Two weeks https://www.brownsfanshop.com/hats , two ties.OK, let’s get this out of the way now: Yes, the NFL is fit to be tied.Fit tighter than most folks might think, too.In a slopfest of an opener, the Steelers and Browns drew 21-21 . The first game of the season often can be messy and painful to watch, particularly when so many key players don’t take the field much, if at all, in the preseason. This one was all of that, even if a tie was a big step in the right direction for Cleveland, which lost 31 of 32 contests entering this season.Yet the Browns sounded more angry with the deadlock than did the Steelers.“There’s no way that we shouldn’t have won this game,” safety Jabrill Peppers said. “We didn’t win. It is all about winning. Nobody cares about draws or ties, whatever you guys call it. We were in a (position) to win this game countless times. We just have to make the plays.”A week later, in a more artistic affair — minus the ugly kicking by the now-released Daniel Carlson for Minnesota — the Vikings and Packers finished 29-29. Like the other tie, it was a divisional game. Unlike the other one, both of these clubs should be in the playoff hunt.So assessing a draw left them perplexed.“I don’t know what to feel after a tie,” Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins said. “It’s a unique place to be and proud of the way that the whole team — when I say the team, the coaching staff, the players, the support staff — the way everybody stayed in it and fought. There were times where we thought we should have won it, there were times the Packers feel like they should have won it. And it was a great game, and unfortunately we didn’t get the win.”Green Bay’s reactions were similar.“It’s gross Cleveland Browns Hoodie ,” kicker Mason Crosby offered. “I don’t like it. Obviously, you hate losing. A tie is just weird. You just don’t get them a lot.”Ah, but you just might this season. Two in two weeks could be a harbinger.The NFL reduced the length of overtime from 15 minutes to 10 before last season. Stunningly, there were no ties.But the odds of more results without a winner are vastly increased. And league executives understood that when they made the change.“What it came down to was really a player safety discussion,” said Dean Blandino, head of the league’s officiating department when the rule change was made in 2017 and now an NFL analyst for Fox. “The year prior to change, you had several games that went the full overtime periods and ended in a tie, or a game ended on a field goal at the last second. That’s an additional however many plays in that game. We had one instance when a team had to come back on Thursday night and play, so that’s a very short week for rest and then playing again.“So we asked, ‘Are we pushing our players to play an extra quarter and having to come back, creating a chance for more injuries?’“Yes the potential for more ties would be there in a shorter overtime, but the members of the (competition) committee and the owners didn’t think a tie was necessarily a bad thing.”Maybe yes, maybe no. But are the alternatives worthwhile?The NFL could adopt the college rule (won’t ever happen), which detractors have said is like having a home run derby decide a tied baseball game; too much of the natural game is eliminated. So is the sudden death element, although even that has been diluted by the current NFL overtime rule in which the team receiving the kickoff must score a touchdown for the game to end immediately.Not that we are advocating for getting rid of that and returning to the coin toss being even more instrumental in deciding a game.The option of continuing to play until there is a winner doesn’t work in the regular season for a variety of reasons. Player safety — player exhaustion — is the main reason, but there are broadcast considerations on a busy Sunday afternoon, too. And fan comfort, particularly in Lambeau or Soldier Field or Gillette Stadium in December.The NFL also senses that with the shorter overtime, teams will attack more during the extra period. That seems to have been the case at Lambeau Field last Sunday. In the other tie, play was so chaotic it was difficult to tell if either side had a plan for winning.“There were a lot of things discussed and on the table,” Blandino said of competition committee meetings about overtime. “This goes back if you look prior to 2012 https://www.brownsfanshop.com/James-Burgess-Jersey , the coin toss was such a big part of OT. We had less ties under that system; just, look at the stats from 1994-2011, and there were only four ties. Since 2012 and the chance to have both teams getting possession, in the next five years, we had five ties in that period.”And in 2018, we already have two. Get ready for more. The Cleveland Browns officially announced the hiring of their coordinators on Monday, along with who most of the assistant coaches on offense will be. Here is list of all of the coaches that have either been confirmed hires, along with a quick snapshot of which teams the coaches were last with.Head Coach: Freddie Kitchens (Cleveland)OffenseOffensive Coordinator: Todd Monken (Tampa Bay)Quarterbacks: Ryan Lindley (Cleveland)Running Backs/Run Game Coordinator: Stump Mitchell (NY Jets)Wide Receivers: Adam Henry* (Cleveland)Tight Ends: (Vacant)Offensive Line/Associate Head Coach: James Campen (Green Bay)Offensive Quality Control: Jim Dray (Stanford)Offensive Quality Control: Tyler Tettleton (NY Jets)Special Assistant to the Head Coach: Jody Wright (UAB)Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsThe offensive coaching staff is nearly complete, with the lone vacancy coming at the tight end position. That could be what the club was interviewing Joe Philbin for. Monken is a hot hire for the Browns, and was reportedly “this close” to being the Jets or Packers head coaching hire. Therefore, if Cleveland’s offense continues to rise in 2019, there is a decent chance that Monken becomes a head coach in 2020. As Ryan Alton points out, though, that is OK — he and Kitchens can help each other out this year as they put together an innovative offense. If he leaves next year, the experience will have benefited both Monken and Kitchens.Lindley was hired as the Browns’ running backs coach last October, replacing Kitchens after the whole firing of Hue Jackson and Todd Haley happened. The lateral move to quarterbacks coach made sense, as he had ties to Kitchens by playing for him not too long ago with the Arizona Cardinals. The other offensive coach who appears to have been retained was Henry, who GM John Dorsey praised last offseason for the positive influence he expected him to have on rookie receiver Antonio Callaway.Campen was the longest-tenured assistant coach for the Packers and is well-respected around the NFL. His addition was labeled as a major score for the Browns, as Packers fans were surprised to see that he wasn’t retained. He has some experience working with current Browns center JC Tretter, who is coming off his best season with a pro. Players may have loved Bob Wylie, but with the reputation that Campen has Jim Brown Color Rush Jersey , this should be an upgrade.Mitchell worked with Kitchens in Arizona as a running backs coach. For the past two years, he has been the Jets’ running backs coach — in Cleveland, he will have the added title of “run game coordinator.” Going based on when Kirby Wilson used to have that title, that means he should be working with some of the tight ends and offensive linemen as well.Dray, a former blocking tight end for the Browns, also used to play with the Cardinals when Kitchens was a coach there. Tettleton is a younger assistant, while Wright’s role is unclear other than being a lower-level assistant to the head coach.DefenseDefensive Coordinator: Steve Wilks (Arizona)Defensive Line: TBDLinebacker: TBDDefensive Backs: TBDPhoto by Norm Hall/Getty ImagesThe next round of hires for the Browns will undoubtedly come on defense, as Wilks tries to fill out his staff. His one-and-done year in Arizona doesn’t discredit his ability to be a defensive coordinator, a role he thrived in with the Carolina Panthers. And, unlike Monken, it seems less likely that Wilks will be called upon soon for another head coaching gig.Wilks will likely get his pick at a defensive staff. It was rumored that the Browns were initially holding on to defensive line coach Clyde Simmons and defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker, but we will wait until the rest of Wilks’ staff is known before listing them.Special TeamsSpecial Teams Coordinator: Mike Priefer (Minnesota)Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty ImagesWe still have to figure out Priefer’s assistant special teams coach, but he comes to Cleveland with a lot of experience...and some controversy. He actually turned down a contract offer to return to Minnesota; he wanted to come to Cleveland for the change, similar to how Chris Tabor left Cleveland last offseason for Chicago. He will be an upgrade over Amos Jones.If you’re curious about the controversy with Priefer, click here. The public relations blow probably will not be that high, considering he was employed by the Vikings for several years after that.Joshua Cribbs, a special teams assistant last year, was let go.---Who else would you like to see land in Cleveland as an assistant, Browns fans?
