Ray Didinger of CSNPhilly.com talks about how the Eagles found a quarterback in third-round pick, rookie Nick Foles, who Didinger lauded for finding a way to win under pressure yesterday. Unfortunately, the Bucs’ franchise quarterback couldn’t do the same with a far lesser obstacle.
Its like when the Rays face a AAA pitcher thats just been called up. Usually they will get shut down. Doesn’t mean that pitcher is gonna go on and be the next David Price. Same for any QB that puts up big numbers on this Bucs defense.
“Unfortunately, the Bucs’ franchise quarterback couldn’t do the same with a far lesser obstacle.”
I think it’s bullsh!t that the Joe’s find it necessary to continually point to, or insinuate, that Freeman – in some way – can’t get it done. In many articles all by themselves, or referenced in other articles just to, what appears to be, get a dig in on Freeman.
Tell me how our defense failing us is Freeman’s fault.
Tell me how our DB’s not getting it done is Freeman’s fault.
You know, sooner or later, the defense is going to have to bail out the offense. The offense, under Freeman’s guidance, has been covering for the defense all season.
