I truly believe that all we need to know about Freeman is in the Press Conferences. You look the consistent QBs, Brady, Both Manning, Brees,  RG3, Russell Wilson, etc...

When they get ask questions they answer quickly. That's how they process plays on the field, quickly. For years at the podium Freeman has constantly been slow to answer
and even hasn't remembered some plays in the game. Somtimes he stumbles and says ahh, ahhh, way too many times.

It's been said on these boards many times how he is too slow to react and his receivers have to be COMPLETELY open for him to complete passes (other than great catches by them).

Therefore I am not bringing up anything new but just check out this Press conference, you will see.

If I were the GM I would definetly want a QB who is quick twitch in mentality. I will admit though, Freeman is one of the most durable in the league and that's what I would miss about him but
at this point I would even trade that. We could give him the best O-Line, Coaches, or whatever but the bottom line is that we are going no where with Josh Freeman!

I said this earlier today.  Have said it a few times.

He knows he CANNOT make those throws,that is why he resorts to looking for checkdowns and his tight ends all the time.

I know that it has been said many times BUT the Press Conference analogy is the beef here.

I hope you do not include Eli to your elite QB list, just because of a few lucky SB wins. What did he do today... against ATL?
Furthermore, it's pretty easy to not get 'confused' during your press conference if it looks like this, lol

Perhaps the pressers are something, he does take his time with his answers which are generally very vanilla.

I don't get much out of listening to him talk...you listen to aaron Rodgers for a few minutes and tell me he sounds like a leader...he sounds slow and boring as all hell to me.  Put you to sleep stuff.

What I get after four years of waiting and observing, is that after watching this guy play he is simply not a good QB, for all the pounded into the dirt reasons mentioned. 

Bottom line:  He needs to go.

Can't argue that point bro.

stop with comparisons to eli, eli has two rings, if free had those then he would get a pass but he does not not even close

And the skills to make consistent throws in the NFL that he needs to be able to make. Time to go.. Sadly, what else is out there? So frustrating to think they need a QB again and NO Tebow sure as sh1t isnt the answer and you know it Java..

Call me nuts, but I absolutely do think (know) that Tebow is the answer.

Is anyone else having troubles seeing the press conferences?  I click on Schiano's video and it takes me to the pregame.  I don't even see one for Freeman.

I have to ask this.. are you totally serious in your belief that Tim Tebow is a quality NFL caliber quarterback? No trolling here.. just answer honestly. Oh, and yes NUTS!
