100% agree, when you look at past qb's who are now elite, his numbers look good. Mahommes has spoiled us thinking suddenly that is what a 2nd through 4th year qb is supposed to look. His numbers are almost un heard of, Baker isnt Mahommes, doesnt mean he cant be very, very good though. Will he be, who knows, but he has looked pretty good all things considered, not great, but pretty good,.Here's the problem:
Baker is a capable, good NFL QB. The bigger question to me is can he lead a team to a Super Bowl win? I'm not sure yet. I think he's leaving SOME plays on the field, but I think ultimately he's doing more good than bad. You can point to a few throws and positions where he is a less than optimal QB. But I also see an elite QB in some other areas.
I disagree that Baker cannot make anticipation throws. I don't think he's good at anticipation throws that require good timing or quick post snap reads. That's something that can change with more time in the system and quality coaching.
I think we'll know, mostly, by the end of the year, if Baker will be worth his 2nd contract. And I feel like it's trending towards he'll be worth it.
