      @Ronnie Headen the reason baker isn't overrated is because the hype placed on him is by imbeciles like you who watch Collin and Stephen A. all day his so called "over rate" is made by unimportant people like you, if you watch football and actually looked at details you would see baker firstly hasn't played a full season, he's young, he's unexperiened, and through the first 4 weeks of his 2nd season and off of his first NFL offseason he comes in with only 1 receiver that he's thrown to for even a NFL game (Higgins hurt, njoku hurt, Callaway susp, Duke Johnson traded) and then just listen to Collin he tells it just as well HE CAN'T EVEN HATE ON BAKER!! so buddy, maybe the question isn't "is baker Mayfield overrated?" Maybe the real question you should be asking yourself is "Am I overrating (over hyping) Baker Mayfield?"

      @Ronnie Headen see now you're spreading fake news we've never stirred a rhetoric our players have never came out boasting about how good they are or anything close that 'rhetoric' was stirred by media and rightfully so excited fans dont put words in the players mouth

    Colon you should be ashamed of yourself ,you have said everything that Rex Ryan has said about Baker Mayfield ,and now you want to try to pretend you're going to try to defend him ,Rex Ryan is absolutely right about Baker Mayfield ,he's a 3rd round draft pick ,that for some reason the owner like, and made the number one overall draft pick instead of letting him learn the game as a third-rounder where he might be able to pick up on the blitz packages and other things, and get the ball out of his hand quicker , they going to put him right in the fire as a number one overall draft pick, and now the Cleveland fans are going to have to wait another 10 years before they can get a owner that's willing to get the best person available instead of picking people with his heartstrings ora political nepotism, there's a certain race or color that sells merchandising it just totally ridiculous that this guy picked Johnny Manziel another undersized guy ,now Baker Mayfield instead of getting Lamar Jackson or Sam Donald ,somebody with some height ,and have some athletic ability to get away from these fast defense ,iBaker Mayfield is too dumb he's not smart enough to handle the pressure is apparently being the number one overall draft pick.

    I am not a Pro Colin guy but he does this prior to Baker having one of his best and most important wins as a young QB. For that I give him props!!!

    Ok man, thanks for not destroying Baker. Once in awhile it's nice that you can few the field from both sides of the ball. In that I mean not constantly blaming him or ridiculing him. Thanks for a little props!

    Should have hired a good coach and freddie stays offensive coordinater. Although with the strong defensive coordinater they have that helps. Wilks is doing a good job. Special teams coach is good so Freddie dont got to much to worry about on D and ST. Moonkin has not impressed.

  • Mikel Keith

    You guys might as well stop trying to defend Baker Mayfield, Rex Ryan is absolutely right this guy should have been a third round draft pick b,ut unfortunately the fools pick them number one overall ,and he's going to get paid because somebody like him ,he's slow he can't throw the ball downfield ,and that's the bottom line ,all the help in the world is not going to help this guy the Browns are always going to be a mediocre football team as long as this guy is the quarterback Nick Chubb is real the star of the team, that might help them win a few more games , so you Baker Mayfield apologist need to grow up , and stop trying to sell his fake swag it has no substance.

    As someone who stopped watching for a while due to Baker bashing, I’m happy to see Cowherd has regained sanity. I don’t agree with what he said about OBJ, but I can respect that opinion. What I couldn’t respect was endless Baker bashing because the narratives demand it. OBJ can be difficult, and Baker is very prideful. I always wanted to like Cowherd because I felt like he was calling it how he saw it. Now I’m starting to again. Good on ya Colin

      Could not agree more. I stopped watching him because when the browns came up it was bashing them, bashing Baker, bashing the fans. It got old fast, and I had been watching him for a few years. When I saw this I had to watch it. I can take him being objective. But the constant bashing and ridicule was to much. Obj is a diva though. I like him but, at any moment he could throw a fit, or act childish. That only can stunt Bakers growth. Hopefully it will not happen, but many more games like last week and OBJ will go off.

    This was a backhanded defense of Baker at best. He doesn't just hate Baker. He hates you all, Cleveland. I'm surprised he didn't mention the fair weather fan base, or the loss of manufacturing jobs in the rust belt, because he threw the "Kitchens" sink at everyone else.

    Who else is here after the Ravens game?

    LMAO Colin Coward...ride your lighting until it jolts you just like it has, You and Sharpe (at least he scammed a ring off his brothers mojo & Elway, Davis, Shannahan's success) are nothing but wanna be's in suits trying to get attention and get your pay checks.(Good for you both BTW, get what you can get, free country...I get that-everyone has bills to pay so get your money-fair enough) BUT if you want to grow some balls then reach out to me and we can see who is right since you claim Browns/Baker will never make the playoffs because they are overrated. I'll even be nice and give you even odds for Browns making playoffs at 1:1 at $500k. Put your $ were your mouth is if you are so much smarter than me and confident. If not then back off to your little hiding closet and stay scared.

    I mean Colin himself had Brady Poppinga on who literally said how they even stopped feeding into the defensive side of the ball after they won the Super Bowl. Gotta be careful not to lay all that on Rodgers's doorstep.

    The Eagles were the #1 seed, and went to the SB with T.O., even though he missed a few games from injury. He came back and balled out in the SB. The Eagles didnt even make the playoffs the next season. Also, the 49ers and Cowboys got worse after T.O. left. Im so sick of this narrative that T.O. was a bad teammate

    Typical Herd always trying to be a shock jock to boost ratings no matter how wrong he is. I guess it works I’m here after all. But please. Baker was propped up to be the savior of the browns and he hasn’t been. Maybe he will get there but until then of course he’s over rated. Anyone is. It’s just math. If someone said the dolphins were going to win the super bowl they would be over rated. This is just too easy. Get out of here Colin.
