Baker Mayfield Won't Be Named Starter Until Next Week, Procrastinating Coach Says

Three games into the 2018 season, the Browns are 1-1, with one tie.

Open the coolers, Browns fans.

In week 2, the Browns were defeated 21-to-18 by the New Orleans Saints.

With the city of Cleveland awash in Mayfield mania, however, it's hard to fathom Jackson sending his electric rookie back to the bench.

Barack Obama was still president of the United States the last time Cleveland won a game, which was December 24, 2016.

However, Browns head coach Hue Jackson was not ready to publically announce if Mayfield is going to be the starter at quarterback going forward.

Anheuser-Busch sponsored the Victory Fridge promotion in conjunction with Brecksville-based distributor House of La Rose, promising free Bud Light to long-suffering Browns fans if and when the team finally won a game.

It is often said that despite the tremendous recent success of LeBron James and the Cavaliers, Cleveland is very much a football town. It was clear then that the two don't get along and it was clear once again on Thursday night.

Joe Buck, who famously called the Randy Moss mooning celebration, didn't go so far as to call Crowell's celebration a "disgusting act", but he wasn't too happy about it either.

"I think you guys all feel good about where things are headed", Jackson said Friday after the Browns reached.500 for the first time since the 2014 season.
