Nobody tell Gordon Gekko, but Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman has a problem with greed.
Freeman told WQYK in Tampa Bay on the King David Show that he was working on his game during the offseason. And the biggest problem that he was having? Freeman was simply too greedy (via Sports Radio Interviews).
“When I say greedy, from a quarterback’s mentality, obviously you know this, sometimes you want to take the shot, you want the pretty touchdown, but I just have to realize that seven points is just seven points regardless of how you look at it,” Freeman said. “Whether it is checking the ball down maybe hitting the flat route, whether it is a ten-play drive or a two-play bomb drive, seven points is just seven points. I just have to start being more conservative and in the long run more efficient from a standpoint of completion, completion percentage and overall passing efficiency.”
A couple of other notes making their way Around the Web on Tuesday:
- Worried that Free Reign came to an end when Cory Procter was released by the Cowboys? Fret not. Proctor told the Sun Sentinel that not only is the band getting back together, it never left. Awesome, the world needs more heavy-metal music. He should fit with celebrity owners Fergie, Marc Anthony and that one gal who was with Miami Sound Machine.
- Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen has long been in the spotlight, dating back to his high school days in Sherman Oaks, Calif. Even esteemed NFL.com personality Gil Brandt talked about him in his chat today. But Clausen told the Charlotte Observer that he is content right now with just being the Panthers backup quarterback. For now.
