“Proven Himself Worthy”August 4th, 2013
Lots of fans and media types have been zeroed in on all things Mike Glennon during training camp. Some believe that even if Glennon isn’t competing now with Josh Freeman, Glennon’s development is an important factor in the Bucs season.
NFL Network’s Rich Hollenberg has been a fixture at Bucs camp and offered a major thumbs up to Glennon during an interview with Bucs beat man Tom Krasniqi of WDAE-AM 620.
Hollenberg said Glennon has been impressive and has “proven himself worthy” of being a strong, rookie No. 2 quarterback. Krasniqi said Glennon has been more impressive than Freeman this summer, though he countered that there is no quarterback controversy.
Joe gets that media needs something to discuss, but Joe can’t offer any decent evaluation of Glennon. Let’s see the guy on Thursday in a half game or more against the Ravens, and then again against the Patriots.
Joe is pulling for Glennon in a big way. If he can, in fact, master the offense and look like a viable backup, then the Bucs can skip wasting a third-quarterback roster spot on Dan Orlovsky.
