Experienced Starter w/First Big Contract
Why? It’s possible that overall he was viewed as the worst option but there were several situations where they wanted to pull Cam from a blow out or were in “**** it let’s try anything more”. It’s not mutually exclusive.I can buy him not being good enough for the position but the idea that the team would become a complete debacle if he started is absurd. If that was true on any level he does not come in relief of Cam during multiple games.
The signs with Stidham were there for awhile. From going to third string, not getting the start over Hoyer vs KC, McDaniels coming out and saying he knew where Stidham was in his development, the heavy resistance even when Cam was struggling. It really feels like they just didn’t think he was the guy
