The Browns Needed to Fire Hue to Save Baker

Hue Jackson
has no interest in developing young talent, never has and it showed in Baker
Mayfield.

Instead he
chose to try to get some early season victories with Tyrod Taylor instead of immediately
going with the 2018 first overall draft pick and former Heisman Trophy winner
as their day one starter.

It became
clear that once Taylor was injured that Mayfield was a far superior talent, that
there was more than just talent holding this team back and keeping it mired in
losing.

Jackson then
resorted to pushing offensive coordinator Todd Haley off the subway platform to
save his job. Haley, who is widely known to be a bit prickly wasn’t about to
play nice with the man maneuvering to set him up for the fall.

Ultimately
for the sake of the team and their high-priced rookie QB, GM John Dorsey
convinced owner Jimmy Haslam that send both Jackson and Haley to the unemployment
line was the best course of action.

Enter
defensive coordinator Gregg Williams as the interim head coach. Yes, that Gregg
Williams who was suspended as part of the New Orleans Saints’ Bounty Gate
scandal following the 2012 season and a failed stint as the Buffalo Bills head
coach. Williams is a defensive minded coach who will leave the heavy lifting on
offense to Al Saunders and Ken Zampese, two long time NFL assistants with good
pedigrees.

Firing Jackson and Haley is like sending Baker Mayfield
to live with his grandparents during a messy divorce. He will get a clean slate
going forward and the Browns can now set upon the real task of rebuilding
