The majority of the media was slobbering over Baker Mayfield’s NFL preseason debut against the Giants where he threw for over 200 yards and 2 TD’s. Colin wasn’t as impressed as most.
He thought Mayfield looked fine, but he wasn’t wowed over his performance, and thinks that the bar for Mayfield should be higher because he was the #1 overall pick in the draft. Colin has always said Baker will win games in the NFL, but he still thinks Sam Darnold has a higher ceiling and better physical tools and size. Last night, he was more impressed with Tyrod Taylor, who led an impressive scoring drive against New York’s first team defense, than Mayfield.
Here’s Colin to explain why he wasn’t blown away by Baker’s debut like everyone else.
