05:46 PM ET 09.25 | News surfaced on Wednesday morning that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made the decision to bench quarterback Josh Freeman, who has shown no signs of improvement since becoming the team's starting signal-caller, in favor of rookie Mike Glennon. Now that Tampa Bay is ready to see what they have in the first-year pro, they can seek out a potential trade partner for Freeman. Albert Breer of the NFL Network said that the team is "very open" to trading Freeman, who reportedly had asked for a trade before the start of the regular season.

Not only have they burned the crop known as Josh Freeman but they salted the earth too.

When a player is on the draft board as a 1st rounder on most scouts boards, and the guy fails I look harder at the coaching situation than the player. Now the player is tainted and might not be a bad QB. Alex Smith is a good recent example.

I don't think Schiano can coach men, I think he's limited to boys, who he can hold playing time over their head as a carrot.

Add Bucs fans to the list of unfortunate people following franchises that have no clue what they are doing. This is a team that was supposed to be moving toward playoff contention.

Before Schiano Freeman was an up and coming QB in the NFL... Now he's terrible.

Meh - dude cost Raheem Morris his job with his continued immaturity and lack of leadership.


I wouldn't want him anywhere near my team. Wouldn't want Schiano anywhere near it either.

Gotta agree with Otis. I think Freeman isn't all that and maybe more importantly, Schiano is way over his head. He walks around with a scowl on his face expecting respect. The only thing he gets is ignored.

Freeman might be better with solid coaching, Schiano would be a good prison warden, maybe.

He's a one step forward and then two steps back kind of QB.

Trading Freeman to the Jags might make sense, but it would be more fun to see him join the circus with the Jets.

Schiano may be one of those coaches who does much better as a college coach, like Steve Spurrier or Nick Saban.

But what does it say when even the Jags don't want him? Then again, they have enough mediocre QBs.

Schiano's winning percentage in college is just over .500. Tampa took a chance, it didn't work out. He needs to be cut loose.

Schiano should not be mentioned in the same sentence as Spurrier or Saban as far as college coaching. He just wasn't that good in college and he is worse in the pros.
