    I Like Baker but he looks overwhelmed often. NFL offense is much different than Shotgun Air Raid style. Also teams had the summer to figure him and Browns offense out.

        The irony is that Max won't call Baker overrated yet because it's too early, but he is comfortable saying Zion Williamson is already a superstar without playing a regular season game. Hypocrite.

          The difference from last year is that they have film on him now and see what he can and can't do and exploits it whenever they play him. He is s number overall pick playing like a career backup and 3 of the other quarterbacks in that draft is balling or getting better game by game. He is regressing because he is a college quarterback.

            What talent does baker have in the NFL? It's not throwing or running.

              But Baker did shake his hand, why did Richard Sherman lie?

                  I dont listen to Sherman to much but he was right. NFL most talented are gonna shut Mayfield up. Respect the game, respect your brothers in NFL.

                      Baker is a scrub he overated pushed by ESPN as being good after accomplishing nothing and he a cornball.

                        Being number drafted doesn't mean you are not overrated. Does Jamarcus Russell ring a bell?

                                  Ive said he is overrsated since he was picked #1 overall in 2018! Nothing in 2019 has made me change my mind!

                                    No oline any qb is going to look bad. The oline is the most inportant postion on the field. No oline no wins .

                                      Baker Mayfield got competition with Johnny Manziel for being the most overhyped qb in nfl history.

                                        Mayfield is a 2nd year QB. The Browns are 2nd in their division behind the Ravens, a team they already beat. We lost to a great team in the 49ers.... I think we'll be ok and make the playoffs.

                                          I would like to see any quarterback stand strong in the pocket with that offensive line.San Fran,had them incapable of either run or pass blocking! As a consequence,the defense gets tired,because they are on the field to long and,then the whole thing just snowball's. But to say it was bakers fault,is just not logical. If I were the browns front office,I may be looking for some free agent offensive linemen or perhaps some trade possibilities.DEFINITELY DRAFTING THE BEST LINEMEN I COULD NEXT DRAFT. The o line,changed that game Monday night.Baker was not blocking anyone !

                                              I'm betting Baker won't get it an eventually he'll get one under the chin legally or illegally cause after all its just a 15 yrd penalty maybe a 15k fine. Then after he takes a couple of those he'll start to get it.

                                                  Max, bro, stick to boxing. You left out the part of how many of those teams Baker looked so good against were sub .500. And let's have this said, most NFL QB power rankings rated Baker over Watson. Watsons stats are better than Baker's (last years stats) except for the sacks. It seems when you reverse the sacks, Watson's stats improve, and Baker's are no existent. If I'm not mistaken Max, YOU were one of the people saying Baker was better than Watson.

He’s in over his head the scheme isn’t there, that makes me think he was running Haley’s offense last year when he took over.

I like the guy and I give him a lot of credit and I also think he doesn’tGet the credit he deserves.

The nfl has adjusted to Baker's strengths in his sophomore season... But he definitely will re-adjust... As far as overrated, no... It was all media hype, not him or the team's hype... These comments clearly shows the fans of football compared to the fans of wicked trolling...💯💯💯
