2024 Cleveland Browns Off-Season Thread

Do Not Sell My Personal Information
30% of players feel that HC Kevin Stefanski isn’t efficient with their time and is “somewhat willing to listen to the locker room”

This leads me to believe you really shouldn't strive for great scores on this section of the report card.

I don't necessarily trust the players' evaluation of "efficient use of their time" over the coaching staff. And I want a good balance between Kevin coaching versus just deferring to the locker room. "Somewhat willing" sounds healthy.

Like anything else, some data points are more valuable than others.

You mean the boss expected them to work and attend meetings??

Truly history's greatest monster
 
The grade itself is good. Really the only thing that matters. It's not surprising to me that the mass majority of players think highly of their coaches.

The Browns' overall grade would likely be vastly different if they renovated the indoor training facility and provided a few more accomodations for travel/treatment of family.

People get insecure over nothing. This is useful information to respective teams.
 
So I think it's pretty obvious that the FO/HC puts pressure on the players to play injured. The obvious ones were Baker and Watson, but I am sure there are others the fans aren't told about/as obvious. I could see that while KS gets results that he isn't well liked by the players.

Has anyone asked Gemini AI for a Stefanski vs. Hitler comparison yet? Jimmy vs. Pol Pot? DePodesta vs. Ion Antonescu?

Sounds like 30% of the roster needs to be trimmed.

On a similar point, I think the Chiefs have ranked second to last in overall score in back to back years and well…yeah, rings and parades

It’s crazy… Most of the fellas probably wanted to just chill all day in their slides with some socks on….

The vibes are not immaculate currently…
 
I'm not giving an opinion on this either way, I just want to know how is being ranked 28th out of 32 good for a B- grade? That's F+ territory at best. Who came up with this grading system??

Everyone who doesn't grade on a curve...
 
It's not apples to apples, and I promise to leave it alone after this, but the Port of Cleveland just announced airlines will pay the entire $175M of phase 1 (and a vast majority of the $3B total cost--with the Port and Cuyahoga County paying the rest) to renovate Hopkins. It's possible to get companies to pay for their own money-making places of business--even ones that can threaten to go elsewhere. Ironically, my mentor that designed Browns stadium also designed the Continental terminal.

Ticket prices will go up to pay for the increase in terminal lease rates, expiration of signatory landing fee credits will occur and flight service options will decrease. CLE has historically had higher costs per enplanement (CPE) over CAK, PIT, CMH, DTW and CVG.

CLE credited $14m in landing fees in '22 compared to receiving payments of $32m in '19, making it less expensive to operate at CLE. This was done to spur new routes/returning routes lost when United de-hubbed and aircraft operations still decreased 25% in '22 compared to '19. The airport still has $487m in debt.

The signatory landing fee credits was a difference in costs of $9.27/passenger. The three carriers with expansion in CLE over the past decade: JetBlue ($310m), Spirit ($447m) and Frontier ($37m) lost money in '23 and are in financial trouble and deferring new aircraft orders. Many of the low-cost routes to Florida and secondary southeast US airports won't survive without those credits. They especially won't with $2b+ in additional capital improvement fees over a decade. American, Delta, Southwest and United can spread those costs over a larger route network.

I don't think the airport ever recovered after Frank Jackson replaced John Mok with Ricky Smith as airport director.
