Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson should be nervous about his long-term prospects in his current role.
Hue Jackson had a Cleveland Browns‘ win within reach. However, he was unable to close the deal in the leadership role he was hired for.
From play-calling issues to not simplifying things enough for his rookie quarterback, DeShone Kizer, there have been many reasons why some are not in favor of Jackson returning next season. For most, if not all of those people, I am sure that they would have wanted to see him fired following Sunday’s Green Bay Packers loss.
Being up 14 heading into the fourth, Cleveland should be the victor. There is no excuse.

If you missed it, among the blunders Jackson made on Sunday included challenging a play that was right in front of and lost! When he saw Green Bay adjust their offense late, Jackson did not adjustment his defense. Those things and so much more caused plenty of frustration.
Jackson’s assurance that he will return by owner Jimmy Haslam hasn’t changed.
That said since no one ever knows what the Haslams will do or are thinking, everyone must be on their toes.
Yes, Haslam did vouch for Jackson, but what does general manager John Dorsey think? That is the main question.
I doubt Haslam goes against his word on Jackson but Dorsey should have been able to decide if Jackson is the coach he wants or not. Then again, he could next season after an offseason together.
Still, the Haslams already messed up everything with no president and Jackson reporting to ownership rather than Dorsey. Haven’t the Haslams seen how great ownership operates in the NFL when they owned part of the Pittsburgh Steelers? Obviously not.
I want to see stability as much as the next person. Exactly how long ownership will remain patient with Dorsey’s approach remains to be seen. The Haslams must allow Dorsey to choose his own coach if he wants — whenever that may be.
As much of a change is needed (and for some required), be prepared to be disappointed barring an offensive coordinator being added. The soonest a new head coach will be hired will be after next season, so buckle up and prepare for the newest turn and direction of the franchise.
