Skip Bayless talking out of his butt again...no surprise.
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/97...n-mike-glennonThe Tampa Bay Buccaneers have decided to bench quarterback Josh Freeman for rookie Mike Glennon, according to league sources.
The Bucs are making the change now because they feel it is beneficial for Glennon with the bye week coming after Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, team sources told ESPN. He can start this week, then have two weeks for the coaches to review his performance and make corrections before the Bucs play the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 13.
Terrible team is terrible.
http://nfl.si.com/2013/09/27/josh-fr...?sct=nfl_t2_a3Josh Freeman lost his starting job in Tampa Bay earlier this week. Now, he might not even have a spot on the active roster.
The Buccaneers may scratch Freeman from the lineup for Sundayís game with Arizona, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reported. If thatís the decision, Dan Orlovsky would back up rookie starter Mike Glennon.
According to both Stroud and Bucs insider Jenna Laine, the catalyst behind Freemanís latest potential demotion may have been an interview Freeman conducted with ESPN on Thursday, which Laine reported ďwasnít authorized by the BucsĒ.
One of the first quarterbacks Tampa Bay focused on was then-Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer. He was capable enough to get Tampa Bay to the playoffs, but expendable enough that Oakland was willing to part ways with him.
Tampa planned it out. It had extensive talks to try to get a trade done. A deal was within its grasp, so much so that the Buccaneers believed Palmer would be theirs.
And just when the Buccaneers thought they would land him, the Cardinals stepped in and made an offer the Raiders could not refuse. Arizona, not Tampa, got the trade done.
In the end, one of Palmer's agents, Dave Dunn, helped steer his client to Arizona instead of Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers felt jilted, betrayed. It did not play particularly well in their training facility. And the Buccaneers had little choice but to find their new emergency backup quarterback, North Carolina State's Mike Glennon, in the third round of the draft.
This is ridiculous. A starting quarterback was benched, so of course the media was asking his opinion on the matter, this happens all the time in the NFL. But apparently that cant happen in Tampa. And way to build trust Schiano, try and trade for veteran starting quarterback. Just cut him already.
Greg Schiano is a joke.
Can we lock this thread, please?
But at the same time, a coaches job is to put their quarterback into the best position to succeed, not go to war against them. Schiano arrived and decided he was going to make Freeman's life difficult. Why did he decide to do this? 'Cause. Not to mention all the rumors of him attempting to undermine Dominik and the level of mistrust his players seem to have for him.
I dont see very much media bias(which has quickly become the number 1 subject on this forum). But then again, i consider trying to trade for another quarterback behind your supposed franchise QB's back to be a bigger deal then missing a team photo.
