Hue Jackson Is Getting Crushed For What He Said Last Night

Hue Jackson stands on the sidelines in the rain.

Last night, the Cleveland Browns enjoyed their first victory in 635 days, but now it's time to focus on the rest of their schedule. Unfortunately, head coach Hue Jackson diminished some of the energy around Ohio, as he made an interesting statement in his postgame press conference.

The talk of Thursday Night Football was Baker Mayfield's fantastic debut, leading the Browns to an improbable win. Although the former Heisman winner put on an absolute show for the fans, Jackson won't commit to starting him just yet.

When asked about Mayfield starting next week against Oakland, Jackson said "I have to watch the tape."

Perhaps, Jackson wants to inform Tyrod Taylor of the decision before he makes it public. Nonetheless, Mayfield clearly made a strong argument to start for the remainder of the season.

Despite entering in the second quarter, Mayfield had 201 passing yards and completed over 73 percent of his passes.

With Jackson refusing to commit to Mayfield right now, the majority of the football community is furious. You can read all of the Hue Jackson reaction here.

The Browns face the Raiders next Sunday on the road.

Regardless of Jackson's current comments about the quarterback position, it'd be surprising if Mayfield doesn't start.
