Couldn’t watch the game last night. Sounds like Winovich was a stud. Meyers too. How about Stidham? The numbers looked good and I caught a few highlights but of course, they’re highlights. Overall was he good?

Anyone playing themselves off the team? Anyone making the case that they just HAVE to be kept?

Stidham wasn’t as sharp as he was against the Lions (so I gather). He threw a few balls that probably should have been picked – one of which he just held too long and stared down his receiver. He also almost got one of his receivers (Izzo) crippled by lofting one across the middle instead of slinging it.

But Stidham also had some nice throws and good scrambles. He seems to know how to use his feet to get some extra yards and when to slide. All in all, some good and bad.

Agree. That said, more good than bad given he is a rookie. I loved seeing him lead that long GW drive at the end there capped with a nice back shoulder 23 yd TD pass

As a rookie making his 2nd start with very little other than Myers(who will be on the 53) I thought he made some great plays. Every quarterback (even Brady/Brees/Rodgers) makes throws that should have been picked and I can’t count the number of times Brady hung Gronk out to dry - it’s just party of running the TE seam route in that coverage. He was accurate, timely and made a perfect back shoulder throw for a TD.

He will benefit a lot of from sitting behind Brady and learning over 2 years but he’s already looked much better than most rookie QBs

Tough to judge guys in preseason but Meyers already looks like a reliable vet out there. Not the most physically gifted guy but good hands, good routes, and being in the right place go a long way in this league, especially as a guy who won't be asked to beat the opponents' best cover corner. Plenty have excelled in this league with a jack-of-all-trades skillset at this position.

The QBs have looked very comfortable throwing the ball his way. You don't want to put too much stock in a strong camp play or strong preseason play but so far he has excelled at every opportunity. Can't ask for more from a UDFA at this point. You never know, but he doesn't look like just a Patrick Pass August All-Star to me. He also happens to be a good fit with the rest of the WR group as a more underneath option.
