The spit for spit continues in Cleveland after ESPN analyst Rex named Ryan Baker Mayfield as "damn overvalued". Idiot. Then came Mayfield.
"Whatever," Mayfield said Wednesday via video from Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. "I mean, in the wise words of Freddie Kitchens, if you do not wear orange and brown, it does not matter, and Rex Ryan does not have any colors for a reason right now, so it's fine."
Ryan hired Mayfields Skills in a Monday segment in question.
"I do not understand," Ryan said. "I'd like to be an offensive coordinator here, I have Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Nick Chubb, and Baker Mayfield, yes, I know he's hellishly overrated … Look, I plunged into the stupid hype Say, "Oh, yes!", but not to the point where everyone says he's going to be the League's MVP … There's a man here who has only one reading, and then he'll improvise know that you're one of the slowest on the field when you start off, the ball is not coming out in time, it's staring at guys and you're not all that familiar with the whole thing. "
Mayfield's 70.3-Passer Rating ranks 40th in the NFL. Yes, 40th among 32 teams. He's among people like Luke Falk and Josh McCown. Mayfield has three touchdowns and five interceptions.
