The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made the move this morning to bench veteran QB Josh Freeman. While many Buccaneers fans bristle at this move, it was the correct move for the Buccaneers at this point in the season. Freeman has 60 career starts and 19 of those have come under the current coaching staff. In his last six games, Freeman has thrown just four touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
The current coaching staff has nothing invested in Freeman, he was drafted by Raheem Morris, the previous head coach of the Buccaneers.Freeman was billed as the franchise quarterback the Buccaneers have always been searching for coming out of the draft. Despite showing glimpses of promise, Freeman was never able to get his game to the next level on a consistent basis.
