Mike Glennon And Colin KaepernickDecember 11th, 2013
So we’ve seen Mike Glennon log three so-so games, all in succession, against three teams in Detroit, Carolina and Buffalo that are known to be unkind to quarterbacks.
It doesn’t get much easier Sunday with the rugged 49ers coming to town. Yes, Glennon is beginning to look like a rookie selected in the third round, and the Custodian of Canton, eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune, pointed out how much the Bucs’ passing game this season, largely with Glennon behind center, is sputtering.
@IKaufmanTBO: The Buccaneers rank 31st in the league in passing yards per game. The only club below them? Try Sunday’s opponent, the San Francisco 49ers.
But here is the difference between Glennon and Kaepernick. Glennon has yet to produce a winning season. Even starting after the Bucs washed their hands of leaky Rip Van Freeman, Glennon has a 4-6 record.
Kaepernick had the 49ers on the very doorstep of a Super Bowl victory. Additionally, Kaepernick is a dangerous man. While he will never make anyone forget Aaron Rodgers, Kaepernick has the skills, both with his arm and his legs, to hurt teams. He’s averaging more than five yards a carry, 78 rushes for 407 yards, but only has two 300+ yard passing days in his career.
While the Bucs and 49ers are the worst passing teams in the NFL, Joe wouldn’t blink an eye to choose Kaepernick over Glennon.
