We get it. Vincent Jackson is happy to be out of San Diego and with the up and coming Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But that happiness doesn’t give him the license to make outlandish statements about his new quarterback.
We’ve been down this road once, but that time it was with Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. And as absurd as it was for Flacco to state that he’s the best quarterback in the league, it is even more absurd for Vincent Jackson to even think, let alone say, that Josh Freeman should be mentioned as a top five quarterback. But that’s exactly what Jackson did.
“We were a little more flashy as far as the names go (in San Diego), but I think we’re just as talented here all the way across the board.” Jackson said Monday. “We have tight ends, running backs and obviously, Josh Freeman, and he’s a quarterback I think should be mentioned among the top five in the league.”
Josh Freeman who threw 22 INTs last season is top 5 quarterback? Come on now. Let’s just calm down, Vincent.
