Brees Says “Revis Rule” Is In Effect

September 13th, 2013

In many ways, the Bucs, especially rockstar general manager Mark Dominik, have been waiting for Sunday’s Saints game for months.

Why? Well, the revamped Bucs secondary, one that cost Team Glazer a fortune, now gets to face one of the teams it was built to stop.

Mark Barron, in part, was brought here to cover elite tight ends like Saints stud Jimmy Graham. Dashon Goldson was brought here to bust skulls and scare receivers. And $1 million-per-game Darrelle Revis was purchased to shorten the field and give elite quarterbacks like Drew Brees and Matt Ryan something more to worry about.

It all comes together Sunday, and Mr. Brees agrees that it’s a very different Bucs secondary.

“Within a gameplan you have certain matchups that you’re trying to exploit, certain coverages or certain looks that you’re trying to get,” said Brees (via the Saints official website), who completed 26 of 35 passes for 357 yards and two touchdowns, with an interception, in the season opener.

“I would say there are times where, hey, maybe there’s a corner and you just know, he defends this certain route or this certain concept or this play very, very well. And so, all things equal, let’s go away from him. And so you definitely say there’s a Revis rule, as it pertains to some of those things – you want to avoid giving him those opportunities as much as you can.

“But then again, we’re going to execute our offense and there’s going to be times where we’re going at his side or going at him, and that is what it is. We’re not going to be careless about it.”

Joe loved hearing Brees mention that “Revis rule.” For Joe, the seconds can’t pass fast enough until Sunday’s kickoff.

Revis himself said on his radio show that the Bucs’ secondary must live up to the “No Fly Zone.” It will be embarrassing if they can’t. That “No Fly Zone” slogan is plastered on a massive billboard outside the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway.

    Joe, any word on CB additions? Or are we still stuck with 3 going into Sunday?

  2. TheBuccaneersMan Says:

    Can’t wait to see what this head hunting secondary can do against a top flight offense. Hope the coaches stop with the crazy stunting and are able to get after Brees.

  3. teacherman777 Says:

    We have 3 great DBs.

    And Schianos guy Leonard Johnson, who I love and respect, is manning our 4th starting position?

    Are u serious?

    He is, one of the worst, “starting” CBs in the league.

    Hes a great #4 dime corner and special teams, effort guy.

    He just isnt an NFL athlete yet. I respect him and I support him.

    But he is clearly the weak link right now.

    Wouldnt u agree @Joe?

    We need to try out Banks or just regret not signing Grimes.

    We screwed ourselves by not bringing in another dominant corner to play opposite Revis.

    I think Schiano might be following his heart here a little too much.

    And he needs listen to reason.

    Im happy to employ Leonard Johnson for the next 8 years. But as a #4 corner.

  4. Raphael Says:

    Get ready LJ ….it could be a long day ..

  5. Raphael Says:

    I am sure it will be Freemans fault tho ..

  6. tonytwocents Says:

    “We screwed ourselves by not bringing in another dominant corner to play opposite Revis.”

    We had Talib. Could you imagine that tandem?? But Schiano doesn’t like guys who might question/doubt him. Sooooooooo we have Leonard.

    BTW, it wasnt even about the gun issue. He wasnt convicted of anything. Wasnt suspended. And I myself wouldnt hesitate to pistol whip anyone who puts his hands on my sister.

  7. tonytwocents Says:

    lol. that never gets old Raph.

  8. Northend Says:

    Go get Antoine Winfield wtf

  9. Buc1987 Says:

    LOL Raphael… if it goes from 92 degrees and sunny at RJS this Sunday at 5:15 PM or so and it gets cloudy and starts to rain it will be…..wait for it… Freeman’s fault.

  10. Eric Says:

    Can’t we go back to the fantasy offseason?

  11. bucrightoff Says:

    Actually its getting incredibly old Raphael. On Sunday Freeman could be 19-41 for 220yards and 1TD and 4INTS, lead the Bucs to a 4th quarter lead and if the defense doesn’t hold it its all on them and Freeman “did enough” “set them up to win” etc…That too is getting very old.

  12. Walter Says:

    @bucrightoff

    Freeman putting us in the lead is getting old?

  13. Raphael Says:

    LOL !

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    bucrightoff…Now you are describing Dilfer days. Nice perspective. Thanks for the memories.

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    “Strike me down with all of your hatred and your journey towards the dark side will be complete! … Let the hate flow through you.”

  16. Raphael Says:

    Bucrightoff ..maybe one of these days the defense will hold …..if not …it’s Freemans fault ..

    Back in the day you give the defense 17 points it was game over …now the defense loses games in the last minute all the time and gets a pass ….sad

  17. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    @bucrightoff

    That same Jets defense just stymied one of the best QBs to ever play the game and just barely lost. The Jets had the second ranked pass defense in the league last year. Go look at all the top tier QBs stats that faced that defense in 2012. A surprising amount of them did not eclipse 200+ yards and 2+ TDs against them.

    To say that Freeman played absolutely horrible is saying that we should have been able to run and pass all over that defense. It has been one of the best for years but because Freeman didn’t light it up, he sucked.

    This is Br-ady’s stat line from last night:

    19/39 48% 185 yards 1 TD 0 INT

    Freeman’s stat line vs Jets:

    15/31 48% 210 yards 1 TD 1 INT

    I don’t know how in the world you could think Freeman had such a horrific game after what the Jets did to the Pats last night. The Jets defense was just good. Point blank. They came in with a great game plan and executed it well. It is obvious at this point that the Jets were VERY underrated coming into this season.

    Hope we can make it to Sunday before anyone jumps off that bridge.

    Go Bucs! (I hope I am allowed to say that.)

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    “Go Bucs! (I hope I am allowed to say that.)”

    WestCoast…..lol idk man those are touchy words around these parts.

  19. al121976 Says:

    we did try to sign grimes but with all the money we spent, im ok with what we have. I think banks overtake lj soon enough.

  20. Walter Says:

    Before anyone jumps on WestCoastBucsFan, NOOOO, he was not trying to imply that Freeman is anywhere near Brady’s level, just that the Jets defense is nice.

  21. tony Says:

    @bucrightoff

    Thank you! Your ONE of the many with any kind of football brains on here!

  22. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Just my thot on LJ,Lenard is what Biggers was, i don’t see him going anywhere soon.

  23. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    @Buc1987

    Tell me about it. If you actually cheer for your team that might insinuate you think they will be good or maybe even *GASP* win! (How dare they?!) If you think they might win then you might think Freeman may play a half decent game and we all know that is simply not possible. You know, because Freeman didn’t light up one of the best defenses in the league. That can ONLY mean he is a terrible QB waiting to be overtaken by a rookie third round pick.

    Adrian Clayborn tweeted earlier to tell Bucs fans to ignore the media right now because its all just BS. I guess we will find out on Sunday.

  24. al121976 Says:

    @westcoast – you have a valid argument however, the jets had help from brady’s receivers last night. if brady had vjax and mw I am sure he would have been resting after halftime. I think freeman needs to turn on the light this weekend or we can get used to the idea of a rookie qb playing for us next year. I don’t mind freeman but he hasn’t sold on the future yet.

  25. Couch Fan Says:

    Hope Glennon is taking notes from a real QB like Brees Sunday. He’ll be starting next time we see the Aints.

  26. Adam L. Says:

    How about “Mock-Star General Manager” Mark Dominik?

  27. bucrightoff Says:

    The depths some of you will go to to defend Freeman are nauseating. Go ahead and make the list of all the franchise QBs who have 39 INTs over 2 seasons. Please, make the list.

  28. Machiavellii Says:

    I don’t buy it. I am done defending freeman. Bottom line is a great franchise quarterback would not have taken us through the bumpy ride that freeman has over the last 4 seasons – freeman is an average quarterback at best with a history of inconsistency.

    We need to just cut our ties and move on as he isn’t going to improve any more than what he is now. I am not interested in developing him any further he has had his chances now time to move aside.

    Unfortunately I think glennon gives us the best chance to win right now – make the move and carry on. That’s just my opinion – you never know we might end p been this years 49ers.

  29. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    @bucrightoff

    Please make me a list of all the quarterbacks to have great years both in the year their head coach was fired and then also in the first year of their new head coach.

    The depths some of you will go to bash Freeman is nauseating.

  30. tonytwocents Says:

    you guys need to lay off bucrightoff!

    …its not his fault he has no football sense. …..its Freemans fault.

  31. tonytwocents Says:

    It turns out Assad WASNT responsible for chemical attacks on his people.

    ….it was Freeman’s fault. (ok, now Im wearing out a perfectly good joke. I’ll stop now)

  32. tonytwocents Says:

    tony Says:

    “@bucrightoff

    Thank you! Your ONE of the many with any kind of football brains on here!”

    yeeeah… you really dont deserve that name. change it…..now.

    like I mentioned earlier:

    To all you ignorant, Glennon Groupies/Freeman Haters. Understand, that through all your offseason attacks, he STILL PLAYED WELL ENOUGH TO WIN last Sunday. LVD just fucced it up!!

    Breakdown, for the 3rd time, you moronic, simple, one direction minded, crippled thought process having, Deliverance cast member extras:

    a) he started off 6-8 for 65 before the helmet issue. which the coaches looked at, and sent him back out with the same faulty helmet.

    b) his o-line couldnt even give him 1 mississippi. they even directly caused us 2 points, which could have been 6 if it WERENT for Free.

    c) he had no run support, which brought on more blitzes.

    d) there were enough dropped balls that, had they been caught, would have brought his completion percentage over 60. and some of those drops coulve turned into or setup a TD.

    e) in crunch time, under 2 minutes, he still put us in a position to win the game.

    STOP seeing what you want to see! You want Glennon in there? Then you dont care that that’ll END OUR SEASON! You want to PLAY FOR THE DRAFT?? You fake asss fans!

    Stop breeding. Tie your sisters/wifes tubes. Go back and finnish middle school! You smelly asss vaginas!

  33. Dimitrios Says:

    Yea it was definitely Freeman’s fault against tbe nyg past year when he put up 30+ points on the road only to have schiano blitz every play with the lead for Eli to come back. Of how about the comebacks in the fourth quarter from Washington and Nick Foles. Schiano is undermining both coordinators and its only a matter of time before he gets fired.The players have alreadyturned on him. You think the players meeting was a pep rally? And they didn’t want their coaches in with them? Haha only a naive turd would actually want to believe that. I have a feeling they had a raise your arm vote to see who they wanted captain and they all saw the REAL results. Why would Davin run to Freeman’s aid to provide info about himself also being late to meetings? The real question is WHERE THE FUDGE is the defense.. Isn’t that Schianos specialty? Instead I saw a sloppy defense playing reckless going helmet to helmet on 3rd and 24 for automatic first downs. BE A TEACHER Schiano educate these dudes and realize Freeman gives you the best chance to survive this season you BUM

  34. Couch Fan Says:

    Glennon will reunite the fan base and take us to the playoffs. GO BUCS!!

  35. tonytwocents Says:

    ^^^^ Couch, you are without a doubt officially retarded in your ass, face, and brain.

    If anyone here knows Couch personally, please take his drivers liscence and any sharp objects away, and call the authorities. Repeat to them what he just said, and they’ll take it from there.

  36. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    ^^ Nice to see some fans as deliriously in denial as they claim the “Freemanites” to be.

  37. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    Haha, my last comment was @Couch Fan.

  38. tonytwocents Says:

    yeah, we clicked at the same time. hopefully Couch will be watching the game Sunday from the 9th floor at TGH.

  39. 76buc76 Says:

    Excuse x,y and z. Coming soon

  40. tonytwocents Says:

    @76buc76, where are your points?? is that all you come to the table with? yes.. why?? because I’ll sh!t on any “point” you try and make and send you back to 1976 with your tail tucked between your vagina lips.

  41. Couch Fan Says:

    I forgive you all and soon we will not be arguing anymore once Glennon takes over and does what Freeman can not do, win.

  42. Walter Says:

    Oh no, Couch Fan has turned into Robert

  43. tonytwocents Says:

    @Couch – “I forgive you all and soon we will not be arguing anymore once Glennon takes over and does what Freeman can not do, win.”

    what, you think youre Jesus now??? yup. you def belong on the 9th floor at TGH.

  44. tonytwocents Says:

    “Oh no, Couch Fan has turned into Robert”

    Couch Fan has turned to the crack rock.

  45. Couch Fan Says:

    Just wait and see, we will all be singing Glennon’s praises soon enough. Freeman will be a long, well desserved, distant memory.

  46. 76buc76 Says:

    Tony it’s not a few Buc fan’s. It’s national now. Many expert’s are fueling this Freeman fire. He one of only a few QB’s on the hot seat. Six win’s in four years vs team’s over .500….SIX. Among the league leader’s in turnover’s each year ( save it…except 2010) and those 5 horribly inaccurate passes he throw’s every freaking game. I’m intrested to know when fellow mobster’s fell off the Freeman wagon. DIFOTFW state the day I fell off the Freeman wagon. I was a die hard Freeman supporter till the Eagles game last year. Freeman missed an important meeting….the first half. Skipping out on his own camp, oversleept the team pic what’s next. I’m writing the Josh Freeman story…title….Snake in the grass the Josh Freeman story

  47. Bobby Says:

    I understand. This is a forum where people who understand football can post and then those who are absolutely clueless can post too. The two will never understand each other. Rational thinkers will say…”I think Glennon has potential. He may eventually turn into a good QB but to start him after 1 game is absolute madness. If Freeman continues to struggle then we can put Glennon in later in the year and see what we have.”

    Then there are the irrational thinkers who panic daily and never understand that an ugly win is better than a pretty loss and don’t believe the defense ever has to close out a game unless the game is out of reach. They want to start Glennon immediately because obviously the first game of the year is a clear indicator of where every QB in the league is heading and determines the fate of every team. In their mind if you lose the first one and play sloppily it’s time to chuck in the towel and look toward the draft.

    You can tell a lot about who is a quitter in real life and those who are used to fighting through adversity just by reading the posts on here. How you think determines who you are and there are so many here who lack patience and are unwilling to go through any bumps in the road when their plans for how the first game was supposed to go fail. Sad really. They let a game turn them into depressed, hate filled people who, instead of rooting for the team to rebound start to predict doom and gloom and revel in anything that goes wrong because that’s what they prophesied. Here its i Friday and very few posters are saying “C’mon Josh! Make the media out to be fools and tear the Saints a new one!!” Shouldn’t that be our hope? Are you so hoping for his failure that you would sacrifice the season just so a rookie QB could play after ONE GAME????

  48. Couch Fan Says:

    Funny how you know so much about people who dont agree with your opinion.

    You can tell everything about there life apparently.

    It says a lot about someone who assumes so much about people he does not know simply because he does not agree with there opinion

    And nobody is hoping for failure. We just simply know that Glennon, being a rookie, still offers the team more hope than a mediocre QB that has time after time proven that he can not win.

  49. tonytwocents Says:

    ^^^^ Funny how you know so much about Glennon that youre sure he’s better than Freeman… EVEN THOUGH HIS BIGGEST FAN KEPT ORLO ON THE ROSTER.

    you see Couch, you can learn alot about someone by what they know, how much they know, and how little they know.

  50. tonytwocents Says:

    somebody write that down.

  51. Couch Fan Says:

    Again, You are assuming a lot and making an @ss out of yourself in the process. I never claimed to know anything, I just choose to believe that Glennon will be good since he hasent proven to completely suck like Freeman has. You see unlike you I’m not bias and I dont assume to know someone is just going to suck and being a Bucs fan I choose to believe in the best about someone who hasent proven anything one way or the other.

    Will he be great? I dont know but until he proves he sucks, he has my support… Because a REAL BUC FAN just wants to win… not settle for mediocrity because they are impressed by a few meaningless stats.

  52. tonytwocents Says:

    Couch, even his BIGGEST supporter, Schiano, kept Orlo on the roster. So HE KNOWS Glennon Is. Not. Ready….. And he watches him Every. Mother. Fu(king. Day…

    er-fuccin-go, if Glennon starts, the seasons over. If you want Glennon to start, you’re not concerned that THE SEASON WILL BE OVER.

    how are you not getting this????? Im done dude. I cant make it any simpler than that. Im done.

  53. tonytwocents Says:

    I’ll be Goddamned if we go through another rebuilding season.

    Schiano must be smokin Couch’s crack rocks if he thinks Tampa Bay will put up with 2 more years of rebuilding.

  54. Couch Fan Says:

    YOU ARE NOT GETTING IT. I choose to believe in Glennon, the same way you choose to believe in Freeman EVEN as the losses continue to pile up under his tenure… Freeman has proven he is inept and can NOT win in this league on a regular basis. Glennon has not proven that much yet therefore he has my full support….

    I can not make it any simpler than that. So I’m glad your done. Start Glennon, GO BUCS!!

  55. tonytwocents Says:

    I believe that Freeman’s experience gives us the best chance to make the playoffs and win a game or two.

    I believe that if Schiano lays off Freeman, he’ll play more comfortable like he did in 2010.

    I believe that if Schiano lays off of Sully, and lets Sully choose what plays to call, then our offense will be way more productive.

    I believe that Schiano’s style is all over the place.. As messy and cluttred as his office desk (per NFL.com). And that was reflected on the field throughout the preseason and the first game.

    I believe Sully as HC gives this team the best chance to win this year, and the year after, and the year after.

  56. tonytwocents Says:

    I’ll say one thing about Freeman, this whole photogate sh!t has made me lose faith in his maturity. But he still has tenure. And he still has talent. And I think that Sully as HC is the best way to get through to him and start growing up. Schiano’s bulldog tactics will only lead to more sleep ins… Just like this team was done with Schiano by December last year.

    Sully 4

  57. tonytwocents Says:

    You think a West Point grad leaves clutter all over his office??

  58. tonytwocents Says:

    I’ll say one thing about Freeman, this whole photogate sh!t has made me lose faith in his maturity. But he still has tenure. And he still has talent.

    Sully 4 HC!!!

  59. Couch Fan Says:

    So let me get this straight. Freeman has more experience thats why he is the answer this year and not Glennon…. But Schiano has MUCH MORE experience than Sully…. but you think Sully is right for the job?

    You see your opinions often conflict with your statements and often dont make sense. You say you can “read between the lines” when it comes to Schiano or things said or not said about Schiano… but yet you give Freeman a pass at every oppertunity. Odd.

    You are entitled to your belief so I promise not to “bash” Freeman anymore. I just will stick to supporting Glennon.

  60. Couch Fan Says:

    You say Free is the best option because of his experience. But Schiano has MUCH MORE experience than Sully. Sully has no HC experience at ANY level and you are advocating putting Sully in at HC. Explain this sh!t?

    You say you can “read between the lines” when it comes to anything said or not said about S.chiano. But anything out of Freeman’s mouth is took at face value… Explain this sh!t?

    You are entitled to your opinion so I wont bash Freeman anymore. I’ll just stick to supporting G.L.ennon

  61. Couch Fan Says:

    You say Freeman is out best option because of experience. Sully has NO HC experience but somehow you think he’s the best option for the Bucs? Explain that sh!t?

  62. Couch Fan Says:

    our*

  63. tonytwocents Says:

    Sully’s been workin through the ranks in the NFL for the past 11 years. He’ll be a HC next year. Maybe not with the Bucs, but somewhere.

    Eli credited his turnaround in 2010 to Sullys QB coaching. He’s also been a WR coach with NY, so he pretty much knows how to put together an offense.

    His 1st year as an OC, he produces a 4000+ yd passer, a Top 5 WR, a Top 10 WR, and a Top 5 RB.

    He has been to NFL playoff games. He has won NFL playoff games. He has been to NFL Championship games. He has won NFL Championship games. He has been to 2 Super Bowls. He has won 2x Super Bowls.

    We know his background. West Point, Army Ranger, Martial Artist.

    Now dont get me wrong. Schiano helped the Canes as a DC. He spent a couple years in the NFL as an assistant coach, not a decade though. He helped turn around the Rutgers program, but they never got anywhere.

    But I also believe in attidude and work ethic. Sullys an upbeat, positive guy in his pressers. Schianos kind of a d!ck. I wouldnt dare question Sullys work ethic. But Im also not gonna question Schianos. But I think Sully would be more organized and prepared, since he’s spent over a decade alongside 2x NFL SB winning coaches. Schiano, for the past decade, has been up in Rutgers, as the big boss on campus. With everyone, including the media, kissing his ass. How can you learn and grow that way??

  64. Bobby Says:

    Not hard to read you couch. You are the definiton of ‘the common man’.

  65. tonytwocents Says:

    As far as Belicheat?? He uses Schiano. (Keep your enemies closer) Belicheat drafts all the quality players out of Rutgers, while Schiano picks up the left overs off the street.

    He gives BeliCHEAT a joint practice when we’ll be playing them a month later?? Belicheat wants intel, and I’m sure he got some.

    Schiano drops Blount, Talib, (two players we could desperately use right now), and Belicheat, wih his insider knowledge, scoops em up.

    If Schiano wants to be close to vest with the media, why? So that your opponent wont get any intel??? Then why practice with your opponent??!!

    The depths some of you will go to bash Freeman is nauseating.
    _____________________________________________________________

    How is it bashing to point out stats? He has thrown 39 Ints the last two years. He’s also on a 4 game run with 3TDs, 13 turnovers, 1,000 yards and 53% completion percentage. How many great QBs have runs like that? Guys like Romo, Jay Cutler etc… but Josh can be better than that. He just isn’t progressing. Regardless of the coach a QB should still pick up on things to make him a better QB just by playing. When I watch Freeman I don’t see multiple progressions, looking off safeties, using the pump fake effectively. Generally he either stands back there until either his first read comes open or the check down does, or he rolls out and makes the throw or throws it away. And he does not handle pressure well, we all know this. Too many back foot throws and forces. Sometimes punting is acceptable believe it or not.

    I honestly hope Josh does become the guy. I’m sick of being mediocre, and if Josh becomes the guy we’ll be in the playoffs this year. But I’m not tied to Josh being the guy. If Glennon is the guy, great. If its someone we draft next year, awesome. I don’t care who it is. I watch every game and I see what I see. So many great moments, so many head scratchers. I’m tired of hearing “He did enough”. Doing the bare minimum should not be acceptable. We should expect greatness. We should expect to beat the teams we are supposed to, and do so with ease. If the Bucs start 0-4 they’ll probably go the Glennon, and why not? After 4 seasons, if we still don’t know what Josh Freeman is, isn’t that the worst possible scenario?

    —————————————————————
    He was a positional coach on championship teams. Thats completely different than the HC. Yes he gets credit for some of Eli.. so he’s great candidate for a coordinator’s role. But how can you possibly watch his play calling all last year and through one game of this year and say he’s going to be a great coach… Did you see the game? You can’t possibly blame all those horrible plays on Schiano…

    I do agree that Schiano is part of the problem. He needs to be better. But I just dont see how you can be convinced Sully would do better.

  68. tonytwocents Says:

    “You can’t possibly blame all those horrible plays on Schiano… ”

    without a doubt. Ive watched Schianos pressers and interviews for over a year now. and I know his type. his personality…. not unlike Gruden. but Gruden knew how to delegate certain aspects of coaching. he let Kiffin do his thing, while Gruden focused on his offense.

    as PJ Fleck said, Schiano had his hands in everything at Rutgers. from coaching to marketing. which means that either he’s a control freak, doesnt trust his staff, or both. to me, he comes across as a control freak. I’m sure that he limited Sullys playbook, LIKE YOU SAID COUCH, he had a plan, and stuck with it. just look at the game footage… he was yelling in Sullys ear at the end of the game while Sully was trying to call off a play.

    BUT! I’ve written about this enough this week. Where one of the coaches, or even Schiano himself, will go to the #1 bucs news website and read my words of wisdom… and this may force him to change his ways… Coughlin manned up a few years back and knew he had to settle down a bit, and since then, baller status!

    so if youre reading this Greg… take heed.

  69. 76buc76 Says:

    I view the guy that just cheer’s for the team. Without having an opinion if this player is good. Or is the playcalling suspect. The guy that believes everyone on the team is great, on a losing team is….a loser. Or not that into the sport. Like the wife’s at a hockey game. Those of us that question player’s abilty’s or coaching mistakes or whatever. Are NOT satisfied with mediocrity like Bobby. We strive for better in life and with that our sports team’s. Yes I’m done with Josh Freeman. I have no problem with Schiano or Dom. That’s my opinion and with dvr’s,PFF and online film. More and more fan’s know a lot about football. Time to get with the times….grampa.

    Josh Freeman at KSU

    Games 35 comp % 59.1 yds 8,078 TD 44 INT 34

    Josh Freeman Bucs

    Games 58 comp % 58.6 yds 13, 173 TD 79 INT 64

    I guess his college coach is the reason he sucked in college since it’s Schiano’s fault he is a mediocre NFL QB. He had 1 good year in college and 1 good year in the NFL. The good Josh is the exception and not the norm. Until he shows he can be good Josh consistently he will just be an average NFL QB. It is playoffs or bust for Freeman. If he can’t develop into a good QB by the fifth year in the NFL he does not deserve a new contract. What team in their right mind is going to pay 10+ million a year to develop a 6th year QB next year.

    Couch, you are what I term a “Chaos Fan”.

    Have a bad regular season game? Blame the person not at fault and blow things up.

    The only problem is, when it doesn’t work, you’ll place all the blame on Schiano and Dominick. You know it’s true.

    Unfortunately the Brees rule applies, which states if you don’t pressure the dude he lights ya up for 400+ and multiple touchdowns.

    The depths some of you will go to to defend Freeman are nauseating. Go ahead and make the list of all the franchise QBs who have 39 INTs over 2 seasons. Please, make the list.

    Here is your list:
    Just to name a few for you (this took me all of 5 minutes of my time)

    Dan Marino:
    85-86 = 44 INT
    88-89 = 45 INT

    Drew Brees:
    07-08 = 35 INT
    10-11 = 36 INT

    Peyton Manning:
    98-99 = 43 INT
    01-02 = 42 INT
    09-10 = 33 INT

    Eli Manning:
    06-07 = 38 INT
    10-11 = 41 INT

    It happens a lot more than you think, genius. Nice try though!

    Bonzai

    You are what I call a “settler” you settle for mediocrity. You see how easy it is to lable people and talk out your @ss? Good.

    Now. Your “theory” is completely wrong and rather silly. You dont know me. You dont know how I think but yet you somehow KNOW who I will blame next… though, I have only blamed one person ALL off-season long and continue to blame him….

    Do me a favor and stick to your stats because thats really all you seem to be good at.

  76. Couch Fan Says:

    Oh and making excuses for shitty Qbs also.

  77. Couch Fan Says:

    Oh and you seem rather adept at making excuses for crappy QBs also.

  78. Couch Fan Says:

    Oh and 1 regular season game? No, Freeman has 58 starts under his belt that I have got a chance to watch… He sucks.

    Keep coming up though with silly reasons to try to knock me for my opinion. I’ll keep shooting them all down!
