Tim Couch isnt afraid to look back. He might not always like what he sees, but hes not afraid to look back and wonder -- at the craziness, difficulty and challenges he faced in a brief four-year career with the Cleveland Browns. That career seems to symbolize the post-1999 Browns. Drafted first overall, Couch never lived up to the expectations he had for himself and the team. He came amidst much hoopla, but dealt with injury, defeat and wavering confidence during a four-year career that probably seemed like 40. Couch now lives in Lexington with his wife Heather Kozar (the pride of Green, Ohio) and his two sons. He does TV work for FOX Sports South, and is still involved in the community. His most recent effort: Being placed on the bottle of a special edition of Makers Mark, with all proceeds going to the Gill Heart Institute in Kentucky. As the first overall pick in the 1999 draft, and as the first overall pick of the expansion Browns, Couch was a good guy placed in bad situation...

Is Jason Pinkston the Browns true plan at right tackle?

From Jason Pinkston's Twitter - Doing Work According to an article by Pat McManamon from March 30th there probably isn’t anyone on the Browns working harder this off-season than offensive lineman Jason Pinkston. Pinkston is headed into his sophomore season as an NFL player after being selected by the Browns in the fifth round of the NFL draft. He was thrust into a starting...

Josh Cribbs on Cleveland’s draft prospects

Browns WR/Returner Josh Cribbs took to twitter to give his opinion on who the Browns should draft- ” Who do I think we should take in the draft??? Hmmm someone who will come in right away & contribute if not that we don’t need’em#justsaying” That about sums it up. Thanks Josh.

Greg Cosell: Browns must “shorten” the game with Trent Richardson

If Greg Cosell is right then the Browns will get the highest rated player in the draft overall at #4 this week. Interestingly enough, he echos a lot of what I was trying to say about Peter King’s stat of the week trumpeting the need for a passing game. Now Greg Cosell’s mock draft seems to back me up even more. Cleveland: The Browns select my highest rated player, RB Trent Richardson...

Report: Browns will likely take Trent Richardson then best WR available

According to Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net, it looks like the Cleveland Browns will take Alabama running back Trent Richardson with the 4th overall pick in this week’s draft. They’re then expected to use the 22nd pick to take the best available wide receiver. My guess is that the Browns could end up landing Baylor receiver Kendall Wright with the 22nd overall pick. He didn’t...

Browns likely won’t know about potential punishment of two players before draft

According to a tweet by Adam Schefter, the Saints and any team that has players involved in the New Orleans bounty program, might not know what discipline is to be handed down until after the draft. Text of the tweet- “An announcement on player discipline in Saints bounty scandal is “unlikely” for today. Again. have to wonder now if next week more likely” The Browns have...

The Cleveland Browns Defense, What we Have and what the Draft Strategy Should Be

The Cleveland Brown defense was something of a mirage last season. It ranked as one of the lowest for run defense #30 overall and ranked as one the highest for pass defense #2. We could look at this in two ways. We were so bad at stopping the run that teams decided that they did not need to pass on us, or that Dick Jauron the new Defensive coordinator really set up a shutdown...

Tim Couch, Courtney Brown join concussion lawsuits

The NFL hasn’t been very lenient with regard to the New Orleans Saints and the bounty allegations. Most assume that it has everything to do with former players health concerns, namely concussions. The lawsuits are forming and now include a couple of guys who could still be members of the Cleveland Browns had they not washed out of the league due to injuries. The newest claim includes...

Browns armed with 3 high picks

Browns general manager Tom Heckert's draft-day gamble last year is about to pay off. Heckert traded down in the first round a year ago, giving the No. 6 overall pick to Atlanta and acquiring the Falcons' first-round pick this year (No. 22) as well as a fourth rounder. The additional first-rounder should enable the Browns, who also have the No. 4 overall selection, to acquire...

2012 NFL Draft Preview

Does anyone think that if you took all of the draft picks the Browns have made since 1999 and switched them with the ones the Steelers made, that the Steelers wouldn’t still be the Steelers, and the Lerner-era Browns wouldn’t still be an historically embarrassing wreck of a franchise? Everybody’s shopping in the same place for seeds, and its impossible to believe the variation...
