Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield complained after today’s game that Odell Beckham hasn’t been himself because he has a groin injury that wasn’t handled properly by the team’s training staff. Shortly after, he apologized.

Mayfield wrote on Twitter that he wasn’t trying to attack the team’s trainers.

“My intentions were not to throw our medical staff under the bus. No I don’t know all the facts about Odell’s injury. It was emotionally answered because I can sense his frustration and I care about my team and putting us in the best position to win,” Mayfield wrote. “Those people within our building know my intentions and where I am coming from. I truly believe that and I apologize to those that don’t deserve the backlash. . . . Today was a good team win. On to the next one.”

Although the Browns are having their best season in years, it probably won’t be enough to make the playoffs, and there’s been palpable disappointment in Cleveland. Mayfield obviously isn’t happy.

  1. He might be a leader, but his leadership failed with discussing this after a game. And just created a bunch of controversy and noise this team does not need from a supposed franchise QB. I hope he knows he through the organization under the bus. And if he doesn’t, someone needs to have a talk with him now.

  2. Obj is doing exactly what everyone said he would in the offseason. Bad move by Dorsey. Obj is a cancer. He is over rated and small, scared to take a hit or play in the slot. The only 5’9 guy who doesnt ever play the slot.he cares about obj and that’s it. The fact they game plan around trying to force him the ball and he still cant get open. Guy lost a step after 3 leg injuries. Dude has dropped the most balls on the team. Hold your breath everytime he gets a easy throw. I pray they just cut ties. Guy is miserable in wins if he doesnt get his numbers.

  3. Whatever. Get the hell over yourselves. This is our guy. Our go to. If you don’t like it then that is a YOU problem not an us problem. You ask his opinion and he gives it. I want some breathing room for Baker and Freddie and the entire team to get time to evolve. Everyone else needs to calm the hell down. We’re tired of torches and pitchforks at the gates here in Cleveland.

    Too bad, you won’t be getting any breathing room for Larry The Cable Guy and Big Mouth Baker. Like it or not THE standard was set for Coaching in the NFL by your namesake, Paul Brown. Quarterbacking from Otto, Sipe and Kosar. Stop accepting mediocrity.

    The truth hurts, the truth is Dorsey is a low class loser who has filled your team with low class loser coaches and low class loser locker room cancer players. Sucks but it is the truth, you guys need another full housecleaning.

  5. Beckham is nursing a fire hydrant injury and is killing the grass. He isn’t worth the embarrassment that he brings with his antics. dump him.

  6. This guy is terribly immature. Time was (not all that long ago either) when it would have been amazing how immature he is for as old as he is and the position he occupies and the experience he has. Now it’s becoming normal.

  7. “It was emotionally answered because I can sense his frustration and I care about my team and putting us in the best position to win,”

    “It was emotionally answered”…?? Oh, it was? Who did that again?
    The Browns will never win with an alleged leader who dissociates himself from all responsibility every time he does something immature.

  8. There is no way to interpret or to receive that statement as anything OTHER than Baker throwing the medical staff under the bus. That is exactly what the statement was, there can be no other reason for having said it.
    And once it’s said, those dudes MAY if they are bigger men than I forgive you; but they will NEVER forget, and NEVER trust you quite the same EVER again. That’s human nature.
    That’s your leader.

  9. “Oh… oh wait… that came out wrong… I didn’t REALLY mean to throw our medical staff under the bus. It just SOUNDS like that’s what I did only because it’s what I did, but I didn’t really MEAN it!” As I said, what a tool this guy is and ALWAYS HAS BEEN. Poor Browns fans. The silliness continues….

  10. I keep going back to the commercials and how stupid they make BM look but in reality he approaches the quarterback position like he cleans the stadium with a dust buster and mowes artificial turf not a good look for a professional QB.

  11. His statement reads like someone who refuses any kind of accountability, or lacks a shred of emotional intelligence. Problem is these situations keep happening.

  12. Memo to Progressive Insurance: Your commercials starring Baked Mayfield turn off 99% of the American people…
