If Cam plays mediocre football and doesn’t lose the job to Stidham, then that’s a pretty good sign the coaching staff doesn’t think Stidham is good enough/isn’t the guy they can ride with.I think coming into this season we had 2 scenarios:
1) Cam plays well, Patriots make the playoffs, but then unfortunately, the Patriots were unlikely to pay him FA QB so he'd be a one-and-done and we still wouldn't know what we have in Stidham (maybe the coaching staff already knows, but I find that hard to understand)
2) Cam doesn't play well, is replaced by Stidham, and we find out what we have in Stidham before next season.
At this point, it's hard to see the Patriots making the playoffs - and even if they did, Cam doesn't look good enough to lead them out of the first round. I shudder at scenario #3 - which is mediocre Cam blocking Stidham all season, leaving, and then we have another offseason of not knowing what the Patriots should do at QB.
