On Wednesday afternoon during his press conference, reporters asked Baker Mayfield about comments recently made by former NFL head coach Rex Ryan.

The former coach called Mayfield "overrated" and slammed the Browns for their 1-2 start to the season.

If we know anything about Mayfield at this point in his career, we know he doesn't sit back and take it. That was the case this afternoon when he fired back at Ryan for his comments.

"It's whatever...if you don't wear orange and brown you don't matter and Rex Ryan doesn't have any colors right now for a reason," Mayfield said.

It's the response we've come to expect from Mayfield in his second season in the league. He also has a point.

Although the Browns have looked shaky so far this season, Rex's coaching career didn't end well either.

After a stellar close to the 2018 season, Mayfield hasn't found the same success this year. Despite adding Odell Beckham Jr., the Browns offense has struggled to put up points - albeit against solid defenses.

The Browns' schedule won't get any easier this weekend when the team travels to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. After that, the Browns head to San Francisco for a game against the 49ers.
