Here’s How Oklahoma’s Offense With Jalen Hurts Compares to Baker Mayfield & Kyler Murray

Here’s How Oklahoma’s Offense With Jalen Hurts Compares to Baker Mayfield & Kyler Murray Through three games with Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma is averaging more yards per play AND more explosive plays than they did with their pair of Heisman winners. 

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is in a bit of a sophomore slump. “Absolutely, I bought into the dang hype,” Ryan added. “ … What’s he doing right? scrutinized for Cleveland’s problems with penalties and play-calling, especially an unsuccessful draw play on fourth and nine against the Rams.

Baker Mayfield and Freddie Kitchens have a lot to figure out. In Kitchens’s third game, he called a draw play on fourth and 9. The offensive creativity he brought as an interim coordinator last season has vanished. Had Baker Mayfield done enough to earn the attention paid to him?


Good coaches protect their players. Browns coach Freddie Kitchens apparently provided a safety net for quarterback Baker Mayfield after Sunday night’s loss to the Rams.

As explained by Chris Simms earlier this week on his Unbuttoned podcast, the much-criticized decision to run a draw play on fourth and nine in the fourth quarter possibly was made not by Kitchens but by Mayfield.

Simms spotted the evidence while studying the game film.

Saturday night, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield is expected to take home the 2017 Heisman Trophy over Stanford’s Bryce Love and Louisville’s Lamar Jackson. Thanks to a Big 12 rule, Mayfield would also lose a year of eligibility for transferring within the conference, unless Texas Tech

“As soon as the ball’s snapped, Freddie Kitchens looks and just stares at Baker Mayfield. Looks downfield to see the guy got two yards, right? And then looks back at Baker Mayfield like, with the arms out, like, ‘What are you doing?'”

While Kitchens may have been lamenting the execution of the play, the more reasonable interpretation, given the pre-snap activities, seems to be that Mayfield changed whatever play Kitchens had called, dialing up the ill-fated draw play instead.

Simms also thinks it was a bad decision because a draw wasn’t going to work against the specific defensive alignment. Linebackers were present on the side of the defense that the run attacked. The goal in a situation like that is to find a gap in the defense created by efforts to rush the passer.

In 2013, Baker Mayfield walked on at Texas Tech and ascended rapidly. Mayfield was a historic recruiting miss by almost the entire country. When Mayfield did get back on the field, he didn’t know “how short the leash would be.” He started the last few games of the regular season, both losses.

Since it was an obvious passing situation, the concept made sense. The decision to send a running back where defenders were, not where they weren’t, didn’t.

“Before we all jump on Freddie Kitchens,” Simms said, “I’m pretty sure that Baker Mayfield would be the one to blame on that play.”

If that’s the case, Kitchens surely scored points with his young quarterback for not throwing him under the bus. Some may say that Mayfield should have piped up and taken responsibility for the decision, given the criticism that was being dumped on Kitchens.

Here’s what Mayfield said about the play after the game: “I know what you guys are going to try to do is blame the play calling, but that is why I said execution is the most important thing. Whatever we have called, we have to do our job.”

Then, when Mayfield was asked whether he had anything to add about the play on Wednesday, he said, “No, it was just trusting our guys to make a play.”

Baker Mayfield “won’t apologize for being me”

  Baker Mayfield “won’t apologize for being me” Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has a reputation for speaking his mind. He’ll continue to do it. Mayfield tells Mike Tirico of NBC’s Football Night in America that Mayfield has not considered being less candid than he was in college.“No,” Mayfield said. “I think that’s what catches people off guard. I’m not going to apologize for being me. I truly do pride myself on being completely transparent and honest about how I feel.”“There’s almost a quarterback handbook,” Tirico replied. “‘Don’t give anybody anything bad to put up on their bulletin board.’ You don’t subscribe to that handbook.

Execution aside, responsibility for calling the draw play remains unclear. Whatever the explanation, the play didn’t work. But it makes sense to pay even closer attention to the sausage-making process in Cleveland when key moments arrive. From Kitchens admitting that he’s new at this to the possibility that Mayfield opted to change the play that Kitchens called, decisions like that make the difference between wins and losses and, ultimately, playoffs or no playoffs.
