Totally agree… The problem with Josh was never his arm, it was his attitude, his decision making, and his leadership. I want a QB with that killer instinct that refuses to lose and plays a smart game. Hopefully Glennon can be that guy!
Tim Tebow was a good leader too. If Glennon has the same poor accuracy and bad decision-making that he did in college and pre-season, then Bucs should try the Teebster and hope for a miracle. Or at least a high draft pick.
If the line is blocking, and Martin is Martin, we can survive a while with a game mgr. I don’t expect the guy to come in and carry the team and make line calls.
That’s the thing, Dominick loaded the offense for Freeman. It doesn’t need Manning back there. Sure, it’s thin at #3 and TE, but show me any offense that is stacked at WR#1-#3, TE, RB, and OL. There has to be $ for the defense too.
@ Apple Roof. I have to respectfully disagree with you. Actually all we need is a game manager and a QB that avoids mistakes. Don’t mistake game manager for being average at best. There’s only a couple elite QB’s. A lot of people prematurely threw Kaepernick in that bunch and we are seeing as is my fantasy team that he is not on that level. Look at the 3-0 KC Chiefs with Alex Smith. He’s a game manager but he also makes the throws when he needs to. With the Eagles riding some momentum and coming back, the Chiefs had a 3rd and 8 from their own 15 yard line or so and he drilled a pass in there for a huge first down. Thats the kind of Qb we need. We dont need our Qb to be a constant playmaker or own audibles etc. like Peyton, just play smart, hold onto the ball, and make some throws.
“Avoid mistakes and make progressions and we will be a contender. It was true of the beginning of the season and while we are in a pretty deep hole, it’s still true. Josh Freeman was unable to avoid the mistakes and make progressions. ”
Somebody posted this in another thread (and forgive me for not crediting your username as I forget) and it is spot on. Throw the ball to the open guy and let him make a play. Tom Brady “drove” the Pats down the field on 3-4 yard drags that the players took for 7-8 yards a pop. That’s how you MOVE THE CHAINS. I was astounded at the amount of throws that Josh was making that were down field. Just dump the ball off and let the PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL PLAYER try to make a move.
I WAS a Freeman fan and want everybody that this team drafts to become a HoF and lead the team to the spoils of victory in the Super Bowl. I have #5′s jersey (stitched, game day no less…) and it pains me that I cannot continue to support his play (or lack thereof). The change needed to be made so that the team nor the fans could continue to harp on the horrid play of one player. Now the accountability, and possible excuses, are on the rest of the team. This move was a team awakening because we know where the majority of the blame was being placed. That person is no longer in the position to carry the blame. We better see some improvement this Sunday.
I hope this dumpster fire continues to the tune of 3-13 season. Otherwise the Bucs will go into 2014 with the Italian Stallion at HC and the Galloping Giraffe at QB. These last 10 years are starting to feel a lot like the 80′s/ early 90′s. It needs to get worse before it gets better.
- Rahb Your little kitten holding MVP didn’t do anything to help propel our franchise into anything! Yes 2010 was a great statistical year for us that got us to the play…..oh wait…..nowhere, but false hopes and dreams!
I hope “your man” Josh gets a gig somewhere else and salvages his career, but he couldn’t get the job done here in Tampa! Save me the excuses, we have seen other QB’s do way more with less!!!
Go w/ your boy and get off the ship if you are going to cry and wine about a change in QB! Maybe you can help wake him up in the mornings or schedule his next photo shoot! Beat it!
