Jarvis Landry: Tyrod Taylor looked “amazing” this offseason

AP

Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry said in June that the quarterback play in Cleveland is “a lot better than what I had in Miami” and he continues to be bullish about the guys who will be throwing him the ball this season.

Landry had positive things to say about both Tyrod Taylor and first overall pick Baker Mayfield as a guest on The Rich Eisen Show on Thursday and called both of them qualified for the starting job. He noted that a decision about who starts is up to head coach Hue Jackson, who has been steadfast in saying that Taylor will get the call out of the gate.

That doesn’t sound like it conflicts with Landry’s choice for the job.

“Amazing,” Landry said of how Taylor looked this offseason. “Amazing, man. His leadership, his arm, his accuracy and he’s ready, man. He’s the starting quarterback, and I’m sure that, obviously, the decision is up to Hue and the offensive staff, and stuff like that. But I’m sure they’ve been highly impressed with he’s done through OTAs and minicamp.”

There’s been no shortage of optimism out of Cleveland about what the Browns can do this season and a 1-31 record over the last two seasons gives them nowhere to go but up. How far up they go will ultimately determine if they’ve truly turned a corner or if this is all a lot of hot air to fill the space between seasons.

  1. All fluff. He will pass for 12 TDs, and 11 picks. Mayfield will take over week 13, and promptly show that the clowns messed up again. Back to the drawing board again Browns fans.

  2. of course he does.

    next to Tannehill, everyone looks like a massive upgrade.

    Let’s see what he’s saying week 5.

  3. I’m a Browns fan and the team is definitely better, but let’s pump the brakes a bit. The schedule is a beast this year. We may play well and still only win 2-4 games out of the first 10, which is an improvement but not the end game. Let’s take it game by game.

  4. RT stats are better then Tyrod, RT never has had a decent OL like Tyrod has had. Landry of course is going to run his mouth. Wait until the games start.

  5. Count me in as a Tyrod Taylor believer. Exactly who did this guy have to throw to in Buffalo ? A below average line, Wrecks Ryan as head coach is right up there with Fisher for offensive ineptitude. I’m not saying double T is Brady or Rodgers, I just think he a legit starting QB in the NFL and in the right situation can win some NFL games for you.

  6. Wait until he throws every other pass ten yards out of bounds or ten yards over everyone’s head.

  7. Hello Jarvis. Cleveland here. Don’t get all excited. Your a newbie in these parts. All the Cleveland Browns look awesome and amazing in the off season. It’s from the first snap in the first game on we seem to have big problems.

  8. Taylor literally led the NFL in interception percentage last season and you have geniuses talking about him throwing a ton of picks. lol

  9. “Exactly who did this guy have to throw to in Buffalo ? A below average line”

    If I would have told you he had a WR core that consisted of Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin and Chris Hogan would you consider that to be at least a reasonable stable of options? Also the line wasn’t bad at all. The right side was admittedly questionable but the center and left side were pro bowlers or just below. He holds the ball too long, can’t throw with any anticipation and can’t hit a guy over the middle. No YAC yards whatsoever.

  10. This is NOT NEWS – what matters is during the regular season – the Great Gimmick in Washington looked fabulous in the offseason – and like the real Tyrod, the greatness disappeared when it mattered.

    I hope the Cleveland Dog Piles fail.

  11. LOL You don’t draft a QB at No.1/1st Round (m’boy Baker [Mayfield]) without playing him before the end of his Rookie Season.

  12. Thyroid got Rex Ryan out of the league and hopefully he will do the same for Hue Jackson.

  13. Browns would have been playoff contenders had they taken Saquon & Chubb adding to Myles Garrett, Josh Gordon, Landry, Corey Coleman, and Njoku. Instead they will wind up being mediocre at best.

  14. 1 and 31 there is only one way to go and thats up. Landry has just got a nasty attitude because the Dolphins wouldn’t pay him. Wait for things to go wrong in Cleveland, and you will hear from him, that’s for sure. Maybe he needs reminding Tannerhill didn’t throw to
    him last year. Mind the penalties at critical moments, I guess he’s so perfect.

  15. Did he just compliment TT on his accuracy ? ahahahaha. boy, having watched every game TT has started, anybody in cleveland thats excited is in for a very rude awakening. the bills were content to just cut him but amazingly they got a high draft pick. have fun seeing him attempt to hit the broad side of a barn.

  16. toldlikeitis says:

    Taylor is a game manager – one read and run or dump off passes to RBs pretty much sums up his game.
    ===================================================

    That’s what they need.

  17. There is no need to pump the brakes on this Browns team. Mr. Deshone Kizer with his 19 interceptions apparently forgot to ever hit the brakes and drove that Browns team straight into the 0-16 Lake. This is the new car we just got from the Insurance Company. It may be a piece of junk, but at least it will run and get us from point A to point B.

    Pretty easy not to throw picks when you constantly toss the rock 20 times for 150 yds. He’s a good guy but that being said, if the Bills had Tannehill at QB in the playoffs last year they beat the Jags.

  19. Silly Jarvis….Browns always look great on paper….on grass, well not so much. 0-4 start, Huey gone, Baker in, locker room split.

  20. Hey sports fans, Tannehill did not play in 2017. Landry who I consider a top five pass receiver will continue his excellent career even in Cleveland to think otherwise your not watching.

  21. How the Miami Dolphins allowed the trading/release of several all pros is the mark of a disfunctional owner and Tannebaum. I suspect their coach, Gase, leaves after this year. Cleveland, Philadelphia and the Rams should all thank Miami for strengthening their teams.

  22. Landry proved he can make circus catches from 5 to 12 yards. So far I haven’t seen him beat anybody on a deep pattern. That’s what top 5 receivers do. They make those same circus catches 25-35 yards downfield after they got passed the corner backs.Landry hasn’t done that because can’t.

  23. were Taylor that good he wouldn’t have been traded for a Coke and a bag of chips;

    he will be dead by time Baltimore and Pittsburgh get through with him;

    so will the browns, after they rush Mayfield in a year early and then fire Hue two years too late;

    once again, the browns will revert to a new five-year plan like the USSR used to do;

  24. Tyrod may look good now but I think in the long run, the Browns made a mistake passing on Darnold — although Darnold will be better off for it. I like Mayfield a lot but he had one of the best offensive minds in football coaching him for 3 years. Darnold has only really been playing QB for 3 or 4 years and he hasn’t had any real coaching in this time. Jeremy Bates should be able to fix his turnover issues and lift him to a high level. Darnold’s ability to make tight window throws, throw on the run (both to his left and right) and make plays when the pocket breaks down are unmatched in this draft class.

    It doesnt matter who your receivers are if you are going to 1- throw over their heads 2. Not throw to them if their is a defender within 5 years 3. be very happy throw dump passes.

    He is not a legit starting qb he is a great backup qb and a great leader/person. To win big games you need a qb who will throw loner passes into tight coverage, not TT.

  26. If you think Tyrod looks good on paper, you’re looking at the wrong numbers.

    True, Taylor did not have All Pro receivers to throw to in Buffalo. But, A good QB makes good receivers on the other way around. If he’s now suddenly accurate that WOULD be amazing. He was not terribly accurate in Buffalo even though the numbers say otherwise. But that’s because he would only throw safe passes to wide open receivers. He can’t or won’t throw receivers open. He did have a good (not great) O line in front of him and still took among the longest times in the NFL to get rid of the ball. Put some of the blame on the receivers, but I lost count of the number of times last year when someone would be running wide open and he either didn’t see them or wouldn’t throw them the ball. He’s the type of QB that won’t lose you the game, but he also won’t win many either. His record when entering the 4th Qtr down by 7 or more is abominable. Mayfield will be playing by midseason.

  28. TT’s career stats:

    2017 62.6% 2,799 yds 14 TD 4 INT 89.2 QBR
    2016 61.7% 3,023 yds 17 TD 6 INT 89.7 QBR
    2015 63.7% 3,035 yds 20 TD 6 INT 99.4 QBR

    Pretty consistent over two HC’s, three OC’s and a grab bag of wide receivers. But that’s what you’re gonna get.

    Get ready for 200 yards and one touchdown a game. Hope your defense can hold through all the three-and-outs, and forget fourth quarter comebacks.

    “Oh, but wait!” you say, “they weren’t coaching him right.” Yup. They said that about CJ Spiller too, and he’s done what since he left Buffalo?

  29. Here is the thing, people are calling Taylor an inaccurate game manager. Saying he wont or can’t throw open receivers.

    Those might be fair statements. What you all are failing to understand, however, is that he is not viewed as a long term answer. And IF he can give us a performance that got the Bill’sto the playoffs last year, he is certainly capable of doing that with the Browns this year. All we are asking for is someone to play ball control football. Protect points on ththe boar.

    You think, I believe, thatthe Browns are actually as bad as 1-31 shows. Youd be wrong. The defense is looking like a top 10 squad this year. The WRs, which were a weakness, are easily top 10. The running game is WAY better than last year and WAY better than you think. In short, this team is betterthan the playoff team in Buffalo. And TT got them there last year.

  30. Gee I thought he got along great with Tannehill, on and off field. Or is just complaining about Cutler? Now THAT I can agree with! Thanks to Cutler, I took the year off being a Fins fan….thank you God that my Aggie Home Boy is back, Tannehill.
