Glennon Vows To FightApril 8th, 2014
The blessed son of the Mike Glennon Mob stood before reporters today at One Buc Palace and was peppered with questions about being a backup quarterback, dethroned by Josh McCown when Lovie Smith signed him.
Glennon vowed to fight for his job and fight for his team.
No. 8 didn’t disagree with reporters who labeled him the backup quarterback out of the gate, and Glennon echoed what Lovie Smith said last month after McCown was signed — that McCown is No. 1 on the depth chart right now.
“That’s not going to stop me from competing,” Glennon said of the “business” of the NFL. Glennon said he spent the offseason throwing with teammates and working on the fine points of his game, such as footwork, and getting “bigger, faster, stronger.”
“All the things that every quarterback in the NFL is working on,” Glennon said.
Glennon wouldn’t go there when asked whether he believed he could win the starting job if he played great through preseason and training camp. Glennon referred that question to Lovie and said Lovie told the team “the best players will play.”
Glennon said he’s eager to learn from Josh McCown and appreciative of the opportunity.
Joe was glad to see Glennon’s fighting spirit. He’ll need it big time after the Bucs draft a quarterback next month.
