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 through five games. You’d think that’d be bad enough, but Mayfield can’t even stop taking hits even when it’s not game day.

“Mayfield’s fall since the end of the 2020 season has been a shocking one to say the least. It’s also fair to say that the Panthers probably didn’t expect the trade for Mayfield to work out as poorly as it has,” the publication wrote about the former face of the city.

To make the situation even worse, the headline reads, “NFL quarterback power rankings after Week 5: Baker Mayfield hits rock bottom.”

Just a brutal shot at the former starting quarterback of the Browns.

Baker Mayfield is off to a brutal start in 2022.

As fans know, the split between Cleveland and Mayfield wasn’t pretty, and apparently one of the largest publications in the region decided to throw a little salt on the wounds for Mayfield.

Having said that, there’s plenty of justification for Mayfield getting roasted. Through five games, he’s thrown for 962 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. He’s 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, doesn’t have a high opinion of the QB.
