Browns fans quickly began to think of other names who could possibly fill in as quarterback in an emergency as the situation appeared dire. Former No. 1 overall draft pick Tim Couch’s name was thrown out there, and he appeared to be excited about the idea.

The retired NFL quarterback said he could hand the ball off to Nick Chubb the entire time.

Couch is 44, the same age as Tom Brady, and came into the league one year before the New England Patriots selected the future stud quarterback with the No. 199 pick of the 2000 Draft.

Couch played for the Browns from 1999 per 2003 but retired after trying to latch onto different teams. He was the first Browns quarterback to lead the team to the playoffs since their return to the NFL.
