    Kitchen's Laying Down the Law in C-Land

    Steelers reputation still on the mend:

    ............It's also clear that Kitchens is tired of leaks and unnamed sources that are coming from within Browns headquarters. Kitchens vowed to put a swift end to anyone he sees doing anything of the sort moving forward.


    "The days of inside information and the days of unnamed sources and stuff like that have ended," he said. "So you're not going to get any information like that, ever. Anybody. And I ever see it, they're fired, immediately. And that's how we're running this organization. I can take it. [Cleveland GM] John Dorsey can take it. We won't crack, I promise you."

    Kitchens is in uncharted waters. Not only is he a first-time head coach (at any level), Kitchens is presiding over a team that has extremely high expectations entering the 2019 season. Kitchens' roster is one that includes several high profile NFL stars, including quarterback Baker Mayfield, receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and running back Kareem Hunt. Not only does Kitchens have to try to put together a championship-caliber product this season, he has to do so while also managing the many personalities on his team while also dealing with remaining in the national media circuit on a weekly basis.

    Dealing with heightened media distractions is one of the challenges of coaching a team with championship expectations. The Patriots have become the standard when it comes to blocking out the outside noise while not losing sight of the goal: a Super Bowl title.
    The Steelers, a perennial AFC North favorite and Cleveland's historical rival, has struggled in recent years with regard to blocking the outside noise while remaining focused on the ultimate goal. In a twist of irony, Pittsburgh is now the team that is flying under the radar of national scrutiny, while the Browns are now learning how to deal with being under the microscope.

    Despite the new challenges that continue to surround his team, Kitchens made it clear on Monday that he believes that he is strong enough to withstand any storm that comes at him and his team. Whether or not his team is also up to the task is what will ultimately determine the fate of the 2019 Browns.

    Between the coach being a rookie and the QB being a hothead the Browns season could spiral quickly out of control.

    This dude has no idea how the media works their sources.

    As soon as it gets rocky guys are going to start talking...

    especially if they feel like their job is on the line.

    Yep..it's coming apart already. hahahahaahhahaha
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    Anyone who was dumb enough to think that Mayfield and OBJ would ever work deserves what they get.

    The leak that got kitchen's ire was concerning coach Wylie last season. Wylie was credited by some with Browns turn-around. But he was ultimately not retained by Kitchens. Apparently someone knew this in advance of Wylie being told and leaked to the press.
    Pretty mundane stuff... waiting for the more juicy tidbits when the season starts.
    Also wondering who gave the HC firing authority in the front office staff??

    I tend to think that "unnamed sources" just means that they made something up or heard it 4th hand or something.

    I think they should do it today just to troll him. Or if the Browns do get up on the Steelers, we should petition some homer media guy to do it just to sow seeds of discontent over there.
