Browns head coach Pat Shurmur, from yesterday’s session with the media- I can’t tell you exactly. I know exactly why. There were a couple situations getting the right people in the game, getting the play to the quarterback in a timely fashion and then him calling it properly. That’s the string of events. There were a couple times yesterday that didn’t get done. I’m absolutely responsible for that. We’ll make changes here and we’ll streamline some of things. That’s what’s nice about the bye week. It’s about the Browns. It’s about whoever you’re team is you focus on, ‘What can we do better as we move forward?’ We just happen to have the latest bye of the season. For instance, we’ll look at third and ones, what we can do better, the people we use, the plays we run as we move forward to make that absolutely better. We’re going to do that. (On why the plays didn’t get in on time) – I mentioned about the communication. That’s something that we’re going to talk about. I’ll take full responsibility for all of it. I think we can streamline some things to help the players execute better. That’s about what I’ll say about that. (On the play calling process) – Brad (Childress) and I call the game. I send in the play to the quarterback, and then he calls the play in the huddle. That’s it. (It’s) very simple. (On the conversations between himself and Childress) – We talk about what the plays are going to be. We have them written down, we just don’t make them up as we go. Then there’s also getting different players in the game because we use multiple players. There’s a lot that goes on. That’s where we need to be better than we were the other night in all of that and make sure it happens. [Related: On squandered opportunities and disappearing good will]
