And they’re both correct. https://t.

Over the weekend, Baker Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy. There is no doubt that he has been the best college football player this season. But will his game

Ryan Leaf says Baker Mayfield sounds like his 1998 self. In a nutshell, Leaf is the ultimate “don’t do this” example in the NFL . Here he is on Baker Mayfield : “A good litmus test for me is always when I listen to radio interviews or TV interviews, I tend to close my eyes and just listen to the voice, and hear

The Cleveland Browns entered the 2019 season as one of the betting favorites to win the Super Bowl. This was a team that added Odell Beckham Jr. to play alongside Jarvis Landry, and Baker Mayfield was coming off a historic rookie season.

Fast forward to October, and the Browns are 2-4 with their next game against the undefeated Patriots.

Defensive struggles aside, Mayfield's issues have been the most alarming part of the Browns' rough 2019. The former Heisman Trophy winner has thrown a league-high 11 interceptions through six games to just five touchdowns. He also drew criticism for calling out the refs after he tossed three interceptions in a four-point loss to Seattle.

Browns need more from Baker Mayfield after another prime-time flop

  Browns need more from Baker Mayfield after another prime-time flop It's not too late for the Browns given the state of the AFC North, but Baker Mayfield has to lift this team after another prime-time loss.

As Leaf explained it a year ago on PFT Live, the 1998 version of himself would have ignored any Baker Mayfield IS a BUST waiting to happen. He will be taken way too high and will flame out Ryan Leaf had a very poor work ethic which is the exact opposite of Mayfield who lives, breathes football .

In his preview of the Oklahoma Sooners - Georgia Bulldogs CFB game, Shannon Sharpe explains to Skip Bayless and Joy Taylor why he believes Baker Mayfield will not be a viable quarterback in the NFL .

It's gotten to the point where NFL bust Ryan Leaf is seeing Mayfield make the same mistakes he did during his NFL career.

Leaf said in an appearance on The Rich Eisen Show:

"When things start to go bad, you put yourself out there in this form. And people can easily attack it. I have a very small sample size: 2-0 to start my NFL career. Talking a lot of smack. And then I walk into Kansas City and put up the worst football game of my existence. And I've always been this brash, arrogant kind of guy. That's the way I came back at everybody instead of just walking up in front of the camera and going, 'Oh my God. This was my fault. I'm going to do everything I can to make sure this doesn't happen again.' And hearing Baker yesterday - even though small - blame the officials for some calls is problematic for me because as a quarterback, you want to be able to stand up in front of everybody and take personal accountability."

New footage shows the Baker Mayfield-Richard Sherman handshake beef is a lie

  New footage shows the Baker Mayfield-Richard Sherman handshake beef is a lie Richard Sherman was caught lying about the Baker Mayfield handshake snub.According to a report from NFL.com, Mayfield refused to shake the hands of Sherman and DeForest Buckner when the captains from each team met in the center of the field. According to Sherman, Mayfield disrespected the game with his "bush league stuff.

Baker Mayfield isn’t going to like this comparison any better. Baker Mayfield isn’t going to like this comparison any better. Already unfavorably likened to NFL flameout Johnny Manziel, Oklahoma’ s Heisman-winning quarterback is now being tabbed as a potential bust by one of the most disastrous

He knows the signs, he knows the patterns. He ’ s taking his own experiences and he ’ s trying to predict whether other young quarterbacks are behaving Not that it will matter. As Leaf explained it a year ago on PFT Live, the 1998 version of himself would have ignored any advice the older Ryan Leaf

To be fair to Baker, he enjoyed far more NFL success than Leaf ever did. Leaf won his first two starts as a rookie before an eight-game stretch with one touchdown and 13 interceptions. Mayfield threw 27 touchdowns as a rookie. So, the on-field comparison wasn't necessarily valid here, but Leaf would like to see Mayfield take more accountability to fix his mistakes.

And that's hard to argue with after Sunday's game.
