McLain: Biggest surprise is Hue Jackson survives the season

12 January, 2018, 20:02 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • Week 17 Pittsburgh Steelers

The Cleveland Browns' season finished winless becoming just the second team in National Football League history to go 0-16.

Corey Coleman dropped a potential first-down completion on fourth-and-2 in the final 2 minutes against Pittsburgh inside the Steelers' 20-yard line.

Jackson somehow survived the Browns' 0-16 season, but it will leave scars.

ABOUT THE BROWNS (0-15): Cleveland has lost five in a row to Pittsburgh, including a 21-18 setback at home in the season opener, and it's hard to envision that streak ending after the team has been limited to 10 points or fewer in four of the past six games. The Browns' tangible reward for the worst record in the league is the first pick in the draft in April, an "honor" the Browns hold for the second year in a row.

Smith-Schuster hauled in a season-high nine passes for 143 yards and a score. "I think it hurts them to the core about where we are".

"This football team has given me everything we have", Jackson said after the game. "But we're all professionals and I hope everyone learns how to take people's comments with a grain of salt and move on".

"Jimmy's message to me hasn't changed".

Reports said Jim Caldwell of the Detroit Lions, John Fox of the Chicago Bears, Bruce Arians of the Arizona Cardinals and Marv Lewis of the Cincinnati Bengals are goners - although in Arians' case it might be his own decision to leave.

Some things to look for as Pittsburgh tries for its sixth straight win in a one-sided series while the Browns try to avoid some unwanted history. As they cleaned out their lockers a day after the 28-24 season-ending loss to the Steelers, resentment lingered from season-long criticism of the roster by Jackson and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. They're an easy target, a punchline, the team to pile on. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our fans for sticking with us and being in this with us all of the way. Worn down by years of losing, one group has planned a parade around the team's downtown stadium on Saturday to "celebrate" the imperfect season.

In addition to Pouncey, the Steelers chose to hold quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, running back Le'Veon Bell, guard David DeCastro and defensive end Cameron Heyward out of Sunday's regular season finale.

The intangible reward is the "Perfect Season Parade", to be hosted by fan Chris McNeil, which will take place January 6 at noon.

Johnson's touchdown cut the Steelers' lead to 14-7 with 11:46 left in the half.

Fourth down. Trailing by four.

On the second touchdown, wide receiver Rishard Higgins beat linebacker TJ Watt on a quick slant, and after catching a short pass over the middle from quarterback DeShone Kizer, he broke the tackles of safeties Sean Davis and Mike Mitchell and ended up in the end zone for a 56-yards later. His 96-yard kickoff return for a TD Sunday, where he ran through a handful of would-be tacklers and then outran the rest, was his eighth TD of the year, his second of 96+ yards and Pittsburgh's first kickoff return TD in seven years. He says it isn't to make fun of the Browns.

The Pittsburgh Steelers feel fortunate to have JuJu Smith-Schuster in their life.

Peppers showed what a weapon he can be in this game, though, picking off Landry Jones and showing nice chops as a kick returner as well.
