The Cleveland Browns were absolutely torched by the New England Patriots on Sunday. They had no chance and didn’t look like they had a plan for anything New England threw Cleveland’s way. During the postgame interview, Myles Garrett was vocal with his displeasure with the coaching staff. Kevin Stefanski finally responded.
According to Zac Jackson, “Stefanski says he’s spoken to Myles Garrett about Garrett’s postgame comments.” The Browns head coach “admits ‘we didn’t have a good enough plan’ among other issues.” At the end of the day, Cleveland was a hot mess and the coaching staff deserved some criticism.
Stefanski says he’s spoken to Myles Garrett about Garrett’s postgame comments. Understands “frustration” but won’t share details. Admits “we didn’t have a good enough plan” among other issues.

Simultaneously, the players are at fault too. The Browns lacked execution on Sunday and looked like they didn’t belong on an NFL football field. It was an embarrassing display and the entire team, in general, deserves to be criticized.
It’s nice to see Kevin Stefanski take the initiative and actually communicate with Myles Garrett. The Browns have to get on the same page and opening up the communication between the players and coaches is a nice start.
Myles Garrett: We didn’t make the adjustments on the sideline or when we had time to.

Hopefully, the Browns can get back on track. The AFC North is a wide-open division and Cleveland is still very much in the playoff race. If Kevin Stefanski can get things back under control, this franchise could go on a little run late in the regular season.
We’ll see what happens though. The Browns have an opportunity to get right in Week 11 as they take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
