“When I Wear My Helmet It Feels So Good”

December 17th, 2010

Gordita-friendly quarterback Josh Freeman sat down on the Buccaneers Radio Network last night to answer an unusually large number of fan questions.

Freeman was sent in all sorts of directions. Joe scribbled down some for you.

On why he wears No. 5, Freeman said he took No. 5 because he didn’t want to pay Luke McCown for No. 12.

On growing out his fro: “When I wear my helmet it feels so good.”

On the funniest thing he’s seen in the NFL: Freeman picked Donald Penn’s catch, run and first-down celebration last year in Philadelphia.

Freeman said Josh Johnson lining up at wide receiver in not a decoy. He said there are presnap reads where the Bucs would throw him the ball. Freeman said Johnson has good hands.

As for Sunday, Freeman said Detroit likes to press man coverage and look for the Bucs to go deep after that man-to-man coverage. (Joe sincerely hopes that doesn’t happen on second down of the first drive after LeGarrette Blount runs for six yards on first down.)

Freeman said he’s “a bit of a momma’s boy. I love my ma. I didn’t want to be too far away from her.” He said that was a  factor in him picking Kansas State despite having offers from “every conference.”

    I’m reminded of a clip from that Lion’s vlog segment, where the guy in the hat acknowledges that McCoy was considered for the number 2 pick. He then says, well I guess Suh won that battle.

    Well, I GUESS, that the Bucs and Freeman won the battle of rookie qb’s in ’09 and Blount looks like he’s winning the battle between he and Jahvid Best, this year.

    But they’re right, “the Bucs haven’t beat a team with a winning record.” Apparently even teams that are 3-10 will take a ride on ESPN’s dead horse…
