After the Browns' 20-7 loss to the Steelers, several players heard about the rumors surrounding head coach Rob Chudzinski for the first time. Here are some tweets regarding what the players said, with the most vocal comments coming from linebacker D'Qwell Jackson.
Joe Thomas took the most emphatic stand. Keep Chud: "Absolutely!" If not? "Hitting the re-set button severely damages the organization."— Steve Doerschuk (@sdoerschukREP) December 29, 2013
"You don't fire your coach after 1 season" - Joe Thomas; added firing Chud would be disappointing— Daryl Ruiter (@RuiterWrongFAN) December 29, 2013
D'Qwell Jackson said that Chud being fired "will not happen." Said he's pissed there's even a report about it. #Browns— Ryan Lewis (@RyanLewisABJ) December 29, 2013
Jordan Cameron told me rumors are rumors (Gordon gone etc) and basically nonsense in his mind— Daryl Ruiter (@RuiterWrongFAN) December 29, 2013
Every player I spoke with emphatically backed Chud; said variety of things & no one constant resulted in 7-game slide to end season #Browns— Daryl Ruiter (@RuiterWrongFAN) December 29, 2013
#Browns HC Chud said he's "definitely" on the same page as CEO Joe Banner and owner Jimmy Haslam.— Nate Ulrich (@NateUlrichABJ) December 29, 2013
