Riggo, what are u tryin to say.

If there was a monetary issue, Garcia wouldnt have been signed to such a big contract. Keep the QB situation as it was

I mean they would have held on to Couch, but probably as a backup. But with his previous contract that was impossible.

Starting on an expansion team, he was pretty much on his own. He was still a college QB on a pro team. Maybe with a year or two to learn from a master like Favre he'll learn what it takes to be a Pro QB!!!

Couch shows flashes of potential but he's just too inconsistent. Maybe a new start is what he needs, I'm not very high on him though.

You never know with QB that are drafted high and therefore have to go to horrible teams. Mabye Couch will succeed with more talent around him. The system you get drafted in has such a huge impact on how your career will unfold.

Remember!

Remember, the past few years Cleveland has been working it's way back from being an expansion team. Couch has had the Expansion experience, now he gets to be a back-up to a Title-town legend! Tough career!

Just think how you would do in your career if you had to follow up a legend!

I know those who follow me here at work, will have a very hard time!

Look at Couch as another Gus! He will continue to kick around for a while!
If a Marquis Tuisisopo (sp?) can stick for a long time as a back-up, then Couch can too!

Their mistake was choosing Holcome over Couch. If Couch had started, then he would still be on the team in my opinion, and have lead them to a better record. When he subbed in for Holcome during the injury, he played well

Is there anyone in here who thinks Holcome isn't better than Couch?

Holcombe had a couple of advantages over Couch. One was that teammates rallied around him more so than Couch. Couch was more of the loner type while Holcombe was the unsung backup QB/hero. Another is that Holcombe used to be the backup QB in Indianapolis, which on the surface isn't a big deal but Holcombe's QB coach in Indy was Bruce Arians who then went on to become Cleveland's Offensive Coordinator. Of course now the Browns OC is Terry Robiskie
