Righting Josh Freeman's career seems to be the first hurdle for new Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano and his staff. They need Freeman to be as accurate, as calm, as dangerous as he was in 2010. To put it another way, turning around this franchise begins with turning around Freeman.
Give the Bucs credit for this: They seem intent on surrounding Freeman with as much talent as possible. He has a new receiver in Vincent Jackson (which should make the receiving corps better). He has a new guard in Carl Nicks (which should make the line better). He has a new coaching staff with a new blueprint.
