  1. Whats up with Baker

    I think it is mostly just their disposition. Some people are just like that, we have some here that seem to feed on negativity. Maybe it doesn't follow them in all aspects of life and maybe it does. I know I've been a fan a long time and been through things (1995) that most will never have to face and I'm not negative. I can see the negatives and know they are there and I get mentioning them once or hearing it once but that is plenty, I don't see the desire to continue to wallow in it. I guess some people feed off of it but that seems like a sad existence to me.

    You can but you pretty much have to be a mental midget to think a 6' QB can't succeed in today's NFL though.
  3. Whats up with Baker

    Yeah and this might be a final straw kind of thing which I get. Hasn't he always been a Steelers fan? He certainly doesn't seem to like the Browns and the feeling is mutual so I don't understand why they have been connected for so long.
  4. Whats up with Baker

    While it is funny this happened to Grossi the dictionary defines midget as an unusually or extremely small person. Obviously groups have spoke on behalf of little people that they don't like the word, I think mostly because of sideshow stuff from the past, but I don't think using that word is in the same stratosphere as some other words. That word is used here all of the time to describe short quarterbacks and I'm pretty sure it isn't filtered out. It is used in other aspects to describe small things like midget race cars So while he should have known better this isn't a career killer type thing at least in my opinion. Also, they apologized to Baker but I don't know if they were saying that it was an insult to him to be categorized as something he isn't (probably shouldn't apologize for that) or that they believe Baker prefers the term little person to midget when speaking of him.

  6. I went with average LB but if we lose Kirksey and Schobert we are probably easily the worst in the league. I went below average O-Line. Tretter and Bitonio are both between above average and good and the other 60% of our line doesn't currently exist, at least in my mind. I went above average at QB. Still trust Baker more than the starter for most of the teams but he can make his way to top notch with a good showing in '20.
  7. I think they were just trying to be respectful. It was cringy but aren't all open caskets cringy? I think so.
  8. Whats up with Baker

    I believe he will be a future MVP candidate. Hopefully this year. It seems very easy to succeed on offense with him as the QB and I was quite disappointed in what we did as a team last year on offense between play calling and and lack of effort in the passing game and lack of ability on the line. Mayfield obviously took a step back too but some if not much of that was being put in a position to fail with 3 awful offensive linemen and a scheme that requires wide receivers to get open and no having any that did that even close to a regular basis when that rare time that the line held up. A lot of quit after the routes besides Landry. Then there was a hodgepodge of receivers after the top 2 and the #1 not close to 100% most of the year and had serious trouble with getting separation, no burst, issues catching and winning one on ones which we all thought was going to make the offense go to the next level. Hopefully he looks like a new player next year... assuming he is here.
  9. Browns T Greg Robinson in custody after drug possession arrest

    Yeah my initial ignorant guess was 2 years but who knows maybe he gets lucky. I don't know what has changed since Morris was busted maybe he is looking at much more or similar but I don't think it will be anything close the the 20 year maximum that has been thrown out.
  10. Whats up with Baker

    I'm happy with Mayfield because he is the most talented QB we have had in my lifetime and he isn't a spaz. Sure, that isn't everything it takes to be great but it's way more than we have had since most of the people here have been alive. I'll be optimistic because while he has flaws everything is fixable. He doesn't make errant throws into the ground or 10 yards out of bounds even if he has immediate pressure. He takes some chances that aren't smart at times trying to get something going or trying to get his team back in the game but hopefully there will be a time where our offense clicks and we don't fall behind so often. We're all in wait and see mode but he has the ability and QB mentality to be successful. It doesn't guarantee anything but if I were a betting man, and maybe I am, my money is on him having a successful career. I see no reason for me to make up stuff to try to discredit him like some do. I'll even call those people out who say he isn't working hard enough, doesn't care enough, or refuses coaching because there are no indications that any of that is true. Those are conclusions people come to on their own because they didn't like him as a draft pick and a part of them really wants to be right and while we all root for him and the Browns the "I told you so" remains in their heads and they remind us whenever they can.
  11. Whats up with Baker

    A lot of words back at you.
  12. Whats up with Baker

    Yeah you're still drawing conclusions from partial statements that support your feelings. He certainly doesn't need help with a 3 step drop, he is in the NFL. His point was he doesn't need to start from the ground up as it would be a waste of time. So no, he doesn't need a QB tutor. As he stated he has people to help him with the specifics of the position along with coaches who the Browns give him to help out.
  13. Whats up with Baker

    The very next sentence from the one you posted says: “I do not need somebody to teach me how to do a three-step drop,” Mayfield said. “I can look at film and be critical of myself. Throughout this process, I have had people help me out along the way and try and take things from different people. Anytime I am around somebody, I ask questions. Do not act like I have it all figured out. So... you obviously read that statement and still said " he basically said that he "has it all figured out on his own". Hmmmmmm.... Weird that you only hear part of what he says. This is why I don't like politics they do the exact same thing. The agenda stuff is annoying. Could he benefit from a private tutor? Maybe, it certainly couldn't hurt. Is it necessary with his connections? Probably not. But hey, if it helps your agenda to draw conclusions from a snip-it and that makes you feel better have at it. You probably will get called out on it from time to time though, especially if you provide the link.
  14. Browns T Greg Robinson in custody after drug possession arrest

    Bam Morris had like 220 lbs of marijuana and cocaine and I think he did 30 months, I don't think it will be anything close to 20 years probably closer to 20 months. Edit: Actually, according to Wikipedia: Police testified that they found 100 kilograms of marijuana and one gram of cocaine in his car during a traffic stop. He was fined $69,000 and sentenced to 420 hours of community service and six years' probation. He did get busted again a few years later, that is when he served 30 months. But if there is precedence, as both were in Texas, he may not go to prison at all. Who knew.
  15. NFL To Revamp Playoffs; Add 7th Team with Only 1 1st Round Bye

    I don't like it. I don't think a one team bye is fair at all. Schedules aren't even so you may just be rewarding the division winner with the easiest schedule by giving them the easiest playoff schedule. I say keep it the same. If you do change, go extreme. 12 teams per conference get in and all division winners get byes. Wildcard round is 8 wildcard teams and the winners then play the divisional champs. One extra week of playoffs instead of the extra regular season game and 16 teams will host a playoff game each year.
