Ludicrous Glennon Fantasies In Denver

March 10th, 2016


Cue the Mike Glennon Mob, who’s eager to free their favorite son and achieve a twisted orgasmic salvation by him shining as a starting quarterback.

Yesterday, Denver’s star general manager John Elway got kicked in the groin by losing quarterback Brock Osweiler to the Texans. Elway even had the balls to claim he only desires players who want to be Broncos, so everything there is on track. Meanwhile, Elway is the same dude who had just offered Osweiler tens of millions to lead his franchise. Didn’t he know Osweiler was bleeding orange? Talk about two-faced.

Anyway, Glennon fever is heating up in Denver.

A chief dude fanning the flames is Broncos beat writer Cameron Wolfe, who works for the Denver Post. One of his Twitterings yesterday said he’d be on the phone immediately to One Buc Palace inquiring about Glennon.

Uber-insider Adam Schefter of BSPN said on the TV airwaves that the Broncos could make a play for Glennon.

This is all fun to talk about, but there are two key points. First, there’s no way that Elway has watched film of Glennon and determined Glennon is the guy to lead him to another Super Bowl. Joe would wager just about anything on that.

Might Elway want Glennon on the cheap as a guy to compete and be a capable backup? Sure. But just kill the notion of Elway sitting in a hot tub yearning for Glennon and ways to pry him from the Bucs. That’s about as likely as Bucs cheerleaders sipping martinis and dreaming of Joe in a bathing suit.

Joe has written countless times that the Bucs should trade Glennon and take the draft pick, any decent draft pick. A good backup QB is useless to the Bucs now because they’re not Super Bowl contenders. More important, Glennon’s contract is up after this year, and Glennon is too smart to re-sign with Tampa Bay on the cheap and pass on a chance to start somewhere else.

Joe’s friend Chris Myers, the iconic FOX and former BSPN broadcaster, who has called Bucs preseason games for years, was pounding a social media drum on Twitter for Glennon yesterday. Myers claimed Glennon could be an immediate starter for five NFL teams and make them better. Joe fired back at Myers demanding names, and Myers obliged with the “Rams, Broncos, Jets, Bills and Browns.”

What a revival day for the Mob!

Of course, Joe agrees the Browns would be much better off with Glennon versus Josh McCown, but certainly not the Bills.

Regardless, don’t look for the Broncos to come calling for Glennon with anything that will move general manager Jason Licht, who seems content to let Glennon ride shotgun to America’s Quarterback for another season.

    The Mobb is ALIVE and WELL

    I’m not a big Glennon fan….but he is what THEY need. He could be their Brad Johnson. I would take Glennon before I would take Osweiler…at least you know Glennon has great work ethic and a great head on his shoulders…Osweiler cares so much about winning that he bolted from the best team in the league.

  3. JAB83 Says:

    I am not content to leave him as the back up for another year… I demand it!!! No reason to not let him walk after this season. He is the BEST AND cheapest insurance a NFL team could by at QB…

    After this year we will have had the “other back up” groomed for two seasons. The draft pick we get for himis a different kind of gamble…

  4. Bradinator Says:

    I live in Denver, and John Elway will not break the bank for Glennon. He’ll pick up a vet back up, and likely draft a QB. He’s got serious cap issues and a shiny new QB in the draft that Kubiak and Elway can build they way they want him sounds more like their style. A drafted QB at the end of Rnd 1 or 2 won’t cost that much. At this point all they need is a guy that can hand off (to Arian Foster maybe?) and not lose them a game.

  5. Wes Says:

    I don’t get it. What separates Brock from Glennon? The dude started 7 games and played okay. 10 TD 6 INT. Glennons got a full season of experience under his belt. Brock has 7 starts. Yet Brock just made huge amounts of money. You know what this reminds me of? Remember when Mcclown played well for a few games in Chicago?

  6. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    I don’t blame Osweiler for making a clean break from the Bronco’s. His value to the Texans was through the roof, plus he could start a new life, free of the countless comparison’s to Manning he would face in Denver.
    As far as Glennon goes, if we get anough for him, we should trade him.

  7. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    What was Glennon’s record with the Bucs compared to other QB’s who played during that period for the Bucs? Could he have won six games last year?

    I’m not saying MG8 is the next JW…but he’s not any worse than plenty of QB’s who are starting in this league and on the right team…like Denver…could be a winning QB ala Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson.

    I saw a talking head on the NFL net last night pointing out that teams HAVE approached the Bucs with trade offers for MG8 but the Bucs are simply happy to have MG8 as their backup. This person implied that even first round draft pics have been mentioned.

    He also mentioned that this is not really a large gamble for the Bucs. They still get their comp pick if he leaves us after next year.

    I disagree with Joe on the Bucs not being a Super Bowl teams this year. Not that I believe the Bucs are ready to win the big game…just that it’s seems absurd to me to ever write off an entire season before the first kickoff..

    If MG8 played a stretch of 4-6 games while #3 was out and he won half of them and kept us in the playoffs then that would be plenty of value.

    Before we get to the Super Bowl we first have to REACH the playoffs then we have to win a playoff game. Those are two doable goals this year and we shouldnt settle for anything less. MG8 gives us a better chance to reach those goals than some “name backup” or any rookie and certainly more than any third round draft pick would give us.

    It’s still very much a seller’s market for the Bucs when it comse to MG8. No need to settle.

  8. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Would love to see Glennon get a shot with the Broncos. Not the Browns though, that’s where QB’s go to die.

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Glennon is cheap….on his rookie contract…..we may not get a #1 or 2 draft pick for him but we could get a player we need… of these teams needing a cheap potential starter or great backup could trade a high priced player for Glennon.

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    How a bout trading Glennon for Von Miller along with switching 1st round picks…..Denver gets a QB & a better draft pick to draft another one and we get our pass rush.

  11. WalkdaPlank Says:

    The funny thing is everybody’s knock on Glennon was his W/L ratio, putting the blame on him.

    How did America’s Quarterback do? Oh, would you look at that? 6 wins. And 10 losses. Guess it’s all his fault. Funny people.

    We don’t need MG8 anymore, besides aren’t the Bucs all rah-rah about Ryan Griffin? Glennon deserves a shot somewhere else, and the Bucs could get something for him rather than lose him for nothing next year.

  12. BoJim Says:

    The Bronco’s may make us an offer for Glennon that the Buc’s can’t refuse. Yep. I like MG8 and would love to see him play for a winning team, not being wasted away like McCoy and David.

  13. D-Rome Says:

    I’d love to see Mike Glennon successful somewhere else. He’s good enough to be a starter on those five aforementioned teams and given the crazy money being thrown around for starting QBs there no reason why Mike shouldn’t be given an opportunity to earn that kind of money.

  14. BrianBucs Says:

    Poor, poor Joe. He still looks at Glennon as a threat to his crush Jameis. Shame

  15. Ben the Ga Buc Says:

    He will walk on his own if we don’t trade him between now and this time next year. By the time the draft is here, the Broncos could very well draft another QB. The getting is good right now. Glennon is a luxury the Bucs can’t afford. Let’s get something done.

  16. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    trade glennon get a 3rd round pick

  17. Jeagan1999 Says:

    It’s crazy, isn’t it? There is such a lack of good QB’s out there that guys like Brock Oswieler…who has hardly ANY real game experience under his belt….are getting $18mil a year by opposing teams!

    Look, Glennon is a decent starting caliber QB. He has a track record to look at. He has a strong arm. He throws more TD’s than INT’s. And he is still on his rookie contract which makes him a complete bargain!

    This makes MG8 attractive to other teams! I would take a 2nd round pick for him from other teams, or how about this scenario…Denver trades us their #32 selection and we swap 2nd round picks. If all we get are offers for 3rd or 4th round selections….pass! But a team like Denver might be desperate enough to pull the trigger. All it will cost them is a draft pick.

  18. Guzzie Says:

    Trade Glennon for one of Rams 2nd round picks they have 2, case keenum, enough said

  19. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    He will walk on his own if we don’t trade him between now and this time next year.

    Actually if you want this to be germane to the conversation you have to specify exactly what we would receive in return!

    MG8 can’t simply walk to another team. They would be required to provide compensation based on the league formulas. Posters here have repeatedly claimed that if MG8 stays with us next year and then walks..his new team would owe us a 3rd round pick.

    Now there is some question as to exactly how high that pick would be…if anyone knows more specific information please share…everything I’ve read here indicates it would be a 3rd rounder.

    IE…if MG8 walks next year…and why wouldn’t he…we’re not out ANYTHING unless we pass up a higher draft pick than the 3rd round.

    MG8 will make 675,000 next year…Josh McClown 5 million…Chase Daniel 5 million…Nick Foles 8 million!!! Seriously would you rather pay one of these guys ten times what MG8 earns or simply keep him this year as the cheapest and MOST EFFECTIVE alternative?

  20. BUC55 Says:


    Why do people keep calling for a Glennon trade?

    The Bucs will get a 3rd round compensatory pick for him after he leaves next year as a free agent. The only way it makes sense to trade him sooner is for a 1st round pick (which is not going to happen).

  21. thegregwitul Says:

    Regarding those five teams that Glennon could start for right away; I’d take Tyrod Taylor over Mike Glennon, but I would take Mike Glennon over Brock Osweiler, and look at the money Osweiler received from Houston.

    The other four teams (Jets, Rams, Browns and Broncos) could definitely use Mike Glennon. I don’t think he’s going to command a first round pick, but you might be able to secure a second round choice, and with the Bucs still having several holes to fill, I would make that trade in a heartbeat.

  22. Stanglassman Says:

    One reason is you would have to wait until 2018 draft to get a pick. I don’t believe it would be as high as the last pick in the 3rd round either unless he starts almost all the games.
    Lots of people don’t realize you wait 1 1/2 to get the pick. Another common mistake is thinking no State income tax is a huge incentive. Players get taxed where they play, all of them play 8 games at home (FL no tax) and 8 away (Maybe a tax State). So it’s some incentive but not as much as people like to make it.

    I’d settle for a 3rd round pick and Denver’s return man.

  24. Stanglassman Says:

    I think a 3rd (last in 3rd) would be too low also. I do think a 2nd, even if it’s the last on, would be good for both parties. Denver wouldn’t be forced to draft a QB this year. Good for the Bucs because they can keep their streak at letting a Qb go only to watch him win a super bowl for another team

  25. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I wish he would get a chance to make it good in the NFL..met him a few times, he also sat next to my son at the mall, talk to him and his buds, took pics….just really nice guy..I just hate to see him bench warming all the time..

  26. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    I hope we get some value for Glennon, but, he doesn’t fit what Kubiak is wanting to do. They were looking at Tyrod Taylor last year, and there are rumors of trading for Kap now. Glennon is nothing like those 2.

  27. Costa Rica John Says:

    I think Glennon is a great back up for the Bucs. Why not use some cash and re- sign Glennon this year. The Bucs could take the cap hit this year and tie up Glennon for 4 years. That way if Winston gets hurt we have a capable back up to keep the Bucs moving in a positive direction.

  28. Jerseybuc Says:

    Glennon is not going anywhere unless we get a 2nd round pick. We are in the drivers seat, and I agree with Myers, but I am a mobster I have to admit IF he sits and walks next year we get compensated too.

  29. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    To be honest…I might be partly to blame for this. I was on every media forum/blog I could find suggesting Denver trade to Glennon.

    Not because I like the kid, but because I wanted to build trade value and plant seeds. I figured the Broncos might not see my comments, but their fans would. And those fans would talk about it. al lot.

  30. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    I was all for jameis because he will be one of the best. But glennon is a capable starter. Denver didnt when the SB cause of peytons mediocre play. They rode their D. Give glennon that team and they will be contenders again.

  31. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Mark Dominic could have gotten a second rounder for him. Jason Licht? He’s the master of 6th and 7th rounders.

  32. Dave Says:

    I don’t think MG is anything more than average but what he has on tape is better then Brock so I could see them making a play for him

  33. carload Says:

    Napoleon Dynamite for a first rounder any day of the week.

  34. Cobraboy Says:

    Glennon is superior to any FA QB on the market, and superior to any QB in the draft pool.

    One does not have to be in the “Glennon Mob” to see how he’s a talented, tough guy.

    He played under some just awful offense coordinators, and did well under bad circumstances. How can *any* player, especially a QB, show his ability under the OC debacle of two years ago? That was a complete abortion of offensive football, yet Glennon did OK.

    I would not be surprised with a trade to Denver, because they are desperate for a QB right now. Their first would be indeed tasty, and offer a great chance to grad needed talent.

  35. Buc1987 Says:

    Twisted orgasmic salvation??

    That’s just sick Joe.

  36. R.O. Says:

    Not sure why Osweiler is such a superior talent to Glennon. If situations were switched it would have been MG8 getting the buzz…

  37. Buccfan37 Says:

    Go Bucs! Stay Glennon! People here have been pushing to trade Glennon for years. He’s still here, I hope he stays a Buc.

  38. Fsuking Says:

    Dang Joe you have been super hard on the Bucs and Now Glennon the last few days!? Calm yourself(s) down a bit. How can you say we are not super bowl contenders before the draft? Remember Carolina? The downgraded a 7-8-1 team, almost went undefeated and played for a Super Bowl. That’s one more win (Redskins) and a tie (pick one) away from what we did I last year. Plus, all indications are that we will be a much better team next year. You are being a downer Joe. Mike Ditka would say “STOP IT”

    I know that this is not a popular opinion, but I strongly believe that a team’s record is very much influenced by their strength of schedule. Not the record of the teams in the year before they play them, but rather in the year that team is on your schedule. We all know that teams change from year to year based on new coaching, free agent pickups, new draft choices, and the progressive maturation and improvement of your players. so, a team that is 10-6 one year they dropped to 4-12 in the year following due to aging, injuries, or other factors.

    In 2013, the aggregate won-loss record of the Bucs’ opponents was 147-109.
    They played only 5 games against teams with records under 0.500, and they went 4-12. That year’s schedule included NINE games against teams with at least TEN wins.
    In 2014, the aggregate won-loss record of the Bucs’ opponents was 123-130-3.
    They played 9 games against teams with records under 0.500, and they went 2-14!!
    In 2015, the aggregate record of the Bucs’ opponents was 124-132. If you take out two games vs. the 15-1 Panthers, the remaining opponents were only 94-130! They played 9 games against teams with records under 0.500, and they went 6-10 against one of the softest schedules in the league.
    BTW, the only opponent that had as many as 10 wins last year was the Carolina Panthers. The next closest were the Washington Redskins at 9-7. Atlanta and Indy wound up at 8-8, and all of the rest were under 0.500!

    So, Mike Glennon was 4-9 against the toughest schedule in the league in 2013, with much less of a supporting cast than Jameis had in 2015 against the weakest schedule in the league, and he went 6-10! Let’s see how JW3 does against the AFC West and the NFC West this year??



  40. Greg Schiano Says:

    Blah…blah…blah…Jose has his lips firmly planted on Famous Porky’s Oprah sized cheeks making his breathing impossible!! Similar to the Big Poodle & his bromance with Lovie the Loser! Illinois will be an excellent punching bag for Gentleman Jim Harbaugh’s fierce Wolverines! Being a Michigan alum….I am excited beyond measure that the best coach in football with the possible exception of the genius in New England is with the Maize & Blue! Famous Porky has stated (second off season in a row) that he is going to get in better shape so he lessens the amount of times he trips over his two left feet this season! From his mouth to God’s ears is all I have to say. As for Mike Glennon, I hope he does get a chance in Denver…..despite the fact that Elway is an idiot! We have been lucky to have Glennon and will miss him if he gets his opportunity to escape Joe’s and the Big Poodles whining!

    Are you trying to say that Glennon is a better player than Winston?

    It’s a little early to drink, don’t you think?

  42. Buc1987 Says:

    tickrdr…stop it.

  43. Buc1987 Says:

    Oh ….and Glennon’s gone and soon. Good for him, good for the Bucs.

    Good luck Mikey wherever you land. I’m sure it will be a much less boring city than Tampa though. 🙂

  44. Brent bull/buc Says:

    I heard we’d get a 3rd rd compensatory pick for him next year when he leaves. If that’s the case why trade him for anything less than a 2nd rd pick? You’d be surrendering a 3 rd pick?

  45. tickrdr Says:


    No comparison was made between MG8 and JW3. The information about their opponents and their records is fact. The information was offered as “food for thought”, and to let others develop their own opinion. I’m sure that most know all of the coaching and supporting cast members as well for both of them. While I am paid for my cardiac/medical opinion, I certainly recognize that most will not care one whit what I think about my favorite football team. But that is certainly OK with me.


  46. CrustyCrab Says:

    Why would you want Glennon to go too the Browns and not the Broncos is it because he just might get to the playoffs before our Bucs. I was taught you always wish for good things for other people but I see you are wishing bad things on Glennon.

  47. Bucsfanman Says:

    “Glennon is a luxury the Bucs can’t afford.”

    Huh?! Glennon is a luxury, PERIOD. We are fortunate enough not to have to learn that lesson, but if Jameis did get hurt….Ryan Griffin? Really?! Good-bye season.
    I’m not saying that he’s un-trade-able (is that a word?!) but it would have to make sense. A 3rd round pick is not a value when you have a 3rd round pick that’s a seasoned veteran. You’d have to give serious consideration for a 1st or 2nd. Plus, you may be able to address that need next year with a veteran AND a draft pick.

  48. Dom Says:

    Trade em! I’d be happy with a 3rd, draft another pass rusher on top of the one we should draft in round 1 or 2

  49. ToesOnTheLine! Says:

    No orgasmic whatever Joe said here. I simply like Glennon and think he’s going to be a solid NFL starter on some team with a more talented supporting cast than the Bucs currently have. I would like to see him stick around another year, but I also hope he gets his chance to make his doubters and detractors look foolish (which they will if MG lands on the right team). Denver would be a good spot for him IMO. I think he is better than the kid in Buffalo too…and Brock (though O still think the Texans draft Hackenberg if he’s there when they pick day one).

  50. tgregs Says:

    Well since Joe is 1 for 897 on QB evaluations my hopes run high

  51. James Walker Says:

    We need to get value for Glennon. Letting him walk is just asinine.

  52. Buccfan37 Says:

    My early season prediction is the Bucs will improve on last years wins.

  53. Rod Munch Says:

    I’d take Glennon over Osweiler, Glennon has a track record on a pretty awful team and that track record is better than Brock’s. I was never a big believer in Glennon, but in that he isn’t a future superstar, he can however be a starting QB in the league – that’s why he has value. The downside is the one year on his contract, does someone trade with the idea of signing him or seeing what he can do? The fact Osweiler got $72-mil, to me I think that makes Glennon look much much better. However it would require another team be as dumb as Houston, and I’m not sure if outside of Cleveland that exists.

  54. MadMax Says:

    Somebody want to explain this “compensatory” pick stuff a little? We used a 3rd on him, and then if we let him walk next year, we’ll get a 3rd for him? That makes no sense.

    All I know about “compensatory picks” is what I heard on the radio a few days ago in that they apply the following season/year, not the current year.
