What wrong with letting them redshirt? Nothing. People are impatient, that's the problem. You rarely draft an 18 year old in this day and age expecting them to start in their first or second season. PJ obviously needs to control his maturity issues. We drafted two potential stars. Their just not going to be stars this season. Anyone who watched the Summer League should be highly impressed with the skill and development they saw from Hairston and Vonleh. People get upset and impatient when we draft a player who isn't going to be an immediate impact player.
Yes we live in a microwave era and this is a football forum. Fans here just need to addin what happens with baseball/hockey rooks, rather than football model alone. Both have skills rare skills, but it may take a couple years to show. Given there are 48 mins per game( - ot ) , lance should get 30+, hendo 10 ( sg only) and neal 8 ........ well no need for PJ unless you need to build a house of bricks. Vonleh, is not a 18 year old, he's already a man. Geez with all the growth hormones put into foods, between him, kevin " special k", and the 300 lbs high school OL these kids skip the teens years. If each put in real work, could be one special draft class.
I had to leave the restaurant biz, due to impatient people. Many years ago a change happen, people went to sit down restaurants and wanted fast food. It just bugged the shiit out of me, you had to turn 8 min tickets (unless well done/special orders), cause people wanted it NOW and corp had to apdat. So then came the frozen crap and cooking nearly everything, warm and serve. Yuck...... if you want fast food go to chick-fila. I understand this during lunch times, I had a problem when it became dinner too. Now even five star place are doing similar tactics. No idea what happen to relaxing and enjoying a nice non-frozen/warmed dish. O the horrors... I mean joys of being a old soul in this generation.
