“Josh Freeman Is Our Quarterback”February 21st, 2013
Moments ago the leader of the New Schiano Order gave a huge vote of confidence to Josh Freeman and threw cold water on the notion that the Bucs are eager to bring in competition to challenge for his job.
“Josh Freeman is our quarterback,” Schiano said from the NFL Scouting Combine podium.
Joe will have more later on Schiano’s subtle yet clear backtracking on the “competition” front, something Schiano himself put out there right after the close of the 2012 season.
As Joe’s written before, the whole notion of “competition” for Freeman makes no sense from a regime — and rockstar general manager Mark Dominik dating back to the 2010 offseason — that made sure the was no competition for Freeman. Current backup Dan Orlovsky didn’t even take snaps with the first team in practice.
