Hue Jackson wants you to know winning 1 game the last 2 years was not easy

 “I don’t think anyone else could’ve done this job for the past 2 years.”

Fresh off securing the second 0-16 season in NFL, Hue Jackson provided a quote that raised a lot of eyebrows. It also probably made a bunch of Browns fans sick.

Take it away, Hue!:

That quote doesn’t exactly come off very well coming from him. Jackson went 1-15 last season and 0-16 in 2017. I’m not a mathematician, but 1-31 does not seem great.

Now to be fair, Jackson hasn’t been put in a great position to win. It’s clear the Browns have been committed to a rebuild by stocking up on draft picks and trying to build the team through the draft. You can see flashes there at least on the defensive side — the Browns gave up only one 300-yard passing game all season.

Because the reception to his quote was not great, Jackson attempted to clarify what he meant by saying what he did:

That still doesn’t come off a whole lot better. It honestly takes a lot of guts to pat yourself on the back after nearly going 0-16 in 2016 and then actually doing it in 2017. Though it appears by all accounts, he’s going to keep his job. So I suppose he can say what he wants.

But things will get better for the Browns before they get worse, right?

OK, perhaps this could get messier.

Happy 2018, Browns fans!
