The caveat: Osweiler did not get a single rep with the first team until Jackson named him the starter for the first preseason game. "He's established a work ethic that has earned the respect of his teammates", Jackson said in a conference call Sunday.
"It's great, " said Jackson.
"I thought he did some good things", Jackson said. "That's why I feel good about the things that he accomplished tonight".
Sifting through Jackson's words for clues about what he is thinking is futile.
Kizer will be the 27th Browns quarterback to start since 1999.
"Obviously, (Kizer) is a young man who is very talented", Jackson said. I know the numbers weren't like I would like or he would like, but I thought he moved the team and made some plays. We get it! ESPN!

He's led three touchdown drives and a field goal drive in 3ﾽ quarters, including a 45-yard winning touchdown pass in the opener against the Saints.
Kizer was sacked on the next play, ran on the one following and was sacked on the third - but was bailed out by one of those odd illegal contact penalties downfield. He also has rushed eight times for 47 yards and one score. For anyone who hasn't heard yet, Brock Osweiler is not starting the third game/dress rehearsal, it will be the rookie, DeShone Kizer. The first two ended in turnovers, including Kizer's late throw over the middle that was picked off, and the third was a three-and-out.
Quarterback Kevin Hogan completed a five-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jordan Leslie with 1:53 to play in the fourth quarter and gave the Cleveland Browns a 13-9 lead over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in preseason action at Raymond James Stadium.
"You just never know how things will turn out", Jackson said.
The Browns, 1-15 a year ago, plan to let the defense carry the load this season.
