Schiano Says Freeman Is “On The Rise”

August 6th, 2013

I think he’s been like this, on the rise. I think he’s getting better every practice. You can see the command and control that he brought back into this training camp. And then quickly after a couple of practices when he shaked the rust off, the throws started happening, with all the receivers. Not just Vincent and not just Mike, all the way down to the fifth, sixth receivers, I think we’ve been throwing the ball efficiently. Today, a couple of stops on third down ended drives. But overall I’m pleased. — Greg Schiano, after being asked to assess Josh Freeman’s training camp performance today.

You can almost hear the excitement in Schiano’s voice, as delivered on the Ron and Ian show on WDAE-AM 620. (Audio below).

Also asked to name a camp standout, Schiano’s lips quickly moved to WR Chris Owusu. No surprise there.

    Robert would you like your crow deep fried or baked? Lol! #5 will rise to the occasion.

    gotta admit Six Flags is the perfect nickname for JF5, at his peak he’s elite but when he’s at the bottom, Mark Sanchez is shaking his head in disgust

    This is Six Flag’s last chance to not be Six Flags anymore. I hope at least.

    I expect that crap from our resident idiot robert, but this coming from Ian “weak link” Beckles. How you made it nine years in the NFL is beyond me. The league must have been hard up and lean for guards back then. For six years you were a human sieve on a pathetic Bucs team who had nothing what resembles a competent QB like Freeman. In fact you never ate pineapple in Hawaii either. Go ahead pile-on and make fun of Freeman you opinionated underachiever.

    Wow, sensitive much? Lol

    Sheesh some people just cant take criticism well.

  7. Justin Says:

    Where is Shaun King now? How come he has nothing to say about this?

    @couch slug

    What? Just doing a little criticising myself.

  9. Buc1987 Says:

    @Buc’n Junkie…..LOL torched. Ian I smell burnt toast.

  10. Chris Says:

    Good. It’s never been a question about Josh’s talent not ability. It’s the mental aspect. Too much thinking out there and decision making. Hopefully this translates well to the reg season.

  11. Buc1987 Says:

    Just trust in Schiano and staff. They will fix Freeman. If you don’t trust Freeman atleast trust in the staff. He will be fixed.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    I guess we better get used to hearing the name Owusu for awhile. I think he’s going to stick around.

    @Crack Junkie

    Personal insults are not criticizing, its merely a ploy of the weak minded Lol, but hey keep doing you.
