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.
