NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson is getting crushed for what he said about Baker Mayfield this Tuesday. 

The Mayfield slander is sometimes warranted, but this time it's probably gone a bit too far. 

Robinson said on Tuesday that Mayfield doesn't have one of the top-64 arms in the National Football League. 

"(Baker Mayfield) might not be one of the top 𝟲𝟰 arms in the National Football League," he said. 

Baker Mayfield has his weaknesses - arm strength isn't really one of them. 

This is just a bad take by Robinson. There's no other way to put it. 

"He’s top 10, maybe top 5. Madden had him 3rd going into last season. Hand cannon, not really a debate. Distance and velocity, right near the top. Maybe this dude was talking about Minshew or somebody else, lost his way?," wrote JSS. 

"That’s 100% BS and I’ve always liked mike rob. There’s isn’t more than 20 qbs I’d take over mayfield, let’s be honest," a fan wrote. 

"you can say he’s inaccurate, no pocket awareness, no mobility, slow but to use arm strength as to why he isn’t good and to say keenum has a stronger arm is just insane. literally, arm strength is the one thing he’s great at. ha. your credibility is gone," wrote Brandon Grace. 

At this point, Mayfield has a dozen chips on his shoulder ahead of the 2022 season. 

We're expecting big things out of the new Carolina Panthers quarterback later this fall.
