You might wonder where Ron Jaworski was hiding out for most of the 2011 football season.

Seems the ESPN analyst is a little late to the party when it comes to breaking down film and wondering out loud why Josh Freeman had such a crappy season in 2011.

Yes Jaws, the Homer Simpson of timely Freeman observations, believes that Freeman actually lost confidence last season.

Lost confidence? Wow, now there's a revelation akin to cracking the Da Vinci Code. Oh that crafty Jaws, after figuring out the Bucs lost 10 games in a row, he used his astute powers of observation to come up with the good old "lost confidence" observation.

But wait, his in-depth knowledge of Freeman's 2011 performance doesn't stop there.

Get this: Jaws actually figured out that Freeman "made poor decisions." Stop the presses!

Oh, those bad decisions and darn it, we thought that the defense giving up more yards than Carter has pills might have had something to do with the cesspool parade at Raymond James.

The acute observation powers of Jaworski don't stop there, however.

Jaws noticed that Freeman "made too many throws that weren't there." Cowabunga, dude! Now how in the world did he see that?

Wow, this guy's an ace.

No confidence, poor decisions, throws that weren't there? Why didn't someone tell Raheem Morris about all of this?

Okay, now we know. But that's not all. There's some icing to go on the cake that Ron "Captain Obvious" Jaworski just baked for us.

Dig this: "He needs to focus on the small details. The discipline of the position."

Heavens to Mergatroid!

Now we know why they fired Morris and hired Greg Schiano. It's those darned "small details."

Now attention to detail didn't sit well with Kellen Winslow Jr., who can now gripe at the Seattle quarterback to force the football to him. Maybe Jaws didn't know that Winslow was yapping at Freeman all year to force, er, throw the football to him. Details, details.

Attention to detail IS Schiano's deal.

As for Jaworski?

Last we checked, he was watching game film of the Buccaneer defense from last season with Homer Simpson and they've decided that the linebackers didn't do squat.
