Baker Mayfield, Tristan Wirfs React To Liam Coen Chatter

February 2nd, 2024

Free agent QB Baker Mayfield.

Joe’s good friend Rock Riley is out at Camping World Stadium in Lakeland-with-theme-parks (that was Scot Brantley’s description of Orlando) at the Pro Bowl practice.

Looks like Rock is enjoying a nice day.

Anyway, Rock spoke with Baker Mayfield and left tackle Tristan Wirfs. Each is on the NFC team. Rock got their reactions to the chatter the Bucs are trying to lure Kentucky offensive coordinator Liam Coen back to the NFL.

Of course, Mayfield played for Coen for a handful of games in 2022 with the Rams. Wirfs apparently doesn’t know much about the guy.

Joe thinks this is a smart move the Bucs made, or are trying to make, in bringing in a guy who not only has worked with Mayfield but had success with him. That can’t hurt in their quest to re-sign Mayfield.

Remember, Mayfield’s career had hit rock bottom last year when he was turned loose by the Stinking Panthers. A high-profile NFL analyst was telling anyone who would listen to him that Mayfield was the worst quarterback in the league.

Then, Mayfield and Coen united successfully, which put him on Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht’s radar. And we all know what happened after that.

Below is Rock’s video report on what Mayfield and Wirfs had to say this morning.

    So is Baker happy about Mr Kentucky? I can’t get the vid to play.

  2. Tampa Stadium Says:

    Get him.

  3. chickster Says:

    Baker will never win us a superbowl so who cares we are just waiting for the guy that can period .

  4. Bucfan Says:

    While the SB is the prize, the Bucs won it twice. The season is 17 weeks long. Nothing wrong with having ‘entertaining’ football and winning a playoff game or two.

  5. Not Says:

    Wow, who is Scot Brantley , why are you taking a dig at Orlando ?
    Have to say , don’t really know much about Orlando except theme parks and international drive, but seems to me Lakeland is full of people who have been in florida for 3 or more generations= toothless, take the little school buses, or don’t go to school, grow unripe strawberries.

    On the pro bowl note, why is nobody there !
    Seems like all the media bench warmers only at this place.

  6. Buckeyebuckchuck Says:

    He helped get Baker ready to play with 2 days practice pre-Raiders game. Must have a little juice to him

  7. chickster Says:

    This will be a big year for baker when he was with Cleveland he won a playoff game and the next year they didnt even make the playoffs after all the hype .

  8. D Cone Says:

    Doubt it was the 2-3 record and 4 TD’s and 2 INT in 5 games that put Mayfield on on the Bucs radar. It was Price and a decent QB with limited options.

    Mayfield’s 2024 27 mil Market Value is based on Daniel Jones and Derek Carr Money. Perhaps there is one more team as dumb as the Giants and Saints. Not to mention those Brilliant Browns.

    Mayfield might get it if there is a bidding war for him but I doubt he’ll draw that much interest based on 2022 activity.

  9. BA’s Red Pen Says:

    Not, you’re a Delta Bravo.

  10. Tye Says:

    Well, when none of your peers at the pro level want to work for you, there is always the option of those in the lower level (college) desperate to be brought up to the pros!
    It took long enough to find someone who will take a flyer to work for Bowles…

  11. Buc Fan in CO Says:

    Not says:

    “Wow, who is Scot Brantley“

    You must be new here.

  12. A Bucs Fan Says:

    The Liam hire increases the chance that Mike comes back because it’s the same system.

  13. Steven007 Says:

    Haha, ” who is Scot Brantley?”…

  14. Sue Says:


  15. a-bomb Says:

    Can’t post on a Bucs fan website and not know who Scot Brantley is- your fan card is revoked!

  16. WyomingJoe Says:

    Chickster: Learn more about Mayfield before you make weak assumptions. Mayfield was 11-5 in 2020 and beat Pittsburgh in the first round of the playoffs. Then he came close to beating the Chiefs and making it to the NFC Championship. If his defense played just average that day they would have won.

    THE NEXT YEAR he was injured. He completely tore his labrum and fractured his shoulder. How well would any QB play well with those injuries?


    This year he played well in the playoffs and came VERY CLOSE to making it to the NFC Championship. So don’t embarrass yourself by saying that this guy can’t win a SB.

    How many SB’s has Lamar Jackson or Josh Allen won?!!

    He’s in a stable organization for once and is still young. Give the guy a break already.

  17. Chad Says:

    Chickster, is just a hater and obviously a casual fan to not realize baker fractured his should and tore him labrum and also had multiple dislocations of that shoulder as well. Baker is better than any qb that could be drafted. So just root for the team or don’t, but complaining ain’t gonna get you very far

  18. Elite Vita Says:

    Bucfan, I agree with you. That playoff game was wonderful to watch. Ok, it’s not the Super Bowl but while developing a possible SB TEAM it’s great to have some entertainment. Go Bucs!

  19. Davenport Says:

    Could have some impact, could not. I guess it depends on how much freedom Bowles allows.

    If we’re still pounding the middle on 1st down, you know Coen is deep in the box that Bowles created for him.

  20. Cobraboy Says:

    I agree with Brantley: Orlando is Lakeland with theme parks.

    Some of us oldsters remember Orlando waaay before Disney. It was nothin’ but citrus brokers.

  21. Oneilbuc Says:

    This coming season the Baker Mayfield excuse will be it’s a new offense that he has to learn is the reason why he’s playing bad . Watch and see !! Lol 🤣

  22. Oneilbuc Says:

    Man I wish the bucs would just move on from Baker because I know they’re going to over pay him and we are going to lose our main players !! Why not just start over with Penix.

  23. BucaneroJim Says:

    “Some of us oldsters remember Orlando waaay before Disney. It was nothin’ but citrus brokers.”

    Yep… when Disney got there in 1970, all of Orange county had like 200,000 in population… I was there. Orlando was heavily surround by citrus groves, farming and cattle.

  24. Capt.Tim Says:

    Hey Chickster.
    Try not to be a total Fking clueless smuck, ok.
    If Evans and Otton could catch, we woulda played the niners.

  25. Capt.Tim Says:

    Orlando WISHES it was Lakeland. Ive been all over the world. I chose Lakeland.
    Not Orlando, Not Tampa.
    Although I love both of those cities, and spend alot of time there.

    And you old guys( Im one) gotta catch up with the times. Orlando is a really cool.
    Just hate the traffic

    I hope Baker likes this guy. Im sure the Glazers have involved him in the search.
    If we manage to hold on to Baker- this new OC will have alot of weapons to work with.
    But he better get the Center and Guard position fixed.

    Now- Time to sign Baker, Mike, and Winfield

  26. Dave Pear Says:

    So, is Baker happy about the Mr Kentucky option? If so I’m for it. Otherwise it looks like another Bowles loser move.

  27. BigEd Says:

    Replying to OneilBucs?
    Enough of your BS logic ! If you don’t like the team or the 9th ranked QB
    in passing yards, 4044, 28 TDS + 1 rushing Td & No. 6 QBR, Baker Mayfield,
    why don’t you find another team to bitch about ! I’m proud of our Bucs and
    our QB ! Go Baker Bucs !

  29. Joe Says:

    Orlando is a really cool.
    Just hate the traffic

    Which makes it uncool. Besides, if one is going to roast in the summer, at least be near water.

  30. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Everyone is slurping Baker. Joe, the media, some fans, etc. Overall he played well, but my feeling is that you don’t wine and dine and slurp a guy who has has one so so year. I would rather lose with Trask or a rookie. What a freaking ego!

  31. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Win us a Super Bowl and I’m all on board.

  32. Denny Gay Says:

    Orlando = hell traffic at all hours on all dayd

  33. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Yeah Joe. That’s why there wasn’t much in Orlando until Disney arrived. It’s a freakin sauna in the Summer…with traffic. No thanks.

  34. Rook Says:

    I hate this fan base so much

  35. Kidfloflo Says:

    I love how the “fans” on this site think 2 games away from the super bowl, with a new system to learn and receivers to figure out with a young O-line and a way below average running attack is just so-so!! Ha, unreal…he took us further than alot of so called star qbs

  36. Captain Dan Lawrence Says:

    Just get Mike and Baker signed, I think we can win another division title, and a game or two in the playoffs!! I’m proud of the Job Baker did for us this year, and see No reason to doubt he will play well going forward! LFG!!!

  37. Mike Ralstott Says:

    Not: not not an asshole.

  38. BakerBucs Says:

    Don’t forget if Neal cud catch that end zone int that was another factor to lose that game I love it when they say baker sucks, OMG how much shy of the SB what hasn’t baker done this season hows bout 158.3 perfect passer rating in GB hows bout the player of week hows bout just got the pro bowl perfect passer this week against cj Stroud he keeps doing awesome stats this whole season he had good success in a sh!ty back stabbing x
    Cleveland krudd balls he did wonders for Tampa reputation this year I sure am proud of Tampa this season how the hell xan anyone on this site really have a legit complaint against baker & crew.Appreciate the things u have not what u want to have cause what u want & what u get r 2 different things.

  39. BakerBucs Says:

    Rook says me also second that

  40. BakerBucs Says:

    Show me the TD what u wud rather lose with Trask u did that when Trask had the opportunity to get the TD on the 1 yd line how did that go jackass

  41. BakerBucs Says:

    I wish we wud move on from oneilbuc says adios jackass

  42. Lee Says:

    Nothing says i am not a bucs fan more than

    Saying ” i would rather lose with trask being the qb then win with baker”

    Alsl nothing says im a bonehead any better than that either

    Go bucs!!! Ps please let trask go just so these gator fans can go troll somewhere else

  43. Ron Potter Says:

    I don’t understand the fans who are so sure we can’t win a Super Bowl with Baker Mayfield. Did they forget how Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl? Did they forget how Steve Young played like garbage before joining the 49ers?

  44. Pete Says:

    They’re all working it behind the scenes. Baker wants to stay. Mike too. And they both know we need to sign Winfield this year and Wirfs next year to long term deals. And the kicker too but that’s much easier. The salary cap makes it a zero sum game and they know that. They’ll work it out.
