Hue Jackson will not be left in London, whatever the consequence of Sunday’s tilt versus the Minnesota Vikings.
NFL Community Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning on NFL GameDay Kickoff that Jackson’s job in Cleveland is secure for now.
“I am instructed at this level Hue Jackson is secure, even [if there was] an unpleasant loss [today],” Rapoport stated. “… However firing Hue Jackson now, on the airplane dwelling, as we have seen up to now, could be in opposition to every part the Browns are attempting to do. Adjustments are anticipated to return on the finish of the season in some kind or vogue. However at this level, they don’t seem to be anticipated to contain Hue Jackson.”
Whether or not these end-of-year plans will embody Jackson must be decided by how the ultimate 9 video games of the season end up. The Browns are 1-22 within the head coach’s first two seasons heading into Sunday’s showdown in London.
Fixed biking of coaches has precipitated a few of the tumult inside a Browns group that begins over each couple of years. Scrapping Jackson could be one other new starting for a franchise screaming for consistency. Nevertheless, might the Browns deliver again a coach after one other one-win season or — Lord, badist us — an Zero-16 document?
For now, the one reply is that Jackson will not be left with a pink slip on a London tarmac. All the pieces else is wait-and-see.
