    I think this is a wise move from Lovie’s standpoint and it also bodes well for the fans that want to keep the 1st overall pick in the draft. McCown and Glennon are equally terrible. However, by sticking with the veteran it gives the impression Lovie is still trying to win this season while he knows as well as anyone he hasn’t increased the chances of winning a game and losing the top draft spot by starting McCown.

      Pink,

      After a successful stint opining at PR, you have a future in politics! Have you ever heard of Three-card monte? lol.

    I have no expectations anymore so I support this as it appears this will be our best chance to lose since McCown will be sack focused versus throwing focused.

    My guess is that they want to trade Glennon before the draft and are afraid of him looking worse, which would decrease his value to potential trade partners.

      Yah, they want to dump him like they dumped Bennett. We need a O.L. BEFORE a new Q.B.

    McCown gives them the best chance to win. We’ve seen Glennon for a great part of two seasons – and we’ve seen enough. Finish the season w/ McCown, get a new OC, draft OL, draft QB, fix OL…..bring on 2015.

    Who cares who starts the rest of this year. It’s next season I’m worried about.

    Finally, a move by Coach Smith I agree with. Why jeopardize the opportunity to draft Marcus Mariota by playing the better QB now?

    Exactly! Why mess with a winning formula? Oh Wait…

    Totally agree Buc-up. Not playing Glennon to finish out the season confirms to me that he’s not really considered the “QB of the future” here. McCown could serve as a very high priced back-up for our next “savior”. Might be able to get a mid round draft pick for Glennon.

    Glennon would be a sitting duck with our porous offensive line.. Why risk damaging his trade value??

    McCown vs Derek Anderson it wasn’t a fun game to watch the first time and I don;t expect any different. This game is about as exciting as Joe Ferguson with Bucs vs Rusty Hilger with Raiders go at it

      Well, they promised us no blackouts so the’re forcing us to watch it. Ha Ha. We need a new O.L. before a new Q.B.
