“I Wasn’t Really Worried About That”

November 4th, 2015


Yesterday’s NFL trade deadline also could be known as Mike Glennon Day.

So Joe asked Glennon today about it.

The Bucs’ backup quarterback, who is likely better than 20 percent of NFL starters, is often talked about as the Buccaneers most valuable trade commodity. Rightfully so.

But Glennon said he wasn’t glued to his cell phone leading up to yesterday’s 4 p.m. leaguewide trade deadline.

“No. I wasn’t really worried about that,” Glennon said, “just worried about this week and the rest of the year.

Joe does not Glennon was at least keeping track of NFL activities on his day off. Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, told Joe that he didn’t know Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt was fired yesterday until Mike Glennon told him.

    He wasn’t worried about it, because he knew he wasn’t going anywhere because he knows he’s worth mre to this team than a 7th round draft pick which is all we would’ve gotten for him

    Joe’s, the fact that you even floated the idea that we could get a second rounder for him is cringeworthy

  2. Another J Says:

    It would have made no sense to trade him…

    MG sticking like glue. Apparently the market was iffy and Bucs holding their asking price screaming get out of here with your low ball BS offers. Makes me happy for now. It’s possible nobody wanted him, thinking MG not worthy of the price. All the trade talk, yada yada but he’s still here.

  4. Pick6 Says:

    he’s more valuable in the offseason. he can’t help a team much this year, and the market for him isn’t fully developed because some of the teams who could use his talents are still entertaining delusions that they have a solution at the QB position. by the offseason the jets will realize they can’t build a contender around ryan fitzpatrick, the texans will be completely over brian hoyer, the browns will know if johnny football is worth waiting for, and the rams and eagles will know all they need to know about the guys they traded for last year. even teams like the cardinals and broncos could be looking to the trade market as they think about succession plans for their current franchise QBs

    he is not going to return to tampa in 2017 to settle in as a career backup to jameis, so it comes down to how valuable 1 year of his service as a backup QB is vs 4 years of the best defensive player we can nab in round 3, 4, or 5 (that’s the range i think he will end up drawing in trade)….i think you have to deal him to the highest bidder by draft day, unless the highest bidder is a 6th or 7th rounder

  5. Pick6 Says:

    most midseason QB acquisitions go very poorly. josh freeman to the vikes, carson palmer to the raiders, and matt cassell to the cowboys come to mind from recent years

    Joe needs a proofreader

  7. Buc Neckid Says:

    Marcus Mariota = Coach Killer 🙂

    I’m available for proofreading, 50 bones an article… Let me know.

    Did you mean to write?

    Joe does not Glennon was at least keeping track of NFL activities on his day off.

    Or should this have been?

    Joe does not KNOW IF Glennon was at least keeping track of NFL activities on his day off.

  10. The Buc Realist Says:

    Cannot wait until the NFL draft were Joe will once again predict and beg for the demise of MG8!!!!

  11. PRBucFan Says:

    They weren’t going to trade him this year.

    Next year I would bet on it.

    He is our security blanket in case JW gets hurt while Ryan learns the system for another year.

  12. BucFan20 Says:

    Nobody knows for sure what Glennon will or will not do. Made the right offer he may stay. He could be happy as the long term backup and collect his money. None of us know. Well except our couple resident experts.

  13. Getaclue Says:

    I think there could be some teams like the Broncos that would look at him in the offseason, Arizona, some of these teams w a qb long in the tooth

  14. PRBucFan Says:

    Rofl No that is incorrect.

    He is a competitor and wants his shot to start in the league.

    Do you know how pitiful what you said sounds?

    The Bucs will not let it get to that point where he can choose anything. He will get moved in a trade so that they get something rather than nothing when he walks.

  15. BucFan20 Says:

    Do you know how stupid you sound? We have already been told they could have moved him and they refused! They want him here for some reason or he would be gone. He also knows where he stands as a starter. Does he take the chance again with another team to wind up on the bench?

  16. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Pick6 nailed it! MG8’s value will peak after this year, during the off season.

    Many NFL pundits believe teams will be interested in a one year audition from a proven NFL QB. Whether he’s better than 20% or more or less, there are plenty of people like Chucky who believe MG8 is a player in this league.

    And so the team that gets him will get an INCREDIBLE bargain!!!$675,000 to see him for a year in their system. That’s about tenth of what “star” players like Josh McCown pull in. MG8 is a no brainer financially!!! One year at $675,000!!!!

    The only cost to the franchise getting him will be the draft pick they give up.

    50% of NFL draft picks are busts unless it’s a very high first rounder. We’d in fact be better positioned to just keep MG8 for another year at the $675,000 even when we get nothing for him. Yes a solid backup for #3 next year is critical since we now believe the team is improving and SHOULD make a playoff run next year.

    We also do not know how Licht might package the deal. He could add some players to sweeten the pot.

    Anybody who would trade MG8 for less than a 2nd rounder or a great package is wasting a great asset. A solid backup who knows our system, our players and coaches at just $675,000 for next year is worth FAR more than a 3rd round draft pick.

  17. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    It makes no sense to keep Ryan unless we are trading Glennon….even now, unless we think someone would put Ryan on their 53 roster….it makes little sense not to put him on our practice squad.
    HeII, if Ryan is that good, maybe we should have traded him!!!

    Hey Mikey :

    Stay-ay (ohhhhh) just a little bit longer
    Please please please please please tell me that you’re gonna

    –Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs 1960

    I still think if the team wasn’t still in the chase, they should have traded him to the Titans they seem to need a quality QB!

  19. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    We can see you’re not superstitious. To smile about the Titans woes may seem satisfying since it’s your hated MM…but cheering injury is never a good thing.
    Fameis is not invulnerable. I hate to see any player go down. Well not any…I wouldn’t mind some like Greg Hardy go down.

  20. Pick6 Says:

    as far as our 2016 and beyond backup goes, isn’t that what retreads and failed starters are for? heck, maybe josh mccown can have an encore here at 20% of his previous price. after the beating he has taken the last 2 years, he might be ready to sport a hat and a clipboard and just watch greatness being born.

  21. tickrdr Says:

    Only because you all love stats so much:

    After SEVEN games as a rookie in the NFL:

    JW3: 123 of 210 (58.6%) for 1648 yards, with 10 TDs and 7 INTs (two pick6’s)

    MG8: 154 of 248 (62.0%) for 1535 yards, with 11 TDs and 4 INTs.

    The Bucs with Glennon scored only 153 points in those seven games.
    The Bucs with Winston have scored 163 points in those seven games, but he also gave back 14 points with TWO pick6’s.

    But we all know that Glennon had an easier schedule, a better offensive line, a better running game, better receivers, and a beeter offensive coordinator too!


  22. BucFan20 Says:

    You do realize just about everyone here has deemed Glennon a “career backup”? And also a failed starter!! Why replace him if they can keep him if they want?

  23. cmurda Says:

    Jeez, the grammar teachers are in full effect. Relax. The attraction to the site is that Joe doesn’t pull punches and he’s (they are) human. Relax. Was it that hard to figure out that Joe was saying – Joe does not believe that Glennon…..

  24. Buc1987 Says:

    StPeteBucsFan…where in my post does it say that I’m “cheering injury”?

    I’m simply stating that Glennon is a better QB than Mariota injured or not.

  25. BucFan20 Says:

    It is an easy sentence to figure out.”Joe does know” . If Glennon was not paying attention how could Glennon tell Winston what happened?

  26. Santos Says:

    Trickdr u forgot to mention those stats came mostly in garbage time…. Those offenses could not put up points until it was too late, minus maybe two games, Glennon is a back up plain to see.

  27. Costa Rica John Says:

    I liked Glennon as our QB when he started for the Bucs. The difference I see with Winston is he moves better in the pocket so takes a lot less sacks. Winston motivates the players around him to step up their games. It shows on the field. Glennon would be smart to stay here and be a career backup. He doesn’t get hit and earns a ton of cash even at league minimum. If Winston ever does go down he will step into a great situation much like all those Tom Brady back ups…….Go Bucs!!!!!!
