Baker Mayfield sees positives in Sunday’s loss, Jarvis Landry disagrees

The Browns fired head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley this week, but those changes didn’t lead to a better result.

The Chiefs beat the Browns 37-21 on Sunday, which leaves Cleveland with a 2-6-1 record as they head into their final game before the bye. Quarterback Baker Mayfield said that while there is “obviously” a lot of room for improvement, there was also a lot for the offense to “build on” in the weeks to come.

“Offensively, I think there was a lot more good in this game than we had in the past,” Mayfield said, via ESPN.com. “… You have to find those positives. You have to build on it to where eventually the positives outweigh the negatives and you are not dealing with losses, you are dealing with wins. And then you are trying to eliminate the negative stuff. Right now we are at a point where we need to keep getting better at what we are good at and go from there.”

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry wasn’t in the mood to find silver linings, though. Landry said “it doesn’t matter” when asked about improvements on offense.

“We lost,” Landry said. “What steps did we take?”

The Browns had three straight scoring drives in the first half, which would mark something to try to build off given how dismal things got the last few weeks. As Landry made clear, however, searching for bright spots amid the darkness obviously doesn’t play for everyone.

  1. The good news for the Browns is the team that beat them today was put together by their GM John Dorsey. Cleveland has a good basis to succeed and Dorsey has a track record of rebuilding messes (like the 2012 Chiefs) . So no one likes to lose but if history repeats himself you’ll be on the other side soon

  2. “Jarvis Landry wasn’t in the mood to find silver linings”

    Suck it up dude, you signed a contract with the Browns
    what did you expect.

  3. The Brown are headed in the right direction. They are not that far from being a contender. They lost some games early in the season that they should have won. You could be a Bills fan like me!

  4. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry wasn’t in the mood to find silver linings, though. Landry said “it doesn’t matter” when asked about improvements on offense.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say Landry was NOT the WR with the best stats. He did this all the time in Miami. He even got mad when the Dolphins were winning/won but he didn’t get his 8 catches at the line of scrimmage. Jarvis is a good slot receiver who thinks he is the #1 and throws a tantrum when he isn’t.

  5. Yeah, positives steps taken in scoring 21 against one of the worst defenses in the league at home, lol. Just the Browns being the Browns. Watch people start calling Landry a cancer next and Mayfield a “leader” for his asinine comments though.

  6. Dolphin fans knew it wouldn’t be long before Jarvis started his nonsense. He did it in Miami, and caused more trouble
    Than he was worth. Now he can deal with it in Cleveland.

  7. Jarvis is justified to be frustrated considering the receivers were nearly completely removed from the offense and that does effect his pay.

    The ironic thing is that was Hue Jackson’s offensive playbook they used and it actually worked better than the Madden football video game playbook Todd Haley has been using where the only people he was fooling with his trick plays and reverses was his own players.

    You can hate on Hue all you want as a head coach but the man can draw up offensive plays so well a guy who’s never called an NFL game in his life can get production out of his play book which is what that was. You would have thought Duke Johnson had just come back from an injury considering he went from barely productive to superman with a coaching change.
