Three reasons why the Cleveland Browns and Baker Mayfield could struggle in 2020.
Baker Mayfield should have a huge year in 2020. The team made a lot of strides, seemingly improved all of their biggest issues, and put themselves into a great position to have prolonged success for years to come. That doesn’t mean the Cleveland Browns and Mayfield aren’t immune to having a terrible year, however.
That’s not to say that it will happen or it’s wanted or even expected. It’s just a simple possibility and one that should be pointed out. We talked about the three reasons why Mayfield is poised for a big year in 2020, and so it would be disingenuous to not look at the possibility of the inverse being possible.
None of this is meant as an indication or prediction that Mayfield will struggle this season. Simply an acknowledgment that it’s a possibility, no matter how unlikely or unwanted. Mayfield is someone who has immense talent, and none of the entries will have anything to do with him not being good enough. For as we’ve seen, he has what it takes to get the job done. It’s only a matter of if he has what it takes to get the job done when everything else around him is falling apart.
That’s the question that may be answered this year, but who knows. So with all that said, let’s look at why Mayfield could struggle in 2020.
