Freddie Kitchens: Sideline exchange with Jarvis Landry not a big deal

The Browns got blown out by the Cardinals on Sunday and the loss means that there’s no chance of finishing the year with a winning record.

That wasn’t the way anyone in the organization hoped things would play out this season and emotions boiled over in the fourth quarter. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry and head coach Freddie Kitchens were seen engaging in a spirited exchange on the sideline after a missed field goal.

After the game, Kitchens shrugged off the interplay as nothing of consequence.

“I love Jarvis Landry,” Kitchens said, via 92.3 The Fan. “Jarvis is my kind of player as fiery. Things happen. It’s no big deal. It’s an emotional game. I love Jarvis.”

The Browns will close out a disappointing year with games against the Ravens and Bengals. The way the team plays in those contests may help determine if Kitchens will continue coaching Landry in 2020 because a couple more ugly losses may prove to be too much for Kitchens to bear.

  1. Freddie Kitchens will probably be a good head coach someday. He’s learning on the job.

    But he isn’t a good head coach right now. I know hindsight is 20/20, but how could’ve it been more obvious that they should’ve kept Gregg Williams as the coach? The front office even had the benefit of hindsight! They watched Williams turn the team around last year!

    It’s okay to let a coach learn on the job if your building a team from scratch, but the Browns were already ready to take the next step. They were the most (over)hyped team coming into this season. In a position like that, you need a coach that’s already been a leader of an NFL team.

    I’m not a Browns fan, but I kind of follow them because they’ve been so bad for so long, and I feel for their fans. I hope they do the right thing this offseason and hire the right coach.

  2. Isn’t that the standard response when a player gets into it with a HC
    You would never see that stuff on the Patriots sideline or Cowher, Jimmy Johnson, And when it happened with Parcells we all know how that ended.
    Landry is a baller but needs to control his emotions.
    Kitchens is dead man walking and that team needs a HC that will come in and put a muzzle on Mayfield. He is the most overrated and overhyped QB in years.

  3. He’s in over his head…I would feel sorry for Browns fans if they hadn’t run their mouths so much…Reality Check…they are barely competitive!!!!!!

  4. If there was a re-draft Mayfield would be a 3rd round pick and I have never seen a HC who is so in over his head. (Terrible hire) SI had the Browns going to the SB and I think any 1/2 decent coach would have them in the playoffs in spite of Baker.

  5. Well let’s see what the Browns can do. Since they don’t mind training, Jason Garrett will be available soon, Pat Shurmer, and Matt Patricia you can call on. Ron Rivera will go to a good team, so you can also grab Jay Gruden, he rested up. Either muzzle or trade Mayfield or keep him on as janitor. The latter is what he is more qualified to handle.

  6. Oh, it’s a great big love-fest on the Browns’ sidelines!
    I wonder when the coming nuptials will be announced.

  7. Mayfield a 3rd round pick you say?? I would say late 5th or 6th if you had to do it over again.
    Alot of mouth and not alot of action on the field.
    Maybe less commercials and media time and more time working with your receivers and more time in the playbook.

  8. Don’t see how Kitchens stays around. If Dorsey keeps him and next year is more of the same then Dorsey is probably gone to.

    Best bet would be the ex Green Bay coach for Cleveland

  9. No comment on the “Mayfield isn’t a starting QB” comment. Last I checked his QBR puts him 3 spots ahead of Brady and we’re still blaming TBs receivers for an obvious, OBVIOUS decline in skills. It ain’t his receivers.

    Difference is Mayfield doesn’t have BB. He has Kitchens. And I would be less concerned about 1st year, 2nd year, learning on the job right wrong or what. I’d be more concerned that in his presser he said something to the effect of “I don’t care about my HC job in Cleveland.”

    As a Browns fan I hope to wake up to PFT telling me he was fired overnight.

    Once again, where was Browns defense?

    Ummm…missing 5 starters, and starting 5 players under the age of 22?

    The problem with this team is not talent, and it’s not Baker Mayfield. This is all on the coach. When you have 2 running backs as good as Chubb and Hunt and you dont run those 2 35+ times a game, you are not an NFL head coach. They both averaged over 5 yards a carry, yet were not used nearly enough. You’d be amazed how good the passing game would be if you used your running game like you should.

    Better get used to it if you stay with the Browns, they’ve always been a “high on hope, low on results” team!

    Being from less than 50mi from Cleveland I can’t count how many times in 50+yrs I’ve heard the Browns and their fans in the pre-season saying “we’re going to the playoffs this year” and then by week 8 its “just wait until next year”! LOL

  12. Get rid of the Coach, the QB, and the whiny Receiver. Reboot and win the 2020 off-season hype award again. The Browns may then climb into the #2 spot in the AFC North next year.
