Daily Dawg Tags: Hue Jackson’s job is not in question


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Monday, Nov. 14.

Did everyone enjoy their Sunday without Cleveland Browns football?

A Sunday without Browns football allows fans to watch competitive games with a clear mind, giving us all hope of what may be possible if the Browns’ rebuild actually leads to success.

The current record of 0-10 has fans demoralized, and has even led to some giving up on Hue Jackson. But the Browns having any other coach besides Jackson in 2017 would be a disaster.

Fans should know by now that constantly changing the head coach is a recipe for failure, even if things seem hopeless right now. The key will be for ownership to realize this, as an 0-16 season could lead to a drastic, reactionary decision.

This roster is not the best, but this team should still have at least one or two wins right now. Jackson has made his mistakes, but it still doesn’t matter. He has to at least be given one more year so this team has a sense of stability.

Even having one win right now would likely mean the talk about firing Hue would be nonexistent, but too many losses can result in some crazy things.

Let’s just hope that Jimmy Haslam realizes the mistakes he made in the past and allows this to develop. If it doesn’t work out, that is fine. But at least he knows he didn’t blow it up before giving this group a chance. Let’s look at that and more in a Monday edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
