Easy decision of all-time

The Cleveland Browns rode a big game from rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield on Thursday night to their first win of the season.  As a result head coach Hue Jackson is expected to name him the new starting quarterback, but he won't do so until Monday.

Via Cleveland.com:

Browns coach Hue Jackson won't name Baker Mayfield his starter until Monday so he can tell Mayfield and Tyrod Taylor first.

But it's no secret Mayfield will be his choice.

He's giving the players the weekend off after Thursday night's come-from-behind 21-17 victory over the Jets, and when they reconvene on Monday, he'll inform Taylor that he's turning the reins over to his No. 1 overall pick. 

This might be the biggest no-brainer in the history of football.  Mayfield wasn't perfect, but his play was on a different level compared to Tyrod Taylor's.  

Mayfield brought a new energy to the Browns and the team fed off of it.  They have a real shot at winning a few more games this season.
