The 0-3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the 1-2 Arizona Cardinals at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday. The tickets for the game tout quarterback Josh Freeman.
What’s the problem, you say?
Besides Freeman donning the atrocious creamsicle-colored throwback Bucs uniform, the fifth-year signal caller has been replaced by rookie Mike Glennon as the starting quarterback this week against the Cardinals.
Tampa Bay also won’t be wearing the helmet worn by Freeman in the photo. The NFL said before the season started that although teams can wear throwback jerseys during the season, they may not change out their helmets from game to game.
Freeman had been Tampa Bay’s starter for more than three-and-a-half years until recently. He has completed only 45.7 percent of his passes this season.
If there is one week where he shouldn’t be used in the team’s marketing strategy, it would be this.
