So I’m sure most of us have seen the famous Cleveland quarterback jersey picture that gets updated every time a new QB is served up for slaughter.
With the arrival of Johnny Football to Cleveland I decided it was time to take a look back at the group.
Try and guess who is who!
Have you ever read the Wikipedia article on Browns QBs and took a look at that list? Prepare to feel bad.
Tim Couch – 51 games started. Only QB to start a full season for the Browns (2001), then died.
Ty Detmer – Two starts. Brought on to backup Couch, Couch died, then Detmer died.
Doug Pederson – Eight starts, played when Couch was hurt, then died.
Spergon Wynn – Named Spergon, only had 1 start, a 48-0 loss to Jacksonville. then died.
Kelly Holcomb – 12 starts, then died.
Jeff Garcia – Terrible skin, 10 starts, might be gay if T.O. is right, then he died.
Luke McCown – Four starts, traded to Tampa, then died.
Trent Dilfer – 11 starts, currently on television making us wish we were dead.
Charlie Frye – 19 starts, was eventually benched for Derek Anderson, died of shame.
Derek Anderson – 34 starts, actually had one year of okay play. Then died.
Brady Quinn – 12 starts, now he’s done.
Ken Dorsey – Three starts, forgotten about. Probably dead.
Bruce Gradkowski – One start, very bald, very dead (also backup in Pittsburgh, same diff)
Colt McCoy – 21 starts, broken forever by noted jerk James Harrison, dead.
Jake Delhomme – Four starts, broken forever well before arriving in Cleveland, may have been dead the whole time.
Seneca Wallace – Seven starts, does anyone remember Seneca Wallace anyway?
Thaddeus Lewis – One start, didn’t earn enough to purchase his own gravestone.
Brandon Weeden – 20 starts, decorated WWII veteran.
Jason Campbell – Eight starts, gave fans slight hope for at least 3 total quarters worth of time. Dead inside.
Brian Hoyer – The true hometown hero. Given a chance so few have. Came in and took over the field, won some games. The Browns may have found a diamond in the rough. Then he died.
Johnny Manziel – Rough prediction: he will die.
