The Browns were the clear-cut, no-questions-asked hype-bunny team heading into the 2019 season. uCFLive体育网

布朗夫妇是进入2019年赛季的一支明确的、不问问题的炒作兔子球队。uCFLive体育网

Sure, there were some detractors but don’t revise history here; the vast majority of NFL media was in a full-blown fever over the Browns prospects after they traded for Odell Beckham Jr. uCFLive体育网

当然,这里有一些批评者,但不要修改历史;绝大多数NFL媒体在交易小奥德尔·贝克汉姆后,对布朗的前景全面狂热。uCFLive体育网

One clown even went so far as to predict that Cleveland had good odds to be the No. 1 offense in the NFL last season. Of course, that dunce was me. uCFLive体育网

一位小丑甚至预测,克利夫兰骑士队上赛季很有可能成为NFL的头号进攻球员。当然,那个笨蛋就是我。uCFLive体育网

We all know what happened next. The passing game wildly underperformed. Baker Mayfield’s play cratered as he stacked mistakes upon bad habits brought on by a debilitating offensive line. Odell Beckham Jr. struggled with injuries and getting on the same page with his quarterback. Players like Jarvis Landry made no bones about their lack of faith in head coach Freddie Kitchens. The running game, led by Nick Chubb with a late-season sprinkling of Kareem Hunt, was the lone bright spot. It was not enough to keep this offense from being a true eyesore all year. uCFLive体育网

我们都知道接下来发生了什么。传球的比赛表现极差。贝克·梅菲尔德的比赛失败了,因为他在一条令人衰弱的进攻线带来的坏习惯上堆积了错误。小奥德尔·贝克汉姆(Odell Beckham Jr.)。与伤病作斗争,并与他的四分卫站在同一条战线上。像贾维斯·兰德里这样的球员直言不讳地表示他们对主教练弗雷迪·基钦斯缺乏信心。由尼克·丘布(Nick Chubb)领导的跑动比赛,在赛季末撒上了卡里姆·亨特(Kareem Hunt),是唯一的亮点。这还不足以阻止这种冒犯行为一年到头成为真正的眼中钉。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

The Browns cleaned house once again when the season ended. Freddie Kitchens had to go and the team elected to let the overly aggressive architect of a failed roster, John Dorsey, follow him out the door. Chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta, however, was retained as a key lieutenant for team owner Jimmy Haslem. uCFLive体育网

赛季结束后,布朗一家又一次打扫了房子。弗雷迪·基钦斯不得不离开,团队选择让这位过于咄咄逼人的失败花名册的设计师约翰·多尔西跟随他离开。然而,首席战略官保罗·德波德斯塔(Paul DePodesta)被保留为球队老板吉米·哈斯勒姆(Jimmy Haslem)的关键副手。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Haslem and DePodesta reaffirmed the organization’s commitment to an analytically sound approach and poached former Browns vp of player personnel Andrew Berry from the Eagles and tapped Kevin Stefanski to be the franchise’s next head coach. uCFLive体育网

哈斯勒姆和德波德斯塔重申了该组织对分析合理方法的承诺,并从老鹰队挖来了前布朗球员人事副总裁安德鲁·贝里(Andrew Berry),并任命凯文·斯蒂芬斯基(Kevin Stefanski)为球队的下一任主教练。uCFLive体育网

Cleveland has turned over a new leaf ... again. uCFLive体育网

克利夫兰已经翻开了新的一页。再来一次。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Cleveland Browns, meet Kevin Stefanski uCFLive体育网

克利夫兰·布朗,见见凯文·斯特凡斯基。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

It’s easy to dismiss all things Browns heading into this season. The team was an overwhelming letdown as a pure football operation and several of its big-name fantasy players, Beckham and Mayfield, were roster cloggers all year. No one can blame you if you’re sick of them, too. Drama followed their losing at every turn last year. A tedious club that can’t stop underperforming is quick to draw the ire of the football collective. uCFLive体育网

很容易就会忽视布朗本赛季即将到来的所有事情。作为一支纯粹的足球球队,这支球队令人压倒性地失望,它的几名大牌梦幻球员,贝克汉姆和梅菲尔德,全年都是花名册上的拦路虎。如果你也厌倦了他们,没有人会责怪你。去年,戏剧性的是伴随着他们的每一个转折点的失败。一家乏味乏味的俱乐部如果不能停止表现不佳,很快就会招致整个足球集体的愤怒。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

At the same time, they could be the ultimate buy-low outfit; a post-hype sleeper team now rid of its biggest hindrances and ready to fulfill the promise a talented roster carried into 2019. uCFLive体育网

与此同时,他们可能是终极低买入的装备;一个后炒作的卧铺团队现在消除了最大的障碍,准备兑现天才花名册带入2019年的承诺。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

The key really is head coach Kevin Stefanski, and his offensive vision. He can unlock this team. uCFLive体育网

关键是主教练凯文·斯蒂芬斯基和他的进攻眼光。他可以解锁这支队伍。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Freddie Kitchens came from the Bruce Arians’ coaching tree, famous for an aggressive dropback vertical passing game. That worked during Mayfield’s rookie season, as he finished with the sixth-most yards (1,008) on throws of 20-plus yards despite not playing a full season, per Pro Football Focus. It was clear from the jump it wasn’t a good plan in 2019. Mayfield still attempted those throws at around the same rate (14 percent) but was 10th in yards, produced a paltry 71.7 passer rating, and hurled seven picks, trailing only Philip Rivers. Yet, the Browns brass never truly adjusted for a woeful pass protection group. The entire passing game was bogged down as Kitchens refused to alter his approach, much less pass the play-calling sheet to offensive coordinator Todd Monken. Mayfield’s play eroded every step of the way. uCFLive体育网

弗雷迪·基钦斯来自布鲁斯·阿里安的教练树,以咄咄逼人的后退垂直传球而闻名。这在梅菲尔德的新秀赛季奏效了,因为他在20多码的投球中获得了第六多码(1008码),尽管他没有打完整个赛季,根据职业足球的焦点。从跳跃中可以清楚地看出,这在2019年不是一个好计划。梅菲尔德仍然尝试了大约相同的投篮速度(14%),但在码数上排名第10,传球得分微不足道,只有71.7分,投出了7次选秀权,仅次于菲利普·里弗斯(Philip Rivers)。然而,布朗队从未真正调整过,以适应糟糕的传球保护组。由于基恩斯拒绝改变他的方法,整个传球比赛陷入了泥潭,更不用说把传球名单传给进攻协调员托德·蒙肯(Todd Monken)了。梅菲尔德的表演侵蚀了前进的每一步。uCFLive体育网

Making life more difficult for your young quarterback is the unforgivable sin in the NFL. The Browns committed it wire to wire during the 2019 regular season. uCFLive体育网

让你年轻的四分卫生活更加艰难是NFL不可饶恕的罪过。布朗夫妇在2019年常规赛期间将其投入使用。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Stefanski’s offense could be exactly what Mayfield needs to rehabilitate after a lost sophomore season. For starters, going by what Stefanski did in Minnesota last year, we can expect far more layup throws for Mayfield. uCFLive体育网

斯蒂芬斯基的进攻可能正是梅菲尔德在输掉大二赛季后需要恢复的。首先,按照斯蒂芬斯基去年在明尼苏达所做的事情,我们可以预期梅菲尔德会有更多的上篮命中率。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

It will start by de-emphasizing the vertical passing game. Mayfield averaged 8.5 intended air yards per pass attempt, ranking 13th among relevant quarterbacks. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins ranked 25th. uCFLive体育网

它将从不强调垂直传球开始。梅菲尔德平均每次传球8.5码,在相关四分卫中排名第13。维京队四分卫柯克·库辛斯排名第25位。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

We can also expect to see more play action. According to Pro Football Focus, Cousins was top-six in the play-action rate at 31.9 percent of his pass attempts. He tied with Lamar Jackson for the league-lead with 14 play-action touchdowns. Mayfield was in the top-12 of the league with 28.7 percent of his passes coming on play fakes. Considering how effective he was on those plays, you could argue the 2019 Browns still should have used it more. Mayfield’s completion rate was 10.1 percent higher on play-action throws vs. those without last year. Only one other quarterback (Gardner Minshew) saw a more dramatic jump among players to start five-plus games. His yards per attempt also jumped 2.6 on play-action throws, eighth-most in 2019. uCFLive体育网

我们还可以期待看到更多的游戏动作。根据Pro Football Focus的数据,库辛斯的传球命中率为31.9%,位居前六。他以14次触地得分与拉马尔·杰克逊并列联盟第一。梅菲尔德是联盟前12名,他28.7%的传球都是假的。考虑到他在这些比赛中的效率,你可以争辩说,2019年的布朗仍然应该更多地使用它。梅菲尔德去年投球的完成率比没有投球的人高出10.1%。只有一名另外的四分卫(Gardner Minshew)在球员中看到了更戏剧性的跃升,开始了五场以上的比赛。他的每次尝试码数也在战术投掷中跃升了2.6码,在2019年位居第八。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Saying “Use more play action” is easy. And while it is the correct answer, the reality is, not all play action is created equal. The type of fakes Stefanski will bring to Cleveland should be even more beneficial to Mayfield. uCFLive体育网

说“使用更多的游戏动作”很容易。虽然这是正确的答案,但现实是,并不是所有的游戏行为都是平等的。斯蒂芬斯基将给克利夫兰带来的假货类型应该对梅菲尔德更有利。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

It was ultra-clear to anyone watching the Browns last year that dropping Mayfield back in the pocket left him far too vulnerable to instant pressure, exacerbating his bad habits. Well, apparent to everyone but the coaches, apparently. The Browns rarely designed plays for Mayfield that got him on the move. He threw just 19 boot or rollout passes last year, ranking an absurd 29th among all passers. Conversely, Kirk Cousins threw 66, trailing only Jared Goff, and posted a 136.7 passer rating and a league-high seven touchdowns. uCFLive体育网

任何看过布朗夫妇去年比赛的人都非常清楚,把梅菲尔德放回口袋里让他太容易受到即时压力的影响,加剧了他的坏习惯。显然,对每个人来说都很明显,除了教练。布朗夫妇很少为梅菲尔德设计让他转会的比赛。去年他只投了19次靴子或出场传球,在所有传球者中排名荒谬的第29位。相反,柯克·库辛斯投了66球,仅次于贾里德·戈夫,传球率为136.7,触地得分为联盟最高的7次。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

If you liked Mayfield as a college prospect or were enthralled with his strong play during a record-breaking rookie season, the adjustments Stefanski will make are just a coach playing things smart. If you didn’t like Mayfield much coming into the NFL, this is all just window dressing in the hopes of hiding a player’s problematic flaws. It doesn’t really matter. Taking these steps will take Mayfield from being one of the absolute worst starting quarterbacks in the NFL last year to making him a quality point guard for an efficient offense. uCFLive体育网

如果你喜欢梅菲尔德作为一个大学的前景,或者被他在一个破纪录的新秀赛季中的强劲表现迷住了,斯蒂芬斯基将做出的调整只是一个聪明的教练。如果你不太喜欢梅菲尔德进入NFL,这一切都只是为了掩盖球员的问题缺陷而装点门面。这真的无关紧要。采取这些措施将使梅菲尔德从去年NFL绝对最差的首发四分卫之一,转变为一名高效进攻的优质控球后卫。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

The Stefanski effect isn’t just for Mayfield uCFLive体育网

斯蒂芬斯基效应不仅仅是梅菲尔德的。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Stefanski fixing Mayfield in this fashion will have a tremendous trickle-down effect on the rest of the offense. uCFLive体育网

斯蒂芬斯基以这种方式固定梅菲尔德,将对其余的进攻产生巨大的涓滴效应。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Jarvis Landry, already an excellent zone-beater who thrives on interior routes, would pile up catches over the middle on boot throws. He’s an ideal fit to slide into the flanker/slot role Adam Thielen held in this offense, which includes more deep routes than Landry usually sees. Despite coming off his best season as a pro, Landry hovers around WR30 in early fantasy ADP. uCFLive体育网

贾维斯·兰德里(Jarvis Landry)已经是一名优秀的区域击球手,他在内线上茁壮成长,在投靴时会在中间堆积接球。他非常适合在这次进攻中扮演亚当·蒂伦(Adam Thielen)所扮演的边路/位置角色,这包括比兰德里通常看到的更深的路线。尽管结束了他作为职业球员的最好的赛季,兰德里在早期幻想的ADP中徘徊在WR30左右。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Stefanski will also certainly install a pristine rushing game. That’s a massive boom for the Browns’ already studly backfield of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. uCFLive体育网

Stefanski肯定还会安装一个原始的冲刺游戏。对于布朗夫妇已经在学习的后场尼克·丘布和卡里姆·亨特来说,这是一个巨大的繁荣。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Odell Beckham Jr. is the big-ticket item. A wildly disappointing Browns debut still stings. However, it’s impossible to watch Beckham last year and come to any other conclusion that he was not right physically. The results from my Reception Perception tracking would also back up that sentiment: uCFLive体育网

小奥德尔·贝克汉姆(Odell Beckham Jr.)。是一件高价商品。极其令人失望的布朗队首秀仍然令人心痛。然而,看了去年的贝克汉姆之后,不可能得出任何其他结论,说他的身体不对劲。我接受感知跟踪的结果也会支持这一观点:uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

From 2014 to 2018, Beckham looked like a legendary talent whenever he was on the field, one who wouldn’t just rule the roost of the position during his playing days, but possibly go down as one of the most storied to ever play wide receiver. That came to crashing halt last year. Such a precipitous drop in Reception Perception is nearly unheard of. It’s easy to say he will get right back to his usual form in 2020 but it may not be that simple. We have to ask ourselves whether he’s lost a step forever and may never return to the player we knew. Given that the injuries are mounting at this stage of his career, that could be possible. uCFLive体育网

从2014年到2018年,贝克汉姆在球场上看起来就像一个传奇天才,他不仅会在踢球的日子里统治这个位置,而且可能会成为有史以来最具传奇色彩的边路接球手之一。去年,这一趋势戛然而止。接受度如此急剧的下降几乎是闻所未闻的。说他会在2020年恢复到他通常的状态很容易,但事情可能没有那么简单。我们必须问问自己,他是不是永远失去了一步,可能再也不会回到我们认识的那个球员了。考虑到在他职业生涯的这个阶段伤病越来越多,这是可能的。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Personally, I’ll keep the candle lit for a rebound from one of the most explosive athletes and refined technicians at the receiver position. But I could easily be wrong to do so. Knowing the right answer here is impossible. uCFLive体育网

就我个人而言,我会一直点亮蜡烛,以便从接收器位置上最具爆发力的运动员和精湛的技术人员之一手中抢到篮板。但我这么做很容易就是错的。要知道这里的正确答案是不可能的。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Even if I’m wrong, Stefanski can still make his life easier, too. Along with health and overall fit with the team, a problematic route assignment was another huge hindrance to Beckham’s production. As you can see from the chart above, Beckham was still strong on the slant route and we’ve all see his Giants’ highlights where he puts on those long YAC plays following a quick slant. Yet, for some reason, the Browns cut his slant routes back a noticeable degree last year, opting to over-emphasize low-percentage, downfield targets. uCFLive体育网

即使我错了,斯蒂芬斯基也能让他的生活更轻松。除了健康和与球队的整体适应之外,有问题的路线分配也是贝克汉姆生产的另一个巨大障碍。正如你从上面的图表中看到的,贝克汉姆在倾斜的路线上仍然很强壮,我们都看到了他的巨人队的亮点,他在快速倾斜之后上演了YAC的长距离比赛。然而,由于某种原因,布朗夫妇去年将他的倾斜路线削减了明显的程度,选择了过度强调低百分比的下场目标。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

A compromised form of Beckham could still be a productive player for the Browns on the layup quick throws that will be a part of Stefanski’s offense. Even if he isn’t in his prime alpha form, Beckham can help this team. Nevertheless, at an ADP of WR14, it’s well worth taking the plunge in fake football. You’re risking little that Beckham reverses course after an outlier year and gets back to his transformative play. And if he doesn’t, this new offense is still designed to help him be more efficient than he was last year. uCFLive体育网

一个折衷的贝克汉姆仍然可以在布朗的上篮快速投篮上成为一名富有成效的球员,这将是斯蒂芬斯基进攻的一部分。即使他不在最佳状态,贝克汉姆也可以帮助这支球队。尽管如此,在WR14的ADP上,冒着假足球的风险是非常值得的。你不会冒险让贝克汉姆在经历了离经叛道的一年后改弦易辙,回到他的变革性比赛中来。如果他不这样做,这一新的进攻仍然是为了帮助他比去年更有效率。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

Kevin Stefanski and the successful installation of his offense won’t fix all of the Browns' problems. There is still plenty to be done in terms of organizational function and tweaking other problematic areas on the roster. uCFLive体育网

凯文·斯蒂芬斯基和他的进攻的成功安装不会解决布朗的所有问题。在组织职能和调整花名册上其他有问题的领域方面,仍有很多工作要做。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

However, based on what we know about Stefanski’s approach to offense, his system will go a long way to altering the course of two of the Browns’ most important players. The main reason for the Browns hype of last year was the positive vibes around Baker Mayfield and the effect adding an elite talent like Odell Beckham Jr. would have on the passing game. uCFLive体育网

然而,根据我们对斯蒂芬斯基进攻方式的了解,他的体系将在很大程度上改变布朗最重要的两名球员的路线。布朗去年炒作的主要原因是围绕贝克梅菲尔德的积极氛围,以及增加小奥德尔·贝克汉姆这样的精英人才的效果。会在传球比赛中发挥作用。uCFLive体育网

uCFLive体育网

All of that went astray in 2019. Stefanski’s offense can set it right. uCFLive体育网

所有这一切在2019年都走入了歧途。斯蒂芬斯基的进攻可以纠正它。uCFLive体育网
