I see JJ the same way. He has fantastic ability, but he needs to grow and mature...mentally and physically.
I am glad we aren't giving up on him, because if he matures, (as Tiki has done), we will have a fantastic combo with him and MB3.
I have the exact same thoughts, considering how Tiki used to be injured often early in his career and wasn't considered a full time back, till last 3-4 years now.
