Mike Glennon Wants To Test Darrelle RevisJune 4th, 2013
Joe must give Bucs rookie quarterback Mike Glennon credit. If he’s going to fail, he wants to go down guns blazing, almost like a gunslinger’s mentality.
In a recent NFL.com video, Glennon was interviewed by (unemployed) safety Jordan Babineaux, who asked him if he had the courage to go after star cornerback Darrelle Revis in training camp.
In so many words, Glennon said, “Let’s go after Revis.”
Jordan Babineaux: Let’s talk about [Darrelle] Revis for a minute. Here it is your first day of training camp, or whenever he decides to get back on the field, when he is healthy. Do you go at him?
Mike Glennon: (Laughs) I like to test my limits and going against the best. As a rookie, you don’t really know how good you are until you go against the best. I think it would be good to test my limits and see if maybe I can fit a ball in against him and see what I am capable of doing.
Joe likes that attitude. Test yourself against the best. Know if you can hang with the best and if you can’t, learn how to grow. There will be no better measuring stick for Glennon than trying to squeeze a throw past Revis.
Between that and Josh Freeman helping Glennon adjust to life in the NFL (as both Freeman and Glennon have gone on the record saying), it should help make for a fun training camp, which will get going in late July.
And, yes, Joe will be out at One Buc Palace today for OTAs and, naturally, you can expect all sorts of stuff posted throughout the day
