Glennon Matching, Exceeding McCoy’s Work RateJune 8th, 2014
Lovie Smith’s ordained “quarterback of the future” impresses the leader of the Buccaneers’ defense.
In fact, Gerald McCoy sure sounds like he wants to live up to Mike Glennon’s example.
Speaking last week to the TBD In The AM show on CBS Sports Radio, McCoy painted a picture of Glennon driven to succeed, while utilizing the Greg Schiano method of maximizing all 1,440 minutes of every day.
“Mike can be great, man,” McCoy said. “He’s a sponge. And all Mike wants to do is get better. All offseason, every day I would go in [to One Buc Palace], Mike was in there either before me or coming in with me. You know, Mike was up there getting better. You know he didn’t have anybody to throw to, but he worked on things. He was up there working out because, you know, he felt he needed to put on some weight, he needed to get stronger, and he was just up there working every day as hard as he can. And you watch him.
“Last year, he was walking around with his playbook constantly. You’d never not see him with his playbook, or have it open. He’d walk through the hallways and almost bump into you because his head is down because he’s looking at his playbook. And he just wants to be better. He wants to be great, and all he thinks about is getting better. And that’s awesome.”
Calm down, Mike Glennon Mob. Joe still believes Josh McCown is 100 percent the 2014 opening day starter, barring injury. But this is great insight from McCoy for Mob members and all Bucs fans to savor.
Glennon is a strong backup and surely seems to a winning mentality about his job. Joe’s grateful the Bucs have a good No. 2 QB. Few NFL teams can boast that.
