coaching search Jim Brown Color Rush Jersey , the Browns are huddling.After conducting interviews with seven candidates in seven days, general manager John Dorsey and members of the team’s search committee, which includes owner Jimmy Haslam, were not expected to meet with anyone on Tuesday and could be evaluating their next move.It’s possible they’ve already found Cleveland’s ninth coach since 1999 or Dorsey and Co. could be waiting to speak with assistants on teams still in the playoffs.To this point, the Browns have met with interim coach Gregg Williams, offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens, former Indianapolis and Detroit coach Jim Caldwell, Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski, Saints tight ends coach Dan Campbell, Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores and Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus.Kitchens has emerged as a favorite along with Stefanski, who according to several reports is returning to the Browns’ facility in Berea, Ohio Jamie Collins Jersey , for a second interview.The Browns are not commenting on any interviews until they are completed.Dorsey had been expected to meet with former Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy, but nothing has been scheduled. Dorsey and McCarthy spent seven years together working with the Packers, and by all accounts, the two men have a solid relationship.McCarthy’s pedigree as a Super Bowl champion and his years working with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers make him appealing. But he’s also interviewed with the Jets and could land in New York.One coach no longer in the mix is New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who said Tuesday “the book is closed” on him interviewing for head coaching jobs.Dorsey has tightly guarded his plans during the search, much the way he did leading into the NFL draft when he stunned experts by selecting quarterback Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick.Obviously, that pick proved fruitful and Browns fans are trusting Dorsey to choose the right coach to pair with Mayfield.At this point, Kitchens, who revamped the team’s offense in the season’s second half, appears to be the front-runner.He’s the people’s choice and players love him.The 44-year-old Kitchens is the most recent candidate to meet with the Browns, formally interviewing with Dorsey and the committee members on Monday. He got a chance to present his long-term vision for what the Browns could become under his guidance. He’s already shown them what he can do in eight games.Once Kitchens took over Cleveland’s offense on Oct. 29, Mayfield took off. He threw 19 of his 27 touchdown passes — a league rookie record — in the final eight games and Mayfield completed 68 percent of his passes.Also Christian Kirksey Color Rush Jersey , Kitchens designed play calls that played to Mayfield’s strengths, allowing the mobile QB to get out of the pocket to make plays and avoid pass rushers.Mayfield was sacked 20 times under coordinator Todd Haley, and just five with Kitchens in charge.Kitchens and Mayfield also formed a close bond, something none of the other candidates could claim when they sat in front of Dorsey and Haslam. That relationship could seal the deal for the Browns as they envision Mayfield being the franchise’s face behind the facemask for the next decade.If Kitchens is hired, it’s a stunning ascension for the former Alabama quarterback, who began the season as Cleveland’s running backs coach following 11 seasons with Arizona. Kitchens endeared himself to his players with a no-nonsense approach, easygoing style and willingness to include them in decisions. While building game plans, he empowered his players by asking them what plays they were most comfortable running.And Mayfield wasn’t the only player who developed under Kitchens as left tackle Greg Robinson and wide receiver Breshad Perriman, cast-offs at recent stops, made significant contributions.The Browns think so much of Kitchens that they blocked other teams from interviewing him.Kitchens began his coaching career in 1999 at tiny Glenville State in West Virginia and was on three other campuses before jumping to the NFL as Dallas’ tight ends coach in 2006.He’s never taken his climb for granted.“I didn’t have a dad as a coach. I didn’t have a starting point in this league,” he said earlier this season. “I grew up the son of a tiremaker at Goodyear Tire and Rubber plant in Gadsden, Alabama. Benjamin E. Mays said those who start behind in the game of life must run faster to catch up https://www.brownsfanshop.com/JC-Tretter-Jersey , and I feel like I’ve been running fast my whole life.” Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on offense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 15 game against the Denver Broncos.QuarterbackPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsThis was just the second time that Baker Mayfield has thrown for less than 200 yards in a game. He came out red hot on his first series, completing passes to Jarvis Landry and Breshad Perriman down the field. Unfortunately, that excitement kept his passes sailing for the rest of the first half.In the second half, the playcalling was structured to settle things down a bit for Mayfield, and it worked. It is unfortunate that his long drive to begin the third quarter ended in a fumble, but he still rebounded in the fourth quarter to help lead the game-winning touchdown drive.Mayfield received a 61.1 grade from PFF. He was 1-of-7 on passes thrown 20+ yards downfield, and only completed one of them (the touchdown pass to Perriman). PFF says that it is the first time since Week 9 that fewer than 50% of his deep passes were deemed “accurate.”Running BackPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsNick Chubb broke a 30-yard run that was called back late in the game due to a holding penalty. So, what did he do on the team’s next drive? Broke a 40-yard run. It’s too bad Cleveland’s couldn’t seal the victory via the ground, but Chubb had another strong game for his rookie campaign. With two games to go, he needs 140 yards rushing to crack the 1,000-yard rushing mark.Per PFF Ozzie Newsome Jersey , “Chubb forced five missed tackles and earned 79 of his 100 yards after contact (3.95 YAC average).” Duke Johnson played in 39% of the snaps, getting 8 touches (4 on the ground and 4 through the air). Dontrell Hilliard received two snaps.Wide ReceiverPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsAntonio Callaway continues to be steady in catching the ball. I know I am a broken record, but I would really love to hear about how this guy made a drastic difference in his play. He went from dropping 2-3 passes every week in the first half of the season, to now in the second half of the season not dropping a single pass (and making difficult catches too). He caught the go-ahead touchdown pass on a quick slant.It seems less likely now that Jarvis Landry will get to 1,000 yards receiving, as he is currently at 827 on the year.The two highest-graded players on offense for the Browns were Rashard Higgins (76.0) and Breshad Perriman (71.1). PFF approves of the job that Perriman has been doing since coming to Cleveland:Tight EndPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsIt was a quiet day for the tight ends in terms of receiving. The most notable thing is that with Orson Charles on injured reserve, Seth DeValve was playing some fullback.Offensive LinePosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsBaker Mayfield was sacked twice, and there were only three hits on the quarterback all game. One of those sacks came off of a miscue when trying to do a fake pass/slight of handoff to the running back. Altogether, it was another great job against a pass-rushing team. Von Miller and Bradley Chubb were limited to one sack.
