CLEVELAND– It’s tough to be a Cleveland Browns fan. But this rough season is clearly no easier for Coach Hue Jackson.
After his team fell to the Giants Sunday leaving them 0-12 for the season, Jackson got emotional during a post-game press conference.
He was asked how he would spend time away from football during the upcoming bye week.
“I am going to be very honest with all of you, I don’t know how to do that yet because being 0-12 is probably the hardest thing ever,” he said.
Jackson went on to say that the responsibility falls on him.
“When things do not go right, it’s easy to point fingers at a lot of different people,” he said. “The best place to point it is at me. I’m the head of it…What I have to do is continue to coach this football team. We have to continue to get better.”
After the rest week, the team has four more games this season.
Jackson said everyone on the team is a fighter and that they will work their way out of the current situation.
“This will be the last time, this year, that we ever feel the way we feel,” he said. “I know that. I know that in my heart. I know that without question, and that is why I have always said if you are going to get us you better get us now because we are not going to feel like this a year from now.”
