Stidham looked promising against 3rd stringers, running a vertical slice of our offense into the usual preseason defenses. There is also no need to use hyperboles as so far performed above expectations but was neither terrific in the game nor consistently through the preseason or camp. If he were you'd not be able to escape the media hype but instead its mostly crickets. Point is making him the backup is playing russian roulette with your season over the 53rd roster spot. Also for every anectode you post about successful QBs there are at least 5 more that present the opposite.
