“He Is A Guy I Am Proud To Play For”

May 20th, 2013

Josh Freeman and Greg Schiano

Just as Bucs coach Greg Schiano was determined to knock off all the quarterback controversy talk this afternoon after the Bucs’ first OTA practice of the calendar year, so too was Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman determined to dismiss the notion that he and Schiano don’t get along.

As he was mobbed on the practice fields of One Buc Palace on his way to the locker room, Freeman noted that instead of clashing with Schiano, the two have developed a close bond.

“Me and coach have a great relationship,” Schiano said. “I go up there [to Schiano’s office] at least every week and sit down and talk about football, talk about the team, talk about life. I’ve gotten to know Coach Schiano real well. He is a guy I am proud to play for.”

Freeman also waved off talk that third-round pick Mike Glennon may unseat him as the Bucs starting signal-caller.

“You want the best possible option behind you,” Freeman said of Glennon. “Mike completely fits. Down the road if we are making a run and something happens to me, you want a guy who can come in and keep it going. I am excited about [having] Mike, glad to have him about. Ready to get this rolling.”

    Always a class act….says exactly the right things and we have never had the urge to wipe that “Camlike” smile off his face.
    There is no controversy for the exception of the press (that includes Joe) who thrive on controversy. In the age of 24/7 365 Cable TV and Internet, what would fill the time if no controversy. From one subject to the next….Winslow, Talib, Revis & now Glennon…this will remain until the next one pops up.
    There’s no blame here…its just business.

    @Free’s a Boob

    Now you’re just reaching for an insult.

    One would think that a “franchise” QB would be able to coverse in proper English. Listen to Willson, RGIII, Manning and so on.

    All I can say at this point is, Gentlemen learn the system-know the terminology-banish the term “miscommunication”-learn proper progressions and be accurate with your throws. Oh ya, wasn’t it refreshing not to hear some dork bitching about “toes on the line”. Seemed like we had all adults out there today who cam to play.

    Man I think a lot of this is media blown. Do I think schiano got frustrated over Josh’s erratic play. But I do not think one bit he and freeman had a bad relationship.

    There’s a difference between questioning the play of freeman and wanting to get the best put of a talented qb.glennon was brought in for competition and if josh either struggles or gets injured.

    “Enough said” is not a sentence.

    YOU should learn some proper grammar. How moronic do you have to be to critique the smallest grammatical errors in someone’s speech? Is THIS your proof Freeman sucks? You’re a boob.

    You also capitalized the “m” in “moron”? I guess we know who the real moron is. Also, no punctuation at the end? What a hypocrite.
