Baker Mayfield On Sluggish Start To Life In Carolina
The Baker Mayfield redemption arc is taking longer to get going than either he or the Carolina Panthers can afford.
Baker Mayfield is 1 – 2 in his first two starts and despite Sunday’s win against the Saints, he hasn’t set the world alight.
Baker Mayfield has only completed 53.6 percent of his passes for 380 yards. He’s had two touchdowns, one interception and a passer rating of 79.5.

“Not good enough,” Mayfield said Wednesday. “I only care about winning, no matter what my stats are. Haven’t taken care of the ball well enough. That’s pretty much the only stat I care about.
“I’ve got to command this group better. I have to lead better, I have to make sure everybody’s on the same page to where we are executing at a much higher level. That’s the biggest disappointment for me is that hasn’t shown yet. So I take full ownership for that as an offense.”
“We’ve shown our potential in little stints,” Mayfield said. “We’ve shown flashes. We have to be more consistent. You can see the explosive plays that can happen when we just do our job and we string a couple good plays together.”
