(AUDIO) Tony Dungy Disagrees with the Move to Bench Josh Freeman

Tony Dungy 9-25

Tony Dungy joined Booger and Rich to talk about benching Josh Freeman and starting Mike Glennon.

Dungy said he wonders what Schiano saw between Tuesday when Freeman was still the starter to Wednesday when Glennon was announced as the starter. Dungy says he doesn’t think it’s the right move starting a rookie.

Dungy started rookie Shaun King while in Tampa and said it’s easier when you make that decision before the season.

Dungy said the team is two field goals from being 2-1 and the team has been in games, but this move is one to try and spark the offense. The organization must have looked at it and thought that it was the right move at the right time.

Dungy said it doesn’t have to do with whether or not a coach drafts a guy, but coaches make gut decisions and Schiano clearly believes in Mike Glennon as his starter.

Dungy remembered when Booger came in and backed up Brad Culpepper and Dungy said there was a time when Booger was ready to play and it wasn’t fair to keep Culpepper on the bench, so they traded. This situation is different to Dungy. He doesn’t think it would be in the best interest of the Bucs to trade him right now. Dungy did say that Schiano now can’t go back to Freeman unless Glennon gets injured.

Freeman does have a future in the NFL according to Dungy.
