Daily Dawg Tags: Toughest decision in 2017 is a familiar one
Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson is facing a tough decision that has been a common problem for Browns coaches since 1999.
Writers and fans all around the country seem to have an opinion on the Cleveland Browns’ quarterback situation. A simple Google search of Cody Kessler, DeShone Kizer or Brock Osweiler will bring up articles saying why each player should and shouldn’t win that starting job.
Such is life with the Browns.
But the only opinion that matters is that of Hue Jackson, as his choice for the starting job will determine how this team will do in 2017. And after a 1-15 season, Jackson needs to make the right choice to keep fans engaged and in the seats beyond October.
The good news is that expectations are low, so poor play from the quarterback position at the beginning of the season won’t fall solely upon Jackson. However, he must be able to make the right adjustments to get someone in there who can help this team improve after what was a season everyone in Cleveland would like to forget.
We take a look at that and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
