There were some concerns about the safety of head coach Hue Jackson’s job, but he says the powers that be with the Cleveland Browns support him

We all saw the fallout from the Cleveland Browns latest loss. They had their sixth game this season decided by a score — their fourth overtime game — and once again came up short.

The 2-4-1 mark isn’t indicative of how hard they have played.

For many, the blame for that falls on head coach Hue Jackson. And after their latest defeat, there were reports that he was on thin ice and should be on “red alert” in terms of job security.

Not so fast says Jackson. The master of pushing the blame onto everyone else seems to have convinced the front office, once again, that he’s not to blame for the undisciplined play, ill-timed penalties, and poor game management.

Jackson spoke with the press and according to Mary Kay Cabot of, he says he has the support of the front office — including general manager John Dorsey and team owner Jimmy Haslam.

The normally chatty Jackson wouldn’t elaborate on the conversations he had with the powers that be, but he made sure to let anyone listening know that was private.

Jackson has been a lightning rod for controversy in his three seasons with the Browns. He now owns a putrid record of 3-35-1 with Cleveland and the fans seem like they’re ready to revolt.

As for Hue, he’s just ready to get things fixed. After their loss, Jackson says he’s focused on fixing the offense, which has been stagnant for long stretches this season. With that being Jackson’s specialty, this could be his last chance to save his job.
