Glennon Talks Johnny Football, BridgewaterJanuary 18th, 2014
Mike Glennon has a cousin working in Delaware radio, so it’s no surprise that the Bucs’ gunslinger took to the airwaves of WDSD-FM this week to chat.
Glennon talked about how confident he is after proving he can perform against the best defenses in the world and, of course, Glennon shared his admiration of guys he might compete with this spring, Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater.
“I think, obviously, Johnny Football is a tremendous talent and will sell tickets immediately,” Glennon said. “Anyplace he goes, fans are going to want to go see him play. It will just be interesting to see how if his speed can translate into the NFL. I know I thought the same thing about Russell Wilson; I didn’t know if his speed was going to be able to translate into the NFL, which it did.”
“I’ve been impressed with [Teddy] Bridgewater from what I’ve seen. He’s really just kind of calm, his demeanor, never seems to get rattled, makes some good throws.”
Glennon went on to say the career of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron shouldn’t be ignored because it always takes a great QB to succeed, even with a stellar supporting cast.
As for Glennon’s current plans, he finished up “two weeks off” away from football and is busy back in the weight room and watching film of himself and quarterbacks around the NFL. Glennon said he’ll be living year-round in Tampa.
Joe thinks it’s pretty cool that Glennon was happy to talk about college quarterbacks he might be competing with in a matter of days.
