“Biggest Jump” Should Be Next For GlennonFebruary 21st, 2014
Talking to Joe this afternoon at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, longtime NFL general manager and scouting guru Bill Polian, now an ESPN and SirusXM NFL Radio analyst, shared his philosophy on a quarterback’s development over his first four seasons in the game.
Per Polian, if Mike Glennon is on the right path — and remains the starter — then he’ll begin to grasp NFL defenses in 2014.
“Offseason between the first and second years [a quarterback] makes the biggest jump, becomes a man physically, learns what his team can do, learns what his offense is all about and what it’s supposed to do and begins to understand what defenses are doing to him,” Polian said.
Now that should be very soothing to the Mike Glennon Mob.
Mob members can also warm their hearts thinking about the amazing strides Josh Freeman made from his Year 1 to Year 2. Freeman was astounding, leading his very young team to a 10-6 record and finishing second in rushing among NFL starting QBs, in addition to 25 touchdowns versus six interceptions.
Ahh, the memories.
