Touch deep ball to Evans down the sideline. Perfect crossing route to Murphy in stride. Timing and anticipation out route to ASJ before he made his break. Stick throw to Jackson for the TD. Other

I'm on board so far this season. I see no reason to go back to McCown unless Glennon regresses. If he continues to play decent this season then the Bucs likely won't be in a position to grab the top

Nice try Mike Glennon.

Rotoworld:

Coach Greg Schiano calls Mike Glennon someone he'd like to have as his quarterback for a "long time."

"If he stays on this trajectory, he's a guy you'd like to have as your quarterback for a long time," was Schiano's full quote. Glennon hasn't been a box-score world beater, but has done everything the Bucs have asked of him and more, managing the game and popping big plays when needed. He's certainly an improvement over Josh Freeman. Glennon is the favorite to be under center in Tampa Bay in 2014, but that could change if Schiano is fired. The Bucs are going to be in position to select a franchise quarterback in May's draft.

At this point I think the Bucs stay with Glennon in 2014 and go a different direction in the first round. I personally don't like any QB in this draft better than a 2nd year Glennon. There isn't an RG3 or Luck in this draft, so Bucs should just stay with Glennon. However, I wouldn't be surprised if they target a 2nd-4th round backup QB.

Mike Glennon completed 22-of-41 passes for 219 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in Tampa Bay's Week 17, 42-17 loss to the Saints.

After being selected with the No. 73 overall pick in April's draft and sitting behind Josh Freeman for the first three weeks of the season, Glennon was thrown into the fire in Week 4. He started the final 13 games of the season and showed more good than bad. Glennon completed 247-of-416 passes (59.3 percent) for 2,608 yards (6.2 YPA) and a 19:9 TD:INT ratio. You really have to like the low interception figure. Considering he really only had Vincent Jackson to throw to for much of the season, it was an impressive rookie year for Glennon. The Bucs can build around him by getting Doug Martin and Mike Williams back healthy and adding another receiver to the mix. Glennon will be a back-end QB2 in 2014 fantasy.

I know he lacked weapons, but the combination of 59.3% completion percentage and 6.2 YPA is pretty bad. Can anyone name a QB who put up numbers like that in a large first season sample size who went on to be a good NFL QB?

Slightly lower completion percentage, slightly higher YPA.

Manning's Net Yards/Attempt was 13th his rookie season. Glennon's is 38th (aka "last").

"Impressive" seems like quite a stretch. With Schiano gone, his dynasty value takes somewhat of a hit.

Pretty good example. Is that it, one guy has had similar numbers as a rookie and gone on to be great, and that one guy happens to be in the discussion for being the best QB of all time? I think it's pretty safe to say Glennon won't follow that career arc.

Rotoworld:

Bucs coach Lovie Smith praised Mike Glennon's "strong arm and pocket presence" at Lovie's introductory press conference Monday.

Although Glennon was easily the NFL's best rookie quarterback during the 2013 season, questions remain whether he's a long-term solution for the Bucs. Glennon just turned 24 in December. He finished his first year with a 59.4 completion rate, 19:9 TD-to-INT ratio, and 6.3 yards-per-attempt average. In all likelihood, Glennon will have to "compete" for a starting job in 2014 training camp, though he's likely to enter as the clear favorite.

Tedford, Frazier share visions for Bucs schemes

By Roy Cummings | Tribune Staff

Excerpt:

Tedford’s first impression of Glennon was positive, as well, and while he isn’t ready to ordain him as the Bucs’ starter for 2014, it is obvious he sees some staring-caliber qualities in the rookie.

“I think he’s got a lot of poise in the pocket,’’ said Tedford, a 25-year coaching veteran who is making the jump from the college ranks to the NFL for the first time in his career. “And he doesn’t get frustrated in the pocket. He’s pretty smart with the football. When things aren’t there, he’ll throw the ball away and he makes good decisions. And good decisions come in many forms, whether you’re trying to complete a pass, throw the football away, manage the clock, whatever it may be. “Physically he brings some real positives, but I also think there are some things he can improve on, and I think he realizes that. I think he understands what his limitations are and that we can improve on that in the weight room with strength and conditioning. And I think there are some quarterback fundamentals that we can help him with.”

Glennon replaced Josh Freeman as the starter in Week 4 and went on to complete 247 of 416 passes (59 percent) for 2,068 yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

A third-round draft pick out of North Carolina State, Glennon produced an 83.9 passer rating that was the best among all rookie quarterbacks last year, though some think he’ll be limited in the future by a lack of athleticism.

Tedford isn’t so sure. He has developed six quarterbacks who were selected in the first round of the NFL draft and thinks Glennon has the ability to get out of the pocket and change the launch point of his throws.

“You don’t want to be a sitting duck in one spot all the time,’’ Tedford said.

Tedford saw evidence Glennon was a leader in the locker room and the huddle.

“When you’re a rookie, a backup and then you move into that (starter’s) role, it’s hard to grab the reins and do that,” Tedford said. “But my understanding is he’s a very well-respected guy in the locker room and I think that will continue to get better. The more you do it, the more you feel this is you’re team and the more leadership you can provide.’’

Top 30? Easily. Top 20 IMO. Probably never more than FF backup, but I think he keeps the job and does alright with it.

Good article. I hope he gets another shot. I don't mind some veteran backup/competition, but I'd rather the Bucs' not try to break in another rookie QB with the veteran presence already in place on this team.

Please do not take the 4th QB off the board with the 7th pick.

Just checked the FBG dynasty rankings. Consensus of several rankings updated within the past 4 weeks has Glennon at QB #26. But I personally value the rankings of Bloom and Harstad the most among that group, and they have him at #30 and #29, respectively.

Coach Lovie Smith said he would consider drafting a quarterback at No. 7 overall.

Smith has not gone overboard with praise of Mike Glennon since arriving in Tampa. "Mike did some good things. But he did some good things as a rookie," Lovie said. "To say right now that Mike is the answer and he's our quarterback of the future and we're going to build around him and give him a 20-year contract right now, you're not there." The coach went on to say that if a player he considers a franchise quarterback is available at No. 7, he'd give a lot of thought to pulling the trigger.

Bucs not naming Mike Glennon starter

Aaron Wilson

Though Mike Glennon ended the year as Tampa Bay's starting quarterback, new general manager Jason Licht is not ready to give him the starting quarterback job.

“New coach, new regime, you can’t just hand the keys over and say this guy is our starter," Licht said, via the Tampa Tribune. "You have to see what he is, and competition drives the best out of everybody. So, that’s what we’ll be looking for."

Licht added that the Buccaneers will look for a veteran quarterback to add to the roster.

In 13 games, Glennon completed 59.4 percent of his passes for 2,608 yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Bucs' Mike Glennon to face veteran competition at QB

By Chris Wesseling

Around the League Writer

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith gushed about quarterback Mike Glennon at his introductory press conference in early January.

Not long after, new general manager Jason Licht offered further praise for the 2013 third-round draft pick.

It has become evident since then, however, that the new Bucs regime isn't quite sold on Glennon as the long-term solution.

"To say right now that Mike is the answer and he's our quarterback of the future and we're going to build around him and give him a 20-year contract, we're not there," Smith said recently, via The Tampa Tribune. "I like him as one of our quarterbacks right now, but we're going to have at least four in camp and at least one (veteran) will be in the mix. And then you just let it all play out."

Smith had previously stated the Bucs will consider a quarterback at No. 7 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft if there is a franchise-caliber signal caller available.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported just days ago that Josh McCown and Shaun Hill are realistic options in the veteran role that Smith referenced.

Whether it's McCown, Hill or a highly touted rookie, Glennon will have stiff competition for the starting job in 2014.

Did we all jump the gun on Glennon's accelerated development last November? We'll have a better answer if he's still QB1 on the depth chart coming out of training camp.

The latest "Around The League Podcast" picks the biggest free agent bargains and plays the revolutionary game: "Get my lunch."

Rotoworld:

Bucs agreed to terms with QB Josh McCown, formerly of the Bears, on a two-year, $10 million deal.

McCown is leaving quarterback whisperer Marc Trestman behind for a chance to compete for a starting job. New Bucs coach Lovie Smith has never been one for young players, and will likely give McCown every opportunity to unseat Mike Glennon. McCown's play as a 34-year-old journeyman was one of the best stories of the 2013 season, but a feat he's going to have major trouble repeating without Trestman's guiding hand. New Bucs OC Jeff Tedford is a quarterback guru in his own right, but has never coached at the NFL level. McCown is worth rooting for, but there's major bust potential here.

Glennon, meet the bench

we'll see. Wouldn't be surprised in the least if Glennon wins the job or McCown struggles so much that Glennon is the starter by mid-season.

right, we'll see. Glennon was a Schiano man, and reports out of Tampa are saying Lovie wants to do a face lift. Conservatively at least a 50% or more roster turnover. I wouldn't be surprised to see him cut or buried as the 3rd QB.

Rotoworld take:

Asked if Josh McCown would be his quarterback for the 2014 season, Bucs coach Lovie Smith replied "yes, he is."

There isn't going to be any competition with second-year pro Mike Glennon. Turning the keys over to a 34-year-old journeyman who's made seven starts since 2007 isn't exactly an orthodox move, but the Bucs are going all in on 2014. Smith has never had much patience for young players, and Glennon cratered down the stretch as a rookie after getting off to a promising start. There's still a high-percentage chance Glennon makes starts this season, however.

This offseason just keeps getting better and better.

Josh has never been a starter material, and Mike showed he can do pretty good. Sooo TB running 600 times this year?

Bucs GM Jason Licht insists the team will have a quarterback competition.

"Somebody has to take the first rep," Licht said. "It’s going to be Josh McCown. But the keys haven’t been completely handed over to him." Coach Lovie Smith declared McCown the starter shortly after his signing, but Licht is trying to keep the door open for second-year pro Mike Glennon. It's understandable, but all signs point toward McCown leading a veteran-laden squad that's looking to compete in 2014.

Mike Glennon’s going to keep competing for starting job

Posted by Darin Gantt on April 8, 2014, 2:21 PM EDT

New Bucs coach Lovie Smith made it clear the first time he was asked that Josh McCown was his starting quarterback.

But the guy he replaced said he still thinks he has a chance to compete.

Last year’s starter, Mike Glennon, said he appreciates Smith being up-front but isn’t going to back down.

“He just said, ‘to start out, there’s got to be a person to start that goes out with the first group first and that person is Josh,”’ Glennon said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “Lovie said to me and to the team yesterday the best players are going to play. And I don’t think that’s any different for the quarterback position.”

They’re so adorable when they’re young.

McCown was given a $10 million contract for a reason, and it wasn’t to push the third-round pick who posted a 4-9 record playing for a shipwreck of a team.

The 34-year-old McCown is a proven commodity to Smith, and will be able to help him stabilize one position while he brings a new philosophy to Tampa.

Glennon’s not without promise, as he played acceptably well at times last year. But he hasn’t played well enough or long enough to convince many that he should be starting over McCown.

@NFLSTROUD @TomWJones how is it Mike Glennon was the best rookie quarterback last year and now he doesn't exist?

New regime. New OC. Being the best rookie QB last year isn't exactly something to write home about. I do think they should have given him another shot though. Maybe they will?

Glennon plans to compete with McCown for Bucs' starting QB job

Rick Stroud

Excerpt:

TAMPA — Mike Glennon said he received a call from coach Lovie Smith shortly after the Bucs signed Bears free agent QB Josh McCown last month.

"He just said, 'to start out, there's got to be a person to start that goes out with the first group first and that person is Josh,' " Glennon said.

After Glennon went 4-9 as a rookie and throwing 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions, the Bucs signed the top available free agent quarterback. While it looks as though he might be headed back to the bench, Glennon said Tuesday he plans to compete with McCown and could win the job.

"Lovie said to me and to the team the best players are going to play," Glennon said. "And I don't think that's any different for the quarterback position."

The Bucs signed McCown to a two-year, $10 million contract and could add a quarterback in the draft next month.

A third-round pick from North Carolina State last year, Glennon would've been the returning starter in 2014 had coach Greg Schiano not been fired after only two seasons.

"I think there were a lot of things I did good," Glennon said. "There's definitely some things I can work on but I think overall I played well for the situation at hand and something to really build on. Some things I have to work on? Just continuing to develop as an NFL quarterback and maybe make some better decisions here and there, work on my feet, work on throwing under pressure — all the things that all NFL quarterbacks are working on."

Whatever round they come in, a near full year of starting for a rookie QB is worth its weight in gold, especially if he is a guy with some ability like Glennon.

Really liked Glennon last year - was surprised they picked up McCown - even more shocking is that some people think they will select a QB - high.

But it's on Glennon. If he is as good as some of us think - he will outplay others and earn the starting gig.

NO excuses.
