Glennon The Record Breaker

November 24th, 2013

Mike Glennon already owned the Buccaneers rookie record for touchdown passes. And now, following a fantastic seven-yard throw to Tiquan Underwood today in Detroit, Glennon became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw a TD in his first eight games.

Glennon’s progress has been so steady and stunning. Joe can still remember Glennon looking shaky making bad decisions against second- and third-team defenses in training camp. Now the kid is a hot name in the NFL.

He finished today 14-for-21 with 247 yards and two touchdowns.

    Is there any room on the Glennon Mob Bandwagon? Somebody, please save me a spot.

    Joe….I’ll leave this to the professionals….have we ever had a QB with over a 130 QB rating two weeks in a row? I don’t know if Vinny ever did, I doubt Dilfer did?

    Kid Glennon…..nice name….kinda looks like he could be on the “Happy Days” cast. The kid next door type.

    🙂 still room on the bus if you would like to join the Glennon mob

    @luther I typed that without seeing what you said lol

    See? I told you guys!!!

    And how about that long ball!!!!

    All this is doing is making all of us wish Glennon started from day 1. Where could this season be if he did?

  8. mark2001 Says:

    bucrightoff…don’t think it would have worked had he started day one. I think Freeman had to torch his relationship with the team before they would rally behind Glennon. In fact, it might have hurt his development.

    I thought the Glennon pick was a good move when it happened. He has exceeded all expectations. We got us a tough smart QB. Height does have its advantages.

  10. WalkdaPlank Says:

    I ask you again Joe, are you sold? Glennon sure was rifling passes downfield today against a good defense too, and didn’t have a running game either. I think we all misjudged Glennon.

    I would like to remind Joe that “Freeman gives us the best chance to win.” #toosoon

    and the packer and Vikings end in a friggin tie. what a weak asped sport with no winner! might as well play soccer.

  13. gotbbucs Says:

    We’d be right in the thick of things, which is why it baffles me so much that some people on here still want to waste a 1st round pick on a QB.

    It seems Joe may have finally pulled his head out of his rear on this subject, maybe?

  14. NY Buc Says:

    Bet Glennon doesn’t have a sophomore slump next year…he seems to rely on an excellent football IQ and good work ethic instead of relying on just athletic ability. Call me impressed so far.

  15. Upthegut Says:

    Time to give the coach some credit. He made had decisions with #5 and is developing Glennon. The teams is fighting and scrapping for wins. Credit to the entire team and coaching staff.
    Bolster both lines in the off season and roll in ’14

  16. Jordon Says:

    Glennon has poise, smarts and a great arm. His future in Tampa and the NFL is bright! Reminds me of a young Manning or Andrew Luck.

  17. Jon Says:

    Rick stroud writes glennon struggles with the deep ball and everyone believes him. I saw he’s actually one of the more accurate in the NFL. Believe your eyes! Go Buccaneers!

  18. Luther Says:

    @Touchdown…thanks for looking out for a fellow fan!!!

  19. tampa2 Says:

    I am happily eating some humble pie myself. I was right there with Joe all season on wanting Manziel or Bridgewater etc. Shoot, Glennon keeps playing like this than no thank you. Great job Mr. Glennon, thanks for proving a lot of us wrong. Keep doing what you’re doing

    138.4 this week. 137.5 last week.

    Ten first downs vs 25 for the Lions.
    4/14 3rd down conversions.
    22 yards rushing.

    The Bucs were lucky that they benefited from 5 turnovers and a blocked punt. Nothing to write home about. Still too many penalties.

    Folks, RedBeard is JUST a rookie! I eman sure he’s made some mistakes, many of his sacks were coverage sacks, or someone whiffed on a charging defender! Whoever said he doesn’t have a deep ball is blind, this man throws a beautiful ball, especially those mid range passes are lasers, AND he has a quick release, so most of those seem effortless, but he does have an NFL arm to handle the deep throws, and he’s not afraid, that 85yard pass to Eraser head Underwood was right on the money, a thing of beauty! I was one of those that wanted to keep Freeman, and I am happily admitting this was the better move, I think we don’t have to worry about the top pick and these band of sharp looking college QB’s, we have our guy, if he’s this good with shoddy protection and no running game, then imagine when the game slows down for him…..Give Glennon the opportunity to show you he’s worthy, many teams would be all over him if we gave up, do you think the Jets would rather have him over Geno Smith if they had their druthers? Go Redbeard!!

    Don”t get too excited folks. Big Dog says he would take Case Keenam everyday and twice on sunday! On second thought, get excited!

    Johnny Football! Derp!

  25. Ed Says:

    Glennon was getting a lot of pass rush today, had no running game Lions are similar to the Bucs with a very good rush defense.

    Give him a couple of more weapons like a quick slot receiver and a big tight end. Wright has been good but if Glennon had a Jimmy Graham, Gronk or even a Greg Olsen to throw to, his yards per attempt would go up.

    Donald Penn got his ass whipped one-on-one today. Glennon was on the run most of the game. He still played well enough to put the team in position to win and he didn’t make stupid throws like Matt Stafford did.

    I like his consistency and decision making. Give him some better pass catchers and a little better protection and I see a quality NFL QB playing in Tampa.

    Just an oldfart. Have to post the same thing everywhere. Can’t be happy we won. WHO gives a damn about the stat. Yes there is work that needs to be done. FIRE Lindell first. But the mission was complete. WIN!!

  28. Bobby Says:

    Told you just watch his college tape if you thought he had no deep ball. HE’s going to be special if he keeps this up. When I watched the game he played against Clemson he looked elite. Incredible accuracy. If he can continue to channel that at this level then he’s going to be special. Keep in mind that with Glennon there will be times where he will get sacked where a more mobile QB would escape. He will more than make up for that short coming with his intelligence and accuracy. It’s how Manning does it. It’s how Brady does it. It’s how all true pocket passers have to do it at this level. They become experts at reading defenses and they get rid of the ball quickly. Glennon has a lot to learn but he is light years ahead of Freeman’s development. He was an absolute steal to get in the third round and I have to credit Schiano for knowing what he was getting in Mike Glennon. No one else believed in the kid. Everyone thought that Freeman gave us the best chance of winning (I’m talking pundits) but Glennon has proved them all wrong with his development. I really like this kid.

    Stats are for losers; it’s all about the Ws; just ask the other teams that won today

    I have not been on here in some weeks now but I’m glad that people are starting to understand this kid is a stud. I been saying it and will continue saying it . I don’t care about what round and all that other bs. Talk about wins . always remember ” Greatness is not easy and is worked on daily where no one can see .” This kid will make all of us proud and I mean &#%ALL OF US $%&$$!!!!!!

  31. holymoly Says:

    Don’t know what the future is for Big Red, but what I do see is improvement each game. Makes you wonder how he’ll play when he gets Martin and Williams back next year. I believe the Kid has a big upside and will only get better as he goes. If we get Clowney in the draft to go with McCoy, Claiborne and Spence, could make for a rather nasty D!
