    An update from the little info we have from people in the know:

    Positive



    Louis Riddick was a fan of Stidham last preseason. He claims he’s not ready to start but the pats like his upside.



    Matt Miller has stated multiple times in his scouting notebooks that the pats are not looking at QBs in the draft in part to how they view Stidham.

    Negative



    I do not have a membership to Bedard’s website but he’s said that the pats do not view him as ready. Anyone that is a member could elaborate further.

    Charlie Weis

    Can’t find a quote but 98.5 reiterated that Weis stated he has sources that Stidham is not ready/not the guy.

    Was gonna say exactly the same thing ;-)

    All joking aside, Stidham was definitely highly thought of going into his last year of college. As the great draft guru BaconGrundleCandy states above, his offensive line was quit shoddy his last year. If I may add a key factor to his rough last college season, he lost RB Kerryon Johnson to the 2018 draft. That was a HUGE loss for him. Johnson was such a key player in the offense the prior year. They had virtually no running game. Therefore the play action suffered big time.

    I'm not taking the blame away from Stidham, he had his moments where he was to blame, but he really had a supporting cast that wasn't anything to be excited about. Also, there was a ton of dropped passes by Auburn receivers that year.

    My take on Stidham, is we got a 1st round talent in the 4th round. There is no denying his talent. It's all about cultivating that talent, and his own will and drive to succeed. In the college games I watched, he was very impressive, in the preseason games, I thought he was the best Pat's rookie I've seen since Jimmy G, maybe even better.

    Who are Stifham’s doubters? Maybe it’s a guy who is in another thread clamoring for them to trade for Blake Bortles, Marcus Mariota, Nick Foles, and/or....(wait for it)...Andrew Luck!

    You see the irony here, right? You’re the only one on here absolutely selling selling your soul for some shtty QB like Bortles or unrealistic QB like Luck, and then you reference Stidham’s doubters. Lolololololololol.

    I am choosing to believe Weis that they want Stidham to sit for a year.

    This is what it's all about in a nutshell. All the "he's not ready" B.S. is just that -- he never will be "ready" until he actually plays and gets experience under fire taking all the usual lumps along the way. Just like Brady did. Just like Bledsoe did. Garoppolo, etc. You can't expect a guy like this to be great out of the chute; maybe competent by late in the season and maybe pretty damn good by 2021. No "bridge" veteran is going to make a difference or is needed.

    Yep, the kid is quite talented, with really the major known concern being whether he can handle pressure.

    There is only one way to find out and riding the bench another year isn't going to improve things.

    Brady's pick 6 against Miami might have been a worse read/throw.

    Sample sizes and all...
