Bucs Q&A: Is Schiano sabotaging Freeman?

Published:   |   Updated: September 18, 2013 at 02:23 PM

Q: Is coach Greg Schiano try to sabotage Josh Freeman so he can start Mike Glennon? Why I ask is because I note that the Bucs are not playing to Josh Freeman’s strength plus he can’t change any plays or blocking scheme at the line.

A: My opinion and belief is absolutely not. Why would he do that? If Schiano thinks Glennon is the better option then he would name him the starter. He hasn’t because there is no question Freeman gives the Bucs the best chance to win. As for playing to Freeman’s strengths, I also believe the Bucs are doing that. Freeman is a big-armed QB and the Bucs have a lot of deep passing plays in their attack. And Freeman does have the freedom to change plays at the line. He does it often. Every quarterback does.
