I wonder about the wisdom of that. Egos on camera seem as though they can get extra stupid sometimes.

I like it for Mayfield, though.....maybe. He sounds as if the brighter the spotlight the more determined he is to succeed.

HBO was short on horror and comedy shows apparently.

A report that the Browns tried to trade the #35 pick for Nick Foles-

Should have traded #1. Rather have Foles than Midget Mayfield.

Agree, though the overall #1 was far too steep for Foles...I believe it was wasted on Mayfield, but only time will tell. So by that rationale, I would have traded the #1 for Foles.

Guys - if being two inches shorter was really a make-or-break, you'd both be totally alone in this world.....


Seriously, though, give it a chance.

A fine example of the destructive hack sports media is airing in hourly sports updates on the official Browns radio station.

"In OTAs today, Baker Mayfield is still getting third team reps...."

This is exactly what they told us would happen. These people are fools. Philly did this with Wentz. Did their media hacks at least wait for the pre-season ?

Interesting article about the pi$$ing contest between Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio and the NFL Network's Michael Silver over the purported Foles to Cleveland trade talk. I particularly like where Silver tells Florio "Hey Mike: 1) Don't be a dick". LOL.

For me I don't have a preconceived notion about the QBs ... I want to see it playout .... while I tend to lean toward the cautious side with Mayfield ... he is an older more 'experienced' college QB so I would not 100% rule out him playing early, but only if I was 150% sure he could handle all parts of being an NFL QB ... also IF he was completely ready & someone was willing to give the Browns a Sam Bradford to the Vikings like trade for Taylor ... I would have to at least consider it ... I would prefer that Taylor play the first half the of season ... but that is not set in stone with me. There are some other situations that would also factor into my decision at QB ... how is the running game fairing, how is the defense playing, Drew Stanton ... I would need each of these to be going well before I would play Mayfield.
