I am genuinely happy for Baker. He had the most important game of his career last night, literally balled out on two days notice to show that he can still play.
I am also still totally fine we let him go because we need to start fresh. Sure, he looked like trash under Rhule and McAdoo. It’s really an indictment of the offensive system and hopefully highlights how important it is to have a great head coach and the right offense. So the narrative is that it was a bad environment and a bad fit and that’s true.
However, I still think Baker has several limitations that were exposed that indicate he will never be more than an average QB in this league. I hope we can do better in the upcoming draft.
