So where's all this playing time Yates has had to show what he's learned?
You want to check the records again.
Yates played in 3 games in 2012, and 2 games in 2013.
The additional learning comes from being the second string QB who would see some snaps with the first string each week and all the reps with the second string instead of running the scout team.
By starting 6 full games in 2012, Yates got plenty of times with the first string already.
While Case was busy running the scout team for over a year, Yates had the time to learn and take mental reps within Kubiak's offense.
Coming in those second half situTions, he would see more backups from the opponents than normally.
Those are times to learn like Schaub did in Atlanta, when he was the backup.
The games are supposed to be easier, yet he still made mistakes after mistakes.
Did you listen or read what he had to say about last year?
He said he blew his chance.
