CLEVELAND (AP) — One week into their expansive coaching search http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/germaine-pratt-jersey-cheap , the Browns are huddling.After conducting interviews with seven candidates in seven days, general manager John Dorsey and members of the team’s search committee, which includes owner Jimmy Haslam, were not expected to meet with anyone on Tuesday and could be evaluating their next move.It’s possible they’ve already found Cleveland’s ninth coach since 1999 or Dorsey and Co. could be waiting to speak with assistants on teams still in the playoffs.To this point, the Browns have met with interim coach Gregg Williams, offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens, former Indianapolis and Detroit coach Jim Caldwell, Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski, Saints tight ends coach Dan Campbell, Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores and Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus.Kitchens has emerged as a favorite along with Stefanski, who according to several reports is returning to the Browns’ facility in Berea, Ohio Ryan Finley Jersey , for a second interview.The Browns are not commenting on any interviews until they are completed.Dorsey had been expected to meet with former Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy, but nothing has been scheduled. Dorsey and McCarthy spent seven years together working with the Packers, and by all accounts, the two men have a solid relationship.McCarthy’s pedigree as a Super Bowl champion and his years working with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers make him appealing. But he’s also interviewed with the Jets and could land in New York.One coach no longer in the mix is New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who said Tuesday “the book is closed” on him interviewing for head coaching jobs.Dorsey has tightly guarded his plans during the search, much the way he did leading into the NFL draft when he stunned experts by selecting quarterback Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick.Obviously, that pick proved fruitful and Browns fans are trusting Dorsey to choose the right coach to pair with Mayfield.At this point, Kitchens, who revamped the team’s offense in the season’s second half, appears to be the front-runner.He’s the people’s choice and players love him.The 44-year-old Kitchens is the most recent candidate to meet with the Browns, formally interviewing with Dorsey and the committee members on Monday. He got a chance to present his long-term vision for what the Browns could become under his guidance. He’s already shown them what he can do in eight games.Once Kitchens took over Cleveland’s offense on Oct. 29, Mayfield took off. He threw 19 of his 27 touchdown passes — a league rookie record — in the final eight games and Mayfield completed 68 percent of his passes.Also http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/renell-wren-jersey-cheap , Kitchens designed play calls that played to Mayfield’s strengths, allowing the mobile QB to get out of the pocket to make plays and avoid pass rushers.Mayfield was sacked 20 times under coordinator Todd Haley, and just five with Kitchens in charge.Kitchens and Mayfield also formed a close bond, something none of the other candidates could claim when they sat in front of Dorsey and Haslam. That relationship could seal the deal for the Browns as they envision Mayfield being the franchise’s face behind the facemask for the next decade.If Kitchens is hired, it’s a stunning ascension for the former Alabama quarterback, who began the season as Cleveland’s running backs coach following 11 seasons with Arizona. Kitchens endeared himself to his players with a no-nonsense approach, easygoing style and willingness to include them in decisions. While building game plans, he empowered his players by asking them what plays they were most comfortable running.And Mayfield wasn’t the only player who developed under Kitchens as left tackle Greg Robinson and wide receiver Breshad Perriman, cast-offs at recent stops, made significant contributions.The Browns think so much of Kitchens that they blocked other teams from interviewing him.Kitchens began his coaching career in 1999 at tiny Glenville State in West Virginia and was on three other campuses before jumping to the NFL as Dallas’ tight ends coach in 2006.He’s never taken his climb for granted.“I didn’t have a dad as a coach. I didn’t have a starting point in this league,” he said earlier this season. “I grew up the son of a tiremaker at Goodyear Tire and Rubber plant in Gadsden, Alabama. Benjamin E. Mays said those who start behind in the game of life must run faster to catch up Michael Jordan Jersey , and I feel like I’ve been running fast my whole life.” The standings Monday offered small consolation for the first-place Miami Dolphins.They hardly felt or looked like the best team in the AFC East after a 38-7 loss at New England . The drubbing left the Dolphins with a deceptive 3-1 record, injuries issues and room for recrimination.“That’s why today is always the toughest,” said coach Adam Gase, who has dealt with the day-after blues before. “Everyone is brutally honest. You’re going to have conflict; you’re going to have some back and forth. Today is an emotional day.“It’s a bad feeling when you get drummed in a division rival’s stadium. It’s not something you like to experience, and you’re mad you can’t do anything about it now.”Instead, the Dolphins began looking ahead to another road game Sunday against Cincinnati (3-1) while wondering who will be available to play.More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins sign hometown WR Allen Hurns to 1-year contractNew Dolphins coach Brian Flores has his own daily workout at training campDolphins assistant coach Jim Caldwell takes leave of absence to address health issuesTwo-time Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones rejoins Dolphins after skipping voluntary practicesDolphins QBs Josh Rosen, Ryan Fitzpatrick embrace battle for No. 1 jobCenter Daniel Kilgore (torn left triceps) and cornerback Bobby McCain (knee) joined an already long injury list with serious ailments, and tackle Ja’Wuan James was also banged up.The rout will test the team’s culture, which Gase found wanting during a six-win season in 2017. There were signs of strife Sunday when defensive tackle Jordan Phillips had an angry outburst on the sideline after coming out of the game.Gase defended defensive line coach Kris Kocurek’s rotation pattern.“There’s a reason we’re subbing the way we’re subbing against that team,” Gase said. “It’s not a secret why we’re doing it. Whatever Kris wants the D-linemen to do, that’s what we’re doing.”The Dolphins have cause to be testy, with their fast start now looking like a mirage. They’ve been outscored this season 90-82 http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-hunter-renfrow-jersey , and outgained by 435 yards.The offense ranks third-worst in the NFL, and the secondary’s a mess, with even top cornerback Xavien Howard getting burned Sunday for two touchdowns.Gase struggled to explain how his team could play so badly after winning its first three games. He said the opponents were more physical, which hadn’t happened previously, and that wasn’t the lone issue. One familiar problem was penalties — 10 for 89 yards.“Nothing went right,” Gase said. “Nothing we did was good.”Receiver Albert Wilson offered an assessment that was candid but mystifying, given the high stakes against the division’s perennial powerhouse: “We didn’t have any energy going in.”Miami’s defensive front four looked especially listless, allowing Patriots rookie Sony Michel to run for 112 yards and his first career touchdown.“It was a lot of shooting yourself in the foot — misalignments, missed tackles, self-inflicted wounds,” defensive end Cameron Wake said. “And maybe some physicality as well.”Because the Patriots’ defensive line also dominated, the Dolphins couldn’t run the ball Zach Brown Jersey , and Ryan Tannehill had little time to throw. He was able to target Danny Amendola only three times and Jakeem Grant twice even though both “were open the whole game,” Gase said.Absent was the creative play-calling of earlier games that led to chunk yardage.“When you’re not getting first downs, you’re not moving the football, you’re not getting the defense on their heels a little bit, it’s tough to get those play calls in,” Tannehill said.This year’s offensive line was expected to be the best Tannehill has played behind, but three of the five starters are now hurt, with guard Josh Sitton earlier sidelined for the season.That leaves Tannehill in a precarious position, much like Miami’s lead in the AFC East.
