Mayfield may turn out great but......

More Baker Magic Reports.....

I wanted him but "there is a problem here Houston."  Read for yourself.....

There were a few things to like about Baker Mayfield during the first episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” But there was so much more to like about Jarvis Landry.

The Cleveland Browns receiver was set up by the showrunners to be the most likable character, not only because of his talent but also his persona. It’s so easy to like Landry, whose mentality upended the status quo of the Browns’ losing franchise during one of the receiver meetings.

Landry delivered an epic and exasperated speech. The veteran receiver seemed done with his position-mates taking off practices with injuries Landry seemed to think were fake.

“I don’t know what’s been going on here, but if you’re not hurting — like if your hamstring ain’t falling off the [expletive] bone, if your leg ain’t broke — you should be [expletive] practicing. That [expletive] is contagious and that [expletive] is contagious as [expletive]. And that [expletive] ain’t going to be in this room. That [expletive] has been here in the past, and the past is what it is. That [expletive] is over with here, bro.

Landy’s message comes in the same episode where the coaches make it clear: the Browns need to get tougher if they’re going to win a game in 2018, something they couldn’t do in 2017.

Landry and the coaches are on the same page. Mayfield, meanwhile, hasn’t gotten there yet.

The rookie quarterback got challenged by his coach Hue Jackson, and didn’t seem to rise to the occasion. Jackson approached Mayfield one morning at the start of practice to see when he woke up. Mayfield tried to dodge the question, but eventually explained he tends to get to the facility two hours before practice.

“You ever come in with your boy, [Tyrod Taylor],” Jackson asked.

Taylor is the veteran who Mayfield intends to beat in the quarterback competition. (During the episode, Landry touts Taylor for working tirelessly at every hour of the day by showing up first and leaving last.)

“He does his own little workouts in the morning,” Mayfield responded.

“Where’s your core workout in the morning? You start starting your career now. It’s a competition. Everything you do, baby. You know how they do it. Why not?” Jackson asked.

Mayfield walked away without a comment.

I repeat: The first-overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft was asked to work harder. And he had no answer but to walk away.

The show highlighted a nice drive by Mayfield where he demonstrated strong leadership and execution with the second team offense. But he was still running with the second team. Taylor, the man reporting to work earlier than Mayfield, was running with the No. 1 offense. Mayfield is still figuring out how to be a professional — and, frankly, an adult. That’s fair. He’s 23 years old.

Landry, meanwhile, has it figured out. He’s the hero the Browns deserve. He’s the one they so desperately need.

And people were salivating over this guy

This is exactly the type of thing that happened with Adams quotes.  People who hate on Baker will say, "see what I mean", without actually looking at what happened.

Baker is getting to the facility two hours before practice, not 10 mins and its the first week.  Tyrod is beating him, by how much we dont know.  Given the source is Hugh Jackson, who is completely clueless, its possible tyrod was there 15 mins before him.

Baker came off fine in that episode and seems like a good leader.  This was a non-event

Or more likely all the qbs on the roster are supposed to be showing up together to work out together.  A lot of nfl and college teams do that.  Baker Manziel no showing that was his big FU to the coaching staff

 

I’m gonna laugh hard when this guy is officially declared a bust in 2 years

So if what you say is true 1 of 2 things happened.

1.  Tryod told him "we are all showing up at 6 and baker showed up at 7 (or late)

2.  Tyrod didnt tell him and on day 3 of his career hes supposed to magically know what time tyrod will be there and arrive at the same time

If a lot of college and NFL teams do that, shouldnt it be coordinated?

Excuses excuses.  Vince Young did the same crap when Kerry Collins was trying to help him how’d he turn out?

I don't know.  You might not think much of Jackson but he is the head coach.  And he thought it was enough of an issue to talk to the kid, knowing it was likely to embarrass him on this stupid TV show.

From everything I've read out here the Bills are pleased with Allen and the progress he's making. McCarron is still #1 and will start the season opener.

What else would they say?

I think there was a time when the Browns were seriously considering taking Barkley #1 and hoping/expecting that Mayfield would still be there at #4. In that scenario, it's very possible that the jints take Darnold #2. It makes me almost wonder if the Jets did something smart (crazy! I know). What if the Jets got wind of that plan, and then leaked the "Mayfield won't get past the Jets at #3," articles we started to see as the draft got closer - forcing the Browns' hands if Mayfield really was their guy? 

I definitely think that the Jets got Darnold because of their interest in Mayfield. I do not think it was a smokescreen though. I think if you go back and look at all the events and timing they liked Mayfield best as they were also assuming that Darnold would 100% be taken by Cleveland. I think they liked Darnold best all along but never thought it a possibility and then when the Mayfield to Browns rumors started they did the visit and all that. If the Jets had shown interest in Rosen instead, I do think there is a chance Cleveland takes Barkley first and tries to get Mayfield fourth. I still cant believe we got Darnold. The three moves at the top of the 2018 draft could shape the next decade of the NFL. I have this feeling Barkley is not the next Adrian Peterson but the next Reggie Bush. And the Giants will be kicking themselves for the next 20 years

After watching Hard Knocks, Browns are still a mess. Starting with the Hue Jackson. When you have to say its your team and were doing it your way, you're already in trouble. He'll be gone soon enough.

Hue Jackson came off to me as maybe the weakest of all the head coaches I have seen on Hard Knocks and lets face it, the way teams are selected Hard Knocks is always at a shiiitty team so most of the head coaches suck. How do you go 1-31 and keep your job? No NFL team is that bad talent wise

Saw this gem on the Bills boards...

Everybody wants perfection from Allen, but he’s making throws that these receivers have never before seen or thought possible. They also need some time to figure out how to catch his passes. It’s possible they give up on a route because no other QB they’ve played with was able to make the throw necessary where they are on the field. Once they figure it out though, they could be dangerous. This is why he needs time with the 1s. They’ve got to figure him out too. 

I hear when Allen throws the ball it actually travels through a wormhole so the WRs give up on his passes... Understandable, I would too.

I was literally amazed watching that scene.  First of all, why is he sitting in front of everyone like he is on a podium?  The head guy can and should obviously sit at the head of the table, but he looked ridiculous in front of everyone like that.

More importantly when a respected OC, who is considered (by title) one of your top lieutenants makes a suggestion to blow it off saying "its my team.." it shows that you are an absolute abomination as a leader.

Brutal footage of Hugh, and Ill be surprised if he makes it through the year.

They filmed Tyron getting to the facility it was pitch dark outside so probably around 4 AM. Browns practice is at 2:30-3:00, so Tyrod gets there at 4 AM, Baker at 12:30, that’s kind of a big deal.

Except they're all sleeping in the same RV.  They're coming in hours apart. Not getting how the number 1 pick in the draft, a QB trying to get his career off on the right foot, can't get to the facility at the same time as the bridge QB he's bunking with.

I don't hate Baker... I WANTED THE JETS TO DRAFT BAKER!

However that doesn't mean everything he does is golden or that he is perfect or any critique of him or any player that I LIKE means I hate him or them...

Lets Go Jets!!!! :)
