    Not buying it. Yes, whatever moron threw him in after being a Vike for 3 hours was wrong... But, he's a fragile non leader. Glad he's gone.

    I would be happy to see the Bears or Packers find out for themselves, but I'm confident our GM already knows he isn't a franchise QB.
    Nice to see a QB with the physical ability to be great, after all it's a rare gift; but only when coupled with the right combination of drive and intelligence.
    Some players get paid and their journey has reached it's zenith!
    Desire without effort is a fools pursuit. I think that is one of the most difficult qualities these teams have to evaluate in players.
    I don't favor Johnny Football for a few reasons, but when he says, " I hate to lose ", I see that as a major positive.
    The great QB's seem to have a lot between their ears and a true disdain for losing.
    I don't think Freeman is in that class.

    Our GM wouldn't know a Qb if one bit him on the nose.

    It is hard to pick out the good ones from the potentially good ones. (Anyone can do it in hindsight) It is not hard, however, to identify the ones who are poor teammates...

    Very few GMs CAN. Watch the "Tom Brady's 6" or whatever on the NFL Network...even the Patriots were not sold on him, they had red flags on him but took him anyways as a shot in the dark. QBs are always the hardest pick to make, except in rare cases such as Luck and Namath.
    Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.

    it is hard to evaluate a players heart and drive to be the best he can be ...there are more intangables at the qb position than any other .i think josh still has a shot at greatness if he wakes up !!!!sometimes a player needs great mentors and coaching surrounded by a top notch frachise and a system that fits them ...isnt chilly in cleveland haha omg

    the Vikings put him in too early out of desperation, that was a mistake. But he's obviously hurting himself more than anything.

    The Bucs cut him loose. He got 1 start and 1 start only with a team that needs a QB. He's still available as a free agent.

    Teams aren't consistently passing on a 26 year old quarterback for the fun of it.
    Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

    He got paid 3 million for nothing. I would say you got one last payday he did not disserve.
