Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman's inconsistent performance and dropped passes by his receivers plagued the team's aerial attack in the first half of the season. The miscues have tested Freeman's confidence in some of his top targets. TE Kellen Winslow has been guilty of a few of the drops, and he and Freeman have engaged in some heated sideline conversations this season, but we hear Freeman trusts the eighth-year tight end as much as any teammate. Winslow led the team in receptions in each of the past two seasons and is tied with WR Mike Williams for the team lead this season with 31. Winslow's yardage and touchdown production is well off his usual pace, though. Sources say Winslow has been frustrated with the few drops he's made and the team's overall inconsistency this season, but he does not appear concerned about his numbers, or the fact that Williams, whose hands have been less reliable than Winslow's this season, has been targeted a team-high 63 times.
