BREAKING "Vikings sign QB Josh Freeman to a one year contract"


I'll give you my take when the dust settles. Firstly I'd like to post some stats and videos of our newest player and welcome him to the team!  His twitter handle is @JF5x 

How many much will his followers number go up?

If you're dying for up to the minute news stories on the Freeman signing click here. It's every news source online!  Here is a take from last night from an anonymous source within the Vikings.

"I think Josh Freeman is a good player," a Vikings source told ESPN's Josina Anderson. "We just have to figure out where things went wrong in Tampa Bay so we can help him. He is too young not to progress."

Ok, let's look at his career stats.  Click on any image to enlarge them all and scroll in the light box.  I picked situational stats to get a better look.

It will be interesting to see how he adjusts to the dome games week in and out if he sticks around.  (Though he is 2-0 here)  One thing that pops out to me, he seems solid in short and long passing plays, but real herky jerk with intermediate routes, same can be said for when he is in opposition territory trying to get into scoring position.  Does this mean he is just bad at making reads and decisions?  WELP 

I honestly have only seen the kid play the two times he played against us. He played great, he was 41-67, 500 yards, 4 TDs and one INT.  He also engineered that nice 17-0 comeback against us the first time around and last year they beat us pretty sound in the dome as well.  

Here are some highlights of what he is capable of... he definitely has a great arm!  He also seems fearless, which may explain some the interception numbers.  His passer rating in tie games is his best.

Super Bowl homeboy =D
