Hue Jackson was straight and to the point Sunday when he was asked about the Browns' run game performance against the Giants.
"Not good enough," Jackson said. "There is nothing else to say about it. It was just not good enough, not to our standard. We will get better."
There were reasons, of course, but Jackson wasn't in the mood to lay out some of the backstory behind the team's 33 carries for just 50 yards in Thursday's preseason opener. The scrutiny will be higher Friday when the Browns host the Bills at FirstEnergy Stadium.
"We did not block them good enough," Jackson said. "Just that simple. That is what it was."
