I believe the difference between our offense and most others in the league is that our receivers have to make site reads MID-PLAY, and they have to see the same things that Freeman does and adjust accordingly.  As far as I know, the giants are the only other team that require that as part of their primary offense.

Looks to me like he was never worthy of a first round grade. Turns out he was awful at rushing, he only posted some positive rushing stats his last year.

There are times where there are errant passes that are pretty clearly a result of miscommunication rather than Freeman's inconsistent accuracy.  But even when that happens, I don't think you can take it as a given that the communications error was the receiver's fault.

Come on, guys. Everything is Freeman's fault....this is Tampa Bay....thats just how things work. Nice "excuses", though. To think that the situation could be a little more complicated than "its the QB's fault"...is laughable.

Exactly.  Your typical fan who knows nothing about football always looks to the QB position to assign blame.  Facts are facts this team had bigger issues last year than the QB.  Injuries at O-Line and holes in the secondary being two that were pretty apparent to this football eye.

thats makes more sense, but apparently he really never rushed at all till his last year there. Where he racked up 14 rushing TDs, The 14 rushing TDs combined with the 20 passing TDs looks to me like the reason he must have gotten hype. He was a one year wonder as far as total TDs and ints go and we drafted him because of it despite all the other issues, and now he doesnt rush at all anyway... If you were to look at him in college there's no way you would say Josh Freeman fom Kansas is a first round prospect or even a good prosepct when you take away the rushing stats..

If the Freeman criticism on this message board is valid and beyond reproach then why do so many Free-bashers run to pro-Freeman threads to squelch and dismiss the conversation as "excuses."  Why would any Free-basher care?

A better question is if everyone who posts here watches Freeman play, then how do pro-Freeman threads exist in the first place. Mind boggling...

Pretty simple to answer. They also watch other QBs, so they know Freeman is good enough to be a starter in the NFL. There are worse guys out there that should not be allowed to start here instead of him. Without question there is reason to believe he could improve, even most of the Freeman haters are willing to give him another year... to prove himself.

Up to you now to tell me if the Freeman excuse train started first or the Freeman bashing, which would give us another explaination why some feel the need to defend him from unreasonable neagative judgement, as they seem to think he is better than the Freeman bashers try to make him look like.

Anything less than 16-0 and Freeman is gone.

16-0 and the number 1 rated passing attack.
