There's a lot in here about Stefanski learning his keystone concepts. I really liked this part:
When asked why he thinks his system has endured after all these years, Kubiak focuses on a single word: deception. By seamlessly tying rushing concepts together with complementary play-action designs, Kubiak and his disciples can deploy a system that seems complicated, but is actually quite simple. “In a lot of ways, you’re not doing a ton of things, but you’re doing it a ton of ways,” Kubiak says. “You’re trying to mask certain things. They may look different on film, but they’re not. They’re simple for you, but they can get repetitive and hard for the defense because you’re doing it so many different ways.”
Here is another great Stefanski piece:
Stefanski has gone through a similar process during his first season in Cleveland, where he’s tried to take the foundation of Kubiak’s system and modify it for the specific talent on the Browns’ roster. Stefanski brought in coaches who specialize in several different systems. Offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt spent six years in Green Bay, including four as Aaron Rodgers’s quarterbacks coach, before serving as the Bengals’ QBs coach for the past two seasons. Browns passing game coordinator Chad O’Shea comes from the Patriots system, which has a reputation for consistently devising smart red zone packages. The goal is the same one that Kubiak and Shanahan had 25 years ago: By bringing together elements of different schemes, Stefanski is hoping the Browns offense presents a unique set of challenges for opposing defenses. “That’s the fun part of getting minds together in a room … ” Stefanski says. “The best idea wins. When you put it all on the table and you have the empirical evidence of tape to back it up, that’s the fun part of putting schemes together. We’re putting in the 2020 Browns’ system. I don’t care what you call it, really. And I know there’s gonna be time spent trying to figure out what we are. But we’re trying to spend time making sure that we’re hyperaware of what our players do well.”
Browns signed G Jovahn Fair.
Fair is the second guard signed by the Browns today after the team lost several offensive linemen during the league's opt-out window. Fair, a former undrafted free agent, previously played for Kansas City.
