The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including an ESPN debate about Baker Mayfield as the starting quarterback
There was a weird take on ESPN recently where Stephen A. Smith ripped Cleveland Browns GM Andrew Berry for supporting Baker Mayfield. And for some reason, people actually listen to Stephen A., even though he thinks players are still lining up for teams that haven't been in the NFL for years.
In fact, he gets so much attention that his rant about Berry turned into a segment on the morning show 'Get Up' where they asked whether or not the Browns should continue to use Baker Mayfield as their starting quarterback.
The analysts ended the "debate" quickly as none seemed to agree with Screamin A., but still, it made some headlines.

"The analysts on “Get Up!” all seemed to agree that it’s way too soon to give up on Mayfield, with host Mike Greenberg going as far as to call it ridiculous."
Smith even said it felt like a slow news day for the boys on 'Get Up' as they were reaching for things to talk about. And this was probably their 'hot' debate of the morning. Still, not much of a debate at all.
While some are questioning him as a starter, there are others who actually see what's happening In Berea. Dan Justik looks at the staff the Browns have acquired and believes they're finally putting the right people around him to develop the former No. 1 overall pick.
"Aditi talked about the impression she got from Andrew Berry's introductory press conference, if Alex Van Pelt and Joe Woods are the right coordinators to get the Browns over the hump and if Myles Garrett getting suspended cost the Browns a shot at the playoffs."
Aditi Kinkhabwala is quickly becoming one of the more respected names in sports reporting. She's smart, has great takes, and doesn't hold back. And she's also a fan of the Browns hiring of Andrew Berry. So take that Stephen A. Smith.
All the focus is on what the Browns will do at No. 10, but they could end up with a starter at No. 41 as well. Frank Teriaca looks at a few possible names to keep an eye on as the event approaches.
