Nick Bosa rips Baker Mayfield after blowout: ‘He was panicking’

Most observers would say they'll reserve judgment of the 49ers until they beat a quality opponent.

The 49ers cruised to a dominant 31-3 win over the Browns on Monday to move to 4-0 on the season, former number one overall pick Mayfield enduring a chastening evening at Levi's Stadium as he was pummelled by an imposing San Francisco defense. The rookie leads the team with 17 pressures and appears to be fully fit after battling an ankle injury to start the season. "I feel we have one of the best in the league". This time, brutally bad. The ESPN video actually shows Mayfield and Kittle briefly hugging after shaking hands.

The high expectations placed on the Browns during the preseason, a rosy outlook based exclusively on talent and potential, not only seem unfounded but unfeasible.

Mayfield finished the first half with a QB rating of 19.8, completing 7 of his 16 passes for just 80 yards and two interceptions.

"What's incredible, and annoying, was him not shaking hands at the beginning", Sherman said. Sherman insisted the slight motivated him and the Niners.

"Respect the game", Sherman told Silver. We're all trying to get psyched up, but shaking hands with your opponent - that's National Football League etiquette. I think you see a lot of the highlights and stuff, and you see a lot of the conversations, but you don't see these guys being mentioned for Pro Bowls and All-Pros. If you said we weren't gonna make it, if you said we were some way early on, just stick with that position.

Enthusiasm for the 49ers does seem to be returning to the Bay Area, after five seasons of turmoil that included three head coaching changes - from Jim Harbaugh to Jim Tomsula, to Chip Kelly, to Shanahan. He hits Mayfield for the strip turnover in the second half.

DeForest Buckner, another 49ers captain, said Mayfield also snubbed him. Flag-planting celebrations like Nick Bosa's long-awaited revenge act on Baker Mayfield might not fly under the Bill Belichick regime.

"He had it coming", said Bosa.

The Browns are coming off a big win after they answered their critics with a 40-25 beatdown on the Baltimore Ravens, a fellow AFC North team.

The Eagles went into Lambeau Field in a must-win situation and they delivered. "He called the touchdown before we even said hike. We know what we have in the building". "I know, personally, I saw at least one rough snap that looked very hard for Robbie to get off". Breida described what was working in the run game for the offense. Last week he was sacked only once, and the team won by 15 on the road.

The next step is to correct the mistakes made in the loss and build on the improvements made.

While Jarvis Landry was the beneficiary this time around, piling up eight catches for 167 yards (before leaving with a concussion), the free-flowing passing should get Odell Beckham and David Njoku involved as Mayfield exploits the best matchup. He also pinned the Niners inside their 20 four times.
