Thursday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington react to Baker Mayfield's latest comments about feeling disrespected in Cleveland and wanting the chance to boo people in their places of business to see how they feel.
Brady Quinn: "When you get compensated like you do, as a professional athlete, you have to realize there's a lot that goes along with that. Your life is no longer private. You give people the ability, for what you're being compensated, to when you're not performing well, to boo you... Suck it up. Deal with what comes with that and stop complaining about it. Be thankful for the fact that you're there and not somewhere else."
LaVar Arrington: "The fans owe you nothing. Yes, they can cross the line and be held accountable by someone or something, but it's not from you the player... You have to have a mindset and a mental focus that allows for you to be able to perform, no matter what the given scenario or circumstances or environment may be. That's why they call it hostile environments. Even if that hostile environment is your own fans."
Brady Quinn: "Look, I've been in Cleveland. I know how things can work in your favor work, or turn against you fast. And I'm sure he feels disrespected by how they handled this stuff, but that's the reality. It is not a right to play in the NFL. It's a privilege, and he's got to understand that. So no one needs to treat him with any respect. That's not what that game is about. It's about staying in as long as you can and trying to be as successful as you can until it's over."
Jonas Knox: "I was thinking to myself, man we haven't heard from Baker Mayfield for a few weeks. And I think that's the problem, like he just can't help himself. And maybe this is why he turns so many people off."
