Chad Pennington mentoring Mayfield.

Recommended Posts

Pennington was like a Rich Gannon type QB before he hurt his throwing shoulder.

After that he was never the same. Lacked arm strength that he didnt have a whole lot of to start with.

I love it.  Any time a true professional wants to try and teach a young man about the game and nuances of being a professional athlete, I think it's a good thing.  Something I love about Baker Mayfield is the "chip" on his shoulder, and how it drives him to WORK harder.  It doesn't drive him to be a jerk, although that certainly can happen depending on your viewpoint.  It drives him to study more, to practice harder, to LEARN as much as he can.  Baker is a worker, and for that I'm grateful.  He's not going to come into the practice facility hungover (I'd be SHOCKED anyway).  He's not going to be "entitled", especially being a walk-on starter...twice.  If someone like Chad wants to work with the guy, I'm all for it.
