Baker Mayfield was a guest on the Fox pregame skit ‘Manning Hour’ with Cooper Manning and threw shade at former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson, Colin Cowherd, and the NFL
Since the season ended for the Cleveland Browns, quarterback Baker Mayfield has been making the rounds and seeing his already huge star shine even brighter. He played in a celebrity softball game and went on the Late Late Show with James Corden.
Now, he’s popped up on the ‘Manning Hour’ on the Fox Pregame show ahead of the NFC Championship Game. The skit staring Cooper Manning featured him and Mayfield baking together while sharing jabs at one another — and Baker got a few good ones in aimed at former head coach Hue Jackson, the NFL, and even Colin Cowherd.
As for the Jackson joke, when asked if Mayfield likes kitchens (an obvious reference to new head coach Freddie Kitchens) Mayfield responded by saying anything is better than Hue. Of course, he acted liked he meant to say anything is better than ‘you’ while pointing at Manning.
Other jokes included Cooper Manning congratulating on him coming second in the Rookie of the Year honors, assuming Mayfield would just lose to Lamar Jackson again. As for the Colin Cowherd jab, the two agreed that Mayfield’s first win of the season came when the quarterback went on his show and let him know how he felt about the pundit’s criticism.
Manning then called Mayfield’s biggest loss of the season being his photo shoot with a tiger. Baker responded by saying it was actually a Bengal and he owns them twice a year.
There was also a reference to the NFL fining Mayfield for a sideline celebration that is sure to draw laughs. It’s well worth the time to watch and it’s all done in good humor. It also reminds us once again that the Browns have themselves a marketable star.
