“He Surprised Everybody”October 14th, 2013
Bucs icon Ronde Barber was part of the Bucs-Eagles FOX broadcast team, and in the wrap-up video below, Barber sings the praises of Mike Glennon, saying “he surprised everybody” with his strong play Sunday.
Yes, Glennon did good things, more good than bad. Absolutely. But Joe can’t sit around and rave about the guy yet. He’s got to get more bottom-line results and it’s awfully early.
Bruce Gradkowski (2006) and Josh Freeman (2009) were rookies who became starters in midseason on bad teams. They both opened up 1-1 and looked promising.
Joe’s not trying to be a downer, but Glennon’s got a ways to go in his development. Keep in mind, there’s also game film on him now. NFL defenses have a way of catching up to young quarterbacks.
