The Panthers were part of a big phenomenon when they got their hands on Baker Mayfield. The offseason tumbled entirely after the Mayfield’s trade to Carolina reports came up. Many thought it to be a big move amidst his troubles with the Browns. However, Mayfield’s new team has failed to win since the regular season. Even Shannon Sharpe sees no difference in the squad despite having a new quarterback.

Would the Panthers not benefit from a new quarterback?

Shannon Sharpe also said, “Are you telling me Sam Donald couldn’t be 0-2? Absolutely he could. He has the worst QBR in all the NFL. You mean to tell me Sam Darnold couldn’t do that? Of course, he could. Baker Mayfield has played good one quarter in eight, the fourth quarter of game one. Go look at that first, second, third quarter against Cleveland.”

“Go look at the totality of the game against the Giants and you tell me you see something special. It’s not. I’ve been telling you for the longest time. He ain’t what the elephant left on the showground, and we know what the elephant left. But that’s not the here nor the there this season,” He added.

The HOF TE also called out his co-host, who claimed that Baker Mayfield’s would make the Panthers a better team. He then said the Panthers would be in a worse position than they were in the past season.
