The Browns’ firing and hiring decisions are all ultimately framed around one thing: What’s best for Baker Mayfield? I’ve never seen one player come into a game and instill hope in a franchise the way he did that night. As Mayfield stayed on the field to do an extended interview with the NFL Network, a small group stuck around to continue the chant, occasionally switching it up and treating Mayfield like a deity. He knew what this win meant to the city. I’ve been a backup, and I’ve had to fight through some things. In Mayfield, they suddenly had a player and a leader with enough charisma and swagger — and possibly skill — to wash away a decade of well-earned cynicism.
