WESTFIELD, Indiana -- Freddie Kitchens was pleased Thursday as he spoke with reporters because his message resonated.
Kitchens wasn't thrilled with how the Browns practiced Wednesday against the Colts. Cleveland didn't look like the lesser team by any means, but it went with the flow a little too much for Kitchens' liking. He wanted Thursday to be different, and boy was it ever.
"We just have a way that we are going to treat our practices. That is how we are going to practice. That doesn't ever change," Kitchens said. "It doesn't matter who we are going against. It doesn't matter if we are going against ourselves. I think we learned a lot about ourselves from the standpoint of that's how you have to approach it. You keep your tempo. Let everybody else adjust to yours, not the other way around.
"I think these guys are resilient from the standpoint of we can identify a problem and I think these guys work to fix it. We identified that problem last night, and they came out and fixed it."
The Browns left the field with smiles on their faces after a productive afternoon at the sprawling Grand Park Sports Campus. They hope to do the same Saturday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.
