Daily Dawg Tags: Could Tim Couch have success with this Browns roster?
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a look at how Tim Couch would have done on this roster
There’s no denying fans were thrilled to have their team back when the Cleveland Browns were reintroduced to the NFL in 1999. They even stuck by them through some lean times — especially at quarterback.
Times are much better now, especially when it comes to their play under center. Baker Mayfield has taken over the franchise and has them winning. But the team around him deserves a ton of credit as well.
In fact, their roster is so stacked that it brought up a question recently about whether or not Tim Couch — the No. 1 pick in 1999 when the Browns did return to the NFL — could have found success with this club.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

Browns: Tim Couch would’ve had a much better career with this team — Chad Porto, Factory of Sadness
"“It’s very possible that in this offense Couch doesn’t get hit so many times and that allows him to stay healthy. With the talent at receiver and tight end (something he never had), Couch doesn’t feel the need to force throws.”"
Porto is probably right on. Couch wouldn’t be hit nearly as often in this offense because their line is now legit. He also wouldn’t be a huge star either. Still, he probably leads them to similar success that Baker has, which could have been fun to see.
Wyatt Teller knows he’ll have ‘great guys around me’ with continuity in offense — Anthony Poisa, Cleveland.com
"“It’s crazy going into Year 4 in the NFL and this is the first time having the same offensive line coach for two years in a row,” he said. “I’m doing my work and I’m trying to get better.”"
We all think about Baker Mayfield having several coaches but the same has been true for most of these players — including Teller who was added in a trade with Buffalo during the 2019 season. He too should have success from working with the same staff.
