FS1 analyst Colin Cowherd has taken aim at Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield from the moment that he entered the league. The analyst trashed the pick when it was made and called Mayfield a selfish player because he showed one example of the quarterback celebrating with the fans instead of his teammates. Once Cowherd gets stuck on an opinion, he rarely changes his mind. Former Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James has been the target of ongoing criticism for years.
With that being said, no one would have expected the analyst to be found on Mayfield’s Christmas card list. Mayfield was the bigger man wishing him a ‘Merry Christmas’ Monday despite following it with ‘ya grinch.’ If those two can set aside their differences today, then everyone else can too.
Merry Christmas to everybody!!! Enjoy your time with loved ones during this special time of the year!! ….. even to you @ColinCowherd ya Grinch

Mayfield has been a gift to Browns fans all season. The former No. 1 overall selection has completed 287-of-444 passes this season for 3,349 yards, 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also has 39 carries for 131 yards. The Oklahoma product has won NFL Rookie of the Week five times this season and has been nominated yet again this week.
This time of year is meant to come together and do some good in the world. If only that spirit could parlay into the other 51 weeks in the year.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Cleveland Browns on 247Sports!
