Good Grantland Article On Freeman And Bucs

Kinda long article. I read it a little while ago and here's the short version:

So, with that being said, would the Buccaneers bench Freeman if they had started 2-1? I don't think that they would. Freeman's numbers would still be terrible, but Schiano would likely look past the numbers to point out how well the team was playing, given its win-loss record. He might even throw in a "stats are for losers" quote. And if I believe that, because Freeman's performance is the same in both scenarios, I have to accept that the primary reason the Buccaneers are benching Freeman is because of their win-loss record. And I do believe that too. I think Freeman has played awfully enough to lose his job, and I believe the Buccaneers can do better than him at quarterback, but I think the move to an inexperienced, raw Glennon is a desperate attempt to turn around a rapidly spiraling season.
