More Photos From One Buc Palace

April 26th, 2009

There are further photos being leaked from the Bucs war room yesterday afternoon. Joe thought he would share them.

“Hey Raheem, there have been 16 selections already. And Josh Freeman is still there!”

“Ha! The Browns were stupid enough to give us their first round pick at No. 17! Can you believe it?”

“We did it! We did it! We got Freeman!”

“Well, our day is done Mark. I’m heading home. I’m sure going to sleep good tonight!”

    As a life long Buccaneers I am optimistic about a chance at franchise QB. Freeman was overall rated higher as a QB than both Sanchez and Stafford. I do think he was a HUGE reach at 17 and clearly this new coaching staff has rolled the dice, their futures will be linked to his success or failure as an NFL QB. We’ll see what happens. Clearly the Bucs don’t believe that McCown is our future, nor did I, nor do most fans Bucs if they are honest. My prediction is that Freeman comes on to the field in week 6 of the 2009 season after a 1-5 start what happens beyond that is anyone guess but my hopes are that he becomes the Buccaneers 1st Hall of Fame QB, ah how sweet it would be… To quote Chucky, we need to live in our hopes not in our fears, it’s easy to hate this pick but my pewter glasses are on and the future is bright….

    One correction Freeman was rated higher as an overall QB statistic wise in the 2008 NCAA season. He was 38, Stafford was 43 and Sanchez was 51 over all. This did not include rushing yards which I would assume Freeman was higher than both. We shall see…

    First, thanks for following Joe on Twitter!

    As for Freeman, rated by who?

    What did “they” base the ratings on? Did “they” factor in how hideous defenses were in the Big XII?

    All Joe knows is that no quarterback in the past two decades drafted in the first round who didn’t complete 60 percent of his passes in his final college season amounted to a hill of beans in the NFL. And far more often than not, juniors drafted in the first round struggle.

    Joe sure hopes Freeman breaks the mold. Joe isn’t so sure given the above information and the fact he played in a spread option style offense. Spread option quarterbacks rarely do anything in the NFL.

    Past two draft picks have been solid!
