Baker Mayfield takes shot at Rex Ryan over ‘overrated’ criticism
It’s fair to say that Baker Mayfield isn’t taking criticism from Rex Ryan lying down.
The Cleveland Browns’ quarterback was dismissive after Ryan dubbed him “overrated as hell,” stating that his opinion doesn’t matter because he’s not with the Cleveland Browns. He took a rather clear shot at the ex-NFL coach as well, saying there was “a reason” Ryan didn’t have a job right now.
Browns QB Baker Mayfield on Rex Ryan's criticism: "In the wise words of Freddie Kitchens, if you don't wear orange and brown, you don't matter. And Rex Ryan doesn't have any colors right now for a reason."

Ryan last coached in 2016 and hasn’t posted a record above .500 as a head coach since 2010, which is also the last time he led a team to the playoffs. You better believe Mayfield knows that, too. He’s not at all afraid to take on members of the media he feels are being unfair, and while he wasn’t as harsh to Ryan as he has been on another talking head, he wasn’t kind, either.
