About time

The Cleveland Browns have fired coach Hue Jackson, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Monday.

The Browns are 2-5-1 this season, doubling the win total from Jackson's first two seasons with the team. Cleveland was 1-15 in his first season and 0-16 last season. 

Seven different quarterbacks started for Jackson's Browns and only Tyrod Taylor didn't have a losing record:

  • Taylor (1-1-1)
  • Baker Mayfield (1-4)
  • Robert Griffin III (1-4)
  • Kevin Hogan (0-1)
  • Josh McCown (0-3)
  • Cody Kessler (0-8)
  • DeShone Kizer (0-15)

The Browns also went 0-20 on the road during Jackson's tenure, the worst road record by any coach with a single team in the Super Bowl era (since 1966).

The Browns really can't do any worse by bringing in a new head coach. With Baker Mayfield under center, the future looks a lot brighter than it used to.
