Todd Haley: Whatever decisions Hue Jackson makes, I’m 100 percent behind him

Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley downplayed an exchange with head coach Hue Jackson on the first episode of Hard Knocks.

In a meeting of the coaches shown in the show’s premiere, Haley challenged Jackson for giving veterans’ days off during training camp. Haley was more forceful than running backs coach Freddie Kitchens was in initially disagreeing with resting veterans.  Jackson replies that it’s his team and his way.

Haley said Wednesday he thought it was a healthy exchange, reiterating Jackson’s take on what to viewers seemed an awkward scene.

“The great thing about here is coach Jackson gives us assistant coaches the opportunity to speak our opinion,” Haley said, via quotes distributed by the team. “Ultimately, it is his decision of what he wants to do, and I will 100 percent support it. It is not always the case where assistants get to voice and opinion or thoughts. Some of them he is going to take. Some of them he is not. Whatever decision is made, I am 100 percent behind.”

Hue made some dumb game time management calls for sure. ................... Could another coach have pulled one win out of his butt? maybe but WTF difference would that make. 

I shortened your post to highlight a couple of points.

...and the 'difference' be if we had a half decent team....that needed a couple more wins to make the playoffs....but our HC makes dumb in game decisions.

I still don't think Hue is a good head coach, but he is a good man. He just doesn't seem to have the kind of edge these lazy kids need to play hard. Maybe some of the playmakers will inspire that spirit.

Preseason doesn't tell a lot, but one thing nobody can deny, Baker has a very, very quick release, and seemingly a radar-like scan of the field. Ghoolie like him originally, but then went off for one of the tall guys, but so far, it looks like for the first time since 1998, we made the right #1 pick. I still think Garrett is a homosexual, sissy-boy, penis kissing fairy. Don't think he has any instinct other than to survive and leave Cleveland. He is, a Bengal Tiger with no teeth.

Perhaps Josh Gordon's return will spark some added energy in the players? Sorry, but the majority of them just seem to be going through the motions.

I have been telling you guys for DECADES................. Coordinators are COFFEE FETCHERS and nothing more. Coffee Fetchers. Hoorta and Flugels would have you believe it is the COORDINATOR and not the Head Coach who runs the team. Not long ago Flugel went on and on about how Savage and Crennell were the genius behind their respective teams..............THEY WERE COFFEE FETCHERS...............

If you don't think Haley publicly kneeling down and kissing Hue Jacksons asss.........validates what I have been saying all along, then you are blinded by your hate.

I picked up on this IMMEDIATELY........... I ear marked it as THE ONE MOST IMPORTANT part of this episode. Was it? You tell me? Haley makes a press conference to kiss Hue's asss and announce that he is Hue's bihtch.

Will the OC bring some of his own ideas? Of course he will. BUT BUT BUT.................. which ideas are accepted and when those ideas are used???? ALL HUE JACKSON.

You know, I often forget that most of you guys probably never even had an office, maybe not even a desk. Hell, some of you probably never even had a job. But just listen to Ghoolie and you will learn about life. The QB is the most important player on the field (thats why they get the biggest paydays, and have rules made to protect them), the HC is, and always will be the most important, and powerful position on a football team. Hue is #1 with Haslam..................If Haslam announcing that Hue doesn't report to Dorsey didn't convince you, Haley bowing down after making a foible, surely does.

Life's lesson?

Coordinators fetch coffe, and make public asss kissing statements.

We gave the guy a handful of sh1t and asked him to turn it into a magic brownie. Could another coach have pulled one win out of his butt? maybe but WTF difference would that make. I predict a lot of you will be firmly slobbering on his knob and eating crow by game 8.

A few random musings from the most recent episode. I can’t seem to help myself from watching them twice.

I’m really liking Todd Haley. This sentiment has been said by others, so l guess l’m just echoing that, but man he seems like a real genuine dude with an even keeled and confident approach to dealing with everyone in the building and on the field.

That is the oldest l have ever seen Jim Brown look. I know he’s old and all, but he looks like he’s aged 10 years since last year.

There’s something about Tyrod Taylor’s communication style that l really like. He strikes me as one of those guys who speaks only when he needs to, and therfore commands attention when he actually does. A quiet confidence kind of thing. 

There was a random scene where his dad showed up and he signed a football for him, glanced over his shoulder and waved, and over walks Baker. He beckoned a #1 pick without uttering a word.

Is it me or does Baker sound like he makes Waterboy-esque squeals when he makes a TD throw?

Baker looks like a natural leader which is saying something for a rookie.

Ya, I watched this one twice, too.

My sentiments exactly on Taylor, always knew he was a good athlete, had no idea he was the smart, quiet leader type. I like how he gives the coaches ideas on how to approach the players.

Mayfield just has "it". None of us have been able to honestly say that since Kosar. So let's just be patient and enjoy the ride, it is going to be a great one.

David NoJokeU is a breakout superstar in waiting. Not only a freak athlete at his postion, but a samrt, articulate guy and a good teammate who seems really dialed in.

Myles Garret may turn out to be my favorite of them all.

Mayfield, NoJoke, Garrett and Ward ... possible four future great ones on each side of ball.

Calloway has first round upside.

Landry and Kirksey are terrific leaders.

Flash has not entered the building yet and he may be the most talented of all.

Gonna be a fun ride.

myles is making our starting o line's vaginas sore but he's still a penis kisser in ghoolies mind. We havent had a DE with this "onfield" skillset ever. He's not a gym warrior and a poosy on the field. Our well over 300lb lineman cant handle him while he's at training camp speed and mentality. He's in like 4th gear now holding 5th and 6th in reserve for the season. Rem last year he tweeked thst ankle in camp. And still he's hitting our linemans uterine walls too hard.

Let me add an interesting name ... Terrance Mitchell.

I considered him the third most important of the three free agent CBs we signed.

He wasn't highly rated by PFF and I figured he was just a Chiefs project that Dorsey didn't want to let go of.

But if you have watched the first two episodes of HK, that guy is blanketing somebody on every throw. I mean blanketing.

His career thus far is not impressive, has bounced around  ... but Dorsey must have saw something because he is winning the starting job and looks pretty bad ass out there so far. I hope he is a find.
