Will Browns Ever Find Their Franchise QB?


If there is one thing the Cleveland Browns haven’t consistently had and that is a Quarterback. This Sunday Kevin Hogan will be the 28th QB to start for the Browns since 1999. Hogan was drafted in the 5th round by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016. Later that year the Chiefs released him, and the Browns signed him to practice squad. The Browns later signed him to the active roster and Hogan has been working his way up ever since.

QB list since 1999:
1) Tim Couch
2) Ty Detmer
3) Doug Pederson
4) Spergon Wynn
5) Kelly Holcomb
6) Jeff Garcia
7) Luke McCown
8) Trent Dilfer
9) Charlie Fry
10) Derek Anderson
11) Brady Quinn
12) Ken Dorsey
13) Bruce Gradkowski
14) Colt McCoy
15) Jake Delhomme
16) Seneca Wallace
17) Brandon Weeden
18) Thad Lewis
19) Brian Hoyer
20) Jason Campbell
21) Connor Shaw
22) Johnny Manziel
23) Josh McCown
24) Austin Davis
25) Robert Griffen III
26) Cody Kessler
27) DeShone Kizer
28) Kevin Hogan

During that long stretch of quarterbacks, Tim Couch won the Browns the most games. Couch was 22-37 which is not very good at all. During that stretch of time, the Browns have drafted 10 of those 28 QB’s that they thought was the answer. The most recent QB drafted was DeShone Kizer, who was recently benched for new starter Hogan. Since 1999 the Browns are 88-205, which is including their 0-5 start to this year. Let’s just say the Browns are a long way away from contending for a Championship. It doesn’t seem like Kizer is the long-term answer either. Will they draft ANOTHER QB next year? Only time will tell……
