3. What will the play-calling look like?
New Cleveland head coNew Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski rose to fame as an offensive assistant with the Minnesota Vikings. He was there for several years but spent just over one season as their offensive coordinator. This season, there still a question as to whether or not he’s going to call the plays for the Browns or turn it over to his new offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.
So far practice, we’ve had a little glimpse of what might happen as Stefanski said in a recent press conference that Van Pelt has been the one calling the plays first few practices. He did say nothing is set in stone yet which means they could be simply feeling things out to see what works best for them.
"“We are going to work through that,” Stefanski said via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. “With practices, they are scripted. It is really just relaying the play that is already scripted. We are working through that and will announce that when it is appropriate"
This is one of those times when a preseason would come in really handy. Having those exhibition games would be great to allow Alex Van Pelt to get out there and call plays in the live situations against a team other than his own. Unfortunately, all they gonna go off of right now is how it’s going to training camp. And as Stefanski says, that’s mainly scripted stuff.
Thankfully, there’s still plenty of time to decide what to do when Week 1 rolls around.
