Is it too early for Cleveland Browns fans to make out their holiday wish lists?
In this case, what is being discussed or “wished for” is a blast from the Browns’ past, and the topic is trending on social media.
YouTuber Michael Killi reached out to Gregg Williams on the Cameo app recently
This is how the “Bring Gregg Williams Back to Cleveland” idea picked up traction.
What Was Discussed
Killi asked Williams if he would be open to returning to the Browns as the DC.
Williams, who served as both DC and interim head coach in 2017-2018, did not say no.
He has family that lives in the Cleveland area.
Last week I reached out to Gregg Williams on Cameo to ask him if he would be open to returning to the #Browns.
See his response below!

Williams, the defensive coordinator and secondary coach of the XFL’s DC Defenders, wants to see the Browns succeed.
Here is the new D.C. XFL staff so far:
Head coach: Reggie Barlow
Defensive coordinator: Gregg Williams
Offensive coordinator/RBs coach: Fred Kaiss
Director of player personnel: Von Hutchins
Director of team operations: Stacie Johnsonhttps://t.co/Ma01Sp1vYP

“The city deserves a hard nosed winner they all can be proud of! I’m a phone call away & wish everyone the best! Go Browns!”
Williams signed the message GW/G-Dub.
The city and the fans remember Williams mostly from his appearance in the Hard Knocks series.
So many Gregg Williams Hard Knocks moments I want to use but most of them needs some censorship added to them.

Do The Browns Need A New DC?
Taking a trip down memory lane with Williams is partly due to the fact that many fans believe the Browns need a new defensive coordinator.
Among other things, Joe Woods can be blamed for wasting valuable years of Myles Garrett‘s career.
Some thought the Browns would replace Woods after several games this season.
The hashtag #FireJoeWoods has been prevalent on social media throughout the season.
Here’s my daily #FireJoeWoods tweet.

It appears Woods is staying put for now so hopefully, he can turn things around in the second half of the season, and this Greg Williams ground swelling of support can simmer down.
How quickly everyone forgets.
He insisted Garrett only use 2 moves.
He has always flopped as a head coach.
His defense while here was nothing to brag about, but he did brag.
Larry Avila says
Only two moves cuz Garrett accepted no responsibility for defending the run.
He was a winner in Cleveland he should have been
The Head Coach of the Browns and not Freddy.
There is probably a reason he’s not on an NFL staff now. His coaching style works in the short terms but it wears people out in the long term.
