Josh Freeman: Toast Of Charlotte

September 20th, 2010

The best way to gauge the pulse of a community is to talk to the commoners. By that premise, Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman is king of Charlotte.

As Woody Cummings and his Tampa Tribune entourage were preparing to be whisked back to Tampa, the TBO gang filed into a shuttle van and Cummings overheard the following exchange:

“We’re you headed to today,’’ the driver of the rental car shuttle bus asked.

“Tampa,’’ my associate, Anwar Richardson said.

“Tampa? Man, I can’t believe that Josh Freeman,’’ the driver said. “He looks like the real deal. I’ve got Brett Favre on my fantasy team, but I’m going to pick up Josh Freeman as a free agent.’’

How about that? A fan of a rival NFC South team is so moved by Freeman, he’s ready to jettison an NFL Hall of Fame quarterback for the Bucs young thrower.

    Freeman is my #2 QB in my pay league. The only problem with that is that he is outplaying my #1 Matt Ryan right now. If he keeps this up then I will have to start him. Oh and Mike Williams is my #6 WR and is playing better than my #3 right now.

    LOL, I don’t know about that Joe. I have friends in Greensboro, NC who have some “choice words” for Josh Freeman and Tampa. I had 15 people over to watch the game here in Brandon. All kept saying ‘He’s breaking their backs” about Josh. He killed Carolina.
