Glennon Sabotage Theory Fueled By His Brother

November 4th, 2014

McCownGlennonJoe was alerted earlier to a Twitter message by Mike Glennon’s brother Sean, a Twittering that seemed to have disappeared along with brother Sean’s Twitter account, which later reappeared.

The elder Glennon, the former Virginia Tech quarterback and a guy who has offered strong Bucs opinions previously, supposedly shared his disgust for Lovie Smith today.

How Lovie Smith made it to a Super Bowl…had a lot of respect for him but that’s all gone,” the alleged Twitter message said.

And then Sean Glennon’s Twitter account vanished but reappeared about 1:30 p.m., the same account from which he’s blasted Joe in the past.

A good conspiracy theorist might think Sean Glennon was just told by Mike Glennon that he wasn’t starting on Sunday, shared his disgust and then deleted it.

Joe has no clue, but Joe surely hopes it is Glennon starting Sunday, otherwise Joe will blow a gasket on these pages.

Update: Joe was just sent a screengrab of Sean Glennon’s Twitter in question.

    Well if we sit Glennon you’re sure to get your wish. 1st overall pick here we come!!

  2. Posey99 Says:

    If McCown starts and sucks. Lovie will no doubt be out of a job.

  3. Kenm Says:

    Sean Glennon’s twitter account hasn’t disappeared – Any tweets in the past week have disappeared though.

    Joe didn’t write that it disappeared. Might want to re-read. –Joe

  4. billy buckaroo Says:

    Once Lovie saw a little spark from the running game and marginal throws from Glennon it wasn’t too hard to figure out what was coming-only when??

  5. Patrick in VA Says:

    Maybe it’s a smoke screen to throw the Falcons off. Perhaps that’ll be the edge we need to win the game. When the game starts and they see Glennon in there they’ll be so confused that we’ll jump out to a 35 point lead by halftime.

  6. bucrightoff Says:

    Twitter is for idiots, nothing to see here.

  7. biff barker Says:

    Well at least he’s not alone in jumping off the Lovie train.

  8. DB55 Says:

    take a deep breathe and pucker up Joe. Its hammer time. Ironically I bet glennon gets benched for throwing the red zone int which was he first (ever?) in 70 attempts in the red zone and it hit off an oline helmet. But whatever, time to break out the popcorn and watch the upcoming circus act/show.

  9. lightningbuc Says:

    I’m gonna assume if elder Glennon has no respect for the Savior Lovie, that Mike Glennon has no respect for him either. That makes three of us.

    Lovie’s a joke!

  10. Architek Says:

    mike brother is like a athlete wife that doesn’t know when to Shet up!

    Someone give him MRSA to get him to go away please!

    Where’s Schiano when you need him!

  11. The Buc Realist Says:

    I for one, cannot wait until the draft, to see which QB Lovie will draft for the next coach!!

  12. Patrick in VA Says:

    I don’t know that he’s being sabotaged. I mean, he may not be getting a super fair shake but he has had the opportunities.

  13. Young buc Says:

    He can’t hit wide open targets he’s a bum

  14. Kalind Says:

    Joe, I agree we need to see Glennon, but if they’ve seen enough… Now it’s about losing. Bring on mccown!!!!

  15. The Ether Says:

    I’m curious to see how McCown plays with a decent line… I may actually watch the game now!

  16. Kalind Says:

    To clarify: we need to lose for Jameis. He is the real prize of the season. Getting a true winner at QB would actually make allllllllll these years of terrible play, worth it.

  17. willie d Says:

    Glennon is gone next year, very few will survive the Schiano cleaning. We brought in a guy with worse stats in Canada than our guy in the NFL last year. ST coach is “special” and Lovie is insecure.

  18. The Ether Says:

    everytime I hear about Glennon’s brother, I picture Napoleon Dynamites older brother…

  19. NewTampaChris Says:

    Starting McCown makes sense if:

    *L&L have already decided that Glennon won’t be on next year’s roster
    *L&L think it’s highly likely that they’ll draft a QB with a high pick
    *L&L want McCown to be a bridge starter/backup in 2015 and need to get him some work & confidence.

  20. Patrick in VA Says:

    Maybe we should bring in Glennon’s uncle Rico. The guy can throw a football over a mountain. Talk about a cannon. Have you seen the tape on him when he was working out by that van? He’d start right away

  21. Zam Says:

    You shouldn’t go ballistic if he starts Butters. We’ve seen enough Glennon now.

    Still need to know whether McCown’s worth that 4.5 million dollars he’d make next year. It’s all about who’s the better seatwarmer/backup for the rookie franchise QB we’ll draft. Glennon still has some trade value, but if McCown stinks, you shouldn’t trade him away and should cut McCown.

  22. Celly Says:

    *L&L want McCown to be a bridge starter/backup in 2015 and need to get him some work & confidence.

    That’s what i’m thinking. Missing those 3 open targets and the underthrows this week was the final straw.

    Trade Glennon in the offseason and that would allow you to wait until the 2nd to pick a QB and allow us to take a DB (specifically a safety) in the 1st, which i personally feel is the biggest hole on the team.

  23. Can2boy Says:

    In my eyes it is a toss up of Mariota or Winston, who ever it is will start the rebuilding of the #Bucs but the positive side is we have some great building blocks.

  24. OneLove Says:

    Sean Glennon, your brother sucks. He’s going to be another Josh McCown and backup for this team or another team for the rest of his short NFL career….. Yeah he might end up starting for another NFL team with a shitty roster, but he’ll soon be replaced by another Marcus Mariota the following year.

    “It’s as simple as that” – Lovie Smith

  25. SAMCRO Says:

    Just think Joe, you can now push your draft Winston campaign without much opposition. I mean, what’s the use of having Glennon finish out the year anyway? By your actions, and comments, you’ve already decided the Bucs should draft a QB in the first round. Why give Glennon any more when he’s as good as gone.

  26. passthebuc` Says:

    A. we won’t get the 1st over all pick.
    That will be Oakland

    B. Glennon will leave the Bux’s and be a star elsewhere where there is a coach and a line that can give him more than 2 seconds to set and throw.

    C. Lovie will be here 3 years and have a total win/lose record of 10 and 35

    D. the Glazzzzzers will hire a new regime that will make lovie look like Lombardi

  27. Skyline Crew Says:

    We are in the #4 spot. What makes you all think that we will get the #1 spot even by losing out? Good luck with that morons.

  28. Skyline Crew Says:

    Whomever we take in the draft only has 1 1/2 seasons to prove that they can play. If not we draft another QB.

  29. Frank Chimento Says:

    Lovie is a great guy… not the head coaching answer for Tampa Bay. Glennon is a great guy… not the QB of the future for Tampa Bay. The Glazers do great things in the community… not great NFL owners and not the owners for the future success of Tampa Bay. So, until some enormous changes take place, sit back, relax and get ready for Marcus Mariota since too many local Gator fans will complain about getting Jameis.

  30. Jarid Says:

    Joe wants Glennon to start?—again…. geezuz..Joe is f-ing delusional

  31. Name Required Says:

    Send in… McClown…

  32. MTM Says:

    If you consider sabotage letting Glennon throw the football. Then guilty as charged. Release the McClown.

  33. Brandon Says:

    Glennon has no trade value right now, NONE. If we were able to fetch a 3rd for him at the draft, after three games of uninspiring football, no team is going to want to spend anything to obtain that. Maybe we sucker some team into a 6th or 7th, but right now, Glennon is playing not only for his future in a Bucs uniform, but his future in the league.

  34. Nick2 Says:

    Does it really matter who starts Sunday??? Either way we have wide open receivers waiving their arms frantically 30 yards downfield only to have the ball drop 10 yards behind them.

  35. bucco bruce Says:

    McCown was the starter, hurt his hand, healed up…ready to go …Glennon aint Brady…”you play to win the game!”

  36. Couch Fan Says:

    Being a gator fan has nothing to do with not wanting a QB that has the maturity of a 10 year old. But spin your version however you like.

  37. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This almost guarantees the Bucs draft a QB. Lovie benching Glennon shows no confidence in him being the future and thinking best chance of winning is with McCown…..

  38. Skyline Crew Says:

    I guess you guys are going to pay Glennon to leave?

  39. pick6 Says:

    sadly, if glennon is not to be the guy for the bucs, that does actually mean josh mccown is the guy with a longer buc future. weird. i would say glennon missed out on reps in preseason and maybe that is a problem, but 5 weeks into your starting gig and with the preseason offense leaving with the preseason coordinator, glennon’s issues are on him and him alone at this point. he is playing himself out of the job and will be competing with the likes of mark sanchez, matt flynn, and christian ponder for journeyman gigs where something has gone wrong with the season if you see him on the field

  40. ElioT Says:

    SH*T SHOW!

    Freeman, Glennon, McCown, Glennon, Winston, Mariota, etc…

    Does it really matter?

    This franchise is so f***ed.

    Go Sucs!

  41. Buccfan37 Says:

    I still think Glennon is the best Bucs QB presently and the QB of the future right here in Tampa Bay. I don’t think Lovie will spend a high draft pick on a QB. Just my opinion, so it’s not unanimous that Glennon sucks.

  42. panhandle buc Says:

    The entire offense has taken a step back, you ever think maybe the QB Coach/OC sucks?

    The OC doesn’t understand the offense, so how can he coach it?

  43. jo_mama Says:

    If you want to draft a QB, you play glennon and hope he does great so you can trade him for value.

    Otherwise I don’t know what Lovie is thinking.

  44. Buc Fan South Tampa Says:

    DeBartolo please save us, you are our only hope.

  45. Architek Says:

    I am so F-ing tired of you whining babies about Glennon!!!!!!!

    Screw you all and you are the most hypocritical groupies ever!

    First off, idiots, it’s unfair to judge every other QB stats (good or bad) but exempt Glennon from accounting for his failures. Simms, Garcia, Leftwich, Freeman, and McCown all were highly scrutinized because of their skills limitations and you ate them alive like the Walking Dead. But this goofie – unorthodox and un-athletic heartless prototype QB plays like crap for 18 friggin games you cry injustice. F all of you and he’s costs us his share of games too in the past two years!

    Second, stupid idiots, this goof ball has no nuts to dive for one yard! One Yard!!!! And you are clamoring for that kind of leader???

    Third, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but Lovie (again good or bad) is not going anywhere anytime soon and there’s no magic reset button; L&L are not marrying Glennon so get ready to support a rookie next season punks.

    Where ever Glennon ends up I hope you follow him and watch his career as a backup!

    Dam Idiots!

  46. bucs4lyfe Says:


    the OC doesn’t throw the ball my friend sorry but the OC doesn’t have a 59% completion percentage. Reminds me of that Quarterback and OC we had a few years ago when jeff jagodzinki got fired before the season started and still we had a better offense than this and better quarterback play. sorry but glennon IS freeman was…..inaccurate and only difference Is glennon is overrated in one state!!! only tampa looks at him and see’s probowl

  47. phil Says:

    Doesn’t matter with Lovie here. We won’t win until he is gone.

  48. ddneast Says:

    The Browns game was there for Glennon to make a definitive statement that he was the QB. The line held up for most of the game and there was a semblance of a running game.
    So Glennon barely completed 50 percent of his passes, under threw a wide open Mike Evans twice and had a ghost blink off and OL’s helmet for a redzone INT.
    Sorry guys, I root for every Bucs QB and I don’t care who starts, but Glennon had a golden opportunity to put his stamp on the position and didn’t do it.
    I don’t give a damn who starts as long as they win the game.

    ^ Says the guy that FLIPS OUT when you bring up the idea of the Bucs trading back in the draft? 🙂

  50. bob in valrico Says:

    the statistic that doesnt lie is 28 touchdowns in 18 complete games.that is 1.55 td’s per game.We have to have a QB capable of at least 3 or four tds a game.
    anybody watching can see he is not improving after 18 full games.The best QB’s are scoring 4 or 5 td’s a game.Lovie owes it to team to try whatever it takes to get a win

  51. SuperSam Says:

    At this point does it really matter who starts at quarterback?? I mean cmon, we already have seen enough of Glennon to say he’s not the “future”. Its all about next year boys.

  52. bob in valrico Says:

    so if his passing isn’t good enough,and his running is pathetic the only way to justify his starting is to tank the season.Its not fair to other players on team that are still trying to win.

  53. billy buckaroo Says:

    Glennon simply does not look “focused” on the game.
    More like he is just going through the motions
    Its like a “whatever” look

    Looks like a guy with an intent to be traded.

    You watch the Brady or Manning or Rothleisburger types
    They lead the team by showing intensity for each play and even after a bad one they come back and the team knows the next play they are going to give it their all

    McCown may not be in their category as a passer or QB in general but he certainly a shows an intensity that is lacking when Glennon is in there

    Regardless it seems its time to try something to inspire this situation.
    Glennons attitude seems to have fallen.
    Maybe McCown can put a little fuel in the fire

  54. lightningbuc Says:

    “The best QB’s are scoring 4 or 5 td’s a game”



    UM, no they aren’t. Not even close. Only 8 teams are averaging more than 2 passing TDs every game.

  55. BigMacAttack Says:

    Lovie is 1-7 and at least 3 of those losses could have possibly been wins with better coaching. I like Lovie but he has sucked and not deserving of a great deal of respect yet. I think Lovie gets at least 2 years but his formula for success is anything but.

  56. Famous Jameis or Bust Says:

    If you really want to draft Winston then the Bucs have to keep losing so we get the top draft pick.

    Which QB gives us the best chance to keep losing??? Mike Glennon.

    If McCown goes in there and he plays good enough to win… then all the Bucs accomplished was losing out on Jameis Winston.

    So keep playing Glennon.

  57. BuccDeez Says:

    The only other team that needs a Qb 1st pk 1st round besides Tampa bay , is the jets. And there gonna fire Rex at the end of the season. Maybe we hire him fire L Frazier & pick JW 1st pick. Hopefully rex Will bring some talent with him.

  58. RastaMon Says:

    QB..w/ 1st pick……horsesheet….you don’t build a house by building the roof first….

  59. OneLove Says:

    @Architek One of the best posts I have read on this forum. One of the few people with common sense…. EMPHASIS on “FEW”!!!

    “It’s as simple as that” – Lovie Smith

  60. BuccDeez Says:

    No OC,
    No Qb
    No D!
    Lovie is just a coach , not Jesus. So if u were looking for us 2 resurrect, or water into wine or losing into winning. U might wanna grab a Snickers.( not goin anywhere for a while) we suck again!

  61. bob in valrico Says:

    lightning, mean, median, mode are all averages that each present a different picture.glennon is shooting himself in the foot and this was a game he should have scored 4 touchdowns.Getting the ball on minnesota 10 yardline and not
    capitalizing was a failure on his part but i will amend my statement to say the best QB’s can score 4 or 5 touchdowns in a game.

  62. Architek Says:

    You don’t but you don’t win or compete in a division with the 28th best QB in the league and the 6th or 7th best in the division.

    If you have a chance to take a franchise qb you take one!

  63. bob in valrico Says:

    one more performance measure .in his five start he has 9 touchdowns with 6 int’s.

  64. Bucfan4life Says:

    Architek you may want to consider anger management classes. You’re stating the obvious. Glennon sucks and after this season will never start another game unless the actual starting QB is hurt. The Bucs offense is pathetic so of course a change is needed at the most important position. I don’t think there is an MGM anymore (there never should have been one). Fans should only worry if the Bucs win a couple flukes down the stretch. For the first time ever I was hoping for a loss Sunday. I would rather the Bucs go 1-15 and have a top 2 pick as opposed to 3-13 and the 6th or 7th pick. Go Falcons!

  65. Mord Says:

    The horrible thing to imagine is that the Bucs could accidentally win against the Falcons, which would create support for the rationale that the coaching staff and team can adjust, and thoughts that McCown is pretty good, only to see Washngton drop a 56-3 on them in the following week.

    A uniquely frustrating brand of sucking is going to be with us for a while.

    Can’t help but wonder how much of a difference Tedford would have made. I’m reeeeeeally not sure that this crop of players could have manifested the innovative offense we thought he might bring, but thinking about the impact of that mere possibility, a very different picture of this first season starts to take shape; the defense would be on the field less, and better rested when they are because of it … Both sides of the ball benefit from the confidence and motivation of playing with a lead… Young players and FAs start to look more like they’re playing through their first steps towards greatness rather than their first steps toward revealing themselves as a bust (etc, etc) …

    … Hmmmmm. ((/dreamy music cue))

    The OC alone maybe isn’t realisticslly capable of that kind of impact, and maybe Tedford’s not that guy anyway, but a rookie NFL QBs coach thrust late into the OC role at the start of a rebuilding year with a whole new regime seems like a recipe for.. Oh, wait.. Yeah, that recipe is pretty much out of the oven now.

  66. Juice Says:

    Doesnt matter who you start @ QB, Panthers will always kick you & your fat woman’s arses anyways…
