Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski, aka the reigning NFL Coach of the Year, has a message for Browns fans attending the Week 2 game against the Texans.
Every game is a big deal, but this one may be bigger because FirstEnergy Stadium will be packed to capacity.
Stefanski and the Browns had so much success in 2020 but largely in a vacuum without in person participation by fans at home.
That brings us back to Stefanski’s “orders” for the 67,000 or so fans coming to the stadium on Sunday to watch the Browns play for the first time in nearly 2 years.

Essentially, he wants fans to cut off their tailgating festivities early enough to get in the stadium for kickoff.
He then wants a lot of noise while the Browns are on defense and relative silence on offensive plays.
This man plans for everything, and we could not love it more.
His Fan Experience Is In A Dome
Stefanski, 39, came to Cleveland in 2020 after serving in many capacities with the Minnesota Vikings from 2006-2019.
The Vikings play in a dome so that is his only homefield advantage experience while working in the NFL.
We are sure that the Browns fans can make just as much noise, if not more, in the open FirstEnergy Stadium as those Vikings fans did in U.S. Bank Stadium.
Stefanski’s Directive To Coaching Staff
Think that Stefanski is only telling the fans what he expects?
#Browns Kevin Stefanski said a memo went out to the league reminding staff members of how to properly conduct themselves following the shoving incident with Ronnie Harrison and Chiefs RBs coach Greg Lewis.

He also issued a memo to the coaching staff to ensure they are disciplined and on best behavior.
Hopefully, the fans lucky enough to have tickets to Sunday’s game against the Texans listen to Stefanski.
Cheering on a Browns win is a top priority.
Tailgating before and after bookend the perfect day.
