It is rumored that the Tampa coach schano
Wants to go in his own direction and get his style
Of QB. He was hired when Freeman was already
The QB. I've watched  him play and he is very good.
From what I've seen he is a good leader with
Good arm strength. He could easily be are franchise QB for the next 10 years. I would gladly
Trade our 1st round pick for him. Sign him to a long term contract and let's get on to the business
Of winning some football games and make
The playoffs.

He is 6 foot 6 inches tall and he is 25 years old
And he has good arm and is a good deep thrower. I've seen him pull a few games out in the
4th quarter with his team down. He really passes
The eye test and I think he is a good leader.

Anyone care to comment or discuss

he has played some good football...If the Bucs front office believes he is a Franchise QB. most likely he will stay and the coach will go.

I'd be shocked if they were willing to deal him. Who replaces him in Tampa? The QB class this year is awfully weak

If Tampa is dumb enough to deal a 25 year old stud qb that is maybe a year or two away from his prime then we should be on the phone with their front office every day. I can't imagine they would want to get rid of this kid but if they are serious we should be all over it. Would anyone really rather have any qb in this draft class over Freeman??

Schiano is a stubborn guy, and I'm near certain there's more behind the scenes with freeman..... I wouldn't be shocked.

That would be god sent.  He's not an elite QB right now, but certainly better than anyone available and has a huge upside.  I'd love to grab him.

"We have a trade to announce, the Buffalo Bills trade the #8 overall pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Buffalo will receive Josh Freeman. With the #8 overall pick Tampa Bay selects some crap QB that will be out of the league in 4 years."
That would be a no brainer trade for the Bills that is almost certainly not going to happen.

I would be all for it.  My only question, why is Josh Freeman so inconsistent?  He started off slow, got red hot, then slowed back down.  I picked him up in one of my fantasy leagues this year, but admit I didn't watch any Tamba Bay games this year, mainly just saw highlights.  Any responses are greatly appreciated.

He didn't have much time in the pocket and he was playing from behind a lot. There were also points where they relied on Curtis Doug (Mondays, lol) Martin a lot.

Doubt that's what's going on in TB. However, if he were available - The Bills should snatch him up in a heartbeat.
What do the following QBs have in common - other than they were drafted by and starters in TB and then traded to another team?

Doug Williams
Trent Dilfer
Steve Young

Need a hint anyone?

Curtis, Doug...same thing. :lol:
Plus, if he were made available there would be a lot of other teams interested.

I'm guessing we have the Cornelius Bennett trade to thank for this mentality.  The "magic bullett" is on someone else's roster and all we have to do is trade for him (usually a 3-5th rounder) and the Bills will be all set.

I am sure the Bucs know this is a crappy year to go shopping for a QB and I doubt they'd get rid of him now.

I would give a 1st and my left ball for Freeman.  He's a stud and only fell apart after their 2 guards got hurt.  They'd be stupid to trade him but we'd be even stupider to not kick the tires.  I love that the Jets passed on him for Sanchez.
