And now we know. Time actually went out for Hue Jackson. Browns shot him on Monday morning after a loss for Steelers. He brought this. The drama last week with him threatened to get involved in the interview and then move the debt because it ended. What is Hue Jackson good at? If you ask Brown's head coach himself, he would say that crime is his specialty. "That's what I know," he claimed last week after an overtime loss for Buccaneers. His statement came with a promise to jump in and help embattled offensive coordinator Todd Haley "figure out" why Browns could not make enough points to win games. They scored 1 8 points in a loss for Steelers. Six of these points came with just 13 seconds left in the match and Pittsburgh's speed control defensive with a 33-12 lead. So what did Jackson do to help the offensive this week? Nobody knows. Not even Hue Jackson! When asked about these comments after this week's loss, Jackson pointed it out. "I do not want to talk about or give [credence] something about last week," said Jackson after Sunday's game. "I said what I was saying by frustration. It's over." There he was clearly annoyed because the reporters were worried to get the declaration he made waaaaaay earlier, a whole dang week ago. So how was this one thing in the first place? Let's turn back the clock to last week, another forgettable Browns game. They lost 26-23 in overtime…

What is Hue Jackson good at? If you ask Brown’s head coach himself, he would say that crime is his specialty. “That’s what I know,” he claimed last week after an overtime loss for Buccaneers. His statement came with a promise to jump in and help embattled offensive coordinator Todd Haley “figure out” why Browns could not make enough points to win games.
They scored 1
8 points in a loss for Steelers. Six of these points came with just 13 seconds left in the match and Pittsburgh’s speed control defensive with a 33-12 lead.
So what did Jackson do to help the offensive this week? Nobody knows. Not even Hue Jackson!
When asked about these comments after this week’s loss, Jackson pointed it out.
“I do not want to talk about or give [credence] something about last week,” said Jackson after Sunday’s game. “I said what I was saying by frustration. It’s over.”
There he was clearly annoyed because the reporters were worried to get the declaration he made waaaaaay earlier, a whole dang week ago.
Let’s turn back the clock to last week, another forgettable Browns game.
They lost 26-23 in overtime to Bucs. After that game, when Jackson promised to embark on Brown’s offensive decision making.
“I have to jump in my head, all hands, feet, everything and go on it. It’s just so simple. I think I have to. And I want. That’s what I know. So I will not keep watching on something I know how to keep that way. It’s just the truth.
“There’s nothing against anyone in our building. I just think that’s what I do. And I think I need to be a bit more involved. “
Nobody will look at the box’s points and think that the crime was great in the loss of Bucs but a still diet to feed Nick Chubb the ball and Baker Mayfield leaned on Jarvis Landry and narrow end David Njoku got them out of a 16 -2-deficit in the first half to force overtime.
It’s not rocket science.
This was the best, most unpleasant part of his statement last week, though:
“I’m the football team’s main coach. I’ll do what I think I need to do to get this team where it has to be.
Was Jackson taking responsibility?
LOL, You Should Know Better Than.
A familiar thing happened Sunday morning, before Brown’s inevitable loss of Steelers rumors about a Burning came forth. This time it was Haley whose head was on the block. According to Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network, Browns can fire Haley if the game continued. That was at least one potential solution.
But you really do not have to look at all Browns soccer game (God, why would you?) Knowing that the problems are going well beyond the offensive leak rate. Everybody in the building is suffering from football anemia. It is endemic.
Jackson and Haley, surprisingly, no one familiar with any of them , do not agree. You saw some of these tensions on Hard Knocks this summer. They received an argument about dormant players. The thrill of how Jackson treats players, that is, with lack on discipline, is still a cause of concern.
Last week’s comments did not make a good surprise – with the rest of the team. A head coach who officially throws his veteran offensive coordinator will not be well received. Their infighting also made it more difficult in the locker room.
Hue Jackson always finds a syndabock. Last season it was Sashi Brown, a front office guy who takes the fall for Jackson’s 0-16 season. This time it is Haley that can be served.
To hear Jackson tell it after the match of the week, his involvement in the crime was no more than usual. It’s a very comfortable thing to say after being bothered by Steelers, who themselves had a pretty embarrassing moment at the free kick that they did not know was a free kick.
The difference is that Steelers bounced back from their forks. For Hue Jackson’s Browns, now 3-36-1 since he was hired, it’s a way of living.
It’s the usual list of conservative lesson talks, horrible clock management and untiplined games that have always developed Browns under Jackson, no matter what unfortunate schmuck coordinator who was unlucky to work for him.
On the first game in the game, Browns did a great job moving the ball. They moved 69 very nice yards to Steelers 13, where they had a third and 3. Pittsburgh knew what came, Duke Johnson right up in the middle. They filled him for a three-year loss, and Browns settled for a field goal.
My personal favorite line came at the end of the first half. The Steelers, who led 7-6, got the ball on his own 13 at 7:20 left after Baker Mayfield beat a whistle. They used all but eight seconds of remaining clock time on a touchdown device that made it 14-6. Hue Jackson had all three timeouts to burn when the device started, and he had all three timeouts left when the half ended.
Having a short memory is important to being a Browns fan. It’s a less appealing quality for the head coach.
When Steelers got a generous place on the same run, Jackson could not challenge, but he could have called a timeout hoping to get the punishment to take another look. Or if nothing else, a timeout just to give its defense a chance to gather before Steelers converted fourth and short on the next game.
Jackson’s brief memory was useful when asked about the drama last week.
“Guys, I said what I said last week, and of course it was bones, but I never said I wanted to take out lexicon. I said I wanted to help. That’s all. So today it’s suddenly this one big oil, to make sure everyone will see and say what’s happening? “
Regardless of the commitment he had in the crime of the week, calling plays or just giving some useful advice, it did not work. But because he had put it out, it was much more difficult to fix all the debt on the offensive coordinator. Jackson placed himself as part of the solution, offered a straw and did not like to be held responsible for the same horrible results.
Oh, and he and Todd Haley are also good.
“There’s nothing wrong with my relationship with Haley,” he added.
Maybe not, but forgive me not to accept it at the nominal value. Some interesting reports began to circulate Sunday evening, and reports made some light on the two men’s disagreement over the crime.
Jackson, according to ESPN, allegedly wants Browns to use more no-huddle offensive, faster faster and read options, playing designed to be better fit for where Mayfield is on his first season in the NFL. That type of game has not always worked. And it probably does not help Browns have a pretty bad group of recipients behind Landry. Haley prefers more traditional crime, more fallbacks that may be a blame behind the offensive line.
Change the arrangement of crimes, we learned via Charles Robinson at Yahoo Sports, would require permission from the owner, Jimmy Haslam.
The source of these reports, they appear to give Jackson a small defense for the team’s offensive fight, despite his “help” this week. No matter his weaknesses as head coach.
Jackson has always been quite good at getting his version of the events to the media in one way or another. He survives by creating chaos and then positioning himself as a victim and the person who can clean it up.
But this time it did not matter. Jackson got fired.
There is someone else who has Haslam’s ear now: General Manager John Dorsey. Not even a year at work, he has done much to help clear the team’s staff issues … to remove Jackson’s greatest apology for his shortcomings in the situation. The loss to Steelers and all the drama that followed was just too much for Hue.
It’s another hard season in the Dawg pound, but at least Browns can finally get a new head coach and on track to start winning.
