NFL 2016 Latest News & Update: Hue Jackson Promises Reinvented Cleveland Browns In 2017
Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson is aware of his predicament and made it clear that he is unfazed of his future at the helm. The Browns have four games left and the goal right now is to avoid ending the current NFL season winless.
Only one other team has gone 0-16 and this was the Detroit Lions back in 2008. The Browns are on the brink of joining that circle of shame though a single win can save them the disgrace. Cleveland takes a bye this weekend, allowing Jackson and the Browns to regroup for their remaining games. But will this be enough?
The Browns dropped another game recently against the New York Giants, 27-13, something that saw them go 0-12 for the season. Brown admits that he hates losing but take full responsibility for where the team is at right now.
It will be something he will carry moving forward and the best thing to do now is plan ahead. But will he keep his position? Hue Jackson thinks so.
Based on his interview, Jackson is confident that he has the backing of the team owners (Jimmy and Dee Haslam) as well as vice president Sashi Brown, Pro Football Talk reported. Being in his first year with the Browns, his confidence level is understandable. Next year may, however, be different.
One season does not define Hue Jackson but he needs to prove that he is the answer to the Browns troubles. The last time that Cleveland made the playoffs was in 2002 and everything has been disappointing since.
Manpower changes may be forthcoming as the team hopes to plug holes in their roster. The quarterback position is seen as one though there are plenty more like the running back. Isaiah Crowell may be a casualty, seeing that he wasn’t made to be a starting running back, Dawg Pound Daily reported.
Whatever happens, Jackson and the Browns have to make key changes in the offseason. For now, it is about winning at least one game to avoid further embarrassment.
