Second chance Charlie worked wonders in the Bayou!!Quote:
I would not call it hate. I would call it frustration. Freeman would be a AWESOME addition if we were guaranteed the Freeman who worked his ass off and willed his team to win; but where is THAT guy? The team is betting he will return, and if the other negative fans feel as I do, we are just tired of taking chances on other team's busts.
Someone WILL offer Ponder a contract when he leaves the Vikings, but you can bet your ass it won't be the NY Giants, the GB Packers, or the SF 49ers. Teams like that go get their leaders and mold them into who they want them to be, they don't try to re-shape something broken (I know there are exceptions, just try to understand the point).
For the record, I would LOVE to hear Freeman goes all Chris Carter on us, and becomes a huge benefit to the team. But if I have to hope hope hope, it would be for a rookie with huge upside as opposed to a second chance charlie.
