I don’t disagree with Herm. And I also believe tht Freeman needs to be more head strong, grow thicker skin – especially dealing with mind-playing Egomaniacs like Greg…….and then prove our sham of a HC wrong with the talent that we all know he has.
Good one yea i dont disagree because freeman does alot more studdering than he did when he first came in the league and yes im sure he does feel lost. as a rookie you come in to a rookie qb and first time gm, then that coach gets fired and you get another first time head coach…he needs to go somewhere and sit behind a real nfl quarterback thats head strong and knows how to win because if you think about it…..byron leftwich, josh johnson and orvlosky they wont cut it, luke mc clown…this guy has never had any competition or a veteran qb with success to draw from
he’s never been groomed like mike glennon is and i hope he has all the success in the world i really do, no matter what you feel about freeman love em or hate em he’s gone and im a buc fan first but i do think he has talent…i think he’s sort like sam bradford, this guys been beatin senseless since he came into the league and hasnt reached his potential because they wont protect him with lineman
I saw that take yesterday on TV and Herm hit the nail on the head when it comes to Freeman. That’s why to a degree I blame Dom and Schiano for having to rely on a rookie now. A rookie or Orlovsky. Wow not very good backup options. I think the front office and the coach saw this coming with Freeman way before the season started. So they should be held accountable for not bringing in a better option at QB if they thought that Freeman might turn out the way he has played.
Sometimes we forget that Freeman is being paid….to play or to sit…8.43 million…he has an obligation to his employer to earn that.
I’m sure if he never got another contract he would be financially secure for the rest of his life…thanks to the Bucs & the NFL.
Josh Freeman is proving by his actions that we did the right thing.
His on-field performance hurt him…his off-field is killing him!!!
Freeman had every opportunity to step up an win a new contract. If we had one those first two games….or even one of them, I think Freeman would still be starting.
Instead of steping up…Freeman folded…you can blame his coaching all you wish…but the bottom line is Freeman folds under pressure…..on the road, against winning teams, in December and when challenged by a 3rd round pick.
I thought Freeman put us in a position to win those first two games. But somehow you claim he folded. Just shutup and let’s move on. It people like you that makes me hope Freeman is successful in the future.
Freeman put us in a position to lose both games with his poor play for 3 1/2 guarters……Sure he moved down the field at the end….I give him credit for that…but you have to look at his entire body of work
And as far as me shutting up and moving on….you must be talking to Joe also….because he is the one who is putting out all the Freeman articles.
How about you shutting up!! You can root for Freeman in the future at another team…I choose to root for the Bucs now!
I have been a Freeman hopeful all the way to the end…I do think the plug was pulled one game too early…but I’m not behind the scenes…it looks like the Glazers or Dom pulled the plug…possibly because of a desire to try to trade him.
Freeman is the one who screwed this up.
Now that he’s gone, I will be a Glennon hopeful…what other choice as a fan do I have?
Tampabaybucfan …exactly…some of us like being fans. Some of us like to think we are the GM. Some of us like to think our last name is Glazer, and some of us like to think we are Nostradamus. I’m just fine with being a fan.
Joe to me the telling thing was in the first game and his headset went out. He could not call a play and prevent a delay of game or a time out. He is a five year QB who should know the game plan and what to call, he could not think fast enough. I think this is his problem under pressure, he can’t think fast enough to do the right thing, so his throws are almost always late or not in the ballpark of the receiver. His first year, he did not think, he just did it, then he started thinking.
Good post. My turning point for Josh was the Dallas game last year. No time outs, down by less than a TD, under 2 minutes to go, his headset goes out and he called a freaking running play on 3rd and long.
