    Baker is too confident for what he’s accomplished. I don’t think he’s demonstrated he’s an elite qb but he carries himself like he is

    I Like Baker but he looks overwhelmed often. NFL offense is much different than Shotgun Air Raid style. Also teams had the summer to figure him and Browns offense out.

    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?

    They were'nt saying Baker needs to be humble last season when he dissed Hue Jackson. They called it youthful exuberance. Hypocrites!
