Couch to start this week

Postby VHawk15 » Mon Oct 06, 2003 11:01 pm

Tim Couch will again get the nod for the Browns this Sunday. If he can pull off this win at home, he might have earned his starting job back.

As I see it both of them suck. If I were to make a call today on which to start though I would go with Couch. What has Holcomb done? Nothing. The Browns killed the Steelers this weekend with Couch at the helm. While the win is due in large part to the play of the defence I wold still go with Couch. Holcomb just had 2 good games last year, no reason to give up on the QB that has done so much for your team over the past years.

How can you bench him after his performance on SNF?

Ive heard arguments from both camps. The general consensus that I've gathered is that Couch will play until Holcomb's injury is no longer an issue. When Holcomb's healed, he'll take back the starting job he won in the preseason.

Personally, I just want the Brownies to win. If that means staying with the hot hand until it cools, albeit. Who knows, maybe this "backup" role finally knockd a little perspective into Couch's mind. From the way he has looked in the last two games, minus those two key interceptions, Couch looks like the guy everyone thought he would be when he was drafted. Granted it has taken him 5 years to get to this point, but maybe that lil shot of reality Davis gave him during the preseason has actually brought out the kind of player Couch should have beenn all along.

But if Davis does decide to play QB Roulette with Couch/Holcomb, it will spell trouble for the team this year. Davis needs to just stick with one or the other.

Does anyone think that Couch will take over Holcomb's job?

I forsee you possibly taking the fire extinguisher and putting out the flames on Couch's jersey. :-D He looked very good last week, and actually looked calm. I've seen him look very nervous in some of his past games where he seems terrified to make any mistakes. I see the team taking a few lumps (another one from the Bengals :-) ) along the way, but I think Couch gives them a better chance to win. Maybe the benching did him some good.
