“Mike Glennon Can’t Win The Game For Us”October 12th, 2013
It seems Mike Glennon has only proven his value to Greg Schiano and Bucs coaches. Joe’s been looking around all week for an analyst who’s excited about Glennon and what he can do in the Bucs offense. Joe’s still looking.
Yesterday, former Bucs tight end and radio pre- and post-game host Anthony Becht emphasized on ESPN Radio South Jersey that the Bucs’ offensive line must find a way to open holes for Doug Martin to keep Glennon out of must-produce situations.
“He’s obviously a rookie, so you’re prone to mistakes. He played three quarters of mistake-free football [against Arizona], didn’t, you know, catch the world on fire. At the end of the game they decided to put the ball in his hands and have him win it, which I thought was a bad choice and he ended up throwing two interceptions,” Becht said.
“He’s a kid that can make all the throws. He’ll beat you down the field. We have some big-play receivers, Vincent Jackson being one of them … At the end of the day they’re going to try to want to run the ball. They’ve gotta get it going. Because if they don’t, they won’t have a shot, because, you know, Mike Glennon can’t win the game for us right now. He’s just not in that process in his career where he’s able to do that.”
This is discouraging to hear from Becht. And Becht went on to explain that the current struggles of the O-line could get worse as teams disrespect a rookie QB and dare Glennon to beat them.
Joe hopes the Bucs can snap out of their funk of four offensive touchdowns in four games. Joe would be stunned if the Bucs get away from pounding the football. Hopefully, this week it will be effective.
