Cleveland Browns: Talking another 0-12 start in the DPD Podcast
The latest episode of the DPD Podcast breaks down the Cleveland Browns’ 0-12 start as time is running out to pick up a single win in 2017.
Four more games remain for the Cleveland Browns in 2017 before fans can solely focus their collective attention to the 2018 NFL Draft.
Dilly dilly to that.
The Browns have only been competitive in a few of the 12 losses this season, making the games on Sunday more painful to watch with each passing week.
This week was supposed to be different as Josh Gordon was coming back to dominate, but even Gordon’s talent couldn’t make up for some truly bad throws from DeShone Kizer.
We break it all down in the latest episode of the DPD Podcast.
Gordon came back and led the team in receiving, but did so on just four receptions. Kizer couldn’t seem to connect with his new star on the outside, but it was a beautiful sight the few times he did.
While Gordon’s return was a positive, the game once again leaves us with many more negatives. Two 0-12 starts is not great for a resume, and Hue Jackson’s job security has to be in question. Jimmy Haslam may have assured him he won’t be fired, but it is hard to stick with a coach if he goes 0-16 after a 1-15 season.
Then there is the front office, who has enabled Jackson. It may ultimately come down to Haslam and where he points the blame, although he may decide to clean house yet again. Wouldn’t that be something.
