Browns Assistant Gets Very Honest About Freddie Kitchens
A Browns assistant coach got very honest about Freddie Kitchens recently.
Cleveland came into the 2019 season with a lot of hype and expectations surrounding the team.
The Browns gave up a lot in a trade with the New York Giants for Odell Beckham Jr.
Team management believed that Beckham, coupled with Baker Mayfield, would turn the squad into a potential playoff contender.
Unfortunately, Mayfield regressed in his second year and started making more mistakes.
Beckham was similarly underwhelming in his first season as a member of the Browns.

Beyond just the poor performance from those two, though, a lot of blame for Cleveland’s disappointing campaign this season has fallen at the feet of Kitchens.
The Browns have some very real issues as it pertains to pass protection, but it is undeniable that bad playcalling has also consistently plagued the team.
As a result, many have speculated that perhaps Cleveland brass will get rid of Kitchens this summer.
According to Browns assistant coach Steve Wilks, that absolutely should not happen.
“Without a doubt, I think Freddie is the right guy for the job,” he told reporters this week.
While it is certainly admirable that Kitchens’ staff supports him so publicly, the on-field struggles his team has had are tough to argue with.
Barring the Browns doing a complete 180 next season, it is hard to envision a scenario where Kitchens remains head coach for too much longer.
