    I don’t disagree with Herm. And I also believe tht Freeman needs to be more head strong, grow thicker skin – especially dealing with mind-playing Egomaniacs like Greg…….and then prove our sham of a HC wrong with the talent that we all know he has.

  2. RBellBuc Says:

    ^^^ I agree

  3. Splengo Says:

    Ditto. Freeman needs to be diplomatic, poised and professional, collect the remainder of his 8.43mil, then move on to the next team and show us that he can succeed in the NFL.

    Good one yea i dont disagree because freeman does alot more studdering than he did when he first came in the league and yes im sure he does feel lost. as a rookie you come in to a rookie qb and first time gm, then that coach gets fired and you get another first time head coach…he needs to go somewhere and sit behind a real nfl quarterback thats head strong and knows how to win because if you think about it…..byron leftwich, josh johnson and orvlosky they wont cut it, luke mc clown…this guy has never had any competition or a veteran qb with success to draw from

    he’s never been groomed like mike glennon is and i hope he has all the success in the world i really do, no matter what you feel about freeman love em or hate em he’s gone and im a buc fan first but i do think he has talent…i think he’s sort like sam bradford, this guys been beatin senseless since he came into the league and hasnt reached his potential because they wont protect him with lineman

    I saw that take yesterday on TV and Herm hit the nail on the head when it comes to Freeman. That’s why to a degree I blame Dom and Schiano for having to rely on a rookie now. A rookie or Orlovsky. Wow not very good backup options. I think the front office and the coach saw this coming with Freeman way before the season started. So they should be held accountable for not bringing in a better option at QB if they thought that Freeman might turn out the way he has played.

  6. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Sometimes we forget that Freeman is being paid….to play or to sit…8.43 million…he has an obligation to his employer to earn that.
    I’m sure if he never got another contract he would be financially secure for the rest of his life…thanks to the Bucs & the NFL.
    Josh Freeman is proving by his actions that we did the right thing.
    His on-field performance hurt him…his off-field is killing him!!!

  7. RBellBuc Says:

    What’s the line on the FlaST vs. BC game?

  8. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Freeman had every opportunity to step up an win a new contract. If we had one those first two games….or even one of them, I think Freeman would still be starting.
    Instead of steping up…Freeman folded…you can blame his coaching all you wish…but the bottom line is Freeman folds under pressure…..on the road, against winning teams, in December and when challenged by a 3rd round pick.

    Go Noles! Go Famous Jameis!

  11. RBellBuc Says:


    I thought Freeman put us in a position to win those first two games. But somehow you claim he folded. Just shutup and let’s move on. It people like you that makes me hope Freeman is successful in the future.

  12. Couch Fan Says:

    Well clearly thinking is not your Forte RBellBuc. Stick to trolling, your at least adequate at that.

  13. Rahb Says:

    So Herm basically told us THE NFL IS A CHARADE!

    Don’t let anybody know how you feel about a situation that just cost you $100 Million? Just stay quiet while everybody with a microphone rips you and then rips you even more when you respond.

    Maybe Freeman has other things he’d like to do with his life and doesn’t need to “Play Nice” to stay in the league or land a talking head job.

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    Tampabaybucfan…yah this thread is for Freeman lovers only..don’t cha know..

  15. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    Freeman put us in a position to lose both games with his poor play for 3 1/2 guarters……Sure he moved down the field at the end….I give him credit for that…but you have to look at his entire body of work
    And as far as me shutting up and moving on….you must be talking to Joe also….because he is the one who is putting out all the Freeman articles.
    How about you shutting up!! You can root for Freeman in the future at another team…I choose to root for the Bucs now!

  16. rdbucfan Says:


    yah this thread is for Freeman lovers only..don’t cha know..

    Don’t you mean Joshstrappers instead of Freeman lovers?

  17. rdbucfan Says:


    Well said. I will always root for the bucs. If you’re no longer a Buc I will no longer root for you.

    Schiano should have never said Josh was the backup. I believed if Josh was benched he should be the inactive QB.

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    rdbucfan …well there are a few stragglers left…where the hell has Raphael been all week?

  19. Buc1987 Says:

    “If you’re no longer a Buc I will no longer root for you.”

    I second that.

  20. rdbucfan Says:


    I think he said he was going on vacation or out of town. Could be on a bender though. He must be crushed.

  21. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    @rdbucfan & 87

    I have been a Freeman hopeful all the way to the end…I do think the plug was pulled one game too early…but I’m not behind the scenes…it looks like the Glazers or Dom pulled the plug…possibly because of a desire to try to trade him.
    Freeman is the one who screwed this up.
    Now that he’s gone, I will be a Glennon hopeful…what other choice as a fan do I have?

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    Tampabaybucfan …exactly…some of us like being fans. Some of us like to think we are the GM. Some of us like to think our last name is Glazer, and some of us like to think we are Nostradamus. I’m just fine with being a fan.

  23. OB Says:

    Joe to me the telling thing was in the first game and his headset went out. He could not call a play and prevent a delay of game or a time out. He is a five year QB who should know the game plan and what to call, he could not think fast enough. I think this is his problem under pressure, he can’t think fast enough to do the right thing, so his throws are almost always late or not in the ballpark of the receiver. His first year, he did not think, he just did it, then he started thinking.

  24. rdbucfan Says:


    Good post. My turning point for Josh was the Dallas game last year. No time outs, down by less than a TD, under 2 minutes to go, his headset goes out and he called a freaking running play on 3rd and long.

  25. teacherman777 Says:

    Trade with the ViKINGS

    Jared Allen (final year of his contract 10 million) and a third round pick


    Josh Freeman and a 7th rounder.

    Getting rid of Allen, who is 31, will free up cap space for Josh.

    Come on guys!!!

    Spread the word!!

    Joe gives the girls the weekend off; always has (and often, major holidays, too). They do such a good job during the week, they too need rest and relaxation.
