Pat Welter of TBO.com and Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune discuss how Thursday’s preseason opener against the Baltimore Crows is really important for quarterback Mike Glennon in this TBO.com video.
And all this from robert who has yet to see him play. I hope he doesn’t let you down robert. Seeing how you expect at some point in the season he will replace Freeman even without seeing him throw one pass yet.
You remind me of me back in 1987 with Vinny. Course Vinny was a #1 draft pick and Heisman trophy winner. Poor bastard might have won a ring had the Bucs not selected him.
Just from some of the video you can tell that Glennon has a rifle for an arm. I would like to see him progress just so we could carry only two QB’s. We could use that extra spot for other needy positions. I can’t help but think if Glennon does well that we will hear fans like robert clamour for Glennon to start and try to create a controversy. I know Joe and the organization keep saying Freeman is the man but if Glennon does well it will fuel the Freeman detractors to scream for Glennon louder.
With this hanging over the franchise at the start of the regular season it can’t be a good problem to have, even though they may say it doesn’t matter, it can split a locker room. How is it a good thing to have your starting QB constantly looking over his shoulders all the time? I question Dominik for doing this in the last year of Freemans contract. This is a move they could have addressed after the 2013 season. The Ravens didn’t even do that to Flacco last year. They knew it would have been a distraction.
I want Mike Glennon to do well but not at the expense of creating more of a QB controversy, after a couple of preseason games, this close to the start of the regular season. For those who say the preseason won’t matter, let’s wait and see Friday morning how many Freeman detractors scream for Glennon after his first preseason game.
No one is going to scream for Glennon before his first pre-season game except those like Robert and his henchmen who want so much for Freeman to be replaced. Been through a lot of pre-season wonders here who fell flat on their face when the real games began. From Randy “Why Not Minot” Hedberg who played well against the then Baltimore Colts (yes my youthful posters the Colts were once in Baltimore) to Jerry Golstyne, our fans have often given too much credit for lighting it up against teams with no real game plan to stop them. What a dream job the back-up QB is. Find me one of those gigs Robert the “Head Hunter”.
