Hunt's dad takes aim at Mayfield in Facebook post
Just weeks after Odell Beckham Sr. shared a video showing Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield missing throws directed at his son, Odell Beckham Jr., another player's father is voicing their displeasure with the signal-caller.
Running back Kareem Hunt's father, Kareem Hunt Sr., took to Facebook to voice his opinion on the Browns passer.
"What we see (is) he's limping, he's scared to throw the ball, and they know he's hurt," he wrote in the post.
Kareem Sr. played down any comparison of his actions to those of Odell Sr.
The rant came during the Browns' 16-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football. Mayfield, who's dealing with foot, shoulder, and knee issues, completed 18 of 37 pass attempts for 247 yards and a touchdown. He missed some important throws as Cleveland converted just four of 13 third-down opportunities.
The defeat marked the third consecutive contest in which the Browns didn't score more than 10 points.
However, head coach Kevin Stefanski said he has no plans to bench Mayfield following the team's upcoming bye week.
"Let me ask you a question, Why would we do that? We're not doing that," he said, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.
"It's frustrating. It is very frustrating," Stefanski added. "To not score enough, it's always a combination of things - staying on the field on third down, trying to run the ball effectively, and getting in the red zone, all of those things. But we're just not doing a good enough job, and that starts with me."
The Browns (6-6) have next week off before hosting the Ravens in a rematch on Dec. 12.
