The Browns are Amused by the Mere Thought of Hue Jackson
It seems abundantly clear that the Cleveland Browns improved simply by asking Hue Jackson to leave the team facility forever.
Jackson and his penetrating coaching acumen will be facing his old team this week in a hotly anticipated AFC North showdown.
The idea that their former coach couild possibly have a tactical advantage against them was actively scoffed at by several Browns.
Here's Mayfield, who without question benefitted the most from Jackson's departure.
That droll reply pretty much sums up the situation.
Coach Jackson is here for our amusement, and we are all better people for it.
In fact, Mayfield wasn't the only Brown to scoff at this notion:
Browns OL Joel Bitonio says perceived advantage Bengals will have against Browns because of Hue Jackson’s knowledge of offense/defense no different than going up against a former teammate.— Andrew Gribble (@Andrew_Gribble) November 21, 2018
While that dude was a bit more diplomatic than Mayfield, the main thesis stands.
Not one single soul is genuinely concerned about Hue Jackson.
It looked like OL Joel Bitonio was about to burst into a fit of laughter.
And who could blame him?
It makes perfect sense that Jackson would land in Cincinnati again, as his continued NFL employment is about as mystifying as the lengthy tenure of Marvin Lewis.
What a tease.
