Sam is a seasoned NFL veteran, period. In game #6 this season he will have already played for an amount of time equal to the length of the average NFL career.
Stop with the excuses....and FYI, you only make him look worse by suggesting "he's still a rookie" after he's already played 3 full NFL seasons --- calls his intellect into question.
He's already been given a "fresh start" and a "fair chance" by the only people who matter -- Tepper & Rhule. (and "given" is the operative term, handed to him on a silver platter! NO competition for Sam and his fragile psyche!!)
In the meantime "we" don't owe him anything. "We" can hope for the best for him while simultaneously having and expressing an opinion about how he may or may-not perform...including, not not limited to, "bashing him".
America is a great place, free country it is...
