Baker Mayfield Dominated His Interview With Colin Cowherd Today

first_imgBaker Mayfield and Colin Cowherd debate on FS1.FOX Sports radio host Colin Cowherd has been critical of quarterback Baker Mayfield for years now – and heading into this past April’s draft, he even went as far as to declare the former Oklahoma signal-caller “undraftable.” Thursday, Mayfield joined Cowherd on his radio show and quickly showed that he wouldn’t be pushed around.Mayfield, before he event sat down, made quite a statement. The former Heisman Trophy winner was wearing an “Undraftable” shirt mocking Cowherd. Mayfield, as we all know, went No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns – meaning he was quite far from being undraftable.At one point, Cowherd showed Mayfield a clip from the Ohio State game, where Mayfield ran off towards the stands in celebration following a touchdown. Cowherd tried to imply that Mayfield was acting selfishly. Mayfield wasn’t having any of it.Mayfield: “I feel like you’re going for the fact that I’m not a team guy. I’m selfish. Is that what you’re shooting at right here?”Here’s video:Baker Mayfield roasted Cowherd for trying to make him seem like a “bad teammate” after a TD ? pic.twitter.com/vdR2gZtf4M— Cameron DaSilva (@camdasilva) June 21, 2018The entire interview spanned two segments and Mayfield has been getting praised for his performance. FOX will likely release it later on Thursday.Baker Mayfield asking Colin Cowherd if he’s played football past high school might be the most important moment in modern history.— Joe Buettner (@ByJoeBuettner) June 21, 2018It remains to be seen whether Mayfield will be a successful pro. Some have compared him to Johnny Manziel – particularly because of some of his off-the-field antics. Others think he’ll be just fine. Regardless, he has quite a task in front of him – turning around an 0-16 franchise.last_img read more

Nick Mullens threw a 13-yard TD pass to Dante Pettis, but couldn’t get the ball in the end zone in the second and finished 18 of 32 for 221 yards and two interceptions.San Francisco played without linebacker Reuben Foster, whom the 49ers plan to release after the second-year pro was arrested at the team hotel in Tampa and charged with one count of domestic violence.Foster was jailed late Saturday night and released on $2,000 bond Sunday. The 2017 first-round draft pick out of Alabama will be placed on waivers officially on Monday.Winston, who sat out the first three games of the season while serving a suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, made his first start in a month.
