Freeman isn't a riddle he's a bicycle.....

Take the training wheels off and he'll be just fine.

Freeman has surely had some bad games. Eli Manning had a lot of games that were worse than Freeman's. I can remember joking that he and Rex Grossman were in a battle to see who could turn the ball over more in one season back in 2006-2007. Suddenly it all clicked. I know for a fact that I have watched at least three games where Eli was responsible for 6 turnovers. That is absolutely unacceptable, yet now he has two Super Bowl rings.


He too would show flashes of ability but then just be totally boneheaded and throw games away. Freeman has been very good in the past. In 2009 and 2010 he was completely fearless in the way he played. He pulled the trigger with all the hesitation of Rambo...... Lets go back briefly; 1) 2009 vs the Packers in the throwback game. Freeman hits Stroughter on a pump and go corner route from within the redzone (ironically it was in the exact place that Santonio Holmes made an almost identicle catch to beat the Cardinals in the Super Bowl) 2) 2010 with the clock almost at zeros the Buccs defense takes the ball away from the Bengals, Freeman throws about a 30 yard laser low and away to Spurlock and sets up the game winning FG. 3) 2010 vs the Panthers Freeman breaks two tackles in the backfield while fading to his right....then throws a rocket to Winslow just before he gets to the sideline for about a 35 yard gain. These are just a couple small examples.

NFL scouts have wet dreams about QBs who can make those kind of throws in those kind of situations. So if you want the Buccs to go get some rookie that might not even be able to hit a 25 yard out route then you go ahead and hope for that. My hope is that the Glazers are smart enough to hire the right offensive people until they find somebody who can quit holding him back. I feel like this coaching staff, while I love what they've done with the defense, has probably filled his head full of "don't turn it over" and "running and defense, you don't have to win it, just don't loose it" type of thinking. Every time he's ever been unleashed (like those 4th qtr comebacks he's known for) he has played really well and moved the team right down the field. Let him play free. Let him use his instincts. That's all they have to do.
