Brett Favre: Baker Mayfield and Patrick Mahomes play the way I played

Brett Favre likes what he sees from a couple of the NFL's bright young quarterback stars.

Favre says Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes are the two quarterbacks in the NFL today whose playing styles most remind him of himself.

"There's no question that the sky is the limit for Baker," Favre told Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal. "And, yeah, I think his style of play, and I've heard the same thing about Mahomes, and I agree with both, that their styles of play - if you had to pick a former player - would certainly match up to my style."

Favre says he sees Mayfield and Mahomes going beyond how the play was drawn up when the circumstances call for it, and he likes to see that.

"It's a play-action fake that you've never seen before or a flip, underhand pass or diving over three defenders or ducking your head and getting the extra yard," Favre said. "Those are the type of things that are the unexpected that will become, at some point, maybe expected with a guy like Baker or Mahomes. Playing [quarterback] the way I played and the way Baker and Mahomes play is they just kind of have that added little sixth sense."

That is high praise from a Hall of Famer, but based on the early returns from Mahomes and Mayfield, that praise is justified.

Baker Mayfield doesn't have to put up money for his mouth. The Browns quarterback won his appeal and won't have to pay a $12,500 fine he received from the NFL last month for criticizing officials. Following Cleveland's 32-28 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 13, Mayfield called the officiating "pretty bad" and he was particularly critical of a blindside block penalty called against Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

Although certain topics remain unacceptable, improper, and potentially illegal during employment screening, teams need to know which players can control their on-off switch when it comes to pushing, shoving, and hitting - and which players cannot. Thus, teams try to get under the skin of these players during the pre-draft process in order to best assess whether they can or can't control themselves under the stress and strain that comes with playing football at the highest level. It's a fine line.
