Hue Jackson’s day gets worse as DeShaun Watson shines


Perhaps Sunday’s loss was only the second-worst occurrence for Hue Jackson and the Browns.

News came out that Jackson sent a text message to DeShaun Watson before April’s draft, telling him to “be ready.” The Browns had two chances to pick Watson – they took Myles Garrett No. 1 then traded out of the 12th slot with Houston, which took Watson.

Watson leads the NFL in touchdown passes and looks like a budding superstar. Garrett also seems destined for greatness, but trading out of the 12th pick isn’t looking wise.

Jackson is 1-21 in his career coaching the Browns. The criticism gets stronger every week.

Why is Hue Jackson covering his mouth when he calls his plays ? What difference does it make ?

Browns are the worst franchise in the NFL. Hue Jackson is inept, Brown is lost and Haslam is a tool. On the plus side there is none.

#Browns now 1-21 since owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam cleared out front office and hired Hue Jackson as coach.

Hue Jackson didn't sign up for this. Nothing against Sashi Brown personally, he's a smart man, but he's not a football GM. That's on Haslams

In Hue Jackson's last 27 games as a head coach he is 2-0 on Christmas Eve....and 0-25 on EVERY other day.

Imagine being excited about hiring Hue Jackson as your HC and then going 1-21 over the next 22 games.
