Josh Freeman was benched yesterday by head coach Greg Schiano. If you have a game ticket for this week’s home game against the Arizona Cardinals, you might just have a picture of Josh Freeman, in the orange creamsicle uniform, looking at you as you enter the game to see Mike Glennon’s first career start.
You can see that the ticket also markets this as the “Throwback Game”. That would make this ticket 0-fer Sunday.
Last week, it was announced that the Buccaneers would not be doing the throwback game this year, because of a new league policy that players should wear the same helmet all year. Switching from the pewter helmet color to the all-white background Bucco Bruce swashbuckler would have been too difficult, and the team didn’t want to go with the same helmet while wearing the throwback uniform.
As a result, disregard that guy in that orange jersey featured on your ticket, fans. I would probably demand a free beer or two for the inconvenience.
