NFL Week 11 Preview: Jaguars at Browns

NFL Week 11 Preview: Jaguars at Browns

Gipson said he wasn't being disrespectful, but his words were topic in Cleveland locker room all week. Respect for his former teammates, though, is low.

Coach Hue Jackson acknowledged he heard Gipson's comment, but doesn't believe his Browns need the bulletin board motivation. "It has been addressed, and we understand that it is going to be very hard for us to go on the road and win a football game".

Starting wide receivers Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee both were expected to miss practice Wednesday, as were starting right tackle Jermey Parnell and starting left guard Patrick Omameh. Some guys do, some guys don't use it. "I take ownership in saying the things I said that may have been pointed towards them, but make no mistake about it; I never disrespected anybody on the Browns team".

Gipson's remarks on ESPN radio were strong enough that Jaguars coach Doug Marrone felt a need to address it in a team meeting on November 15.

"You can bet your bottom dollar I did", Jackson said. Unless you have Tom Brady, I think we can pitch a shutout against any team in the NFL. I think that's what helped bring along success in the past is that you don't look down upon anybody and you don't underestimate anybody.

It has to sting a little more, though, especially for the players that were here before the teardown started, when one of the players who most represents the start of that teardown speaks out so strongly against his former team.




"Once you get to a certain level in the league and you're dealing with a team that's winless, you don't want to be the team that loses to that team", Gipson said. "But I definitely do stand by my comments when I say I feel like Sunday we plan on going 1-0". 'I'm man enough to say the 0-16 comment probably was a bit too far, but at the end of the day, I do expect a Jaguars victory on Sunday. Kirksey and Gipson are close friends. "I don't know what type of guy he is, but I look forward to going out there and executing my job to try to prove him wrong with those comments". Jags safety Tashaun Gipson, who played four seasons for Browns, spiced up game with harsh comments about Cleveland's front office, predicting Jacksonville shutout and that Browns will go 0-16. "It's going to be the best defense to win. But I'm here and I have a job to do and it's to go out here and win ballgames and lead this team the best way I can lead it".

"I'm hoping that it might be chippy", he said.

"I'm going to say what I'm going to say to get my team riled up. We're trying to win our games".

"Their defense is solid, our defense is solid and it's going to be the best defense will win in my opinion".

"I'm not the type of person to go out and say what we're going to do". I just love it.
