Glennon Accolades Roll In From Ex-Bucs

October 6th, 2014

mike glennon 0930cLovie Smith sure was happy with Mike Glennon while speaking to media after yesterday’s painful loss.

And Lovie is not alone.

Former Bucs Dave Moore and Anthony Becht jumped on the WDAE-AM 620 airwaves this morning and shared hefty praise of Glennon.

Among other things, Moore talked extensively about how Glennon looks so comfortable versus the “happy feet” of Josh Freeman. Moore said that was so evident on the touchdown throw to Louis Murphy. “He’s just backing away from the pressure without panic,” Moore said.

Becht had plenty of praise and summed it up with, “Definitely I thought he was on point.”

You can listen to all of Becht’s comments below via WDAE-AM 620 audio.

Yes, Joe agrees that Glennon played a pretty good game. Glennon did enough over the past two games to show he could quickly evolve into a decent NFL starter. Hopefully, Glennon will get the rest of the season to make a complete case for himself — good or bad. So the Bucs can have a focused draft plan this offseason at the quarterback position.

  1. Casual Observer Says:

    Agree. Some of those early penalties negated some really good completions (20-30 yards) by MG. Could well have been the difference in the game. He had very few bad throws. I think he will only get better.

  2. Hawk Says:

    While impressed, it’s still too early to tell. There should be no doubt (in any sane person’s mind), that he is the better option (Glennon/McCown), but, as you said, by the end of the season, the Bucs will know if DL/OL is the first round focus, or QB.
    Even *if* Glennon silences his remaining doubters, *I* believe it wouldn’t hurt to pick a QB in say… the third/fourth round, unless Lovie sees Kafka as the backup QB of the future.

  3. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Both of his years in the NFL Glennon has been eliminated from the playoffs by week 5 and none of it is on him.

  4. Ray Rice Says:

    This kid is comfortable and you can see it. His eyes stay down field and he is decisive with his throws. They should take the chains off him and give him more freedom to audibe and pick up the tempo as needed. I’ve noticed he is also way .more comfortable in the shotgun. The good thing is that the O-Line is pass blocking real good and Glennon is trusting his protection. His pocket presence has also been eye opening this season compared to last.

  5. billy buckaroo Says:

    Considering that Glennon looks like he has only one option which is to go with the play called from the bench regardless of the defensive lineup, he has done remarkably well.
    I watch Aaron rodgers and Mannings and others get to the line and change the play because of the def lineup and consequently force the def into changing their call
    Regardless of what Glennon barks out at the snap count, the def doesnt make changes because they realize Glennons not changing the play called by the bench.
    Glennon has shown the ability to play, now let him have more control of the game situation rather than being forced into plays the defense has figured out.

  6. BucFanForever Says:

    If only the Bucs were better at coin-tosses, they would have won the game. ARGH!!! They need to practice this skill all week.

  7. Barry Says:

    I’m just happy we don’t have to worry about the QB position and can concentrate on other areas. A stud MLB is a must.

  8. robert9 Says:

    he’s got it, now get him the plays earlier and get the O line up to snuff so he actually has time to make his reads and call audibles.

  9. Skyline Crew Says:

    Glennon outplayed Brees yesterday. Lovie or whomever is calling the plays needs to let Glennon throw the ball more. Penalties got us. No running got us. Just let Glennon throw the ball and we will see what happens.

    If you look at Denver they throw the ball a ton and the running game just happens to open up. For next years draft we should focus on some O/D-line and get a QB later on in the draft.

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    My uncle (a Pat’s fan) is bitter towards the Bucs ever since Gruden cut my cousin from the team. He makes fun of them at every turn and me for being a fan.

    He calls me up yesterday at the end of game and I’m expecting to hear some garbage smack talk about my team.

    The first words out of his mouth is : “It looks like your team has finally found their QB.”

    This is a guy that has never had anything good to say about this team for last 10 years or so. Goes out of his way to trash them.

    My reply to him : “I think your right.”

  11. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Glennon is horrible under pressure. He nearly threw a boneheaded pick six to a DLman! Was picked-off when he had pressure on him.

  12. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Saints and Steelers aren’t known for their defense these days, let’s be honest folks.

  13. mpmalloy Says:

    If the o-line wasn’t a penalty machine and if they could run block
    then the Bucs could RULE THE WORLD

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    “Glennon is horrible under pressure.”

    That’s why he watches game film. To correct his mistakes.

    If this kid improves throughout the season I don’t want them to go near a QB in the 1st and I definitely don’t want to start over with a rookie QB that has to learn.
    That’s going backwards at that point. Of course he has to show marked improvement, so far he has. Which indicates to me that he might be even better by the end of the season.

  15. passthebuc` Says:

    I’m not a mob member but it was always easy to see that this kid has talent. why there was such a rush to throw the baby out with the bath water indicates a lack of football knowledge from many. as i have said before, put him on the trading block and see how long he lasts. i would bet Cleveland would give you johnny football and a 4th rd pick for a trade.

  16. bucrightoff Says:

    Maybe next year he’ll actually start from week one as opposed to coming in when the season is virtually lost. Bucs are at worst 3-2 right now if he started from week 1.

  17. 1Gr8Buc Says:

    Stick with Glennon for the rest of this year and next. Imagine what he can do when he has an offseason to build timing with his receivers and better communication with the OL. He has never had the chance to do that with the confidence going in know he is the man. Two years in a row now he has gotten the $h!t end of the stick after 3 weeks of abysmal losing. I’m not predicting playoffs this year or even a winning season but, after the Bye week I can see this team turning the proverbial corner.

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    I keep telling people he’s learning and he’s a quick study, but that’s not good enough. Buc fans want instant Andrew Luck or instant Manning.

    I, just like everyone else have longed for this team to have a quality(franchise) QB. I also realize that they are tough to find. Even if the team goes 2-14 and is high enough to draft a stellar college QB, there is no guarantee he won’t be a bust.

    I just think. They know what they have in Glennon and if it can be improved upon, then why go into the murky waters of an untested rookie QB? Why go backwards.

    Once again, I see no Lucks, or Manning’s coming out in this draft. Just as I said last draft.

  19. Soggy Says:

    @feelthepewterpower, “He nearly threw a boneheaded pick”

    So did brees, hating on glennon island is getting smaller and smaller are you feeling lonely?

  20. Skyline Crew Says:

    I would rather have Wilson than Luck, but that is just me.

  21. bucsQcCity Says:

    I’m joining the MGM!! We need to let the Cannon loose.. And find him a good RB that is not 2 feets tall. Martin and Rainey have all the problem in the world to catch simple swing pass when Glennon is throwing over a defender.

    The kid deserves respect.

  22. stevek Says:

    Glad to see Glennon progressing, and taking advantage of an opportunity.

    The starting QB, going into last year, never took advantage of his physical gifts by working hard. It is a breath of fresh air to see this guy getting better.

  23. Architek Says:

    There is definitely improvement being made – we just have to endure the growing pains.

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    Then again…Jameis Winston jersey sales would make the Glazers a boat-load of money. I still say Winston stays another year at FSU though. I think his dad’s going to make him stay.

  25. Mike10 Says:

    Ya let’s simmer down with our sentiments for Glennon. To those of you sold on MG as being the man we build this franchise around, you sound like a school girl ready to get married after a first date, coming off a relationship where your ex slapped you around a bit. Easy does it.

    Beckles said it best, Glennon proves at least now that QB is the least of our concerns on offense. Can he manage 16 regular season games and get you to the playoffs? So let’s all not “wait to exhale” and label his position as “to be revisited in 11 weeks.”

  26. Skyline Crew Says:

    I hear you Mike, but as of right now QB is the least of our problems. Now if all the sudden he starts playing like McCown did then yes we have a problem. However, if he continues to play the way he has and put pts on the board I don’t think you have to worry about a 1st rd QB. Address the linemen and go for a QB in the 3rd or 4th rd.

  27. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Wouldn’t hurt to “Fire the Cannon” on first down every now and again, would it? Is it just me, or is our play calling just painfully obvious to everyone?

    As an original MGMer’ I’ll never say “I told you so”! All I’ll say is the kid is playing very well and growing into a being good NFL a QB. You can tell that the game is not too big for him and that it’s starting to “slow down” for him! Glad he’s finally getting his chance to prove to everyone (again) what a lot of us saw last year….this kid can play!


  28. flmike Says:

    What caught my eye was a play where the pressure was coming, the line was doing it’s job and was forcing the rush around and behind him, and Glennon stepped up into and thru the front of the pocket and found his receiver.

    To me, thats a great sign, he was calm, his eyes were always down field, he was able to sense the pressure, and he moved up in the pocket and completed the pass. Thats what good QBs do.

  29. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    I was thoroughly impressed by Mike Glennon. I was also incredibly disappointed with how often his receivers let him down. I hope Glennon gets to ride out the season so we know for sure what our quarterback situation is going into the off season.

    This defense though, it continues to be mind blowing. So many talented players. Frazier needs to figure this out or be sent packing before the season ends. Let Lovie take over play calling for the rest of the season. Find a new DC in the offseason.

  30. Buc1987 Says:

    Jeagan1999 …I’ve stated the only reason why I became MGM last spring. There was too much bashing of the kid and what they were saying was not what I was seeing. I saw the kid playing pretty damn good considering what he was working with..

    All I said was give the kid some more weapons, more time to get used to the NFL and he might take off.

    Many of us said he had no weapons last season. It was called an excuse, by many, many, many, many, many, MORONS.

    So now when I read a comment by someone STILL trying to knock him all have to do is go pssssssssssh and brush them aside as another fool from last season. I won’t even comment back to the idiots. I suggest to the rest of the MGM to do the same.

  31. Steady Mobbin Says:

    “I would rather have Wilson than Luck, but that is just me.”

    The NC State coaches decided they’ve rather have junior Mike Glennon than senior Russell Wilson, who was coming off a 28 TD year, told Wilson to go eat cheese.

    And then Glennon threw for 62 TDs in 26 games with absolutely no talent at WR, beating a FSU team that was undefeated at the time, and damn near undefeated since. In one of his first starts.

    And then he fell to the 3rd round because he doesn’t run a 4.7 40, legions of fans hated him because he replaced their QB of the future who was good until he got strung out on whatever makes you lose 30 lbs in an offseason while gaining no muscle whatsoever, and threw for 19 TDs 9 INT under a coaching staff universally regarded as incompetent. And currently regarded as unemployed.

    And then we paid a 35 year old turnover machine with a career turnover to win ratio of about 4:1 to replace him.

    And fans didn’t realize he was ok until he outplayed Big Ben and Drew Brees on the road.

    You realize he outplayed Big Ben and Drew Brees on the road right?

    With no OC, a 35 year old 120th ranked college OC who we hired as QB coach calling plays.

    And only now some of you people are realizing this QB might be OK?

    It’s been so long since Buc fans have seen a real QB, some don’t see it when it’s staring them in the face.

  32. stevek Says:


    Glennon can be the guy to lead us to the playoffs, the expensive O-Line Free Agents, need to start playing up to their worth.

    GMC, Michael Johnson, Anthony Collins and Evan Dietrich-Smith need to STEP IT UP!

  33. Steady Mobbin Says:

    Oh, overcoming 130 penalty yards to outplay Brees. With 50 yards of rushing support. With about 7 drops. He looked mobile enough on 3rd and 20 to move around and hit Louis Muprhy for a pass he could perfectly drop.

    If you’d rather spend a 1st rd draft pick on some Marcus Mariotta bullcrap and spend the next two years wondering why a spread QB’s game doesn’t translate to the pros, you’re probably the same guy who trades your entire draft for RG III, and in that case I can’t help you.

  34. Buc1987 Says:

    Steady Mobbin says :

    “beating a FSU team that was undefeated at the time”

    I’m a big Noles fan. I believe the Noles had the number ranked defense coming into that game too or they were ranked pretty friggin high. I saw that game.
    Glennon was pissing me off in that game.

  35. Skyline Crew Says:

    Steady Mobbin, I have addressed that so many times it isn’t fun anymore. That is false information. Wilson wanted to play baseball and then NC State decided to move Glennon up as starter after Wilson had already made the decision. They wanted Wilson to stay. Then later in the year Wilson decided he wanted to play football again and went to a different school. Wilson wasn’t forced out.

    Also, I don’t know why you are talking to me like I don’t like Glennon. I supported Glennon last year and knew he was fine.

  36. Buc1987 Says:

    number 1 ranked D*

    I’m going to have to get my eyes checked. This sucks I’m getting old and I think I finally need glasses.

  37. Bucnjim Says:

    It’s too bad Glennon has had to face two 0-3 starts before he’s even had a chance to lead this team. When your team is basically out of the playoffs by week three who knows how they will respond the rest of the season. How many have already packed it in for the year and how is that fair to judge Glennon when obviously he’s facing some half A$$’d effort from some.

  38. Buccfan37 Says:

    Glennon played well, just like the majority of Bucs fans expected. The rest of the team had their ups and downs with the mistakes that led to the safety telling the tale in the end. No defense in OT spelled the loss. The refs clearly impacted the game. Was’nt the OT coin toss the first coin toss the Bucs lost all season?

  39. Greg Says:

    Great points Steady Mobbin!

  40. Couch Fan Says:

    Mike “Winnin With No Chance” Glennon.

    Glad people are finally opening their eyes and mind to the kid. Writing him off so early in his career just because of how he looked was silly.

    Long Live the MGM!!!

  41. Kysteve Says:

    Glennon looked very good to me. We should have won that game. Penalties really killed us. No way Glennon can beat the apposing team, the refs, the drops, and our own stupid play.
    This defense is really getting on my nerves. I really expected more, I have a feeling it is coaching that is the underlying issue. Something is very wrong in the way we cover, tackle and read the offense. No way NO should run through us like that.

    Let’s see if we can find some discipline on the penalties, (and just what is a language penalty during a celebration????) Seems it was 11 against at least 15 for most of the game. I know some of the calls were on point but some were pretty much BS.

    GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Find a way to win, not lose, we know all those options.

  42. Soggy Says:

    @Mike10 says: MG as being the man we build this franchise around, you sound like a school girl ready to get married after a first date, coming off a relationship where your ex slapped you around a bit.

    Wow you are brilliant, how did we miss that?

  43. rriddler Says:

    It’s only been 2 games, but I think Glennon is showing some real promise.

    I plan to ask this question again later on in the season, but would you trade Mike Evans for Johnny Manziel right now?

  44. Skyline Crew Says:


    I’m not Joe, but I would not trade them. I guess if we could trade for some draft picks than maybe, but not a straight up trade unless you are referencing the draft. I would have still taken Evans over Manziel.

  45. Steady Mobbin Says:

    Would you trade Mike Glennon for Manziel right now?

  46. Skyline Crew Says:

    Hell no. Trade a starter for a bench warmer. Get our of here.

  47. Skyline Crew Says:

    Now, I would trade McCown for Gordon. Think they would go for that? Get Gordon on the team and keep the pot out of his hand and we got a playmaker at WR.

  48. Skyline Crew Says:

    I would probably trade McCown for Manziel though. Manziel would probably be a better backup than McCown, but McCown looks comfortable as the backup and I think he enjoys doing it.

  49. sho nuff Says:

    he needs to grab Jenkinns by the face mask and light him up…

  50. Steady Mobbin Says:

    I’d trade McCown for Alex Van Pelt.

    I’d trade Barron for Byrd with a torn ACL, too.

  51. sho nuff Says:

    no offense but i could care less what any “analyst” paid by the bucs has to say…sorry that road is predictably boring

  52. Newbucsfan!!! Says:

    If Glennon is the man then we should win the division. To ship over a 1st rd QB for him would not make any sense whatsoever. This divion is lost right now and can be had, the saints defense gave up over 30 pts too and still won. The bucs defense did the same thing but at least Glennon played good, right. With the tape from last season and the rest of this season is still the man if this team only wins 3 games?

  53. andres Says:

    Can’t wait to see Glennon against a very very good Raven defense. I will hold judgement until after that game. Let’s see what he does against a serious pass rush… my guess is he will do fine, but can he take that next step and become better than a “decent starter” as Joe puts it.

  54. Grizim2222E.Buffalo Says:

    Glennon played well enough to make a case for him starting the rest of the year. I do think that he’s improving. But he’s inconsistent under pressure. He does have heart though. Somthing I questioned last year. But for all of the MGM’ers that think that he’s already shown that he’s a franchise QB.Just look at Matt Castle. He stepped in for Brady, went 11-5. People thought Castle was a franchise QB. Including Minn.and KC. How did that work out?

  55. stevek Says:


    Glennon is improving, and only going to get better. Glennon held up his end of the bargain this past Sunday. Drops, penalties and the Defense are what screwed this up.

    How many times has Tampa Bay let a young QB go, only to see them develop into a Super Bowl QB?

    I’ll pass on a 1st round QB. We need edge rush, O-Line, a MLB and a FS.

  56. Skyline Crew Says:


    If Glennon is putting up the points, but the defense can’t stop anyone is it really the QBs fault? It is the defense’s fault we lost yesterday. Glennon did what he could.

  57. Mando PLayr Says:

    Hey Steady Mobbin you’re on a roll today making really good points. Almost like you are plagerizing my mind. As the defense and the supprting cast of players on offense gets better Glennon will lead us to playoffs for years to com. Go Bucs.

  58. buctebow Says:

    The pundits say nice things about Glennon, as they have to find something nice to say. How about this evaluation, hmm the Bucs lost, Glennon lost, that is the only review that matters. He didn’t come through in the clutch.

  59. Skyline Crew Says:

    You are right tebow. Glennon lost this game. It was the poor defensive play. It was the penalties. It was the run on 1st play every time. It was all Glennon’s fault. No matter how many pts he puts on the board it will always be his fault.

  60. Skyline Crew Says:

    Also, he played better than Brees did. I can’t honestly lay blame on Glennon when it wasn’t his fault.

  61. ItsDookie87 Says:

    Glennon was supposed to win with the defense giving up 34 points on the road with multiple drops and numerous damning penalties yet Brees almost lost with home cooking refs at home. That’s a HOF QB vs a 2nd year QB that has had exactly 0 1st team off season reps in his first 2 years. I just wish we could have seen Glennon have a chance in OT on a make or break drive but he didn’t even get the chance. #ThatsDookie

  62. RealityCheck Says:

    Doesn’t matter what anyone says, people like bucteblow that are set on hating Glennon no matter what will simply claim that losing a game means the QB lost the game. Apparently they can’t comprehend anything other than a black and white scenario. Glennon is one of the few positives with this team and I hope he keeps growing and learning.

  63. Scott Says:

    Should be gone soon. Just hit the back button.–Joe

  64. captwes213 Says:

    Based on the last couple of games, Glennon is already a decent NFL starter, if you project his recent play over a longer period of time (which I realize is far from guaranteed, but we can’t know that for sure until we’ve seen him for a couple years anyway). What remains to be seen is whether he can be a good to great NFL starter. I didn’t think so originally, but he’s starting to make a believer out of me. Really opened my eyes yesterday. He is MUCH improved over last year.

    He puts the “Dynamite” in Napoleon Dynamite!

  65. Hawk Says:

    buctebow Says:

    “The pundits say nice things about Glennon, as they have to find something nice to say.”

    No they don’t. Why do you think they have to find something ‘good’ to say about anything/anyone?

    “How about this evaluation, hmm the Bucs lost, Glennon lost, that is the only review that matters. He didn’t come through in the clutch.”

    He came through last week “in the clutch”, but you still didn’t like it. So your ‘evaluation’ is flawed and worthless.
    BTW, 16 teams lost. That means 16 QBs didn’t ‘win it for the team’… every week. The Bucs certainly don’t want any of those QBs either.

    Just in case you forgot…

    “buctebow Says:
    October 3rd, 2014 at 10:22 am

    I don’t understand the MGM love. He just is not all that and a bag of chips. I know what I saw last year and I watched him this year, he is just not that great, maybe below average at best. If the Saints score 30, it would be a miracle if the Bucs under Glennon could do the same, without a couple of pick 6′s.”

    The ” Bucs under Glennon” scored 31 points, so I can see why you’re not happy. If the Buc defense could have held the Saints to a paltry 30 points, the Bucs would have won.

  66. biggun Says:

    Glennon did do an audible on one play which was a successful first down pickup I was impressed he did that. It was a run up the gut with mankins pulling off to a lead blocker, that was changed at the line by Glennon.

  67. Buc1987 Says:

    buctebow….are you a Tebow fan? or does your name mean f Tebow?

  68. Grizim2222E.Buffalo Says:


    Yes there are SOME people who will never like Glennon no matter how well he plays.
    Then there are some people like myself that have a “wait and see” mentality. I think Glennon deserves a shot to prove he can be the guy for the foreseeable future. But that has yet to be determined. Look at how Josh was ran out of town (which he has to take SOME responsibility for) after all he accomplished. Again I can name a few. Matt Shaub, Matt Castle. etc… Let’s see how Glennon does a good defense like BAL. and even Cleveland. Those will definitely make the picture a lot more clear.

  69. Rick Ramos Says:

    Reading the accolades for Mike Glennon something struck me. With all of Joe’s and others’ Johnny Football this and franchise quarterback that, let’s think about Aaron Rodgers, aka franchise quarterback for the Green Bay Packers.

    Unlike Glennon, franchise quarterback Rodgers was drafted in 2005 and only started in 2008 after understudying for one the best ever Brett Favre.

    Given what Glennon got for a learning by watching period, three games under Josh Freeman who was cut shortly after being benched and three games under career back-up Josh McCown, Glennon is doing pretty well.

    I think Greg Schiano was onto something when he drafted Glennon and Lovie Smith and Jason Licht are on target when they say Glennon is the Bucs’ QB of the future — err QB of today.

  70. CLW JB Says:

    Glennon is pretty darn good and if you can’t see that, you are blind. He’s in his 2 nd year, on another bad team and yet he stands out for his poise, his arm strength and his accuracy. Counted at least 4 drops in the 1 st qtr alone, two by the rookie TE that were huge gains – then the stupid penalties back to back killing another 50 yards or more…give the kid the season and coach up that horrible defense- can anybody else play MLB until Foster gets back, Fletcher SUCKS – has no awareness in coverage and is just slow…maybe bring Lansanaha (sp) to the middle and plug Casilias back in at Sam

  71. Grizim2222E.Buffalo Says:

    @CLW JB 

    Yes Glennon did look pretty darn good. He deserves props for playing well. But those of you who that are ready to crown him a franchise QB sound a little groupie like. Glennon still has some of the same question marks as last year. His pocket presence is an issue. Sometimes he gets rid of the ball before he needs to. But to his credit he did show patients on the TD throw to Murphy. But we have to see what he looks like against a defense that not a porous as NO. His mobility in the pocket needs to continue to progress. My concern is that we may have seen Glennon’s ceiling as it pertains to his mobility within the pocket. Dont get me wrong he did make some plays with his legs. That scramble and floater to 83 was nice. But if teams understand that all you have to do is get Glennon offers spot then he’s toast.

  72. CLW JB Says:

    He isn’t complete yet for sure, but he is good already and has more ceiling to go due to his brains and strong arm. We have a lot of games left, so hopefully we see more development and have a viable option. NO has a very bad defense, no doubt. You should hang 30 points on them and he did. Baltimore is another story, so we will see some more evidence, either way, soon enough.

    glennon has played well with crap for an offense going on 2 years, imagine giving him an o line. maybe a running game. hes been passing on defenses
    that are sitting on the pass, all plays being called are situationaly predictable. yet he stills converts on 3rd and long like a machine. after his receivers drop passes on 1st(when they finally call a pass -.-) and 2nd down. watch him last year, he took a beating on every snap and still delivered the ball. the man has no quit and is thus, a winner.

  74. Phillip Says:


    Once again you are wrong…. It’s called Wilson wanted to play baseball as well and the HC of NC State didn’t want him to…

    Seriously man if you are gonna try and make a statement do your research.. Like keep thinking we could have had Hillis in the Freeman trade..

    Or we could have had Luke and LVD…

    Just stop…

    Like to see how Glennon plays against a couple legit NFL defense’s before I start to praise him more than he played well… Too bad we wasted two opportunities in the 1st 2 weeks of the season.. Hopefully he is still the starter in weeks 13 and 14(Bengals and Lions)..
