Browns coach Hue Jackson bristles at suggestion of 0-16 season

September 7, 2016

This may be Cleveland's year in basketball, but football is a whole 'nother story.

In fact, Brian Billick suggested the Browns might go 0-16. Check out their schedule and see what you think.

The NFL Network analyst and Super Bowl-winning coach then backed off and said the Browns would win at least one game ... but he didn't seem to confident in it.

He was willing to bet it wouldn't be Week 1 at Philadelphia.


When told of Billick's analysis, Browns coach Hue Jackson bristled.

"Wow. Good for him. I didn’t know he worked here," Jackson told reporters.

"Just being honest. Nothing against Brian. I think it’s really interesting that everybody can comment on other people’s teams and don’t understand their inner workings. I have great respect for Brian, he's a great coach in this league, but we'll see if that's true. We'll see if what he says is true. We'll look back in 16 games and see if it's right. But I'm not going to get caught up in that.”

Browns fans weren't too impressed either.

The Browns may be bad once again, but winless? They have only six games against teams that reached the playoffs last season. Now the Falcons, that's a team with a tough schedule.
