Oakland Raiders Josh Freeman Deal Won’t End Well?
Oakland Raiders Josh Freeman Deal won’t end well for Raiders Fans. Oakland’s revolving door of quarterbacks in recent years hasn’t worked. Freeman isn’t the answer for the Oakland Raiders. Just showing interest in another QB is just bad business for a young Terrelle Pryor.
Any Oakland Raiders Josh Freeman deal can’t fix the problems in Oakland. It would be like adding an ashtray to a motorcycle. I’m no fan of Terrelle Pryor, being from Ann Arbor and all, but the difference between him and Freeman is slight now as a starting NFL quarterback.
There are maturity concerns with Pryor but, isn’t that the case with Freeman? O yea, and the possible drug issues, that while not confirmed, like most rumors they usually don’t just come out of nowhere. If you’re a Raiders fan, ask yourself this. What does an Oakland Raiders Josh Freeman deal really get you?
Josh Freeman had his best year in 2010, throwing 25 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. In 2012 those numbers were 27 TD’s and 17 picks. Freeman is mobile enough, then again Pryor is MORE mobile. Arm strength is a wash, if you’re willing to give Freeman that much credit. Maturity favors Pryor in spite of his past. I only say that because he’s younger and has grown, however small, since his Ohio State days. Bottom line, the Oakland Raiders Josh Freeman idea is a terrible one.
According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Raiders have a “definite interest” in signing recently released Buccaneers’ quarterback Josh Freeman.
Freeman, who was cut loose by the Buccaneers earlier this week, has yet to find a new home. Once though of as the franchise quarterback of the Buccaneers, Freeman was benched in favor of rookie Mike Glennon after an 0-3 start to the season. Tampa Bay then tried to trade him, contacting every team in the NFL, but found no bidders….More at Oakland Raiders Have ‘Definite Interest’ in Josh Freeman – Golden Gate Sports
I don’t know Josh Freeman, I don’t know if he does drugs, and I don’t know anyone who knows him. What I do know is that he doesn’t have enough talent to cast aside Pryor and overlook the recent problems that led to him being cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
