Glennon Says He Has Much To LearnJune 11th, 2013
Rookie quarterback Mike Glennon may have earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in 4 1/2 years at North Carolina State, but he’s no prodigy when it comes to the Bucs playbook.
Glennon explained today that most if not all of the Bucs plays have been rolled out this offseason, but he’s not ready to take the field.
“Definitely not there. I have a general idea of what we’re trying to accomplish on every play. But I need to get in the playbook more and have a better understanding come camp,” Glennon told JoeBucsFan.com after today’s practice. “With time and with reps I’m sure that will come. I’m definitely a lot more comfortable than I was a month ago. I know the play calls. I know what’s going on. Now I just have to continue to improve every day.”
Now Joe doesn’t expect Glennon to be ready to start a football game today. Heck, it’s ok if Glennon isn’t ready on opening day. (Joe’s not among the wackos that expect Glennon to be the franchise savior.)
Joe’s only illustrating how much there is for a rookie to soak in, especially at QB, especially in a system that QB coach John McNulty told Joe took Mark Brunell and Eli Manning a few years to master.
