Sure there is "a chance"...a very very very very very very low chance....but "a chance" all the same.


Hell, brees might not be as accurate as manziel.

Well... if he is going to take the next step, he better get going on it.  Big, big, season coming up for him.  If he doesn't show growth next season, it might be time to start thinking about plan B.

\\\\\\\"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.\\\\\\\"

Of course he can. He's gonna play isn't he? If he plays like he's capable of and does it consistently, I have no problem with getting that from him as our QB. His best play is pretty damn good. I dont see why he cant work to be that more consistently. Build the defense up and you got yourself a pretty damn good team.

That is the big thing right there.  I am his biggest fan, but man, its time to show some consistency.  You see guys like Russell Wilson, Luck, and RG III come in to the league, and they are ballin right out of the gate.

He's got next season to show us. If not, well, then it's back to the drawing board.

He has the skills to be elite, needs the consistency.

I hear you with Luck, Wilson and RGIII but you have to be able to understand that RGIII and Wilson are running offenses that are college type offenses and that aren't "figured" out by the NFL yet. Same with Kapernick. I"ll jump on the Wilson and RGIII band wagon at the end of next year when they have a similar season.

Luck is a player, no doubt about it. He is in a traditional offense and putting up big numbers, also big interceptions. Everyone's path is different. I do believe we'll see a Cam Newton effect with RGIII and to a lesser extent Wilson.

I agree BucNY. and not only that but hes playing on a team that is simply not as good as those teams. Wilson and Kap played on a team with excellent defense. Freeman played on a team that has **CENSORED**ty defense. What would happen if we switched defenses with SF or SEA?? My guess is we would be a better team than them. Our defense right now really sucks. I know Freeman has to improve his game and be more consistent and all but the defense really needs to improve as well or they are going nowhere as a team. I dont care who you got at QB. You could have Brady as our QB and we would probably make playoffs but we wouldnt be that much better overall. Bradys teams have lost because their defenses havent been good enough. Its a team game, if everybody is playing well, the team wins. Simple as that.

What skills? 

Accuracy?  Nope.
Touch?  Nope.
Intelligent field general?  Nope.
Fiery leader?  Nope.
Calm under pressure?  Nope.
Smart decision maker?  Nope.

Josh makes a living chucking deep jumpers.  Other than that he's got nothing to scare anyone with.

Freeman seems like the kind of guy who could end up a backup for a few years, and come out randomly with an elite season, then go back to sucking the rest of his career.
