Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield just doesn’t seem to know when it’s time to keep his mouth shut.

The rookie quarterback played an outstanding game Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, who hired his former Cleveland coach Hue Jackson following his mid-season firing.

What do you think Mayfield should have said following the big win over his former coach’s new team? Maybe not much? Talk a little about your appreciation for him? Nope. He didn’t take the high road at all.

He talked about his frustration that Jackson went to a team the Browns play “twice a year.”

Hey, there’s nothing classier than subtly trashing a guy who was publicly fired and used to be part of your organization, right? (RELATED: Here Are The Best Moments From Week 11 Of The NFL Season)

This is the part about Mayfield that is so frustrating. He has all the talent in the world, and still can’t manage to find a way to not become so damn hatable. This shouldn’t be this difficult.

Go out there, sling footballs around, throw touchdowns and don’t say dumb stuff.

Jackson was fired by the Browns. That was the organization’s choice to make, but it’s insane to blame Jackson for going to the Bengals or any other team.

That’s only his choice, and you certainly can’t blame somebody for going to the rival of the team that kicked him to the curb. That’s just sports.

Maybe, Mayfield will realize the absurdity of his frustration when he understands the business he’s currently in.
