Prima Donna Thinks That Josh Freeman Is a Top-5 Quarterback

And if anyone wondered why Antonio Gates called Vincent Jackson a prima donna

Well, that statement doesn’t make Vincent Jackson a prima donna, but it sure questions his ability to judge talent around the league. I will definitely send him an invite to join a fantasy football league though!

Here is what Vincent told the Tampa Bay Times:

“We were a little more flashy as far as the names go (in San Diego), but I think we’re just as talented here all the way across the board.” Jackson said Monday. “We have tight ends, running backs and obviously, Josh Freeman, and he’s a quarterback I think should be mentioned among the top five in the league.” – Tampa Bay Times

First off, Freeman a top-5 quarterback in the league? Maybe he meant Top-5 quarterback that he has played with. Maybe he tossed back a couple of brews before he made this statement. Drinking and driving is bad, but drinking and interviewing just is dumb.

Back to the first statement: the Chargers are more flashy with the names at the skill positions then the Tampa Bay Bucs are, BUT they have wide receivers, running backs and tight ends… that shall remain nameless.

Name a running back, tight end and receiver (not named Vincent Jackson) on their roster without looking it up? Go ahead, give it a try!

HINT: Kellen Winslow and Warrick Dunn are not on that roster anymore.

  • 619chargers4life

    lol, yeah he is trippen, Tampa who, Tampa what, where are they located again? isnt that the same team that didnt have a kickoff return for a TD in like 30 years or something. what a joke. he gonna say whatever for that money. he starting to remind me of Dennis Rodman, confused lol

  • MC Boltman

    HAHA! VJax should think about a career as stand-up comedian. With statements like these, you´ll get a hell of a lot of laughs, thats for sure.
    Have fun with your money Vincent, we´ll have fun with that trophy :) Bolt Up!

  • Brandon Reisinger

    I’m sure he knows better, hes just doing the press thing… He could care less how much talent is on that team, hes got his $$$$$!! Hes made it pretty obvious that is most important to him

  • #TheBoltFather

    As soon as I saw your tweet I was waiting for this article. Nice. Like you mentioned, fnny how he didn’t name any of the Wrs, RBs, and TEs.
    He’s a playmaker, no doubt, but I’ll miss his blocking in the run game the most. Top 5 blocking WR in the game.

  • @BOLTSFAN1972

    So VJ is saying is Tampa is an 8-8 team lol

  • Pels04

    Player/ Coach interviews are pretty much pointless. They never answer anything and when they do its 95% BS. This, we all know is 100% BS

  • Ignatius

    What dis you expect him say? That Rivers is a better than Freeman? Everybody knows that, obviously he’s goint to support his QB all the way because as he is feeding him the ball, his paycheck grown. Man, if I were him, I would walk Freeman’s dog, wash his car and take out the thrash just as long as he plays well.

  • Kenny Redman

    Maybe he ment a top 5 QB in the NFC South…after Brees, Newton, Ryan,and clausen….ouch

  • Rell668

    Lol, right now u can’t name no one on the chargers offense besides gates, and he’s old and beat up. Chargers lost a lot of players.

    • Ernie Padaon

      weird.. our quarterback is pretty good… good ol’ whats his name

  • Smells Like Team Spirit

    I’m not saying the Bucs or Josh Freeman are going to set the world on fire this year, but I am saying you guys sound a little bitter. Can you name one team that has won a Super Bowl in San Diego? I can….Tampa Bay Bitches!

    • Bill Dodge

      Lame comment. How many people from that championship team are still with the organization?

      • Smells Like Team Spirit

        One. But how many players from the Chargers championsh…. whoops. My mistake.
