After watching the Bills/Browns game, if the Bills don't jump on Freeman, they are stupid.

 

Last night's game was the battle of the back QBs and the Bills need one STAT!!!

 

BTW, what is with coaches leaving the Panthers and finding much better success as head coach, Brown's coach, else where? What is this team doing with your coaches that they suck when they are in Carolina but step up when they are on other teams? The Panthers need to fix that menality fast.

Fox was a good coach while here and won the lottery in getting Peyton.

 

Too early to tell on Chud. He has some tough games coming up.

He also had a hand in making The Golden Calf of Bristol appear like a normal QB. Why wasn't he able to do the same with Clausen and this team? Just curious to know.

timmy's success is tied more to mike mccoy than fox which is why he was such a sexy head coach candidate

 

fox had much more control over playcalling and personnel here than he does in denver.  it's no coincidence that no matter what coordinators we had our offense and defense always looked almost exactly the same.

 

it's clearly peyton and elway's team in denver.  renting an expensive free agent quarterback is not fox's style at all and he's just along for the ride when it comes to that offense.

also clausen was forced on fox and he was reportedly not much of a fan of matt moore either.  he absolutely did not care in 2010 and for good reason.

I see Freeman ending up with the Raiders, Jets, Bills, or Jags.

And now, a word from Greg Schiano...
 

Bucs coach Greg Schiano told season ticket holders this morning that the Bucs were the laughingstock of the NFL and that's why he was hired.

 

There's a quote just screaming for a "FIFY"...

 

Schiano said to season ticket holders this morning this "situation needed Greg Schiano."

If he really spoke in third person... :lol:

I keep hearing "franchise QB" in regards to Josh Freeman. Boy, it doesn't take much to earn that label these days...

Freeman obviously has physical gifts, but take a closer look at his actual numbers:

 

2009: 30th in NFL passing

2010:   6th in NFL passing

2011: 26th in NFL passing

2012: 19th in NFL passing

2012: 33rd in NFL passing

 

Look even more closely at his "breakout" season of 2010:  He threw for a paltry 216 ypg on a team that finished 31st in the NFL in total offense. That Tampa team was pure run first, in fact they rushed for over 2000 yards and had a darn good defense. He can be credited with not throwing many interceptions and the team was good in the red zone, but it was definitely a "game manager" type season...not the season of an elite passer.

 

Now throw in this year...you can say what you want about Schiano, but Josh Freeman completely quit on his teammates...missing multiple team meetings and sleeping through through team photos...probably all calculated. Josh Freeman is a spoiled Prima Donna and a cancer in the locker room. If Joshy doesn't get his way...look out...His actual passing numbers are poor to mediocre and he is a head case. This is not a player any GM in his right mind wants to build a team around.

I'd contend that one of the most ridiculous streaks of favorable breaks and opponent miscues that i've ever seen had an even bigger hand. Seriously, the crap that took place week after week to keep Denver in those games was jaw-dropping.
