Very Sour On Mike GlennonJune 14th, 2013
Veteran Tampa Bay Times beat writer Rick Stroud – using a variety of voices/impressions – went off on rookie quarterback Mike Glennon during his Sports Page radio show on WDAE-AM 620 yesterday.
Stroud documented Glennon’s lousy day on Wednesday, including the fumbled snap that drew Greg Schiano’s ire, and Stroud talked about how down he his on the Bucs’ third-round pick.
“It’s a joke to think that this guy’s going to compete with anybody this year,” Stroud said. “Maybe at some point he becomes your No. 2, but I would think that if something happens Week 1, that Dan Orlovsky better be the guy in the game.”
Yes, Stroud’s being a little harsh, especially considering Glennon might look a lot better during live August action, and, you know, after he’s had more than seven weeks with the playbook.
But Glennon’s lack of readiness is no big surprise. This week, Joe asked rockstar general manager Mark Dominik about carrying three QBs this season, and Dominik was very clear the Bucs are “leaning” in that direction. (You can catch Stroud’s complete audio below.)
