With questions about their four-game laps that go into their game against Atlanta and the amazing similar dismissal of Hue Jackson and assistant Todd Haley, a word was given as proof of positive things.

The verbal barbs are delivered without warning, but veteran offensive linewoman Joel Bitonio always knows they are coming. 19659024] Mayfield’s mouth always moves Spectes an uninterruptible barrage of rubbish that differs with a temporary exploration directed against its opponent. It is designed to annoy and maybe inspire.

We can not turn around now,” Bitonio said, shaking his shoulders as he laughed. “It’s pretty cool. It gives you something .”

There is a thin line between mockery and self-sufficiency, and Mayfield runs daily. Depending on the audience he comes out as a jerk. Other times, standoffish. Opponents can hate him between the white lines, but it only makes him more to his teammates.

He is their source of energy. He is their fuel.

“It seems that defensive guys already have that edge,” Garrett, who was attached to Von Miller and J.J. Watt for third largest sack (nine), said earlier this past week. “We’re doing everything to break them. And many offensive guys do not have it.”

“Dez Bryant has it. Steve Smith had it. It’s like a fire, not just killing you, but breaking down. And [Mayfield] has some of it. “

Mayfields decorated college career, complete with happy speech and Heisman Trophy honor, believing who he is at the core: An earlier college walk-on that defied the doubts at every turn.

He’s still an underdog who can not shake off the chip he has always carried on his shoulders, and in some ways make him tailor made for Cleveland. Mayfield was chosen at times like these, when the odds seem insurmountable and Browns seem hopeless.

He has flourished in relentless review – but much of it was raised by his own doubt behavior (that is, his 2017 arrest for public poisoning, disorderly behavior and refugee and resilient arrest).

The glare of the spotlight followed him to Cleveland, where HBO’s “Hard Knocks” cameras shaded his every move while serving as backup to veteran Tyrod Taylor.

Mayfield admitted that last year been a type of roller coaster, but his teammates see him as the calming power of the storm’s eye, the burning initiator whose unpleasant energy and uninterrupted self-confidence bend everyone around him.

He is a 23-year-old rejuvenated a denied franchise. And Mayfield would not want it in any other way.

Requested to return the quarterly message in the aftermath of J Ackson and Haley’s celebrations, Higgins said: “He wanted us to stay together as a unit. Continue playing hard as we do. Do not worry about the distractions because they will be there, but it’s up to us to see how to handle things. “

For once, the moment was not about him. It was for them the offensive line men, starters and backups equally covering his ass every week. And although he was not meant to prepare dinner, he was determined to make the evening special. It was Mayfield’s way to care for his boys .

Therefore, rookie opened the quarterback between stains of food and waves of laughter wine bottles and made sure their bows were full.

“He takes care of us,” Bitonio said about his dinner party a few thursdays ago. Offensive line man was invited, he noted and seven could join Mayfield and his fiancee Emily Wilkinson.

“I’ve had quarterbacks take us out before”, allow leftover, now in his fifth season in Cleveland. “But I have ages I actually got them to invite us to their house and make food. “

An invitation to a homemade meal may not look like much, but Mayfield’s gesture was noted in the dressing room. “He loves his guys,” said Garrett. “Especially the o-line. It’s his boys. He shows respect and it should be.”

This storage room has not seen anyone like Mayfield before – on or outside the field. And the tie between him and his teammates is crucial. Especially now.

The hope of a whole city rests on the shoulders of his 6-foot-1-frame, and the events in recent weeks have not changed expectations for him. Nor have they ruled the decision of rookies.

“If I’m pleased with that, I do not think I’d be the man for the job,” said Mayfield, who came in on Sunday 28-16 victory over Atlanta, leading all rookie quarterbacks with 252.6 fitting turns per game.

After each match, regardless of the outcome, Higgins and his quarterback can be found together.

The couple either couples up in Mayfield’s house or at a local dinner, often surrounded by loved ones. It’s their chance to “get rid of the game,” says Higgins. But a few days, especially today, Mayfield is difficult to get rid of the end result.

“It has been times he came to me and been like,” Man, I am tired of losing this. I’ve never lost so much in college, “says Higgins.” He has told me such things. But he has never shown it. “

Jackson was shown the door on October 29 together with Haley after going 3-36-1. It was as early as training camp like Jackson’s way to do things they rang around him. Apart from the apparent tension between Jackson and Haley, Jarvis Landry was memorable and spoken speech where he led teammates to not practice.

“It was at the point where the boys were given vacant days that did not deserve them or nothing was wrong with them, said Landry about his epic rant. “But it was the culture around. It was normal.”

“If you practice for two days, you get a third day off. And I thought it was bull-sorry, “he said, apologizing for the curse,” and that’s why I said what I said, as I said it. “

He then logged.

” My mom is not proud of it. She is angry at me, said Landry. “But that’s the only way. I’m a passionate person.”

The innate love of the game connects him and Mayfield. Their refusal to back down from a challenge is what unites them in their quest to build Browns into a legitimate playoff contender.

Cleveland, now 3-6-1, is far from being considered a functional, well-managed organization. Some decent games from Mayfield will not compensate years with disastrous drafts and bad jobs. But there is much to be optimistic about in Berea.

With Mayfield, the game is never dead. With Mayfield at the helm, Browns always thinks they have a chance.

Although the season began with Taylor under the center, everyone in the closet was aware that Baker was the closest future. “You know he will be the face of the franchise for, hopefully, the next 10, 15 years. And to have that kind of swagger with him, be cool to be a part of. You know this guy will take next step. “

Just like Garrett, Higgins considered the moment he knew Mayfield was NFL ready: The Thursday night won over the jets when rookie replaced a injured Taylor to lead Browns to a recurring win. “Tyrod was injured. Baker came in. Crowd went wild, says Higgins.
