Browns vs. Ravens: Pat Shurmur, Brad Childress to work on playcalling communication

The Browns will streamline their offensive playcalling system during the bye week, after they struggled to get plays in fast enough against the Ravens.

After having issues getting offensive plays in quick enough against the Ravens, Cleveland head coach Pat Shurmur said the Browns will streamline their playcalling during the bye week.

Cleveland was forced to burn three timeouts in order to avoid delay-of-game penalties on Sunday, after they were unable to get the play in fast enough. Currently, Shurmur and offensive coordinator Brad Childress collaborate on the play before Shurmur relays the call to quarterback Brandon Weeden.

Weeden declined to comment on the issues, but Shurmur took full responsibility. He said the staff will work on the problem during the bye week to streamline the system. In addition to having issues getting the plays in quickly enough, Shurmur also said there were a few play calls against the Ravens he would do differently.

The Browns will be on their bye week this week before going on the road to face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.
