Check out this story out of Tampa. There is a story that is saying that head coach Greg Schiano rigged the team vote so that starting quarterback Josh Freeman was not selected as team captain. Way to get behind your player there. The quarterback only touches the ball on every offensive play and calls the plays in the huddle.
Here is a snippet from the story:
Wednesday’s train wreck du jour involved reports that coach Greg Schiano rigged the outcome of a team election so quarterback Josh Freeman would not be named one of the team captains.
Schiano told the Tampa Bay Times he was the one who tallied the votes and Freeman was not chosen, and any story that suggested otherwise was “100 percent false.”
Then came another report that there was a players-only meeting and the legitimacy of the captain’s vote might have been on the agenda. – TampaBay.com
In the end, Freeman might be losing his job as the starting quarterback. He has been on thin ice for a while in that position and this fake voting could be one reason why coach didn’t want a 2nd string quarterback as a team captain. In the end, Josh should worry more about leading the team on the field. He has to step up or he won’t even be on the roster in a year from now.
