gallons of milk that he wants and then some. And this fun fact about milk could earn him some great sponsorship dollars to add on top of that (or at least it should - milk advertising executives, are you reading this?)
Got Milk? Colt sure does! Pour me a glass buddy!
