Default Baker Mayfield 的 cannot believe the Giants took Daniel Jones. Blows my mind."

Mayfield - 7 TD 12 INT 57.6% Completion 67.8 QB rating
Jones - 12 TD 7 INT 62.5% Completion 84.4 QB Rating

Giants are 2 - 6 and Browns are 2 - 5

Looks bad and Baker is known for shit talking but that particular quote is taken out of context...IIRC it was for GQ magazine and in the article Baker also said it blew his mind that he went #1 overall.

People took one snippet from the article and ran with it.


Also...to be fair, that pick blew lots of minds. Giants making many eat crow, so far. Still early though.

Baker has to know better though, he's in every 2nd commercial on Sundays yet he's one of the worst QBs in the league. I still think he's going to be a good QB with a long playing career. They have a relatively soft schedule for the remainder of the season so he better step up.

Baker is prone to putting his foot in his mouth, but this was particularly out of context. First of all, the comment was made on the day of the draft in passing and the reporter didn't choose to run it until right before the season started, as if he were being critical of Jones out of the blue. He was expressing an opinion that most football people were repeating at the time.

Should he have commented on it with a reporter around? Probably not. But the fact that people are still running with it is kind of disingenuous. Wasn't a big deal when he said it and it is a non-issue all these months later.

He apologized anyway and then said this...

Quote:
“This is not what I said….just so we’re clear,” Mayfield wrote. “I also said I was surprised I got drafted number one. Then was talking about the flaws in evaluating QB’s. Where I brought up winning being important. Reporters and media will do anything to come up with a click bait story. Heard nothing but good things and wish nothing but the best for Daniel.”

Come on, man. What more can he say to make this go away?

Stop using completion % as a telling number.
