Freeman to Start Day One for the Bucs?

Buccaneers Freeman Football
Will first-round pick QB Josh Freeman be the day one starter for the Bucs in 2009? That’s a question that will be talked about all the way up to the opener, and today over at National Football Post, Michael Lombardi put out his take on if it will happen or not:

Very doubtful, but he just might be able to beat out the other quarterbacks on the Bucs’ roster. All the talk about Byron Leftwich being signed as a smoke screen is just talk. I was told by a very good source that the reason they signed Leftwich was because Luke McCown was unimpressive in the recent mini-camp. The Bucs have many options at quarterback, but in reality, they have only one long-term solution — Josh Freeman, and he will play soon. Any day now, back-up QB Brian Griese will either be traded or waived as the Bucs cut down on the number of players at that position.

There’s no doubt that Freeman was the player the Bucs wanted, and if he starts the season not as the starter, it won’t last long.

    I believe we WILL see him start for Tampa.
    And why NOT ?
    The Bucs are rebuilding, and have an impossibly tough schedule.
    IF a rookie QB is thrown in, and they do not have a winning record, blame it on the rookie QB ?
    I say throw him in, let him learn ?
    We aint going to the Super Bowl this year anyway, so why not ?
