Hue Jackson’s day gets worse as DeShaun Watson shines

Published: Monday, October 16, 2017 @ 1:26 PM

Perhaps Sunday’s loss was only the second-worst occurrence for Hue Jackson and the Browns.

News came out that Jackson sent a text message to DeShaun Watson before April’s draft, telling him to “be ready.” The Browns had two chances to pick Watson – they took Myles Garrett No. 1 then traded out of the 12th slot with Houston, which took Watson.

Watson leads the NFL in touchdown passes and looks like a budding superstar. Garrett also seems destined for greatness, but trading out of the 12th pick isn’t looking wise.

Jackson is 1-21 in his career coaching the Browns. The criticism gets stronger every week.

Tennessee is coming off a loss against Missouri on Wednesday and will try to bounce back Saturday.

The Vols travel to South Carolina in an attempt to get back on the right foot. Tennessee has struggled on the road this season and the 12-6 Gamecocks will present a challenge.

The Vols needs better guard play moving forward. Jordan Bone and Jordan Bowden combined for 3 points against Missouri. The Vols won’t win many games without the guards providing more of an offensive spark the remainder of the season.
