Since some of us are still in "new head coach press conference analysis" mode, I figured I'd check out Kevin Stefanski's press conference today.
Freddie Kitchens was a guy who had one year of experience as an offensive coordinator
before the Browns named him head coach over a locker room full of big egos. He was in over his head, and they fired him after one season.
So what do the Browns do? They hire a guy with one year of experience as an offensive coordinator
to be the new head coach over that same locker room of big egos.
Stefanski seems like a nice guy, but he sounds nervous -- short of breath, dry mouth. He's stumbling over words. He says he "wants to be the point guard for this organization. I want to bring the ball up, but then I want to share the basketball and let someone else get an easy bucket." (I don't even know what that means for a head coach of a football team.)
He said he's going to take his time putting together a staff (which doesn't seem wise on January 14), and he didn't rule out that he'd be calling the offensive plays for the Browns in 2020. His offense did not look good in the Vikings playoff loss to the 49ers (which should give us terrible flashbacks to Shurmur).
Of course, it's a press conference, so no one can predict how he'll turn out. But my impression of this guy from his press conference is that Mayfield will eat him for lunch.
At least most of us got a nice charge out of Judge's press conference. It felt good to feel good again for a few moments. I don't know how Browns fans can muster any enthusiasm whatsoever anymore for that team. This guy will probably be canned in two years.
And they still don't have a GM.
