Fresh update on "baker mayfield" discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"The air, I mean it comes of the worldwide leader in sports is going to be joining us in studio this hour so much to talk about in the National Football League going into week baker's dozen. You'll never believe the top story on the twitterverse right now involving the National Football League. To kick off hour number two, let's do it. Let's do it. Because it has been pile on Russ season in 2022. It has been. When Russell Wilson, arrived in Denver, you know, my AFC west takes have been a little aw this year. Admittedly the Las Vegas Raiders, nowhere near the top of the standings. Although they're playing very, very, very well right now. Playing very, very well right now. They are. Yeah. In the last second of the game. They've won two in a row. So admittedly, I must say that. On the flip side, when everyone's going crazy about the Broncos just add Russ. The JAR, just at Ross, I was pumping the brakes on that. I said, I need to see it to believe it. I mean, to see it to believe it, and then came the schedule comes out and zero chill from the NFL. Schedulers. Zero chill by throwing him in Seattle in week one. And I thought, man, put Russ in Los Angeles. I thought that was gonna be the kick-off game for the rams, you raised the batter, you get the rings, and you bring Russ in in his first game as a Denver Bronco on national television, yes, but against the rams, a team that he faced two years, two times a year for all those years. And I think the league might have wished to have reversed it right now because that rams Broncos game sitting there on Christmas Day in the middle of the day is the proverbial lump of NFL scheduling coal right now. Brutal. Because that week one game in which Denver went to Seattle and by the way, that might have been Russ's best game of the year under the circumstances and the way the offense was moving and in the red zone and both running backs who aren't even active right now, one not active, one not even on the team anymore. Fumble inside the 5? And that was when we were first introduced to Nathaniel Hackett's coaching, readiness, acumen, however you want to put it when he decided to play for a game winning 90 million yard field goal. Instead of letting Russ cook in his first opportunity back in Seattle first opportunities at Denver Bronco and then one after another after another, hit would come on the field of one game where after another in which the offense was stagnant or even worse looking incompetent is the only word that you could use. Really? What blank? You're not wrong. That first game he had 340 yards in a touchdown and a one O one passer rating. And I thought like, okay, if not for those fumbles, at least we're seeing the offense is going to be good. I mean, he didn't fumble on the goal line. And then it went off a cliff. And prior to that seeing raw and the videos that came out of him, that the Broncos, I guess, put together of him in front of a green screen and saying Broncos country, let's ride, and then him constantly using those phrases. At the podium after games in which the team lost and the offense looked completely anemic, him standing in the middle of the field with his eyes closed. Twirling around. Twirling around. And it has been pile on rossier. It really has been. And the record and the record. Is absolutely worthy of criticizing any quarterback. It doesn't matter who it is. It doesn't matter who it is. Three and 8, when you sign for as much money as Russ has signed for. Denver. And then you saw in going to three and 8 losing to Carolina on their interim head coach and their third different starting quarterback of the year, Baker Mayfield, then PJ walker, and then baker again, and now Sam darnold's ready. Matt rule, we spoke to yesterday. He's now the head coach of Nebraska cornhusker football. I mean, talk about a total dumpster fire of a season. They lose to that team. And Mike Purcell the defensive tackle on the team is just comes off the field and barks at Russ. And in this day and age, you've got to be careful about that sort of business. Dez Bryant is the perfect example. Dez would be going up and down the sideline and yelling and screaming. How disruptive is he? And then the actual. The actual sound. Right. The actual transcript of what he's saying is all trying to get his team going. So you've got to be careful about that sort of stuff. But even Chris long came on this program and he is a guy who doesn't traffic in the hot taken and he's a two time defending Super Bowl champ, he's just like, of course it will use angry. He's like, we're talking about how Russ isn't the same Russ and how the contract may be suddenly one of the worst deals in the history of the league. That's when we talk about the disease contract is the worst contract maybe in the history of the league you're seeing right now. So of course they're angry with Ross and maybe not buying in on it. Why am I bringing this all up right now? Yeah, Richmond. Mike klis, who covers the Denver sports scene for a very long time. He tweets out about 15 minutes ago, there's been some gossip about Russell Wilson standing in the locker room. Here's some context per source Wilson's wife Ciara threw him a birthday party last night and quote it looked like about half the team was there on a player's day off. Why do people have to be so hurtful? It puts out there.

Browns Beat Panthers to Open the Season
"My goodness, the Cleveland Browns have a kicker. Finally, 21 year old cade York, hitting from 58 yards out with 8 seconds to go to beat baker, Mayfield and the Carolina Panthers by one point. It was the best of times it was the worst of time. I'm one of those people that wanted cake that wanted banker to stay in Cleveland because I liked the way the young man plays with passion and fire. And he played with passion, fire. So he had a great game, but the browns had just a little bit more. And so the browns were have won their first game, their first home opener, excuse me, their first opener of the season since 2004. That one was at home. It's their first away opening win since 1994. So the browns haven't been wanting us since 2004, and they haven't been wanting to know beginning away since 1994. It was a long time. There's a lot of news this weekend, but can I just share that one more time, please? This is Jim Donovan in the booth. York to try to win the game, the kick. Look at this distance and kade York wins in Cleveland.

"On Hulu back here at NFL live. Let's go around the league with our top stories and chef tee, take it away from New Orleans first. Well, feel Jameis Winston back at practice in 7 on 7 drills. You remember he hurt his right foot during practice two weeks ago, but now it's the season coming closer with the foot feeling better with the knee making progress. Jameis is back at practice and that's a good sign for the New Orleans Saints who lead him to blend together with their new offensive teammates. Meanwhile, the Giants first round draft at cave on pivotal, sprained his MCL on this plate, he is expected to miss three to four weeks in the Giants regular season opener is in 20 days, which makes it dicey whether he'll be able to play Brian dabel said he's day to day, but it certainly sounds like he's no lock to play in week one against the Tennessee Titans and Tom Brady as returned from his ten 11 day hiatus to resume practicing with the Buccaneers, took some time to attend to quote unquote personal things. But let's just point out the unique nature of this. I don't think there's ever been a player, certainly if his stature that has ever taken ten 11 days off this close to the regular season so clearly it was time he felt he needed to get done. Yeah, unique situation that much is for sure. It's good to see him back on the field, but here's his head coach Todd Bowles earlier today on Brady in the offensive line. Anytime you have all your guys back, you feel good, you know? Especially after the injury bug has hit lately. So we're happy to have him back. It goes from day to day, you know, it goes from day to day, whether you're playing or not playing, we'll make those decisions at the end of the week, you know, I've seen people play and be used to it, I've seen people not play and be rusty and be used to it, you know? So we'll discuss it at the end of the week and see how much work we get done in practice this week. We like our in-house options, but there's got to be a player available for us to like to have an added player. We're not just going to sign one of the signed ones. So there's nothing out there for us to sign, but at the same time we're comfortable with the guys we have right now. All right, so Mina Todd bol says that he is comfortable with the offensive line despite some recent nutrition. How concerned are you right now about the state of affairs amongst the offensive line that over the past two seasons has been arguably as good as there is past past protecting in the NFL? I am not comfortable with it. I am deeply uncooked. This is the one position that the books really could not afford injuries had. Maybe the other being inside linebacker behind Levante David, but boy, just not just to lose one player, but to lose a string of offensive linemen the way they had obviously the trade for Shaq mason worked out to bolster the interior of the offensive line, but then to lose Ryan Jensen, their center, they're gonna replace him in houses, Ryan hainsey, and then now, again, to have another injury of this magnitude with Aaron siney out. I know they have Luke edik. They drafted, but the problem field is it's not like you're just replacing one player on the offensive line and obviously the tackles are still set with Tristan worst and Donovan Smith, but when you start replacing multiple players is when you run into problems and we all know this is not a surprise to anyone that interior pressure has long been the biggest way to stop Tom Brady. So again, to lose players exactly in that spot. It's the kind of thing that while it won't stop the bucks from getting to the playoffs, could prevent them from getting that number one seed, which we know is all too important in the extended postseason. Yeah, listen, I like to downplay this is crazy to me, okay? You talking about the interior offensive line. Every defensive meeting I said in before we play Tom Brady, the word was, if we can get interior pressure, we can make Tom Brady normal. That was the word. That was the game playing playing against him. And now, entertainment parts, you lose a lot of experience. You lose guys that play in the Super Bowl and one one. Not to mention Jensen and the report that you be, but look at this list. Ally Moore pick going cap on starters in the Super Bowl. Ran Jensen started in the stupid Super Bowl. Interestingly, now out. Rob Gronkowski, we don't talk about enough as a premier blocker at the Titans, but who they use on their outsides on play is our. Like, listen, this is for everybody to, yeah, and not to mention Todd Bowles being there as a new head coach. Tabo probably like, man, come home, man. We talking about Aaron Rodgers coming back. Like, oh, you throw me in this file the first year without half of my offensive line. And think about this, y'all. We sat here two years ago or three years, one of them. My time running together. Relatives. And we talked about the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line, being deficient against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and that was the sole reason the big, the big reason why I had the tempeh Buccaneers want a Super Bowl. And now there's this calm about losing the entire interior of an offensive line. With Tom Brady who's 45 playing quarterback. I ain't that calm about it. I don't know how anyone else can be, especially when we come off a playoff game. What we see Aaron Donald make the game change and take place to win the football game. And now you're going to implement new offensive lineman. I'm a little bit paused at this and I'm sure Tom Brady is saying, bro, might have should have stayed stayed at the crib. And when swagger put up that list of all the players who will not be back, including Rob Gronkowski and Alex Kappa and Ryan Jensen, what I was thinking is they struggled to keep pace with New Orleans with that cast. Correct. And now the cast is downgraded and New Orleans believes that this division is well within its grasp and that there's no reason that they can't win the division. That's the reason they traded their first in the draft in 2023 to get an extra one in 2022 because they felt like Tampa was vulnerable and that was before some of these injuries and some of these other moves. So New Orleans feels like it's in a great position and Tampa seems vulnerable at the spot where they can not be where they need to protect Brady, whereas Mina mentioned his kryptonite is up the middle. Yeah, in many quarterbacks have a similar kryptonite and Brady and the bucks and really Brady and the Patriots over the many, many years he's been playing the NFL have been able to withstand departures here or there. It just feels like there's been a larger aggregate impact on the bucks. This off season as compared to previous years for Brady and his team. And all this talk about offensive line play has us thinking about Tom Brady and then maybe the potential need for him to have to scramble a bit more this off season and a runner swag goes. So let's go ahead and roll the tape of Tom Brady's top 5 runs of all time. You may have heard back in 2002, Tom Brady against the Oakland Raiders. Look at Brady. Break the pocket. Gets the first stand up. And he's like, he was down. A lot Brady get up here though. Only Tom Brady has magnificent runs that go for it. Give me that. And number four, Brady has always been the ultimate competitor especially in the game of this close. He is a great quarterback sneaker near the goal line to speak. How many times have you gone up over the top four 6 points? You see it right. It's the dual threat. He'll do a threat. He is a beautiful original. Just need different kind of explain that to me. He's the timing? Yeah, if I think it is. And decisive dish. Number three to 7 14, 2014. Luca Brady, he's like, I got shame free. Oh wait, Kevin, I know I don't. I don't agree. Let's go. He's just a fast run Mac. What am I? Yeah. Quarterback. Break down the three yard line for the first down. Get down. He started feeling himself. That looked like Dan. Yeah. That looked like Dan. Tom Brady, but to get his high step on October 13th and 2013 and watch this one. Breaks the pressure. Oh. Get those feet up in the air, Tom. Get those legs up. Let's go. This is actually a really good run. I know we're kidding around. That's a good run. That's a good run. Number one. Brian Larkin are in the retirement, watch this. Okay, you're like our Hall of Fame linebacker known for his speed and random.

"baker mayfield" Discussed on The MMQB NFL Podcast
"I remember there was an SI article in like 2001. He was kind of like the precursor to javon curse for those of you who remember John curse of the Titans. He was like the speedy, you know, kind of basketball type of build at pressure. All right, nice. This next one will be, I think, easy should be easy. Just one of my favorite players of all time. So, and also I gave him a nickname, I guess, or my friends and I gave him a nickname that I always assumed was his nickname, and I just came to find that it is not at all his nickname. So. Detroit Lions player out of the University of Virginia. 6 three born on October 20th, 1969, and in 1994 had 1100 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. Is that Herman Moore? It is urban more. Wow. Look at this one. It's cool too. It's got its Herman Moore and it's a white background, but then it's got three for some reason next to Herman Moore three identical pictures of Herman Morse face. It's very, I don't know. It's very Warhol right there. It is. It's a little war Holly. This is a sky back SkyBox impact series. And yeah, I always thought my friend, my friend Dave used to call him Herman the truth more. And I just assumed that he got that from somewhere and so for years, I love turman more because I was like, yeah, it's Herman the truth more. Turns out there is no evidence anywhere. Not on this card, not on pro football reference. We have detailed before, has really liberal nickname policies. It doesn't go anywhere there. So interesting, but a good one. Now it's gonna get a little bit harder. I'm gonna challenge you a little bit. This one is a gold leaf rookie series card. Buccaneers player. 1997. This player was born on October, another player born on October 20th, 1976. All right. Not only a great deep threat. This is what the back of the card reads. This player has the ability to make yards after the catch. His 26 career touchdown catches is third best in his school's history. His 18 in 1996 is the school's best ever for a single season. He led the SEC in 1996 with 107.7 receiving yards per game. So I feel like the bucks had a bunch of Florida guys. Who would come through? Is he a Florida guy? Yes. Okay. Oh, see that doesn't narrow it down at all. A buck's rookie from Florida in the mid 90s. Oh boy. Give me, give me his size. Give me his height. Does it have that? Yeah. 5 11. Oh, that doesn't help at all. Florida guy 5 11 bucks mid 90s. Do you want some personal facts about him? It gives me some personal facts. So he went on to become a high school football coach and for a while, like us, a blogger at Gators nation, or gator country. As the blogs offensive analyst, finished his NFL career with a 144 receptions for 1846 yards, 16 touchdowns, played all 5 seasons with Tampa Bay. Seemed to kind of max out in 1998, 708 yards, 7 touchdowns, 35 first downs. Oh, that's a pretty good, pretty good year. I was gonna say solid solid year. Yeah. I'm stumped. Give me initials. And if I don't get it right off initials, I'm gonna give up. RA. This is hard. This is not a known guy, but it was just, it was a name that popped out to me. I think I played with him a lot on NFL quarterback club 99 because I thought it was really good, you know? I'm gonna be kicking myself. Who is it? Rydell Anthony. Oh, man. Cool card too. Wait, is he giving the, is that a peace sign he's flashing? Sort of a modified Heisman pose. No, his hands are just sort of like down like this. Like almost like a cat scratching for the listener. He's kind of doing a cat scratch thing. Just like a very random baggy bucks sweatsuit, which is very funny. Yeah, and like very generic white Reebok sneakers. But just a really cool card, rydell Anthony, was a good one. This one, I love because my cousin for some reason has like 31 cards of this player and I don't know why. I don't know if he really loved this guy or what the story is. We'll have to ask him. Born on December 19th, 1969, 6 5, 270 pound pass rusher out of Baylor at this point in 1994, he had 18 sacks over three years, ten during a breakout rookie season. And the back of his card reads a superb pass rusher already stands 7th all time on the Buccaneers sack list after only three seasons, which is very sad. He plays both defensive end and defensive tackle. He played most of the year recovering from a broken hand, but is still tied for second on the team in sacks. At this point in 1994, when the card was made, his father was also a former professional football player. In defense of Lyman. It's not simian rice and it's not Warren sapp, and I can't remember anyone else on that buck's defensive line. Oh man. Baylor guy? What year was this? His card here. So he was like a 91 draft pick? 1992, he played just as long with the packers, finished his career with the now commanders, he was a Super Bowl champion, and pro football writers of America all rookie selection. Champion with that bucks team. Packers teach. With the packers when they beat the Patriots. Oh boy, the droop led Zoe patriots. Here's a hint that should clinch it for you. First name shares his first name is the last name of a very famous rock and roll guitarist. Freely. I don't know. Santana datsun. Oh man. This is shameful. I actually, I don't even remember him for the packers. Yeah, had a nice little second. Had a nice little second wind. All right. I gotta finish with getting one. My confidence level was sky high three minutes ago, and now it's down in the gutter. Okay, so should I not do like this one was gonna be a gag. And okay, to that one. Do that one minute. Well, just because I feel like there's no way anyone could get this that I was just gonna drag you along with it forever. So I'll just do this one quick. Okay, and then I'll do one. 1986 Super Bowl champion with the Chicago Bears.

"The chiefs in the Super Bowl was, well, that Jimmy G makes that throw, the forty-niners win. And I think the packers are going, we got the run game. We got the defense. And we have the quarterback that we'll make that throw in that moment for us to win the Super Bowl because we consider and say the 2011 arch, and we consider and say, 2014, I played against those teams. Those receivers were dudes. Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Michael Finley at tight end. That team was loaded skill position wise. This team is not certainly on the perimeter. And I think that's where it's hard for me to sit here and say while I think of the formula or the identity to how to get it done, I think of this team's got to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneer secondary at some point. A point to this team's got to play Jalen Ramsey and that secondary at some point. This team might have to play Trayvon Diggs in that Dallas cowboy corner at some point. You got to have a guy and they just don't have it. And that's why I struggle sit here and go, yeah, I'm back in Green Bay is like, this is the final year to get it done Super Bowl wise with Aaron on the back end of his career. No, we talked about that. Those wide receivers. There's Ted of them on the roster. For our rookies, and so Adam, do you think they could potentially add a free agent whiteout like Odell Beckham junior or Julio Jones to have a veteran presence there? Well, Shay, I think they'll be looking and they've been looking if you go back to the day that they traded Devante Adams. The packers were on the phone that afternoon trying to see if they could acquire a veteran wide receiver from some other team. And so they went out and signed Sammy Watkins, but I don't know if that solves everything. There are some wide receivers out there. It would make sense for this team to add one. I'm sure there are players and coaches in that building that want to see another wide receiver on that roster before the regular season begins. Well, time's ticking. That's for sure.

"To compliment those drinks? Sam, what do you think? The answer is it doesn't matter. He has to make it work. That's just the fact of the matter, right? So Christian McCaffrey in 2017 to 2019, 5400 yards from scrimmage. That led the NFL 39 touchdowns in that three years plant span. So he's averaging almost 2000 yards and 13 touchdowns. So that's enough. DJ Moore, the last three years, over a thousand yards receiving. That's enough. Robbie Anderson in ascending receiver, that's enough and oh, by the way, you have a defense that was second, even with how bad the offense was. You have a defense that was second in yards allowed. All of that is enough, not even to mention the offensive line, those three pieces that are lost in you just mentioned icky aqua nu. Austin Corbett, Bradley Boseman, all great additions to an offensive line that was 29th in past pro last year in 28th overall in the last two seasons under this head coach. And so for me, it doesn't matter if those pieces are good enough or whatever. It's enough and it has to be enough for Baker Mayfield. Yeah, yeah, I agree, man. Listen, I'm a baker guy. I've had baker's back a long time, and I think you said it the right way. You got to make it work. Everyone's going to say, well, how did the Panthers make this work? It's not all on them. Baker's got to go in and understand dude. You're the number one pick bud. And this is going to be your fourth coach in 5 years. Hugh Jackson wasn't good enough, whether you agree with it or not, then Freddie kitchens. I agree with that. Was it good enough? And then they bring in Kevin Stefanski. Now it doesn't work. Now you're going to another team in another coach staff. And I love baker. Dude, you got to make it work. I'm not pretending that the Carolina panther skill group is like the St. Louis rams with Kurt Warner. But this is a good enough group. There's a reason why that this team last year with 6 weeks left in the season went and got Kim Newton gave him a bunch of money. Because they truly believe that with good quarterback play, they're a playoff team. I truly believe, with good quarterback play, they're a playoff team. And if this offensive line takes a step forward and McCaffrey is healthy and that defense updates with JC horn coming back as a top ten, 12 unit, if Baker Mayfield can't play good enough football and lead this team to at least playing meaningful games into December with the playoffs on the line, then we're not talking about is your quarterback or starting quarterback in the league anymore. We're talking about how did this happen? But if he's able to do that and play the way that I've seen him play the way that I believe will play because here's the reality. If he plays good this season and takes this team into meaningful games and into the playoffs, in two of the last three years, in his last two seasons, when he's healthy, he's gone to the playoffs. Look at bob. And then people are going, wow, wow, wow, wow, maybe Cleveland had it wrong about Baker Mayfield and maybe it wasn't just baker. But dude, you gotta make it work. You gotta figure out a way that if and when you get on the field, you step on and you play a high level of football consistently, whatever this team needs at that spot, you gotta get it done because the roster is there. I don't think this roster is nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Good quarterback play. It's a play. Back. Yeah. And obviously a healthy Christmas. And with that Dan. And I would even go ahead, Sam. Yeah, no, I definitely, I would add to that. Just to the point, bringing in bringing in canned late in the season. The Panthers lost their last 7 games last season. That's pretty much all of November and December, even in January. That's when it matters. And yes, Baker Mayfield is great at game winning drives. And winning drive. Facts haven't been and Baker Mayfield has been and so bring that kind of energy baker when it comes to these close games right in games that are decided by one score by one score one score lesson. That's when we need you. And I think that's what baker will actually provide. I think people will be pleasantly surprised to the point I think they care a lot of Panthers. There's can mix with baker makes a little quarterback. Their defense is hands down good enough. Their offensive line, which was their big time weak point, has been addressed by address alignment 6 in the draft who people have said was the best offensive lineman in the draft icky aquanaut and then going to get Bradley Boseman, not just postman, not just to play he did early on and with the Baltimore Ravens. Now he's playing his natural position, which he played in college, centered, and he played his last year in ball street in Baltimore's positive. And then you also have offensive lineman Austin Corbett who just won a Super Bowl, right? Like, so we are addressing our weaknesses, even when it comes to penalties. This team was one of the most penalized teams last year offensive and wise and these other guys who they drafted or who they got foreign free agency, they're some of the least penalized online. And so for me, all the pieces are in place for baker to be successful. And I think baker will be successful and I think that's what it's going to take baker being successful in clutch moments. IE fourth quarter IE, November and December football for this team to go and make a playoff run. Yeah, he's going to have to be good in pressure situations. There's also pressure on this head coach. Matt rule, because this is a big year for him as well. It's not only managed these quarterbacks, but manage his entire football team. We've got some really good news here on NFL live. The Raiders.

The saints will look very different this season. That topic is front and center in the latest edition of off season questions with our own Adam scepter. What is the state of the saints? There's a new look in new worlds. Where Sean Payton has stepped away from coaching and Dennis Allen has stepped into the role that he once held through raiders. I'm going to be me and I'm going to put my own little spin on it. I want to create my own legacy here with the New Orleans Saints. What he inherits is a team that's trying to bounce back physically and mentally with reinforcements all around. Jameis Winston's aiming to get full medical clearance later this month for training camp next month despite being spotted at OTAs with a limp. Michael Thomas still is recovering from the ankle injury that cut shortest 2020 season prevented him from playing the 2021 season with the hopes of being ready for this season. But New Orleans also added reinforcements, trading up to draft wide receiver Chris olave. Touchdown number two for number two. And bringing in two former LSU standouts, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and safety tyron Matthew, back home. You're being from Louisiana. You always want to play for your hometown team. I think this is a place I've always wanted to be. All to help Winston try to prevent his former team from winning another NFC south title. I want to beat him. I'm going to beat him back and in my heart, you know? I'm ready to rock. And so Adam, you just mentioned that Jameis Winston showed up to OTAs with a limp, so can you give us the latest on Jameis Winston's health status? Yes, he is where he needs to be right now. And I don't think it's a question of whether he'll be cleared to return to play so much is when it's a question of what's the return to performance like, but he is doing everything that he is supposed to be doing right now. He is on track to be able to play in the regular season opener. They obviously are going to be careful with him this summer and make sure that he does what he's supposed to when he's supposed to, but right now all sides point to Jameis Winston being able to start the saints regular season opener, which will be big for this team. He feels good about where he's at. His doctors feel good about where he goes at

Baker Mayfield, the browns quarterback requested a trade. I think it's been pretty obvious the mutual decision on both sides is to move on. Breaking news that we have here on NFL live, the browns have officially traded Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers. If Baker Mayfield, is anything like he was two years ago. The Panthers are going to be a playoff football team. Good job. If something goes the wrong way and he's not the quarterback that everyone expects in the beer. It might be the last time he has an opportunity to compete for a starting quarterback position. Oh yeah, we got some off season news and we're here to break it all down. This is NFL live. I'm Shay cornette, doing our Sam, acho, Adam Schefter. All the guys here alongside as well as we continue to break down, as I said, the biggest off season news yet and that is former number one overall pick Baker Mayfield leaving Cleveland and going to the Carolina Panthers. Yeah, the move was made official yesterday that baker and a conditional 2024 pick would be on their way out. The Panthers will pay just under 5 million and Mayfield salary while the browns will pay ten and a half million. The remainder will be converted into incentives, adding more pressure to Mayfield to make up for some of that loss, money. And so now we're a day later and some time to digest all of this until it's welcome in Adam Schefter. And so the Panthers have a quarterback room that includes Sam darnold, whose 5th year option they obviously picked up and they drafted rookie Matt corral. So with that being said, is baker really the surefire starter in Carolina? Not the surefire starter Shay and think about it this way. The Carolina Panthers now have the first and third overall selections from the 2018 draft and in return for the first and third selections of that drift. All they had to give up was a second fourth, 5th and 6th round draft picks. So they bought both those quarterbacks on discount and there's a reason that both are on discount because both have struggled to establish themselves, but the Panthers plan is to have an open competition at training camp this summer. Now I still think that Baker Mayfield probably winds up as the favorite to win that job. Carolina wouldn't have been as interested as it has been in baker if it didn't plan to play him, but for now they are planning to have an open competition for that starting job allowing Baker Mayfield and Sam darnold to compete for the starting job and don't forget the fact that the team also used a second round draft pick on Matt corral. So there's a third quarterback that's also in that mix, but it figures to be a showdown between Mayfield and Arnold battling it out during camp to see who will be the starting quarterback on opening day versus. None other than the Cleveland Browns. Hey, I can't wait for that. So the last time we saw Baker Mayfield healthy was two seasons ago, right? And so we'll see what happens this season, but he brought the browns to the playoffs for the first time since 2002 after going 11 and 5 in the regular season. But unfortunately, the browns couldn't capitalize on that success last season. It Mayfield took a major step back. His total QBR decreased by over 30 points that's by far the largest decrease in the league last season. Okay, so we already talked about what the monetary incentives if this all works out well in Carolina. But now guys, Sam, I'm going to you first here. It wasn't an easy road for Baker Mayfield to get to this point. And so I'm sorry, Sam rather, is this baker's last chance at a starting job, so to speak? I believe it is. It wasn't an easy road for Baker Mayfield nor has it been throughout his NFL career or even his college career. Remember, he walked on Texas tech, he left Texas tech, went to Oklahoma, didn't have a scholarship, earned the starting spot. So he knows a little bit about adversity. But the issue is, in the NFL, they don't care about adversity. They care about production. Will you overcome the adversity and Baker Mayfield has had opportunities to do that two years ago, 26 touchdowns, 800 interceptions, lettuce team, to the playoffs, first playoff win in a long, long time. But last year with some adversity, obviously a torn labrum playing through it. He had a very, very down year. And so with everything that transpired last year, how the team seemed like they weren't really for him. There was whispers coming out of the locker room that all of a sudden you get another opportunity, not to back up like some quarterbacks, but to start on a team that has a defense that is ascending, they were number two and yards allowed last year, a team that has Christian McCaffrey at running back. I think this is baker's last chance for a legitimate starting opportunity in the NFL. Well, Sam, here's the thing Carolina gets a chippy Baker Mayfield, which is the best version of Baker Mayfield. Somebody that's trying to prove everybody wrong which he has done consistently throughout the course of his career and make no mistake about a Carolina is somebody that has wanted Baker Mayfield here for weeks now. The conversations between the Panthers and the browns go back to earlier, this all season when baker first issued his trade ultimatum. And you see the offense that he'll be working in there is a weapon assuming he can win the starting job, of course, but Caroline has been interested in him all along. And so even though this team does plan to have an open competition where each quarterback will have a chance to win the starting job, clearly they're interested in Baker Mayfield. And they believe that Baker Mayfield as the real chance to bounce back to be the type of quarterback he was two years ago when he was healthier than he was last year. And if they're wrong, then all they wound up giving up was a conditional 5th round pick in the 2024 draft. What are we really talking about? It's a minimal investment. Carolina's best hope is that one of these quarterbacks lives up to his potential and becomes the type of quarterback that this franchise can build around long-term. So we keep having to go back to this 2020 season, right? And like remember what it was like to have Baker Mayfield when he was healthy. Well, I looked up some stats, guys. He played his last game with OBJ and Halloween. From the beginning of 2020 to that game, he had a better touchdown interception ratio than Joe burrow, okay? And he also, over that same stretch, averaged more yards per pass attempt than Justin Herbert. So that's all good news. But all this drama leads to a perfect week one matchup. When the Panthers, welcome baker's former team, to Carolina. They set this thing up perfect, not even knowing. The question is, who will be under center for both teams? Now, we already discussed the panther side of things, of course. But what about the browns who obviously no longer have that Baker Mayfield option? And so, even without him, all three of the browns quarterbacks on the current roster, they do have experience, the Sean Watson, Jacoby Brissette, and Josh jobs who joined the team this off season, unlike the Panthers, the QB room all has at least 6 years of NFL experience under their belt. That's some good news and so Adam back here with us obviously on NFL live was the timing of this trade for the browns related at all to the deshaun Watson disciplinary hearings ending last week. Chad, I think some people wonder that, but the truth of the matter is they are completely unrelated. The fact of the matter is the Panthers and the browns have been in these discussions and they were close to competing a deal a couple of weeks ago for Baker Mayfield and the browns are aware of the fact that obviously the hearing occurred last week for deshaun Watson that posterior and briefs are due to the judge in the case Sue Al Robinson next week and that a ruling could come really at any point right now. But the fact that things traded Baker Mayfield when they did has nothing to do with the Desean Watson case that Desean Watson case continues to sit out there. Everybody expects him to get some form of discipline. The question is, what does the judge rule and it's hard to determine how she will rule because there's no track record here. She hasn't ruled on any disciplinary cases in the past. So there's no way to read into what she might be thinking right now. So clearly everybody's waiting to see what she says, but the browns knew all along that they

"Job and be the number one quarterback. If something goes the wrong way and he's not the quarterback that everyone expects him to be or everyone thinks that he's going to go back to his old ways, it might be the last time he has an opportunity to compete for a starting quarterback position. So he's going to have to have that chip on his shoulder. He's going to have to be the best that he can be going into a new place. He's not going to have the number one overall pick tag to his name now. Yes, he was formerly, but now he's going to a place where he's only making 4.85 million. He's not making the big money that he would as a number one pick, where they force you to be the guy day one. He's going to have to go in there and earn the starting position. We will see if he is able to do that, of course, you guys mentioned that they also have Sam darnold and Matt corral and PJ walker in the quarterback room right now with the Panthers. On the other side of things, the browns, what they have in their quarterback room still still has some question marks surrounding that. Adam, as far as the situation goes with deshaun Watson, the browns obviously still waiting to see if there is a suspension how long and what that looks like moving forward. So what more can you tell us about their quarterback room and the expectations the browns have? Look, the fact that Baker Mayfield was traded today really is not related to the deshaun Watson decision that everybody's awaiting from the judge Sue Al Robinson. Cleveland knew that at some point in time, deshaun Watson was going to be facing discipline and it knew that it wanted to move on from Baker Mayfield. So in a way, the two situations are separate because Cleveland made its decision once it went out and traded for deshaun Watson and gave him a fully guaranteed $230 million contract. The day that that happened was the day that Baker Mayfield's tenure in Cleveland unofficially came to an end. The browns have known this was going to happen. They knew they would be moving on from Baker Mayfield and they have prepared for the day when deshaun Watson is disciplined. That's going out and signing Jacoby Brissette. That's going out and signing Josh Dobbs to back him up. That's having two quarterbacks for if and when they lose Desean Watson. So they're ready for that scenario because they knew that at some point in time they would be moving on for Baker Mayfield as soon as they could agree with another team on the proper compensation and who would take the salary. Yeah, Jacob said, is that him pointed out such a big part of that because when they signed him, they looked at him as a bridge quarterback. Somebody who could start games for them while Watson's out. Now, if the suspension is an incredibly long time, let's say a year or more, then maybe they would revisit, look at potential trade options, but they don't have a lot of trade capital or salary cap space to get that done. The free agency market is pretty dried out. And so right now I'm told Jacoby Brissette is a plan is still for him to be the guy moving forward. So it seems like there are a lot of things on all sides of this that are positives for each team. So when you look at this big picture today, who won the day? Is it Cleveland? Is it Carolina or is it Baker Mayfield? I'm going to have to say Carolina. They have an extra quarter back in the quarterback room. They're going into training camp with three quarterbacks. They don't know who the day one starter is. I think it's going to be Sam darnold, but you look at what they're paying. They're paying $4.85 million for potentially a starting quarterback, which is unheard of in 2022. So I think Carolina, they came out on top in this deal. Baker Mayfield with an opportunity now to have a resurgence of his career. We'll see what he is able to do in Carolina if we're talking about who won the day. I also think maybe us with the Corvette story. One the day, Nick, that was a great one to hear on NFL live and we'll, of course, continue to follow this story.

"T fooled everybody on that play. He's got Hollywood Brown. He's got a touchdown. It's a 1510 5 touchdown. We've got to go white out Wednesday here on NFL live after an off season full of big trades and massive contracts. Adam Schefter takes us through how it all went down. What's up with all these wide receivers? There never has been an all season in which so many wide receivers have run out routes going from one team to another. Let this serve as a reminder. Devonta Adams is now in Las Vegas catching goals from Derek Carr instead of Aaron Rodgers. Tyreek hill is in Miami, teaming up with two of tongo by lower instead of Patrick Mahomes. AJ Brown now shares a huddle with Jalen hurts in Philadelphia instead of Ryan Tannehill in Tennessee. Amari Cooper will be joining forces with deshaun Watson in Cleveland, not dak Prescott in Dallas, while George Landry has left Cleveland for New Orleans. Alan Robinson is in Los Angeles to join forces with Matthew Stafford instead of Justin Fields and Robert Woods left LA to team up with Tannehill in Tennessee. At a time when more players are being in power, no position has exercised those powers more than wide receivers. Plenty to break down with all these deals, but let's stick with Devante Adams because a lot of people assume that he would be back in Green Bay after Aaron Rodgers agreed to return. We know how that ended now. Adams prepping to play with Derek Carr in Las Vegas and what a weapon he is since the start of the 2018 season, Adams leads the NFL in receptions receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, but what will that prediction production rather look like with a new team and a new quarterback former packers quarterback and Hall of Famer Brett Favre weighed in on the topic with TMZ sports. I do think that devonta will make dairy car better and in time they will be a dynamic duo. Now will it be the duo that Aaron and devonta had time will tell, I think Derek Carr was very good quarterback. But he's not an Aaron's league. I'd be shocked if he had the same year. He's had previous years. That's not to say he can't do it, but I would be shocked. Dan Jeremy and rob back with us now and that's Brett Favre's take. But Dan, let's start with you. Do you see any sort of drop off for atoms this fall? I don't think so. Look, Kelsey, I mean, when you talk to people around the league about devonta Adams, I don't think there's a strong sense that he's an Aaron Rodgers creation, right? He's asked defensive backs who are the toughest receivers to cover, and his name always comes up first or almost or close to first. One of the first, his releases are great. He in and out of breaks, you know, he runs his route. I think he'll do very, very well. You can argue that he has a supporting cast around him of past catchers. It might be superior to what they had in recent years in Green Bay. When you look at the likes of Darren Waller and hunter Renfro, guys like that, it may be that he doesn't even have to see the same kind of defensive attention that he saw in Green Bay. So while Brett Favre, obviously, I think it's fair to assume that any receiver would be somewhat less without Aaron Rodgers. I think in this particular case, Devante Adams with his level of skill, going to play with a guy he knows very well from college and Derek Carr. I think it's possible he just keeps it going. Yeah, Dan, Darren Waller looms large here because I'm told that they came out of OTAs and mini camp with Waller and the Raiders offense, thinking, hey, we really have something here. Josh McDaniels offense, pretty friendly to tight ends, depending on the matchup each week. They could really feed him a lot and you have three guys when you count Adams Waller and hunter renfrow that you all have to get involved. But to Dan's point, if you ask 20 people around the league, who's the best wide receiver right now in the NFL, I would say at least 12 to 15 would say Devante Adams. So he's a singular talent that stands alone. He's got the chemistry with Derek Carr from their Fresno state days. So he will get fed the ball, it just depends on whether it's going to be the same appetite as he got in Green Bay. Put up video game like numbers when they were at Fresno state. I'm sure that looks a little bit different. This go round, rob, what do you think? He's going to have a huge year. And I bet you Josh McDaniels is sitting at the lunch table, just drawing up plays on napkins. Like, oh, this is going to be a great one with Waller. Oh, this is going to be a great one with Adams together in the slot. Oh, one's going vertical. One's running under route. I really think that he's going to have a great, great year because of the fact that you got car, you got that chemistry from college. They already talked about the chemistry. And then you also talk about having a tight end, which Joshua McDaniels has great experience with the tight end position Rob Gronkowski. So I think that he will have a great career and a great season this year just based on the fact it's a fresh start. We know what he can do and he's excited to go to a new place and play with his old college teammate. It will change definitely with a different quarterback and all the weapons he has around him. He was targeted 32% of his routes last season. The highest rate by any receiver in the NFL. FX's What We Do in the Shadows. I don't know what it means, but I like how it sounds. The show Rolling Stone called TV's funniest comedy returns. My search for new wife is not been going so great. Wait, where are you going? We're going to open a vampire night club.

Dolphins give Tyree kill a four year $120 million deal. Malcolm nation, I am so ready to be a part of spins up. This move is great. Monumental for the dolphins. They are explosive and they are all in. That's what I do, baby. I'm a cheater, man. Tyree kill Gina, touchdown. You can't catch me. The Miami Dolphins have surrounded two a tongue by loa with loads of offensive talent. You're up, man. It's going to be a fast season, but it's going to be a fun season. Big quarterback news today, but we are sticking with the wide outs right now on this white out Wednesday. And the massive moves that teams made this off season, the focus now turns to tyreek hill, who was traded from Kansas City to Miami back in April. So tua has to be thrilled, Dan with this edition. And with that comes, all kinds of pressure. So how big a year of it, Dan? Is this for tua in Miami? The biggest. I mean, the look, he was the number four, 5 overall pick, just two years ago, one ahead of Justin Herbert, who's everybody's darling and getting MVP love in the preseason this year. So he's got to show that he can be the guy. He hasn't stayed healthy for either of his first two seasons. So he's got to do that. And you heard Adam's comment there in the lead in. They've surrounded him with loads of offensive talent. Tyreek hill, a very deep running back room. They went out and got him a high priced left tackle toron Armstead. From the New Orleans Saints, everything is set up for two a tongue by loa to show the Miami Dolphins and their new coaching staff. He can be the guy to lead them into the future. And if he doesn't show it, I do think that they're going to be looking elsewhere at that position next off season. And Tyree kills the absolute best weapon at a young quarterback and have. I recently talked to an AFC scout, who had a great quote. They said, Tyreke Hill really is like the Steph Curry of the NFL, just because of the space he creates on the field with his speed. You have to put two guys on him. Sometimes three, you can move them all over. And so it just creates more space for everybody else. And the chiefs are going to greatly miss that, but the dolphins are going to love it. Now, the chiefs meanwhile are just going to try to equal opportunity offense their way through this season, but Andy Reid Patrick Mahomes have won at least 12 games every year they've been together with mahomes as the starter and they like guys like Marquez Valdez scanlan, juju Smith Schuster. They'll make it work. And just like Steph Curry, you put other people on him and he still finds ways to do what he wants. Rob, what are your

"There will be no issues. Everyone will accept them. And rob, if you look about, look at it this way. Think about it like this. Cleveland basically rid off road off Baker Mayfield. Some of the browns teammates rode off Baker Mayfield. We saw Robbie Anderson right off baker meet for all those. Today he said it was taken out of context. Of course, he would say that right now, obviously he's going to want to see what Baker Mayfield is about. But there have been so many people here over the last year who have doubted question criticized Baker Mayfield. We've seen that at every walk of his life when he was leaving high school as he entered college when he was in college. People doubting him and he's usually responded to that type of treatment. Well, he goes to Carolina again, facing all those critics. All those naysayers, once again, and he steps in there, I think with a chip on his shoulder with a chance to show everybody he's a better quarterback than he showed last year when he played through injuries and as a chance again to lay claim to that starting quarterback job in Carolina to be the long-term solution that this franchise is looking for and essentially got on the cheap today. Certainly an opportunity for him to kind of have a resurgence of his career in this opportunity with Carolina. On the other side of things, Cleveland, what do they do now? Brown's owner Jimmy has released the following statement today saying quote, from the moment he was drafted, he gave us all for this organization and this city with his fierce competitive spirit. He excited the fan base and accomplished things that no player at his position had done in Cleveland for a very long time. So certainly some nice words there from the owner about Baker Mayfield as he now moves to Carolina. Jeremy, the other side of this is what happens now with the browns and assuming that deshaun Watson does end up with a suspension. They still have Jacoby Brissette there. So what does this offense look like now in Cleveland? I just taught us some people involved asked around today in light of this news and was told that the browns still look at Jacoby brissett who they sign this off season as a bridge quarterback. So he can play some games while deshaun Watson is presumably suspended. I'm told that they feel like, okay, if Watson's going to be suspended a very, very long time. We're talking a year or more, then maybe they would look around at their options, but they also know they can't really do much on the trade front because they gave up so much to get to Sean Watson. They don't have a lot of draft capital left. They're not going to go out and give two first round picks for like a Kirk Cousins or somebody who would be a solution there for a year or two. So right now, the plan loosely is to roll with Brissette, see where it goes, hope they get Watson back in short order. And Jeremy, they don't have a lot of draft capital. And they don't have a lot of room against the salary cap. So they're shorthanded on two fronts in Cleveland, but this is why the browns went out and signed Jacoby Brissette while they went out and signed Josh Dobbs, anticipating that there was a real chance that there was going to be discipline imposed upon deshaun Watson. So they've made those plans. And those plans are those two quarterbacks who are already there beset and Dobbs and they're hoping that Watson will be back sooner rather than later while waiting for a decision from the judge right now.

"baker mayfield" Discussed on NFL Live
"Welcome into NFL live. We have got some major breaking news to start the show. It comes out of Cleveland as the browns have officially traded Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers pending a team physical. Adam Schefter is here with us now in Adam, what more can you tell us about the deal? The truth of the matter is a deal between these two teams came close to happening a couple of weeks back and talks never really evaporated. The two sides stayed in contact and Carolina remained as really the best and lone hope for Baker Mayfield where he would wind up where he would be traded. And so in return, the Cleveland Browns get back a conditional 2024 5th round draft pick that could go up to a fourth round draft pick based on playtime here. Obviously the browns will pay ten and a half $1 million of Baker Mayfield's $18.85 million salary for the season. The Carolina Panthers are paying $4.85 million of baker salary and baker is giving back some money that he can earn an incentives, but now the Carolina Panthers have Baker Mayfield and they have Sam darnold and they are planning to have a quarterback competition this summer best quarterback wins, but clearly they've been interested in baker all along and you'd have to think that he will have a good shot of starting an opening day. And if he does start an opening day, it will be Carolina versus Cleveland, baker will certainly have a lot to play for on opening day. Couldn't have written it any better if we tried with that one right there. Adam, you mentioned that they have been interested in him for a while now. So why now after a quiet off season did they decide to make this move? I think we get past the holiday. Like I said, the two teams had been in contact. They had been close to completing a deal and the closer we get to training camp, why not make that happen now? And I think that was the mindset of both teams. They were close enough to be able to make this happen and basically today it was just put into place an agreement pending a physical that Baker Mayfield still has to pass in Carolina shouldn't be an issue once he passes that physical, the trade then would become official and Baker Mayfield would be a Carolina panther, preparing for opening day against the Cleveland Browns. All right, so baker may feel to the panther, Sam darnold, obviously, also on that roster in a quarterback controversy. In Carolina, what a way to start things off here on NFL live today with Jeremy Fowler. Dan Graziano and rob nikov with us I'm Kelsey Riggs and guys, plenty to break down even further with this. So Dan, let's start with you and what's the upside you think of this deal for the Carolina Panthers? Well, it's another option for them, Kelsey. Look, the Carolina Panthers do not have their long-term answer, maybe even their short term answer at quarterback, and they know this. They tried last off season to get Matthew Stafford and they got outbid by the rams. They tried this off season to get to Sean Watson, and we know how that turned out. He's in Cleveland, which is actually oddly part of the reason Baker Mayfield's now in Carolina. So the Panthers need in the absence of a perfect solution, they are trying to attack the problem with volume. So you heard Adam say, it's going to be a quarterback competition. Could be Sam darnold could be Baker Mayfield. They drafted Matt corral, who's a long-term play for them. But they get a look at Baker Mayfield for a pretty low price. And if he shows something, then he could be on their list of potential solutions going forward once this season is over. Very low risk deal for Carolina to get a guy that has won some games in the league and could be an upside play. Yeah, Dan, I agree with you on that as far as depth is concerned. You've got a young quarterback. You got Sam darnold. I'm following the money on this one. They guaranteed Sam darnold $18.8 million with the 5th year option. He's going to be the starting quarterback. I know it's going to be the competition. They always say competition, but they got a great deal on baker. 5 million bucks, the browns are eaten ten of it. So again, I think that this will be a competition, but it's probably in baker's best interest. New changes scenery, you get to a new organization. Yeah, it'll be, it'll be a competition, but I don't really think it'll be a competition. I think Sam darnold is a starting quarterback. He's going to go in a training camp as the quarterback for this football team. If baker can make a splash, maybe he'll be the guy week one, but I still think Sam darnold is a starting quarterback week one. Jeremy, how about you? We've seen all the controversy right now that this creates with this quarterback room and what they have there. Do you feel like baker could be the week one starter or does he have a leg up, potentially over Sam darnold? Well, certainly he'll be in play because Carolina felt and everybody there agreed that they had to upgrade the quarterback position. And Matt rule needed help. Now, I was told not everybody in Carolina was completely sold on Baker Mayfield when they first started looking into him around draft time, but they all came around to the fact that okay, we have to upgrade here somehow, but owner David tepper, he was waiting for a, quote, great deal. That's what I was told. That he didn't want to pay 9 or $10 million here. $5 million ended up being the sweet spot. And it's sort of surprising that Mayfield actually took a little bit less renegotiated his contract to get out of Cleveland, but that's how desperate he was to have a chance to play elsewhere. You look at it this way. They traded a conditional 2024 5th round draft pick to get Baker Mayfield. They made the trade last year for Sam darnold. They drafted Matt corral this year. Caroline is hoping that one of these quarterbacks shines this summer, lays claim to the job and can be somebody that this organization builds around for the future. The panther still don't know who will be their quarterback long term. Maybe it'll be none of these quarter X, but they believe by adding one more to the mix at a very low cost when they're paying only $4.85 million of baker and Mayfield salary for this season less than $5 million. Why not take that chance? Now you've got Mayfield. Now you've got darnold. Now you've got corral, may the best man win, may the best win shine, and hopefully for Carolina's sake, one of them plays well enough to lay whole to that job for a long period of time. Panthers haven't won a playoff game since 2015, Baker Mayfield, of course, was able to do that with the browns for the first time since 1994. We'll see if he can get the Panthers. They were talking about controversy, but how about this, not just a quarterback controversy? What's it going to be like inside the locker room? Because remember this from Instagram, back in April. Robbie Anderson, star wide receiver reacting to a report that the Panthers had just interest in trading for Baker Mayfield before the draft, his response on that fan's post was a very long no. So Dan, your take on this, how does this go over now that it is official and Baker Mayfield is with the Panthers in that same locker room? Yeah, I mean, look, it's going to be up to everybody to get along. Baker Mayfield is going to have an opportunity to show Robbie Anderson in any other doubters that might be there. That they were wrong, right? I mean, if he practice as well, and he shows he has a handle on the offense and he looks like he can be the guy that can leave the huddle. Then I don't doubt that Robbie Anderson or any other skeptics on that roster would come around if their opinion is one that's negative of Baker Mayfield. What these guys all, rob can discuss this as a former player. These guys all want to win. They all want to get paid. They know that the quarterback has to be right in order for that to be the case. So I think. Yeah. You can also do it what Dan was talking about like being in a locker room. It's about respect. And when a guy walks in and even if there was a tweet or whatever, something was set outside of that, they weren't on the same team. So now he's in the same locker room. Now they're going into training camp, and they're going to be practicing together. It's about earning the respect of the guys around you. Because honestly, there's been guys that have been on teams with me. They're not very good. And if they were paid a ton of money, we're just like, all right, well, he's not really going to help us win. He's not going to be here. And you know the guys that are going to be there and you know the guys that aren't. So if he comes in and he performs well and he performs at a high level,

"Be able to handle that. Here's a serious question. Here's a fun serious question to end the podcast on. I mean, because the Patriots have demolished the jets, demolished the jets the last two times they played them. Yep. Belichick takes certain joy in that. There's like a twisted pleasure in that. If you made the Patriots play with ten defensive players, both times. Do you think that they would, they could sweep the jets? No. No? Well, let's put it this way. You would have to say it because once there's only ten players on the field, you just run the ball and that's how that's how you win at that point. It would have to be something like if you made them pull a player off the field as soon as the quarterback dropped back. I think that's kind of the question we're getting at in this very very realistic scenario. In that case, I still think it would be chaotic enough to yeah, I think the Patriots still win those games. You think, yeah, I mean, and this is not enough. Bill Belichick's is a really good defensive coach. And now I just can't get out of my head the visual of the ball is snapped and then just someone completely pivot sideways and just sprints off the heel. Like I just love like runs off the field. Is there a trapdoor out there? Yeah, I'm not sure exactly how you do it. Like a wiring so that they fly up. Oh. The Madden cheat code jump. That was the do you ever play them back in the day when, oh gosh, I forget, I mean, whatever the Sega code was. But if you hit the jump button, you're like defensive lineman could jump through the roof of the stadium and so that you would block all the kicks. You could do that. So you would just like levitate them over over the field, you know? Was that a good thing? I didn't know that was a thing. It was a cheat code and Madden. I remember I had Madden 98 for the PC. Which was wow. Yeah. And what kind of life are you living? Very sad. You're my only friend. And so yeah, and there's a cheat code that you can put in and you would hit the B button because I remember it was one of those generic Microsoft controllers. And you would hit the B button and your defensive lineman would jump through the roof of the stadium, like he would go, but she time it right. And then you just block all the field goals in the extra points. She's like, I mean, it sounds, it seemed a lot more fun back then than it does now. Yes..
"baker mayfield" Discussed on The MMQB NFL Podcast
"If I could add another twist to this metaphor. It's gonna say, say wobble one more time, see if we can see if we can make it work. The only time we've heard from Baker Mayfield has been via his wife's Instagram, he looked quite happy. It looked like a nice IPA or maybe, I mean, he probably seems like a guy who's in the moment right now and I mean, hazy IPAs, I feel like are on their way out, but I mean, it looked like a hazy IPA. It looked like he was enjoying it. Look crisp and refreshing. And I just imagine and perhaps this is my tinted schadenfreude version of events that I sort of want to see play out, but, you know, he gets somewhere else, he plays pretty good because he was the number one overall pick in the draft, and he becomes a serviceable starter somewhere in the NFL. And meanwhile, the browns have to wait like two and a half years to get to Sean Watson on the field. And I just don't think, I mean, maybe it's all this summer sun that I'm getting, maybe I have a cheerier disposition, but I don't see that being out of the realm of possibility right now. So on Friday, Washington Post's Mark maske reported that the NFL is going to argue for a significant suspension when a speaking to the independent arbitrator who is overseeing the Watson case for the league. That suggests that we could be looking at possibly a year, maybe a year plus here for Sean Watson. He might not play in 2022. That's within the realm of possibility here. If that happens, I mean, I'll just ask if you were Baker Mayfield, Connor, and deshaun Watson were suspended for a year, would you stay there and play quarterback for a year on the last year of your contract? I don't know, it's a good question. And so let's set the parameters, right? If I were, I don't want with my answer, anyone to think that Baker Mayfield needs to do this, right? Because I think that there is a segment of the football population that's arguing well. If he did this, then other teams wouldn't think he was such a jerk. And so sure, maybe, but I don't think that that's something that he has to do just because a couple of scouts didn't like him in the NFL rumor mill gets out of control. And Odell Beckham didn't like him. Let's look at the list of people that odo Beckham doesn't like. It's fairly lengthy and includes several Hall of Fame quarterbacks at this point. So Baker Mayfield is not alone in this regard. He was with Lil Wayne talking trash about Eli Manning. If I can remember correctly. And everyone seems to like Eli Manning just fine. But I would say that there is merit in going to do it, right? And so your first press conference, you come out and you say, hey, this is weird. I know it's going to be weird. I don't want to talk about deshaun Watson. I'm going to lead this team to the playoffs. And then I'm going to leave. And then I'm going to get out of your hair. So I'm going to try my best. You guys can try your best. And let's do this thing on three. And then I think that there's, you know, that's probably your best option. It's the best offense. It's the best talent, your option B is to go down to Carolina and play with Robbie Anderson who already tweeted that he didn't want you there. And offense. Coaching stuff that quite frankly is on its way out. I mean, I would be very surprised to see that last beyond 2022. So the browns to me would seem like the favorable option and maybe that's what Cleveland is falling back on. They know that, hey, this guy wants to exist in the NFL at some point after this and needs us just as much as we need him. Let's do it. But I don't know. That's what I would do. I don't know. What would your thought process be? Well, of course you have to suspend disbelief a little bit in this exercise. I mean, bigger Mayfield's feelings are hurt. His insides are wounded by all of this. So that factors into it. I guess the question is, do you want to say in Cleveland where you know you're one and done? You don't have a future with that team. How this is going to play out. In Carolina, you can at least kind of be like, okay, well, I could play this team to 9 and 8. And maybe steal wild card spot. And then we stick whether that's good news or bad news and that rule sticks around. You could stick around there and maybe start building something from scratch. Because that's kind of the thing in this league already. No one out there who, you know, Seattle. I mean, do you want to land in Seattle? It's kind of the same situation. Pete Carroll is obviously going to leave on his own terms, but Seattle is not a team that is about to take off. There's nowhere where you could really drop him in and be like, all right, here we go. We're all good here. The other thing that complicates it to me, and I don't think Baker Mayfield necessarily going to look at this as a factor, but you do have a good quarterback class coming into the league. So, yes, you can kind of be like, well, maybe Zach Wilson flames out, maybe Trey Lance flames out, maybe some of these young guys are no longer Daniel Jones. Maybe some of these young guys are no longer factors next off season and I have options, but they're also might just be there just might be no options for you. There might be fewer options than they're even our right now. If your Baker Mayfield come the 2023 off season. So if I'm him, I think I just want to get out of there because I just, it has to be so awkward to try and lead that locker room. You know, he takes tremendous pride. One of the things he talked about last year is he couldn't be the same type of leader because he wasn't playing well. And he implied and I think we all kind of understand that did have a lot to do with the injury issues. He was battling, but to try and reclaim that locker room when everyone there knows you're not the guy, I don't know, I don't know if I sign up for that. Perhaps it's because so I told you this, but I might drive to Cincinnati. I had to drive to Cincinnati for a recent assignment. Parts unknown subject unknown. And it was my flight got canceled. So it was about 20 hours of driving total. And so I dove into a 50 hour audiobook series on Winston Churchill. And so wait until I make the connection between Winston Churchill and Baker Mayfield. Because it is going to be awesome. Okay, so Winston Churchill knew he always wanted to be the prime minister, he knew he wanted to be big stuff. And so what he would do is he would when he was in the army, he would sign up for wars, just all around the world. And he would get, he would get his commander to just send him random places for no reason. He's like, oh, there's fighting in Cuba. Can you please send me to Cuba? And the guys like, okay, fine. And then he would go there and he would get a different color horse than everyone else. Everyone else would be on like a brown horse and he wanted like a white horse. And everyone would be like ducking under stuff. And he would just be running around like a crazy person, just being like, yeah, I don't care, you know, nothing bothers me because he wanted to win medals for bravery because he understood that people see the medals and they have that respect. With baker, isn't the ultimate move to go back into the place that you know that you have to win over. Win them back over with your play because if the browns start to and Baker Mayfield's playing well, all of a sudden it's like, oh yeah, that's my quarterback. You know how the NFL works. Guys all want to get fed. Everybody wants to get paid. If he wins their first two games for them, everybody turns on baker again, baker becomes a good guy. We start talking about the progressive commercials again, which we're always funny. And all of a sudden, he doesn't just walk into free agency 2023. He dives in like Scrooge mcduck, wasn't he the one that had the big money men. That he somehow didn't get horrifically.
Coach Chan Gailey and Doug Discuss NFL Free Agency
"Free agency, there are some teams that focus draft and free agency. There are some that tend to focus a lot of agency some tend to do draft more than anything else. How is free agency? Affected or does it affect your draft scenarios? Very much so. Oh, very much, so. If you can fill a whole on your football team via the free agency before you get to draft, then you tend not to push a guy in the draft, then he should be. And so, you know, oh gosh, we're desperate for a wide receiver, then you push somebody up a little bit higher than you should, but if you got one in free agency, now you don't have to make that push to free push that guy up the board. And just so we don't lose trying to cause my age. Okay. Going back to quarterbacks for just a second. Right. Personally, I'd rather have Baker Mayfield than any of those guys that are coming out this year. If I were one of those teams, I'd go get biker might feel before I'd take any of these guys.

Players Push Back Against Sheer Illogic of COVID Protocols in Professional Sports
"Texted me here, he said out of nowhere. He said, really hope we don't go through the insanity of canceling and postponing games again for this winter in spring. Need to decision makers to push this nonsense. I say, what are you talking about? NFL NBA and hockey. And so then I looked it up 20 browns players tested positive and 9 to ten rams players. Now then I went and I saw the story on the blaze dot com Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield lashed out at the NFL over the league's Chinese coronavirus protocols after 19 players were placed on the COVID-19 list ahead of the important games that will determine their standing in the playoffs. Mayfield fired off a series of tweets criticizing the protocols. Quote, NFL make up your mind on the protocols, showing up and making only three teams test, also you can keep the games scheduled to make money. And this is true. So what's happening in the NFL is because the vaccine is not working as they told it was, obviously, a 100% vaccinated leagues are now having massive outbreaks, they're not even testing every single team because they know if they tested every single team, the league would completely fall apart. So instead of actually caring about natural immunity early intervention or Therapeutics, they're testing teams rather selectively. So Baker Mayfield will now miss the browns game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Now, do you remember when Aaron Rodgers? Got tested positive for the Fauci virus and everyone condemned him because he was unvaccinated, but now other people who are fully vaccinated are testing positive and the media doesn't cover the fact that the vaccines not protecting them.

Like 8 browns one on the COVID list. They should not play that game, by the way. They should cancel the NFL games where teams can not play because that's not the product we're paying season ticket prices for. That's a product where three members of your offensive line are out and the browns. Baker Mayfield could get killed, and he should sue the league if that's the case. I mean, I love backups for one player to play. And the browns have the best offensive line coordinator in the world and Bill Callahan. It's the fans key is unflappable. He'll put together a plan. But I mean, 8 players together COVID. So it's going everywhere. The browns are looking around and saying, did you guys not get your booster shot? You know, you got to get your booster shot. They're playing in the season. They're 95% vaccinated. They're not scoff laws. I don't know what Kevin and I are Irving ever ended up Kyrie Irving ever updated. But let me try that one. I don't know what Kyrie Irving ever ended up doing. How's that? But it doesn't matter. This virus is going to break out. People are going to get it. I'm flying on an airplane today. I'll have a mask on. If I get it, I'll be fine because I've had two vaccines and a booster and I'll be out for two days. That's really what it's not a problem. It's the original deal. It's a bad deal if you're not vaccinated. I mean, it's a very rolling with the dice. Run out and get your vaccination quickly if you're not, because it's going to be a punishing way, according to the CDC, come January.

Can i go to big big big up there. Let me go to the big gotta go. Let me just break this down for y'all look at the asc. I'm only talk about two tiers. 'cause i'm only on talk about the good teams. The really competent team start last year last year. We knew what it was chiefs head and shoulders above everybody else up there with joe bills. You'll bills do anything last year right now. Out of that steelers browns ravens. Titans copes for me. It was any given sunday really with them. Dogs that whole second tier they were gonna fight each other but we knew who to top tier was okay. This year baker. Can you get into that top tier for me. Please can you please. And i just don't see itself jackson and the ravens. I think they've jumped up. You know what i'm saying. I'm trying to get into that top tier i understand. They lost the raiders. Which is why. I put the raiders now in the second tier man. I have to get the colts out of there. But the titans steelers browns bills now to me. They're in that second tier and kill. Baker can do like lamar and get his team into that. Next here i just don't see the browns being able to get to a super bowl. Can they wanna play off game. Yes i can the championship game. May but i'm going back to the desk because i almost back to. The deaths are getting taller growing with the hell going on with the bottom of your soup. My michael cleveland. Getting a little risque. We're kind of shoes are those. I don't even know they gift. Okay i could tell they. Free no striping. Data's okay let's go. Let's talk about how far you can go with a baker mayfield lead browns. Go to where we ain't going dog dog dog. People think i hate on baker. Just because i respect the facts i respect the numbers sale all the sudden. I'm not the one to invite to the dinner party. Everybody's sitting here wanna combine over baker mayfield. You know what. I'm gonna give you guys who support baker mayfield this even though you're rooting interests and never ever make you overlook the facts. However i will give you this you know. Baker mayfield is the gave me this. This is amazing. Baker mayfield is almost in barely good enough to win that week. One game against the chiefs and then he barely good enough to beat the houston ticks. When it's actually. I hate that essabar. Browns fans would tyrod taylor. Getting hurt task. Who baker mayfield is if you think he's good you're right if you think he's back you're right to and that's the problem. Don't believe me less. Listen to the actions of kevin's to fancy. Y'all gonna take this one baker. Let's be real. Baker mayfield is considered a top ten quarterback by those who believe in him. And he's not considered a top and quarterbacks who those who don't believe them. I don't believe in him and i don't think his team believes the him as well. At least the play call doesn't believe in him. You know what baker mayfield right. Now is twenty seventh in passing attempts in the nfl. Don't trust him now. That's coming off a year. He was twenty eighth so they basically saying we're gonna do this again baker. We're going to let you manage this team. Why not bring that up because baker mayfield still is the guy who has more interceptions this year then touchdowns bring that up because you look at certain things about baker mayfield. They're not top ten but it's still some positives he's thirteen yards and he's thirteenth and quarterback rating but that's not top ten worthy but close. Let's talk about baker mayfield in totality and then in mentality whereas top ten to places. One interceptions thrown. That's not a place you want to be top ten. He is seven throwing interceptions right now. Okay that's not a good step. Let's talk about where he's also top. Ten completion percentage And then you gotta get smarter about the game of football realize if you have the fewest attempts you've got the opportunity to have the grader. Completion percentage because your tips. So i don't like your face right now so many say something make you smile because you're not like that. I'm not like in baker mayfield. The worst part about baker mayfield is his mentality. always say he goes to full frat boy frat boy fresh. I hate when i see this as a leader and you know what. I'm talking about baker. Didn't you learn from your mistake last year when you do interception and oakdale went chasing down your interception and what happened so then beggar mayfield toes interception in this game and i immediately just the mitchell note you like. I hope i don't see baker mayfield and screen. No go fat frat boy fresh and look what happens. Who gets hurt on. Play trying to stop a interception return baker mayfield. Why that a problem one is a contract year. Brought like you're trying to get paid right now. Let's keep it real but beside the money the leadership guys need you to do your job and do your job. Well they don't need you to get out of position turned into a defender for one. Play off of what interception and then puts your whole career damn near on the line and then post game you know what. He says about the interception. Oh it was a bad week blah blah blah. and then. I saw the runner coming back.

"College because well. We don't know if you're going to outperform guy that goes one hundred and seventy in the draft. So you gotta prove it on your rookie contract. Baker mayfield took a strong step forward and proving that he should be in the conversation but baker mayfield has to have a great season bitch year to solidify a being discussed as being really a franchise quarterback and be. Do you pay him. As a franchise quarterback hype can only take you so far and right now. He's got a double down on having a strong into his season last year. She's got you guys emoji with the head exploded. Doing looking at that graphic did listen. That was a well-built. Argument is total balderdash tall. Set out the window lavar. Come on listen. Two years ago. He had hugh jackson as a coach. Fielding on the sideline last year. Freddie kitchens was basically a bartender somehow being a head coach in the nfl and again it was a nightmare. Don't compare those those first two years of bicker had look at last year. What have you done for me lately. Baker mayfield last year was phenomenal top ten quarterback in the nfl coordinator pro football focus. Not not me the stats. The numbers say baker is on the upward trajectory. Meanwhile gardner meant you are. The jaguars is urban. Meyer getting hit over the head with trade offers for gardner bench. You guys are way too low on baker mayfield nebraska and now rick's gonna come over the top and hammer me. Because that's what he wants to do. But i'm just telling you guys like odell. Beckham is one of the top fifteen receivers in the league. Top ten he's proven he stuff to prove. They're basically adding that to an offense. That was a juggernaut last year. They were awesome in the second half of the season as you said they have the best one to running back hambo offensive line. That's probably looking at top. Seven eight in the league up. Like things are really shaping up well for baker. I'm trying to escape where the puck is going not where it has been and i know it's been ugly baker in the past but forget about the past xamax not not to jump on you. But that's even more reason for there to be pressure on baker mayfield to produce. He's got a top five. I wouldn't say top. Seven matter of fact i might go as far as to say them in the colts that had the most elite offense affronts end the game. You have to elite running backs in your backfield. You have two elite receivers. You have two elite tight ends. So there's even more reason for his numbers not to be comparible. Even if you had excuses of using coaches from the past the bottom line here for me is that baker mayfield has every single thing. A quarterback could ever want need which for. Here's my christmas list guys. I need an offensive line. That's a top ranked offensive line. Hey i need a running game. That can keep the pressure off of me. And so that. I have time to throw a ball. Plaques fakes will work. I can move out of the pocket because i'm a little mobile. Can you guys delivered out for me. Well i need some receivers. That are uncomfortable that run really good routes and well could be considered one of the greats or greats plural in the league. It's even more reason. Jay mac for you to sit there and put the pressure on baker mayfield and say if you are not unquestionably the answer to this team. If you are not unquestionably a franchise guy with this type of talent. Then it should be very easy to come to a conclusion and save if you can't produce what this group then. There's no reason for me to think that. I can bring you in here and you can produce here and is definitely no reason for me to give you a contract that we reward you not being an elite guy with all the elite talent around you back. I'm not coming over the top to hammer. You actually looking for an invitation to go to vegas with you because you're entertaining. Hell brother and i would be trying to convince you not to throw your money away there. Let's use it and have a good time. I wasted on some of these picks baker mayfield as an mvp. You must have got some great odds on that brother. That's the only explanation. I have for that so i have a question for you is if baker mayfield is indeed the long-term answer and he proved last season that he's made this meteoric rise and he's only going to continue and he's going to be. Mvp this year. What makes sense for the cleveland browns. To at least offer contract now to get into this price before he becomes. Mvp rather than wait and then giving them an extension at mvp prices. They have not done that they have. There's nothing on the table for him to refuse. The great poet suggest to me that they're not buying just yet that he's the quarterback that you think he is and by the way that pro football focus ranking okay. He was tenth. Matt ryan was night matt. Stafford was eleven. Like he's in the land of quarterbacks that we're not quite sure what to make of at this point in their careers and i'd go to sporting news that also had a ranking and they had Baker mayfield as thirteenth behind. Both joe borough and lamar jackson. If you're the quarterback of the future for a team that has super bowl aspirations you damn well better be the best quarterback in the division as of right now that categorically cannot be said about baker may listen. I hope i didn't make it sound like baker mayfield's the best quarterback in the not without flaws said going to be on it betting on him to win. Mvp at odds that were favorable. They've now come. My way that being said baker did cut his interceptions last year. He cut his sacks he still needs to improve under pressure. Four interceptions under pressure one of the numbers in the league. It would know the book on baker but as lavar said the offensive line is there. I hope i'm not getting cleveland. Fans too excited. But this brown's team is absolutely loaded dental jeremiah. My podcast she said this is one of the five best rosters in the nfl. And again you know. You mentioned quarterbacks. Why haven't they over a huge deal. Josh ellen got the bills to the afc title game. They backed up the brink's and handed it to josh allen. Who was i mean. He was like third in mvp voting. I think he finished. He was up there. If you low paul baker now based on what he was. Two years ago gardner minzhu numbers. Then he's going to be like no and it gets ugly. You don't wanna from the world because you guys have said he has not quite given you the world so you're in that weird middle ground. Baker is going to get paid. But i think we know this is a run first team. They are like the play. Action is held his team operates. I think baker will get big money. I don't know if you'll get dak prescott money lavar you think he deserves dak prescott dak prescot desert dak prescott matters. Who's up. who's up when they're up and speaking of who's up when they're up quarterbacks coming up we'll tell you if russell wilson seahawks are legit super bowl contenders next on. Speak for you. All of russell wilson's issues with the seahawks. Appear to be in the rear view mirror. Seattle has a new offensive coordinator and russ sounds extremely positive heading into the season. Let's take a listen. I feel better than ever been working my tail off. My mind's more clear than ever we feel very confident what we can do. And i feel more confident in myself more than ever now. I've always felt like him the ball and let's go. Let's go to work you know. And let's play ball. So.

"All that cooking you were doing up here because boy you try to cook these numbers. And he's books on belonging top one on it. And i'll tell you i'll protect sports especially football. You always still football from me and making it a hallmark card not care about you know you got to earn what you eat al here. You eat what you kill. Baker mayfield killed enough being no top one hundred. Let me kill first point though he said oh well. There were quarterbacks that one playoff games last year so yeah you got to respect them and baker mayfield was one of them russell. Wilson didn't win a playoff game last year to show watson playoff game last year. Dak prescott didn't win a playoff game last year. I think they belong in the top one hundred. Well baker mayfield. Oh you ain't getting any just because your team great and you kinda good that ain't gonna get it now. I want to know what my resume like. Yeah i was in the top one hundred twice. I was in the top fifty twice number thirty. Eight number four damn right we and handle ceremony. They handle big reveal. They just put it out there. Okay so. I know what. I'm talking about here. Also note that baker mayfield has never been to a pro bowl. Include last year also told me to stay focused on last year pro bowl last year and this amazing year no pro no problems. No go goes. That's how i think about it right. Now let's take another pro because this is a list of a hundred players and baker mayfield. Shouldn't be on it because if you think about it. He's not even a top ten quarterback. If you're not a top ten quarterback in their relatively twenty two positions on the football field offense and defense. You do the math and tell me of baker mayfield. She'll be top. One hundred. And i had to do a little research here and i came up with the understanding that there are two hundred and sixty five active players. That are pro bowlers. Y'all try to tell me that baker mayfield should be in the top one hundred when he's not even one of those guys the way i look at the club. Is everybody back. masha everybody cleared. Okay pro bowlers. Y'all come in just way coming in my club right now. Baker mayfield number two sixty six to sellers. Yeah man i can't honor it. I can't honor it. I can't other team. I should know when you look at the reason why this list was created. It was the best players in the top one hundred players in the game. Like best impact. That's all that's not top. That's not team. Helped me be who i am. I get it. I get it. It's a feel good. The cleveland browns made the playoffs. And we're not taking anything away from them but let's not make it seem and appear at show that if we were to take baker mayfield away from the cleveland browns. Oh my gosh. This team is no longer playoff team. None of us believe that we still do that. They are playoff. And so how can you be. How can you be issues. I can unplug you k. It really doesn't matter if someone in your lots chaos where. I struggle with baker mayfield. I it's about the impact of value. In what you bring to the table yes you can compare those. Staten and make them look good. When you take lamar jackson away from that baltimore ravens quarterback position completely different team period. He has impacted this game in ways that we have not seen my goodness as baker that unanimous league is what we won't do. Here's what we won't do. We won't be lame. Baker mayfield the first two years of his career and he had a soft more struggle in his freshman year. We actually did. And then all of a sudden they go. Eleven five bakers replaceable. I mean anybody can do that. Nobody's done this one thousand nine hundred eight bernie. Kosar was the last quarterback of real significant football competence when it came to winning and losing in that organization. Anybody can just do it. Manziel can do it. Brady quinn conduit cole. Mccoy conduit robert. Griffen could do it. Brennan weaned could do tim. Couch couldn't do it so not anybody can. Just go out there and do it. So we're not gonna act like baker mayfield. You can just exchange him for anybody else. Baker mayfield has proven to be irreplaceable. Why because everybody who came before him could not accomplish what baker mayfield his done. Baker has a winning record as a starting quarterback for the cleveland. Browns did heisman winner. Tim that heisman winner. Japan's guy called court note did heisman. Contender robert griffin. Nope so baker replaceable. Now also we keep in mind. The players voted on this show. I vote sailing. Boating greg vote. The players voted so maybe they realize what. I realize what you all do. Not baker is actually better and more deserving of credit than people like you and marcellus are willing to give him. But i'm not gonna act like baker's irreplaceable. Anybody could do it because it hadn't been done since one thousand nine hundred ninety four. It's being going to the playoffs and winning a playoff game. You give me a small sample size. And not one of those dues would even been on. Anybody's is yeah. Yeah give me twenty seconds. It's a small sample size. How many decades love jamie quarterbacks names and two thousand players that are active right now competing for this list. I don't wanna hear about the list of cleveland. Quarterbacks that have failed. Nfl top one hundred of two thousand active talk ten harbours not even top ten. I wanna go there. But you said you gotta be topped. Show position to make the list. No one quarterback doesn't harbor any tentative position. We argument yeah. I think. I think he just top team. But i'll make that argument later. But you're trying to distract and you're trying to determine because you don't have this argument. I know those players. They're so busy clean football. And i'm not gonna sound like a typical fan but then when they get dumber football sometimes they want unplug and they don't do the deep analysis that we do. I've been in a room before. We voted for pro bowls. And we said. I and everybody just say their alley. Yeah of course and then. We started getting down to tier to anybody seeing him anybody. No i heard him or hurt him or he gets the vote. I'm not trying to really typecast with players do votes. Well let's just say they don't do the deepest analysis all the time because if they did they realized that baker mayfield has a lower. Win percentage been cow bowler and mr bisky. Worst completion percentage is in jay cutler. Fewer passing yards then. Blake bortles in nick. Lower pass gardner mitsu mania. That don't sound like top one hundred to me. But i'm doing my job and doing their job ball out of control this wall. Vip section table at the club with somebody who paid a way to get here or who went cool enough to be my section like you just can't be hovering around me because your team is good. All right we'll bring teeth but we're talking about one person. Baker mayfield does not qualify to beat at one person. Do has the most interceptions in the league tie for the top spot since he's been a quarterback up just keeping it one hundred if we can't keep the top one hun- at one hundred. What the hell we going to do. Sports because baker mayfield not yet name value of course worth to a franchise nacho yet. But i'm just talking about a lot of two thousand two deuce start. Drafting picking baker mayfield number. Seventy one moma set of d. lineman. I'm on my twelve guard. I'm on my fifteenth tackle. Before i start talking about baker mayfield guards before. Do not to god's way give you. I'll give you this. I'm not gonna disrespect. Because i like what baker mayfield did last year. I love what he did. I'm not going to disrespect them and say you could insert anyone. Let me let me retract that statement. But he's.

"Let him go out there this year. You don't have to pay him see what he is. I mean turns out to be great. You're happy to write that check. I think it's really a good situation for everybody. Right now me i address you slick bugler. How dare you throw out there. Billion from basis scarlett johansson. What was the last one. It doesn't even matter first of all. We have to be really olympics. We have to be realistic. And what we're does. Baker mayfield are probabilities and options. It is very realistic for baker. Mayfield to be able to get a blockbuster contract. Even now. Even perceive ably with deals not being on the table. Joy taylor l. k. And here's the reason. Why look at what your boy is doing in green bay right now. There's no deals on the table. Perceivable right now for aaron rodgers. Has he been offered deals before. Yes did he turn them down. Yes ninety sammy. Waker mayfield. Aaron rodgers and their compared you watch. We watched a league in a team. Pay a quarterback that was probably not deserving of the numbers that he received an injury year. Get a contract. So yes i am comparing because it is the market now. I have learnt this. I listened to that. Do say he doesn't like being called that dude anymore. I've heard marcel is reference. This and he is right. And i have to admit this shots out to him. It's the mark kit that's going to dictate what a guy like baker mayfield is going to get paid and if he wanted to. Hey coach really really press the issue. Like what aaron rodgers is doing. We haven't heard a peep out of them. We haven't seen. I haven't seen any commercials i don't know about y'all i haven't seen any baker mayfield commercials. Baker mayfield has been somewhere in his lead cooking. And that's why. I'm cool withhold now because of the salary cap situation. Oh you wanna wait. We can wait. Let's wait unless you're going to offer me something in and around thirty five or more thirty five million a year guaranteed or more we can do. We can wait. I got one of the best. I got arguably the best offense of in football. I got a strong running backfield and oh by the way. I got dope receivers. I got i got to dope. Titans like forget about it. I'm gonna play well. So if i really wanted to press the issue and say i want to start negotiating now. That has also become a trend..

"He's going to have to prove that he can make throws from the pocket consistently because again key if we were defending Jalen hurts, what would we say all week set the edge. Collapse the pocket. You'll make it noisy for him, and if he can do that, then he'll have a really, really good NFL career. Let's go back to Baker Mayfield because earlier you said that, you know, he's replaceable. You can replace him. Kirk Cousins Case Keenum type based on Kevin Stefanski is offense coming from Minnesota. I I agree with you that I can find a. I like to call vote serviceable, non problematic quarterbacks. To help me. In a situation get to where I need to get to which those guys are, but They're not. Baker Mayfield Baker Mayfield has a lot of on the field off the field. Snap, crackle, pop energy, all of the things that you pay for outside of statistics. Why is he replaceable to you? Because Andrew Barry and Kevin Stefanski. That front office and organization has a really good football team, especially Votel beckoned, can stay helping 17 games and I said you can win with other quarterbacks. And Drew Brees, for example, is an exception to the rule. He was slow in short, obviously had a Hall of Fame career. But what did New Orleans have for a decade? Great surrounding cast? Great offensive lineman that were strung in stuff that could set a really good pocket where he could step up and I think for Baker overtime key, his physical limitations are going to show up and again if we were drafting a C quarterbacks, he's seventh or eighth. And one of the things you have to do in the front office, and it's hard I've made this mistake before is if you have a good player you can you can I meet some really good trades, though, where you when I've traded serviceable wide receivers, I think that's sort show something. Right. Um Anyway. What if I could get back to my point? Um, you better pay quarterbacks. Good money. Not great money. You can't pay Baker Mayfield $40 million Because you have so many of the good players you want to keep. If we could pay bigger 28 $30 million. Great because they only know I could keep, But I've been so all right, Mike, I don't want you cannot Decide not to pay Baker Mayfield. What the market says I you mess around and he's not enough. Jesus, help! You can't do that. Away, Mike. You taking him from the market to way below the mark? You just can't do it. He's a guy who it within the system is extremely good. We just saw Ryan 10 of you get paid based on a system. That is good for him. You can't do that, Mike. I hate to cut you off and not let you respond, But we're right up against it. And I appreciate you as always, my friend. Thank you so much. Having a beautiful wonderful for just a song. That's what his name is on the show, Man. We can't stop it. Might we appreciate you have a great fourth brother? Thank you. Look, that's a brilliant skill by you Take it right up to there and then you can't really You can't respond at all. This is it's charming, and it's perfect. But I do see your point. I think you're right like the problem is, if you aren't going to pay Baker, somebody is like he's not going to take a deal for less. I mean, he's going to sit there and say franchise be or I'll go somewhere else. And realistically, that's the that is. The thing about the quarterback position is somebody will pay him. All right. We'll get more into that in a second, but coming up on the books about to say This buds for someone else. That's next K. J Z on ESPN Radio and ESPN News. It's time for some straight talk. We've all been there. You have some real work to do. But the free WiFi where.
