The final three performances of the regular season were enough to convince Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano to pull out the yellow card on his auspicious quarterback. Regardless of his decent statistics (27 touchdowns, 17 interceptions), Josh Freeman mishandled more than his team’s playoff chances down the stretch, tossing 9 ducks against the Saints, Rams, and Falcons.“What I can say is, a 4,000-yard passer, a touchdown record – there’s a lot of things you say, “Wow.’ Are there things that frustrate you? Yeah. There’s things that frustrate him, too. And I’m not ducking the question, because quite frankly, I really like Josh Freeman. But I want to make sure I don’t get ahead of my skis at all here and really evaluate every single thing to what’s best for this organization. Do I think Josh Freeman is going to win Super Bowls in this league? I do. So, I hope that happens here. But again, at the end of the day, I have to evaluate everything before I can say that’s what we’re doing.Spectating
