Cleveland Browns QB Colt McCoy Learns From Brett Favre

There's a lot of fantasy football buzz right now around Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy. The second-year QB played extremely well Saturday night against the Green Bay Packers, and now there's word he's been getting QB help from a Packers legend.

According to the NFL Network's Steve Mariucci, McCoy worked out with Brett Favre in Mississippi for several days this summer, learning the West Coast Offense (which the Browns currently run). Favre is considered a WCO whiz, playing in the offensive system for many years under Mike Holmgren in Green Bay. Holmgren is now the Browns President.

McCoy reportedly worked out with Favre at a high school near where Favre lives.

McCoy appears to be a quick study. On Saturday night against the Packers, McCoy completed 9-of-10 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown.
