Community Convo: Extension or still on the hot seat for Browns Kevin Stefanski?

Browns fans still seem split on the head coach

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Browns are 7-3 going into Week 12 of the 2023 NFL season. HC Kevin Stefanksi’s Browns have done so on the back of a great defense, solid special teams and just enough offensive production at times.


Update:

We asked this question going into Week 12’s game and are bringing it back going into Week 13’s game now that the Browns are 7-4 and could be starting their fourth quarterback.

The comment section could look quite different this week versus last but we have reopened the poll as well.


It makes sense that the offense has struggled since a vast majority of the major injuries in Cleveland have been on that side of the ball:

  • OL Jack Conklin
  • RB Nick Chubb
  • QB Deshaun Watson
  • OL Jedrick Wills (expected to return but out for a few more games)

The Browns also traded away Donovan Peoples-Jones and not gotten a ton of production from anyone besides Amari Cooper and David Njoku in the passing game.

Throughout the season, Cleveland fans have mostly focused on the negatives of Stefanski. Whether it was his use of end-arounds, 4th down aggressiveness, holding a large play sheet (“Denny’s Menu) or his run/pass decisions, the head coach has drawn the ire of many in the fanbase.

After two straight AFC North victories over the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, the momentum seemed to be shifting from the media perspective with fans still split. Then Stefanski’s team got mowed over by the Denver Broncos in Week 13 to turn the tide again.

So we bring this very simple question to you. If you had to decide between the two, would you give Stefanski an extension or do you think his job is still in jeopardy and he remains on the hot seat this year?
