So, many, including us, wondered how Hue Jackson would defend bringing Briles to Cleveland for a visit with the team, since there really doesn't seem to be a defense. Here's his answer:
"What happened at Baylor's at Baylor." For a guy whose hardline stance on character drew plaudits from Browns fans, that's not a great answer. And for a team that just christened a statue of an alleged serial domestic abuser, it's another example to the fans of how they feel about women.
As Dan Labbe writes over at Cleveland.com:
"Whatever's happened at Baylor, I'm not condoning," Jackson said, "or him being here says that we condone anything."Tone deaf indeed. But what else would you expect from the Browns.
His presence may not mean they condone what was alleged at Baylor. It certainly appears they are tone-deaf to it, though.
