Baker Mayfield Injuries
If Baker Mayfield hadn’t decided, after throwing a careless interception against the Houston Texans, to then try and tackle the player, then we all might be talking about a lot more positive things in regard to Mayfield right now. I was at that game too, and to watch the play live and see the force that both players went at each other when Mayfield tried bringing the player down was so bad on the part of Mayfield. The judgment on Mayfield’s part believing that he could bring the player down was just bad. I can recognize his frustration with the bad throw, but to get injured on a decision like that was just stupid. He hurt himself badly and the team’s season has been a mess ever since.
The fact that since that point we have talked about his injuries to death and the season has been so miserable it’s really set the unwelcoming tone of the year. You add in the fact that Mayfield’s coach doesn’t have the guts to sit him for the rest of the year is ridiculous and really has everyone second-guessing what type of coach and leader Stefanski is moving forward.
