Freeman Has “That Look;” Dotson Best In NFL?August 1st, 2013
Davin Joseph has often offered telling commentary about Josh Freeman, like in March, for example, when Joseph strongly implied that Freeman gets too caught up in media commentary and statistical data.
So Joe always listens with a keen ear to captain Joseph’s assessments of No. 5. Yesterday, Joseph told the Ron and Ian show on WDAE-AM 620 that Freeman’s mind appears to be in the right place.
“Just the way he showed up to training camp impressed me a lot,” Joseph said of Freeman. He just had that look like he was ready. He had the look like, you know, he really wants to be here. You can tell the guys who are really ready for training camp, and the guys who are just kinda are here. He really looked ready when he showed up.”
Well, Joe hopes “that look” rivals whatever Freeman looked like this time three years ago.
Also of note, Joseph flat out said he believes Demar Dotson will be the best right tackle in the NFL this season.
“He has some crazy ability,” Joseph said of Dotson. “He’s a guy, I think he seriously has the potential to be the best right tackle in the league. With his work ethic, his focus, the way he comes to work every day, I think he’ll be that this year.”
Dotson has been the running with the first team in perhaps every snap in training camp. Gabe Carimi looks healthy, as well as dominant with the second team and against second-teamers.
Joe suspects preseason game performance will play the biggest role in deciding that position battle.
