No. 5 Will Benefit From Studying Versus LearningJanuary 4th, 2013
The Bucs’ 2012 quarterbacks coach, Ron Turner, has exited the New Schiano Order for Florida International University. But Turner was back talking Bucs this evening with Tom Krasniqi on WDAE-AM 620.
Turner was adamant that Josh Freeman has all the makings of a franchise quarterback, and Turner explained that a Freeman offseason of studying the Bucs offense, versus learning it, will make all the difference in his performance.
“A second year in the system will definitely help him as far as consistency goes,” Turner said.
Turner praised Freeman’s work ethic and said Freeman “wanted to be coached” and “wanted to learn.”
Interestingly, Turner said Freeman’s game-film grades were better than many might think. And Turner specifically mentioned the Rams-Bucs game when Freeman had four interceptions, as an example.
In all, Turner was very positive about all things Bucs and very matter of fact about Freeman’s struggles, saying all quarterbacks have rough stretches.
