To be fair he’s played 10 more games than Sam has due to injuries and thrown 4 more INTs. He’s also thrown 92 TDs to Sam’s 54 and led the Browns to their first playoff win in forever. I don’t think he’s a franchise guy but we could do worse if the price is right.

Agree - heck at least we’d have a playoff winning QB on the roster.  If he sucks, then we pick top 10 next year and grab another Qb.  Gotta swing until you hit

He's the difference between Baker and Darnold.   Darnold has a lot of the tools to be a good NFL QB, but hasn't shown it outside of flashes here and there.  Baker has most of the tools a guy needs to be successful as a NFL QB, HAS shown it, proved it, but hasn't done it consistently.

Define "put it together".  What does that even mean?  Say his stats mimic his 2020 season and we win 8-10 games.  Then what?

If Baker comes here and leads this team to 10 wins that would be incredible.  We would be in the playoffs and that would be 100% increase in the amount of wins we've had the last 2 seasons.  Who WOULDN'T want that, is the question?

So we take a swing at another proven bad qb?  We already have one of those but he doesn't have a sh!tty attitude. 

This FO is so desperate that they will throw assets at any scrub qb. Baker is just as useless as Sam but here we go digging the latrine deeper. I'm so tired of this bullsh!t.

Baker doesn’t suck like Sam.  Baker probably gets us to like 7-10.  Maybe 8-9.  And then what do you do.  Extend Baker and not draft a QB?  Anyone trust what this group will do if Baker gets them to 7 or 8 wins?

Me. Are we rebuilding or recycling? They can keep their failure.

He’s injury prone, has a horrible attitude and isn’t very good. Don’t know why we’re considering it. Does anyone honestly see Baker winning a super bowl here?! What about him mentoring Corral can anyone see that either?!

Thats my entire point, trading for baker just sets up a headache down the road.

Be prepared for an extension for Baker and Rhule if they get 8 wins.

If we win 10 games (and come on I was being generous) are you comfortable giving him a 5 year deal at the going qb rate?   You want to lock yourself into Mayfield for 5 fuging years?   Lets say he says peace out I aint signing, you going to franchise tag baker effing mayfield?

Mayfield should've been out most of the season. I don't even like his attitude about his inury. He hurt his team by not riding the pine. He was injured though, make no mistake...more than 25 percent of his career.

Sounds familiar. Much like the Cam Newton situation, doesn't the coaching staff bear a fair amount of responsibility for not giving the player the hook if an injury is obviously causing an issue with playing ability?

I dont think this team trades for Baker as a long term solution. They wouldnt have invested in MC if that was the case. They are most likely attempting to get a better bridge than Darnold. As much as we all know Baker aint it, he is closer on the spectrum than SD is. 

It would take a trip to NFC championship game for Baker to be considered for an extension.
