Freeman Team & League Status “Disappointing”June 30th, 2013
Tampa Bay Times columnist and WDAE-AM 620 Sports Page co-host Tom Jones finds it very troublesome for the Bucs that Josh Freeman was not named to the NFL Network annual Top-100 list of current players, as voted by NFL players themselves.
Jones said over the WDAE airwaves Friday that it’s “disappointing” Freeman isn’t among the top tier of players on his team or among the upper third or so of quarterbacks in the NFL. Co-host Rick Stroud thinks Jones is out of line, as you’ll hear in the heated discussion below.
Joe, however, largely agrees with Jones for a simple reason that was not mentioned on the radio: Freeman was voted the 83rd best player in the NFL after the 2010 season. That means Freeman’s peers acknowledge his regression since leading the Bucs to a 10-6 record and only tossing six picks in 2010. Whether you’re a Freeman lover or not, that’s “disappointing.” (You can catch the entire Sports Page audio below.)
