Glennon Says He Has Much To Learn

June 11th, 2013

Rookie quarterback Mike Glennon may have earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in 4 1/2 years at North Carolina State, but he’s no prodigy when it comes to the Bucs playbook.

Glennon explained today that most if not all of the Bucs plays have been rolled out this offseason, but he’s not ready to take the field.

“Definitely not there. I have a general idea of what we’re trying to accomplish on every play. But I need to get in the playbook more and have a better understanding come camp,” Glennon told after today’s practice. “With time and with reps I’m sure that will come. I’m definitely a lot more comfortable than I was a month ago. I know the play calls. I know what’s going on. Now I just have to continue to improve every day.”

Now Joe doesn’t expect Glennon to be ready to start a football game today. Heck, it’s ok if Glennon isn’t ready on opening day. (Joe’s not among the wackos that expect Glennon to be the franchise savior.)

Joe’s only illustrating how much there is for a rookie to soak in, especially at QB, especially in a system that QB coach John McNulty told Joe took Mark Brunell and Eli Manning a few years to master.

    Why not? This is Freeman’s team, but don’t think that Glennon can’t possibly develop into a servicable NFL QB.

    This is the root of the Freeman argument. Everyone thinks Freeman can all of a sudded “have the lightbulb come on” after 55+ starts. So, if you are a fan who has the utmost “hope” in Freeman putting it all together in 2013, why must one doubt Glennon?

    I believe a good bit of the Glennon doubt is truly magnified by the “insecurities” with our current QB.

    Joe, one would be a “whacko” to think a 3rd round QB can’t develop into a franchise guy.

    You think we just “wasted” the # 73 overall pick in this draft? Heck no!

    The preseason can’t get here fast enough for me, then we’ll get answers to a lot of questions

    I think Joe was referring to the starting him in game one of the regular season. In an earlier article they talked about how it took Eli and Brunnell a few years to grasp this system. I have hope that he will be a good player, but to throw him into the fire would be just silly. Teams would just blitz the crap out of him and double team Vincent Jackson.

    Gee, I wonder if Ocho Cinco still has that Future Hall Of Famer jacket, so Glennon can borrow it.
