NFL Lockout's Impact On The Cleveland Browns

The Browns will be one of the hardest hit teams by a lockout. Cleveland has a new head coach in Pat Shurmur, Colt McCoy is their quarterback and new defensive coordinator Dick Jauron runs a 3-4 defense. With McCoy and Shurmur, they won't be able to get together and learn a new offense. McCoy showed promise last year, but is nowhere near a lock to be Cleveland's starter. He needs reps in Shurmur's new offense if he's going make progress. As for the defense, Cleveland is going from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 defense. That transition usually takes about two years because not every player on the current roster fits the 3-4 scheme. Cleveland needs running back Peyton Hillis to perform like he did last year, and that might only secure 2-3 wins for the Browns. They might be the front runner for worst NFL team in 2011.
