Browns Baker Mayfield ripped once again by Cowherd
Colin Cowherd rips Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. Again.
One of the greatest rivalries in sports has turned out to be between Cleveland Browns quarterback, and former first overall pick, Baker Mayfield and former ESPN personality, Colin Cowherd.
Cowherd has become a consistent critic, and sometimes even troll, of Mayfield ever since he came onto the scene in the NFL. Cowherd has gone on record criticizing the young quarterback for his playing style and his approach to the game.
Most recently, Cowherd, who now hosts “The Herd” on FS1 and Fox Sports Radio, turned a segment focused around the Teddy Bridgewater trade to the Broncos and an updated mock draft to the lack of maturity of some NFL quarterbacks like Drew Lock, Jameis Winston and, you guessed it, Baker Mayfield.
He began his segment talking about the trade before immediately going on a tangent regarding maturity in young players, quarterbacks specifically. Cowherd cited Baker’s “immaturity” as the reason the quarterback only had his fifth-year option picked up and has yet to reach an extension with the Cleveland Browns organization. He states that Drew Lock “has got a lot of Baker Mayfield [in him]” in regards to his lack of competitiveness and maturity levels.
"“The only reason you wouldn’t give Baker a contract extension is maturity” – Colin Cowherd"
Cowherd goes on to describe Mayfield as “talented but immature.” He spent about 75 seconds total over the first three minutes of a segment, which was completely unrelated, talking about how immature Baker Mayfield is.
Mayfield has shown significant growth in his play and in his personality. The leaps he has made year to year have been noticeable, as has his continuing maturation. Mayfield hasn’t addressed Cowherd’s latest attempt to belittle him or flat out troll him and the Cleveland fanbase.
His actions, or lack thereof, are really starting to show who the real immature one is in this situation.
