    Talk me outta baker

    Anyway, here's the opposite for those wanting to be hyped for Mayfield: So, you can take last night either way, or just wait to see what *actually* happens and enjoy the ride.
  2. I wonder how many people in Cleveland will be late/absent from work today, with all the celebrating and hangovers

    Talk me outta baker

    To give it a sincere try (not sure what you consider obvious so I'll toss it all in): 1. The Jets had prepared with footage of Tyrod Taylor. They had very little of Baker Mayfield in the NFL and weren't focused on how the offense would look with him at the helm. Other teams *will* have that footage and will be using it extensively. 2. Mayfield (if I heard the announcers right) threw the ball into double coverage near the Jets goal line and the defenders had a chance at a pick. If that had happened the momentum would have swung and it may have been another narrow loss for the Browns. Same if a Browns players hadn't picked up the fumble after it was stripped from Baker on a hit he didn't see coming. He's still a rookie and may not always look as good vs. other teams over the rest of the season. 3. Teams sometimes rise to specific situations, like a starting QB getting hurt and an untested rookie going in as backup. Now throw in the desperation to end the losing streak during a home game. Those conditions don't last. Mayfield and the offense have to play in all conditions and circumstances, week in and week out, and we don't know how they will respond over time. 4. The Jets may be bad this year. They beat up on a bewildered Lions team in Week One, but struggled and lost vs Miami in Week Two. The Browns made them look good in the first half. How will Mayfield look/react when under pressure from better teams? After he gets rushed and banged up a bit over a full game or two? Against other defensive schemes? After Detroit, the New York media wanted to declare Sam Darnold a star, and look at how that is working out. 5. He's a prime target for the Browns curse, for those here who believe in that. (Note: Not a Bashing Baker comment, just trying to offer the reality check the OP asked for. Hard to come up with a decent list after only a half of play, but there are a few reasons to justify be cautious if that is what someone is looking for.)

    BROWNS WIN

    A little humor to go with the win.
  9. Well, I asked Sunday who would be the spark to inspire the team. Questions answered.

    Only if you feel guilty about it and worry what others will think of you.

    Is that directed at Hue? QB controversy inbound?

    BROWNS WIN

    Wait, are we sure the refs aren't calling the teams back onto the field because of some call to the refs about something reviewed elsewhere? Is this legit?
  13. Well, that second pick is definitive. Browns win... 1-1-1 Lots of people going to be showing up late to work tomorrow in Cleveland?
  14. Well, people wanted the defense to seal it up Is it time for the forums to go insane with Mayfield leading the offense back and the D stepping up to close it out?
