by emotions or public opinion during his little more than a year in charge of the Cleveland Browns.Dorsey clearly has a plan for how he wants to push the Browns to the next level. Sometimes he acts quickly — cutting wide receiver Kenny Britt shortly after taking over the general manager’s job http://www.brownsfanshop.com/Austin-Seibert-Jersey , for example. Other times he lets the situation play out — for example, giving owner Jimmy Haslam time to come to the realization that he was employing the worst head coach in NFL history. Knowing that, we were not expecting Dorsey to show up at his press conference on Monday wearing a bright orange Dawg Pound hoodie and singing the praises of offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens. But, even for someone who keeps his information on lockdown, Dorsey came off as pretty neutral about the work that Kitchens did over the second half of the season.While Dorsey said the Browns will give Kitchens an opportunity to interview for the vacant head coaching position, he also said it will happen “one day,” which could be interpreted as Dorsey believing he has more important items on his daily calendar.There is also one comment from Dorsey that really stood out when he was asked about Kitchens’ achievements this season, according to clevelandbrowns.com:Kitchens has “kind of moved the bar on the offensive side of the ball?” That is a bit of an understatement when you consider that:During the first half of the season, the offense struggled to get in gear as quarterback Baker Mayfield had eight touchdown passes, six interceptions, completed just 58.3 percent of his passes and posted a quarterback rating of 78.9. (Per cleveland.com)During the second half of the season, Mayfield had 19 touchdown passes, eight interceptions, completed 68.4 percent of his passes and posted a quarterback rating of 106.2. (Per cleveland.com)And Derrick Kindred Jersey , highlighting Dorsey’s comment about getting the ball out quicker, Mayfield was sacked just five times in the final eight games, compared to 20 in the first half of the season. (Per cleveland.com)Some of that can be attributed to Mayfield’s growth as a quarterback during his rookie season, but Kitchens certainly played a part in it as well. Even without the numbers to back it up, it was easy for Browns fans to see the difference in the offense once Kitchens took over.This could be all much ado about nothing since Dorsey and the Browns are still working through the evaluation process and setting up interviews. But it could also be Dorsey’s way of letting the fans know that they may not want to get to attached to everyone’s favorite offensive coordinator. Either way, we should all know for sure sometime in the next few weeks. Sam Darnold once thought he’d be wearing an orange helmet just a few shades brighter than his hair color.But the former USC star wasn’t precisely what the Browns were looking for in a franchise quarterback in the NFL draft. Darnold checked most of the boxes, but not all of them and Cleveland passed on him with the No. 1 overall pick, selecting Baker Mayfield instead.On Thursday night, Darnold can show the Browns they made a mistake.Another one.The youngest quarterback to start a season opener since 1970, Darnold will perform on a national TV stage for the second time already as a pro when he leads the New York Jets into FirstEnergy Stadium to face the Browns, who have played well enough to win their first two games but are still searching for their first victory since Dec. 24, 2016.Heading into April’s draft, Darnold was considered the top of the deep 2018 QB class and it appeared he would wind up in Cleveland, where quarterbacks have come and gone like restaurant busboys over the past two decades.“Yeah Myles Garrett Color Rush Jersey , I thought I could’ve ended up there or several other teams,” Darnold said this week. “I was excited to go anywhere. “Whoever wanted me, whoever wanted to pick me as a top pick, to me it was a dream come true right when it happened.”After the Browns nabbed Mayfield and the Giants grabbed running back Saquon Barkley, the Jets took Darnold and have been more than satisfied by his early development.He rebounded from throwing an interception that was returned for a TD on his first pass attempt in the opener and led the Jets to a 31-point win, and last week the 21-year-old became the youngest QB to pass for 300 yards.Darnold insists he’s not seeking any revenge or trying to prove anything to the Browns.“No,” he said. “I’m just going to go out there and play ball.”The Jets and Browns are on divergent paths with their rookie quarterbacks. New York has chosen to start Darnold, while Cleveland is holding Mayfield out to watch and learn behind Tyrod Taylor.It’s not a race and the Browns feel no need to rush their plan.“We feel very comfortable with the guy that we selected in Baker, and I’m sure they do with him,” coach Hue Jackson said. “He’s a fine prospect and is going to be a fine player. I think they got a good one, but we feel we have a really good one, too.”After facing Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees 鈥?two future Hall of Famers 鈥?in Weeks 1 and 2, the Browns aren’t looking at Darnold as any break.“I don’t think that any game in the NFL is a breather,” said linebacker Joe Schobert.“He’s got a big arm. He’s doing good things as their quarterback. The hardest thing to do is come into the NFL and play quarterback and be successful. And he’s so far shown himself to be pretty poised and good at it.”PRESSURE PACKEDThe Browns are down and desperate. They need a win https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Rashard-Higgins-Jersey , and after stubbing their toes twice already, need to beat the Jets. A 1-1-1 record seems light years from 0-2-1.“Our team is excited, hungry, disappointed, anxious 鈥?all of those words you want to use,” said Jackson, who is 1-32-1 in two seasons. “We just need to get it done.”BACK ‘HOME”The Dawg Pound will be a homecoming of sorts for several current Jets, who are former Browns.Running back Isaiah Crowell played the past four years in Cleveland. Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor spent two seasons with the Browns, including a breakout campaign in 2016 when the former quarterback had 1,007 yards. His QB for parts of those seasons was Josh McCown, now Darnold’s backup and mentor.Cornerback Buster Skrine played in Cleveland from 2011-14. Jets coach Todd Bowles, too, has Cleveland connections as an assistant under Butch Davis from 2001-04.ALIVE & KICKINGGreg Joseph was on the beach hanging out with friends last weekend, “you know Joe Thomas Jersey , just living the South Florida life.” Things changed quickly.The rookie is now in the spotlight 鈥?or crosshairs 鈥?as Cleveland’s new kicker. Joseph signed this week after the Browns cut Zane Gonzalez for missing two field goals and two extra points last week.Joseph, who spent the preseason with Miami, is excited about the opportunity.“My film’s out there. My stats are out there,” he said. “I learned a lot about me, the athlete I am and the competitor I am. I’m ready to bring it here.”Q IS THE ANSWERDarnold’s favorite target through two games has been wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, who has a team-leading 13 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown. Enunwa has been targeted 21 times, more than Pryor (11), Robby Anderson (six) and Jermaine Kearse (two) combined.SACK RACEThe Jets got their first four sacks of the season last Sunday against Miami, the most since getting to Taylor seven times when he played with Buffalo in Week 9 last season.“The whole unit, we definitely picked it up last week,” defensive end Leonard Williams said. “We didn’t have any sacks in the first week, even though they got the ball out pretty quickly. At the same time, I don’t want to make excuses. We definitely picked it up last week and I hope we continue to make strides on that.”___
