"Is it discouraging? To a certain point but we're going to get this done".
Jimmy Haslam cited "great leadership" and "magic" as a coordinator as reasons to keep Jackson.
Haslam said when he met with Dorsey about the general manager's job (Dorsey was hired the same day Brown was sacked as executive vice president of football operations), he told Dorsey that Jackson would be the head coach.
With the 2017 season done and a new general manager installed you would expect to see the house swept clean and the search for a new head coach to begin, but no... A lot of coaches would have said "uncle" after a year ago. "I ain't old enough to think about retiring!" "I don't think a lot of people could've done this job so I understand where our fans are and hope in time that will change". Four months later, the Steelers (12-3) enter Sunday's season finale with their third AFC North title in four years and a first-round bye already locked up and have a fleeting shot at earning home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs if the New York Jets can somehow upset New England on the road.
Joe Arpaio: I want to Support our President and his Agenda
A protester dressed up as former Sheriff Joe Arpaio in KKK robes at an August President Donald Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona. We're going to see this play out here over the next few days, next few weeks, next few months. "I know he doesn't like me.
Cleveland has the first and fourth picks in the 2018 draft, and it's the future and not the present that Jackson would prefer to focus on.
"I get it", Jackson said. "The two years of this has been tough". We didn't meet our goals and I'm sorry that we didn't. When Landy Jones threw a first quarter pick into quadruple coverage and everyone was tweeting "I can't imagine what Jones thought he saw", Archuleta quickly displayed what Jones thought he saw: He thought he saw man, but it was really man underneath zone. "A awful thing to be a part of".
"I feel for the fans", he said.
There were signs of progress, as there has been all season. Watt to catch a quick slant from DeShone Kizer, and then he completed the 56-yard touchdown play by splitting safeties Sean Davis and Mike Mitchell.
England line up Nigeria, Costa Rica for World Cup warm-ups
The Three Lions are drawn against Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in the first round of Russian Federation 2018. It is the fifth time Nigeria will be pitched against Argentina in the group stage of the World Cup.
Kizer struggled at times, but connected on a pair of big plays to help the Browns rally. Twice in the first half they drew third-down defensive penalties that extended Pittsburgh drives.
The first two ended with turnovers, giving Cleveland an NFL-high 41 on the season. Kizer had escaped pressure from the Steelers pass rush on fourth-and-2 before throwing to a wide-open Coleman up the sideline. That's not going to happen. Sunday's game gives some backups the opportunity for some valuable playing time and they are going to take advantage of it. Jackson plans to be along for the ride.
"I think we have the best fans in the National Football League, and when we win Hue Jackson will be their hero". I think what it has done is the urgency within the building, within our team, within everybody to get it fixed because if you don't, this is what things lead to. I do get that all of our fans, they truly want results.
Pittsburgh - which is the No. 2 seed in the AFC and will host a game in the divisional round January 14 - never trailed while beating its closest rival for a seventh straight time. Pittsburgh rookie WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, at age 21 years and one month, became the youngest NFLer ever to gain 1,000 all-purpose yards in a season. The former USC Trojan also had a career-best 122 yards on two kickoff returns, including a key 96-yard touchdown scamper that put the Steelers up 28-21.
Saints-Panthers rivalry becomes a trilogy in the playoffs
However, the Panthers suffered two losses against the Saints this season, so New Orleans decisively took the tie breaker. For the Panthers-who are seven-point underdogs-to pull off the upset, they'll need to have success in the running game.
