Rams-Raiders Instant Reaction: Baker Mayfield is my favorite lifelong Ram

He’s never played anywhere else

NFL: Las Vegas Raiders at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight I’m hearing things like, “Welcome to the Rams, Baker Mayfield” but I’m like what? That guy has been on the Rams as long as I can remember. I wouldn’t even WANT to remember anything before Baker Mayfield was on the Rams, as if that could even be true.

On Thursday night against the Raiders, Baker Mayfield did what he’s always done as the quarterback for the Rams: He led the offense on a 98-yard touchdown drive to complete a late 13-point comeback to make NFL history.

That’s what Baker Mayfield does on the Rams. What are you, new or something?

I HATE people that are new! That’s why Baker Mayfield is my favorite lifelong member of the Los Angeles Rams. He’s not new. He’s always been here.

You want to see someone who’s “new” to football? Go watch Josh McDaniels and Derek Carr.
