  • he's under the most pressure because they expect the most of him, like there's very few players in this league that are dependent on MAWR for the to be the engine of their offense.

  • And maybe part of it is because his skill set is unique and most teams are not built.

  • Thio sustain a game plan like he forces you toe, have weekend and week out, but he is certainly under the most pressure, and I know that next to the Bangles that says four and 10, that suggests that they are a bad team.

  • But they haven't been bad in the past couple of weeks.

  • They have put up some respectable efforts in those games.

  • Their defense is played well, so I think there is a ton of pressure on Lamar to get them to the playoffs because he is their offense.

  • And we talked about this some yesterday and that you know that he doesn't have much help, let alone the injuries, even when they're healthy.

  • On offense, he doesn't have a ton of playmakers on outside.

  • You know that because Dez Bryant, who wasn't on a roster the last couple seasons, shows up and then he seems to be a key piece in their offense.

  • He scores touchdowns and back to back weeks.

  • So Lamar Jackson, to some degree, because of his own special talents, this team is built around him.

  • There's so much pressure on on him to play well for them to play well and with the injuries that they have in the secondary.

  • There, guys, they're not at full strength.

  • From Jimmy Smith, the Humphreys to Peter's.

  • They're not at full strength right now.

  • Their defense will not be a strong that normally is.

  • Lamar Jackson has a ton of pressure on him.

  • In this situation again, you're wrong.

  • And here's why.

  • I'm going to use your own arguments from our last discussion to tell you why you're wrong.

  • It's not Lamar.

  • It's actually I'm gonna use your own points.

  • It's actually Baker Mayfield, because, based on your reaction to me, saying the Browns could possibly challenge the Chiefs tells you all you need to know about what the narrative is around.

  • Baker, right?

  • It let, for instance, if Lamar doesn't make the playoffs this year, what's the narrative coming into?

  • 2021?

  • Are we going to suddenly wonder like is Lamar the guy in Baltimore.

  • Are the Ravens any good?

  • No.

  • He didn't even need to make the plans this year.

  • And next year we will go into it like OK, Lamar and the Ravens?

  • Yeah.

  • We think they're actually gonna be good if the Browns don't make the playoffs this year.

  • What's the narrative on Baker Mayfield in Cleveland?

  • What is everybody gonna be wondering about Baker next offseason?

  • Going into that season, it's like I don't know now Baker first overall pick like what has he really done?

  • Like every year, we're wondering, Is this the culture Baker?

  • Can Baker do it?

  • So to me, Baker is the guy because because people still don't feel, I think when he again.

  • When Baker is on, he is dangerous.

  • However, there have been moments that lost to the Jets.

  • I understand all the co vid protocol situations and guys being out in him, missing his top four receivers.

  • That's no excuse to lose to that Jets team.

  • I'm sorry.

  • And so Baker was extremely upset after that game, and rightfully so because he knows as a cube, regardless, if you have no weapons, you have to beat that Jets team.

  • The same goes for the Rams to.

  • But going into this, like if Baker doesn't make the playoffs, like, I just think how we look at him is completely different versus what the expectations are for Lamar and how we look at Lamar E.

  • I thought, Yeah, so I thought after yesterday that maybe you didn't like me because you yelled at me.

  • But I know that you really like me after today, because you are throwing me some softballs.

  • I appreciate this alley I disagree with.

  • I disagree with you.

  • I think that the choice has been made or Baker made his point this year.

  • He's the starting quarterback.

  • He's not as good as Lamar Jackson.

  • But what happens?

  • The reason why there's less pressure on Baker going into this weekend.

  • The Ravens are playing against the Bengals, who beat the Steelers when the Steelers are full strength, the the the Browns are playing, it's a Steelers team who is looking past this game.

  • They're not playing their best defensive players.

  • They're not playing their quarterback.

  • There's not a ton of pressure on them.

  • In this situation, the Ravens have a game that has a chance to be difficult.

  • The Bengals put up a tough game last week for the Texans, and they put up a tough game for the Steelers in the previous week.

  • The Browns are going into this situation against, and I understand the cove it difficulties and making it difficult for them to practice.

  • But they're going against a Steelers team.

  • They don't care frankly, whether they win or lose.

  • I understand, Mike Thomas said.

  • The standard is the standard, and they're going to get out there and give it their best.

  • But you can't be somebody or not.

  • If t.

  • J.

  • White and on the field whoever's replacing him, you can't be T J.

  • What you can't be.

  • Cam Heyward.

  • You can't be Marcus Pouncey.

  • If that's if you're not him, you can't be him.

  • I mean Mason Rudolph, You can't be Ben Roethlisberger.

  • So there's not a ton of pressure on Baker.

  • Mayfield, and I think the crux of our disagreement is I think both cities Denver is keeping out Denver, both cities Baltimore in Cleveland.

  • I think they have their quarterback.

  • I think that this year was about for Cleveland finding out if they have a coach and finding out if they have a quarterback.

  • They have 10 wins.

  • That is, like more than several years combined, the several last several seasons combined for them.

  • I think that they know that.

  • Baker Mayfield.

  • He's not gonna be Lamar Jackson.

  • He's not gonna be Patrick Mahomes.

  • He's not gonna be Aaron Rodgers.

  • That's fine.

  • But I think they know that he is their quarterback.

  • They know that's the fancy.

  • Is his coach?

  • Yeah, I agree with you.

  • But if you are the Browns, if you're Baker and you lose to a Steelers team that, as you say, doesn't care, they they're gonna lay down a week.

  • 17 on top of losing to the Jets last week, that is.

  • That's a totally different feeling heading into the offseason.

  • They may have won 10 games and Gay.

  • Let's be happy that the Browns won 10 games.

  • But that's not That's not the goal.

  • The goal isn't just to win 10 games.

  • Look at this roster.

  • This is a playoff roster.

  • So if they lose to the Jets and lose to the Steelers team, that is not starting a lot of their guys.

  • That's a problem.

he's under the most pressure because they expect the most of him, like there's very few players in this league that are dependent on MAWR for the to be the engine of their offense.
