Thread: Josh Freeman picks the Vikings

He's only six months older than Ponder, and has a lot more arm talent. He's young enough to fix his footwork, provided we have the staff capable of working on that stuff.

From what i read there was a personality problem between Freeman and the Buc's coach which may have accounted for much of his attitude problems. At the same time the failure of our QB's of late may not lie with the QB's but rather the game planning and coaching. Its hard to tell if the game calling is because Ponder just sucked or whether Ponder sucked because of the game planning. Or maybe they both just suck. LOL

I think they want him to get a few weeks to learn a whole new offense before throwing him out there. If he's much better than Cassel or Ponder in practice, that might be telling for the front office as well.

As a Freshman ... he beat No. 4 Texas. As a Sophomore he beat No. 7 Texas on the road.
Was he great in college ... nope. But he beat more than 1AA teams and they certainly were not a "majority" of his wins.
He definitely had his best year in the NFL against one of the worst schedules in recent memory.
But it does not hurt. I think I might like Cassel better ... but Freeman oozes talent ... so a shot in the dark.
If it does not pay off ... does not really hurt any.

Just some fun numbers. But I knew Eli had at least 43 ... actually thought he had more.

2008 Kansas State Wildcats football team - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
They beat Texas Am when they were average. All his other wins his last year were against nobodies.

You disagreed with me because he beat Texas twice (good teams) and the likes of Baylor (when they were terrible) and Colorado.
