The Colin Cowherd vs. Baker Mayfield War is out of this world.
Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield said Wednesday night that he believes he saw a UFO in Texas, which is apparently a common occurrence among NFL quarterbacks.
Cowhardt, a sports-talk personality, took Airways once again (possibly sarcastically?) To brief the quarterback for what he saw.
Cowboy Full of Ridiculous:
And on Twitter, Baker Mayfield announced, “I just saw a traffic driving near Lake Travis. And for that I would say … I prefer, of all the qualities of a franchise quarterback, I want to know your arm Am. Are You Already Good? -Snap? Are You Mobile? The ability to see UFOs in the offseason is nowhere near my top-10 qualifications. Joe Montana, Troy Ackman, Terry Bradshaw, Tom Brady have never seen aliens. Haven't seen. I'd prefer my people not to talk about it. This. But in fairness, Aaron Rodgers also admits, he has seen a UFO and he won the Super Bowl.

Cowherd's soliloquy is reminiscent of a satirical tweet sent by a Twitter user in response to Mehrfield's UFO tweet, with the tweet raising Meyerfield's “voice” for his close encounter.
“I just don't like my franchise quarterback having to face overseas encounters in the offseason. You know where you don't have UFO sightings? Film room How do you think you're not listening to Tom Brady's The X-Files? He is watching the tape. I mean, seaman baker. ” pic.twitter.com/aDQtivROyM

The similarities between Cowhard's take and the possibility of a tweet point to the hyper-awareness and online-ness of Cowhard and its shock-jock sports-talk brand – or a surprising, disastrous, lack of self-awareness. Either is entirely possible.
The feud between Mayfield and Cowherd has been going on for a long time, with the Cleveland QB recently calling Cowherd a “clown”. Cowhard also called Mansfield redundant for his choice to wear his hat backwards.
In a battle of UFOs, the Brown quarterback and the gasbag, perhaps the Cowherd, should sit it out.
