“Pre-Dawn” Glennon Passes Leadership ScrutinyNovember 20th, 2013
Greg Schiano loves him some Mike Glennon.
The leader of the New Schiano Order is glowing about his guy.
During an interview with Gil Brandt and Alex Marvez on SiriusXM NFL Radio before the win against the Falcons, Schiano explained how Glennon is the total package.
“I’ll tell you, Gil. I really like Mike Glennon. I think he’s got a real bright future. He’s got all the things you look for. No. 1, he loves the game and loves to work at the game. And then he’s a pre-dawn guy at the facility and he’s here well after dinnertime. I mean he studies it. He works at it. He takes care of his body,” Schiano said. “One of the knocks on him coming out is, you know, he wasn’t a great leader. Well, that’s the furthest thing from the truth. He takes control, has taken control of our huddle. I really think he can be a tremendous football player. He’s very, very coachable, reads plays out the way that you ask him to. You know, when you do that, it gives you a chance to distribute the ball to all the different receivers. It keeps everybody in the game. And he’s just got a really good temperament to be a quarterback.”
Interesting was Schiano referencing a knock on Glennon not being a great leader when he was drafted. Perhaps that’s why Schiano didn’t oust Josh Freeman sooner?
Regardless, Schiano is all-in now. It’s all about No. 8. If Glennon continues to thrive, Joe can’t imagine Team Glazer breaking up this marriage.
