It’s Still All About No. 5November 4th, 2012
Joe’s as fired up as the next fan by Doug Martin, the Bucs’ front seven, legitimate stud wide receivers and the New Schiano Order.
But Joe hasn’t lost sight of the resurrection of Josh Freeman and how the team really is all about No. 5, as Raheem Morris used to say.
Freeman hits the season’s halfway mark with 16 touchdowns and five interceptions, a far cry from the disaster of 2011, and pretty damn good in its own right. Today in Oakland, Freeman was scrambling smart and he made his share of flawless throws.
No, Freeman is far from perfect. He’s not yet elite. His completion percentage still hovers around 56 percent. But the progression is there, and he seems to be in better hands than in past years.
The sky is the limit for Freeman, and Bucs fans should be damn happy he’s ascending into higher altitudes.
