Freeman says relationship with Schiano is great
 
by Gil Arcia

May 17, 2013

  Many believe that there is some kind of a discord between Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman and head coach Greg Schiano. Back in early March, Freeman’s agent Erik Burkhardt told TheBayCave.com that the Bucs are huge believers in his client and shot down the speculation of there being a disconnect between the team and Freeman.

Today, as a guest on “The Sports Page” with Rick Stroud and Tom Jones on 620WDAE/95.3FM, Freeman may have also shot down any rumors of a rift between he and the coach.


I spent quite a bit of time in coach Schiano’s office, hung with him around the facility, just getting to know him better talking about aspirations, what we’re trying to do with this team and the direction. I feel that my relationship with coach Schiano is probably best out of any coach. I’ve gotten to know him extremely well.


When reports first surfaced about the possible disconnect, it was only a matter of time that the national media would pick up on it and turn it into a much talked about debate. Then, when the Buccaneers selected Mike Glennon in round three of the draft, it immediately turned into a quarterback controversy.

Schiano has said some words that have raised eyebrows but nothing that directly pins him to disliking his starting quarterback. Besides, if he is truly saying things behind Josh Freeman’s back, that goes against everything Schiano has tried to sell since day one: Trust, belief, and accountability.

But...but...conspiracies are so much more fun.

The Anti-Java:
Its not a personal thing.   Freeman just needs to produce or he is going to lose his job.  Everyone knows that.

Schiano and Freeman don't need to be BFF's.

Most of Cutler's coaches couldn't stand the guy, but he produces.  So he keeps getting paid.

Although I would take Cutler over Freeman in a heartbeat...I wouldn't necessarily say that he has produced all that much.

BucsBay:
I think Schiano deserves just as much blame for Freeman's poor games last year. "Run the ball and throw down field." Sounds great, but when teams are able to shut down your run and have CBs who can run with Jackson and Williams downfield what are the options? That is exactly what happened in Dallas, against Philly, and in New Orleans. Even Atlanta did a decent job of that, especially in the first game. This team needs at least somewhat of an intermediate passing game to take the next step offensively. Now Freeman needs to do a much better job on those throws, but at this point we have no players that we know for certain can work the middle outside of Jackson who we also expect to be the downfield threat. To me that is the biggest question mark for this team going into 2013, even more than D-Line, and if the team fails because of it Freeman is going to get all the blame even if he ends up without any legitimate weapons in the short to intermediate passing game or a scheme that accounts for it.

blind melon:
Mostly irrelevant based on media speculation.   

Freeman has no excuses this season.   He is in the perfect situation and will succeed.

Cutler over Freeman?   Not a fan of Cutler.

Cutler is such a **CENSORED**.  for his current level of productivity, i wouldnt take him.

Bucman:
Jay Cutler is better than Freeman, but I still wouldn't take him. Cutler is a punk.
