The wheels have begun to fall off the 2022 season for the Cleveland Browns as they fall to 2-5, are there coaching changes on the horizon?

Any time a season starts to go south in the first two months, people will start asking what changes must be made. One of the first reactions is to look at the coaching staff and ask if they are the right group to get the job done. With theCleveland Browns at 2-5 let’s look at the most essential and criticized coaches and if they need to be replaced.

Browns special teams coordinator- Mike Priefer

The Browns’ special teams units are again some of the worst in the NFL through the injury to Jakeem Grant in training camp changed the unit’s trajectory. Kicker Cade York and punter Corey Bojorquez have been major upgrades over what the Browns had last year and aren’t the problem.

But just like the past two seasons the coverage units are not good and seem to be getting worse.

There seem to always be a few plays on special teams that negatively impact the Browns each and every week since Mike Priefer has been the coordinator. At this point, it isn’t crazy to question what Priefer has them working on each week when the same issues persist week after week.

There are blow coverage assignments on kickoff and punts as well as awful decisions to run out kickoff from the endzone and constantly be stopped before the 25-yard line. The Browns should fire Mike Priefer during the bye week because there’s no reason to continue doing the same things that aren’t working.
