Daily Dawg Tags: Being held accountable

The Cleveland Browns have played a terrible brand of football for two straight seasons, and someone must be held accountable.

Another week of winless football means another week of some Cleveland Browns fans holding out hope for the first victory of the season.

That likely isn’t coming this Sunday as the Browns head out west to take on the Los Angeles Chargers, who have rebounded from an 0-4 start and are right back in the race to win the AFC West.

The Browns can barely piece together four complete quarters of football, let alone compete to win a game. They have had close finishes several times this season, but victory never felt close.

Someone has to be held accountable for all this losing, the same way Jimmy Haslam must be held accountable if he is found to have been a part of the fraudulent sales scheme at Pilot Flying J. What a mess.

Hue Jackson seems to be the likely candidate to be the fall guy and ultimately get fired if this team finishes 0-16 or 1-15, and I see no problem with that. Continuity for the sake of continuity isn’t always the best option.

There is still time to surprise us all and pick up some wins, although it is hard to enter any of the remaining five Sundays with that mindset. We here at Dawg Pound Daily will be rooting for the Browns, but we won’t be expecting much.

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