New Orleans Saints - QA with Josh Freeman

Q&A with Bucs QB Josh Freeman

NewOrleansSaints.com,
Thursday, November 19, 2009 - 9:00 AM



Q: What have you learned over the course of two NFL starts?


A: Iíve learned a lot. Whether it be learning about myself, what defenses are trying to do to me, speeding up my game to make it a little even, because sometimes there are instances like last week where I was scrambling and I felt like I had more time. Some of those d linemen ended up closing on me pretty fast and ended up stripping it out.


Q: What have you learned about yourself?


A: My preparation week to week, just what it takes to give your team a chance to win.


Q: Does Will Smith stand out to you at all?


A: Yes. They have a lot of guys that that stand out. They play a really aggressive style. They have a lot of standouts. We havenít really gotten into a ton of personnel. Thereís a whole lot of schemes and looking at the pressures.


Q: Did everyone seem to be on board with the rebuilding effort?


A: I guess. You have to go along with it. Everybody wants to be successful. Thatís the way the management is going along with it. Everybodyís bought in and going in the same direction.


Q: Was it hard for the club to go through the start to the season?


A: Yes. Itís always miserable when youíre not winning. For me in particular, not being in the game, being on the bench and having your team lose is really tough.


Q: What have you seen in the growth of Raheem Morris as a head coach?


A: Coach Morris has done a good job. He demands respect from the team. They team respects him and everybody plays hard for him. Heís found a way to be playerís coach, but at the same time maintain the respect he has for everyone.


Q: Have you noticed growth in him from week one to week ten in how he goes about things?


A: I donít know. I donít really know what being a head coach all entails, but from what Iíve seen heís been doing a great job.


Q: What additional things do you want to get better at after your first two starts?


A: I definitely say fumbling. Versus Green bay we had a fumbled snap. This week we had one where I fumbled and one where I dropped a shotgun snap. Itís definitely being more ball secure.


Q: How long did you expect to wait before playing? Did you expect to not play this season or expect to get a chance?


A: I really didnít know at first going through camp because Luke McCown and Byron Leftwich, they were the showcase competition. They ended up trading Luke and moving Josh Johnson to second string. At that point, I was thinking I might get to play. Then they made the switch to Josh, played me at second string. Thatís when I really felt like I would get an opportunity at some point this year.


Q: Was it everything you hoped for?


A: Itís definitely very emotional for me, not necessarily because itís the NFL, but because itís the thrill of competition, always trying to find a way to win and putting all you have into it.

Re: Q&A with Bucs QB Josh Freeman

Whoever did the Morris interview along with this one... you can tell they've been very impressed with Smith's performance this year. It's been one of the first questions brought up in both interviews.
