His mom, Gina, teared up while watching it.”"
Baker Mayfield has received some criticism for how he portrays himself, but those who follow him see he’s a genuine guy who cares about his family.

Opinion: Slow down, Browns — you’re a long way from becoming ‘the new Patriots’ — Jarrett Bell, USA Today
"Sure, the Browns are a team on the rise that deserves our attention. On a basic level, there’s nothing wrong with OBJ, Greedy (given name: Andraez), Baker Mayfield, Myles Garrett, et al., to go about their business of trying to win in the NFL with the utmost confidence.But this has become so ridiculous.Try this, Brownies: Win a playoff game."
Bell makes a point that the Browns need to win a playoff game first before talking about Super Bowls — which is why head coach Freddie Kitchens wanted these predictions toned down. Still, it’s a far cry from when they were a team trying to steal a single win in 16 games, so we will take it.
