It really doesn't matter a whole lot in my estimation. God willing they will lose the rest of their games....er even if God isn't willing I'm sure they will find a way to lose. Ponder sealed his tomb forever now and it's no longer debatable. Cassell most likely will be elsewhere next year and Freeman will probably never start again after this year.
If we don't draft a winner next year we are doomed for a long, long time.
I hope they play him just so I can see why they brought him in. My stance was he wasn't that good and not worth bringing in at that point in the season but obviously the guys getting paid to make those decisions know more than I do so I would appreciate seeing him come into the game and play so well that I have to eat a big plate of crow.
If Freeman isn't put in again, it will make me extremely angry...we needed Winfield, and instead we wasted the cap space on a QB we played ONE time in a game situation he had no chance at succeeding in.
I can't even figure out why they do what they do so I can properly criticize it. THAT is pathetic.
Freeman signing makes no sense, i think that there is a big issue on our team with the understanding and communication from GM to Head Coach.
Freeman must really stink it up in practice since he is the 3rd QB on this team or else something else i going on.
Clean house, coaching and gm out, need new blood to save this franchise.
Can somebody please tell me why they signed Freeman ? I mean why pay him 2 mil plus a dollar to sit ? I feel kind of sorry for him actually. It's past the point where I personally would rather watch Freeman try to pull it back together than watch Ponder suck and try to act like he doesn't.
Frazier is the captain of a sinking ship and as long as he is allowed, he is going to put in the person he feels gives them the best chance of winning. You might disagree that Ponder gives us the best chance, but obviously that's what Frazier feels. I just listened to his press announcement from yesterday and that is the rationale he continues to give.
Freeman could very well start next week though, I don't think there is any long term commitment to Ponder at this point. It's simply a one game commitment (to start that is) and Cassell remains the backup...Freeman could be active based on injuries to other players.
I realize his salary has nothing to do with it. It just seems like why did they bother ? Yea Ponder is the starter for Sunday .
