Stidham had an opportunity in training camp and didn't seize it
That is not really true. He was the best QB the first two days then got injured and lost reps because of it and after that he was too far behind and couldn’t make up ground. I am not saying he would have won the job because I think Bill told Cam he would be the starter all along when he signed him.
Honestly, depending on our situation at that moment of course, I would give Stidham the last two games of the season. I want to see how Stidham plays with a full week of preparation. I want to see if he can at least be a decent back up that can win games if our starter gets injured.
