Hue Jackson is sick of people thinking the Browns will go 0-16 (though that’s a real possibility)

Hue Jackson thinks the Browns are going to surprise some people.

Hue Jackson has heard enough about Cleveland going winless this season. According to Pro Football Talk, the Browns' first-year head coach was asked in a press conference earlier this week about former Ravens coach Brian Billick saying the team won't win a game this year. Jackson doesn't agree.

"I don't want anybody to say we can't win anything, I just don't think that's right, I don't think it's fair," Jackson said. "But at the same time I know how hard these guys work, I know what the expectation is and we've got to go prove it"

It makes sense that Jackson would have confidence his team wouldn't be that bad. Billick is right, though: the Browns have a tough schedule and haven't inspired any confidence by losing all four preseason games.

Picking their potential wins is tough. The AFC North will present Cleveland with six tough games; Cincinnati and Pittsburgh were playoff teams last year, and Baltimore is a contender again with a healthy team. Then there's non-conference games against the likes of New England and Dallas.

But as bad as Cleveland has been, they've won at least three games a season in the last decade. The organization has, in fact, never had a winless season before. And they start right out of the gate on Sunday with Philadelphia Eagles, who aren't very good either and will be starting a rookie quarterback that played sparingly in one preseason game. Who knows, maybe Cleveland will prove Billick wrong in only a matter of days.
