That is not always the case. We have had guys start from day 1, we have had young players who were injured and could not play right away but when healthy they got it. Barry Church showed a lot and gave the coaches faith in him so that they choose to go with him as opposed to finding someone with more experience.
Fans want to see a certain player in many cases their pet cat and yet they are not out there on the practice field, they are not in the class rooms they don't know Jack about where that player is in terms of being ready. So when coaches don't play them some get upset over something they have no clue about other than their own curiosity and it does not work that way.
