Hue Jackson Makes Comment About Baker Mayfield, Set to Release Book Next Year

BrandonLittle


Hue Jackson is known for his terrible time in Cleveland where he went 3-36 in terms of his coaching record. A lot of it had to due with the tough nature of a rebuild, he just wasn’t very good at his job either.

Jackson is back in the news after telling Jake Trotter of ESPN that he is coming out with a book that will likely include some pieces about his time in Cleveland. 

Whether it is going to be about the good or the bad, it will probably include both. Jackson liked living in Cleveland, which is well known. There is no secret that the job was hard though as the Head Coach of the Cleveland Browns. The city demands a lot, when they have received very little. He never helped his cause whether it was throwing others under the bus or having no game plan.

Jackson decided to roll with Tyrod Taylor as the teams quarterback his final year, even when Baker Mayfield had shown he was a superior talent and gave the team a better chance to win. It eventually showed when Taylor went down with an injury and Mayfield did some winning, much of it was after Jackson was already fired. These comments from Jackson make you think what exactly he is implying. 

Set to release the book in the beginning of next year, it will be interesting to see what Jackson has to say. Cleveland Browns fans could be interested in that, just a matter if they will admit it. Could Jackson’s comment mean he had a problem with Mayfield off the field?

Rookie Nick Chubb set an NFL record in one game with 3 carries for 105 yards and a TD. The very next game Chubb got ... 3 carries. Dorsey had to trade Carlos Hyde to force Jackson to use Chubb. This tells you all you need to know about Hue's judgement.

Up and coming rookie Nick Chubb set an NFL record in one game with 3 touches for 105 yards and a TD. The next week Nick Chubb got....three touches. Dorsey finally had to trade Carlos Hyde in order to get Jackson to use Chubb. This tells you all you need to know about Hue Jackson's judgement.

I will be honest if I am wrong. I didn't know that about Haley. I was not ever saying those teams were good. They did have a lot more talent than the 99' expansion team though. There were a few stars, not many... you are asking for position groups better than average, this team was not average. The only postistion better than average was probably CB. Their Defense as a whole wasn't terrible (that does NOT mean
good). You were right, QB play was bad, and lots of turnovers put those defenses in bad spots. I am just saying Hue's teams were probably the 4th and 5th worst teams the Browns put on the field since they came back. The first two expansion years and the year they set the record for most consecutive quarters without an offensive TD (that was my low point as a Browns fan) were worse. In those seasons they did not go 0-16 or 1-15. He should not have made it to a 3rd season with a team with those records. There shouldn't have been a chance for Dorsey/Haley to sabotage Hue... he should have been fired ready. ...but he was there, and there was no reason for Dorsey to create disfunction through the whole franchise like that just to get Hue fired. We lost the best GM we had since we have been back because they weren't allowed to fire Hue.

I am sure I will have some haters here, and I am sorry to disappoint my Browns Brothers, but Jake Trotter has to go. He is the worst writer, the biggest exaggerator, he is all bait and click and nothing pisses me off more than bait and click. Especially from my hometown news. Fake news is bs and I am sorry if I offend anyone. BUT H. JACKSON SAYS...., " book that will likely include some pieces about his time in Cleveland" AND JAKR TURNS IT INTO " A HEAVY DOSE" If anyome knows him personally, could you tell me if he is just illeterate, stupid, doesn't know when he doesn't want to cite something he doesn't have to explode it for attention?
Again, I am sorry, I am just sick of the bait and click additions to get attention. There are many other ways to get attention. Go to the Executive Den, Hustler's Club, get some human attention Jake so you can write what you read and share it correctly not over hype it.

the decision to go with Tyrod Taylor wasn't a Hue Jackson call. They had decided and promised Tyrod they were going to start him when they traded for him. Dorsey has mentioned this several times and he admitted that Baker came along faster than they had originally thought... NEXT

the team gave the HC an expansion team AND the worst QB play in NFL history then had the audacity to want all these wins, Yeah this sounds like something Pete Smith would say ,

I find it funny how this guy writing the story says that Hue had no game plan or wasn't good at his job. Would this guy like to elaborate because I find this BS
