Sports Host Says He’s Sold on Baker Mayfield, But Not Josh Allen
Looking at the calendar, it says we are in the third week of June; which typically means we get that annual off-season content in the NFL that leaves fans and national sports show hosts debating topics.
Not all of the topics are groundbreaking, but it's always fun to discuss who is better -- teams and players.
One sports show segment this week is not exactly making Buffalo Bills fans thrilled.
If you follow national sports show content, then you are likely aware of Skip Bayless.
Bayless has been a sports host for years on both ESPN and FS1. Before that, he worked in Texas at the Dallas Morning News and the Dallas Times Herald. He also worked in Chicago, as well as a fill-in host for The Jim Rome Show, before he grew even more famous on ESPN's First Take.
He now co-hosts the show Undisputed with Shannon Sharpe on Fox Sports 1.
Bayless has ruffled feathers before when it comes to Bills Mafia, but this week's take on Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield might be the best one yet.
On a segment that was shared on Twitter today, Sharpe and Bayless were talking about the 2018 quarterback class: Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson.
Sharpe said Baker is widely considered the third-best quarterback in that draft (as I would also agree), and Bayless said that "he still is not sure on the guy from Buffalo, and everyone says they're the favorite to win it all."
Sharpe: "Skip...you're not sure about Josh Allen?"
Bayless: "I got to see more."
Bayless did cover the college football teams in Texas and Oklahoma for years, and Baker went to both Texas Tech and Oklahoma, so Bayless being a fan still of Baker isn't surprising...but saying he needs to see more from Allen after the last two seasons, the 2021 playoff run, and his statistics, is obviously going to cause fans to roll their eyes.
