Baker Mayfield calls Hue Jackson “fake” in response to criticism

ESPN analyst Damien Woody appeared on "First Take" on Monday, and he essentially told Mayfield to "grow up".

Following Sunday's game, Mayfield, who began the season as Tyrod Taylor's backup before an injury moved him into the starting lineup, said he didn't feel the need to interact with Jackson.

NFL.com's Graham Barfield shared an insane stat on Sunday that Mayfield's 129.5 passer rating since Jackson was sacked after Week 8 of the season is second only to New Orleans Saints star Drew Brees over that span.

"Baker Mayfield needs to grow up", said Woody, who played in the National Football League for eight years.

"He left Cleveland and goes in to Cincinnati".

Jackson, who was sacked by the Browns earlier this season, joined Cleveland's AFC North rival, the Bengals as a special assistant. "You're dealing with grown men". Coach gets fired, he decides to pick up another job, available job that Marvin Lewis obviously reached out to him about. What I found amusing about this whole thing, Baker Mayfield, didn't he go from Texas Tech to Oklahoma?

CRISPR bombshell: Chinese researcher claims to have created gene-edited twins
He's goal was to disable a gene called CCR5, a protein co-receptor that creates a doorway for HIV to enter the host cell. In recent years scientists have discovered a relatively easy way to edit genes, the strands of DNA that govern the body.

Woody is right, as Jackson was sacked by the Browns, rather than leaving on his own terms.

Mayfield was a walk-on at Texas Tech where he started as a true freshman, and a scholarship disagreement with then-head coach Kliff Kingsbury led to his transfer.

He shot back at Woody with an Instagram comment, saying the announcer's take was "not even comparable" and then took another crack at Jackson.

You want the moment of the day in the NFL?

The Browns and the Bengals will meet again in Cleveland on December 23, which will mark the first time Jackson will return there since joining Cincinnati.
