If Free has a bad year , this is what we need to do:


What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

I say hold strong for 1 more year.

Why? Because many, many good QBs and some great ones (Steve Young) took 4-5 yrs to fully develop.

Look at the following QBs and say it was a good idea to cut them after a bad 4th yr.

QB #1         Steve Young
            Comp %      TDs      INTs      Yrds/gm    Rating
yr 1        52.2           3          8            187          56.9
yr 2        53.7           8          13          163          65.5
yr 3        53.6          10         0             73          120.8
yr 4        53.5           3         3             61.8          72.2

QB #2        Eli Manning

yr 1       48.2           6          9             115.9       55.4
yr 2       52.8          24        17            235.1       75.9
yr 3       57.7          24        18            202.8       77.0
yr 4       56.1          23        20            208.5       73.9

QB #3          Terry Bradshaw

yr 1      38.1           6          24            108.5       30.4
yr 2      54.4          13         22            161          59.7
yr 3      47.7          12         12            134.8       64.1
yr 4      49.4          10         15            118.3       54.5


All 3 of the above won SBs in their 5th or 6th yr and all were in multiple SBs.


Naw I say if Freeman has a bad yr with a new HC and new OC give him one more yr because I don't want anymore Steve Young for a 2nd or SD letting Brees go for Rivers scenarios

I agree with Galt, with one exception. If Freeman goes downward from his 2011 form, and we wind up with a very high draft position, we should consider drafting a QB.

If we are in top 3, I'd agree

Draft a new QB. If the light doesn't come on this season, It will never will

if we are drafting a QB in the top 5 of the draft it would be with a Different GM right?

wouldn't be surprised if that were the case

absolutely.  Freeman is the 2009 draft and the centerpiece of the Dom era

Hope we dont have to draft a QB.  Hope Freeman has a breakout year. Heck if we can run the ball and ask him to make plays only when he has to I will be okay with that also, that's all Flaco does, but he has a great D on his side.

I think we all think that, well except for Java.  I am his biggest fan, but if he doesn't light it up this season, I thinks its time to go shopping.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Yup, I think it goes without saying that we all hope for Freeman's success.

I'm a big fan as well...but this is his show-me season.

My fears about freeman are not so black and white.  More of a gray.  What if he is just good enough that we don't see bring in a replacement as a crucial need but spend the next 5 years wallowing in mediocrcy? If he can't lead this team to contention level then what is the point?   there is only one objective for a NFL team.

If he is just mediocre, draft a QB anyway, and let them battle it out.  Then trade the loser.

Then we become the 49ers and Alex SMith... could be worse right ?  ;)
