Carolina Panthers managed to finally secure their first win of the 2022-23 NFL season after defeating the New Orleans Saints. However, while majority of the fan-base takes a sigh of relief, there some who are genuinely concerned about certain abilities of Quarterback – Baker Mayfield.
Mayfield has struggled since his arrivals at Panthers, completing just over 51% of his passes for 550 yards with only three TouchDowns and one interception through the course of three games. What’s even worse? He has been sacked nine times and hasn’t been able to play with the same attitude, style, charisma and swagger he showcased during his stint with the Cleveland Browns.
This has already made the Carolina Panthers get fed up of their latest addition. On one hand, where the team ended their 9-game losing streak. The harsh reality is to improve their offensive strategies and work-rate, starting with Baker Mayfield.
Carolina Panthers fans troll own QB – Baker Mayfield
To bring everyone on the same page, the Carolina Panthers are converting just 27% of their third-downs, which is 30th in the league for now. Is Baker Mayfield to be majorly blamed for that? Surely the home fans think of the same case and they brutally trolled him and showcased their frustration with their QB on social media. Take a look at some of those reactions here-
Talking about the individual stats of Baker Mayfield – he has a meagre Quarterback rating of 45.6 on third downs, completing just 11 of 20 passes for 145 yards with one interception and no TouchDown passes. This showcases just who tough it has been for him to fit into the style and system of the Carolina Panthers.
Summarizing it up, at the moment – Baker Mayfield is one of the worst Quarterbacks in the league. The important question is that whether this is the beginning of Baker Mayfield’s worst-ever season in the league? Or can the star QB change his outlook in front of home fans, in the coming games? Remains to be seen.
