“More Of Those Type Of Rhythm Throws”

October 18th, 2012

Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan agreed that Josh Freeman has been inconsistent, during a chat session with media types yesterday.

However, Sullivan also reminded that even the great quarterbacks have their down moments and series, and “miss some wide open targets.”

Sullivan said he wants to see Freeman be more trusting of his receivers and the offense, think less and “let it flow.”

One thing Sullivan said could help is getting Freeman “more of those type of rhythm throws.”

Joe hopes this means more slants, which was a huge weapon for Freeman in 2012

    On the slants, I think you meant 2010.

    I’m pretty sure they are going to try to get the TE more involved in the beginning for the shorter throws, because the safeties are going to be back trying to protect the deep pass. I’m looking for more slants and outs for Dallas Clark to kill the loose underneath coverage.

    The good thing about this team you do not know what to defend. The deep pass, the running game, or the underneath throws. It all boils down to Josh and this short pass accuracy.

    Tradfe Freeman to Pittsburg the last failed Qb experiment should be out of the NFL by next year.. Where did this guy from Seatle come from?? He puts Freeman to shame!!

    Sullivan isn’t even comfortable with the terminology. Clearly out of his league. Maybe, Butch Davis should call the plays from above.

    Shaun King said to go with your strengths, he was right on the mark. Maybe, he should consider a coaching career.

    Anyone speaking against Freeman clearly has no inkling of common sense…nor an accurate sense of talent.

    Or has no more credence than Miguel.

    There are so many things wrong with this statement, it’s tough to know where to start. First of all, Butch Davis cannot call the plays. He’s not a coach, he’s an advisor. Second of all, Butch Davis is a defensive coach, Coach Sullivan is the offensive coordinator. Not sure if you understand this concept, but typically defensive coaches don’t call offensive plays. Perhaps you should learn what you are saying before you say it, don’t you think? And finally, what makes you think he’s not comfortable with the terminology? He’s been teaching the system for years. The only thing he has never done is playcalling, and that has been steadily improving each week. I thought he called a tremendous game last week. Of course, I highly doubt you even understand what the word “terminology” means anyway.
