Hue Jackson was a failure as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns in every sense of the word, plain and simple. In his time with the Browns, Jackson finished with a record of 3-36-1. This season in Cleveland he was 2-5-1 before being fired by the Browns. 


Shortly after being fired by the Browns, Jackson was hired by his old team, the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are also in the AFC North, which means they play them twice a year -- both games were scheduled after Jackson was fired. 

That's a crazy stat at face value. Since Jackson's firing, the Browns have completely turned around their season, going 5-2, with two of those wins coming against Hue Jackson and the Cincinnati Bengals. If you've been doing the math, that's the same number of wins Jackson had as the head coach of the Browns. 

Maybe it's not a smart idea to go on ESPN and say the reason you lost games was that the players weren't good enough. Especially, if you still have to play those players two more times this year. 


Some might call that bad coaching, I call it Hue being Hue. Different phrase, same definition.
