And the aftermath of the Browns’ 27-25 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars was no exception, with Mayfield drawing on TV fan favourite in Ron Swanson of
“Parks and Recreation” when requested about a few missed throws he made throughout Cleveland’s newest win.
“There’s solely two issues I hate greater than lacking throws and that is mendacity and skim milk,” Mayfield stated. “And skim milk’s simply water mendacity about being milk.”
Swanson — who was performed by Nick Offerman on the NBC comedy that ran from 2009-2015 — echoed an analogous sentiment through the 17th episode of the fifth season, which was titled “Partridge.”
“Tom and April have been glorious witnesses in my protection,” Swanson stated. “Sadly each single phrase out of their mouths was a lie. There is just one factor I hate greater than mendacity. Skim milk, which is water that’s mendacity about being milk.”
This is not the primary popular culture reference Mayfield has made this season. Earlier this yr, the No. 1 choose of the 2018 NFL Draft referenced Will Ferrell’s Ricky Bobby from “Talladega Nights” when referred to his workforce as “large, bushy, American successful machines,” whereas final week, he paid homage to Snoop Dogg when he stated that Cleveland’s protection acquired “funky on the sector, and similar to an previous batch of collard greens, they performed properly collectively.”
As for the story behind Mayfield’s popular culture references, that is still unclear. However as long as the Browns maintain successful, do not count on them to cease anytime quickly.
