Buccaneers bench Freeman

The Buccaneers' disenchantment with Josh Freeman reached a breaking point today, as the team is reportedly benching him in favor of rookie Mike Glennon. The Buccaneers are 0-3 under Freeman this season, although two of those games were one-point losses decided in the final minutes. Freeman's completion percentage is a miserable 45.7 percent, but is he shouldering too much of the blame?
