It has been 30 months now since quarterback Tim Couch, the first overall player selected in the 1999 NFL draft, threw a pass in an NFL regular-season game.

Unfortunately for Couch, a good guy cursed by rotten luck and a bum right shoulder, he will have to wait at least 14 months more to maybe have the opportunity again.
