After all, people just want to see their team get better.
A GM is going to be criticized no matter what; it goes with the territory.
No, I think the big difference here, is that Reed is not the top rated safety available, Nnamdi was the top CB.
No one was signing the other top CBs before Nnamdi, Ike Taylor was still out there, Jjoseph was still out there, & there was someone else.
As soon as we signed Jjoseph, it seemed the dominoes started to fall & the other corners started signing.
This time, the fans aren't even expecting the top safety, they'd have been happy with Huff, Landry and a few others who were already signed.... Quin. We're giving Reed, & even Woodson if it comes to that, the benefit of the doubt, even though they're older than dirt (apparently there's a bunch of 34 year old dirt out there).
So, I don't think it's impatient, all the decent talent is being signed while we wait.
