Tampa Bay Buccaneers weekly report


The Buccaneers had the bye this week, meaning they could sit home and ponder their 0-7 record and a whole host of issues that have left fans wondering if their team will ever get rid of that goose egg.


For more on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, visit the team's Web site.

With rookie quarterback Josh Freeman taking over the offense, he had an extra week to get ready for his start against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at home.


Freeman replaces second-year pro Josh Johnson, who made four starts.


Bucs' coach Raheem Morris said Freeman has earned the right to be the QB.


The Buccaneers' problems don't end there. The team released offensive lineman Marcus Johnson after his arrest on DUI charges. He had played in all six games after the Bucs signed him on Sept. 2, after the Raiders released him.


The team also cut center Sean Mahan and promoted offensive tackle James Lee from the practice squad to the active roster. Mahan had started the first four games of the season before being benched in favor of Jeff Faine.


Can the Bucs turn it around? We can only wait and see.
