Does Baker Mayfield put the Panthers in the hunt for a Wild Card spot? The Panthers added, who I think is a serviceable quarterback in Baker, I think he can win you games. He can sling the football and the Panthers have down field threats. So, how far can he carry them?
They play the Browns week 1, so I think we can chalk that up as a win. Baker in a revenge game is gonna be electric, obviously take the Panthers spread there. If I’m Matt Rhule, I’d come up with a way to make Baker hate every team they face this year. Remind him that every team they play didn’t wanna trade for him. They didn’t believe in him, Baker loves it when people don’t believe in him. Get the home crowd to boo him, it’s do or die this year for Matt Rhule, so somehow kept his job.
Baker Mayfield joins an offense that is loaded with outside threats in D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, and Terrace Marshall, and of course Christian McCaffery. This offense is primed for a good season. They should be able to win 10 games this year with that much talent. I’m excited for Baker and his new start.
