I won't say he isn't ready. But, I think Sacco shouldn't throw him into the fire so soon either. Confidence can be lost really quickly if he does. Put him out there when he can play to his strength and we'll see what exactly he's capable of. ON THE FLIP SIDE: We don't have a ton of options on defense either.
