I love this show more than any other pod, and I’m currently subscribed to 15 other football pods. But I must digress, and I feel this is the only form of media I’m able to.
Mr. John Schmeelk- I like you, even if I don’t agree with you all of the time. In fact.... I never agree with you anymore, but I still like you. Why, oh why do you want the New York Giants to draft Baker Mayfield 2nd overall? Football inabilities and that fake completion percentage (that was a product of a spread scheme, the best OL in CFB, the worst defenses in CFB, a run first attack, and dink and dunk short passes after his OL bought him 5 minutes to escape the pocket, which drew the subpar LB’s out of the box, allowing him a wide open window to throw the ball to the best coached WR corps in CFB (sterling shepard) on their crisp routes against subpar DB’s)— football inabilities aside, why would you bring that child into the NY spotlight? If Darnold and Rosen are spoiled, Baker’s an only child in the middle of a toy store in December with rich parents.
Everyone knows that he was arrested in February of 2017 because he attempted to run from the cops “because he was drunk.” In essence, yes. But no one mentions why the cops were there in the first place. He first tried to steal some random guy’s Chinese food- and that was in Arkansas. My goodness, imagine him in midtown- already a recipe for disaster. Anyways, he fled after he grabbed the Chinese food from some random guy at 2:00am—AND HE COULDN’T OUTRUN THE RANDOM GUY! Come on, that’s like Jeff Feagles slow!
So the guy catches up to him and at a minimum, a verbal exchange is made between he and Baker. That’s when the gentleman flagged down a police officer to “take an assault and battery report” (official transcripts from the arresting officer). At this point there’s at least four police officers on scene. While they are listening to the poor individual (whom was probably working a grave shift to pay for his child’s medical bills) recount his mugging, two officers tell Baker to “stop cussing and yelling” at his girlfriend (whom was sitting down and Baker was staring down on) or they will “arrest him right now.” Baker heeds this point and agrees to stop, and stepped away from his girlfriend. His girlfriend then thanked the police. So Baker casually took several steps....and then turned to an outright sprint, reminiscent of Jeff Feagles chasing DeSean. Yes, HE’S THAT SLOW! Even the arresting officer noted this when he was told that Baker was the QB for OU!
So Baker got laid out-the hit was alright, but those police officers aren’t exactly NFL caliber linebackers for a reason. That’s when the alligator tears started. In the report, the police officer claims Baker was resisting putting his arms behind his back. Fortunately for us, our other boys in blue are better at their jobs than Baker is at being a QB for a pro-style offense— they forced his arm behind his back.... And then came the real tears. A LOT of tears- Baker’s loaded parents just told him “no” in the middle of that toy store. Go ahead and Youtube “Baker mayfield arrest video” and make sure to click on the one that’s 18 minutes long— the proof is in the pudding. What’s ironic to me is, clearly he’s had a few drinks... but I didn’t notice him stumble at all. Whatever, they cut him a break and said “boys will be boys.” So he learned, right? No- this just enabled Baker. Planting the flag. The obscene gestures and mouthing “vacuum” to opposing teams (all while on national television). The kid must think he’s the leader of the free world with how he calls out people on Twitter. And he’s a product of the strict disciplinarian institution of Oklahoma University. Someone get Sterling’s take on Baker. Baker’s like the misbehaved little kid during the first five minutes of an episode of Law and Order SVU- you don’t know the how or the what, but you know it’s about to get shockingly ugly and he’s going to be the one Elliot Stabler hauls away in cuffs.
To summarize, Mr. Schmeelk, you want to transition from Eli the perfect son Manning to this character, that’s emotionally suited to be on Monday Night Raw, in a market that will never let the greatest WR in the game forget about that time he shoved a kicking net? You must own stock in TMZ. I hope Gettleman listened today so he can point and laugh at you in the cafeteria come May. Maybe he’ll put in a good word for you to Vince McMahon to get you a GM job with the XFL. Baker Mayfield.....🙄 🤦♂️ stick to journalism, sir!
