Daily Dawg Tags: Cleveland Browns introducing Kevin Stefanski causes ‘numb’ feeling
The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including one writer feeling numb listening to another coach introduction
Nothing has caused as much frustration among the Cleveland Browns fanbase as their endless coaching search has. On Tuesday, they introduced Kevin Stefanski — who is their fifth coach in the past eight seasons.
While there are reasons to feel good about their latest coach, there were reasons to feel just as good about the past four. But none were the right hire, nor were they given time to develop — except for Hue Jackson, who was one that shouldn’t have been afforded so much time.
One writer described his feelings about the whole introductory press conference, saying he was ‘numb’. And he believes he was not alone.

Cleveland Browns have to stop this cycle of embarrassing coaching changes — Terry Pluto, Cleveland.com
"“For the fifth time in eight years, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam had a press conference to introduce a new coach.That’s why I probably wasn’t alone in feeling a little numb listening to Kevin Stefanski outline his ideas for reviving the Browns.”"
It’s completely unfair to Kevin Stefanski, but Pluto was probably right that many were numb to this press conference. While Stefanski preached a lot of quality beliefs, the fact is we have all heard this same spiel over and over. Jimmy Haslam needs to exercise patience this time and allow Stefanski to grow, otherwise, we could be here again soon. Like always.
Cleveland Browns: Ranking the 20 best former players since 1999 — Chad Port, Factory of Sadness
"“The criteria for the list are pretty simple; Pro Bowl appearances, helping achieve winning seasons (all two of them), that one time they went to the playoffs, and lastly the overall performance of the player despite the team around them. This list is going to be a sad reminder at how bad this franchise has been when you see some of the names on it. Many only had one or two good years, or a single Pro Bowl to their name.”"
There are some pretty interesting names on this list such as Joe Haden, T.J. Ward, and Tim Couch. Fun trip down memory lane, even if it made you sad to see a few of them leave.
What Kevin Stefanski means when he says he wants to be the Browns’ ‘point guard’ — Andrew Gribble, ClevelandBrowns.com
"“Stefanski had just laid it out, explaining why his goal was to become the “point guard” for a Browns organization that is striving for the kind of alignment it believes will lead to better success on Sundays in the fall for years to come.”"
It was an interesting analogy, but it made sense. Stefanski understands there’s a ton of talent on his roster and his job is simple — put the play-makers in a position to make plays.
Browns will need to trim players to sign free agents
According to Elliot Kennel, the Browns salary cap isn’t in as good of shape as previously thought. That means they could end up cutting some players in order to sign any free agents this offseason.
