07:32 PM ET 02.17 | As Queen and David Bowie told us so long ago, pressure pushes down on you and me, and no man would ask for such a situation. Being under pressure is a cause of frustration and a loss of productivity in any professional situation. The artist who has to create the perfect work on a tight deadline, the middle manager who has to improve sales numbers by the end of the quarter, or the quarterback who has large, athletic men chasing him with the intent of causing him bodily harm. Since this is not a self-help website, and I only minored in psychology in college, we'll ignore the ramifications of the first two scenarios, and focus on the third. How much does pressure affect an NFL quarterback, and how can the Buccaneers learn from knowing more about how pressure impacts their signal caller?

It's the trick of being able to perform when uncomfortable. Brady, Manning, Luck and several more throw well from very small pockets often. Josh Freeman feels the pocket collapsing and panics. If he can get comfortable throwing from that really small pocket he'll be good, if he can't he won't.

The Game has not slowed down yet for Freeman, once he's comfortable in the pocket disbite the rush he will start to perform very well, if that doesn't happen, trade him to the Jets!

For once, the interns got it right. He's asking a simple question. Why the columnist needed 100+ words of crap to do so, is not clear.

Maybe they will put him out od his misery and Sign Matt Moore!

It's one heluva rambling dissertation on a QB's ability to handle pass rush pressure.
