Two miserable seasons. One measly win.

Still Terrell Edmunds Game Jersey , Cleveland coach Hue Jackson continues to have the ”unwavering” support of owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam, who believe his third year will bring out the best in him – and the Browns.

”I think we will see the real Hue Jackson,” Jimmy Haslam said Saturday before practice.

Jackson has lost 31 of 32 games since taking over a Cleveland franchise that has undergone numerous coaching changes and front-office upheaval since the team’s NFL expansion return in 1999. However, the Haslams feel the worst is over, and thanks to a roster overhaul directed by general manager John Dorsey, Jackson has the pieces to win.

”He has good quarterbacks, he has some skill players, he has a veteran offensive lineman – now Breeland Speaks Youth Jersey , we have to figure out left tackle – and three really good (running) backs and a good defense.”

Jackson has also been helped by not also handling offensive coordinator duties. With some urging and the blessing of the Haslams, he turned his offense over to Todd Haley, who was fired after six seasons with Pittsburgh.

”You have to give Hue credit for bringing in Todd Haley, which I think will allow Hue to be the head coach,” Haslam said. ”I think this will be the first opportunity Hue will have to do what we know he can do as head coach as a leader. Even though Todd will be calling all of the shots on offense, I think Hue will obviously have some impact there like he will defense. We are excited to see it.”

The Browns went 0-16 last season, matching the 2008 Detroit Lions as the only teams in NFL history to lose all 16 games. But while there were many Cleveland fans calling for Jackson’s firing, his players remained united behind him and the Haslams decided to bring him back for another year.

That doesn’t mean Jackson’s job is permanently safe Will Hernandez Jersey , but Haslam refused to say there was a mandate on wins this season.

”No, we’re excited about Hue Jackson,” Haslam said. ”I think our commitment to him has been unwavering and still is.”

As the 2017 season unraveled, the Haslams chose to fire head of football operations Sashi Brown, whose analytics-heavy approach yielded mixed results and not enough wins. Dorsey, who guided Kansas City’s turnaround from 2013 to 2016, replaced Brown and spent this past offseason acquiring talent.

Haslam felt it was fair to assess Jackson’s upcoming third season as his first.

”I think in some ways you could say because of the talent he’s had, particularly at quarterback Cheap Josh Rosen Jersey , particularly last year, it could view it as his first year, but we don’t look at that,” Haslam said. ”I know everybody’s saying Hue has to win this many games or he has to win that many games. We don’t look at it (like that).”

”We’re really excited about the relationship that Hue and John have and not just that they have but their staffs have, how the building is working together. I mean we’re in here at 7 this morning talking about who else we might need to add to the roster. So we feel good about the chemistry, we feel good about the work ethic, but at the same time, we all understand we’ve got to win games.”



New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has lymphoma and will soon begin treatment Anthony Miller Jersey , and he said he is encouraged by the prognosis.

Gettleman, hired in the offseason to replace Jerry Reese, released a statement Tuesday about his health. He said he recently ”underwent an annual physical, during which it was discovered I have lymphoma. Over the past week, I have undergone more testing to determine the course of treatment, which is scheduled to start in the very near future.

”The doctor’s outlook for the treatment and the prognosis is positive, and so am I.”

Gettleman said he plans to continue working ”as much as the treatment process will allow.”

The 67-year-old Gettleman formerly was GM with the Carolina Panthers.

When Gettleman was hired by New York in December, he said DJ Moore Jersey , ”My plan is to come in here every day and kick (butt). That’s my plan, OK? And I’m going to keep doing it until they either take my key card or the Lord calls me home.”

Before joining the Panthers in 2013, Gettleman was a Giants personnel executive for 15 years. He was on the staff when the team won Super Bowls for the 2007 and 2011 seasons – two of the seven Super Bowls in which Gettleman has been a part in his 30-year NFL career.

In his four seasons as Carolina’s general manager, the Panthers won 40 games and three NFC South titles. They lost in the 50th Super Bowl to Denver after finishing 15-1, the best record in the league. For 2015, Gettleman was voted The Sporting News’ NFL Executive of the Year.

At the end of his statement in which he also thanked Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch for their support and encouragement, Gettleman added: ”I look forward to being back at full strength and devoting all my energy to helping make this 2018 New York Giants team the best it can be.”

Assistant general manager Kevin Abrams is likely to assume some of Gettleman’s duties while the GM is undergoing treatments.
