Cleveland.com roasts Baker Mayfield – OutKick
Baker Mayfield just can’t stop taking losses these days.
The Panthers QB is currently out with an ankle injury, and Carolina has crawled and stumbled to a 1-4 record in five games. You’d think that would be bad enough, but Mayfield can’t even stop taking hits even when it’s not game day.
The latest comes from Cleveland.com. The former Mayfield team’s home publication ranked the Oklahoma Heisman winner last in its QB power rankings for NFL starting passers released Thursday morning.
“Mayfield’s downfall since the end of the 2020 season has been shocking to say the least. It’s also fair to say that the Panthers probably didn’t expect the Mayfield trade to go as badly as it did. ‘did,’ the post wrote of the former face of the town.
To make matters worse, the headline reads, “NFL Quarterback Rankings After Week 5: Baker Mayfield Hits Rock Bottom.”
Just a hard shot on the former Browns starting quarterback.
Baker Mayfield is off to a rough start in 2022.
As fans know, the split between Cleveland and Mayfield wasn’t pretty, and apparently one of the area’s biggest publications decided to throw some salt on Mayfield’s wounds.
That said, there are plenty of reasons for Mayfield to get roasted. In five games, he had 962 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. He also only completed 54.9% of his passes.
Mayfield currently has the lowest completion percentage and QBR of his career by substantial margins.
Where will Mayfield and the Panthers go from here? It’s impossible to know for sure, but clearly Cleveland.com doesn’t think highly of the QB.
