“They Drive Me Absolutely Nuts”August 28th, 2013
In a rare step outside his usual laid-back, even-keeled commentary on all things Bucs, Josh Freeman offered up a little gem this afternoon when talking about the dropped passes that have plagued the Bucs throughout the preseason.
“They drive me absolutely nuts,” Freeman said.
Make no mistake, Freeman wasn’t making a big deal out of the drops or making excuses. He got a question about drops, as well as those about the negative perception of his play. And Freeman first said he has complete confidence in the stud receivers around him.
But Freeman is human, and he’s got fire in him, even if fans don’t see it on camera. The drops should drive Freeman nuts. They’ve been a significant factor in the criticism against the franchise quarterback this month. (You can listen to the full audio below, via Joe’s partners at WDAE-AM 620.)
