Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield has been known for his arrogant attitude since entering the NFL.
After a sophomore season in which threw for 22 touchdowns and 21 interceptions, Mayfield decided to scale back and focus on humbling himself in the offseason.
Thus far on the year, the Browns are off to one their best starts in franchise history.
Sitting at 3-1, they are currently in third place in the AFC North, but are playing good football and, that is all that matters.
But yet, Baker still finds himself in the midst of criticism while the team has strung along three consecutive wins.
The storyline for last year was that in the offseason, he wasn’t focused on football as he shot numerous commercials with Progressive.
This year, it is that Baker is a “game manager”, and that the Browns must first establish the run and control the pace, if they are going to be able to win games.
Well, as always, Baker responded.
Baker Mayfield Trolls Media In His Weekly Presser

While some may love Baker for “being Baker” and “never changing”, this was the problem that many have had towards him since entering the league.
After all, the media has a right to be critical of him as he has done nothing with a Browns team that is filled with young and exciting potential.
During the game on Sunday, numerous NFL “people” were tweeting questioning the ability of Baker to lead this team to the playoffs this year.
Browns got the potential to be great this year … It’s up to baker mayfield in order for it to happen…

But, he also has people who believe in him despite only throwing for 169 yards in a game in which the Browns scored 49 points.

Regardless of the many takes on Baker Mayfield, he needs to learn to ignore the noise.
Many of the problems and in fact, most of the haters that Mayfield has encountered in his early NFL career, have been a result of his own behavior.
Mayfield Needs To Ignore The Noise
Baker Mayfield needs to remain in the present.
It seems that Baker Mayfield finally has a coach in Kevin Stefanski that understands what kind of offense will produce positive results for him.
Baker has yet to have a game where he can prove he can carry his team with his arm.
As far as he should be concerned, that isn’t an issue as long as the team is winning.
Focus on one of the best defenses in the NFL in the Colts.
The more he wins, the quieter the haters will be.
