Best Reason to Believe in the Browns: Hue Jackson

Everyone talks about the Browns’ horrible track record at quarterback since 1999 — that famous jersey with all their names basically sums up the problem — but the team’s also suffered through just about as many head coaches during that span. Remember Chud? Oh, lord. How about Mangini? This season, hopefully, the powers that be got it right. Hue Jackson arrives from the Bengals with a long track record of success, a purported ability to develop quarterbacks, and the gravitas that has been so lacking on the sidelines for years. It’s not going to be a quick turnaround — wait until next year, folks — but Hue Gotta Believe that the turnaround will actually happen this time.
