Colt McCoy's Pastor Catches a Bird With His Bare Hand


It's unclear how Colt McCoy and his pastor Matt Carter were aiming to publicize their new book, "Real Win: A Man's Quest for Authentic Success" by quail hunting in Texas. Perhaps, in a fit of marketing desperation, they were trying to align their promotional campaign with that of Dr. Pepper Ten's?

Here's what McCoy says in the video: "That was cool."

Here's what he was thinking the whole time: "How come my fucking pastor is a better receiver than anyone on the roster of the Cleveland Browns?"
