Not saying he’s a Franchise QB because we won’t know… Can’t Know until he Plays Real Games (no one knew Brady would be either… and No, Not saying he’s Brady) but I DO like how he’s not afraid to throw it in there & take a Hit. Dude has an Arm & is pretty Accurate. If we can get him some time in the Pocket, he might just exceed our Expectations. Extremely Hopeful. GO BUCS!!!
You should probably understand that if Jon Gruden is being nice to you, you probably NOT be in the room with Jon Gruden – if he isn’t criticizing you, it means he doesn’t have the heart to knock you.
To play the pure pocket passer behind this line – he should have been drinking milkshakes and eating steaks every day since he got to Tampa Bay – and right about now – they should be handing him tapes of Brad “the bull” Johnson’s Super Bowl season.
They’re going to snap this kid in HALF before seasons end – this guy just ain’t ready on SO many levels…
For all the praise of his top 5 throws…I wonder why he was so i-n-c-o-n-s-i-s-t-e-n-t in his ONLY starting season at NC State?
Like I said, he will stand in there take the hit and still complete an accurate pass. That is the biggest difference I see between him and freeman. 1 thing that did concern me watching him in college was that when the game was on the line for whatever reason he did not come through. I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt first though.
Another story on Glennon back in May. It’s goes pretty in depth about Glennon. It’s a very good read if anyone wants to learn more about him. I won’t link it, because I don’t want Joe to get upset with me. Just google the words Glennon is Matt Ryan. It’s at the top of the search page. I read it last night.
Do you think Gruden might be laughing now after being paid in full by The Bucs to do shows like this? I know I’d be enjoying the shat-show if I were him. Kinda miss him now like the Bear Fans miss Ditka….
Glennons strengths are Freeman’s weakneses and vice versa. The O-line has struggled in pass protection at times this season. They’ll have to step up their game to give Glennon time. He won’t be creating plays with his legs.
I don’t know how well he’ll do. Obviously, I’m rooting for him as I’m a Bucs fan. And, I was just ready to move forward after such a long winding roller coaster ride.
BUT, now that I see so many people openly saying he’ll bomb, and that we will be drafting someone else, after I watched them support Freeman for year after year. And they won’t give this guy ONE SINGLE GAME? Now, I’m really rooting for him. One, because it means TB is winning, and TWO, because I want those hypocrite fans to eat massive crow.
Oil Derrick Brooks,
I do find it troubling how some fans have such a double standard such as this…. For years saying give JF 1 more chance, 1 more game, 1 more season as he just KEPT disappointing and NOW they can’t
FAN-UP and give MG 1 game….
JF IS DONE! ~ Old news
MG is the Bucs QB now and the Bucs fans will give him his chance!
For the people that think Schiano is on the hot seat…think about it like the Glazers.
“Greg, the culture here is a mess. You have to fix it.”
“Greg. the defense is a joke. We need to get back to our old defensive standards.”
“Greg, we need some offensive production to go with our defense. We have seen enough of Josh Freeman to know that we won’t be renewing his contract. It’s OK for a QB change and let’s see what we have in Mike Glennon”
“Throw the receiver open” is something I was glad to hear him say. If you look up highlights of this guy (for those of you who didn’t see him play for the two years he started at NCSt) you’ll notice that he does exactly that. He was coached by the same coach as Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson, and I like that his first thought is an accurate, catchable pass. I’m sure the receivers here will be happy that he isn’t just throwing it anywhere within an 8-foot box around the receivers and hoping for an amazing catch.
Honestly… Do we REALLY Know what’s going on within the walls of OBP? I mean, with Today’s Media & how Patience is No Longer Practiced with the Fan Base any longer, it makes You Wonder if “The Internal Drama” really exists or just some Major Speculation on the part of the Media just because they’re not getting much details from “Coach”.
If you listen to the 2 Major Radio Stations that cover the Team… It seems to me that One Station covers One Angle of all the Alleged Controversy & the Other Station covers the Other Angle hoping to cash in on the Crowd that will respond to Their Angle of the Story.
The Bottom Line is, Greg Schiano is the HC & He has been Tasked for putting the Best 45 or so Players on the Field Regardless of what We or the Media Thinks. I may not Agree with Everything He has Done but I am a Bucs Fan & I will Cheer on My Team regardless.
So come on Bucs Fans, Let’s Give Glennon a chance! Go Bucs!!!
Will the real bucks fans please stand up . the real fans will allow the players to be players and stop thinking you know every f$&%king thing . they are where they are because they might be just all a little good . (JUST A LITTLE) . SO STOP BEING HATERS and stand by your team . nobody wants to see losers but if you can change it put in the in the required work . until then shut your f#$%in& mouth and support your team . GO BUCS GO BUCS.
the problem 1neb, is that we have “fans” who hate on other fans that stood behind their last starter, and after that starter was replaced, these “fans” continue to stir up beef with those other fans who now support the new starter… kind of petty isnt it??
Furniture Fan, even GMC admitted that his defense should have closed those games! Should I take a couch potatoes assessment? or should I take the word of a man that was on the front lines of those battles????
If the offense had scored on the NUMEROUS occassions the defense did its job and handed the ball back to the offense throughout the entirety of those two games those 2 last drives would have not even mattered.
That’s the TRUTH
McCoy is a professional and professionals always look at them self first and will not cast blame on others.
At the end of the day I don’t care who’s our qb but if they say Mike Glenn is our qb or one of you I riding.so there is always room when its bad but we will also save room for you haters when we kick some A%% starting this week …GO BUCS GO BUCS . just remember , there areca lot of great qb’s that don’t go in the first round . so stop worrying about the small things that can be fixed and just worry does he have the thing to fix them . ( HEART , DETERMINATION, DRIVE ) that’s how you measure a player …GO BUCS . SEE YOU GUYS SUNDAY
Couch and PR, you types are whats holding civilization back. Just your elementary school mentality. And there are plenty of intellectual and rational thinking readers who most likely shake their heads when they come across your posts. You guys are like the ‘deliverance duo’. Couch tries to make dudes squeal like a pig, while PR stands there chuckling. You guys were made for each other.
Good luck Mike!!!!! I will be cheering for you. I know there will be picks, sacks, fumbles, mistakes, etc., and you will learn from those. As a Bucs fan I am not expecting perfection, you are a rookie and we will see rookie play, just as we have seen from your fellow rookies (i.e. Banks).
The opposing defenses will be messing with your inexperience, but if you can hang in there with your big arm, intelligence, willingness to take a hit and stand tall in the pocket, you will be fine and can perhaps take advantage of the opposing teams attempt to mess with you.
Your all we have right now Mike, your our towns hope for something new, exciting, entertaining.
I support you Mike, go out there and help us get this first win of the season. GO GET EM MIKE!!!!!!!!!!
A quick look at his highlight reel (I think it’s the first result under a google search for “Mike Glennon Highlights”) reveals clip after clip of a guy standing in a massive pocket for long enough that almost every other throw has the announcers saying “Glennon’s got plenty of time”
The NFL doesn’t have the degree of disparity in competition that the college game does.
The fact that Freeman remains the number 2 is mind bending.
I predict Glennon’s Napoleon Dynamite physique takes an injury, and Freeman finishes the season looking like “good Josh”, then refusing Dominik’s sheepish offers to re-sign with the Bucs when the season is done.
sad that he has to come into this mess. the guy got his masters degree in 4 years he is smart works hard and has an above average arm. i havent seen enough to see how he processes the pro game. i guess we will all see it together. still say bus will never be above 500 with current gm.
