  Football Schedule Flickr Page Will Josh Freeman have a break-out season as he did in 2010, leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 10-6 record and the playoffs, or will his skills at quarterback continue to be a roller coaster ride in his last year of his contract? Freeman led the Buccaneers to a 7-9 record last season, and the team narrowly missed the playoffs.  Although the team did not make the playoffs, Freeman’s stats were impressive, throwing 27 passing touchdowns for 4,065 yards.  Many of the games that the Bucs lost cannot be contributed to the play of the offense, but to the breakdown of the Buc’s secondary.  One new addition to the Buccaneers roster, cornerback Darrelle Revis, will certainly strengthen the Bucs secondary core. Now that Freeman has adjusted to second year head coach Greg Schiano’s  system, I think that he will solidify his position as Tampa Bay’s leading quarterback, and will continue to carve his way into Buccaneers history. Freeman, with his size and strength, has the potential to become a great NFL quarterback.  The addition of key players on defense, along with some explosive players on offense, should make for an exciting season for the Buccaneers. Sean Payton is back at the helm for the New Orleans Saints, and with the Buccaneers and Panthers making moves in the offseason, the NFC South will once again become the competitive division that it once was, and give the Atlanta Falcons some competition this season.
