      @Gamer Witch 1999 What really sucks is it took you a hour to think to say that.

      @Chris Redfield Wow! It's amazing they didn't pick you to be the coach and it's also a blessing because you don't have a clue about what your talking about.

    “For context, if you just spike the ball on every play, you’ll get a QBR of 39.” Ouch. That’s beyond horrible.

        I'm really proud of Johnny Manzel's younger brother Baker.

          I remember all the "experts" picked browns to win Superbowl. I was laughing then and I'm laughing now.

            I'm laughing because you look to the "experts" about what's going on on the field.

              Baker may not have played well but he shure didn't get any help droped balls an these Russal Wilson comparisons I'd say a poor man's Farve.

                My problem would be the amount of time that is spent on Baker, who has a grand total of 31 TDS in his career. And 22 Ints.
                There are young QBs who are special in the league right now, like Watson and Mahomes, and they are overlooked because the media has to put all this attention on an undeserved team and player.
                Baker has basic numbers, at best. Talk about him like you do every other QB who is basic, because we never hear about them.

                      kareem hunt isn't active aokay whatever, but baker, nick chubb and kareem hunt cant win a game alone. their 53 isn't great. they had a lot of hype and unfortunately they got an average qb, an average defense and an offence that isn't gonna out-gun the other team..

                                  mayfield is over rated, browns blew alot of money for a subpar team.

                                    Lol. Baker's pass to Calloway was not 'good' Nick. He threw it low and behind him. That pick was Baker's fault not Calloway's.

                                    I hope Super Bowl is 49ers v bills so that all the media will finally give them credit for their wins instead of always talking about the other team blowing it.

                                              The Browns are famous for letting us down, and that goes all the way back to the days of Brian Sipe.

                                                  How about them 49ers put up an AWESOME defeat and made the Browns looked like poop? BM=Browns=Poop! Trying do too much and ruined everything. Pick a game plan, study your opponents, don't be lazy. Football games don't win by talented roster. No games ever won by names on paper!

                                                    To be fair, that o-line did him no favors. I don't think Mayfield is on the level of top tier QBs but I certainly think he would be successful in he wasn't in a trash organization.

I know bout all the hype bout the Browns before the season started, but man, everybody should expect struggle from them. I know they haven't been a winning team since the '80's, they're not just trying to win, but they're trying to learn to become winners. Lay off them!!! They'll figure it out.

                                                                                    It’s still too early but I liked Josh Allen coming out the same year. Josh is really raw and he’s taking his lumps. But Josh’s raw numbers are phenomenal and if he continues to improve he might become a really good QB, maybe even great. But Josh is around 6’ 5” and 235 and Baker is what? 6 foot? Maybe 200 tops? Josh has a better chance of surviving a beating AND seeing over his line. Plus Josh had a 37 Wonderlic and I believe that Baker was 25 so Josh might be a smarter guy, and Josh doesn’t go out of his way to create enemies like Baker does. But it will take at least another year to see if I was right. Obviously Buffalo is 4-1 I think so they’re doing better than Cleveland, that’s for sure. And I think that if Josh hadn’t been knocked out during that Patriots matchup he might’ve actually pulled that upset as they were driving in the fourth quarter to gain the lead. At any rate I believe the Browns draft last year could’ve been better. I argued the Browns could’ve drafted Josh Allen AND Saquan Barkley since they had one and four in the first round. What maybe could have been — I still think that Barkley was the best player in that draft.

                                                                                      I’ve watched the Browns very little. But one thing I noticed: he simply held onto the ball too long. He was getting pummeled back there and it seemed like he never adjusted. Do your pre-snap read, take your drop, hit that back foot, and let it rip. But I’m guessing Baker’s time-to-throw (TT) number on Monday night was most likely over 3. It’s just a guess. But in the NFL “perfect” is considered 2.5. I would like to see that number though but I’ll bet I’m close.
