Browns owner Jimmy Haslam finally tried the patient Antworten

approach with his head coach.That didn't work either.Haslam made his fourth coaching change since 2012 by firing Hue Jackson Womens Rashad Fenton Jersey , who won just three of 40 games over two-plus seasons and then lost his job because of a feud with offensive coordinator Todd Haley that went public and threatened to turn a promising season into another one of those Cleveland catastrophes.Haslam fired Jackson and Haley within hours of each other on Monday, a day after the Browns (2-5-1) lost their 25th consecutive road game 鈥?one shy of the NFL record."Hopefully, we made a big step today," Haslam said. "It is hard to win in the NFL. If anybody knows that, it is us. I think the message today is we are not going to put up with internal discord. We want people who are collaborative and work together."As for his poor track record in finding coaches, Haslam offered no excuses."I will accept the blame because ultimately, it is the person at the head of the ship," he said. "I will take the blame as ownership. I can't explain it more than that. We have had different situations with different people. I know that it is something that we are not going to tolerate moving forward."Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is Cleveland's interim coach, and running backs coach Freddie Kitchens will take over for Haley.Haslam said Williams, who coached Buffalo from 2001-03, was the only in-house candidate considered to finish the season. While Williams has extensive experience and won a Super Bowl, he also has a checkered past. He was suspended by the league for a full season in 2012 for his role in the "Bountygate" scandal that rocked the New Orleans Saints.Haslam said it's premature to consider the next coaching hire for the Browns, who are 22-81-1 since he and his wife, Dee, agreed to buy the franchise in 2012.The main objective now is to get through the season's second half, beginning with a matchup on Sunday against the high-scoring, Kansas City Chiefs (7-1)."We will have a collaborative effort in everything that we do here Authentic Rashad Fenton Jersey ," Haslam said when asked about a search for the team's ninth coach since 1999. "Right now, we are focused on the next eight games and Gregg and his staff winning as many of those games that we can."There are already names floating around as potential candidates to be Cleveland's next coach, including Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley, who coached Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield in college."Not right now," Riley said of his interest in jumping to the NFL. "You sit here and answer these questions and I always want to be truthful. The truth is for me is, I love Oklahoma. I love coaching here. I love college football. I certainly don't have that itch right now."Just three weeks ago, the Browns, who went 0-16 last season under Jackson, appeared to have turned the corner following an overtime win against Baltimore.But things unraveled quickly, thrust in the wrong direction by a power struggle between Jackson and Haley, who joined Cleveland's staff this season after six in Pittsburgh. Following a loss at Tampa Bay last week, Jackson aimed blame at Haley by offering to help the team's offense.Haley publicly said he wasn't offended by the remarks. But Jackson's comments seemed to widen a divide between the coaches, who had disagreed on players getting days off during training camp and whether wide receiver Josh Gordon deserved to start the opener.In order to salvage the season, Haslam and general manager John Dorsey felt change was necessary.Without pointing fingers, Dorsey said there's only one way to stop the in-fighting."Treat people the way they want to be treated," he said. "Come into work every day willing to work. Love what you do. Just take ownership in what you are doing. Come to work every day and treat people the way you want to be treated."Jackson's the sixth straight Cleveland coach to be fired following the team's second game against Pittsburgh. Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini Travis Kelce Jersey , Pat Shurmur, Rob Chudzinski and Mike Pettine all met the same demise, but they were let go following the season's final game.Haslam wouldn't get into any specifics about the "'discord" between Jackson and Haley."We made the decision to move on, and it was far bigger than who was going to call plays," Haslam said. "Unfortunately, sometimes, the best plans don't work out, and in this case, they didn't. We were optimistic and hopeful that they would."Jackson was hired in 2016 by the Haslams, who stuck by him despite a 1-15 record in his first season and then last season's debacle. His failures were always explained away with excuses: not enough talent, injuries, bad luck, a disconnection with the front office.Haslam thought hiring a high-profile coordinator like Haley would help Jackson.In the end, it was his undoing."Unfortunately, sometimes the best plans do not work out," Haslam said. "In this case, they did not. We were optimistic and hopeful that they would [url=www.]Tyreek Hill Jersey[/url] , but they did not work out." This was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Seahawks.They’re a playoff team now, by sticking to their convictions, even if they’re not in line with the rest of the league.The Seahawks secured a playoff berth Sunday night with a 38-31 win over the Chiefs, improving to 9-6 on the season.They’ve done it by going back to coach Pete Carroll’s roots, after an offseason spent jettisoning old players and former assistant coaches. They’re still playing a reasonable facsimile of their old defense, but it’s their old-school offense that’s the difference.The Seahawks lead the league in rushing, which is a matter of intent as much as talent. They entered the game with 80 more rushes than pass attempts (457-377), and they kept that pace up against the Chiefs.They ran for 210 yards on 43 attempts (including late knees which took the average below 5.0 per carry), and attempted just 29 passes.Coupled with the kind of late-game magic by quarterback Russell Wilson (three touchdowns, the passing kind) they’ve always enjoyed, it’s an interesting mix. And it definitely goes against the current trends in the league, which suggest you have to fling it all over the place, all the time, to be successful. When everyone is moving in one direction, there’s always room to succeed by going against the grain.Some might call it innovating.Here are five more things we learned during :1. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes probably won’t have to throw another pass in a visiting stadium this season.He’s done quite enough already.Mahomes’ sidearmed third-quarter touchdown pass was his 30th this year. In the road games, we mean.That broke Tom Brady‘s record of 29, set in 2007 for the most in league history.It’s an interesting dynamic that he’d put up better numbers on the road (he has 17 touchdowns and five interceptions in seven home games so far Darwin Thompson Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , heading into next week’s finale), but so much of what he’s doing this year is unprecedented.He pushed it to 31 in the fourth quarter, against just six interceptions in eight road games. They can clinch home field advantage in the AFC by beating the Raiders next week.2. Seahawks running back Chris Carson topped the 1,000-yard barrier in the third quarter, and has become the closest thing they’ve found to a bell-cow back since Marshawn Lynch left town.They’ve worked with committees and used a first-round pick on Rashaad Penny (who was inactive with a knee injury), but the 2017 seventh-rounder has emerged as a guy they can trust.Not every team can pluck a back out of thin air (and their improvements on the offensive line have been significant), but Carson’s style is a perfect fit for the scheme and personality of the Seahawks.3. Chiefs safety Eric Berry may not be quite back. But he’s getting there.He was limited to just a half in his debut last week, as he works his way back from a bone spur issue in his heel (after missing 15 games last year with a torn Achilles).He’s yet to look like the old Eric Berry, and he was on the sidelines late in the fourth quarter, as they continue to monitor his snaps.Their defense has enough problems, and getting him back to anything resembling his old form will be crucial to their playoff chances.It’s an oddball unit, because they have top-shelf talent, such as defensive end Chris Jones (who extended his streak of games with a sack to a record 11) and outside linebacker Dee Ford. They’ve been missing Berry all year, and if he gets his legs underneath him and Kendall Fuller gets back, there’s clearly room for improvement.4. Elder Seahawks kicker Sebastian Janikowski was hurt in the third quarter, on a roughing the kicker penalty.He was able to hit a 28-yard field goal later in the possession, but clearly wasn’t right.That opened the door for Australian punter Michael Dickson to kick off Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys 2019 , and he drop-kicked it inside the 5-yard-line.Dickson has been a difference-maker in terms of field position for the Seahawks this year, and his ability to be effective in other ways (and his drop-kick field goals in pregame warm-ups were amazing), only adds to the layers of novelty.Dickson’s second attempt went out of bounds, giving the Chiefs the ball at the 40, so it wasn’t nearly as cute then.5. Chiefs wide receiverMarcus Kemp had played just 22 snaps of offense this year.But he made one of the most athletic plays you’ll see, proving his value to a good team.The Chiefs were able to pin the Seahawks inside their own 10-yard line on a punt that went into the end zone, thanks to Kemp’s leap. He took off before crossing the goal line, and batted it back into the field of play before he landed. His teammates seemed stunned at first, as they gave away a few yards by letting it role.But the former undrafted rookie from Hawaii, who hung around on their practice squad last year, gave a perfect example of how fringe players can hang on for years. The number of players who can physically make that play are few, but the number who are willing to practice the craft of special teams to the point they know when and how are smaller still.
