Freeman Talks About Bucs’ Mental DeficienciesDecember 17th, 2011
There’s no good explanation for the depth of the Bucs’ demise, but Josh Freeman stood tall and tried to offer some insight during The Josh Freeman Show on WDAE-AM 620 Wednesday night.
Freeman said last year’s team was much better despite largely the same roster. Penalties and losing got in the team’s head this season, Freeman said.
“Honestly, it might have played on our confidence a bit. Guys for whatever reason couldn’t get over that hump,” Freeman said. “It’s cost us ballgames, you know, and really that should never be the case. You kind of gotta put each week behind you and get prepared for the next week.”
It’s sad to Joe that the Bucs lack the necessary mental toughness that’s led to this heinous seven-game losing streak. If the coaches and the small handful of veterans can’t get through to the team very quickly, then Joe’s not sure what the 2012 fix is other than bringing in the right free agents and gutting the coaching staff.
