Baker Mayfield on Daniel Jones Pick

armstead98 : 8/20/2019 8:30 am
“I cannot believe the Giants took Daniel Jones. Blows my mind…Some people overthink it [what makes a good quarterback]. That’s where they go wrong. They forget you’ve gotta win.”

From the GQ article.

Exactly, the only people that Mayfield is concerned with are the ones that wear Brown. It isn't like we are a divisional rival and he is creating bulletin board material for the end of time.

“I try not to listen too much to what is said. My focus is here in the building. That stuff doesn’t motivate me. I think I am a very passionate person. I don’t always show it, but I am a passionate person,” Jones said. “Going back to Duke. . . I wish we did win more games. I played a big part in that and I take responsibility for that. Our goal was always to win ACC Championships and go to big bowl games, and we weren’t able to do that. I don’t look back on that without [feeling] responsibility.

“But I do think [I am a winner]. . . I’m a competitor.”


“I think he’s a great player. He can throw it and I enjoy watching him play,” Jones said of Mayfield.

Well what do you mean by "real repercussions"? Colin Cowherd just went on a 5 minute rant about it, no mention of the Giants at all. If you search "baker mayfield" on Twitter right now, all of the national guys are talking about it, and there are very active and vocal comments from fans of all teams there....

So I don't know what you mean by "real repercussions".... It's a bad look. That's the only repercussion, and people have taken notice.

There was a story that was printed that was posted on Reddit that I thought was funny. He was in NC with his sister at a deli right after the draft and ESPN was on the tv doing something about the Knicks and the owner was talking about Kristaps.

Intrigued he asked if the guy was a fan of other New York Teams. He gets all animated and is like don't even get me started on the Giants! Daniel Jones WTF! Daniel Jones replies yeh I can't believe they did that. His sister asked him why he didn't say anything and he said something along the lines of it wasn't worth my time or I'll have time to win him over. I wish I could find the article!

This Guy is a tremendous fucking asshole. You need to be a lot more like Eli demeanor-wise to win in the nfl. This Guy is a prick who seems to be reading every story written about him-hell never last unless he changes that. To say something like that about a QB you didn’t know anything about is pretty damn obnoxious.

Also to the previous poster-I think the Browns are butthurt, especially Beckham, to keep talking about the Giants as much as they do.

You know what I think's hilarious?

Calling a draft pick dumb or mind-blowing before you see how it pans out.

But that's where we're at as a society today. An unbelievable amount of morons rabble-rabbling away, Mayfield being one of them.

It will make Jones being good all the sweeter. Because he clearly is, and anyone who watched him at Duke knows that.

Cowherd has a stick up his ass about Baker. Why anyone listens to him at all is ponderous, his constant comparing everything to corporate America and business is fucking tedious. He deifies corporations for some weird reason.
Part of me wishes Baker was the Giants QB and Trevor Bauer

You really think this shouldn't get any play here? That baffles me. This is a Giants fan site, in case some of you need a reminder. Not a court of law.

I agree that it's stupid. And no one is saying Mayfield isn't stupid for doing it himself. But the level of butthurt it appears that BBI'ers are experiencing is truly comical. Half the guys in this threat probably hated the pick and said the same shit out loud or in their heads (including myself, I hate to admit), but now that he's our QB and has shown enough flashes during these two games, they're all now his defenders.

Stupid responses to stupid comments are still stupid, no matter what.

I like Mayfield as a player, but he's definitely a tool. No question about it. And I've grown to really like the Jones pick since the draft. But that doesn't mean, the responses on this insignificant nonsense drama isn't comical and stupid.

talk about other players like that, especially at your own position. No ifs, ands, buts, or equivocation needed. The star athletes today are of a younger generation that doesn't always care about maintaining the same standards of professionalism that others have valued. It's very unfortunate.

I cannot believe someone would make these comments. Baker is just an idiot. He is talented but has been prematurely put into the top 10 QBs lists by many. He needs to STFU but history shows he is incapable of this. This is a guy that was a walk on at one point should he needs to relax. The browns care more about the Giants than the browns

FatMan in Charlotte : 8/20/2019 4:23 pm : link
"You know, I cannot believe the Browns took Baker first overall in the draft. I mean, this was a guy who couldn't beat out Davis Webb to play the position. Some people overthink it. You don't really want a douchenozzle as the face of the franchise."

Once again you're twisting my words. I said if Mayfield continues bashing players from other teams he will be hated by fans of players of other teams. Obviously just criticizing Jones won't have much of an impact besides from Giants fans. Now if he continues criticizing others he will quickly find himself as one of the more hated players in the league.

This is just another distraction for the Browns who are beginning to behave like they have already won something.

did mayfield say anything outrageous? no, not really. i'm not gonna get my panties in a bunch over anything he [or any player] says. i can also separate my feelings about a player and what they do on the field--that doesn't mean i don't get any extra enjoyment over seeing something like dave brown trucking deion sanders at the goal line to score.

i'm glad that the cleveland browns are going to be good again--at least, that is how it looks. i am rooting for them--have an old time soft spot for them because of the leroy kelly and paul warfield days. and i hope that our recent trades with them works out great for both of us.

It wouldn't, but at least he'd have the gravitas to speak.
