Losses To Panthers And Pats = Freeman

October 16th, 2009

The NFL’s in-house reporter, Jason LaCanfora, a man with infinite access and accomodating sources, is telling fans that the Josh Freeman era is on track to begin against the Green Bay Packers on Nov. 8.

But there is one caveat, per LaCanfora’s video report on, the Bucs must lose their next two games.

“Watch the bye week,” LaCanfora said. “If they lose [against Carolina] and lose in London to New England, people in that organization expect the move to be made leading into their bye week Nov. 1, and going with the first round pick Josh Freeman in the second half of the season.”

So there it is. No Bucs fan should be surprised.

Freeman’s in the bullpen and Raheem The Dream is nine days away from picking up the phone — maybe.

The Bucs, if they don’t truly stink as badly as they appear, should really beat Carolina on Sunday. And, of course, they’re staring down the barrel at a good beating in London against New England the following week.

If Josh Johnson can’t get a W in the next two, it’ll be nearly impossible for Raheem The Dream to keep Freeman off the field.

Joe suspects the Glazers’ patience will have worn out with an 0-7 record fresh off getting mauled by the British media, which no doubt take some powerful shots at the Bucs.
