    I never want to see Griffin step onto the field in a regular season game put him on the practice squad who cares if someone takes him we should do what the Raiders did and draft a Connor Cook type guy (if available) in the 4th round

      You absolutely nailed this one Matthew. Look in the 3rd or 4th rd for a Joe Montana type that is overlooked because of size. Develop him. However, now trade Glennon, put Griffin on the Practice squad, and go get an older journeyman QB.

    Spot on SR. Our backups are atrocious.

    Both QB’s played horribly and there is no disputing that. That being said, the WR’s catch a few balls thrown to them and they go from awful to poor. WE also have awful back up WR’s. This does not help the QB backups. IMO both positions have players that seemed to be afraid of some water on their uniform. Aside from Aguayo, very disappointing..we have lots of little sissies as backups when it rains.

    To me Mike Glennon has been the biggest disappointment this pre-season. He has regressed from his rookie year when he put up some decent statistics albeit with an ultra-conservative approach by always playing it safe. After what he put on tape these past 4 exhibition games, there are a lot of other QB’s out there better than him. No one would trade for this guy.

    As for Griffin. He has some skills that need to be developed, but from what I see he’s not a #2 at this point.

    Neither one looks like he could challenge for a starting gig in the CFL let alone this league. Right now we’re stuck with them. Dirk is like the guy seeking a date to the Prom and his only choices are on the homely side. Stop trying to tell us they look good Coach. We Bucs fans know ugly when we see it.

    Lets be honest. We have no depth at wide receiver. All preseason Gleanon has been putting the ball on the numbers and the 2nd and 3rd string WRs have proven they cannot catch. Not at all. None of them should be kept. REDDY even fumbles catching punts. These are not ready for the NFL players. There will be better WRs released when the teams cut the rosters down.

    If Gleanon was passing to Evans, Jackson, and Humphries he would have had a much better preseason!

    Not sure which games some of you have been watching, but Glennon hasn’t been “putting it on the numbers.” I don’t disagree that the WR talent is poor after the starters, but Glennon has regressed badly. He has played himself out of having any trade value. Rather than getting a solid back up’s contract he will be lucky to get a “prove it” type contract.

    Scubog, it’s uncanny but I pretty much posted the same critique of Glennon in “The Most Disappointing Bucs” before reading the one you posted here.
    Can’t say I agree with the PR assessment of Griffin’s play last night. For one thing, the pass by Griffin to Martino was very catchable and one that should be made by an NFL caliber receiver.
    Griffin seems to start out cold but as the game progresses and he gets into a rhythm, his passes and accuracy improve. Remind you of anyone?
    If I had to choose between who I was going to keep between Griffin or Glennon. I would go with Griffen who seems to have a much better feel and movement in the pocket when under duress.
    Fortunately, according to Koetter, no one will have to make that difficult decision.
    But after watching last nights game I disagree with the head honcho in one aspect. I don’t think any of the lower rung players after the first 40 or so are going to be invaluable to this team if we cut them.

    The only thing Glennon and Griffen have going for them from what I can see is they know the playbook. That’s it. As “Lovie ” would say…. ” Very disappointing”.

    In training camp last year Jameis and Mike looked about even. A year later, Jameis and Mike look nothing a like. Did Jameis get that much better or has Mike’s development fallen back?

    Both look like they have moved in opposite polar directions Kegan.

    The only reason Glennon did okay his first year is because it was his first year and after that everybody knew to blitz the walking stick. Griffin has shown nothing. Bottom line, neither of these two QB’s are worth keeping; try some others.
