Here’s a fun bit of trivia for you: which of the following has happened more often in the last decade? A) a polar vortex has wreaked havoc on U.S. weather, or B) the Cleveland Browns have won seven games in a single NFL season?
If you bet on the dangerously impactful weather event, you’d be right!
Despite this being the case, however, there is an argument to be made for the Browns’ perpetual struggles causing more pain than -60˚F wind chills. And yet, the 2018 season brought more than just unbearably cold storms; it brought hope and momentum to a long-beleaguered franchise and city, largely guided by an aggressive and opportunistic Cleveland defensive unit.
Now, as we enter 2019 and the Dawg Pound looks to build upon its success, new defensive coordinator Steve Wilks takes the reins.
Can Wilks keep this defense hot and ready, or will the Browns’ emergent Individual Defensive Players (IDPs) freeze up with a new DC at the helm?
He also likes coffee. You can talk to him about IDP, other dynasty things, and various caffeinated beverages on Twitter at @JayArrNFL.
