To say that things are not going too swimmingly for the winless Cleveland Browns on Thursday would be an understatement.

Earlier in the day, the team fired Executive Vice President Sashi Brown after just a couple seasons in that role.

The decision to fire Brown and retain head coach Hue Jackson for the 2018 season was met with a swift rebuttal from those normally even-keeled people over on Twitter (more on that here).

As it relates to Brown himself, he released a statement through the organization following his firing. And it really is something to behold.

“I want this to be real and clear, the way I know Cleveland and Browns fans can appreciate: Our win-loss record since I became executive vice president isn’t going to cut it,” Brown said, via the team’s official website.

Well, Cleveland is 1-27 since Brown took over control of the team’s front office. Coincidentally enough, that was the same time Jackson took over as head coach.

Jackson remains. Brown is gone. And Brown made sure not to mention the head coach in his statement. It seemed to be pretty deliberate, too.
