Colt McCoy Wired for Sound

Colt McCoy is the latest 49ers player to be wired for sound.

Colt McCoy is the latest 49ers player to be wired for sound.

San Francisco’s No. 2 signal-caller was “Mic’d Up” for the team’s preseason finale win over the San Diego Chargers.

McCoy finished the game 8 of 15 for 56 yards. He completed his first touchdown of the preseason, a 5-yard touchdown pass to running back Anthony Dixon.

Following the win, McCoy was able to view his “Mic’d Up” segment and had a big grin on his face after viewing the latest production from 49ers Studios.

As for his favorite moment in the clip, McCoy said it was the final touchdown of the game, a 14-yard touchdown pass from B.J. Daniels to rookie wideout Chuck Jacobs.

“I called the touchdown to Chuck,” McCoy said. “I heard the play call go in and I was behind the play so I could see the defense… I called it perfectly.”

McCoy said he enjoys watching game film, but appreciated the access in his wired for sound segment.


It’s much different than the film he typically watches on his team-issued iPad playbook.

“You get so caught up each day in watching just the tape,” McCoy said. “There’s no audio. There’s end zone views and sideline views. There are no commentators; you’re in a dark room watching film.

“To be able to pull back and listen to your interactions with teammates is a cool thing. You can listen to the other guys on the sidelines and hear about the plays being made. That’s a unique perspective for us.”

McCoy doesn’t like watching replays of himself on TV, but he did enjoy this unique perspective on the preseason finale.

“When it’s brought to light this way, the game is fun,” McCoy said. “When you win, the games are especially fun.”

McCoy even has a suggestion for the next “Mic’d Up” segment.

The fourth-year quarterback wants to see rookie wide receiver Quinton Patton featured.

“I’d like to see Q.P.,” McCoy said. “He’s always talking, but it’s always positive. He’s always having a good time. He seems to always be in the right place, so I’d like to see him.”
