Celebrating former Cleveland Browns QB Tim Couch’s birthday
For those fans like myself who were just infants when the Cleveland Browns selected Tim Couch in the 1999 draft, this article is going to be a bit of a history lesson for you. Friday is Tim Couch’s birthday, so it only felt right writing this up as a celebration.
Before Baker Mayfield, Tim Couch was the last Browns quarterback to be named to the PWFA All-Rookie team, and was the last quarterback for the Browns to start all 16 games. He accomplished the feat of starting all 16 games for the franchise only once, and that was in 2001. While Couch’s NFL career was only five seasons, he is often remembered as the best Browns quarterback between the 1999 season and the 2017 season.
He’s been pretty involved in the Browns organization since his retirement, even calling preseason games for the franchise in 2018. It’s refreshing to see a player who was once a part of the organization stay involved with the team after his playing days. The Browns put out a tweet where you can wish him a happy birthday for those who have good memories of watching him play.
For those who don’t remember watching Tim Couch play, or want to take a trip down memory lane and see how the first pick of the new era Browns (No. 1 overall in 1999) did during his short career.
With that being said, here are Tim Couch’s top five games as a member of the Cleveland Browns.
