So the Browns actually won a game, as you all know by now.
Clearly, Josh Gordon was to blame for all the Browns’ failures over the past few years. Trading him for a 5th round pick to — over the last two decades — the best franchise in the AFC was totally a steal for the Browns.
Sarcasm aside, the win was in part due to the Jets being a miserable franchise…
…and in part, because the Browns finally unleashed Baker Mayfield.
Now, I like this guy. More than anything because he stood up to Colin Cowherd after he tried to denounce Mayfield as a legitimate NFL prospect.
…that could all change very quickly. And it’s not Mayfield’s fault.
I like to think I’ve grown a lot as a person over the past few years and learned a lot about myself. For example, in high school and college, I wasn’t a big fan of LeBron James. I’m still not, but far from what I was. Because I’ve learned my issues were with the fans and media who treated him like he’s above the game.
That can still annoy me enough to where I don’t like or fully appreciate an athlete or even a movie character. (I.E. Iron Man, to an extent. It’s complicated.).
And I’m afraid that’s going to happen with Baker Mayfield in the next two weeks.
See, I actually really appreciate Mayfield’s answer to the question. Perfectly put. But a “competitive beast?” What is that? And what does that make someone like Kobe Bryant or Tom Brady?
It’s Nick Wright. I shouldn’t need to say more than that at this point.
“Beyond Hollywood?” “The most electric debut ever imagined?”
Look, Mayfield deserves credit, but let’s not lose complete sight of the fact that he beat THE JETS. “Beyond Hollywood,” would be like beating the Packers or Patriots or something.
I hope he does well and everything, but man this has already gotten ridiculous.
