Finally, a sign of progress this year!

Sounds like he wants a GM that knows football players and the locker room as well as stats.

Magnanimous?

Sorry never accepted the sundae bet, just as you never accepted the $100.

Nero's a chizzler?

If you would rather send me the $100....that would be fine

I'm all for keeping Hue. Not the coaches fault if he doesn't have the players. Give him at least one more year, and some decent players to work with. As some one said....."expecting a coach to win with this group is like asking a doctor to perform open heart surgery with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver."

Besides Human Nature, in that you can't put 5 people in a room and get them to agree on anything, I don't see why it's such a major problem to get the general manager and the coaching staff at least on the same page?

I think it was General George S Patton who said it, one of my favorite quotes indeed: 

'If everyone in a group of people thinks alike, it's because someone is not thinking.'

It IS the coaches fault that he:

A. Cannot manage a clock

B. Cannot call decent plays

C. Seems dazed and confused on the sideline

D. Can't seem to coach up his QBs...despite his reputation.

E. Cannot put a disciplined team on the field.

F. Cannot coach any team better than 1-27.

Take a bow, Ghoolie, you called this one...

The reason why this team is 1-27 is Hue.

Sachi deserves fired for his poor QB choices.

Hue should be fired because day to day, week to week, play to play, Hue has been a Fuyuckup.

You think?

I still think the new GM will have a say in who the HC is, regardless of what Jimmy said today.

Exactly Mark, no GM candidate worth a hill of beans is going to go along with that line of thinking if his opinion is Hue is part of the problem...

"this guy is going to be fired" "that guy is going to be fired"

"the other guy is going to be fired"months later, sashi gets fired.

"SEE? I WAS RIGHT"Sachi had to go - arrogantly made stupid choices/mistakes. so there ya go.

Figured to be true- the weak leak in a chain has to be fixed - take out the weak link, install a quality link.

Don't let the door give you a concussion on the way out, sachi.

Putting a bean counter lawyer in charge with the final say-so? Jimmy finally figured out it was a bad idea. At least he left us with more cap room than any other team. New guy= please use wisely. With 20\20 hindsight, you can almost bet Sashi torpedoed the McCarron deal. Not that IMHO it was a BAD idea, and we were giving up way too much for AJ.

For those that care, this is Haslam's official statement regarding the firing of Sashi

Statement from Owner Jimmy Haslam:

"We have great appreciation and gratitude for Sashi's commitment and leadership to our organization but believe transitioning to someone with strong experience and success in drafting and building consistently winning football teams is critical to the future of the Cleveland Browns. Today we informed Sashi that we were going in a new direction. The 2018 draft and offseason is pivotal for our franchise, we need to ensure that we maximize our opportunity for success; with our picks, free agency and building our roster. Hue Jackson will remain our coach and will return for the 2018 season but we feel it is necessary to take significant steps to strengthen our personnel department. We have begun the process of having productive conversations regarding leadership of our football operations and will provide further updates when appropriate. We thank Sashi for all his hard work and dedication to the Cleveland Browns."

Reading between the lines- I think Sashi was doing a terrible job in that regard.

Only problem Steve is who will have the major input in the 2018 draft? I don't trust Hue's QB acumen at all, (were RG II and Kessler really his idea) ? It's damn critical to get it right for once. OR, OTOH- Hue wanted Wentz and Watson, and the anal-itics guys crammed Kizer down his throat? 

Hue is certainly a "nice guy" players coach, but we've documented his gameday shortcomings ad nauseum.

The aj mccarron deal was a desperation move on hues part cause he was saddled in the offseason with ossweiler, kessler, hogan and kizer. Think about that. Peyton manning wouldnt even contemplate having anything to do with cleveland with "that" qb situation. 

Hue wants mccarron as someone to play fir the team while the #1 pick next year studies under him.

Jimmy Haslem is about to find out why the raiders fired Hue Jackson, Should be a pretty fun time. Also It was me who called out sashi brown being a fall guy for hue when he was hired. Expect an OC in the offseason and a short leash for Hue Jackson in 2018 IF he makes it to the season that is. Cant really trust anything Jimmy is saying anyway. We'll know how the analytics have been affected at the end of season if/when more people are released and further at the draft and Free Agency period through the various data sets that come from it. I'm holding out hope that they fire Hue at the end of season if we go 0-16 which for the betterment of the team I've been hoping for since the season opener. Thanks for the Future Sashi :)

I suppose that's OK- but AJ is a RFA next year- and the Bengals can tender him, they certainly won't just let him walk away for nothing. If they put a second round tender on him- no thanks. Right now that would mean the Browns would have to give up the #33 pick for him. Too much, IMHO. (You have to give up your pick- I'd have no problems giving them the second rounder we have from the Eagles, which is going to be at the bottom of the second round. )

I give up with Haslam, this organisation is going nowhere. 

So Hue is a great coach and it’s the players that are all bad. Got it. 

Couldn't agree more. There is enough talent on this team to be a 5- 11   6 - 10 club. Hue blows. Haslam Blows. What the hell is a new exec going to do in 1 year?

How do win 5 games in the nfl with a qb that routinely shts the bed in the endzone and wr's that cant catch? Ur here every week bemoaning our lack of talent at multiple positions offense and defense, yet now claim this collection of camp trade me downs are good for 5-6 games? Ummm no, they're not. 

How does this brand new claim of urs gel with ur very recent assertion that our defense is worse than last years? Where are u pulling these 5-6 wins from if everything across the board is worse than last year?

I would sincerely hope Tom- at least get us a Pro Bowl level QB. If Gordon can stay out of trouble, the Browns have offensive talent similar to the Texans- and we saw what they did when Watson started throwing the rock. Derek Anderson was a one season fluke. Since the 50s it's been Otto and Bernie- and that's about it. 

Question is just how patient is Jimmy going to be with this "X" version of a rebuild? There is some talent in place- and I agree, Hue doesn't know how to use it.

MHO is I think he's wrong about the defense- but spell Red Zone follies K-I-Z-E-R.

Good. 

I do wish they would can Hue, or at the very least, get him an OC because he is awful.

DePodesta needs to go to next...

 

These analytic douches set us up with draft picks, no doubt about it.

But we can't keep shooting ourselves in the foot with these stupid draft blunders.

 

Hire a GM who can draft well, 

Get this fixed because it is a dumpster fire

Does anyone think the term "Dumpster Fire" has about been played out?

How about being a bit more creative:

We have here a Cacophony of Clowns running this team.

How stupid do you have to be to announce you're keeping your coach... your crappy coach...?

Why couldnt Haslam just say he's firing Sashi and reevaluating Hue at the end of the year?  He constantly puts his foot in his mouth when he makes these moves... Let the new guy pick the coach. If he doesnt want Hue, then get somebody new.  It shouldn't be ths owner's decision...

Pretty sure Haslam is just cheap and doesnt want to pay Hue for 2 years after firing him...
