For the second game in a row, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman has been given the freedom to launch the ball down the field in an effort to connect on the big play.
The coaching staff seems to have made a large shift in how they are allowing Freeman to Jordans For Sale. During the first three games, Freeman threw the ball just 80 times. In his next two he attempted 65 passes.
Freeman is also throwing the ball downfield more. After not trying a pass of 20 yards or more against the Carolina Panthers, and being forced to throw six in a shootout with the New York Giants, Freeman notched 11 long passes in his first three games.
Against the Redskins and the Chiefs, he posted eight passes of 20 yards or more.
Against the Washington Redskins in Week 4, Freeman was 3-of-3 for 141 yards on passes of 20 yards or more. Against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6, Freeman was 3-of-5 for 160 yards and a touchdown on cheap air jordans.
Freeman has been called upon to throw deep more often, quite frankly because he’s good at it and the plays seem to be working.
Freeman’s 19 attempts of deep passes of 20 yards or more rank 21st in the league. But his 11 completions place him eighth on the list. Furthermore, Freeman has logged 464 yards through the air on deep balls, more than any quarterback in the NFL.
Let’s look at Freeman’s three completions of 20 yards or more against the Chiefs.
