This reminds me of the Draft discussion about him last year and how people basically laughed at you if you said he would resemble anything halfway decent as an NFL QB. People were all over him and bashed him to no end about how huge a failure he would be, I'm sure there were some in the other corner also but it was a small group compared to the latter.
The biggest complaint with Freeman was that he still had a lot of work to do, and frankly he still does. He can certainly become a top QB, but if his progress hits a snag he very well could still end up a complete bust.

Is Shaun Hill a top 10 QB? Definitely not. Is he a top 20 one? Almost certainly.
I still believe it so...Freeman will end up a bust.
Plus, even if I didn't, my ego is too big to concede this early.
It's not a big deal. Some players just adapt from the college to the pro game. If you watch Freeman play this year (compared to KState), he's much more advanced physically and mentally. Stats aside, the guy is on the right track and shaping himself well. The same thing happened to Matt Ryan from college to the pros.
Lol yea that makes alot of sense. People are too quick to judge a rookie QB, off their good and bad play. Who didn't expect terrible games from him? I didn't even think he was ready to play this year honestly let alone look as good as he did in some starts.
He's got the tools to be a good QB, and once you go with your franchise QB you don't bench him again. They almost always have terrible games, it's part of the growing pains. He'll be fine I think, but no reason for people to start calling him a bust all over or talking about benching him for poor performances.
