Beware What You Say Around Raheem

October 16th, 2009

You know the best way to get some guy hacked off? Talk bad about his significant other.

So it’s understandable that Raheem the Dream would get upset when he heard someone talk bad about Josh Freeman.

Tim Ryan of Sirius NFL Radio, who also works for Fox Network, claims that he heard from someone inside the Bucs organization that the team is not happy with Freeman’s progress.

Raheem the Dream got sort of bent when he heard that, reports Vacation Man of

“Tim Ryan didn’t get that from me, so I’ll just comment on how I feel about Josh Freeman,’’ coach Raheem Morris told the Tampa Bay media Wednesday. “Josh Freeman’s development is really going well. Josh Johnson, however, has been here for a year. He’s been through the six o’clock meetings in the morning, class for a year, he’s known Greg Olson for a year, he’s been through these protections for a year, calling the protections, being on the same page with the center, which we had some issues with this week in the game, but not the fault of a young quarterback, the fault of all of them. And Freeman’s going through that process. So I wouldn’t necessarily say he’s having a problem from the neck up, because everything that Josh Johnson’s doing, Freeman’s doing. He’s going through the process of being the wingman, so to speak. He’s sitting there and learning from Josh and he’s also learning from Byron (Leftwich).”

Easy, Rah.  This was nothing personal on Ryan’s part. No need to take it personally. It was just business.

    I think that’s “BULL” if Freeman was progressing that well he would be playing right now! (how well did Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco progress last year?) I think this was just another of a myriad of bad decisions by a coach (who seems like a great guy and means well) who is WAY out of his league.

  2. Joe Says:


    You also have to admit the Falcons and Ravens had better players to surround their rookie quarterbacks with. Granted, Ryan had a fantastic year. Flacco’s numbers were pedestrian.

    Until that offensive line is repaired and the Bucs start blocking better, no way Joe puts Freeman in there this season. Again, what’s the point?

    Especially for as long as Freeman is hiden in the depth chart Morris can say whatever he wants to try and convence fans that Freeman is talented but once Freeman is in the game everyone will see if Freeman is all that Morris makes him out to be or prove that Freeman was just ANOTHER extremely poor choice in a long list of bad decisions by this regime!
