The Cleveland Browns are still in the midst of an aggressive and thorough rebuilding project. While these things take time, the Browns remain arguably the worst in the NFL and, with that as the backdrop, head coach Hue Jackson appears firmly on the hot seat.
In fact, there is now increasing buzz that the 52-year-old could be fired before the 2017 season even comes to a close.
It should be noted that Jackson’s ousting is not being fully reported at this point, indicating there could be some life left for his tenure in Cleveland should the winds change. Still, the Browns are a ghastly 1-25 (not a misprint) during his tenure and Cleveland has yet to claim a victory this season.
In some ways, the team is showing signs and they have largely been competitive on a weekly basis. Beyond that, Cleveland’s roster is incredibly young and, well, not overly clad with high-end talent at the moment. Still, it makes sense that Jackson’s leash would not be exceedingly long because, at the end of the day, NFL head coaches that lose 25 games in 26 attempts usually do not survive.
With a few weeks left, Jackson is reportedly in trouble and, even if he is easy to defend, you can see why.
