    If you counted tons of over throws where he thought a WR was going to zag and they zigged, then you weren't watching the same game most of us did.

    Most of the overthrows I saw were exactly that. Over throws. As in over their heads. If he thought the receiver was going to be where the ball was thrown, than Freeman must have thought the receivers were 8 to 10 feet tall.

    He might be trying to kick himself, but my guess is he's missing himself completely.

    There were throws where the timing between him and his target was clearly off. Other times he tried to force balls into players who weren't open. Then there were others that were simply inaccurate throws.

    I think he just needs time. He has a lot of ability, once he's familiar with the offense, protection and receivers he will be better. He can't be worse.

    Two positives I saw were Freeman moved around in the pocket well in response to pressure, only took one sack, and all of his overthrows should have balanced out both McNabb and Ponder's underthrows. Should be able to start with a clean slate.

    Ponder was drafted 12th over all and given his job without a sniff of competition, and performed inconsistently from poor to average at best.
    It must have been a shocking kick in the ass to realize he was no longer pampered with preferential treatment, but instead benched with his career in jeopardy.
    Talk about a wake up call.
    I will be very interested to see how he responds.

    Well put. At least there will be some measure of drama.
