Sickest QB Sneak In Bucs History?

November 28th, 2010

Joe hopes Greg Olson got a good look at Josh Freeman’s bruising, Blountesque quarterback sneak for about five big yards on the Bucs’ final drive today.

The guy is the toughest QB to drag down in the NFL. Has Freeman ever missed on a QB sneak?

Now Joe suspects Freeman called that himself, but Joe’s quite certain Freeman didn’t make the call forego the sneak and hand the ball off to LeGarrette Blount with the game on the line in Atlanta.

Yeah, Joe’s still bitter about that and couldn’t let it go after seeing Freeman’s sick sneak today.

    joe read your post below and agree 100% about the play callin. Sometimes it looks like Olson doesnt have a clue. Its really frustrating watching his calls. We should have opened it up a little more in the middle of the third when we were down 14. To me it just seems like Freeman is more in synch when he is in the 2 min drill.

    I agree Joe. Freeman is going to be a great QB. I just wish Olsen would have spread things out about half way into the 3rd quarter.

    Olson was clueless in this game.I have been giving the man a lot of credit but he did not adapt his game plan when the Bucs fell behind.Also thought it was Josh’s worst performance of the year.The defense however played a good game and kept us close if the offense cound have held up thier end.

    Freeman was a beast on the sneak. He was pretty much stuffed behind the line of scrimmage and managed (somewhat like a FB) to keep his legs moving and gain the first down and about 5 yards.

    It worked twice, but I’m not sure how often they can pull that off in a game and be successful. Blount is also not the answer in those 3rd and 4th down and short yardage situations. He’s also been stuffed too much, and he seems to take too long to hit the hole or getting up to speed to hit it. I believe we should be using Earnest Graham in those situations from here on out.
