(AUDIO) Greg Cosell From NFL Films Talks About Josh Freeman

When it comes to breaking down tape, NOBODY does a better job than NFL Films’ Greg Cosell. This guy literally watched every throw that Josh Freeman made last year and talked about it with Justin Pawlowski and Jim Lighthall Tuesday morning.

Greg’s buddy Ron Jaworski ranked Freeman as his 21st best quarterback coming into the 2013 NFL season. Cosell supported his colleague’s evaluation and felt that Josh still had some weaknesses to overcome.

“Only Mark Sanchez (of the Jets) had a worse quarterback rating than Freeman versus the blitz in 2012,” Cosell said. “The teams that are good versus blitz are good because of precision execution, not because the quarterback ‘makes a play,’ but because the ball is out at the right time to the right receiver with accuracy.”

With the best teams in the NFL notorious for putting the most pressure on opposing quarterbacks, it is imperative for Josh Freeman to improve this part of his game if the Bucs are ever going to become playoff contenders with him at quarterback.

It’s no secret that this is a make or break year for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5th year signal caller. While many Bucs fans are excited about this year’s offense, Greg Cosell isn’t sold yet. We’ll have to wait and see, but he isn’t wrong too often.

    […] But on the flip side, I also noted Freeman’s “very inconsistent” performance, how his “footwork and mechanics break down on occasion, leading to spotty accuracy” and that Mark Sanchez was the only guy in the league who had a worse passer rating when facing pressure.” […]
