Tuesday on 2 Pros and Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington react to Baker Mayfield having a red ass with the media and explain why he's not getting enough credit for battling through injuries to keep the Browns relevant.

LaVar Arrington: "He wanted that contract coming into this season. Anytime you get one game down, you're one game removed from making the case of why you should get an extension and he didn't play at a very high level. What he did do was gut through and power through the pain of what he's dealing with physically..."
Brady Quinn: "We have to admit they're a much better football team than before he got there. So not only are they a better team but they're winning and he's playing through a lot of stuff and no one is giving him credit for it. That's the frustrating part, is on the outside, everyone is asking if he's worth the franchise quarterback money and on the inside he's like, "dude I'm just doing my best to get on the field every Sunday and you guys can't even appreciate that.'"
Jonas Knox: "I don't think it's any coincidence this organization turned around when Baker Mayfield became the starting quarterback. We can say whatever we want about him being a game manager and not worth the big contract. All I know is, when they opened up a bunch of Bud Light fridges around the country because the Browns finally won a game, it was because Baker Mayfield came and bailed them out."
