Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson decided to bench DeShone Kizer for just one week as the rookie is set to start this Sunday.

I hope no Cleveland Browns fans got used to the idea of Kevin Hogan as the starting quarterback. Not that he inspired much confidence anyway in his Week 6 start.

Hogan is headed back to the sidelines as DeShone Kizer gets his starting job back for this Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

It may seem odd to only bench Kizer for one week, doesn’t seem like enough time to learn, but he remains this team’s best quarterback. And with an 0-6 record, Hue Jackson is desperate for a win and needs the most talented players on the field.

The week off should have helped Kizer in theory, yet it takes more time to develop a young quarterback. Years are sometimes needed, not just one week.

This is the perpetual cycle Browns fans are used to, so hopefully Kizer can come back and play well and end the cycle for good. Or at least for the rest of 2017.

We take a look at this and more in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
