What a QB tale they've told
By Pat McManamon
The number 20 is special in many circles.
The 20th anniversary means a little more than the 16th, and a young man or woman who turns 20 feels a little more "adult."
Jason Campbell's play at quarterback is a key reason why the Browns are optimistic about making the AFC playoffs.
So when the Browns name their 20th starting quarterback since 1999 -- the year the team returned from a three-year hiatus -- it's worth taking a trip down memory lane (the screams in the background are from Browns fans whose memories are being jogged ... feel free to offer appropriate sympathies).
Ty Detmer -- The plan to have him hold the fort lasted for one blowout loss, in the season opener against Pittsburgh.
Tim Couch -- The original No. 1 choice, had a couple of good years but not enough.
Spergon Wynn -- Chris Palmer was lobbied to play him by the front office, and he produced two first downs in one game.
