  • The Herd with Colin Cowherd

    Will Freddie Kitchens still be the Browns' head coach at the end of this season?

      Well, Colin, you might be right. On the other hand, you might be dead wrong. Kitchens, rather than being the mistake you paint him as, might be the new direction this team is taking. Listen to yourself. You're towing the NFL line. There's still plenty of fans who think the "indefinite" suspension wasn't about the actual incident, but the media's reaction to it. You said it several times. The NFL was "embarrassed." The counter argument is, Who Cares? Not only did you have Freddie's shirt, you had one of the owners wearing Garrett's number. What does that tell you? Let me explain it. Cleveland's flipping off the NFL. Now... Is that wise? Maybe not. Does it set a tone? Absolutely!

      I'm not thrilled with Kitchens' performance on the football field thus far, but if we go 8-8 or 9-7, it's a vast improvement on previous years. Plus, despite all the hype, courtesy of national media types, this team is in Year Two of a rebuild. Year T-W-O! You say we're dysfunctional. Maybe. On the other hand, this may be a team carving out an identity for itself as it puts those pieces together. You see everything as the glass half empty... We'll see.

      Your problem, bottom line, is that you don't like us. If we were 12-4, you still wouldn't like us. You don't like the owners, you don't like the general manager, you don't like the quarterback, you don't like the team, you don't like the city, you don't like the fans, and win or lose, that's never going to change. You won't admit that of course, but it's true, and it taints every word out of your mouth about us.

      Well... The feeling's mutual, but at least we admit it.

          Maybe Freddie Kitchen isn’t the real Coach, see if there’s another athletic Coach telling Freddy what strategies to play. 😏

                    As a Patriots fan I have to disagree with that.....while wr is indeed a problem the bigget problem is the running game. Last season the running game was dominant, at times this year it has been virtually nonexistent.

                      This wide reciever thing is such nitpicky, embarrassing, nonsense. They're the most overrated position in the game and will never be anything more than icing on the cake.

                              I think they fire kitchens if they get blown out but if they're competitive don't be surprised if they keep him around for another few days before the season ends.

                                Pittsburgh did start it and then chased Myles Garret. If this was on the street, Rudolph would be in court for assault, not Myles Garret would be cleared of all charges for Self Defense. There is a lot of proof of how many players the Steelers have put in the hospital.

                                      I wonder if they should’ve just left it alone and named Gregg Williams the permanent guy and then retained Freddie as the OC.

                                              And their defense isn't quite as good as it's made out to be... don't get me wrong, they're good but not dominant. The Browns ran up and down the field with Chubb.. he just couldn't hold the ball. A good offensive team will be able to score on the Pats in the playoffs.

                                                    Brady can absolutely play and those people talking about a cliff are not watching the games. Is he 2007 Brady, nope. Is he end of the road Peyton Manning, nope. He's 42 and still the best playmaker on the team with Edleman and White. they've had oline issues, WR issues, and as mentioned for no plan for Gronk. So same ole same ole in NE, they leave Brady exposed to work with people who are not the most talented and uplift them rather than maximize what they have left on the closk with Brady and a solid D.

                                                          Colin, I believe Dorsey already told Freddie Basement he's not coming back. If you look at his coaching and behavior, he's going out his way. What people are missing is that the players have already quit on Freddie a long time ago. It originally started when Chubb was a few yards short of 1000 yards for his 1st season, and Freddie never put him back in. That was the start. 2nd was the way he treated WR Higgins, who helped the Browns tremendously. For some unknown reason, just wouldn't play him. Then the MUTINY started. They were supposed to be a team, but he wasn't doing things in a collective team approach. Now insert stupid penalties and weird injuries and etc. NOW YOU KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY!

They sucked monkey balls for decades until the 70's. Sucked again in the 80's. Then a decent turnaround in the 90's - off and on until Tomlin comes in. They did well. Especially when James Harrison and that defense was allowed to brutalize my Browns and give them concussions galore for years. But when Cleveland gets some talent this year; the League has evolves to play touch defense. It's hard to take the game seriously anymore. If Freddie gets fired after one season...I am done watching the NFL for good. Colin talks so much about optics gives a damn about that after Pittsburgh's bullshitting with Leveon Bell and dramaqueen extraordinaire Antonio Brown. Won't even bring up Ben Roethlisburger's shenanigans. Changing the culture isn't an easy task. I'd be a little more sympathetic after what Hue Jackson put that team through.

New England is the best in the league at adapting, they’ll adapt and learn how to scout and draft receivers well when it becomes dire. It’s becoming dire so if they sign ab he’ll bring them to win the Super Bowl then they’ll start drafting better at receivers because now Brady needs the help before the receivers needed Brady but now Brady needs the receivers because of his age. He isn’t declining, just he isn’t able to make anyone look like a super star anymore
