I think it's one reason he struggled so much against Utah and Boise. He hadn't practiced much - if at all - in the weeks leading up to those games so his timing was way off. Not to mention his injury.
Riley is the starter, he should get the majority of the reps. I hope and bet most coaches give their starters the majority or even "all the snaps" on most teams.
Now, if you want to argue Riley shouldn't be the starter, that's a different argument.

FANTASTIC moment at 1:10 (as pointed out by B. Gurney). Bronco is asked if Riley is ready, Bronco affirms, and someone girl let's out a giant "YES!" Bronco looks like he wants to punch someone in the face.
Sounds like BlueisBetter was right, the call was sent in. Coaches realized they could run the clock out and Taysom didn't look over again when they were trying to switch the call. Bronco lays all the blame on the coaches and says they need to make communication more clear for the players.
