Josh Freeman please.

Okay. Now just hear me out. Josh Freeman is a good quarterback. And he's young. Michael Vick is a very temporary answer. Nick Foles I just don't see being a long term answer either. And if Matt Barkley is the long term answer, he hasn't proven it. Just look at this stat line:

16 games started, 3,500 yards passing, 62.8% completions, 25 touchdowns, six interceptions, 7.8 yards per attempt, 364 yards rushing, and a 95.9 QB rating.

Thats Freeman's 2010 campaign. When he led the Bucs to a 10-6 record. He was 22. Before all the half-truth drug stories. Before all the bullshit. And although he may not be as mobile as Vick, he's still mobile enough to run this offense. Last year he ran for 300+ yards. His senior year at Kansas State he ran for 400+ yards and 14 TDs. Now let's go back to the stats above and compare them.

Michael Vick:

10 games started, 2,300 yards passing, 58.1% completions, 12 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, 6.7 yards per attempt, 343 yards rushing, 78.1 QB rating.

This was our starting quarterback last year. This is our starting quarterback this year. In the last 25 years, I can only think of one time we've had a QB with the type of line Freeman had. 2004. Donovan McNabb. That's it. Freeman is a talented quarterback. And you don't have to go back to 2010 to see it either. Last year in a 9 game stretch from October 14th to December 9th. He threw 19 TDs and 4 INTs. In 9 games. He had over a 100.0 QB rating in the first 5 of those games. He won 5 of those games and made the Bucs look like a playoff team. We need a long term answer and honestly I see it being Josh Freeman.
