Freeman Talks Alarm Clocks, Teammates & MoreSeptember 29th, 2013
The awaited exclusive Josh Freeman interview just aired on BSPN and, among other things, Freeman revealed that his missed team photo shoot was caused by a wee-hours power outage that left his alarm clock blinking and showing “12:00.”
Freeman said he saw the clock on the sun up on Labor Day and felt awful. “I think I took it a lot harder than anyone else” on the team, Freeman said.
On the switch to Mike Glennon, Freeman said he thinks Glennon has good skills but “I don’t really understand the decision.”
Freeman said teammates were uncomfortable with the move to Glennon.
Speaking on BSPN’s pregame show, Keyshawn Johnson said the benching of Freeman is the start of “the blame game” from a coach on a very hot seat. Others on the BSPN crew said it should be obvious that Freeman’s performance led to the change. Chris Mortenson went on to say many of those outside the Bucs organization, who once worked alongside Freeman in the organization, are telling him that Freeman’s career is salvageable because of the great leadership and work ethic reputation he had.
