Default Browns finally found their franchise QB

Baker Mayfield.

Think about how much strife the Browns have went through striking out time and time again. And before anyone says, "Well the Browns just ruin QBs" Let's look at the past few and ask what the hell any of them have ever done outside of the Browns.

Kizer
Kessler
Hogan
McCown (only had him one season and he was hurt for a bunch of it)
Campbell
Weeden
Manziel
Wallace
Hoyer
Frye
Quin.... and so and and so forth.

Browns haven't taken a QB in the top 10 since Tim Couch, who was never the same after he f*cked up his shoulder.


Baker looked and played the part. Guys on the team already love him. Has uncanny accuracy and while he doesn't have a cannon nobody will ever say the guy lacks arm strength. His footwork and mechanics are excellent.

This is a new era. I think the Browns will become a respectable football franchise as they used to be. I don't think anybody here is old enough to remember the height of the Kosar era. I was just a little kid myself so I really don't.

Could Baker finally be the guy since Bernie Kosar? I think so.

I watched all his games...hes going to bring excitement to that franchise. And the Browns will have some wins that are due to him gutting it out.

That girl wearing the jersey with all the QB names trailing down it? That ends now.

I'm all for calling it before a huge sample size if your eyes tell you this is what you see. I would caution that it was against a defense who didn't even prepare for Baker.

Tim Couch started similar in his career and is considered a bust.

Couch is always overrated by Browns fans but I'm not one of them. He was very inconsistent and injury prone. He lasted 4-5 seasons. Browns have never had a starter since then last that long.


Baker looks better, but that could be a product of today's inflated QB production. It could even be recency bias. Baker at least to me seems like he goes through his reads much quicker and throws a better ball.

It's a little early to say that the Browns have finally found their QB of the future. Sure he looks good now, and you can't blame Cleveland fans for being excited. But we've seen more than one quarterback start off hot and then struggle once defenses adjusted. RGIII won a truckload of awards during his rookie year. Six years later he's the backup in Baltimore, after not even being able to find a roster spot in 2017. Dak Prescott took the league by storm in 2016. Today he's running the most inept offense in the NFL, and people here in Dallas are openly questioning if he should be offered that big contract once his rookie deal is up.
