Expect the Cleveland Browns offense to make a big jump in 2020.

The Cleveland Browns embark on 2020 flying under the radar. Not many power rankings have those orange helmets in their top 15. Many national pundits are likely jaded by picking the Browns to end their playoff drought a season ago, so after the 2019 flop, prognosticators are moving forward with a “Buyer Beware” attitude.

That’s just fine by me. Remember when no one expected anything from this downtrodden franchise. That’s part of the reason 2018 was so much fun. When Gregg Williams took over and the offense started to hum, the Browns went 5-3 in the final eight games and all of a sudden became the “It” team to watch.

Well, Williams is long gone, and while Freddie Kitchens lasted one season longer, he’s become a memory, too. The resurrection of the offense may be simple as saying it’s all about Kevin Stefanski, the new first-year head coach.

From the 50,000-foot view, that’s true. If Stefanski trends toward Kitchens, the Browns will stink and we’ll likely be scouting quarterbacks through mock drafts come next winter.

Here’s three reasons the offense will be resurrected under Stefanski, reminding the Dawg Pound in the process, of the promise we saw in 2020.
