Agreed. As a matter of fact, I think his rookie year was excellent. He was really snakebitten early and surely had room to grow, but by the end of the season you could not have asked for much more.

After such an impressive debut, his second year started slowly again, and midseason the team was distracted with Footers aging captaincy and Foppas final return attempt drama. I think there was an injury in there as well. That's alot to deal with as a 19 year old savior of the franchise. At any rate, his second was unremarkable if nothing else.

Last year was rough all the way around.

He certainly deserves more time before he is banished to the could-have-been list.
