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.
I forsee you possibly taking the fire extinguisher and putting out the flames on Couch's jersey.
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.
