The Cleveland Browns need to fix their issues in a New York minute -- Bud Shaw's You Said It

Fans wonder about Baker Mayfield's mindset, Odell Beckham's fashion statement and LeBron James latest Nike news.

CLEVELAND — "You Said It" is a reader participation column based on the premise that if you don't laugh about Cleveland sports you'll cry.

And that if you do laugh about Cleveland sports, you might still end up crying. But at least friends and family will like being around you more. 


Bud: Did Baker Mayfield wake up on Sunday morning feeling like Mr. Rogers? — Michael Sarro 

Not sure about that but three interceptions at least suggests he woke up feeling generous.

Bud: John Dorsey missed one thing: bringing in some cheerleaders to cheer us up when the Brownies are getting their butts kicked. — Jim Walsh, Olmsted Falls.

You’ll have to settle for Cleveland Browns Daily.

Bud: If a defensive end has no tackles, no assists and no sacks, is that the NFL equivalent of a “Golden Sombrero?” — O. Bill Stone.

Until we have a bigger sample size, we’ll be kind and say the “O” stands for Olivier.

Bud: To quote the late, great Yogi Berra, "It's like deja vu all over again.” — Paula.

Watching what happened with the Browns after the first drive, I think maybe they followed another piece of advice from Yogi, who once said, “I usually take a two-hour nap between 1 and 4.”

Bud: Can you confirm the bruise on Baker’s right hand won’t interfere with chugging beers during the Tribe’s playoff series? — Rock Santay, Marion, IA.

Yes. I believe he will make his next beer at Progressive Field a bottle cap challenge and let Greg Robinson do the roundhouse kicking.

Bud: Greg Robinson says he didn’t intentionally kick a Titans player? Really? He knows we can can see the replay, right? — Tim, C-Town.

Careful not to jump to conclusions about intent. Are you familiar with restless leg syndrome?

Bud: Do you wear $350,000 watches around the WKYC studios? — Radu Marinescu, Glendale, AZ.

Beckham’s watch cost closer to $190,000. But to answer your question, it depends on whether I’m wearing my good ascot.

Bud: Will the new Nike building named after LeBron be moveable? — Jim Corrigan, Fairview Park.

It's good to see you're over it.

When Freddie Kitchens recently said to the team: “I’m not supposed to be here,” maybe he wasn’t kidding. — Andy Haag, Canton.

You Said It winners are ready for prime time.
