Schiano Quotes Sticking With Derrick BrooksNovember 30th, 2013
Before the Bucs beating of the Lions, Bucs icon Derrick Brooks talked about how Mike Glennon is a Greg Schiano man.
Speaking to Steve Duemig on WDAE-AM 620, Brooks noted that more than anything else, Glennon is pleasing his head coach and doing as he’s told.
Brooks said Glennon is performing per his coach’s instructions, but it goes a step further.
“When you go back and think about several of the quotes that Coach Schiano said when he made the quarterback change, one of the quotes that very distinctly stood out to me was, ‘We want somebody at the quarterback position that’s going to do what we say in the game plan,’” Brooks said. “And that stuck with me in terms of, you know, his relationship with Josh [Freeman]. And maybe that wasn’t happening. Or maybe they was expecting something, but that quote stood with me. And it seems to be when [Schiano] talks about his quarterback after a game, a lot of it is, Mike Glennon, you know for good, better or indifferent, is sticking to the play script.”
Schiano’s No. 1 core belief is “Trust.” And it’s extraordinarily clear that he trusts Glennon implicitly.
Even if Glennon stumbles and looks more like a rookie during his final five games, as long as he’s a good soldier in the New Schiano Order, Joe’s confident Glennon will be “the guy” under Schiano next season. But that wouldn’t mean drafting a QB is out of the question.
