When Hue Jackson took the job as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, he knew it was going to be a challenge turning things around in Cleveland. What he didn't know was he would lose his starting quarterback after just one game, his back-up quarterback after the second game, the team's center, a defensive end and now one of his star receivers Corey Coleman, who broke his hand in practice.
It's incredible to say the least. For the first time in a long time, the Browns have a head coach, who is a players coach. A guy who could get the most out of his guys, and now the players are falling faster than a rock being dropped off the top of the Terminal Tower.
Jackson has his work cut out for him folks. He is behind the eight-ball so to speak, and things aren't going to change quickly for his Browns. Losing Coleman, isn't going to make it any easier for the Browns rookie QB Cody Kessler this Sunday.
At least he will have Terrelle Pryor to throw to, and Pryor wants to win so bad, he said he is willing to die on the field for this team. Lets hope that doesn't happen. Lets hope Kessler doesn't get killed either this Sunday.
The Cleveland Browns are clearly living under a black cloud for some reason, and they are running out of guys that should have been able to help the team win.
Jackson is going to have to pull out all the stops this week. He is going to have to reach down deep and try to make something good happen in game-3. His only problem, and it's a big one is he may not have the talent on the field that can contend in the NFL, no matter how good he is at bringing out the best in his players.
Hue knew this was going to be tough, now he has to stand tall, and reach within himself to motivate the guys he has left. It's going to be a long season I think.....
