Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
In any dispute, there are two sides to the story and the truth, which inevitably lies somewhere in between.
Josh Freeman was regarded as one of the top young quarterbacks in all of football as late as 2012 before Greg Schiano and Leslie Frazier proved to be the most powerful tag-team since the Road Warriors while taking turns destroying the 26-year-old's reputation.
