Davis mum on QB competition
So who's winning the Browns' quarterback
Fat chance on finding a clue. Butch Davis isn't
giving that up.
Tim Couch and Kelly Holcomb have "competed"
through nine quarterback school practices. The
rest of the team is there too, of course, but
this was supposed to be the beginning of Davis'
search for his No. 1 quarterback.
"It's going good," Davis said. "It's not
something you go out and discuss and talk about
[each day]. Guys take reps and opportunities, and
go out and execute and perform."
Davis has kept everyone on the team guessing by
mixing first-teamers with second- and
"You look up in the huddle and you'll see three
rookies in with six veterans," he said. "You're

of their performances have gotten better."
Davis said Couch's attitude "has been great . . .
he's in good spirits, is out there doing a good
The team has five more quarterback school
practices, and then five practices in the veteran
minicamp June 10-12.
Davis would not speculate on when he might
announce his starting quarterback.
"As I said before, it can be at any particular
time," he said. "Once we feel this is the
direction and it's the right time and we feel
we're making the right decision, that's when
we'll do it."
