Browns ‘sticking’ with plan to start Taylor over Mayfield

first_imgLATEST STORIES Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (6) throws a pass away from New York Giants’ Kareem Martin (96) during the first half of a preseason NFL football game Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018, in East Rutherford, N.J. (AP Photo/Adam Hunger)BEREA, Ohio — He’s still Baker the backup.Despite rookie Baker Mayfield’s stellar performance in his NFL preseason debut, the Cleveland Browns are not moving the No. 1 overall pick into the starting lineup ahead of Tyrod Taylor.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew “He’s had 22 preseason NFL snaps,” Zampese said. “He has a long way to go and we’re encouraged with where he’s at right now.”The feeling is the same about Taylor, who was acquired from Buffalo during the offseason. The 29-year-old has been everything the Browns could have hoped as a leader and mentor to Mayfield.“He’s our guy, and that’s what he is,” Zampese said, “and to keep bringing it up is the only reason why anybody put a cloud in anybody’s head. So let’s get on with him being the guy and let’s get on to playing and winning and doing what we’re supposed to do and what we’re here for.”Zampese, who previously worked as Cincinnati’s quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator, gushed when describing what Taylor has brought to the Browns — and what he means to Mayfield.“Tyrod sets the bar for consistency,” Zampese said. “There’s no doubt about it. There’s no man I can think of more consistent than him — when he gets here, how he is when he’s here, taking care of his body, study habits, leading the team on the field. The bar is set very high. It’s fantastic.”ADVERTISEMENT “National hype,” quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese said Sunday, downplaying the outside push to elevate Mayfield after one game. “We have our plan, we’re sticking to it and when it changes we’ll all know.”Mayfield won over some doubters on Thursday night in a 20-10 win over the New York Giants. The Heisman Trophy winner from Oklahoma threw two touchdown passes to tight end David Njoku and showed pocket poise and awareness while completing 11 of 20 passes for 212 yards.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’The reviews on Mayfield were beyond exceptional, leading to cries that he should jump Taylor, who went 5 for 5 for 99 yards and posted a perfect 158.3 rating during his two series.Zampese was pleased with everything he saw from Mayfield, but he cautioned against putting too much into his first taste of pro football. MOST READ During his interview session, Zampese bristled at the idea that Taylor was just holding a spot until Mayfield is ready.“I’m not going to talk about keeping the seat warm,” Zampese snapped. “I think he’s going to be very successful for us this year, which is the only year that matters. And I like where he’s at, I like where he’s going, I love his leadership, the way he’s aggressively going about being the leader of this team, completing balls and moving us down the field.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Peza offers relief to ecozone firms DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced Gin Kings ‘overwhelmed’ as Ginebra fans brave bad weather to attend victory party In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Gov’t in no rush to rescue animals in Taal ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

HARTE CALLS FOR FREE TEXTS FOR ALL FOOTBALL FANS!

first_imgLabour Senator Jimmy Harte has called on the mobile phone companies to give the travelling fans free texts during the European Championships.The Co Donegal politician and football fan also called for reduced tariffs as a gesture to the many who are travelling to Poland and hopefully onto Ukraine.“According to reports, as many as 40,000 fans are hoping to travel to at least one game and these fans have been saving for a long time to see the Irish team in a major championship. “The companies will make plenty of revenue from these fans who will be calling home but it’s only fair that they should not be subjected to the exorbitant roaming fees that they will be hit with.“A study in the UK, based on average tariffs, has found consumers could face a total daily phone bill of around €330 for calls, texts and data for Ukraine bound fans so in Poland it may be a similar story,” he said.Senator Harte said he will ask the Minister for Sport Michael Ring to make the case for the hard pressed fans who are concerned about the mobile costs in Europe.“The phone companies have an opportunity to show the fans that they value their custom and offer them a gesture at this great event,” he said.

Officials try out Orange Line

first_imgSan Fernando Valley business leaders and elected officials took a test-ride Friday on the Metro Orange Line, which many see as an economic engine for redevelopment in underutilized pockets across the region. Three weeks before the $330 million busway opens to the public, leaders boarded the double-long buses to tour the route and adjacent bicycle-jogging path as part of a morning conference on transportation mobility in Los Angeles County. “We look at that as an economic engine, a driver. It’s something that will create interest where before there was not,” said Bruce Ackerman, president and CEO of the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley. “The economic development side of it holds even more potential than I think we’re aware of.” Business leaders touted the Orange Line’s ability to offer their employees a cheaper way to get to work. Educators said it could give working students a rush-hour route to night classes on college campuses. And urban planners said sleepy areas along the route could be ripe for redevelopment. The 14-mile busway built along an old rail line between North Hollywood and Warner Center is set to open Oct. 29, with two days of free rides. It’s the largest mass transit infrastructure investment in the Valley since the last leg of the Metro Red Line subway opened in 2000. The busway promises a trip across the Valley in 40 minutes or less and it’s promoted as an alternative to the jammed Ventura Freeway. Alongside the transit line is a landscaped 14-mile bike and jogging path across the Valley. Residents have long worried that development spurred by the Orange Line would intrude into single-family neighborhoods. Such complaints fueled residents’ earlier lawsuit to halt the project that has since been settled. But business leaders said they envision redevelopment along the route in older, industrial pockets where land is underused. They envision growth particularly reviving commercial districts, such as Van Nuys Boulevard. For example, Ackerman said the park-and-ride station at Van Nuys, near the Valley’s government center with its 5,000 employees, would be a prime location for mixed-use residential and commercial development. Two or three other park-and-ride lots elsewhere could similarly be desirable locations. Property values can increase 20 percent near transit lines, one expert said. “We’ve grown up thinking big roads are the answer. Big roads are hard on neighborhoods. This is a neighborhood-friendly mass-transit alternative,” said urban planner Dan Rosenfeld of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce’s Economic Development and Land Use Committee. The ride was part of a meeting of Mobility 21, the countywide coalition of transportation, business, community and legislative leaders who advocate for traffic solutions. Elected officials included City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel; Assemblywoman Fran Pavley, D-Woodland Hills; Assemblyman Lloyd Levine, D-Van Nuys; and Assemblyman Paul Koretz, D-West Hollywood. Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky – who was called the Father of the Orange Line for championing it through his district – praised the busway as a system that can be built faster and cheaper than other transit solutions. “This is the kind of public transportation system that could easily work in our lifetime in any part of Los Angeles County.” Lisa Mascaro, (818) 713-3761 lisa.mascaro@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
