More thoughts...

How many QB's can legitimately pick up a system in 1 offseason +4 reg season games and perform as it's second nature?   (Not thinking, just executing?)

Very few - if any....  especially the young ones.

Free gets some time, but at the end of this season - time ain't going to be Free.   Bazinga!

Andrew Luck and RGIII seem to be doing fine as actual rookies, and Cam Newton and Andy Dalton picked their systems up pretty quick last year as rookies.

This stuff is simply excuses for Freeman at this point.  It's on him to be better, not the HC or OC.

Tannehill is showing promise as well.

Even Ponder is figuring it out in his 2nd season.

Nope...it's Raheem's fault.

Regardless of personal perspectives - he's going to get the rest of the season to figure it out.   

Everything else is just an opinion.

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

Hope Freeman gets it together because his Jekyll & Hyde act is getting old. I don't even care what he did 2010 anymore. It's two years later he's got this season to win over the fanbase.
