Haslams continue unwavering support for Hue Jackson
There have been two constants for the Cleveland Browns since Jimmy and Dee Haslam purchased the team in the fall of 2012.One is the constant losing that bottomed out with the Browns going 1-31 the past two seasons. (At least Browns fans hope that was the bottom.)The other is the Haslams’ annual insistence that they have learned from their past mistakes and that the times are finally changing for the better.That was on full display on Saturday Womens David Njoku Jersey , when the Haslams met with the media at training camp and said that, as far as they are concerned, no one should hold the past two seasons against head coach Hue Jackson. As Jimmy Haslam told ohio.com:Oh boy!We have to give the Haslams credit for not placing an arbitrary win total on whether or not Jackson becomes the first Browns head coach since Romeo Crennel to see a fourth season with the team. There are too many unpredictables throughout the course of an NFL season to put a hard number on a win total. But it continues to be baffling how the Haslams seem willing to absolve Jackson of any complicity in what went on the past two seasons. Not to dive to deeply into it, but it is well documented that Jackson’s fingerprints are all over the quarterback mess and that he continually undermined the previous front office. There is also 32 games worth of evidence that highlight Jackson’s deficiencies in clock management, play calling and overall awareness during games.The Haslams enable it all by having an organizational structure in place where both the head coach and the general manager report directly to them, meaning the last person in the room with them has the advantage in disagreements. (Although it is hard to see Jackson trying to pull an end around on general manager John Dorsey the way he did last fall with the trade attempt for Cincinnati Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron.)There is no question the talent on the roster is better than it was a year ago, which automatically puts pressure on Jackson and the coaching staff to find a way to post a few wins this fall. While it can’t be just about the final record, the Haslams do have to determine some criteria for evaluating Jackson once the season is over. Playing close games is nice, winning is even better, but there has to be a tangible way to figure this all out after the final whistle.Because if the Haslams keep doing what they have always done, it is hard to see how Browns fans can truly believe the franchise has finally turned a corner. Below Womens Nick Chubb Jersey , we analyze the snap counts and stats on defense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders.Defensive LinePosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsI am still puzzled at what has led to such a dramatic shift in defensive line reps for Gregg Williams from 2017 to 2018. Again, I am 100% on board with playing Myles Garrett for the majority of the game, but this was another overtime game and he was on the field for 95% of the snaps. Can’t that number be lowered just a tad? Chris Smith showed some really good things the past two games, but this week, with the return of Emmanuel Ogbah, Smith only played a total of 5 snaps.Garrett had 9 tackles — although Cleveland struggled to bring down Marshawn Lynch at times, Garrett was making run stops left and right. Per PFF:LinebackerPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsJoe Schobert led the Browns with 14 tackles, playing every snap out of 92. He also registered the team’s first sack of the game, and Jamie Collins had a sack later on. Schobert was boxed out by TE Jared Cook on one of his touchdown grabs over the middle. Some good defense in another instance led to an interception for CB E.J. Gaines.Christian Kirksey played a lot of snaps (90%) in his first week back.Genard Avery continues to generate pressure, having 4 quarterback hits on Derek Carr.CornerbackPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsDenzel Ward played every snap, but had a very quiet game — my initial instinct is that he wasn’t targeted very often.The biggest defensive issue in this game was the loss of Terrance Mitchell Authentic Duke Johnson Jersey , who now appears to be out for the season. Mitchell had a strong start to the game, but after his exit, T.J. Carrie played and was abused the rest of the game by the Raiders’ receivers. The play we saw from Carrie against Oakland is reminiscent of what Corey Coleman was doing to him in training camp, and look where Coleman is now. Carrie is definitely the one bust that John Dorsey acquired this offseason.SafetyPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsAlthough he gave up the last touchdown to TE Jared Cook, this looked to be another great game for FS Damarious Randall. He had an interception with a long return, and later made a great read and tackle in the open field in the red zone.The Browns are definitely sticking with their rotation at safety between Derrick Kindred and Jabrill Peppers. Something seems wrong about the fact that the defense was on the field for 92 plays, and your first-round safety from a year ago couldn’t find a way to get on the stat sheet, though.From PFF, the Browns were fortunate their secondary issues on Sunday weren’t worse: Custom Chicago Bears Jerseys
