Kareem Hunt Sr. followed the trend set by Odell Beckham Sr. as the father of the Browns running back sounded off on Mayfield in a Facebook rant, which lacked punctuation, during Sunday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.

The elder Hunt pointed to how Mayfield’s injuries have made him scared to throw the ball and how the team should have won the game after picking off Lamar Jackson four times. He also argued that he is not like the elder Beckham, adding that he does not plan on posting any videos.

The posts appear to have been deleted by Monday.

Unlike Beckham’s father, Hunt Sr. was not complaining that Mayfield was detrimental to his son’s performance, although the younger Hunt did not have a great game on Sunday, either, in his first game back after missing am onth with a calf injury.

Instead, he seemed to argue that Mayfield was hurting the team in general.

The Browns quarterback completed 18 of 37 pass attempts for 247 yards and a touchdown on Sunday and had one turnover via fumble.

The Browns, who had Super Bowl expectations heading into the season, dropped to 6-6 and are now tied in last in the AFC North with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

While Mayfield’s play, and health, continue to be of concern, head coach Kevin Stefanski scoffed when asked about a possible change at quarterback after the game.

“No,” he said, per NFL.com. “Let me ask you a question, why would we do that? We’re not doing that.”
