Bucs With Freeman “Don’t Have A Shot”September 25th, 2013
Bucs rock star general manager was consulted by Bucs commander Greg Schiano, before the second-year Bucs coach made the call to bench franchise quarterback Josh Freeman for third round pick, rookie Mike Glennon.
That’s the information typed by Jim Corbett of USA Today.
In fact, Dominik noted that Freeman had regressed so terribly, he was a noose around the Bucs’ chances to win.
“The main thing for us was the performance of the team the last nine games was 1-8 and that’s tough,” Dominik told USA TODAY Sports Wednesday. “He hasn’t played well. That’s a part of it. If you don’t have a quarterback in this league, you don’t have a shot. We felt like we’d seen enough of what we needed to see.”
Freeman, who led the NFL in inaccuracy, at a galling 45 completion percentage, apparently had lost either the support or the trust in the locker room.
Dominik also noted in the article linked above that the rest of the season and Glennon’s play will give the Bucs an idea how to proceed at the position for the 2014 season.
