Could the Switch to Freeman at QB be for the Remainder of the Season?

The St.Pete Times reports today about the possible permanent change to rookie QB Josh Freeman:

The Bucs made the switch to Josh Freeman after Josh Johnson threw three interceptions. Two came in the first quarter by safety Brandon Meriweather, including one returned for a touchdown on the fifth play of the game. At 0-7 and entering a bye week, the move to the rookie from Kansas State could be permanent. Rahim Morris wouldn’t commit to it, but even Johnson, who was 9-of-26 for 156 yards and a touchdown, sounded resigned to it. “I told (Morris), ‘You don’t have to say anything.’ I understand,” Johnson said. “It’s just the same situation as Byron (Leftwich). If we don’t win games, maybe Josh is going to play. “It’s about taking advantage enough, and if we are not winning football games, I’m not taking advantage of that opportunity. We are an 0-7 football team. So somebody has to step up and do something about it.”
