The Cleveland Browns are the last winless team in the NFL, their rookie quarterback has been something close to a disaster and the general manager who’d been tasked with turning this franchise around has just been fired. Hue Jackson remains, though, and the announcement of Sashi Brown’s dismissal included the note that he would be coach of the Browns next regardless of who is brought in as the team’s new personnel decision-maker.

It makes sense for Jackson to throw support behind his players and coaching stuff during this time of upheaval, basically. It’s never too early to start planting the seeds of a culture change that could help Cleveland emerge from the depths of football next season. Jackson, though, took a much different approach with the media on Thursday in the wake of Brown’s dismissal.

That’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of the Browns’ offensive firepower. It’s also extremely self-serving to submit that Jackson, Cleveland’s play-caller, knew in advance that his team would have trouble putting points up on the board. Needless to say, it will be interesting to find out whether Jackson makes good on his tease of hiring an offensive coordinator next season.

From his perspective, doing so would make more sense if the Browns opt against affording him influence when it comes to tweaking the roster this offseason.

While Browns are now looking to finish 2017-18 on a high note, yet another No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick is likely on the horizon for the struggling AFC North franchise.
