According to Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times, everyone within the Buccaneers organization is on board with quarterback Josh Freeman, except head coach Greg 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.
General manager Mark Dominik, who drafted Freeman, admits the quarterback has displayed some frustrating swings in his play. Everyone knows that is indisputable. But Dominik, you’ll notice, maintains his effusive praise of Freeman. He’s been asked about the quarterback as often or more than Schiano during this offseason, and Dominik has never publicly expressed major doubts.
Whether Schiano likes it or not, his starting quarterback in 2013 will be Josh Freeman. The only way Schiano is going to get his own quarterback is if Freeman flames out over the next couple of years.
