Greg Rosenthal of NFL.com ranked every quarterback to start in 2021 and Cleveland Browns starter Baker Mayfield continues to be consistently inconsistent
2021 was a campaign to forget for Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns. A Week 2 shoulder injury wound up derailing his season and that, of course, led to the Browns missing the playoffs and failing to post their first back-to-back winning seasons since returning to the NFL.
Of course, there are those who think the injury was the only thing that slowed Mayfield down this season, and naturally, there are those who think it only exacerbated an already glaring issue – which was Mayfield’s struggles with accuracy and decision-making. In ranking all 62 quarterbacks to start a game in 2021, Rosenthal has Mayfield at No. 25 which is just one spot ahead of Tyler Huntley, a reserve quarterback who started as a rookie for the Baltimore Ravens.
Baker Mayfield: Consistently inconsistent
One thing that really stands out in Rosenthal’s ranking is that Baker Mayfield has been easily the most consistently inconsistent quarterback in the NFL. In even years, he has been a beast.
