The messy divorce between the Cleveland Browns and head coach Hue Jackson marred the early part of the season for the Browns, and quarterback Baker Mayfield was right in the middle of it. The Browns' star rookie signal-caller doesn't like his former coach, and he doesn't care who knows it. So much so that when Jackson, who is now an assistant for the Cincinnati Bengals, visited Cleveland with his new team, Baker gave him a hell of a stare down on his way down the field.
Extended version: Baker Mayfield stared... and stated... and stared even more at Hue Jackson. He doesn't like him and he doesn't hide it. pic.twitter.com/2LuVoeN78t— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) December 23, 2018
Yeesh. That is intense. And in case you were wondering what Baker's teammates and the Browns fans feel about Jackson? Well, the fans cheering them on as they threw the ball deep up big in the 4th quarter against Jackson's Bengals should give you the answer.
Thousands of Browns fans chanting "BA-KER! BA-KAER! BA-KER!" as Baker Mayfield and the Browns keep throwing the ball deep up 20 in the fourth quarter against a Hue Jackson-coached Bengals trotting out a C-list roster.— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) December 23, 2018
Really incredible stuff.
No love lost in Ohio.
