Browns' Hue Jackson says he'll keep promise to jump in Lake Erie

Browns' Hue Jackson says he'll keep promise to jump in Lake Erie

Jackson said Wednesday he'll make good on his promise to jump in Lake Erie because of his team's frightful record.

That vow was that if his team went 1-15 again, that people would find him "swimming in (Lake Erie)".

Via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Jackson opened his press conference Wednesday in a good mood.

Nacho Monreal Could Make Arsenal Return Against Crystal Palace
Palace's form has greatly improved under manager Roy Hodgson in what promises to be a tough match for the Gunners. Zaha's last big move from Palace did not work out as planned.


"That is what keeps me going is the support from management, the support from my team, the support from the staff and the people who truly believe". I do get when you are a coach of a team that hasn't won and things don't go well - trust me, I have made my mistakes, too.

"I got to", he said.

Jackson takes a 1-30 record into Sunday's season finale in Pittsburgh and the Browns are likely to become only the second team in National Football League history besides the 2008 Lions to go 0-16. "I can't go by what everybody else thinks or what everybody else wants".

Post-holiday gift return onslaught begins
Many items, including music, movies, software and video games, are not eligible for return if their packages are opened. Do not assume that you have the right to return or exchange an unwanted present for equal/lesser value or even at all.


Thomas remains supportive of coach Hue Jackson, who takes a 1-30 record with Cleveland into the season finale at Pittsburgh. Obviously I've got to get wet.

"As I told the team, we had to go through something", Jackson said.

Jackson hasn't sent a date for his splashdown, and said he would make it at his "convenience" - code for in warmer weather. The forecast today in Cleveland calls for snow showers and a high of 18 degrees. Until I can change, until we can change and show change, nobody is going to believe anything we say. It will be something we make special. It is on us just to execute the things that he puts out in front of us.

Critically ill evacuated from besieged area in Syria
The families of the children have also accompanied them to hospitals inside Damascus, Sidki said. The evacuation of patients were the result of "long negotiations", the Syrian Red Crescent said.


Jackson said he would make the lake jump a charitable event, with all proceeds going to the Hue Jackson Foundation, an organization fighting human trafficking in Cleveland. "This is probably one of my strengths - something I learned a long time ago of being able to lead men".
