Shaun King Says Josh Freeman Needs A ShrinkSeptember 27th, 2012
Shaun King, one of three quarterbacks to lead the Bucs to the NFC Championship, has put on his Sigmund Freud hat and determined that Josh Freeman needs to spend time on a couch with a sports psychologist.
No, it’s not related to Freeman’s love of guns and snakes, it’s because Freeman, King says, has “never been anywhere where they really won And it just seems like in real stressful, big-time moments in games, like he just seems a little lost. Like it doesn’t seemed like he’s as tuned in and focused as he should be.”
During the interview on the Ron and Ian Show on WDAE-AM 620, King explained that even though Freeman was money late in games in 2010, that doesn’t apply because Freeman didn’t have expectations and pressure on him that season. King says Freeman getting flummoxed in the two-minute offense is evidence of a problem. King also cites that Drew Brees uses the services of shrink to stay focused.
Here’s the entire King interview below, which focuses a lot on various aspects of Freeman’s game.
