08:02 AM ET 04.10 | Is Josh Freeman facing an uphill climb in Tampa Bay? The Bucs, as an organization, aren't all that concerned about the record-breaking Freeman and the quarterback position. In fact, people close to Freeman have confirmed that Just about everyone at One Buc Place seems onboard with Freeman except for one person: Schiano. Whether that's because the head coach didn't draft Freeman or because he feels he hasn't seen enough, everything you've read and heard about the Bucs looking into quarterbacks in free agency and the draft has been driven almost exclusively by Schiano ... Even if the Bucs invest a middle-round draft choice in a quarterback, the odds of that player challenging Freeman are slim to none.

He is not alone.

They're just waiting. For what? For the Jets to release their backup quarterback.

When you finish under .500, you've got to do something.

GM Dominik who drafted him has effusive praise of Freeman. Methinks he is in the same business of scapegoating.

With the signing of Carson Palmer in AZ, Drew Stanton is probably available. And there's always the 3 comeback kids, Russell, Young & White.

True... But in fairness Freeman isn't his guy, and his skills have really digressed over the past couple of years.

Don't care for Schiano and they are in the Saints division, so can't wish him any luck in obtaining a winning QB.
What a deal the Panthers pulled off with Cam Newton! All those picks and a good wide receiver to boot.
Saints need to make a deal like that with Drew Brees as he is paid too much money. Saints need cap room to get some defensive players.

Panthers trade was a April fools joke....

Anyone who IS sold on Freeman hasn't been paying attention.

Yeah, he is, but give him credit for being a real fan, through thick and through thin, no bandwagon stuff.
