Freeman Is Cut By The Giants

May 30th, 2014

josh freeman 1224aJosh Freeman’s freefall has another notch on its belt.

This afternoon, the Bucs’ former franchise quarterback was cut by the New York Giants.

It sure is a lousy sign to get cut in May from a team with a starting QB recovering from a serious injury and questionable talent at the position.

What happened?

Joe hopes for Freeman’s sake it wasn’t related to off-field issues, such as his sleepy, leaky ways during his final days in Tampa.

Freeman supporters have to find it troubling that Freeman was ousted from the Giants, where he no doubt arrived with the endorsement of former Tom Coughlin coaches Mike Sullivan and/or John McNulty, who worked with Freeman in Tampa last year.

Is the CFL next for Freeman?

    Go #redblacks!

  2. SteveK Says:

    MG8 the QB of the future, lucky that Schisno got us a QB, and that we didn’t extend Freeman.

  3. A-Train40 Says:

    Still can’t believe that idiot Schiano cut this guy, clearly he’s incredibly talented and was just mismanaged by Schiano’s inept coaching staff.

  4. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    sleepy and coming in late are the least of Freeman’s problems, I am sure that if Joe asked around he could quickly find out the other issues.

  5. Nick Says:

    Shame, I remember watching him in 2010 and was absolutely ecstatic. Thought we really had something. Kid had talent, then he torpedoes himself, not that the bucs falling into the sewer really helped.

  6. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    If you think that I’m pointing and laughing at you as you read this, then I probably am.

  7. SteveK Says:

    Three QBs survived the cut:
    Eli Manning
    Ryan Nassib
    Curtis Painter

    You know it’s never good when Nassib and Painter are better options at QB.

  8. Jim Walker Says:

    He stopped caring about football. He has made enough money to last him a lifetime if he is careful and lives modestly.

  9. SteveK Says:

    Next stop…..

    Tampa Bay Storm

  10. Joe Says:

    You know it’s never good when Nassib and Painter are better options at QB.

    Nah-ah-ah-ah-ah!

  11. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    ” if he is careful and lives modestly.”

    What likely stopped the caring sure ain’t cheap….:nod nod wink wink:

  12. SteveK Says:

    Freeman is the “Benjamin Button” version of Kurt Warner.

    From “franchise” QB to stocking grocery shelves.

  13. Cough Fan Says:

    I would actually feel bad for the guy if he didn’t quit on the team but you reap what you sew. Thank you Schiano for ridding us of that garbage.

    – LONG LIVE THE MGM!!!

  14. abdominal snowman Says:

    Joe can’t allow anonymous, second hand character attacks on public figures. Ultimately, Joe is responsible for what is written here. Not you. To that point, Joe can’t buy that in this day and age there are no smoking guns that have come out on Freeman to corroborate all he’s accused of. Joe will believe these allegations against Freeman when there’s a shred of evidence –Joe

    At least this years fall was from the first rung of the ladder!

  16. robert8 Says:

    no next stop rehab, then rehab, then either the Courtney campell or gandy, whichever has the least urine under the ledge.

    this is a GREAT day for TAMPA BAY. redemption is here.

  17. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    The Ginger Cannon never sleeps, and he never leaks.

  18. Patrick in VA Says:

    Wasn’t Painter the guy who led the charge on the Colts’ woeful season after which they were able to land the Andrew Luck pick?

  19. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Freeman is history, gone, departed, terminated, through, finished, vanished, elsewhere, SYONARA, ADIOS, AU-REVOIR, Auf WIEDERSHEN, CHEERIO, ADJO, ANTIO, DO SVIDANIYA, HASTA LA VISTA, BYE-BYE…. SO LONG Of course, Schiano would say CAIO!!!

    Lovie would say “No Comment”

  20. SteveK Says:

    Patrick in VA,

    You know it.

  21. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    I don’t expect a few people to post in this thread.

  22. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    I told all of you, that one day we will look back and see Coach Schiano as the hero that save this Franchise. He got rid of a lot of Dominick’s quitters, But was not able to get rid of all, and took down Dominick

    we will owe Schiano a lot of thanks for future success.

  23. kh Says:

    Anyone still backing Freeman? *crickets*

  24. kh Says:

    I think you’re right realist, history will be kind on Schiano.

  25. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    @Realist

    I call him Coach Douche, and I mean it affectionately. He cleaned out most of the quitters, felons, and malcontents on the roster.

  26. Bucamania Says:

    Woohoo more time to party!

  27. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @ Realist

    Sometimes it take hitting rock bottom…utter failure to affect change…on this point you are right about Schiano….there’s something about him that I like….I just can’t seem to figure it out….
    He’s gone….Dominick’s gone…Freeman’s history…its a new day in Tampa Bay!!!………Again…

  28. CC Says:

    A local radio host is demanding Coughlin be fired.

  29. Patrick in VA Says:

    Schiano was good at evaluating talent and team players. Would’ve been happy to have him head up the scouting department. Absolutely the right move to let him go as a coach.

  30. Mr Lucky Says:

    @Oil Brooks

    the quitters on the roster???? I wonder where THEY came from in the first place….

    Can anyone say coach Radio?????

  31. BucFan20 Says:

    guess he must have been trowing balls in the dirt in underwear football. That gets you fired.

  32. AceOfAerospace Says:

    Bu-bye.

  33. Mr Lucky Says:

    There was no way Freeman should have been let out on the field in 2013 – PERIOD!

    Josh should just work his way back to ESPN and perfect his Michael Jackson impersonation – maybe then he’ll get a job on the NCL Epic in their look alike show.

    No team, not even the Jags, are desperate enough to let Freeman on their fields – he’s HISTORY!

  34. Jeffobrien Says:

    Wow I’m so glad we didn’t lock him up to a big contract like a lot of people were saying we should do before his contract was up. How quickly he has fallen this is almost unbeleivable that this guy has went from 26 tds 6 ints to no job in 2 years. The most surprising is he has passed all drug test. So drugs and alchohol aren’t the reason must be seriously messed up in the head. I just would love to know what went wrong. And I wonder what big dogg will say about this how he can spend this into a positive for freeman. Probaly something like this. Wake up everybody did you really think freeman was going to sit around and be a back up he asked for the release. He wants the oppurtunity to start and knew he couldn’t in New York. I know people who told me this I can’t say who or what I know just know that I know what’s really going on wake up tampa

  35. PRBucFan Says:

    WOMP WOMP WOMP

    “I Told You So”

    So sorry Freemanites lol ;)

  36. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    While part of me feels a little vindicated on backing Schiano the talent evaluator (and I actually do believe history will show he did more good for the Bucs than bad and will vindicate him of any wrong doing in Freeman’s medical record leaking, ballot fixing nonsense), I actually kind of feel bad for Josh and the few remaining Freemanites that cling to his 10-6 record vs. crap defenses as hope he will rebound. Oh well his release from the Giants was as easy to foresee as is MG8 winning the starting QB role during preseason this year.

  37. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Schadenfreude….is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.

    OK to do that if its a multi-millionaire in his twenties….can’t really feel to sorry for him…

  38. Cough Fan Says:

    his release from the Giants was as easy to foresee as is MG8 winning the starting QB role during preseason this year.

    ————-

    BINGO!!

    -LONG LIVE THE MGM!!

  39. Jason1977 Says:

    My name is the Big Dawg and I think Freeman is still the best QB in the league.

    Me too. He had such great promise. Sad waste.

    FLBoyInDallas Says:

    He only waits. Ginger Cannon is growing on me. lol

  41. s simpson Says:

    Note to local radio host: Oh No!

  42. PRBucFan Says:

    Couch unfortunantly that won’t happen, not this year atleast BUT atleast you were one of the few true fans on here that saw Free Free for the bust he was like myself ahahahaha

  43. Cough Fan Says:

    Lol we will see. Somebody better take hold of the QB spot and light it up with this offense.

  44. Architek Says:

    Career done – Dominik maybe attached to this bust!

    This is very close to Ryan Leaf level!

  45. lightningbuc Says:

    Couch Fan and I predicted this over a year ago – and were labeled “haters” by many of you!

  46. lightningbuc Says:

    BOOMER ‘NOSTRADAMUS’ ESIASON!

  47. Bucfever40 Says:

    I can’t get over how far Freeman has descended since 2010, there used to be SO much upside with this kid, rocket arm, big and strong stature, at first he had great wheels, and he was pretty accurate too, his future seemed rock solid….then something happened. You don’t just forget how to play, especially after 1 or 2 years AND while still in your 20′s, this will always be an enigma I guess, but I also remember Duante Culpepper tearing the league up, almost to the point of it being unfair, but he too seemed to go from unstoppable to less than pedestrian all in 1 to 2 years, but he had injuries, not sure what Freeman’s excuse is/was.

  48. BigSombrero Says:

    Freeman supporters? I remember getting bashed on this site and labeled a member of the Glennon Mob for wishing Freeman was out of Tampa. Now we are all acting like we knew all along. Funny Joe. Wonder if you and Duemig will be able to overcome your emotions long enough to hold a show next week.

  49. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Couch Fan…..Cough Fan…..One in the same???

  50. PRBucFan Says:

    I was one of the most avid non-Josh supporters for a long long long time now Lightning ahaha.

    Myself and BucFanAtl but I think he was banned a long time ago.

    “This is very close to Ryan Leaf level!”

    I think you hit the nail on the head man. In fact I was suggesting such things back in September. I said at the time, maybe Freeman lost his heart for the game and is going Ryan Leaf on us.

  52. Cough Fan Says:

    In a few years when Glennon is our Franchise QB and have broken all of Freeman’s remaining team records, nobody will remember the bum known as Freeman.

  53. Buc1987 Says:

    Haters!

  54. PRBucFan Says:

    Atleast you eventually saw the light after your card carrying Freemanite ways 87 ahahaha

  55. Kevin Says:

    Too bad…hope he get’s his crap straight before his life is ruined just like his career now is.

  56. Cough Fan Says:

    LMAO I just realized i spelled my name wrong on this new computer. Thanks for bringing that to my attention TBBF

  57. Couch Fan Says:

    Corrected now.

  58. Buc1987 Says:

    Cough Fan…oh no I think Glennon is going to have a pretty good season this year.(I also thought Free was going to light it up last year soooo) The Ginger Cannon lol. There’s too many weapons for this kid or McCown to play with this year. I won’t be surprised if Mike beats out Josh in TC.

    I’m definitely all in with Glennon now. Lovie has a plan and I like it so far.

  59. PRBucFan Says:

    87, you mean he’s going to be an excellent learner behind McCown this year? Lol

  60. Buc1987 Says:

    Yah PRB..now I probably hate the a-hole more than anyone now, because of that sign. To a point I kind of feel pity for Schiano in a way, having to deal with that fool.

  61. PRBucFan Says:

    As much as the Freemanites say he was ruined by coaching, Free ruined many a coaches careers as well.

  62. Buc1987 Says:

    PRBucFan…we’ll see PRB…I don’t think McCown makes it through the whole season. The again my crystal ball has been foggy in the past, but lately, lately things are starting clear up a little bit more.

    We’ll see.

  63. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    I think that maybe, just maybe Glennon could have learned from Freeman. that’s if Schiano kept telling him to do whatever the opposite that Freeman did .

  64. Couch Fan Says:

    Thats some outside the box type thinking Realist. I like it.

  65. clafollett Says:

    Freeman will never throw another pass in an NFL game. Stick a fork and bring your sharpest serrated steak knife. He’s cooked well done.

  66. rawr Says:

    My Friday just got better.

  67. RastaMon Says:

    Sad..all the cruel comments….this story transends football and upset fans…..the real story is something I’d like to know…this is no longr a football story…it is a human story

  68. Matt B Says:

    I have nothing to gain by saying what I know to be true and Joe does not go for anonymous, second hand character attacks so I will just say, Good luck in the future Josh; I hope you get your life in order.

  69. Patrick in VA Says:

    It’s one thing to flame out of the league. That happens and it’s nothing to look down on. This guy is a young dude and is going to have to find work after football. He made a lot of money but he’s got a lot of years ahead of him. With his unemployability being played out publicly like this it’s not boding well for his next gig after football.

  70. clafollett Says:

    @RastaMon

    Cruel? Maybe? Deserved? Mostly!

    He brought “this” on himself IMHO. After I heard that incoherent interview on 620 he did, I knew we were toast. I dont know what he was on but he was lit up!

    Long live the Ginger Cannon!

  71. Luther Says:

    Maybe he can sign up with the Rams…he would fit right in.

  72. Barry Says:

    Character attacks? Quote from Mike Cannon, “Say What!!!!”.

  73. Barry Says:

    [Not cool. -- Joe]

  74. JGlazer Says:

    Where’s the big dope…I mean dog now. He “knows” quarterbacks and Freeman was the real deal…..Think he owes Schiano an apology.

  75. BigSombrero Says:

    A human story? Until someone has some proof otherwise, I will go with the evidence before me and toss Freeman into the category of lazy athletes that have no drive to succeed.

    Not some sad story of a player that faced adversity, just a lazy guy that didn’t want it. Happens all the time.

  76. Tnew Says:

    As much as I hated watching him the past 3 seasons, I still hate this. I remember really not liking the draft pick and then loving being wrong. I remember starting last year we were asking is he or flacco the better option. I just hate to watch that much talent be dribbled way. Has been? Was never that good. He’s a should have been.

  77. Maze Says:

    Too support Freeman is a loser like thing to do. Bust ass quitter. You’re ass don’t deserve the CFL

  78. PRBucFan Says:

    Exactly not to mention he lost all sympathy when he tried to burn us down on the way out

  79. Joey dirt Says:

    Hey joe. Go to thedirty.com/Tampa to see the pics from Freeman’s visit to Tampa stadium last weekend to attend a rave. Smoking gun. Here it is on a platter

  80. Surf Buc Says:

    I want my money back for my jersey :(

  81. Joe Says:

    Linkage?

  82. buccanAy Says:

    “Too support Freeman is a loser like thing to do.”…that’s pathetic.. but par for the course on this site.

  83. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Mr Lucky Says
    the quitters on the roster???? I wonder where THEY came from in the first place….

    Can anyone say coach Radio????”

    To be fair, there were quiters before Raheem became HC. We saw that when Monte left.

    I wonder if we’ll ever find out what his problem is? I’m thinking some sort of mental illness. Name slips my mind atm, but who was the Bucs oline guy that retired early due to mental issues?

    Make me sick that people here think its funny. Freeman either has a mental illness, a tumor or addiction issues, and none of those are laughable.

    He’s still young though. He should get treatment and return when he’s better.

    Haven’t read it yet

  87. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Actually, don’t bother.

    Other than maybe providing a little insight as to why he was cut, it is nothing.

  88. Doc Says:

    Freeman, asked for his release.

  89. buc4lyfe Says:

    Damn Freeman lol sorry dude can’t help laughing. You could very well end up in arena league but the laugh is because 13 games and Glennon proved he’s a franchise qb. Vick, vince young, jamarcus russell were labeled franchise qb’s, the way bucs fans are Glennon you better be lights because they’ll turn on you like you were just signed off the street if you suck like you did last year. Haha I’m sure atleast one hater here flips burgers, no shame in arena football not compared a couch quarterbacks….get it together dude

    Money or girls because while your getting one the other is getting away….stop wearing number 5 Freeman your embarrassing yourself

  90. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Thanks Brandon. Would have come to me eventually, but hard to think while laying on a heating pad and popping tylenol because of the weather.

  91. kevin Says:

    His career is over. I hope he gets his life together as her is still very young but it seems as if he is not interested in football. Oh well new team new coaches its time to put those days long behind us as bucs fan

  92. Buc'd up Says:

    I bet you if you go too Post Card Inn , a Stpete beach bar tomorrow afternoon, you will probably see Freeman’ boozing . No joke, I work in hospitality and I can tell you that the guy is too focused on his social life always frequenting bars, clubs etc. he needs to prioritize if he wants any chance in the league .

  93. buc4lyfe Says:

    Bad coaches get fired every year, no one’s shows that kind of hate for coaches, Leslie Frazier sucked still he’s in Tampa but players wow….i don’t think Eli manning missed a game in his entire career despite the surgery shoo why pay Freeman

  94. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Doc Says
    “Freeman, asked for his release.”

    Can you link to that?

    If true it could mean a number of things. First, people here will never do it but they owe him an apologyo

    Second, with Eli returning this week, he probably figure he would be cut anyway.

    Third, it is possible he got an offer. It isn’t tampering if the Giants gave permission, and he also could have gotten one from another league.

    Forth, maybe he was hungover.

    Fifth option…he’s joining TNA and becoming a pro wrestler.

  95. BucsDan Says:

    NFL.com reports that Freeman came in for a rep and lined up the offense incorrectly. He was promptly replaced by Painter. Dude just doesn’t want to put in the time to be a starter in the league.

  96. SteveBucsFan Says:

    You know I just realized the lie that perpetuated Freeman’s departure. If you test positive for a performance enhancing drug (ie adderal) you are immediately suspended for four games (ie Eric Wright, Aqib Talib). If you test positive for a recreational drug you are silently put in to the drug program, as Freeman was. There are many drugs that can bypass a pee test too.

    Also, makes you wonder who was handing out all that free adderal back then… These are the things that should be investigated about this team. Not constantly putting down a hard working kid who is still on the team. What ever happened to investigative journalism?

  98. Architek Says:

    Couch,
    Actually two years ago, I claim first dibs on the ‘give up on Freeman’ award.

    While everyone was cheering for the win against Carolina in Tampa – Doug Martin first career game – Freeman was lousy in a win. I remember questioning Joe and the site bloggers was it just me or why am I not happy about this win because Freeman stunk.

    Joe blew me off with some sarcastic remark – lol and I never forgot that because while Freeman spiraled to the bottom of the purgatory I said to myself I knew he wasn’t all there and I saw the same in Dallas because I was at the game and people hated me for speaking negative of him.

    I quit on Freeman during Raheem tenure!!!

    Sorry to steal your thunder!!!! LOLOLOL. ;-)

  99. Architek Says:

    Remember Thomas and his blind love for this dope head?

  100. Couch Fan Says:

    Lol Hey I never claimed to be the first to give up on him. Just 1 of the first and the few. I never really liked him, even the 10-6 season wasn’t impressive to me. Always thought he was over rated and never very good.

  101. Jason Says:

    Oh joe and big dog how do you explain this. Please quit sticking up
    For this guy and just admit it there has to be something else going on to blow the talent he showed at times this quickly

  102. Back, from Davie Jones Locker Says:

    Unbelievable how far he has fallen.
    Unlike many here- I never celebrate the spectacle of a young person ruining his life.
    Some of you are pathetic for doing so.
    He’s not a murder, rapist, or Bank robber.
    What he is, is an immensely talented young man/ who let the millions of dollars lead him to self distructive behavior.

    Fortunately, most of you are minimum wage earners- and will never face any temptation greater than making the trailer payment on time- or buying another 12 pack of Busch in the can.

    Anyone who was successful at an early age, can relate to the dangers
    Or, as Mark Twain stated, when asked how he spent his money-
    ” I spent most on booze, wild women, and gambling! I wasted the rest!”

    And I know some of you try to deny Freeman ever had talent
    You are lying to yourself. Everyone was excited at his potential, when he won 10 games. He is only the third QB in The Buccaneers 40 year history to do so.

    86% of all NFL Starting QBs NEVER win 10 plus games.

    It’s a damn shame how he has wasted his potential

  103. Couch Fan Says:

    And I know some of you try to deny Freeman ever had talent
    ——————–

    I let the rest of your pity post go because it was entertaining. But let’s try not exaggerate so much? Nobody said he wasn’t talented. He just wasn’t good. You can also add to that list of accomplistments quitting on his team.. and for that he deserves all the ridicule he gets.

  104. PRBucFan Says:

    Who the hell is celebrating ruining his life?

    He tried to screw this team and he’s a LIAR, in terms of football good that he’s being passed up like a basketball. karma’s a biatch and LIFE HAS CONSEQUENCES.

    Get off your high horse.

    But it’s ok most Freemanites are still bitter ;)

  105. PRBucFan Says:

    Poor poor man for having to deal with the decisions he’s made and the consequences he’s earned…

    What a twisted concept huh?

  106. Maze Says:

    Asked for his release? Maybe for another ultra embarrassing looking photo shoot posing as a child molester(allegedly). If true, he better not ever suit up again and have the chance to dishonor the NFL again.

  107. P'cola Buc Says:

    I may be wrong but I for one am quite concerned for him. Perhaps he is in the need for real help and needs to seek it instead of pushing himself on the field and ignoring the help he needs. He’s so young and it would be a shame for him to waste his life.

  108. Hawk Says:

    WOW!! The smokescreen has lifted! We now have proof that Lovie/Licht have been playing mind games with the Giants, and the Giants blinked. Yes, sir, not one word about Freeman all through free agency and the draft. Lots of cudos to this guy or that one. Coy references to draft-able prospects. It was all a ploy to get Freeman in a position where he’d be willing to not only come back to Tampa, but do so at a bargain price. Lovie/Licht brought in McCown, knowing that he can mentor Freeman on how best to set his alarm clock. The medical staff is prepared to surgically implant nose plugs to make sure Freeman doesn’t get ‘the sniffles’. Lovie, himself, has removed all knives from the Bucs’ cafeteria so they won’t ‘accidentally’ find their way into his back. Yep, it all fits now that we can look back at the evidence.

  109. Bucsqb12 Says:

    Shame.. I really thought he was the real deal. I still wish him all the best of luck in the future. But I have to put him in the Dilfer file. Loved Dilfer, all the physical attributes but just missing that weird QB thing.

  110. MTM Says:

    There is no evidence Freeman has a drug problem. It’s just common sense to assume it after all the issues in Tampa. He did it to himself. Players that are forced out of the league due to injury have my sympathies not quitters.

  111. Jim Walker Says:

    Yeah, 2010 at the Saints had me believing. I was wrong.

  112. WindyCityBuc Says:

    Freefall was AWESOME in his first start against the Pack in the Bucco Bruce garb…which might have led to his eventual downfall. Success can be as much of an illusion as failure. Either way, the Freefall “ship” has sailed (no pun intended)…let us do this new thing!

  113. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Gotta say, I was a huge Freeman supporter from 2009 all the way till the end of the 2012 season. How far he has fallen…..

  114. Architek Says:

    I’m just glad it’s all over with now!

  115. Andrew 1 Says:

    A lot of people were on the Freeman Bandwagon after that 26 and whatever season. Remember even watching some analyst on espn who thought he was going places. So back then, there were more people high on him, more so then the people who were not. Also, its plainly obvious to me that something happened to him that has caused spiral his life out of control, what it is we will probably never know.

  116. Kaptain Morgan Says:

    Shaking my head…once again another example of talent wasted on an athlete that is either immature, entitled, or has an underlying issue(s) that prevents them from achieving the full extent of their talent.

    Never wished ill to come upon Josh, in fact like most former Bucs QBs you would almost expect him to succeed elsewhere, but alas for now it seems he needs to rededicate himself to his profession. Maybe some time away from the game for a year or two will do him some good.

    Let me be one of the few to say, I hope he finds his way one day…whether it is on or off the football field.

  117. Duffous finder Says:

    I wonder if anyone remembers that fat ex qb who took the Bucs to a playoff game, but lost, saying that in his opinion Freeman needed to see a sports shrink?

    I wonder when we will ever find out who leaked Freemans medical records?

    I wonder who was advising Freeman how to deal with Schiano?

    I wonder if it was someone else who held out on his employer to get a better contract for himself? Remember Freeman was wanting a 100 Mil extension to his contract. Joe, didn’t you lobby for that?

    I wonder if Freeman will try to go into sports radio?

  118. Joe Says:

    Oh joe and big dog how do you explain this.

    What are you talking about? Joe always stated it was Freeman’s irresponsibility not to mention his p!ss poor record against winning teams and his inaccuracy that let him down.

  119. Joe Says:

    Remember Freeman was wanting a 100 Mil extension to his contract. Joe, didn’t you lobby for that?

    No.

    Yes, Joe lobbied to extend Freeman’s contract. A team-friendly contract. People seem to miss that point.

    It was the lesser of two evils unless the Bucs were going to draft a franchise quarterback.

    People seem to easily forget what Joe stated about Freeman when he was drafted. The unwashed over at Pewter Report raked Joe over the coals for years for that. Wonder what those rodents are saying about Joe now?

    PrBucFan
    “He’s a LIAR”
    Yup. Like your ass doesn’t lie every damn day of your life.
    And that’s the the worst you can say about the kid.

    I realize most of you have never had anyone offer you millions of Dollars
    I’m also sure you’ve never entered a stadium, with thousands of people all cheering your name.
    You’ve never been televised around the world
    All at the age of 23.
    “It’s all about #8″. Any woman he wanted.

    You’ve never had any of that. Makes it easy to insult- when your Dumbass has NO idea what life is like for this kid

    Unlike your unachieving ass, I got a small taste of that early success- in the music field. My success was about a tenth of his. Probably less.

    And it threw all my focuses out the window. Instead of being best friends, doing something we loved- we all had people whispering in our ears- that each of us was the “real star” of the band. Instead of focusing on the music( what mattered), we fought for the spot light

    And at 22-25, I thought it was my job to make groupies out of every hot girl.
    And suddenly- you had women you never dreamed of!
    And they, of course, all had opinions about the band, the music, the guys in the band.
    And the partying was so out if hand.enough said

    It ruined us. It fell apart. The music turned to crap

    The pressure of success, of money, of fame, absolutely destroys many young people. It’s why stars end up habitually in rehab- then broke.
    It’s why decent young Musicians end up on the obituary column, or subject to TV ridicule

    If you haven’t been there- you have no idea
    But if you had suddenly become a rich celebrity at 23- would you have turned away all the perks of celebrity?

    Yeah. He had talent. And we all cheered him.
    And it’s ruined his life

    Forgive him? No.
    But who the f+*k are you, to insult and celebrate his fall
    The only one he’s hurting is him.
    He didn’t owe any couch jockey anything.

    Easy Joe, yes many of us senior members remember and like you all we were skeptical. We were desperate for relevance and change, plus Tampa never had a franchise QB drafted that succeeded in Tampa.

    There is always hindsight but even the team-friendly extension would be bad right now because Lovie purged Dominik failed projects.

    Ease up on PR, there maybe some history there but they’re deserving of respect too. People really regard this site now and I remember some potshots sent this way a few years ago but it’s water under the bridge and there’s enough room for Pewter love in Tampa and beyond.

    As a Bucs fan, it saddens me to read all these comments and realize how irrelevant the Bucs have been the last decade. Because Bucs fans can’t gloat to other fanbases. They can only gloat to other Bucs fans about how they saw Freeman’s meltdown coming first. Kudos, losers, for hating a guy that’s probably younger than you, because you looked up to him, and he let you down. It was an epic meltdown…

  123. PRBucFan Says:

    Oh shut the hell up

    The irony about that jackass is that you know not one thing about me or my “wealth” which by the way says not one thing about a persons “character” actually.

    Apparantly cause the kid got some money from throwing a football that makes him better than anyone else? I bet those not so well off soldiers are much less worthy people right? Or less successfull? ACause they aren’t making millions?

    And the thing is I could give two craps what you believe, say, or think about me you know why? Cause your nothing but a damn screen name on a comment section behind a screen. Insignificant to me by all means lol.

    Bitter isn’t better Freemanite, try and not to be too butt hurt about it.

    P.S. There are much worse things that can be said about the kid than the fact that he’s a liar BUT I have a little more class than that and he has done a amazing job of showing the world that himself. ;)

    By all means continue to tell me how much you know about me though. Cause unlike Freeman I haven’t put it all on blast for anyone besides those closest to me. He knew the consequences of living the life under the spot light.

    But wait nothing he does deserves blame or consequence right? Lol

    That will be my last comment to you buddy. You simply aren’t worth me reading whatever you write from here on out lol.

    Joe, don’t delete this comment bcuz whenI say drugs, I’m talking about the prediction kind that we know about on record… It’s sad that Freeman allowed drugs to ruin his career. Adderrall it a hard drug, with strong effects a horrible side effects when taken long-term like Freeman was doing. I have also heard credible rumors of the illicit drug use as well, but even if those are untrue, the side effects to Adderrall perfectly describe all of Freeman’s issues. Google them & you’ll see I’m right. Shame on Freeman’s advisers/docs for getting him on something that had the potential to ruin his mental capacity for the career in which he chose to pursue. SMDH. Sad situation.

    I think some of you are missing the point – he never was a football junkie or true football gym rat to begin with, which was pointed out by many experts and scouts.

    He was a physically gifted guy that could play football. The rigors of the NFL has a way of weeding through these types every year.

    I remember Chris Landry talking about it and Raheem knew it and Dominik but they gambled and failed miserably. That’s the sad part not the results of Josh Leaf.

  129. Pruritus Ani Says:

    His problem wasn’t physical.. Like many athletes that come in, they have the ability to play the game but there is an intangible that rests in the mind that is almost of equal importance. For whatever reason, he either never had it or never cultivated it.

    Probably nothing said about Joe same as Joe said nothing here to the MGM and those who accurately predicted Glennon would be on the Bucs after free agency, after the draft, and will most likely say nothing (when it comes to fruition after preseason) when MG8 is named the starting QB this season. It’s OK though, genius is rarely appreciated :-)

  132. K1ngadroc Says:

    I’m with Rastamon, this is a sad human story. The kid could ball and I guess all the pressure of “it’s all about number 5″ when he had limited skill players, shitty D, multiple lame coaching staffs without a real consistent mentor has destroyed a very promising career.
    I’m hopeful he takes a year off and if football is what he wants to do, he gets another shot. Hey number 5, Go to India like Ricky Williams! Smoke some pot. Work it out

    Josh is a quitter and that is all he will ever be known for except by a select few who apparently worship the quitter. Good riddens to, as robert would say, “JFro 6 Pack Jackson”… Curious to know who “Free’s A Boob” is typing under now. LOL

  134. Buc1987 Says:

    F U Josh I want my $1,300 back.

  135. Bucnjim Says:

    I supported Freeman, but towards the end he had quitter eyes. I hadn’t noticed it before and I know a lot of fans on here did though. It’s funny, but the first time I was really worried was the fan appreciation night at Raymond James. It was just a simple hit the moving target on golf carts drill. Close, Medium and long range. Freeman actually missed more than half the targets then Dan O. did just about the same. Then some kid that looked tall, skinny and out of place went on to nail all of them. I was like who is this Glennon dude. I wasn’t impressed that he hit all the targets with no pass rush, but I was concerned that Freeman & Dan O. couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn.

  136. Tampamac Says:

    I’ll admit I was a Freeman supporter until last season started. Jets game worried me. I was completely done during the Saints game when on a 3rd down play, Ogletree was WIDE open in the flat for an easy first down and Freeman threw the ball directly to his feet. They showed a shot of Schiano pinching the bridge o his nose in the universal sign of frustration and that’s why on the last drive of that game we ran on 3rd and 7 I believe instead of passim because Schiano had lost all trust in Freeman. I wouldn’t have minded him being an experienced backup for us, but once he went to ESPN bitching and whining asking for a trade, I lost all personal respect for him being so selfish and putting his selfishness and ego over the team, ESPECIALLY in the middle of a season. Can’t feel sorry for him the way he handled the end of his tenure here.

  137. WobbleBuc Says:

    I didn’t like the Freeman pick initially but after seeing him a little as a rookie and then his second year, I vividly remember telling someone that I wouldn’t trade him for anyone. At the time it felt the sky was the limit and I remember hearing other teams talk about how the Bucs were on the up and up. Of course this was on the old 4 letter network boards which are now gone.

    I was half off the Freeman train at the end of the 2011 season just seeing him make the same mistakes over and over and I remember telling people that I want to be proven wrong. I would have happily jumped back on if he could have but it never happened. He broke records in 2012 but man it was some ugly record breaking.

    Although the way Freeman worked his way out of here left me bitter, and watching that Vikings MNF game was one of my favorite moments of last year (sad I know), I hope he can pull himself together in life. I liked him as a person, not that I knew him but from what I saw before all of the ugly of last year happened. He gave some hope in 2010 that we hadn’t had here in awhile and for that I’m thankful.

  138. Back, from Davie Jones Locker Says:

    “And With a final look of indignation, PrBucfan slams his trailer door. He grabs a can of Busch and some petroleum based Lube. He settles down in front of his candle lit Mike Glennon poster shrine. ” why won’t they understand Mike? Every QB besides you is garbage! Garbage. With a sigh, he re wined his Glennon VCR tape, and commits to a day of film study.”

    Toes on the line- I blew do much money, I couldn’t make the trailer payments. And Busch was the gourmet stuff, when your drinking the $1.99 a six Pabst Blue ribbon.
    Ah, Crazy times
    If the “supremely more talked than Mike Glennon( tee her) ” Josh Freeman doesn’t cut back, and learn moderation- he’s gonna get kicked out of his trailer!

    Oh, to be young, rich, dumb and self destructive!

    Robert8 and buc1987- yup. Can’t argue with that. You are right- he owes us a refund!

  140. mpmalloy Says:

    Just another shining example of how incredibly inept, self-serving
    and misguided some local media is here in Tampa. Sure, they’re fun to listen to
    because it’s like a Jerry Springer episode, but their agenda is simply one
    of “generate as many listeners as possible by any means necessary”.

    Cases in point: Clearly Manziel is a huge distraction and a marginal talent
    (by NFL standards). Clearly Schiano was a brillant evaluator of talent
    and one hell of a hough-guy. Clearly Freeman has deeper issues than anyone
    let on to. Clearly Glennon does have NFL potential that far outweighs the
    others mentioned above….but he’s not a media darling.

    Thank God sober heads have prevailed.
    Those would be Lovie, Schiano, Licht, Coughlin and the fans.

    Don’t expect the media to apologize for their epic misjudgements.
    It’s what they do.

    …clearly Gruden should never have been fired.

  142. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    My oh my! I had no idea that JBF contained so many humanitarians! It’s really shows how much you care by lambasting people on an anonymous message board.

    What harm is being done, exactly by what we are saying? Do you think Freeman is here reading the comments, and drinking himself into oblivion? If so, there’s your first evidence there’s a problem, Joe. Players could give a flying f about this. Hell, Freeman had, what, a possible $50-70M extension on the line and he still didn’t care. And you guys are crying about people commenting here?

    Tell you what, if you truly are that concerned about his welfare, here’s where you can reach his agent https://twitter.com/ErikBurkhardt

    His agent, you say? Yes the guy that has pocketed about $900,000.00 in fees off the guy (going off 3%). The guy who sees him routinely, and would be able to do something about the issues he appears to be having. Instead, he’s collecting fees. And, you people try to throw around the high and mighty routine here. LOL.

    Here’s his brothers address https://twitter.com/C_Free30. Caleb lived with him in Tampa. So, he probably has a good idea what state Freeman is in. I don’t see anything to show he’s jumping off the gravy train either.

    So, by all means, lets see how much you bleeding hearts really care for the guy. Or do you just want to deliver lip service on a masturbatory football fan comment section that will never make a difference? (much like the comments cracking on him)

  143. MGM4Life Says:

    It is a shame to see a guy with enough talent to get into this league, let alone start at the qb position, just throw it away for whatever reason. I look at Freeman, Jamarcus Russel, Vince young and wonder what happened?

  144. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Wonder if Raheem had been given more money, resources, and was able to hand pick his coaches we’d be secure with Freeman right now. No one can convince me that Mike Cannon is a better qb than Josh Freeman. How many games did we lose under Schiano because of the defense giving up the lead? How many games did Josh lead us from behind to put us into position to win? Instead of possibly going 12-4, the Buccs went 7-9 in 2011. In 2012 Schiano was looking for his “guy”, and found him in the third much to the surprise of many that the Buccs took a qb in the third round. The writing was on the wall even before the alleged problems began, when Schiano essentially stated that qb was open competition. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000120618/article/greg-schiano-hints-at-buccaneers-qb-competition. Did we hear of Freeman having any team problems before 2012 from coaches, media, fans? I don’t recall any…zip, zero, nada. All of a sudden, Josh is an alleged drug addict, that can’t make team meetings on-time, and the leak came out. Why would Josh (or his agent) leak it to sabotage his own career, and identity? Doesn’t make sense. Josh isn’t without culpability, but it seemed to me to be an atmosphere created by the head coach. I know some of you will disagree, and that’s fine. However, even to Pewter Report’s admission, Schiano still had players telling him to loosen up on the reigns even AFTER Freeman’s departure. IE – not making it mandatory to check in to every team meal except game day, and walk throughs. Perhaps Freeman knew the writing was on the wall and was acting out? I don’t know, I just know that Schiano was in over his head, could never make the necessary half-time adjustments, conservative play calling, did not listen to his players as often as they would have liked, and the players did not buy into his constant style of micro-managing. Freeman did not get both coaches fired in Tampa, it was their inexperience that got them canned.

Hopefully he had a good financial advisor during his first 5 years, I think he’ll need it.

    I cannot stand revisionist historians. You make this crap up so much you start to believe it.

    Josh Freeman NEVER insisted on a new contract and he NEVER mentioned once a dollar amount.

    It was the media that talked about numbers because of other QBs that got similar deals. Flacco. Romo.

    This is what I hate. A player is cut and fringe fans that do not know what they are talking about start making up all sorts of reasons for his demise and to hate on him.

    —————————————

    So you mean to tell us all that you knew all about his alleged “issues” in 2012, a year of head of the rest of Buccs fans? I find that delusional I bet you’re going to tell us that you had inside intel ala Pewter Report, or have a fourth cousin that works at One Bucc. LOL

    BTW, Freeman was initially let go by the Giants due to not learning the offense quick enough per pro football talk. Didnt he just sign with the Giants? How much time has he had to learn the offense? You don’t let a qb go for mistakenly lining up the offense wrong one time during a practice session let alone a scrimmage or preseason game. Hell, I’ve seen NFL qb’s accidentally line-up under center wrong. I’m thinking this has more to do with Eli’s health and depth chart, as well as Freeman’s erroneous rep. than anything else. Profootball talk quotes an unnamed Viking source that said Freeman was late for meetings. My biggest guess is that it was Leslie Frazier to who put out that false info because he was shown-up by his GM when Freeman was brought in without his permission. The move was essentially telling Coach Frazier, you don’t know what you’re doing, and it’s this guy or else. There was major dissension in Minny just like TB, and Frazier was fired. Freeman comes in on MNF unprepared and he plays horrible. Even Gruden said he should not be playing, he’s not ready. The same Gruden that said the Buccs were going to win the NFC South with Freeman in 2013. Btw, Frazier lauded Freeman at his press conference.

    So how does Freeman go from the only player to show-up at Coach Toes on The Line’s first presser in the Spring of 2012 and having an incredible work ethic, to being ousted like trash in a matter of a year, despite coming off one of the best offensive seasons in recent team history? The blame falls mainly on Schiano, imo. If you tell me drugs then you’re delusional since he took a litany of drug tests and passed them all. If I had to play for Schiano myself, I’d look for escape routes.

  154. PRBucFan Says:

    How do you know he had these issues in 2012? Because he looked off to you? How come no media picked-up on this issue prior to 2013? Was it that secret? Uh, no one else picked-up on how off he looked until the radio interview in 2013 where he was hungover. You’re assuming he had these prior “issues” without proof and validation. Calling Freeman a bust is laughable/delusional as well. Busts don’t make pro-bowls. Busts get cut from their team. Busts are never productive.

    Oh please , kill someone? You really are delusional to think I’d support a murderer. smh

    Sounds like Schiano had issues of his own…read this gem from Schiano:

    (Regarding the coach being all-in on Freeman, pre-issues) –

    “”That’s a question that, again, I’m not all in with myself yet, so how could I be all in with Josh Freeman or any other player?” Schiano said. “I’m not side-stepping you, but I need to evaluate.”

    for the record, I never thought Freeman was an elite qb, never did, but he was good enough to make the playoffs (should of made the playoffs in 2010 and 2012 under Freeman) and win a super bowl (even Schiano admitted as much through his teeth). I have defended Freeman from silly baseless attacks and will continue to do so as I am now. My main issue was Schiano Man throwing the baby out with the bath water in week three. Two of the three games we should of one but lost due to the defense; essentially giving up on Freeman for his own personal reasons (you won’t convince me with invalid and unproved issues of drug addiction, mental illness, etc).. Schiano made his bed, lost the confidence in the team, and was correctly fired as as result.

    I’ll support Mike Cannon (cannon is delusional as well) under a new coach despite my opinion (from day one) that he’s not starting material if the day comes he’s reinserted. McCown is our starter and gap qb for at least two years until we can find the next replacement.

    @feelthepewterpower

    Here’s some knowledge for you:

    Fact: Boomer first reported on Freeman’s partying in October 2012.

    Fact: Freeman himself said in October 2013 that he had been in the drug program 18 months at that point. Meaning, roughly early 2012.

    Fact: Freeman’s massive weight loss was first reported in May 2012. We also know that Freeman went from Taco Bell addict (Jeff Faine’s words) to a healthy eater. Freeman also spent much of that offseason playing soccer locally and doing other aerobic training. Joe and others confirmed that. He played pretty well in 2012.

    Fact: No one truly knows why he was suspended, despite his claims of ADHD meds. The NFL is unable to confirm or deny what the positive test was for due to the collective bargaining agreement. Freeman was not suspended. –Joe

    Fact: A positive test for performance enhancing drugs triggers an automatic 4 game suspension. ADHD drugs come under PEDs. So, if he tested positive for a PED he would have been suspended, not put into the program, as he claims. Meaning, it was a positive test for a drug of abuse not a PED.

    It’s unclear if Freeman had a prescription and waiver for Adderrall, which he claims to, whether that would have covered him for a positive test for Ritalin, assuming he had a prescription. None of us know how the waivers are written when it comes to the class of drugs versus specifics. There’s a lot unknown from all angles. –Joe

    Do the math, man.

    That is probably the lowest when a team decides to cut you before you even have a chance to compete for a “backup” role, and until Josh gets his own personal demons under control his football career will continue to tumble. And I’m sure that Duemig and other Freeman apologists will keep claiming it’s Schiano’s fault or this team’s fault and that team’s fault, much like all the Tebow apologists kept doing and now look where he is……..DONE! Josh is much more talented than Tebow ever was for sure but his off field issues are killing his career and it’s now time to go to rehab while he’s young.

    and he wasn’t able to learn the offense in a month, but, he was able to travel to Tampa for this?

    http://thedirty.com/category/tampa/

    Yeah, he seems like real professional guy. If you can’t learn the playbook you probably shouldn’t be doing what he was obviously doing.

    Some of you guy are in bigger denial than he is.

    Dude, this link proves nothing. What exactly is Freeman doing in this picture. Nothing. Standing in public with a woman. Freeman still lives in Tampa. He’s a resident. Should he not take a 2.5 hour flight home on his day off? You’re probably one of those guys who thinks Johnny Football is a demon for womanizing. –Joe

    He could definitely make a better Micheal Sam impersonator then a Micheal Jackson impersonator.

    What are you thinking bro? Lol

    Well said

  172. buccinstopit Says:

    ODB-

    Seriously, deductive reasoning here, In an interview he said he lost weight by stopping late night stops at Taco Bell, who goes to Taco Bell late night? Ohhhhhhhhh……………

  173. SteveK Says:

    ODB,

    Exactly!

    Freeman and his agent are the rats.

    Freeman couldn’t outperform Curtis Painter or Ryan Nassib with 6 weeks to study. He didn’t even make it to training camp.

    Some UDFA from Chicago’s 2013 practice squad got the call to replace him.

    He’s toast. Sadly, we are stuck with a radio host on 620 that won’t admit Freeman sucks and Glennon has potential.

  174. PRBucFan Says:

    Is not* lol whoops

  175. PRBucFan Says:

    And you probably don’t know anything about ODB ;)

    Let alone anything about your love Johnny boy

    Who cares about Freeman- screw that guy!
    I’m on to something really cool and profitable.
    I got Vegas to but odds on if PrBucfan has a masters degree, and is a clinical psychologist
    OR
    If he lives in a trailer, drinks Busch, and has a Glennon Shrine!

    Odds are in my favor!
    A Clinical Psychologist is far to busy, to spent 14 hours a day on a football site, proclaiming the Greatness of a Scrub backup QB!

    Anyone that would do that, needs his head examin . . On, Wait!
    Lmfao

    as someone who has experience with the two main party supplies jfro is rumored to hang with…

    I can say I see a lot in that picture above. pretty much the face of someone on one of the two rumored party favors.

    this is what I SEE in that picture. others may not or may not have the experience. lol

    the picture probably got him fired

  180. Buc1987 Says:

    Joe you should save that picture and use it for future Freeman articles.

  181. PRBucFan Says:

    I wish I believed in Glennon the way you and Couch do 87′.

    I just can’t lol, hopefully he proves me wrong.

    I’m pulling for McCown until he’s no longer the starter.

    “Remember Freeman was wanting a 100 Mil extension to his contract.

    I cannot stand revisionist historians. You make this crap up so much you start to believe it.

    Josh Freeman NEVER insisted on a new contract and he NEVER mentioned once a dollar amount.

    It was the media that talked about numbers because of other QBs that got similar deals. Flacco. Romo.

    This is what I hate. A player is cut and fringe fans that do not know what they are talking about start making up all sorts of reasons for his demise and to hate on him.

    Be a man. Stop making things up.
    —————————————————————-

    I am very sorry that you either cant read or you are to ignorant to understand the English language. I stated very clearly “WANTED” not demanded!

    Your wrong #2 Nowhere in my post did I give a reason or any hint as to why Freeman has fallen on hard times. Guess you are just full of Sh!t.

    I’m sorry, did I offend a Pennsylvania bull dog? Please don’t throw a golf club at me.

    Next time, please reply to what is written, not what you think. Thinking will get you in trouble every time. Sue—

    Sorry Freemanites!

    Josh just doesn’t have a passion for the game.

    Thank goodness for Mike Glennon.

    Years from now, we will look back fondly of Schiano for: drafting talent, and cutting ties with Freeman.

    If only we had traded Freeman in the offseason before the 2013 season, when we still could’ve fleeced a 7th rounder for him (NOTHING!)

  186. PRBucFan Says:

    High hopes you have there Stevek.

    Glennon may get a shot in the future but he’s by no means shown anyone that he has what it takes to change his game to the point to where he would succeed.

    All Glennon is, is a guy that is going to get a shot.

    But he’ll have to wait till McCown gets his shot first ;) lol

    You guys know that Molly isn’t just a girl’s name, right? I think the woman he is with in that picture is inferring Free is having a really good time…

    “I noticed you ignored my post directing before it……… Huh? –Joe’

    Sorry, should have typed “directly”, not “directing”. Meaning: I noticed you commented on that, but not on my long post just before it, beginning with Boomer’s article. All that before worked up to going to a concert while you could have been learning your playbook.

  189. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Oh, you did. Sorry didn’t look first.
