Gregg Williams has instilled discipline in Cleveland Browns

The Browns have already made huge strides underneath Interim Head Coach Gregg Williams and new Offensive Coordinator Freddie Kitchens. The offense is no longer stagnant and aside from a few plays, Kitchens has called an offense that plays to the strengths of the roster. The defense, despite the injuries, has played well all year and that hasn’t changed with Williams at the head of the table. Although the Browns were toasted in the game against Kansas City, it was largely due to missing two starting linebackers and almost their entire starting secondary.

Despite all of the positives, the Browns’ biggest improvement has been in the discipline department. One of the things Williams did when he was appointed was shut off the music at practice. It was an immediate message that the culture is changing and it was finally time to get down to business. While there is nothing wrong with having music, the change was needed. Prior to Hue Jackson’s firing, the Browns were penalized 10 or more times in three separate games, including an abysmal 14 times against Tampa Bay. At the time of Jackson’s final game, the Browns were in the top 3 most-penalized teams in the league. These penalties killed drives and momentum the team had.
