Freeman Market Widens; Decision Imminent

October 6th, 2013

It seems like Josh Freeman could be the star of a LeBron James style “decision” on NFL Network tomorrow morning.

Per FOX insider Jay Glazer and, there’s a hefty market for Freeman’s services, including the 49ers, and Freeman will make a decision shortly after tonight’s Raiders-Chargers game. Kickoff is 11:30 p.m. EST. (Yes. 11:30 p.m.)

Glazer also says the Raiders and Vikings are the frontrunners.  The Bills also are interested, but Freeman realizes that his stint likely would end once EJ Manuelreturns from a knee injury.

As to Oakland, Glazer said that coach Dennis Allen spoke to Freeman by phone on Friday, and that Freeman would walk right in as the starter.  (Which likely is news to Terrelle Pryor.)

Joe would enjoy the intrigue surrounding Freeman re-uniting with former Bucs offensive coordinator Greg Olson in Oakland, if Freeman would be the instant starter, as the report claims. It’ll also be interesting to see what kind of salary Freeman commands and whether Freeman is willing to sign with the Raiders without denying them the right to franchise tag him at the end of the season.

    Though I can see him going to the raiders I’d say the Vikings give him a better chance to thrive.

  2. Walter Says:

    Go to the Vikings Freeman, they need you! Plus if you do well there, the fans will love you like a hero. Plus you could tell Fran Tarkenton to suck it, and then break all his team records.

  3. Pewter Bullion Says:

    Good for you Freeman! I wish you had more opportunity to DEVELOP here, but the Bucs were never interested in your “development” as can be seen by the coaching you were surrounded with. I will follow whatever team you join closely. Go Bucs!

  4. Capt. Tim Says:

    This is only news to Couch, buc1987, and a few others.

    Josh was mishandled by two bad rookie coaches.

    With a professional coach and offense- Josh will thrive
    And kick our ass for years to come.

    This again proves that many Tampa bay fans wouldn’t know a QB if one kicked them in the balls.

    Which I wish had happened! Idiots!

    Now we are stuck with a immobile, happy footed statue, and the disgusting Rutgers offense!!

    Oh yeah, we are in major rebuild mode.

    Fire Shiano and Dom!

  5. 911bucs Says:

    double dippin. Guess he gets the last laugh after all.

  6. bucrightoff Says:

    “Josh was manipulating. Everyone thought Schiano was but I don’t think he’s that kind of guy.”

    Ronde Barber, during todays broadcast of the Saints-Bears game he’s calling.

    Interesting to say the least.

  7. Couch Fan Says:

    Freeman will lead the Raiders/Vikings to the Super Bowl.

    – Said no smart person ever

  8. 911bucs Says:

    hahaha good one,,,

  9. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ pewter bullion
    you say
    “the Bucs were never interested in your “development” as can be seen by the coaching you were surrounded witth”

    That is so absurd I’d be embarrassed to post it. Freeman had over 4 years to develop & can’t blame his coaches (several HC, OC &QB for his lack of development. Just how long is “development” supposed to take?

  10. Jason77 Says:

    Freeman, is a head case.

  11. buc4lyfe Says:

    Cushion fan

    Once again your worried about the wrong thing, glennon is clearly a downgrade to people who actually football. Vikings are a playoff with Freeman on the roster, I doubt anyone would stack the box with free under center which means ap can run wild

    Glennon will lead the buccaneers to the Super Bowl.
    – Said by no smart person ever, you don’t count as smart couch fan

  12. Couch Fan Says:


    Im not worried about anything. I am commenting on this article. Feel Free though to spew your stupidity about something that is irrelevant to this article.

    Oh and btw Glennon has yet to prove he is totally and completely garbage like Free has.

  13. Capt. Tim Says:

    Lmao- but Couch actually DID predict Glennon would lead us to the SuperBowl!
    As a Rookie!!!
    The only way Glennon sees a Super Bowl, is if his Skinny butt buys a ticket!! Lol

    Freeman proved he could win 10 games with a crappy rookie Coach. Then he proved that he was to smart to to look bad, running a lunatics lame college offense!
    He asked for a trade before the draft- but did eventually force a trade!! Smart kid!
    I wouldn’t play for Pasta Nazi. The ready of that locker room is quickly coming to that conclusion!
    Fire him, trade the older vets- and get this damn rebuild started!!

    Fire Shiano and Dom!

  14. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ Captain Tim

    If Freeman asked for a trade before the draft….you can add “liar” to the long list of Freeman attributes.

  15. Couch Fan Says:

    I dont remember saying Super Bowl, I did say playoffs though. And I dont remember saying THIS year either. But thats ok. I dont care if I did nor am I ashamed of it.

    See thats called being a fan and having hope for someone who is UNPROVEN.

    Unlike you who seems to have your head stuck up a KNOWN losers butt while bashing your so called favorite team.

    What is even funnier is that in your little pea brain, you find it funny to bash me for supporting the team and an unproven rookie.


    Keep em coming lil timmy boy. I need entertainment during the bye week

  16. Capt. Tim Says:

    Don’t really watch much football, do you?
    Freeman has had 2 horrible ROOKIE coaches!!
    He has had to Learn 3 different Offenses, from 3 FIRST TIME NFL coordinators.

    What kind of fool would think that’s the way to develop a 23 year old QB??
    Um, couch, Bucfan1987, a couple others!
    Hopefully not you, when you really think about it.

    This guy has the potential to be an elite QB.
    Glennon does not. Neither does Dan Olveskey.

    Now- thanks to the Pasta Nazi and his horrible Rotten Rutgers offense, we join the sad rank of Teams without a QB. We are starting over.
    Shiano’s head must roll- and so must Dom’s, for wasting all this team- and our young QB!!!

    You know what they call a great team, with a Glennon at QB??
    A LOSING team!

    Fire Shiano and Dom

  17. Couch Fan Says:

    He has had to Learn 3 different Offenses, from 3 FIRST TIME NFL coordinators.


    But if he didnt suck so badly he would of had more time with 1 offense. But his play got Rah/Olsen fired. And his play got him benched, which led to him pouting like a little girl on national TV which then got him kicked off the team.

    See you have your theory and then there is reality.

  18. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ Captain Timmy

    I watched enough of Freeman to know that hop-skipping passes to backs and throwing jump balls up for recievers to win their match doesn’t have anything to do with development…and if he goes to Oakland..he goes right back to one of those coaches you mentioned….one who probably has no idea what he’s doing…therefore he wants Freeman.

  19. Capt. Tim Says:

    No. I think it’s funny that someone who is so totally ignorant about football, would so frequently broadcast his stupidity on a football post!!

    You would be better served, to get a flashing Neon sign that says ” I’m a clueless fool”- and parade with it, up and down Dale Mabry by the Stadium.

    But, however you want to warn us, is your business.

    But don’t Worry- I’m sure ” winning Glennon” will still get us in the playoffs these season!


  20. Couch Fan Says:

    Oh. Very informative Lil Timmy. Your insults more useful than your attempts at informative posts.

    Funny? I find it funny that you have to dedicate an entire post to try to insult me. LMAO

    Smart people dont have to brag about being smart.

    Keep em coming lil timmy boy.

  21. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ Lieutenant Tim

    You’ve just been demoted for resorting to insults because you can’t win a debate. I will be happy when Freeman lands somewhere so you can root for him there. I don’t wish either of you ill will….just adios!!!

  22. Capt. Tim Says:

    If you knew enough about football, you would know what coverages Josh was looking at. It’s not hard to see!

    Schianos Rutgers offense only has two Pass options inmost plays. The WRs. He keeps the TEs and RBs in to block. As John Lynch pointed out last year( every single game, for the last 8 games!!), the Cbs knew the plays so well- they would actually go to where Jackson/Williams were going to end up!!
    They would go stand on the Side line, and wait for Our WRs to meet them there!

    It’s a joke of an offense. That’s why Shitano keeps saying a slot Reciever and TE aren’t important to this offense.

    Read this- by an unbiased NFL scheme analyst
    It’s “Rutgers offense” posted last Wednesday on JoeBuc.

    It’s an idiotic offense- that leaves a QB no options. Shitano couldn’t win with it at Rutgers!

    That’s why Freeman asked to be traded. What kind of Fool would want to play that offense??
    Um, Couch, Buc1987, Tampabaybucfan, . .

  23. White Tiger Says:


    these are the lamest, tamest, anti-Freeman posts in the past week…could it be that even you guys know you’re in for a L-O-N-G season?

    Nah, couldn’t be – that would require critical thinking skills – all you know is how to blame who you’re told to blame.

    Meanwhile, this coach keeps finding new ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory…

    Schiano – the guy that coaches just good enough to get you beat close.

    Go Schiano (to the unemployment line)!

  24. BigMacAttack Says:

    Today was the best day for the Bucs is a long time. Ans Schiano didn’t totally suck today.

  25. White Tiger Says:

    oh, and uh….

    I told you so.

    Get used to that saying – you guys are going to hear a lot of it.

  26. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ White Tiger

    “could it be that even you guys know you’re in for a L-O-N-G season?”

    Aren’t you in for a long season with us? Or you rooting for someone else?

  27. PRBucFan Says:

    No one should give a damn how he plays once he puts another uniform on.
    The ONLY thing that mattered was how he played when he was here.

    He had his YEARS here and he didn’t cut it, he had his chance, and he failed.

    He LOST way more than he WON, REGARDLESS of the situation.

    His time was up, if he wins good, if he loses good, it means nothing here.

  28. Just A Juggalo Says:

    Funny how you experts said nobody would want him. Now 10 teams are in a bidding war for him.

    If the Bucs were smart, they would have recognized his ADHD and would have brought in an expert teacher for Josh. People with that affliction process information differently. For example, if you spell a word out loud to me, it sounds like Chinese and I don’t comprehend. If you write it down for me, I understand.

    When I read books, sometimes I have read a paragraph several times to comprehend. If the Bucs didn’t give Freeman the time to let things soak in, then he really wouldn’t understand the offense.

    Also, they should have given Josh a tinted visor so the defenses couldn’t read his dark eyes from 20-30 yards away. They should have hired Jeff Carlson to clean up his mechanics. Total fail for Morris, Dominic and Schiano.

  29. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ PR Buc

    Lieutenant Tim thinks it was his coaches’ fault…..but you are rigth….he’s history….the only thing that is important with Freeman is if he has an offset clause in his contract so we might be able to recoup some of his termination pay.

  30. Couch Fan Says:


    You should know by now that the Freemanites care about nothing but Freeman. I bet when he sucks it up for his next team… the Freemanites will still be pointing fingers at Schiano… sad really.

  31. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Wish you all the best son. Hope you do well with; whomever you choose to sign. Peace and Blessing to you and your family.

    GO BUCS!!!

    “Just how long is “development” supposed to take?”


    “With a revolving door of coaches and assistants? About 8 years.” – Alex Smith

  33. Capt. Tim Says:

    Um. Where did I insult you?
    A lil overly sensitive?

    Well, ok.
    But if you really are interested in the problems here, that created so many bad offensive plays.
    Then read ” Rutgers offense” posted here on Wednesday. It details why no QB can be successful in this offense. And no, we are NOT running the giants offense.
    Also goggle” NFL exec says Shiano is a Bully”.
    It gets numerous NFL execs to discribe who Schiano really is.

    Often, an offense is horrible, and it has nothing to do with the QB or players.

  34. PRBucFan Says:

    Yea guys, but I guess in the end with those actions we will see who the actual Buc fans are and who really is just a “players fan”.

    Isn’t this just mind boggling? They get their QB. They get their wish – Freeman is GONE. But they still can’t let him go!

    These fans are as insane as the Head Coach they defend.

  36. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ Lieutenant Tim

    “Don’t really watch much football, do you?”

    To me, that’s an insult….I’ve watched every Buc game since 1976 and most of their division opponent games.
    Now I don’t claim to have the vast football acumen that you do…but I’m no novice.

    Your insults to other posters let me know thats your style.

    I’ve read the “Bully” article…here’s one for you…A QB that survived Schiano.

    Give it up with the freemanite bs. Joe reports a story, we dicuss it. Thats ALL this is! Lunatic.

  39. Couch Fan Says:


    You can’t possibly be this asinine can you?

    I’m not sure if you actually read the article but it happens to be about Freeman. So… what exactly are we suppose to comment on?

    Seems if you have a problem you should talk to Joe since he’s the one producing article after article about Freeman.

    Here’s an idea to help you out because I know how much you need all the help you can get. If you dont like the article, or hell even the comments, dont read em.

    I know I know. Crazy concept…. but otherwise you just make yourself sound as ‘insane’ as the other people you claim are insane.

  40. PRBucFan Says:

    Anyone that would wish anything but the best for this team, regardless of the moves that have been made is not a fan of this team no matter how much they try and debate otherwise.

    It really is pretty sad.

  41. MadMax..original Says:

    Good for him… end the freeman circus please….he’s NO LONGER A BUC….WHAT THE FCK….

  42. hectorvas Says:


    The only problem, is that was a college kids take. Why cant we get some word from one of his PRO players?

    Oh thats right, we already heard from Michael Bennet. And from’s locker room sources. And the story’s the same. The Pasta Nazi can’t get through to grown a__ adult men who make 5x as much as him.

  43. MadMax..original Says:

    Thats my point weirdo. Joe mentions Freeman, we discuss it. Some people wish him the best, and you throw a fit and call us Freemanites. Nooooooo. We’re just man enough to wish a player well and move on. If only you could try being the bigger man for once… Go ahead, try it.

  45. PRBucFan Says:

    TBBF and Couch

    The more attention you give them the more life they gain.

    They aren’t even worth the energy.

    Without anyone to fuel the fire, it will die.

  46. NY Buc Says:

    interesting side note that has absolutely nothing to do with this topic, the Patriots were down 7 pts and it sure looked like a couple Patriots players rushed the Bengals victory formation. Odd, I didn’t see Marvin Lewis have a hissy or media types calling Bill Belichick bush league?

    If only it were that easy. Next, he gets signed. Then he plays well, (there’s no way he plays worse than he did under this year Rutgers offense). Then Couch and Friends start punching babies, jack it Glennon photos -together, and they yell at their mom’s upstairs to make them more beefaroni while they eat away their hate.

  49. Couch Fan Says:

    oh Hectorvas

    IF you actually read my posts and stopped spewing stupidity you would see that I started with nothing more than my opinion…

    You would also see how the Freemanites called me out first.

    But no, no. Let’s not let little things like facts get in the way. Continue proving to us just how moronic you can be…

    Now go head and switch user names so you can pretend to be someone else to insult us. LMAO

    @ PR

    I find it funny to poke at them. They are like caged animals ready to snap at anything. Very amusing. But your right I’ll stop teasing them now.

  50. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    Getting on an article about Freeman and using it to call Schiano a “Pasta Nazi” and blaming “crappy” Buc coaches for Josh’s lack of development is proof enough that these are player fans.

    I’m not here to defend Schiano or Freeman but the owners chose Schiano and that’s what we have to accept until they decide to change.
    ,is history, gone, departed, terminated, through, finished, vanished, elsewhere, SYONARA, ADIOS, AU-REVOIR, Auf Wiedersehen, BYE BYE….Schiano would say CAIO!!!

  51. PRBucFan Says:

    That was pretty good Couch ahahahaha

  52. hectorvas Says:

    You guys will never get it. Thats why you need each other to fluff each other when one of you is called out. Go ahead weirdos. The site is yours! Start fluffin!

  53. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ PR Fan

    Good advice and I would expect nothing less from (PR)…but I’m just helping Joe out…he’s trying to scratch every ounce out of the Freeman controversy before it dies.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if Joe doesn’t post updates from Freeman’s new team.

  54. Couch Fan Says:


    Please dont say that. Lol, I’ve been hoping that once Freeman signs with another team that we never have to read about him on this site again.

  55. PRBucFan Says:


    I hear ya bro lol

  56. Tye Says:

    He is not our problem anymore…. Hopefully “his fans” will go and frustrate whatever fan base he goes to…. He is no longer a Buc and rightly so…. Let’s move on to those who still don the Bucs uniform!

  57. DomsAdvisor Says:

    Looks like the paid trolls have disappeared.

  58. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ Couch Fan

    Joe Radiers Fan

  59. blackmagic00 Says:

    You guys do realize that Joe posts stuff about almost every player after they leave right? Joe has done this since day one back in 2008. This goes for coaches as well as players. Being the soap opera this has been and Freeman being a qb, I would expect that we will hear about this well into next year. Just sayin’.

  60. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    Joe Vikings Fan etc. etc. etc.

  61. Couch Fan Says:

    Lol I hope not, I would be pretty upset if I had to go back to that other Bucs site that isn’t very good.

  62. MR.T Says:

    Looks like the bucs were a bit premature in dumping Free for nothing. Even though it would have been a distraction they could have waited until the end of the month and quite possible gotten a trade of some kind given the amount of interest that being shown in him now. Too bad.

  63. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    “Whichever team signs Freeman, the Bucs are likely on the hook for his full $6.4 million in remaining salary, assuming he files for termination pay after the season. Freeman’s new salary won’t offset that payment.”

    This from a report elsewhere….I guess if you follow the money Josh benefited from the release and perhaps the divulgence of his medical records.

    I think we could have/should have kept him until the trade deadline but I think the results would be the same barring an injury. Teams just flat didn’t want to give us anything for him.

  64. BucfaninMi Says:

    @ Nybuc, i saw that and thought the same thing.

  65. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    If Freeman chooses the Raiders he’s not nearly as smart as I thought he was. His career would be pretty much ruined there.

  66. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    MR.T Says
    “Looks like the bucs were a bit premature in dumping Free for nothing. Even though it would have been a distraction they could have waited until the end of the month and quite possible gotten a trade of some kind given the amount of interest that being shown in him now. Too bad.”

    The only time a trade happens is when teams know you won’t be releasing the player in a short while, or if there is very high demand.

  67. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ Bonzai

    Freeman would be going back to one of those “crappy” coaches that failed to develop him here (this according to Lieutenant Tim)

  68. crazy Says:

    Boy, these teams must really think the coaching and players really stink here to want to hire SI’s Michael Jackson impersonator who sleeps with snakes. Good Luck.

  69. SeanyMac in SC Says:

    Freeman is gone from the roster. What Freeman does no longer effects the Bucs. Are we so desperate for validation for cutting JF5 that we have to follow his every move now and hope he blows up where ever he lands.

    Joe, can we please move on to topics that actually impact what the Bucs are doing.

  70. lightningbuc Says:

    JFro’s dealer, errrr doctor, is not happy with news he is leaving Tampa.

  71. oldfart44 Says:

    Luckily, being retired, I have the luxury of re-watching the previous Bucs’ games. Trust me, Josh is not as bad as some of you think. Definitely, he makes a couple of really bad throws like the interception in the Jets games, but some of the routes that he is trying to complete would not have gained anything. All we have to do is watch how successful ex Bucs have played. Would it not be something, if, with new management, we resigned Talib who is playing lights out. In addition, we have not seen the end of this mess yet with the NFLPA.

  72. Couch Fan Says:

    Agreed. Would love some new info about our new starting QB that may turn out to be much better than Freeman.

  73. Chris Says:

    Who cares about josh freeman. No longer a Buc. Move on Joe. Btw Oakland is a place you don’t want to go to to revive your career.

  74. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ SeanyMac in SC

    Where in SC.

    FYI Joe won’t move on from Freeman because the subject drives traffic for Joe’s advertisers & that’s how Joe eats & drinks.
    Let’s NOT misrepresent Joe, please. Joe writes about what Joe finds interesting as it relates to the Bucs. That could be Freeman. That could be Father Dungy. That could be Aqib Talib in New England, or an update on Tanard Jackson, or happenings and comments related to glory years Bucs like Ronde Barber, Steve White, John Lynch, etc. Again, Joe doesn’t make editorial decisions based on what you perceive “drives traffic.” –Joe

    You are right: Freeman is history, gone, departed, terminated, through, finished, vanished, elsewhere, SYONARA, ADIOS, AU-REVOIR, Auf Wiedersehen, BYE BYE….Schiano would say CAIO!!!

  75. NY Buc Says:


    Glad someone else saw that too. With the lack of any mention of it anywhere on the net I was starting to think I was imagining things. Apologies to fellow JBF readers for further taking this thread off topic, but it’s just strange how the Bucs do this and are branded dirty, bush league, etc. by alot of people while the Patriots get a free pass like it never happened. Maybe Belichick has mastered the Jedi mind trick over the NFL media and viewers?

  76. Patrick Says:

    Seeing Freeman succeed/fail will tell us exactly whose fault it was.

  77. Couch Fan Says:

    @NY Buc

    No need to apologize. We’ve been talking about this same thing for weeks now anyways. It’s time for a change of topic.

  78. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    @ Patrick

    Exactly…if Freeman fails, Its his fault. If Freeman succeeds its his fault.

  79. blackmagic00 Says:

    Man Payton is beast. Will we ever have that?

  80. Jacko101 Says:

    Wishing you nothing but the best freeman, sadly people do better when they leave the bucs. Ask Talib, Blount, and Bennett

  81. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    Talib, Blount & Bennett lost today & we didn’t…..thank goodness for the bye!!!

  82. stanglassman Says:

    I think next QB and head coach are playing/coaching for the Cardinals one Louisville and the other Stanford.

  83. Buc4life Says:

    Wish you the best Free. Really wanted you to succeed in Tampa

  84. Bucs1987 Says:

    If you go through all the comments on from Raiders fans, 95% of them are pissed that the Raiders are even going to consider Freeman. Most of them are saying they want Pryor in there. Some even said they would surrender their season tickets if Freeman becomes the starter. I don’t think Raider Nation thinks very highly of Josh at all.

  85. blackmagic00 Says:

    Thank you Joe for this site. I check it more times than I can count and have since it launched. It gets me fired up and it also can let me down. A site that makes a true cocktail of emotions. Keep up the good work. Thank you. And GOOO BUCS!!!

  86. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    If the Raiders sign Josh that will confirm what we already know…he’s terrible.

  87. 911bucs Says:

    It’s so close to the never land ranch though

  88. zam Says:

    I really hope he gets a chance to start somewhere. I want to find who is right.

  89. PRBucFan Says:

    Too bad we are going to perceive things how we perceive them regardless of what you say.

    Freeman is not a Buc, move on.

  90. PRBucFan Says:

    It’s not a matter of right and wrong, he wasn’t working out here for a lot longer than Schiano has been here.

    What he does elsewhere does not change that.

  91. stanglassman Says:

    Before it was ‘nobody would want him’ now that lots of teams want him its ‘if he signs with _____ team it confirms that he sucks’. Just because last week showed you all blaming everything on Josh were wrong and that Glennons not ready to start in the NFL. Its not like we are expecting you guys to ever admit you all were wrong we know from experience that would never happen. But at least show a little class and wish the guy well.

  92. lightningbuc Says:


    I’m sorry Josh that you suck, but I wish you well.

  93. Capt. Tim Says:

    Steve young was a beast , Too!!
    Yet the coach here said he would never be an NFL QB- and tried playing him at Fullback!! Kerman benbett. Look it up if you don’t believe me( I might not!)

    How many QBs that started here , won their SuperBowls elsewhere?

    Doug Williams, Steve Young( multiple times), Trent Dilfer.
    Am I forgetting anyone?

    I know Testeverde made the playoffs several times with the Jets.
    Josh is the most physically talented of the bunch.

    I am really angry about this. It seems like we hire a lousy coach, who last just long enough to run off a really good prospect at QB!
    I was screaming about Bennett mishandling Steve Young.
    No one remembers Bennett. No one will remember Schiano

    But if he gets some proffesional coaching, by an intelligent Coach- we may be hearing about Freeman for 12 years.

    If he wasn’t playing well- then Bench him a couple games. If it’s him, it’ll show.
    If it wasn’t him, if it’s the scheme- then every fan would have seen that!! That’s what you do with young QBs that are struggling.

    Schiano took no steps to try and reach Freeman. Because the lil idiot knows that his scheme is the problem.

    And again- lousy Coach, with idiotic decisions, sets us back to rebuilding.

    It’s hard not to be angry!

  94. Capt. Tim Says:

    Leeman Bennett!! Damn phine

  95. Capt. Tim Says:

    No. I went to The Raider nation web page. 95% seemed excited about Freeman coming there.
    About 5% are clueless idiots, who are bitching
    Their equivalent of you and Couch.

    There’s always a couple of Zombies on every site!
    At least “Winning Glennon” didn’t loose today

    Freeman beat the Packers in his first start.
    “Winning Glennon” , with a team that is ten times better, lost to one of the worst defenses in the league- that was a slew of injuries.

    Don’t see how you two still think he’s getting us to the Playoffs!!! Lmao

  96. stanglassman Says:

    I share your frustration Tim. With decent coaching this team would be 4-1 or 3-2 at worst. It’s bad enough and you have to read all these myopic yahoos blame everything on a guy that we know from watching the Bucs for 37 years that he is the most talented guy we have had as a franchise QB.

  97. Couch Fan Says:

    Yes he is the most talented WB we have ever had. Nobody disputes that.

    But he also sucked despite all that talent. 24-38 record and inept play to prove it. He doesn’t disserve all the blame and nobody has put all the blame on him. But he does disserve most of the blame for his own inept play….

    Common sense is amazing.

  98. Couch Fan Says:

    Most talented QB we have ever had.*

  99. bucrightoff Says:

    Ummm…we did have Steve Young. Infinitely more talented and accomplished than Josh Freeman. Freeman has very good potential but not Steve Young potential. Steve Young was lethally accurate while Freeman is, to say the least, not particularly.

  100. GenocideD Says:

    Freeman to the Vikings.

  101. PRBucFan Says:

    Lol Sad thing is people are going to act like it matters what he does elsewhere.

    Do his W’s in another jersey somehow mean his L’s here are erased?

    Negative ghost rider

  102. white Tiger Says:

    Sports Center just ammounced it – and just as Jay Glazer reported this morning – boom Josh Freeman signs a one year deal with the Vikings…

    …smart, exactly as you would expect – the guy set himself up perfectly to showcase his talent in the best possible position.

    Buffalo admitted they had intensified their pursuit of Freeman as were the Rayduhs.

    Here we sit with a 3rd round QB who’s probably a really nice kid – but one who is also a rookie and has no viable check-down TE and a coach who doesn’t know how to use the short-ball…and likes to devour any player who disagrees with him.

  103. white Tiger Says:

    The Vikes fans have been begging for Freeman – matching him with ALL DAY Peterson – and a fabulous offensive line.

    wow – if you want to bank on performance – we’re about to see what that looks like.

  104. blackmagic00 Says:

    Vikings. yay. damn I’m still a buc fan. but at least we didn’t lose. yay. but damn were still 0-4.

  105. white Tiger Says:

    Yeah – I can be happy Free landed in a good place.

    I will watch the predictable demise of my team and the consequences we will pay for driving out a 1st/2nd round QB – for a 3rd/4th round QB on NOBODIES list – and one who showed the coach sacrificed another season to get the guy HE wanted.

    ..but, I will be definitely keeping an eye on the Vikings this season.

  106. GenocideD Says:

    If he goes up to Minnesota and blows it outta the box heads are gonna roll in TB.

  107. PRBucFan Says:

    No Ms.Cleo, you aren’t a Buc, your are a Freeman fan.

    No Buc fan would get pleasure out of their team suffering.

    Go buy a Vikings jersey and root for your boi Freeman.

    And what did you expect that he wouldn’t get picked up?

    The most God-awful players get signed every year, it doesn’t mean anything lol.

  108. white Tiger Says:

    Just know when to watch good football – versus crap football when a coach is desperately over his head and seeks to buy another year by blaming the woes of his offense on a player.

    Lets see if Glennon really does give you the best chance to “win now” – because, that is exactly what the owners are paying guys like VJax for…and why tools that don’t go to games keep helping fools make the case to “give the coach one more year”…

    You have the same bet, why not just take it?

    Don’t just do something, stand there.

    Like a tool.

    Jump froggy, jump.

  109. MadMax..original Says:

    I’ll take Glennon over Freeman every dmn!!

  110. MadMax..original Says:

    “every dmn day”

  111. PRBucFan Says:

    Listen Cleo, I didn’t care who was behind Free, it was time for him to go REGARDLESS of the person behind him’s last name.

    Get it?

    He was that bad!

    Now how bout you get to moving, what will Free Free do without you?

    After all, you are his ball boy.

  112. Fritz50 Says:

    “The most God-awful players get signed every year, it doesn’t mean anything lol.”

    And yet, a lot of you anti-Freemanites were citing the concept that Freeeman was horrible because no other teams wanted him…changing your tune, much?
