NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio -- Tony Timoteo and his wife are proud of the Halloween display they put up outside their Charles Road home in North Ridgeville. But they wouldn't mind never having to put it up again.

"We are giant Browns fans," Timoteo said. "We were looking for something to do, specifically sports related. My wife proposes the idea that we do a graveyard for all the old starting quarterbacks since 1999."

Timoteo loved her idea. The graveyard first went up last Halloween.

"Unfortunately, we had to add some new headstones this year," Timoteo said.

"We really hope that we find our guy," Timoteo said. "We're giant Johnny Manziel fans. We're hoping he's the guy we can cap it off with."

But the Timoteos know what the Browns' record shows. If history holds true, the team will keep needing to draft new quarterbacks and keep starting new guys.

If that's the case, the Timoteos will continue to add to their quarterback graveyard.

"The biggest hope is that won't be funny anymore," Timoteo said.

"The joke will die when we finally get our guy, like a lot of other NFL teams, where he sticks and he's there for four, five, six, seven or eight years," he said. "But until that happens the graveyard will stay up."
