Fox Sports Radio host Colin Cowherd isn’t the type of person to admit when he’s wrong. However, the sports equivalent of a radio “shock jock” did the closest thing to it on Tuesday. Cowherd invited Baker Mayfield back on his show and offered to but dinner for he and his fiancee Emily Wilkinson.
After labeling Baker Mayfield as “undraftable” prior to last year’s NFL Draft, Cowherd doubled down on his statements, even after the star joined him in studio.
Analysts like Joel Klatt have rushed to Mayfield’s defense, stating facts over opinion, but the the greatest defense was the former Heisman winner’s play on the field and the way his team rallied to him on the way to their best record in more than a decade.
Cleveland will enter the opportunity to end an NFL-leading 15-year playoff drought.
