Dorsey: No Commitment to Jackson

Heard an interview with John Dorsey this morning on WKNR.    He seems like a straightforward dude.

Though...the one question he did NOT give a straightforward answer to was:  Are you committed to having Hue Jackson here as the HC in 2018.  He said something along the lines of "we are only currently thinking about the present, the here and now.   We need to get better players in to make plays".    In other words, he was totally NON-committal to seeing Hue back here.

Of course, in theory, based on what Haslam has said, it is not really Dorsey's call on who is the HC of the team because Hue does not report to Dorsey..he reports to Jimmy.  So, maybe Dorsey just didn't want to talk out of school.  Nevertheless, he deferred completely on the subject of Hue being here next year.

I personally think he handled that smartly. Get some better players at certain positions, maybe get an OC...

and only then can we see if Hue is up to the task of winning or not. Compensating for the lack of talent has to give

coaches serious fits and decisions that are tough to explain to the media.

Why would he accept the job if the owner won't let him fire the incompetent coach? Where's your pride man?

Because in today's NFL, a lot of time the GM is NOT the "boss" of the HC.   On several teams it is the other way around..or, as here, both GM and HC are on equal footing.

Bill Belichick is the boss in NE.  

It seems that Andy Reid is the boss in KC

This article is like 4 years old, but it shows that NFL team Heirarchies are all different:

Good, he's holding people accountable for their actions. That's something every boss should do.

If the kicker sucks and can never make a kick, you fire him. You don't kick for the future and lose games. That's why that asian dude on the chargers was cut after a week. Because as herm edwards says, "you play to win". I feel like under Dorsey, we're actually going to try to win.

I've seen speculation that the current Kansas City OC Matt Nagy would be Dorsey's choice to be the Browns HC if the need would arise.

That's very interesting as he has been OC at KC 2016 & 2017 and KC QB coach since 2013, which mirrors Alex Smith's years with KC & also Dorsey's years there as GM.

Once again, my unqualified gut opinion is that Hue Jackson will no longer be the Browns' HC after the 2018 Bye week & possibly much sooner than that....Canton Mike

To quote Arte Johnson from Laugh In fame........"Velly interesting!"

WT F kind of an organization has the HC reporting to the owner and not the GM? Is Hue giving Haslam blowjobs?

You  reveal that you clearly know shite about NFL team organizations with that comment.  Possibly as many as half of the NFL teams have a heirarchy where the HC is either superior to or equal to the GM.....including the Pats and BB.  BB is the "boss" of that team's GM.
