Leading Glennon To The “Hall Of Fame”

May 13th, 2014
"Follow Josh McCown, my son."

“Follow Josh McCown, my son.”

Josh McCown is one giant fan of Mike Glennon, so he detailed today at One Buc Palace.

McCown is certain Glennon is destined for greatness. But, surprisingly, McCown told reporters he hasn’t watched any of Glennon’s game tape.

McCown’s high marks for Glennon and his projections for Glennon’s future are based on what he’s seen with his own eyes through the past five weeks, and in box scores from 2013.

It wasn’t coming from Joe, but McCown was peppered with questions from local media about Lovie Smith’s “quarterback of the future,” aka Glennon.

McCown was happy to entertain all the angles and share all kinds of love about the Tampa Bay “cannon” waiting in the wings. McCown talked about how excited he is to start for the Bucs, and he also reiterated how serious he takes his role as mentor-in-chief.

“It’s a great quarterbacks room. I want to get Mike Glennon, you know, my hope is that one day Mike Glennon is a Hall of Famer. I take great pride in saying, ‘You know, you had a small part of that, man,’” McCown said. “He has everything out in front of him. And so it’s just to help him and help make him better. Whenever that time is, that time is.

“And so [Glennon] pushes me, and I’m just trying to bring him along and make him better. I think that’s good for the Bucs. That’s good for our team. Whenever you have two guys pushing and working with each other but, you know, both parties just wanting the best for the team, that’s when you can capture something special. That’s the hope for Mike and I. And I think he’s got a real, real bright future. I do. I think he’s super talented. He’s a hard worker. He’s really sharp. He’s going to have a great career.”

McCown explained his mentoring approach is fluid and focused on what will help Glennon avoid “potholes” McCown encountered in his career, in addition to emphasizing positive coaching tips.

So what makes Glennon worthy of the “quarterback of the future” label? McCown was asked.

“I just like the skill set, man,” McCown said. “I just like the skill set. I think he throws the ball well. His arm strength is obviously well above average. He can spin it, man. He can really spin it. He’s a hard worker. He loves football. You have to have that at that position. And he’s intelligent. And so those things, all those things, kind of encompass. It’s just a matter of time for him.”

How does Joe know McCown hasn’t seen Glennon play? “I’ve not watched any film from last year,” McCown said.

Center Of Attention

New Bucs center Evan Dietrich-Smith also a big Glennon fan and seems blown away by McCown. However, Dietrich-Smith didn’t see too high on Josh Freeman or Dan Orlovsky, Glennon’s 2013 mentors.

“Mike’s a great player.  You know, he’s got his head around it. I think he’s going to definitely gain from having Josh in front of him. You know Josh is a really good player, too. It’s kind of crazy to me the guy’s been in the league this long and, you know, hasn’t been able to get a chance as much as he has,” Dietrich-Smith said.

“But I think Mike will definitely learn form Josh how to be a pro. And I think that Mike probably didn’t have that last year, as somebody to look to what it takes to really be successful in this league. And I think that Josh is going to be able to show him that, and any other quarterback that gets to sit in that room with him. Because at the end of the day as a young player, if you don’t have somebody in front of you teaching you how to be a professional, or how this game’s played, or what you need to be seeing as a player, it’s really hard. It’s hard to develop. A coach can only take you so far.”

    It is truly frightening to think that Freeman was MG8′s mentor last year. You know he did not get anything from that idiot except how NOT to set an alarm.

  2. Buc1987 Says:

    And the clouds open up…and expose what the players, coaches, and GM really think about Glennon. I suppose it goes in one ear and out the other to some of the media types though. Still in disbelief of it all.

  3. Mort Says:

    Seems everyone is high on Glennon as of late.

    Except for the Joes, that is.

  4. Buc1987 Says:

    or is it denial?

  5. Architek Says:

    Great team building the correct way!

  6. stevek Says:

    Proud card carrying member of the MGM here.

    Also, the same guy who thought Tavon Austin would be drafted prior to Tyler Eirfert. Addittionally, I spoke out against picking MO Claibourne the year before that.

    I am thrilled with the direction of the Bucs.

    I am stoked to see the TRUTH BE TOLD, Glennon can play and he is our future.

    Sorry Joes, Big Dog, and others. But the truth hurts, and the truth is that Freeman blew it and Glennon has potential.

  7. Gusjackson Says:

    “How does Joe know McCown hasn’t seen Glennon play? “I’ve not watched any film from last year,” McCown said.”
    Lol I was wondering that too

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    Pound that chest stevek!

  9. INDYbucsfan Says:

    @joe will you post an article telling us how wrong you were in your assessment if glennon if he does in fact lead us to the Super Bowl?

    LOL. Joe suspects if Glennon has the Bucs in the playoffs, then Joe will have written plenty of stories that includes that — and would have many more to pen. Just one wouldn’t do it. –Joe

  10. Harry Says:

    SteveK, send that resume in to L&L! LOL

  11. Buc1987 Says:

    “I am stoked to see the TRUTH BE TOLD, Glennon can play and he is our future.”

    stevek…I’ll never forget that you said that. If it all becomes reality, there will be many more that will never let Joe forget it either.

    I won’t bug Joe too much about it though. I see him as quality back-up myself, but I always say the words…for now. I do that for a reason.

  12. MikeGlennonFans Says:

    Joe, Joe, Joe,
    when will you give it up…..it has gotten to the point were it is almost personal, b/c you have went so far against Glennon you now have a rooting interest in seeing him to fail

    Sir, please don’t invent stuff. How you could extrapolate such nonsense from this post is amusing. Joe would think Glennon fans would be pleased to hear all about how Glennon is evaluated by his peers. Joe never hesitates to share great things about Mike Glennon. Never has. Archives are here for all to read. –Joe

  13. lions Says:

    Are the UDFA’s in camp as well?

    Camp starts Friday, just a spring practice today. Joe can’t confirm who’s here beyond the draft picks mentioned in this post. –Joe

  14. Jim Says:

    Gee, a player must be out of the game for 5 years before he is eligible for HOF consideration. Glennon will retire next Feb after leading the Bucs to a
    SB win. You heard it here first!

  15. lightningbuc Says:

    Geez, now the Bucs even have the players in on the strategy of talking up Glennon to increase his trade value.

  16. bucrightoff Says:

    Where does Glennon fit in our basketball team? Token white 3 point shooter?

  17. Bill T Says:

    Harry:
    “It is truly frightening to think that Freeman was MG8′s mentor last year. You know he did not get anything from that idiot except how NOT to set an alarm.”

    Great point and exactly what I was thinking when I read that line from Dietrich-Smith. Couldn’t learn from Freeman if the guy wasn’t there. And after he was benched, he and his agent started the bad-mouthing of the Bucs right away….no way was Freeman guiding Glennon in week 4 and beyond

  18. L&L Buc Says:

    Joe, How can you say you do not dislike Glennon and continue to post unfaltering pictures of him with captions to further put him down? (remainder deleted: What’s unflattering here? Jiminy Christmas. –Joe

  19. mpmalloy Says:

    The fact that Malloy (3rd person) bought into Glennon
    early last year speaks volumes. Schiano is not much
    of a game-day coach but one hell of a talent scout.

  20. d-money Says:

    I love how the Bucs just let everyone speculate like crazy about Glennon before the draft and now that it’s over just about everyone in the orginization has come out and had his back.

    They played all the so called experts like a drum and now they are coming to his rescue after he got the crap kicked out of him in the local media for the last 5 months.

  21. biff barker Says:

    Agree Malloy. Schiano targeted Glennon and converted Wright to TE as well. Both of these moves will have a big impact on this franchise.

  22. AmbushBuc Says:

    I’m really liking McCown. He seems smart, insightful, dedicated, hard-working. All the things Freeman was not. Now, those won’t guarantee that he’ll be successful as a starter or mentor to Glennon, but having those qualities is more of an advantage than lacking them.

  23. MR.T Says:

    McCown is right to base his evaluation of Glennon on what he has seen personally this year. No doubt Glennon has improved in a number of areas since last year and people who keep basing their opinions of him on how he was last year are simply not being realistic. I’m really liking the way things are going so far regarding the team in general, maybe we have finallly found the coach and GM to take us to the post season on a regular basis and hopefully a SB, we’ll see.

  24. Couch Fan Says:

    May the best man win. Though, I want to see Glennon get the starting job just to see Joe’s articles and the comments from the AMGM pulling more excuses out of there @ss as to why Glennon is starting again.

  25. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I love the opinions flying back on forth on this site. Very entertaining.

    I think the MGM folks are being way to hard on Joe however. I’m not a member of the mob, but neither do I agree with Joe or the Big Dog about Glennon. He’s played ONE FREAKING YEAR on a horrid team with the worst example of leadership at QB in Sleepy Freeman in the entire NFL. He had only one receiver until Tim Wright emerged. He had a sieve for an offensive line.

    Are those excuses or valid extenuating circumstances? Eye of the beholder I guess.

    I’m not ready to say Glennon is the future, but I’m not with Joe in calling him a good career backup.

    What I don’t get is why folks think Joe is making this personal against Glennon. I suspect Joe actually likes Glennon personally and admires Glennon’s obvious smarts. He just doesn’t think he’s an NFL Q.B.

    I neither agree nor disagree with Joe on this other than to say I believe it’s premature to place any kind of grade on Glennon yet. Let’s see him with offensive weapons, a decent offensive line, and some experienced tutoring from McCown first.

  26. robert7 Says:

    this article shows the plan…..damn common sense.

    some bloggers and media types just don’t have it.

    enjoy the crow.

  27. MikeGlennonFans Says:

    It is sad but media has made Glennon a polarizing figure here in Tampa
    All this kid has done per all accounts is become a leader in the locker room while working his butt off
    But some people in the media don’t like him…why? Because he is thin, because they don’t think he is fast enough
    He was forced to play in a situation with 3rd string players and a awful coach.
    Lets let this kid learn and grow and see what he can do with a proper supporting team and stable coach.

  28. stevek Says:

    Can’t wait to hear Joes and the big dog discuss Glennon today.

    I hate hate hate when sour pup bullies fans asking about Glennon off the show.

    ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG ABOUT FREEMAN ALREADY!

  29. theDON Says:

    The bucs are in a way better situation than they have been in years QB wise. LEts get on board.

    Lovie has at least 5 years with the team, if needs to go out and get another QB at some point , he will. THe team can win with these guys.

    Plus, i am not too sure McCown cant have a better year than Cam Newton and Matty Ice. NOt saying he is #2 in our division, but he could put up better numbers than those guys this year. WE will see. Of course Brees will put up better numbers, but the good thing about him, he is getting older. His day in the sun is passing, and so is New ORleans,
    #Divisionupforgrabs

  30. Eric Says:

    Well it all sounds good but players used to say glowing things about Freeman also. Including some Bucs Hall of Famers.

    Nature of the beast.

    Mccown understands his role and wants to instill confidence.

    It’s all blah blah blah until MG leads a team to the playoffs, and wins in the playoffs. Then he can be considered a good NFL Quarterback.

    I’m betting no one can find a critical word from McCown on any team mate he’s ever played with.

    Fluff.

  31. Heath Says:

    How many teams would trade their current QB situation for the Bucs?

  32. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Nobody ever said Schiano wasn’t a good talent evaluator. Just that he’s a horrible NFL head coach.

    Now Dominik, on the other hand, has a drafted-player-retention record that’s truly embarrassing.

    And to think, myself and many other fans (and Joes) were fooled by the Robert Johnson like legend that Dominik sold his soul at the crossroads to become the greatest draft mover and shaker in modern memory and a legendary Rock Star.

    Boy, were we ever taken for a ride on that one.

  33. D-Rome Says:

    I don’t consider myself to be a card carrying member of the MGM but I honestly thought he had a good year last year as a rookie given the circumstances with coaching and personnel on the offensive side of the ball. Great QBs would had difficulty with that offensive line in front of them. Lovie talked about it being a process and if they feel he has the tools then who am I to argue?

  34. DallasBuc Says:

    The “Big Dog” is on the air for last hour and half trying to convince the listeners that he is right and Licht did not set him straight yesterday in that interview! Sounding a little petty and immature about the whole thing. Kinda sad.

  35. Adrian Says:

    Can’t wait to hear you on 620wdae joe!

  36. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    ^Yep, that is definitely sad. But sadly not unexpected, either.

  37. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Captain of the inactive list, Michael Smith, has been released.

  38. d-money Says:

    “How many teams would trade their current QB situation for the Bucs?”

    Well at the very least the 6 teams that attempted to trade for Glennon.

  39. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    D-Rome

    Agree. Somebody once posted stats of very famous NFL Q.B.’s first years.

    Glennon fares quite well in that comparison.

    Don’t know how good he can become. I only know expecting him to take that ball and chain known as the 2013 Bucs to the playoffs is truly absurd.

  40. Buc Fan #237 Says:

    How does Josh know that Glennon has a strong arm? He worked out right next to him before the doggone draft.

    You were even there too Joe.

    Holy crap… THAT’s how both Licht, Lovie and McCown know. They saw him!

  41. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    @Dallas Buc

    “Sounding a little petty and immature about the whole thing. Kinda sad.”

    That is Big Dog’s M.O. He has to have the thinnest skin in town. Seriously who has thinner skin than the Big Dog. Who fails to admit their errors.

    OK let’s add Jim Rome in the mix on that last one. Unless one of you clones sets me straight and admittedly I’m not a clone and only listen occasionally.

    Rome embarrassed himself when he continually made fun of Peyton Manning before the draft and swore that Cryin Ryan Leaf was far superior to Manning. He used to taunt Manning by using the last names of NFL busts as Manning’s first name. I have yet to hear Rome admit to the biggest blunder in sports observations in a long, long, long time. Yeah Rome Leaf worked out much better than Manning.

  42. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Maybe….just maybe….some coaching….mentoring….a competent scheme….some weapons….and just a little more time practicing….and a player can actually improve…..

    I think many people are down on Glennon because of the Schiano love….a bad taste from last year…and frankly…he doesn’t really look the part…..many joke about his “giraffe” like moves…etc.

    What I see is a rookie who has great potential and apparently….I’m not the only one.

  43. DallasBuc Says:

    This with the “Big Dog” is that he gets all fired up on the air with fighting words then when the time comes to back it up he falls on his face or doesn’t show up at all. Thinking of that dust up with Jay Mohr and TKras was forced to fight his battle for him. Now today he is fighting a fight that Licht already ended yesterday with a one two!
    Someone needs to tell the old man to hang it it up!

  44. Jeagan1999 Says:

    McCown will be a very good mentor for MG8 (unlike Freeman)! He is smart, professional and a hard worker! What remains to be seen is whether McCown can a lead a team for an entire season. I hope he does…that way the 2 QB’s will always be pushing each other to be better. HOWEVER based on McCown’s past, it’s really tough to believe that at 35 years old, he can be “the man” for 16 games, plus the playoffs (…hey, I can be optimistic can’t I?). If I were a betting man, my money would be on Glennon becoming the starter at some point in October or November…but I hope that Josh McCown plays well and stays healthy! That way if Glennon does take the job, it will be simply because he is the better QB and gives the Bucs the best chance to win! May the best QB win!!!!!!

  45. Eric Says:

    98% of all pro football quarterbacks look good in practice.

    Especially in shorts.

    It’s like going to the driving range at a PGA event, everyone looks spectacular.

    I’m behind the kid, but c’mon.

  46. Eric Says:

    I am no fan of BD but how can he be wrong until Manziel and Glennon play a few seasons?

    He may be right.

    He’s automatically wrong cause the Bucs didn’t draft JF?

    Lot of crowing going on over a demoted QB.

  47. Buc the Haters Says:

    I think Brett Smith will give Glennon a run for his money, although I do like Glennon… It kinda sounds like their wishing him farewell lol… I def think Brett Smith is more tailormade for our offensive system, though, and it will be difficult for Glennon to overcome that in the longrun if Smith hones his mechanics & polishes his overall game.

  48. seminolebuccaneer Says:

    If glennon could help sell cars or pimp pizza maybe that would help some of you like him more

  49. Schlomie Gentile-Schlep Says:

    The stuttering stammering show host is beside himself. Funny how he always vehemently defends himself the day after the Licht interview.

  50. Buc Fan #237 Says:

    Did Licht really say that my football intelligence is better than yours yesterday?

    That is a classic statement. Even though it is obviously a true statement, I find it funny that you he said that to that poor excuse for a radio host.

    Perfect response!

  51. Jon Says:

    I thought the Bucs had a very productive draft. I think we all good have made the first couple of picks. I am happy that we had a QB, RB, OT, FS, DC, LDE, MLB, WILL Backer and 3 Tech in place. That’s a great start to get to the hope with this class and the future.

  52. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Let the Best Man win.

  53. Bucfan#37 Says:

    I have liked Glennon from first seeing him play. I know it has been run into the ground that his supporting cast of players were lacking, yet that was evident and it played out evidenced by the overhaul of players. The Bucs management and players see that Glennon has enough potential to warrant further evaluation. I’m happy he is here with the Bucs for this upcoming season and expect him to exceed all expectations that his believers have in his abilities.

  54. TDG Says:

    My theory is that they think the QB class next year is better than this years. They get an extra year to evaluate Glennon and if they don’t like him they’ll get a guy next year.

  55. "Skyline" aka Bucsdraft Says:

    For those saying he win a SB this please slow down. He isn’t the starter yet. But playoffs would be nice.

  56. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Sounds to me like McCown is just being positive. How can he know how good Glennon is without ever having seen him play?

    Answer? He can’t.

    Chris Simms looked good until he got into live games as well.

    Maybe Glennon will become a HoFer down the road, but I think half the MGMers will turn onhim long before then. Simply put, Tampa fans only need a couple bad games to turn on players.

    As for myself, I’ll wait until Glennon earns my props.

  57. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    If I were Joe I’d be embarrassed to be associated with such thin skinned on-air personalities who are so insecure they have to try and elevate themselves above the professionals the day after, when they are no longer there to talk back. What freaking cowardice.

    To the Vice Principal of Tampa Bay sports radio: you are nothing but a blow hard wannabe sports analyst. Move to Jersey where you belong and let someone else more qualified sit in your worn-out seat in front of the mic. Your voice annoys me.

  58. Couch Fan Says:

    LMAO love it when the Lil Pooch looks like an idiot then has no choice but to hang up on his callers to not look worse.

  59. robert7 Says:

    I would much prefer them bust his balls while continues to make them look like idiots…

    then what happened before.

    you couldn’t, and still can’t, pry them from pretty boy jfro 6 pac Jackson’s jock. gobbling all they can while his ego goes to the moon. and when the rubber met the road…when true character is shown… he crawled into the fetal position in denial and threw everyone else under the bus!

    damn. is free a writer for jbf?

  60. Theodore Says:

    Why do I cringe every time someone refers to McCown as “Josh”?

  61. sam Says:

    HAHA I for one love the caption on that pic, even though I don’t think glennon has the mobility that lovie wanted at the position, he makes up for with high character and a great work ethic on top of having good enough of an arm too overlook all of his shortcomings. Glennon can be a top 10 quarterback, IF he has a great supporting cast.

  62. pick6 Says:

    pre-draft: everyone be vague and misleading
    post-draft: hype up the talent of everyone associated with your roster
    training camp: rave about the depth and assert that you’ve never been part of a more competitive training camp
    pre-season: give away nothing scheme-wise, stay healthy
    opening day: FINALLY put the hype and misdirection to the side and let everyone’s play do the talking

    can’t wait till september

  63. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    Still hoping Joe uses that picture with “Lovie sees greatness in you too my son”. Maybe if he wins the starting QB spot during preseason like I believe he will?

  64. Couch Fan Says:

    Joe just hates when you compare Glennon to any legend but yet has no issues comparing Manziel to Tarkenton and other legends. This is why the MGM is giving Joe hell since the draft. The hate (that he denies) is clearly obvious and 2 faced.

    Don’t be ridiculous. –Joe

  65. JBuc Says:

    Was just listening to joe on you know who’s show and I have now officially heard everything and am now dumber for it. he just said that Geno Smih had a better year than Glennon. I had to check this out. Geno’s stat line is: 12 TD’s, 21 INTs, 56%, and 66 QB Rating. I need to start smoking what you guys are smoking.

    I am not a Glennon mob member. However, I trust Lovie and Licht all day every day over a few talking heads. They see him play in practice and are with him in meetings. None of us are. sneers pretty simple to me.

    Smith won eight games and a higher ranked offense, in addition to other things. Don’t just be a stats guy. –Joe

  66. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    WTF???!!! Geno Smith had a better year than Glennon? No wonder the Parent Teacher Association Head of Tampa Bay sports radio lacks credibility. Are you serious??? LOL!!!

  67. SteveK Says:

    Mike Glennon has a cannon.

    Joes and Dog are going to be lapping up crow, just like I did about GMC.

  68. Nick H Says:

    Yikes, that’s quite outlandish. Giving Geno credit for something his 10 other teammates fought for.

  69. SteveK Says:

    Glennon is the answer, in a year or two.

    Why is it so hard to believe Glennon could be the guy?

  70. Nick H Says:

    “Smith won eight games”

    So where’s the rest of the team?

  71. Couch Fan Says:

    Don’t be ridiculous. –Joe

    ———————————-

    What is ridiculous? You have repeatedly attempted to shut anyone down who compares Glennon to a legend. But you have routinely compared Manziel to Tarkenton… is that a ridiculous lie? I think.

    Hit the archives. –Joe

  72. SteveK Says:

    Joe,

    Out 1st round pick from 2013 is the reason the Jets won 8 games: see Sheldon Richardson.

  73. Couch Fan Says:

    not*

  74. SteveK Says:

    We will see what MG8 is made of, we shall see.

    As Bart Scott says, “CAN’T WAIT!”

  75. robert7 Says:

    the jets D may have kept their O on the field bit more. and no I don’t need to check the stats.

    comical to say things in jest. but I think some of these guys believe themselves. troll on..

  76. Couch Fan Says:

    Did Freeman have a cannon in his rookie year? I dont remember him having very many deep balls either… but aye, I’m just a couch fan. I’ll defer to the expert radio personalities.

  77. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I can’t help but think that Joe is being sarcastic when he brings up the “cannon” with Glennon…He will say that he’s simply reporting what someone else said…but….it seems insincere to me.

  78. NY Buc Says:

    Compare Jets and Buccaneers strength of schedule, that may have more to do with the Jets 8 wins and better ranked offense than anything Gino Smith did. The Jets faced the Saints and Panthers once…Bucs had to deal with them twice, let alone the fact that the Bucs had to face the Seahawks, 49′ers, Cardinals, and Rams defenses. I just don’t see how a serious argument can be made that Gino Smith had a better year than Glennon?

  79. Couch Fan Says:

    There is no argument to be made other than when one dislikes Glennon, they have to reach to find a reason to dislike him.

  80. biff barker Says:

    I wouldn’t exactly describe Glennon’s arm as a cannon. It’s strong enough but guys like Elway and Farve had cannons.

  81. Sweets Willie Says:

    Super Bowls, Hall of Fame!! SI Cover, Parade at Disney world!! The Bucs are Back!! MGM is in a frenzy!!

  82. GlenninGrad Says:

    And Mike chewed up Seattle until NSO play calling once again ruined a spectacular performance.

  83. Bobby M. Says:

    Let the waffling begin…..along with the chuckles.

  84. SteveK Says:

    Mike “cannon” Glennon has an opportunity to develop into a franchise QB.

    Hahaha at the MG-H8 gang. (Aka Freemanites)

  85. JBuc Says:

    Smith won eight games and a higher ranked offense, in addition to other things. Don’t just be a stats guy. –Joe

    Joe, you do realize it’s a team game? Is Geno better than Matt Ryan?

  86. joe$sucsfan Says:

    It was quite a circle jerk between you guys and the Dog today. Sure was a lot of self serving agreement between you three. The more you try to sound like you are so right about MG And JM the more you loose credibility. Your continuing argument about “last offense in the league” although true needs a lot more scrutiny to be able make an informed decision as to why it was. I suggest that if MG would not have played as he did with the horrible coaching and cast members it would have been a lot worse. Not advocating MG is the future but you can’t be sure either. Still, it is fun to listen to your vitriol and hissy fit over MG.

  87. "Skyline" aka Bucsdraft Says:

    Breaking news (not really) JF has been named the starting backup for the Browns. Hoyer is the starter. No surprise there, but of course sports world is all over it.

  88. JBuc Says:

    Wow, that is breaking news. Using Joe’s logic, they must of seen something on film that told them he was not good enough to start.

  89. Ghost Says:

    What a load of BS

  90. Warthog Says:

    Here’s a thought experiment for ya Joe: put Geno on the Bucs offense last year, put Glennon on the Jets. What happens?

  94. Buc the Haters Says:

    I think Brett Smith will be our QB in 2-3 years, but I could be wrong.

  95. Buc the Haters Says:

    And we won’t be drafting a QB next year either….. Watch. Winston’s not coming out til 2016 anyway. We have 2 years to evaluate our current guys. And I think our QB for the next 2-3 years will be McCown. He’s the most polished & athletic guy we have right now.

  96. Pelbuc Says:

    JBF, don’t advertise your weekly show with Duimig on your website or simply rename it the Glennon Bashing Hour. After the draft, I thought you and Mr personality aka Freeman lover would talk about the new draftees. Instead , I listened to the same old Glennon bashing for 30 minutes before I tuned out. Neither you nor Duimig know more than the average fan although you guys think you do. Pathetic!

    Pretty sure all the draft picks were discussed. It is an hour show. –Joe

  97. J 2.0 Says:

    Geno Smith better than Glennon is embarassing Joe’s.

    Also the guys clamoring for Brett Smith to start in a few years must have intellectual disabilities. Seriously the hate for Glennon astounds me. People would rather have a 34 year old journeyman or a QB from Wyoming than admit Glennon is a good QB. It is not just the Freeman guys either. I was part of the JFM Josh Freeman Mob. That was until the New England game this past year. Then I became a member of the Mike Glennon Mob.

  98. That Guy Says:

    And you continue to fabricate and misrepresent Joe. –Joe.

  99. Brandon Says:

    Hey, I’m definitely no Mike Glennon fan, but if he takes us to the playoffs and shows the potential to be a real player for years to come, I’m all for it. I’d rather have a winning team than be right.

    In reference to the talk that Lovie is a 2 QB guy… I said it wasn’t so, then people point to McCown getting cut to prove so…. but that’s not the truth. The truth is:

    In 2011, Jay Cutler started 10 games, Caleb Hanie started 4, and McCown started 2… how many QBs is that that started games? 3

    In 2010, only Cutler and Todd Collins started games, but in the playoffs, if you remember, Cutler had his infamous “injury” and then Collins was benched for injury/ineffectiveness, and Caleb Hanie came in the game…. that’s 3 QBs

    In 2007, Brian Griese started 6 games, Rex Grossman started 7, and Kyle Orton started 3… that’s 3 QBs again.

    In 2005, Orton started 15 games, Grossman 1, and old Jeff Blake managed to get into 3 games.

    In 2004, Chad Hutchinson started 5 games, Craig Krenzel started 5 as well, and both Johnathan Quinn and Rex Grossman each started 3 games. That’s 4 QBs!!!

    Now, if you notice the names on the list, none of them were even eligible for the practice squad at the time they played for the Bears… so basically, they were on the Bears roster all season. So that means that in 5 of Lovie’s seasons in Chicago, more than 2 QBs started games. Again, Lovie Smith IS NOT a 2 QB guy… I don’t know why he wants us to think he is…but he isn’t,

    QB from Wyoming? Is that supposed to be your in-depth scouting report of why Brett Smith will fail? Wow, what great wisdom. If only scouts had followed your examples and not bothering drafting QBs from notable QB and prospect waste lands like Southern Miss (Favre), Miami of Ohio (Roethlisberger), Northern Iowa (Kurt Warner), Alcorn St. (Steve McNair), Delaware (Joe Flacco), Portland St. (Dan Fouts), Grambling (Doug Williams), and so on and so on…. your scouting report is worthless.

    Wow, talk about a troll on the MG H8 club. You mention what? 8 QBs that succeeded from small schools over the course of 35 years and then proceed to offer up nothing to say why Brett Smith (who will likely not make the team) will succeed in the NFL. You have a bad case of the “Anyone but Glennon” disease. and so on and so on. Your scouting report is worthless.

    Brett Smith led the Wonderful Wyoming football squad to a record of 5-7. He completed 62% of his passes for 3375 yards with 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in THE MOUNTAIN WEST CONFERENCE! He is allegedly 6’3 and 205 lbs.

    He completed 52% of his passes for 292 yards with 1 td and 1 int in a loss to Texas State.

    He completed 58% of his passes for 246 yards with 1 td and 2 ints in a loss to Colorado State.

    He completed 56% of his passes for 141 yards with 1 td and 1 int in a loss to Fresno State.

    He completed 69% of his passes for 207 yards with 1 td and 2 ints in a loss to Boise State.

    He completed 55% of his passes for 162 yards with 1 td and 1 int in a loss to Utah State.

    Not seeing this as proof he will succeed in the NFL, even though you named off 8 out of thousands of QBs that actually made contributions in the NFL. But those 8 QBs make for one hell of a scouting report.

  106. Frank Says:

    All four of our QB’s are career backups or undrafted hopefuls. You would think that the Bucs Coaching staff would of brought in a bunch of QB’s to take a look. McCown = Career Backup and never played an NFL season. Opie – Mr Checkdown and ball up when pressure came. Kafka = Career Backup and no offense to Smith, but he will not help us win a game this year either. They go out and sign Free Agents to impact every area except QB and ignore one of the deepest drafts at QB in a while. It would of been nice to see them trade up after the Mike Evans pick and Grab Johnny Football. Instead, we will be competitive 7-9, 8-8, 9-7 season. Yawn.

    Frank… things are going to take time. Seattle was not built in one season. Neither were the Bucs during their good years. It’s going to take time in this “win now” league regardless what everyone thinks.

    “7-9, 8-8, 9-7 season.”

    We’re you expecting more? If so why? Manziel will be riding the pine in Cleveland for much of this season I believe.

    I’m not an MGMer and I’d take Glennon over Manziel every day of the week and twice on Sunday’s. Like I’ve said before Johnny is a dead man walking with his 4.69 speed. NFL LB’s are going to kill this little kid.

    Meanwhile Glennon can only improve after the sh**storm he was thrown into last season.

    Glennon might be throwing TD’s while Manziel sits on IR.

  109. Buc1987 Says:

    As a matter of fact ( and I know I’m typing to myself right now) I’m going on record right freaking now. Manziel is going to be an NFL bust. I’m putting that out on the table right now. Why? Because I am an I told you so type of guy.

    Glennon is the Bucs future. I’m ok with it. A few years ago this guy would have been a 1st round draft pick as a pure pocket passer. Now everyone wants a mobile quarterback because it’s a copy cat league. Maybe this will be the start of the offense teams will want to copy cat in the future. Just like when we started the Tampa Two defense. Go Bucs!

  113. Frank Says:

    Every QB has to be put in a position to help him be successful. Gameplan, Talent around him, Offensive Line, Coaching….but certain players have it or they dont. We have seen them. Brady, Elway, Montana. They thrive in a critical situation. Hell, Tebow has it too. And if Dilfer is right from what I saw on the ESPN spot they did, I would take a look at him too. I do not see IT in any of our current QB’s and I was not happy we did not pick anyone. I know it takes time…..but we have only had 10 good seasons in the history of this franchise. Its getting old not having a FRANCHISE QB.

    StPeteBucsFan….but can they admit when they are wrong? Fine to be friends with Freeman and all. Fine you don’t want to bash the guy because you’re friends, but there is a way of admitting that you were wrong without bashing your friend.

    I really don’t know what he says or does on the radio anymore. To tell you the truth I never listened to the guy before I found JBF. He so famous I’ve lived in the Tampa Bay area for nearly 20 years (off and on) but I’ve never heard of him until JBF and that was less than a year ago.

    I started listening to the Joe Bucs Fan shows, because I like the Joe’s a lot and Joe posted it on site for us to listen to. I loved the first few shows. I liked the Joe’s takes on things. Then Little Puppy started to annoy me. I couldn’t at first put my finger on what it was precisely that I didn’t like about him.

    Then I think I figured it out. He WANTS to see the Bucs play bad. He lives for it. He thrives off of harsh criticism of the team that I love. He snickers and laughs at my team. He lives for it. Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s how he rubbed me. @Joe if you read this tell me if I’m off base. I’ve never listened to the Little Puppy when the Bucs were on a roll and winning.

    Every once and while I click on the Joe’s when Joe posts it on site, and I still get that vibe about the guy and click off. Not that what he’s doing is wrong obviously if he’s called the Big whatever, he’s doing something right and getting paid to do it.

    Others have complained about different things when it comes to the guy so maybe I’m not off base.

  116. Mr Magoo Says:

    San Diego couldnt see that they had a HOF QB in Drew Breeze after he played 4 years for them. None of the NFL could see that Joe Montana was better than a 3rd round pick or Tom Brady a 6th. These are pro’s who spend all their time studying players, so nobody can know at this point how MG will turn out. I wanted the Bucs to draft JM but I didnt want them to trade MG just in case he developed into the player some people envision he could become. We could have done that if Smith and the GM didnt have to cover up their mistake releasing Mike Williams. They made a mistake trading Zutah too. So this is 3 serious mistakes they’ve made. I like MG and think he will develop, now it seems that the Bucs do too. Lets hope that is the end of their serious mistakes.

    Enjoy reading your posts very much. But some of them remind me of one of my favorite skits on the “Man Show”. If you’ve never seen the show, they(Adam Corolla and Jimmy Kimmel) would sometimes send a fat Boy Scout out to do stupid things. On one show, he would help “old ladies” cross the street in order to win his merit badge. One “not so old lady” pulled her arm away, and said “I’m not old”, to which he replied “Face it lady, you’re old! You’re so old I should get two merit badges for you.”

    So I hope you take this in the best possible way: Face it Buc1987. You’re an MGM’er! Just like me.

    ———————————————————————————-
    Completely agree! Time to re-post my bet:

    I am willing to bet that regardless of which team he plays for, that Johnny Manziel, or any of the other rookie QBs, will not beat the rookie year stats of Mike Glennon. And I fully admit that I have never seem JM or the others play, as I never watch college football.
    Specifically: 3 separate bets.
    1) his QBR (minimum of 300 attempts) will be less than 83.9 for 2014.
    2) his TD total will be less than 19 for his first thirteen games.
    3) his TD/INT ratio will be less than 19/9 .
    If he doesn’t play = I win the bet.

    My reasons for the bets only have to do with historical statistics. Over the last twenty years:
    Only 7 of 51 QB’s drafted in the FIRST round have had a QBR > 83.9 in their rookie years. Only 3 of 51 have thrown for as many as 19 TDs in their ROOKIE season.
    And only 1 of 51 has had a TD/INT ratio > MG8′s 19/9!
    I would be ahead on the bet even if we’re discussing the last consensus “franchise” QB, i.e. Andrew Luck. He did throw for 23 TDs over his 16 game rookie season, but also had 18 INT’s, while posting a rookie QB rating of 76.5. So he fails to win two of the three bets vs. MG8′s stats.

    Of all of those 51 QB’s chosen in the first round, to my knowledge the only QB drafted in the first round who would win all three of those bets is RG III during his rookie season. (QBR 102.4, 20 TDs, and only 5 INTs).
    Of note, Russell Wilson did it as well during his rookie campaign (QBR 100.0, 26 TDs, and 10 INTs), but of course we all know he was only a lowly third round pick. Just a thought, perhaps the head coach or QB coach at NC State is the true QB guru.

    Buc1987,

    I started listening tk am sports talk around 1999. Sometime before I started listening to am sports talk, the little puppy went on the record that he had heard from a very credible source that the bucs were going to be sold. There was a young radio host on another am sports station by the name T.J. Rives who I don’t think liked the little puppy, would open his show with a count of how many days it had been since the little puppies proclamation that the sale was a done deal. The little puppy would get so angry when one of TJ’s listeners would ask him how many days it had been.

    If you want to hear the little puppy go ballistic, just ask him about his prediction. Then sit back and ROTFFLYAO.

  121. Buc1987 Says:

    tickrdr ..thanks for the kind words. If being an MGMer means you’re rooting for the kid then I’m guilty. Though I probably would not root for the kid much if so many were not against him. No sir I’m partial when it comes to the kid. I know what he was dealing with last season and was not expecting much when he came in. We didn’t get much did we? No flash, no pizazz, just trying to learn and adjust to the NFL.

    I had season tickets for the first time in my life last season. Despite the losses I enjoyed watching the rookie play over Freeman.

    I’m a really true blue die hard everything is Bucs type of fan. I too have waited, waited and waited for a true “franchise QB” to come along. I’ve longed for it. So I can see why everyone saw this draft stocked with QB’s and went nuts about wanting a new one. Again no flash, no pizazz from Glennon, so let’s go get a new one in a draft stocked with them.

    If being an MGMer is thinking he is ready to start right now in the NFL and shine. Then that’s not me. If being an MGMer again means you’re rooting for the kid, I’m guilty.

    I just want my Bucs to win period. I don’t care about leading the 32nd ranked offense and all that BS and it is BS. I don’t care about the 4th best QB in the division, because I think that’s BS too. Not the part that we do have the 4th best, but the part that the Bucs can’t win the division with the 4th best QB in the South. That’s opinion speak and I don’t believe it.

    Yet I love the Joe’s, strange I know. It’s the ONLY Bucs site I go to. No lie. Occasionally late at night I’ll surf around and look at what other Buc sites have to say if I’m really bored. Like tonight. lol

  122. Buc1987 Says:

    rdbucfan…lol that’s funny stuff. Now I have heard of T.J. Rives before. I’ve listened to him before so I know him.

    Am I wrong or does it seem like the little puppy lives to bash the Bucs?

  123. Buc1987 Says:

    lol I know I must look like a nut job for all the posts I make on this site, let alone the stuff that I type. It does not make me a bigger fan than anyone else on this site. BUT seeing how it’s obvious to some people that I’m such a huge Bucs fan. Can you imagine what it was like for someone like me when I got a phone call from my 1st cousin telling me that he signed with the Bucs as a longsnapper during their SB season? Then he sticks with the team and gets a ring. Euphoria!

    I’m also not saying he isn’t or won’t be as good. It’s up to him to prove it one way or another.

    And McCown has had 11 years to prove what he is. Nothing will change there. The day maycome when MGMers are claiming McCown messed up Glennon. But next years excuse is the oline. Already prepared.

    He is from Philly, we beat them in the NFC championship game. Of course he hates the bucs. I laughed when he said he would go to all of the bucs games if they picked Manziel. He didn’t say he’d buy tickets.

    It was actually 2001 when he guaranteed Debartolo would purchase the bucs. He even dared to say he would sue Ed Glazer if he called him a liar.

    TJ works for the bucs now. He does the coaches show, because Gruden hated the little puppy and Beckles.

To me at times it seems like little puppy is writing some of the Joe’s articles on the site. I’m not saying that’s so and it is actually happening. I’m saying you make a good point about the similarities.

    I hope they don’t go down that road, because mark my words right now. They will be doomed. That’s just an opinion Joe, so I don’t need to read the same old tired lines. “Joe writes what he wants to write on his site” or The hits keep coming so all is fine right now type of thingy.

    Brees blew out his shoulder which required surgery. The Chargers, spooked about what looked to be a career-ending injury, bailed.

    Joe sees your point about Montana and Brady. So are you comfortable elevated Greg Schiano’s talent evaluation in Glennon to the level of Bill Walsh and Bill Belicheat?

    As Joe has stated many times, Joe is comfortable with Glennon as a backup. Nothing that he showed last year suggests he can put this team on his shoulders if needed and carry them to a Super Bowl.

    1) Big Dog talk. Steve likes Freeman. So do I. Doesn’t mean I won’t support Glennon or McCown when the season starts, but until then? They have a lot to prove.
    ——————————————————————————–
    After year 2, I too thought that Freeman’s ceiling was so high, that I would not have traded him for any other young QB in the league! But that was then. The final straw for me was the season opener, when he couldn’t even audible a single play to prevent taking back-to-back delay of game penalties against the Jets. I had heard the rumors, but something caused him to totally regress from his early seasons.

    2) I’m not convinced McCown is better than Glennon. And I’m not convinced Glennon is or will be better than Newton, Ryan or Brees.
    ———————————————————————————–

    Neither am I, and that is why I think that Glennon will supplant McCown as the starter, possibly even before the start of the regular season.

    Question for you:
    Did you watch the Glennon highlights youtube video linked in the Glennon “Cannon” thread? Many folks diss his mobility as being a “statue”, and ask for a single instance where MG8 avoided a sack. Please count how many plays in that video were extended by Glennon, and how often that resulted in a TD throw. In retrospect, even I was surprised. Maybe you will be too?

I know first-hand what offensive suckitude looks like. (Is there such a word?)
    I, too am a lunatic at the games, and try to holler from the moment the QB steps to the line, till the offensive center snaps the ball (12th man doncha know).
    I am lucky enough to be in the East club seats Sect 234 AA 3-4 which are unbelievable for three reasons:
    1) only 4 or 5 rows to inside where the little boys room is immediately to the left, and
    2) The Crow’s Nest snack bar is immediately to the right. I can get to the restroom at the two minute warning to drain a rented beer, and get a fresh one next door, and back to my seats, all before the next play is run.
    3) Best of all, our seats are under the overhang of the skyboxes above, so we never get wet if it rains, and are usually in the shade till fairly late in the game.

    Nevertheless, I often wish I were sitting next to someone like you as many of the folks around me are either inside watching the game on TV (why in hell would you pay all that money to be AT the game, and then watch on TV???), or sitting on their hands hardly cheering,(trying to avoid getting a sunburn on their hands?), or worse yet spending the whole game texting on their phone?
    smh

    you ask what was demeaning about the photo at the top of this thread? Are you that blind, or think that we are that stupid? First of all the caption puts Glennon down by suggesting he is a dumb guy that needs to be taught the game. How does your IQ compare to his? Have you ever written a positive article about how smart he is (Check his gpa)

    Search the archives. Joe was actually first to dive in deep with Glennon about his Master’s degree in short time at NC State. And Joe has written many positive things about Glennon. –Joe

    This position that you show him in , kneeling in front of another man is unflattering to say the least.

    Don’t be ridiculous. It’s a football field. Coaches on all levels come to chat with players while they’re stretching and loosening up before a game. –Joe

    How many times have you printed it? I am sorry you were offended in my earlier post when I think I said you can dish it out but you cant take it. I just know that if I was a member of the local pen and mike club (what you call your group-who almost all does not like Glennon or want him on this team), I would really be ashamed to take the Glazers hospitality with free entrance to games, free food and drinks, and other perks along the way.

    Perks? Joe works at games. It’s far more enjoyable to buy a ticket following a drunken tailgate. –Joe

    I just don’t understand how a real Buc fan can say, If Glennon is the quarterback, I’ll root for him at the game but will not root for him between games..Yes it’s in the archives. When I first started visiting your site, I found you objective and fair with your evaluations but since you changed radio stations, your opinions have become jaded to this observer.

    Very simple. Joe cheered for Tiquan Underwood but hoped beyond hope the Bucs would find better. Joe cheered for Bruce Gradkowski but couldn’t wait to learn who the new Bucs quarterback would be. Joe loved Jeff Garcia, but had his fingers crossed the oh-so-close deal with Brett Favre would have gone through. Joe cheered for serial loafer Sean Jones but knew he’d be out of football soon and needed to be far away from the Bucs. It’s not a tough concept — wanting better for your team. Joe cheered for the Devil Rays in the early years but couldn’t wait for a heaven to answer the prayers of Rays fans and gut the roster. –Joe

    “Sounding a little petty and immature about the whole thing. Kinda sad.”

    That is Big Dog’s M.O. He has to have the thinnest skin in town. Seriously who has thinner skin than the Big Dog. Who fails to admit their errors.
