Dede Westbrook has a big goal for his National Football League debut


That's what former Browns safety Tashaun Gipson, who signed with the Jaguars before the '16 season is banking on.

Gipson was a Pro Bowler with the Browns before the team chose not to re-sign him as a free agent after the 2015 season.

"I think that my comments are justifiable about the front office", Gipson said.

"I probably got a bit out of hand with 0-16 team, but I definitely do stand by my comments when I say I feel like Sunday we plan on going 1-0", he said.

"Definitely, anybody would be disrespected with that", said Browns defensive tackle Danny Shelton. PFF previews the top player matchups of the game.

Browns linebacker Christian Kirksey said Gipson is only trying to "rile up" his teammates, but that his words have provided some extra motivation. "The best man wins. 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".

Rookie DeShone Kizer is the Browns' starting quarterback.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said he addressed Gipson's comments with his team and that the safety will not be disciplined. Cleveland is ranked 31st in scoring (15.9 points per game), T-23rd in total offense (313 yards per game), 17th rush (106.9 yards per game) 24th passing (206.8 yards per game) and 31st in turnover ratio (-13). So we have to do everything in our ability to prepare as best as possible to go out there and win it.

"We don't necessarily match up well with Cleveland so we are going to have to play extremely well", he said on a conference call.

Saudi Arabia has since said that aid can go through "liberated ports" but not Houthi-controlled Hodeidah, the conduit for the vast bulk of imports into Yemen.

"That's not something that we like to do as a team".

"Once we can get it him to that point, that's when it's going to step it up even more".

Coach Hue Jackson acknowledged he heard Gipson's comment, but doesn't believe his Browns need the bulletin board motivation.

"You can bet your bottom dollar I did", Jackson said, according to CBS Cleveland.

"We're getting the chunks and we have gotten some big yards, but just churning out those 4- and 5-yard runs on a consistent basis", he said, "finishing blocks and doing those things I think is where we're headed next".

"Blake has been playing very well - very, very well this whole year", Hackett said Thursday as the Jaguars (6-3) prepared to play the Cleveland Browns (0-9) at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio, Sunday at 1 p.m. That is a challenge for our offensive staff and our offensive football team. We want to win.

Rookie tight end David Njoku respected the smack talk and was looking forward to the on-field dialogue.

"I love the smack talk. I really feel this defense can pitch a shutout", he said via ESPN. I just made that up, but if Decker and Wagner dominate I think that could catch on.
