QB is the toughest position in sports. Fact. Brady was the best but drafted in 6 th round. This means his development was paramount. Lots of QBs get drafted but follow different paths that get them to starting nfl football games. Garoppolo was backup for 4 years. Brissett less time. Mixed results. Stidham is now in the position to follow the Brady blueprint. Bench and clipboard for 1 year. Then get in the game and start developing in real time in live games. In other words. It worked for Brady. The extended bench time doesn't really help does it? The blueprint can be followed exactly if they want. Hoyer starts 2 games goes 0-1, then throws 28 passes week 2 and is replaced by stidham. Haha.. Discuss..
