Some players do better in new environments while others do worse. I firmly believe that had Freeman had Raheem around he wouldn't have self destructed.Simms may have prolonged his career in the NFL if he was with an NFL HC that saw the value of the shotgun. Gru took way too long to come around to the idea. In 2014, the shotgun dominates the NFL.Luke McCown was always a better caretaker of the ball, but he also wasn't taking enough shots downfield like his brother Josh. It didn't work out with these three, so time to move on. Bucs missed a chance to draft a QB in 2014. They should not repeat, and compound that mistake in 2015 IMVHO.
Freeman couldn't read defenses and never put the work in. The only reason he lasted in the NFL for 5 years was because Morris and/or Dominik were here during that time. Had Freeman been drafted by someone else, he wouldn't have made it past year 3 in the NFL.Your logic on Simms is faulty. The only reason the shot gun is a dominant now is because of all the rule changes that didn't really hit until 2008.. Assuming things really clicked for him at that turn, he wouldn't have been any good for 7 years!!!McCown wasn't anything special. It's not like the 2 years here ruined his career. He couldn't last 2 seasons in Cleveland. He couldn't win the starting job in Jacksonville!
