The 1999 quarterback class was the last time the NFL saw five quarterbacks selected within the first 12 picks of the draft.

TINSTAAQP might as well be part of the normal fan speak this time of year when it comes to the NFL Draft.1 There Is No Such Thing As A Quarterback Prospect is a subtly often repeated idea expressed through everything from whispers to shouts of names such as Ryan Leaf, JaMarcus Russell, Brandon Weeden, and

The Cleveland Browns Friday Fumble is going back to 1999 to the archives.
Former No. 1 overall pick Tim Couch is no stranger to elbow problems, and he thinks second-year quarterback Johnny Manziel should act with caution as he deals with his own elbow issues.

Welcome to the Friday before Christmas my fellow WaitingForNextYear-ians. WFNY’ers. To my Christmas-celebrating folks, congrats, you made it. To my Jewish friends, know that I’m jealous and wish I was at the movies with you next Thursday. When I got to college and a couple of my new Jewish friends let me in on the

A historical look at the 1999 NFL season and the Cleveland Browns’ selection of quarterback Tim Couch.
Cleveland Browns fans are ready for football, and apparently in the recycling mood. One fan decided that the best way to show his support for Johnny Manziel was to convert an old Tim Couch jersey with a bunch of pasted on money signs.

All the talk, speculation and analysis over a guy throwing against air while wearing shoulder pads is about to come to an end. No more guessing about whom the Browns should take in the fifth round because the NFL Draft is finally in sight. While watching the coverage, you’ll probably be hearing about “great value”
