    Baker Mayfield - The Man, The Myth, The Legend

    It’s a far more apples to apples comparison than your repeated comparisons of “what could Mahomes have done with OU talent? He would have won multiple Heismans blah blah blah...”. But when you can see exactly what Baker could do with Tech talent compared to Mahomes, then it’s apples to oranges...

    Baker Mayfield - The Man, The Myth, The Legend

    Correct. Mahomes landed on an outstanding team & so far hasn’t screwed it up. Good on him. We’ll see how the rest of the season plays out for the Chiefs. But KC thus far really hasn’t done much. Last night was a huge game & Mahomes had 5 turnovers in a losing cause. Baker has the ability...

    Baker Mayfield - The Man, The Myth, The Legend

    Oh, and I replied to a specific post of yours. So kind of weird to tell me that wasn’t your point when it was the entire content of that specific post that I was specifically replying to. I tend to reply to specific posts rather than to topics in general. It helps both sides keep on track &...

    Baker Mayfield - The Man, The Myth, The Legend

    Awesome that you’re so certain of that so early in both of their careers. I’m not certain either way. Time will tell, but it may take 15-20 years. They both seem to be very good QBs, but in vastly different circumstances. But I am certain that I would take Baker every day over Mahomes...

    Baker’s not the only player on the team & on the field. If any players are affected, the whole team is affected.

    I’m saying the Tech HC that isn’t very good at his job.

    Baker Mayfield - The Man, The Myth, The Legend

    I like Jarvis Landry. Solid player. But he’s got a career average of 10 yards per catch, so he’s not exactly Jerry Rice, Randy Moss, Antonio Brown, etc. And for most of the year, the Browns have been leading the league in dropped passes. So no, his receiving corps has not been particularly...

    Tech had more success with Baker leading them than when Mahomes led them. That makes the comparison easier :)

    Baker Mayfield - The Man, The Myth, The Legend

    The Browns did upgrade their talent at the skill positions over the offseason. However, that’s a matter of perspective. They were historically bad the last two years. Now the talent is better than historically bad (I’d rate them around “pretty OK”). But the Offensive line is still awful &...

    Baker Mayfield - The Man, The Myth, The Legend

    Mahomes was still in high school when Baker transferred to OU. But thanks for playing. Also, fun fact: the best year Texas Tech has ever had under Coach Kingsbury, Baker Mayfield was the starting QB the majority of the year. Mahomes never took Tech to as good of a season as Baker did in...

    Baker Mayfield - The Man, The Myth, The Legend

    I think Baker will be. I don’t think Mayfield will have the weapons that Mahomes does. Mahomes inherited a team that has averaged 11 wins per season for 3 years. Baker inherited a team that has averaged 1 win per season over that time period. Baker’s got one of the worst O-lines in the NFL...
