Maybe it comes from watching the Browns botch up everything over the last decade, but the prompt and drama-free Hue Jackson hiring seemed to signal something unusual in Cleveland. Competence? A sense of purpose? Focus? I don’t know what you call it but, for a moment, the Browns have given fans a reason to believe.
Caveat: Jackson has announced his intention to call his own plays and not hire an offensive coordinator. So, as I said on Twitter, I’d like to put a courtesy hold on that Browns optimism.
