Isaiah Crowell entered the press room

1 post in this topic

at the New York Jets' facility and promptly excused himself to use the bathroom.No Youth Jabrill Peppers Jersey , you can't make this stuff up.The running back, of course, has been in the headlines lately for his butt-wiping touchdown celebration at Cleveland on Sept. 20. It drew a penalty — as well as the ire of coach Todd Bowles — and resulted in a fine of $13,369 by the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct ."I talked to Todd about what happened on the field and I told him it wouldn't happen again," Crowell said Wednesday.But Crowell also received an endorsement deal out of the whole mess, with pictures of him holding boxes of a toilet paper alternative for men splattered all over social media by the running back and the company Dude Wipes. It provided a bit of a questionable look — especially since Bowles had been so angered by the crude celebration."As far as the endorsement deal, I don't want to get too much into that," Crowell said. "I didn't mean any disrespect to anybody. I've got a lot of respect for everybody that's in the building and, I mean, that's really how I feel."He repeated those sentiments when asked if he thought he was making light of the situation by accepting an endorsement deal as a result."It won't happen again," Crowell said. "We talked about the on-field stuff and it won't happen again. We're moving forward after that."It all started when Crowell scored against the Browns, for whom he spent his first four NFL seasons before signing with the Jets in the offseason. After reaching the end zone, Crowell took the football, wiped it against his rear end and then fired it into the stands.Bowles spoke to Crowell to make it clear that he didn't approve of his player's actions. Crowell insisted after the game that he wasn't trying to send a message to the Browns. He was only having fun, he said, but felt bad about the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty his celebration drew."The play itself won't happen again on our field," Bowles said. "I can't do anything about anybody's endorsement deals off the field White Terrance Mitchell Jersey , but on this team it won't happen."Bowles said he didn't consider benching Crowell at the time because he didn't see the celebration until watching the game film. When asked if he was disciplined by the team, Crowell said he was punished by the NFL with the fine — but wouldn't say whether he would appeal."I mean, that's my business, right?" he said.Crowell, who leads the Jets with 171 yards rushing and four touchdowns, just wanted to flush away the chatter about his TD wipe."I really don't want to keep talking about the endorsement deals," he said. "I want to keep my focus on the upcoming games, if I can." Cycling through head coaches is far from ideal, but change was so badly needed in Cleveland that the charade had to finally be put to sleep. Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam had afforded Hue Jackson a benefit of the doubt rope longer than anyone has ever had. They made sure they did things that way so they’d avoid more backlash for yet another organizational upheaval.That benefit expired after a 25th-consecutive road loss, a loss in which Jackson and new, now former offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s offense again failed to achieve any kind of competency.There’s something really disheartening to be said for the level of inept football we were still witnessing three years into Jackson’s Browns era. The entirety of NFL history had never seen a coach yield such poor results as Jackson’s 3-36-1 record, including 3-13-1 in games decided by one score or less. Other coaches have had bad rosters. They have had rookie quarterbacks. They have had tear-down and burnt-to-ashes rosters that weren’t expected or intended to contend. Those teams still won games. They had an effective plan. They got better. Some still fired the coaches despite those improvements. But the Haslams didn’t want to do that. They wanted to leave no doubt.There was coaching happening in those situations that inspired confidence that those coaches had the personal and football acumens to lead a group of men into a collective and successful enterprise. If they didn’t, they were gone.But not in Cleveland. The Browns ownership shied away from making any impulse reactions to any isolated problems they saw from their head coach over a short timeframe. They wanted to see Jackson’s plan come to life, but it unfortunately never did. The same problems persisted, and the miserable results on Sundays became unjustifiable.There’s a common misconception—supported by the Haslams’ inaction for so long after taking swift corrective actions in the past—that organizational continuity is necessary to win in the NFL.If only teams would just stick with one guy long enough to see whether he has what it takes, then they can truly see what they need to from a coach.But, friends http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-jamie-collins-jersey , that time had already passed. That’s the ship that sailed weeks ago, had been taking torpedoes to the hull every week, and finally sank to the bottom of Lake Erie in Week 8.Continuity for continuity’s sake, that’s where we were at.Despite the realities, we’re drawn to resist change. Many believe that anything is better than changing head coaches every season, which perpetuates the unknown feelings brought on by that change. Loyalty, passion, and stability are nothing to turn your nose up at, after all. There’s nothing wrong with believing those are true and worthwhile values.Consistency is a good thing, it really is.But what feels appropriate and might be valid isn’t always correct in every circumstance. This NFL coaching task isn’t an easy endeavor. That’s why so many fail, then are re-cycled and given new settings only to fail again, much like quarterbacks. A head coach receives the highest scrutiny, as they should. The Los Angeles Rams defied this conservative and conventional wisdom. They moved and hired an unknown but young and promising head coach, and in two seasons he transformed them from talented middler into a Super Bowl contender. Everything Sean McVay does is as non-conventional as the decision was to hire him to replace veteran Jeff Fisher.McVay’s best quality? He’s not afraid to take chances. But more importantly, he knows when to make those calculated risks that stray from the norm. He knows how to relate to his players but also hold them accountable to his standards. He makes winning fun, not the daily grind to get there. How are NFL teams going to continue the same patterns and expect to have any kind of competitive edge? They don’t. There needs to be innovation. There needs to be discipline. There needs to be a belief in the plan, and buy-in from all the players. Liking a guy isn’t enough.It’s refreshing that this organization has finally woken up to this reality and decided to shed these archaic dinosaurs to move on to this new age. But in reality Youth Nick Chubb Jersey , it isn’t a new age at all. It’s what has always been done by winning football teams. Players don’t overtly love Bill Belichick for his personality, they love him because he excels at his job.He wins. He helps them win. And they love him for that above all else.Arguing about whose at fault for the Browns not measuring up to their demonstrated caliber while blaming everyone but the coaching staff eventually became an untenable position. Plainly, it got old. This change had to be now. After falling to 2-6-1 with a tough remaining schedule, the future takes precedence, and that future looks brighter now than it did 24 hours ago.Jackson seems like a great guy, and he was a successful coordinator for a period, but head football coaches in the NFL have to be more. They can’t just be like-able guys who make people feel good to be around them.In 2018, Jackson inherited a much better NFL roster with viable and competitive players and experienced coordinators, yet the results were nearly the same. It wasn’t going to get better with time, it’d have continued much the same or gotten worse. Keeping the status quo wouldn’t have fixed the problems we saw every week. The penalties and lapses weren’t going to stop. The game plan wasn’t going to evolve.The innovation that’s needed wasn’t going to suddenly emerge three years into this thing.The time lost with Jackson is a sunk cost at this point, and it unquestionably became time to make the appropriate fixes sooner than later to get the Browns headed on an upward trajectory. By making this decision now, the organization can get a head start on finding individuals they believe fit the mold of this new age NFL. They will look for coaches who can inspire confidence through innovation.Dorsey needs to seek out these coaches who can better identify weaknesses and plan around them. But most importantly, he needs to find people who will hold themselves and their players accountable.It’s not an easy task, but the search begins now, and Gregg Williams has the job of keeping the ship afloat until they find the right guys to do it.Things might get ugly, but at least it’ll be a fun ride.
