I think the same can be said of Ben. I think you'll see Hitch push Ben in the direction to hone his skills and to learn to use them more. I don't think Hitch will discourage the use of his fists, but he will teach Ben when to pick his spots. I always thought that Hitch was rough with young players but I'm beginning to see more and more that Hitch is actually very adept at dealing with young players.

You must have been or are a player. I think you've hit the nail on the head. With Hitch at the helm and Eager's work ethic the nay sayers are going to become yea sayers.
Patience is a virtue.
