Cleveland Browns coach Kevin Stefanski

I wrote this other day regarding the head coach of the Cleveland Browns: NFL: Not For Long, and right now, the mantra conjures up the name of Kevin Stefanski.

Look no further than Matt Nagy. He was once considered a smart hire. Now, it looks like the Bears will be coach shopping in January.

This isn’t a call for Stefanski to go on the hot seat. Maybe he’s just having a bad year. That said, his stock is down as his team is unable to confront adversity under his watch.

Week after week, he talks at his press conferences about needing to do better. You can only say it so much. Eventually you have to start doing better, or we are start to wonder why you’re not able to get it done.

After winning Coach of the Year, he’s been brought back to earth. His supposed high powered offense has scored more than 17 points just once in the past seven games.

In the strange Covid season, Stefanski had the Browns humming, averaging 25.5 points per game. This season? Try 21. 2 per contest…and that number could potentially sink lower if he doesn’t fix things at the Bye.

Additionally, his team is undisciplined. Cleveland’s 85 penalties are the fourth-most in the league. They’ve cost themselves 771 in penalty yards, which is third most.

Next. 6 players Browns need to sign before Ravens rematch. dark

Stefanski has some capital so while we’re complaining, this abysmal stat isn’t a headline like it was when Freddie Kitchens had the same problem.
