Emily Mayfield is a straight savage.
A few days ago, you could count ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith among the Baker Mayfield doubters of the world. During a recent episode of First Take, Smith told co-host, Max Kellerman, how he felt about the Cleveland Browns.
“No quarterback has done less with more than Baker Mayfield.”
“I believe this team can make it to the playoffs and they can make a little noise. I just don’t believe in Baker Mayfield. That’s why I don’t view (the Browns) as Super Bowl-quality. I think that somehow, someway, (Mayfield) will mess it up because eventually, some opponent is going to say, ‘Let’s make Baker Mayfield beat us.”
On Sunday, all Mayfield did to answer his critics was throw for a season-high 334 yards with all four of his touchdown passes in the first half, and the Browns scored the first 17 points before holding on to win their fourth straight, 41-35 over the Tennessee Titans.
Following the game, Emily Mayfield reminded Stephen A. Smith of what he said.
“This aged well….”
The Browns are now 9-3 on the year.
