Offense, Defense Confusing Undefined FreemanOctober 1st, 2012
“The problem you have with a guy like Josh Freeman, we’ve seen him make all the throws. … This is a guy we’ve seen throw it to the open area, let the receiver get it. We’ve seen him drive it in the seam with authority and accurately. And he can throw that ball up over the top. So the tangibles are there. He’s big. He can run. We’ve seen him do it in the past. So this where, if they somehow sneak out a win yesterday, it’s obviously not as magnified. But the problem is he hasn’t really defined himself yet. ‘Am I going to be a pocket guy? And if I am, when I go through my progression before I leave the huddle, I have to know where my checkdown is. If I don’t like what I see or I’m confused, I have to know where Doug Martin is checking down. I have to know where that release route is to get it out of my hands.’ Because sometimes it’s like, in your fourth year you have to know when that clock goes off when those rushers are going to get there. Sometimes he looks tremendous, and sometimes you’re wondering why he’s hanging on to it for so long.”– Former Bucs tight end and current network radio analyst Dave Moore on Josh Freeman.
