RGIII Is No Josh FreemanApril 20th, 2012
Joe loves when Josh Freeman improvises in the pocket, and when he runs the ball. So does Bill Cowher.
Yeah, nobody wants to see Freeman get hit, but the guy is a beast and was the No. 2 rushing quarterback back in 2010. Perhaps running more keeps Freeman more locked in.
With all the hype around Robert Griffin III heading to the Redskins next week to channel Michael Vick, one man is not completely sold on Griffin pulling that off. That would be last year’s super rookie Von Miller of the Denver Broncos. Speaking to Pro Football Weekly, Miller said Griffin is no Josh Freeman.
“He can throw the ball pretty well, and he’s fast. But if you hit him enough times, he’s going to wear down,” Miller said of Griffin. “He can run and throw, but I wouldn’t put him in that same class as (Michael) Vick, Cam (Newton) or (Josh) Freeman.”
It’s good to see Freeman commanding such respect. Perhaps Miller’s gotten a jump on watching film for preparation of the 2012 season. The Bucs head to Denver in December.
