    The irony is that Max won't call Baker overrated yet because it's too early, but he is comfortable saying Zion Williamson is already a superstar without playing a regular season game. Hypocrite.

    The difference from last year is that they have film on him now and see what he can and can't do and exploits it whenever they play him. He is s number overall pick playing like a career backup and 3 of the other quarterbacks in that draft is balling or getting better game by game. He is regressing because he is a college quarterback.

    I dont listen to Sherman to much but he was right. NFL most talented are gonna shut Mayfield up. Respect the game, respect your brothers in NFL.

    Being number drafted doesn't mean you are not overrated. Does Jamarcus Russell ring a bell?

    Mayfield is a 2nd year QB. The Browns are 2nd in their division behind the Ravens, a team they already beat. We lost to a great team in the 49ers.... I think we'll be ok and make the playoffs.
