Buccaneers | Josh Freeman happy about continuity on O
Wed, 12 Jun 2013 09:52:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman, entering his fifth season, has played for two head coaches and in three systems, with three offensive coordinators and four quarterbacks coaches. The passer is optimistic about how his offense will perform in Year 2 under offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan. "I think our comfort level is so much higher, and I speak for the entire offense," Freeman said. "It's just the communication. It's all functioning at a higher level. That comes with experience. Everybody is going to be on the same page, and we're not going to hinder ourselves."

New quarterbacks coach John McNulty places more emphasis on how many points the offense scores than things like Freeman's turnovers (17 in 2012, including 10 in a span of three games) and low completion percentage (54.8). "The payoff is more than the dink and dunk."

Freeman also stated that he doesn't feel added pressure even though he's entering the final year of his contract.

Freeman was a surprise QB2 who turned in QB1 numbers for a good stretch last season before stumbling down the stretch. Perhaps the continuity will allow him to maintain a lofty pace for a longer period. Or perhaps he'll remain inconsistent, and the pressure with drafted QB Mike Glennon waiting in the wings will get to him and the O. Freeman is an interesting QB2 in 2013, for sure.
