Blowhard Brandon Marshall Has Strong Words For 9-3 Baker Mayfield

Brandon Marshall, who had a love-hate relationship with Jay Cutler during his NFL career, had strong words to say about Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. On the “I Am Athlete” podcast that was posted Monday, Marshall unloaded on Mayfield a day after Mayfield threw four first-half touchdowns and the Browns beat the Titans 41-35.

Hue Jackson, who had a 3-36-1 record as Browns coach and was in the room as the team selected Mayfield with the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, sat down with Marshall, Chad Johnson, Fred Taylor and Channing Crowder to drink liquor and talk football and his relationship with Bake.

“I don’t know Baker. I never met Baker. I don’t like his game, I wouldn’t want to play with him,” Marshall said on the podcast. “Until you prove it to me, don’t be doing the talk… these players now, they make with the fame before the game.

“You [are] the quarterback. You [are] the man, like, I give that to you. Cool. But right now, until you prove to me that you’re a Pro Bowler, a real Pro Bowler, a real All-Pro player, win a Super Bowl or something like that… then I’m [going to] follow you.”

Cutler (who made one Pro Bowl over his career) once paid off Marshall’s gambling debt. Perhaps Baker would be the man if he paid off someone’s gambling debt. Marshall also said back in April that the Saints were done and that their window had closed. The Saints are 10-2 and on their way to home field advantage in the playoffs.

Hue made sure the podcast crew knew that his big regret with Bake was that “he didn’t personally coach him.” Instead, that job was given to Todd Haley. “I thought that was a bad decision on my part,” Jackson said.

  1. So this is where the media is these days. They put an incompetent ex-coach on the air to criticize a quarterback that Jackson nearly destroyed. Now that Mayfield has someone as a head coach that actually knows what he’s doing, he might be able to turn Mayfield into a fairly good “game managing” quarterback. We’ll see.
