Even HOFers fawn over Baker
The pre-production meeting hosted by Troy Aikman and Joe Buck offered a behind the scenes look at how the TV crew gets ready for broadcast.
All of those nuggets of information the broadcasters have? They get it from meetings like this.
Mayfield and Taylor are no strangers to such a spectacle, but I thought it was good learning experience for Mayfield to watch Taylor answer questions as the two sat side-by-side.
The other big takeaway from this was Aikman fawning over the Heisman winner.
“I had the chance to watch you at Oklahoma and study you going into the draft and what you did in your collegiate career but what I like is you just want to win…and hey, the John Dorsey thing, awesome! Awesome!”
Aikman was referring to the Rookie Show skit the Browns’ rookie produced.
Mayfield told Aikman that Dorsey hated it.
The game turned out to be Mayfield’s most unimpressive of the preseason. He wasn’t all that bad, but he failed to lead a touchdown drive for the first time in the exhibition campaign.
It probably benefits Mayfield that he got to come into the game after Taylor got hurt because if he’s going to play in 2018, that’s probably how the scenario will play out.
