New England Patriots QB Jarrett Stidham drew praise from Chris Simms of Pro Football Talk when he was compared to a former Dallas Cowboys quarterback. ‘First off, I loved (Stidham) coming out of college,’ Simms said. ‘I saw a lot of him in preseason last year, and loved the way he looked. Really, when you look at him, there’s nothing to say or look at him physically and go, ‘Oh, there’s a weakness to his football game.’ He reminds me a little of Tony Romo. He’s a very pure thrower of the football. He’s got great mechanics, he’s natural that way. He’s smart, and we know he’s being well-schooled up there in New England.
‘He doesn’t have as strong of an arm as Tom Brady, but it’s not far off – it’s right there in that range. It’s a really good arm, and he’s a good athlete. Not an athlete that’s going to run for a ton of yards, but can move around the pocket and extend plays that way. That’s what I’m excited about with Jarrett Stidham: He’s got great feel. He’s a natural at playing the quarterback position, let alone, he’s got skills that can really shine and stand out as well.’Boston.com - Christopher Price
