Womens Jabrill Peppers Jersey , but change was so badly needed in Cleveland that the charade had to finally be put to sleep. Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam had afforded Hue Jackson a benefit of the doubt rope longer than anyone has ever had. They made sure they did things that way so they’d avoid more backlash for yet another organizational upheaval.That benefit expired after a 25th-consecutive road loss, a loss in which Jackson and new, now former offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s offense again failed to achieve any kind of competency.There’s something really disheartening to be said for the level of inept football we were still witnessing three years into Jackson’s Browns era. The entirety of NFL history had never seen a coach yield such poor results as Jackson’s 3-36-1 record, including 3-13-1 in games decided by one score or less. Other coaches have had bad rosters. They have had rookie quarterbacks. They have had tear-down and burnt-to-ashes rosters that weren’t expected or intended to contend. Those teams still won games. They had an effective plan. They got better. Some still fired the coaches despite those improvements. But the Haslams didn’t want to do that. They wanted to leave no doubt.There was coaching happening in those situations that inspired confidence that those coaches had the personal and football acumens to lead a group of men into a collective and successful enterprise. If they didn’t, they were gone.But not in Cleveland. The Browns ownership shied away from making any impulse reactions to any isolated problems they saw from their head coach over a short timeframe. They wanted to see Jackson’s plan come to life, but it unfortunately never did. The same problems persisted, and the miserable results on Sundays became unjustifiable.There’s a common misconception—supported by the Haslams’ inaction for so long after taking swift corrective actions in the past—that organizational continuity is necessary to win in the NFL.If only teams would just stick with one guy long enough to see whether he has what it takes, then they can truly see what they need to from a coach.But, friends, that time had already passed. That’s the ship that sailed weeks ago, had been taking torpedoes to the hull every week, and finally sank to the bottom of Lake Erie in Week 8.Continuity for continuity’s sake, that’s where we were at.Despite the realities, we’re drawn to resist change. Many believe that anything is better than changing head coaches every season, which perpetuates the unknown feelings brought on by that change. Loyalty, passion, and stability are nothing to turn your nose up at, after all. There’s nothing wrong with believing those are true and worthwhile values.Consistency is a good thing Authentic Jarvis Landry Jersey , it really is.But what feels appropriate and might be valid isn’t always correct in every circumstance. This NFL coaching task isn’t an easy endeavor. That’s why so many fail, then are re-cycled and given new settings only to fail again, much like quarterbacks. A head coach receives the highest scrutiny, as they should. The Los Angeles Rams defied this conservative and conventional wisdom. They moved and hired an unknown but young and promising head coach, and in two seasons he transformed them from talented middler into a Super Bowl contender. Everything Sean McVay does is as non-conventional as the decision was to hire him to replace veteran Jeff Fisher.McVay’s best quality? He’s not afraid to take chances. But more importantly, he knows when to make those calculated risks that stray from the norm. He knows how to relate to his players but also hold them accountable to his standards. He makes winning fun, not the daily grind to get there. How are NFL teams going to continue the same patterns and expect to have any kind of competitive edge? They don’t. There needs to be innovation. There needs to be discipline. There needs to be a belief in the plan, and buy-in from all the players. Liking a guy isn’t enough.It’s refreshing that this organization has finally woken up to this reality and decided to shed these archaic dinosaurs to move on to this new age. But in reality, it isn’t a new age at all. It’s what has always been done by winning football teams. Players don’t overtly love Bill Belichick for his personality, they love him because he excels at his job.He wins. He helps them win. And they love him for that above all else.Arguing about whose at fault for the Browns not measuring up to their demonstrated caliber while blaming everyone but the coaching staff eventually became an untenable position. Plainly, it got old. This change had to be now. After falling to 2-6-1 with a tough remaining schedule, the future takes precedence, and that future looks brighter now than it did 24 hours ago.Jackson seems like a great guy, and he was a successful coordinator for a period, but head football coaches in the NFL have to be more. They can’t just be like-able guys who make people feel good to be around them.In 2018, Jackson inherited a much better NFL roster with viable and competitive players and experienced coordinators, yet the results were nearly the same. It wasn’t going to get better with time, it’d have continued much the same or gotten worse. Keeping the status quo wouldn’t have fixed the problems we saw every week. The penalties and lapses weren’t going to stop. The game plan wasn’t going to evolve.The innovation that’s needed wasn’t going to suddenly emerge three years into this thing.The time lost with Jackson is a sunk cost at this point http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/trevon-coley-jersey-authentic , and it unquestionably became time to make the appropriate fixes sooner than later to get the Browns headed on an upward trajectory. By making this decision now, the organization can get a head start on finding individuals they believe fit the mold of this new age NFL. They will look for coaches who can inspire confidence through innovation.Dorsey needs to seek out these coaches who can better identify weaknesses and plan around them. But most importantly, he needs to find people who will hold themselves and their players accountable.It’s not an easy task, but the search begins now, and Gregg Williams has the job of keeping the ship afloat until they find the right guys to do it.Things might get ugly, but at least it’ll be a fun ride. Grab some popcorn.10 things to watch in the Browns’ Week 4 match-up and the NFL Welcome to Week 4 of the NFL! This weekly column includes a lot of loose ends leading up to Sunday’s game.Pokorny’s 10 Things to Watch in Week 4 - Browns and the NFL1. Respect Around the NFL: The Browns getting that first win last week over the Jets was a big step forward. No longer does that lingering thought exist in other teams’ minds that “we can’t be the team that loses to the Browns.” Cleveland shot up in the power rankings. Pro Football Focus predicted the Browns to win in nearly a clean sweep among their analysts:It feels fantastic. We have suffered through plenty of miserable seasons, but in particular, the first two years under Hue Jackson’s watch tested our patience more than ever before. An awesome comeback by Baker Mayfield was all I needed last week to believe in this team again. Even if Mayfield ends up having some rookie woes, he can stay in games with this defense the Browns have — can you believe the most points they’ve allowed in a single game is 21 points?2. Color Rush Uniforms: Who else thought the color rush uniforms the Browns debuted in Week 3 against the Jets were awesome? It really makes me look forward to 2020, when the team revamps the current uniforms yet again. As far as wearing the color rush uniforms again, you won’t have to wait long for them again. According to Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 the Fan, Cleveland will wear them two more times in 2018: in Week 5 against the Baltimore Ravens at home, and then one more time later in the season.3. Oakland’s Pass Rush is Non-Existent: Imagine if the Browns, a few years from now, just said, “Sure, we will trade Myles Garrett away,” while having no one even close on the roster to replace him. That’s what the Raiders did with Khalil Mack Womens Darren Fells Jersey , and their pass rush has suffered across the board.Oakland’s defense has 3 sacks, an NFL-low. Oakland only generates a sack on 3.26% of pass attempts, also an NFL-low. To compare, the Browns generate a sack on 8.41% of pass attempts.Per PFF data compiled by the Buffalo News, Oakland has generated pressure on 19 of 98 dropbacks in 2018 (19.4%), a mark that is the worst in the NFL. To compare, the Browns generate pressure 28.8% of the time.DE Bruce Irvin was once a decent pass-rushing threat with the Seahawks. He talked about the team’s current struggles in that department, but fans have questioned the lack of effort he gives on gameday:4. Haley & Hue - Trick Play Discrepancy: I’m not trying to make something out of nothing here — I just find this amusing, that is all. In Hue Jackson’s post-game press conference right after beating the Jets, he was asked about Cleveland’s successful two-point conversion looking similar to the Eagles’ “Philly Special.” Here was his response:And then here is what offensive coordinator Todd Haley said this week, when asked if the play was borrowed from the Eagles:5. Lots of Chances: Browns fans are stoked about the win over the Jets, but this team must continue making progress. The grind doesn’t stop here. Just think about some of the breaks that Cleveland had go their way against the Jets. Cleveland’s first two-point try failed before the aforementioned “Cleveland Special.” The league reportedly apologized to the Jets for the bad call.Cleveland also had the Jets drop a would-be interception on Baker Mayfield’s first drive and recovered a fumble by Mayfield; not turning it over either time resulted in 3 points. In the fourth quarter, Duke Johnson’s fumble was somehow recovered by Rashard Higgins, but that could’ve left the Browns’ comeback just short if the Jets had recovered it.One big step toward becoming a winning team, though, is that you do prevail despite these types of things. Whether things go your way or not, you still play your game and finish in the best way possible.6. The Browns Have Avoided Penalties: The talk of the NFL these first three weeks has been the awful roughing the passer penalties that have been called. Through three weeks, though Youth Duke Johnson Jr Jersey , the Browns have actually been pretty good in that department, as defensive coordinator Gregg Williams points out:Through three weeks, the Browns have had 20 penalties total called on them, which is below the league average. They have been especially better the past two weeks, where they only have 9 total penalties. 2 of those were on offense, 3 on defense, and 4 on special teams.7. Draw Play Dave Adds Baker Mayfield: Shout out to Draw Play Dave, who always does great NFL illustrations and just came out with one that adds QB Baker Mayfield to the long list of Browns quarterbacks since 1999:8. Kicker Concerns: One big factor to think about with Cleveland is that kicker Greg Joseph is still very much an uncertain. Here is what special teams coordinator Amos Jones said about him this week:9. NFL Week 4 Picks: I went 10-6 in Week 3, improving to 29-17-2 on the season. Here are my Week 4 picks.10. Predicting the Browns’ Week 4 Inactives: I predict the following players will be inactive for Sunday’s game against the Raiders:Projected Inactives: QB Tyrod Taylor, WR Rod Streater, TE Seth DeValve, DE Devaroe Lawrence, LB James Burgess, LB D’Juan Hines, and CB Tavierre Thomas.I think Taylor will be inactive because of his back issues. Streater is still the newest receiver; he won’t be needed on gameday when Damion Ratley and Derrick Willies can already play. I’d like to see DeValve active over Orson Charles, but don’t know if he’s healthy enough yet. Burgess is out, and Hines was just signed as insurance.
