Hue Jackson: I’m just trying to ensure there’s no parade


Faced with the very real possibility of going 0-16, Hue Jackson might be thrilled to accept last year’s 1-15 result.

Browns fans, no strangers to incompetency and losing, have been organizing a Jan. 6 parade in the event the team finishes winless.

“We don’t want to go in the record books that way by any stretch,” Jackson said of becoming the second team to go 0-16, joining the 2008 Lions. “Nobody does. We didn’t set out for this to happen this way. This is football. This is the way things go when things are not going well for you.”

As for the parade, the second year in a row fan Chris McNeil has begun organizing it, Jackson said fans can do as they please. But he wants to make sure there’s no winless campaign to, well, celebrate, in what McNeil calls the “Perfect Season Parade 2.0.”

“So everyone in our organization is working extremely hard to make sure that there’s not a parade,” he said. “But we have to uphold our end of it and make sure that we’re winning. So I get it. Would it be disappointing if they had one? Yes. But at the same time, I do get it. We just haven’t been good enough to get all that kind of talk stopped.”
