that said, I think our Defense is in pretty rough shape. Not sure how much a franchise QB will mean this season.

Josh Freeman to sign with Minnesota Vikings - ESPN

If he can somehow manage to be even league average, this offense ends up clicking. Plus he is only 25, which is about 12 years younger then most retreads they bring in.

Don't let the last 10 or so games fool you, it's not entirely his fault. Greg Schiano (sp?) is a complete clown, and that team runs almost an exclusively vertical passing game, so of course his comp% is going to be low.
We just found our franchise QB for the next 7 or 8 years.

Freeman by NO means is a franchise QB. The first 3 weeks he was worse than Ponder. However, if he can turn around (which I doubt because Musgrave is an idiot) then he'll be better than Ponder.
The wild card is Matt Cassel. If he has a good performance against the Panthers, how can you not start him against the Giants and (potentially) go 3-3? If Cassel falters, then play Freeman.
