Weak Vikings Debut for Josh FreemanPublished October 22, 2013 by OCR Editor
The recently acquired Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman displayed one of the worst shows from a quarterback in the NFL.
Many hopes were built for new Minnesota Vikings quarterback, Josh Freeman. The Vikings acquired Freeman from Tampa Bay just earlier this month, hoping that the 25-year old will be able to shake off his bad performance and start anew in Minnesota. Much was expected when the Vikings announced Freeman will start against last night's game against the New York Giants. Coach Leslie Frazier gave the new quarterback a chance after the blowout loss against the Carolina Panthers.
Sadly, as the game began it was clear Freeman was far from being in his best shape. While he did not receive much help from the Vikings' gameplan, his individual performance was sub-par. He attempted 53 passes, mostly low-percentage deep throws, only a few hit the mark. Freeman finished 20 of 53 for 910 yards, concluding the game with a 37.7 completion percentage. It was crushing to see this performance, one of the worst shown from a quarterback in the NFL. The New York Giants came to the game with six losses on their sheet, and luckily for them, Freeman's terrible performance helped them secure a 23-7 victory over the Vikings.
Keeping in mind that this was Freeman's first Vikings game on a Monday night, the quarterback still has a chance to prove himself. Will Freeman compensate on the Viking's next game?
