Vacation Man Big On McCown

June 15th, 2009

While one can read between the whispers coming out of One Buc Palace that Byron Leftwich may have a slight upperhand in the four-way battle for the quarterback job, Vacation Man of BSPN.com has yet to be won over by Leftwich. He’s still in Luke McCown’s corner.

In a recent NFC South blog chat, Vacation Man prefers Luke McCown for┬ástarting Bucs quarterback in 2009. In fact, the way Vacation Man writes, it’s as if Leftwich is the No. 3 quarterback, if he’s even on the roster. Vacation Man doesn’t write that about Leftwich, but the implication is there.

John (Lafayette, La): Who stood out in the bucs quarterback competition while you were covering them yesterday? How is Luke looking?

Vacation Man: Luke looks fine — efficient. Freeman had that one bomb that I wrote about that was absolutely beautiful. Fun to watch.

ben (tampa): regarding freeman and the bucs, im holding out for freeman hoping he becomes a great player. If you were HC who would you start, and do you think the bucs finally have that elusive franchise QB

Vacation Man: Start McCown and let Freeman sit a bit. If they struggle, go to Freeman around midseason. If they win with McCown, great and let Freeman take over next year.

Vacation Man seems to be the lone person in the MSM suggesting McCown is leading the crowded pack. Joe just hopes that Raheem the Dream is able to pick the right guy to bark signals come September.

    Funny how Vacation Man is the only one in the MSM who’s actually been to OBP to see for themself. But why should that matter, huh Joe? The MSM are the last people I’d take anything from regarding the Bucs. I’m sure you know that, but you have to get your material somewhere. Here’s an idea, try making your own decisions based on what YOU see.

    Joe here,

    Dave it’s always a pleasure. You’re on to something. Joe’s media credentials for 2009 are coming soon. Then you will read much more of Joe’s first-hand accounts.
