Glennon Starts With A Bang, Scoring DriveAugust 8th, 2013
The final play of the first quarter was the first of quarterback Mike Glennon’s career. Glennon scrambled under pressure and fired a strike to Tom Crabtree, who scampered 61 yards.
It was all smiles on the Bucs sidelines among the Bucs’ quarterbacks. Glennon and Josh Freeman fist-bumped.
Glennon came back after the second-quarter whistle and hit Chris Owusu on an intermediate route.
But it got tougher quickly, rookie running back Mike James got blown up in pass blocking and Glennon’s arm was hit. The refs ruled it a fumble but it was overturned — incomplete pass. Soon after, Glennon very slightly underthrew Owusu at the seven yard line.
Field goal, Buccaneers, a 77-yard scoring drive in eight plays.
The rookie looked calm and cool. He looked like an NFL quarterback. Joe will give him that.
