Because I still don't think he does. Yeah, he's getting the box checked for the INT's but half of those have been on receivers or (today) an O-Lineman getting blown up and a shovel pass getting picked, counting as an INT. The guy played very well last year. He didn't just forget how to play.
I've used this example, a few times now...Russell Wilson (Wilson at the beginning) & Peyton Manning were not very good in their sophomore seasons. Baker will be fine. Will he be great? I'm starting to doubt it but I think he will end up being a top 10-15 QB in the league.
What's troubling me more is that OBJ seems to have forgotten how to get open. He faced double teams and had a worse QB in NY and still put up numbers.
What’s happened is teams have adjusted to the man and he doesn’t think the game well enough. You can see this a really talented team but Mayfield doesn’t seem to be very proactive causing him to be a turnover machine.
I think the bigger problem is only 6 TDs through 7 games. With that receiving corps and a damn good back in Chubb, he should be around 2 a game.
