Glennon Mob Doesn’t Have To Dig Deep

November 25th, 2014

McCownGlennonIt’s been tough sledding for the Mike Glennon Mob. What a rollercoaster ride this year has been.

Those “19-and-9” bumper stickers, hot sellers last Valentine’s Day, were emblematic of the movement. But now there’s a new rallying cry fueled by fresh data.

Here’s the Glennon reality for many.

Josh McCown has taken more sacks per dropback and lost more yards per sack.

Josh McCown has thrown more interceptions in fewer attempts.

Josh McCown has seven touchdowns to Glennon’s 10.

Josh McCown has a lower quarterback rating.

Josh McCown is 1-5 as a starter. Glennon is 1-4, with the one win coming against a winning team.

Who could argue with those who repeatedly bang their head against a wall because their favorite team prefers a bad, 35-year-old NFL starter to a second-year player who might be better and at least has more potential?

Yes, Joe realizes choosing between McCown and Glennon is like picking between warm beer and expired milk, But there is a wise choice.

    Joe just stop making sense.

  2. DB55 Says:

    Joe to quote your most seasoned and most knowledgable readers “STFU you moron ignorant idiot you don’t know nothing about football. Mccown is 10x the QB that Glennon is. Some of youz are stupid and no nothing about football”

    Did I get that right? Pretty much?

  3. Robert 9 Says:

    as a founding member of the MGM, I strongly support them playing McClown.

    I hope they trade him to a team that will utilize his talents.

    play mcclown, keep MG upright so he can finish his career a success…even if it is with another team…….cause this O line, head coach and this OC are garbage and have no clue how to use talent.

    I’ll take warm beer for a thousand, Alex.

  5. Robert 9 Says:

    trade the cannon i mean

    Joe very funny, I can’t stop laughing!

  7. biff barker Says:

    The Andrew Astleford column pretty much confirmed what we all knew. No running game, no help for any QB.

    I’d still bench McCown because of the turnovers though. Rainey took the heat early on for fumbles, why not McCown?

  8. Robert 9 Says:

    and no, I do not think MG is peyton manning. he is average at best, but still 3 times the qb of mcclown.

    that being said he has huge upside if help to develop. on this team he’ll be toast in a few years and past his prime by the time he gets to a good team and then have limited upside.

    the bucs will ruin his career if they keep him.

  9. DB55 Says:

    I with you guys. Trade MG8, Lovie doesn’t deserve to have him. I hear Kyle orton will be available next year. Orton and mccown Lovies wet dream. Oh let’s not forget Grossman bring him in to “compete” too.

  10. DB55 Says:

    Can you guys imagine were we would be if MG8 had the protection and defense displayed on Sunday? Thanks obama.

  11. bucrightoff Says:

    Mike Glennon, the only QB in the NFC South to beat a team from the NFC North….

  12. bucrightoff Says:

    AFC North? lol I’m not drunk at work…

  13. RastaMon Says:

    McCown has better wheels…but he has bad bearings….

  14. Zpope Says:

    I’ll take the warm beer over the expired milk.

  15. Keith Says:

    Stats shouldn’t surprise anyone watching the games. McCown tries hard. Looks like a great summer camp counselor.

  16. DB55 Says:

    I’ll take 8 sacks over 4 to’s any day.

  17. ryan Says:

    lol, what a fluff article by Joe. That is some hard hitting analysis. I guess with the Bucs sucking so much, web clicks are down and he needs an attention whoring article to drive some clicks to make sure he gets enough revenue for November.

    It is quite obvious what this site has become. A little bit of good stuff surrounded by a bunch of trash.

  18. BucTired Says:

    Play the War Giraffe!

  19. RastaMon Says:

    Local media….time to expose the clown HC..apply the same…correction…actually HC’s are held to higher standards….WTF are so guys looking at and waiting for…..”Lovie is as Lovie does”….

  20. Architek Says:

    Okay this is absurd – 2 and 9 and we are clamoring for a bad quarterback….

    Week 17 please bail us out!

  21. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    I’d go back to Glennon but neither one can hit the open man consistently.

  22. ElioT Says:

    Another year of NFL football completely down the shi**er.

    I wonder what it feels like to actually be interested in your team come late November?

    This is such a great time of year and it would be so much more enjoyable if we actually had a respectable, decent team playing meaningful games on Sundays.

    Go Sucs!

  23. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I’m tired of the Jameis watch and all this carping about QB ‘s.

    Can anybody tell me if there are any “generational” offensive lineman in this year’s draft?

    Where’s Walter Jones when you need him? Sixth overall pick and eleven years of being the best in the game on the OL. I’d like to start with at least one rock and build from there. I think if we found a stud left tackle Mankins could go one more year, especially if he was playing along side a true talent. We’d be adequate a center. Dotson is OK. So we need to find a servicable right guard and hope some of the young players work out for depth.

    The right draft pick next year could turn our OL around pretty quickly.

  24. ColoradoBuc Says:

    …sour milk? What’s the best answer?

  25. Bannor Says:

    they both suck. Draft a QB and trade glennon for the 5th round pick that he’s worth. Keep McClown around for a year or 2 for mentoring purposes.

  26. Espo Says:

    The most popular guy on the team is the one in next year’s draft.

  27. SteveK Says:

    Lovie is a JOKE, if he really thinks McCown is better than Glennon.

    “Still in the playoff hunt”, you gotta be kidding me.

    Glennon has better numbers, a better win, and is better at taking care of the ball. All of that, and he is 10 years younger.

    Lovie is wrong on this one, and I hope he roasts for not making a change.

    Everyone wanted Schiano out of town, and to BucsFanInChina, I thought Schiano deserved a 3rd year, as he took WAY TOO MUCH blame for Josh Freeman imploding, MRSA, etc… Wasn’t it our team trainer for 10+ years who brought the MRSA in the building?

    Give me a break people, Lovie is not doing a good job, at winning OR playing the CORRECT player.

    Erica Paige, on line 1, Lovie can’t replace you.

  28. Rutgers4Schiano Says:


  29. Rutgers4Schiano Says:

    Mike “Montana” Kafka, the Human artillery, start him now and watch the wins pile up.

  30. Rutgers4Schiano Says:

    Draft a QB, but please, please draft O-Linemen……….PLEASE!!!!!

  31. warrenfb12 Says:

    Defense may be able to help Glennon now too. It was a sieve while he was in there. Losing many fourth quarter leads.

    Reinsert Glennon, it was foolish to remove him in the first place.

  32. warrenfb12 Says:

    Although I think that Lovie will be sticking with McCown through the rest of the season, for reasons unknown.

  33. Soggy Says:

    It is not so much McCowns fault he needed a job, but who was it that thought He would be our QB with no Off season competition? Lovie just crowned him QB, Lovie is pure genius..

  34. BFFL Says:

    Solve the reason why George Warhop is the OL coach and Marcus Arroyo is calling plays and you will have a solution to the problem.

  35. biff barker Says:

    Immediately brings in McCown.

    Tries to trade the Cannon.


    “Competition at every position”

    McCown inserted as starter…. no competition at QB.

    The Cannon is the QOF!

    The Cannon runs for his life, The RB’s run for very little.

    The Cannon gets yanked.

    “He did some good things”

    “We’re in a playoff race, Josh gives us the best chance”

    2-14 is eminent.

    The Cannon is traded for a conditional 5th rounder.

  36. dan Says:

    Play Glennon!

  37. Bucnjim Says:

    The real question is why would you continue to play McCown? Does not matter which one you like!!! Need to get Glennon more reps and McCown is as good as he will ever be at 35

  38. mveal2006 Says:

    1-5 vs. 1-4 while tebow who took an equally bad team to the playoffs gets the ratings as an announcer.
    decided schematic advantage – you know that’s more important than will to win

  39. brandonbucsfan Says:

    @ BFFL- Totally agree with you. For those of you who are so excited about MM or JW to quote Lee Corso..NOT SO FAST. MM still has one year left of eligibility left. First, Is he that excited about the possibility of going to NY with a new staff? Second, do we event want a spread offense QB? JW>>will L&L want the circus? Last..we may not even be in position to draft either one. The JEts will definitely take one. Remember, we play Cinn the weekend. Possible trap game for Cinn? They play the Steelers twice, the Browns and Broncos after us. Lastly, we still play two division games. WE all know what could happen in either one those since neither one of those look like SB candidates. 3-4 wins would knock us into the Hundley – Greg Cook scenario. It will be an interesting 5 week ride. Can you say DE as our first pick in RD. one Qb in two and OT in 3?

  40. Tiny Tim Says:

    Oh my God!!!! Please no more debate over the backup qb vs the backup qb. DO you guys really know football? We are doomed no matter who starts because the team sucks and the qbs are worse. Stop the madness please.

  41. Brandon Says:

    I’m all in for Glennon. We know what we’re getting. With McCown you just never know, he scares me, he might be able to beat some teams… Glennon, not so much.

  42. DB55 Says:


    Oddly, Glennon beat the team with a winning record.

  43. Zam Says:

    McCown has a higher completion rate and that’s even including all the checkdowns from Glennon.

  44. DB55 Says:


    He also has a better losing percentage too.

  45. Buccfan37 Says:

    Glennon is the better QB. Lovie got it backwards. Play MG, McCown is the backup. Lovie the stubborn mule will wilt further trying to prove his QB pick has any merit outside a backup. MG will improve his game, put him in.

  46. pittbucfan Says:

    Warm beer is still, well, beer. Glennon should be right now showing he has what it takes or doesn’t. McCown is a swell backup at best.

    McCown has a higher completion rate and that’s even including all the checkdowns from Glennon.
    Yet, MG8 has 23 passes for 20+, and 3 for 40+, and JM12 had 13 for 20+yds, and 2 for 40+ yds, at least before this last game.


  48. SteveK Says:

    MG8 is our best QB, and has potential.

    Yet, he sits the bench.

    $50 million on the o-line, only to be worse.

    That’s like poetry.

    lol joe just stop making sense.

  51. dave Says:

    haha absolutely perfect analogy joe. glennon is warm beer, mccown spoiled milk. At least glennon gets you a buzz

  52. HairlessHenry Says:

    Two many of you dorks or sh** heads if you prefer wouldn’t know football talent if it hit you in the face. You just listen to Steve D and swallow whatever he feeds you. He hates Glennon and you do also because SD is your Idle. Lovey is a looser and will never recover from this year. Glazers probable already have his replacement on deck gust like the had him to replace Schiano. Instead of eating his contract they need to demote him to an assistant defensive coach. Working underneath his son he hired. He needs to know he fkkd our year up.

  53. Capt.Tim Says:

    Lovie Smith. A professional NFL coach. Lifetime winning record. Coached a team to Super Bowl. Is trying to turn the Bucs from a Sh*tsandwich, into a competative NFL team.

    Unlike you clueless whiners-He actually knows an NFL QB when he sees one.

    Mr. Glennon- he is your clipboard

  54. BoJim Says:

    Lovie need to forget about McCown saving the season. He can’t manipulate his balls. They are shrunk up into his stomach from fear. Play Glennon. Let’s see what we got, and if he ain’t got it, trade him to someone that needs a good QB cuz that is what he’ll become.

  55. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Warm beer or out of date milk? How about a Grey Goose Martini on draft day when we grab some new players.
