Dwayne Haskins Jr

Dwayne Haskins Jr. was an American football player who played in the National Football League (NFL) for three seasons. He played as a quarterback for the Washington Redskins from 2019 to 2021.

What should Browns GM John Dorsey tell ownership to do with Jackson?

 

NOTE:  On NNR Samantha Bunten of NBC Sports and I discussed the news of the day and Analysis of week 14 on fryingpansports.com/radio-show.

On NNR, I said several weeks ago that if I had the power, I would fire everyone in the building including the cleaning staff.  Now that the “Cleveland Tans” are facing the possibility of 2 seasons with a single win and so many fans showing up dressed as empty seats, it is time to ask the hard questions.

  • How do you get the most loyal and long-suffering fans in the league to buy season tickets for a team that has lost 31 games in 2 seasons?
  • How do you bring back a head coach that has had so many brain cramps and has lost all but 1 game in two years?
  • How can Dorsey keep the scouting staff that did not have the guts to take a QB when they were still on the board at the Browns pick?
  • What makes us think that QB coach David Lee can develop a rookie QB when he has not done much to Kizer develop at all this year?
  • How can Dorsey keep a Defensive staff that has 1 DB

The Browns front office must go!

There is a lot of conversation about whether Kizer is franchise QB the team has needed for so long.  He might be exactly what the Browns need at the most important position in the game.  But it is hard to tell when so many throws that are right on target are dropped by a receiver group that is worse than 2 teams I coached in semi-pro football.

The brain-dead people making draft picks have given HC Jackson a team that is green as baby peas.  They let the 1 WR that had 1000+ yards and was new to the WR position go but brought in a guy that could not catch a cold standing naked on the edge of Lake Erie in a sleet storm.  He also has 1 1000 yard season but has been in the league for years.

They also passed up 2 other QBs that could have started the “rebuild” much earlier and given beaten down Browns fans some hope.  If this group made good choices with those extra picks I might agree.  They do not and the proof is the 1 win we have seen in the two years that they have been in control.
