Baker Mayfield led the Los Angeles Rams to a comeback win in his debut at quarterback and many think this will be just the opportunity he needs to rekindle his career, but Doug still isn’t sold. While he agrees that last night’s game proves he has the intangibles to lead a team, he is missing the actual tangible skills to be an effective NFL quarterback over the long haul. He has all the desire and the heart he needs, but not the arm.

Doug Gottlieb: “He has all of the intangibles, he doesn’t have the tangibles. He doesn’t have the goods. He just doesn’t have the arm or the legs. If you don’t have the arm you gotta have the legs, and he doesn’t have either.”
