How Stats Could Help Browns Win

Andy Baskin – Baskin & Phelps – Middays 10am - 2pm on 92.3 The Fan

The Browns told us a few things at the FirstEnergy Stadium news conference.

No new helmets, no cheerleaders, new uniforms in 2014, plus three architect firms will look at revamping the stadium in the next thirty days.

Out in Berea, the Browns hired Ken Kovash, who will work with new team president Alec Shiner. He is a football analytics expert. While I’m not sure what he will do with the football side of the operation it’s clear from this story from sbnation his stats could impact the way coaches think. Like Shiner, he will head over from the Dallas Cowboys.

My NFL source is telling me that it’s not really a good idea to call Mel Tucker “a front runner” for the defensive coordinator’s position because the Browns want to go to a Hybrid 3-4, and Tucker is a 4-3 expert. We will see how this plays out.
