Glennon Rises; Aguayo Falls

August 28th, 2017

“Your time is here, my son.”

Joe loved grabbing takeout from Abe’s Place with a side of kimchi from Poke Cafe to watch the Bears-Titans preseason game over the weekend.

What could beat old fashioned Mike Glennon-Roberto Aguayo drama?

Hats off to Glennon, who won the Bears starting gig with a masterful performance against a good Titans team — on the road.

Glennon engineered a 96-yard opening drive, converting through the air on 3rd-and-9, 3rd-and-7 and 3rd-and-8 along the way. He also threw a perfect fade route in the end zone that resulted in a pass interference call. And on the next play, he threw a touchdown off play-action. In between, Glennon was victimized by a bad drop and made a precision completion under pressure that went viral on social media.

Good for Glennon. Joe can’t wait for the Bucs’ home opener against the Bears on Sept. 17. Joe wants Kwon Alexander to get through on a blitz.

(Fun/interesting fact shared during the Titans-Bears telecast, Chicago was the best in the NFL last year on 3rd-and-short, 4th down attempts and goal-to-go situations. Who would have thought?)

As for Aguayo, well, his death bells starting ringing when Connor Barth drilled a 41-yard field goal. Aguayo was given a shot at a second-half extra point and converted. But he is surely soon to be with a new team or unemployed.

    Ironic Roberto couldn’t beat out Barth, the guy we could have kept instead of flushing away picks on kicker. What a stupid (oh, i mean “BOLD” move.)
    Good for Glennon,but its only a matter of time before they let Tribisky play)

  2. cmurda Says:

    Aguayo is done. His best chance is a team that has their kicker get injured but,even then, a better kicker should be waiting for the phone call.

  3. Mike Johnson Says:

    Look for the grand opening of..Roberto’s Deli…near your city soon!

  4. mike n Says:

    i think roberto is done for the year. some good kickers have been out a year. Hopefully he catches on with someone after the season and he get comfortable and wins a job next august. Lots of kickers struggle early and put it together later.

    Light is so Bold

    MGM reunion time!

    Really happy for Glennon, but still want him to lose to the Bucs.

  7. Howard Cosell Says:

    With respect to Aguayo:

    It’s sad, so sad
    It’s a sad, sad situation
    And it’s getting more and more absurd

  8. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Bold n Tricky Licht, when you expect him to zig he zags and passes on 10 quality RBs to get his guy that nobody wanted

  9. mike n Says:

    Week 1… cutler after 3 weeks of practice.
    week 2…. glennon
    week 3 …. Bradford…. I know in the past we have let crap qbs light us up, but this sets up nice. Lets start 3 and 0!!!!!!!

  10. unbelievable Says:

    Imagine all the headache and heartache we could have avoided if we had just kept Connor Barth…. Or Matt Bryant….


  11. Jerry Tidwell Says:

    I have never understood what the Buc’s , Jason Licht’s , issue was with Connor Barth. Is he the best? No. But certainly better than average And no drama.

  12. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Roberto Flamingo will be fine joe……………..just fine……..

  13. Pelbuc Says:

    Before we get giddy, Bucs have historically underachieved against bad QBs. Even last year, Bucs managed do to lose at home against Case Keenum.

  14. unbelievable Says:


    what do running backs have to do with Mike Glennon, who was drafted by a different regime years ago? Or Agauyo, who was taken in a completely different draft year?

    Have you been spending too much time with tmax?

  15. Trubucfan22 Says:

    So if Aguayo converted his only kick, how did he “fall” like the title suggests? I get that Aguayo will likely be the guy let go, but in this game he didn’t “fall”.

  16. BartButtPlug Says:

    The uniforms are a league worst. Please change the uniforms.

  17. BurgDweller Says:

    I’m beginning to wonder if Roberto could even get a gig in Canada or Arena league at this point. I hope he has a backup plan.

  18. Capt.Tim Says:

    Wish Glennon and Roberto both nothing but good luck.
    Hope they both do well, except against us

  19. passthebuc Says:

    He is not done yet, Probably go to Canada or better yet to the arena where he can hone his talent.

  20. Rod Munch Says:

    Roberto just needs to take a year off, then go to camp with a team like Indy that has a dome and he’ll be fine. If not it will be one of the more baffling falls to nothingness ever seen in football. It’s all in his head – and he needs to get on Xanax or something and he’ll be good to go. Unless he was on Xanax already – in that case you need to get off of it.

    Also I’d hire Doug Williams to do something for you – anything – just request of you pay him for something he removes the voodoo curse he once had on the Bucs and I guess stuck around in Roberto’s locker.

  21. Rod Munch Says:

    I didn’t see this weeks game yet but watching on Gamepass I saw last weeks Glennon’s start and he looked fine – it’s all fake news media hype saying he was terrible. The guy is playing on a team with no WRs and everything was, by design, short. On those throws he was showing good zip and placement. He will lose his job because they drafted the rookie, but I think he’ll be starting for someone again next year. A big tall QB with a good arm who doesn’t make a ton of mistakes will play in the league for a long time – I just wonder if he’s going to have a Steve Deberg type of career where everywhere he goes they draft a new guy yet he still plays 15 years when it’s all said and done. I wish him well unless he’s playing us – then I hope he throws 6 picks all returned for TDs.

  22. Roy T. Buford Says:

    The Bucs really need a good kicker though. I think maybe they should trade up and get a real NCAA stud…someone who can hang around for 15 years, a sure bet. No competition needed, just anoint the guy as the starter and work on other needs.


  23. Ndog Says:

    Bart our uniforms are unique not cookie cutter like 99 % of the other teams. They are one of the best in the game hands down.

  24. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Ndog…totally agree. I don’t want to hear about Arena league and clock radio numbers anymore. The uni is awesome.

  25. darin Says:

    It was a good game by Glennon. He lost his best receiver in the game tho. They arent exactly loaded to begin with. Tough break for glennon there. Im rootin for him. It wont last long tho. One bad game n the calls will be loud! Maybe week 2 when we shut him down will be his benching. As for aguayo he is toast. Cant kick without confidence while facing pressure. I wont be rooting for him. Go Bucs

  26. Jim Says:

    Jason Licht is in a no-win situation. If Aguayo becomes a good kicker, he’s an idiot for cutting him. If Aguayo can’t make it in the NFL, then he’s an idiot for picking him in the second round. Or I’m the idiot for watching the Bucs.

  27. Poor Glennon Says:

    Glennon is basically auditioning for the 2018 season. Tough spot because the Bears are horrible. They’ll be riding Howard like Secretariat. The kid will get a shot and be a TO machine. They may someday refer to the rebuild season (2017). As the “the Glennon season”

  28. Sierra119 Says:

    Geez, get over it already. The Patriots gave a second round pick for Kony Ealy and a third rounder, then waived him after couple of months. The player the Chiefs took with our original third round pick is also gone. Get off Licht’s a$$ for crying out loud.

    All that matters is wins. We’ve gotten better each year, that’s a mathematical fact. He’s doing something right, so lighten the heck up and move on why don’t ya.

  29. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Agreed Ndog. The unis are unique and are one of the best in the league. They are much better than either of the previous versions.

  30. Buc1987 Says:

    Ugliest uniforms in the NFL.

  31. BringBucsBack Says:

    Sorry Sierra, one can make an argument that any FOOTBALL player is worth a 1st, 2nd, 3rd (etc) round pick; it could be justified. However, a SOCCER player is NEVER, EVER worth a second round pick in the NFL, especially when your team hasn’t won anything in a decade and a half. Rob A. was arguably the worst pick EVER! That can’t be forgiven or at least requires a great deal of success, not just improvement, to counteract the absolute absurdity of the Rob pick.
