    Talking Tim Couch Visits Packers Again :)

    Browns QB Couch visits Packers

    NFL.com wire reports

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (April 7, 2004) -- Cleveland Browns quarterback Tim Couch would like to play for Green Bay if he gets the chance.

    With the Packers shopping for a possible heir to Brett Favre, Couch had permission from the Browns to meet with Packers coaches and staff April 6-7.

    The Browns signed former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia this spring.

    "I just wanted to come here and see the facilities, meet the coaching staff and get just a quick orientation of the offense," Couch said on the Packers' Web site. "Everything that I wanted to hear and everything that I wanted to see here was covered. ...

    "I think this system fits me really well. I've always wanted to run the West Coast system. I always thought it would be a good fit for me, so I'm really looking forward to it if I get a chance to play here."

    The Packers and the 26-year-old Couch first would have to come to terms on a new contract and then make a deal with Cleveland.

    Packers pro personnel director Reggie McKenzie said the team has an interest in acquiring Couch, but other factors would have to be worked out.

    Couch said the chance to start for the Packers could outweigh the negative of serving as a backup for the immediate future.

    "I have a lot of experience in the league, but I'm still young. I have time to learn the game, sit back and watch a guy like Brett, and be ready to go when I get my chance," he said. "I'm used to playing and starting. But I think this is a unique situation. This is Brett Favre and he's one of the all-time greats. He's one of my all-time favorite players."

    Couch has made 59 starts in his five years in the NFL. He has completed 59.8 percent of his passes (1,025 of 1,714) for 11,131 yards and 64 touchdowns, with 67 interceptions.

    "I'm really looking forward to a fresh start," Couch said. "I'm looking for a change of scenery and this is a place I think I can be more successful, be on a better team and do some better things."

    Doug Pederson, an unrestricted free agent, has been the Packers' No. 2 quarterback the past two seasons, with 2002 fifth-round draft pick Craig Nall holding the third spot.

    The thing that he will have to understand is that he will be behind favre for at least the two years if not longer.. I dont know if he minds playing behind the best current qb in the game

    Jay, From what i have read and from MB talk Couch understands the situation in front of him... I think Brett Favre has had a huge role in Tim Couch's interest in going to the Pack and the Packers decison to go after Tim...Favre likes him and he wants to groom him to take over the franchise when he retires...

    Couch is a lot like Favre....Southern,Tough,Strong arm that can make all the throws if the line will give him more than 1 second to throw the ball...lol

    One thing you Packer fans will see is that Couch will not quit and will lay it on the line every game he plays for you....

    Couch is also a great 4th Quarter QB who has already amassed a big amount of come from behind wins...

    "There are also reports that Favre can't bend his thumb at all right now and that has sherman a bit worried with Peterson as backup to Favre....I think thats another reason why they want to get a deal done with Couch...They want someone with game time experience....Have you heard about this"

    huh....

    Tim Couch is a team player and Favre and Sherman seem to really like Couch so why would he be a bad fit?

    Rivers draft stock has been rising so he's likely gone by 25. J.P. Losman is as much of a wildcard as Couch is. I'll take my chances with a veteran NFL QB. The important thing is Favre seems to like him. That makes me believe this could be a good thing for my Packers. I've never been a huge Couch fan but I'm beginning to like the idea of him being a Packer.

    Warrior , I think this is perfect for Couch...He has a huge heart and is willing to learn....He has more confidence than any QB i have seen in a long time...He has a fire in him to win like Elway Favre & Montana and he just will not quit....

    It is great IMO that he will be able to back up favre because he has never really had a chance to learn from a real Pro QB!!!

    Couch was a FB prodigy coming out of High School....Best Player in the Nation and had a scolarship to go play college FB anywhere he wanted - Miami, Florida, Fl State, Ohio St, Penn St Etc....He chose UK (Kentucky) A rinky dink football program that was a total disaster under Bill Currys rein....Now Thats Loyalty

    Couch and Hal Mummys Fun and Gun Air Raid offense turned UK's FB Program around because Couch had some protection and Mummy believed in Couch....Couch set many many UK records and some NCAA FB records also while at UK (See my next post)

    Couch has never had a a real chance in cleveland because of no O-Line support or Running Game...(Packers have both)
    Butch Davis and Bruce Aries Dink and Duck offense didnt help much to improve Couch either....(Packers run the West Coast Offense!!) :)

    Couch will be a good fit and i cant wait to see Couch get some proper coaching and run the West Coast offense....IMO this is the best thing that could happen to Couch....
