Couldn't agree with the article more. I doubt Schiano would get fired after an 0-5 start. However, I believe when we end up 2-15 at the end of the season the Glazers will have no choice but to fire him. Rookie QB or not. Everybody knows Freeman was going to lose his job this season regardless. His time in Tampa is over. I don't think anybody can argue against that anymore. The only way Schiano survives the season is if he can keep the defense from giving up in order to give the offense a chance to pull out some close wins (Magic number 6?). Otherwise IMO, we will have a new coach next season.
As much as people are bashing SR for making the comments about extending Freeman, I think it's worth mentioning that he was merely suggesting that the Bucs behave like any franchise should that has invested in a QB that has shown promise, regardless of the fact that he hasn't completely figured it out yet.For example, the Rams just announced plans to extend Sam Bradford. For poops and giggles:Bradford's career statistics: 980-1680 (58.3%) 10,471 Yards (6.2 Yards/Attempt)52 TD's 37 INT's77.8 QB ratingFreeman's career statistics:1144-1967 (58.2%) 13,534 Yards (6.9 Yards/Attempt)80 TD's 66 INT's78.8 QB rating
BTW, his completion percentage dipped because he stopped throwing two yard dump offs to Earnest Graham and Kregg Lumpkin. I think Graham or Kregg (can't remember which or if both) were on pace to have over 100 receptions. He has never been accurate. His numbers are skewed as a result.
FRG is the most logical poster on this board. You guys just don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Where do you think Darren Sproles and Percy Harvin catch all their passes? 30 yards down the field? No.
And those are the passes that Freeman is worst at. Short and intermediate.
