The question shouldn't be "is Glennon are biggest problem?" It should be "can Glennon ever become a top 10 QB in this league?" If you don't think so then the answer is obvious that you draft a guy you think can if he's available to you.
This ^^^Right now Glennon is hovering around average to above average. I don't think you can build a great defense in this current salary cap era unless you hit some home runs late in the draft like Seattle has done.
With the state of the Bucs as is, is it time to make a play for a qb? or is it time to bolster the oline and take a dominant LT? If you believe Glennon is a backup, and you go qb round 1, shouldn't logic state that the new qb is the starter? throw a rookie qb out there behind our current oline, with Dougie "0.5yards and a cloud of nothing" won't that possibly shatter the qb's confidence almost at the same percentage that he might be able to provide the spark to overcome the limitations of our offense?Do you want to take a gamble on a guy who might be the real deal or bust, and if he's the real deal, still possibly get him shell shocked behind this craptastic offense?
I rather take the gamble to improve. You can't be afraid to improve.Passing on Teddy, Manziel and Carr..fine..but passing on a Mariotta for example? Not fine in my book.Yeah Romo looks better with a better offensive line, but the Cowboys still were able to limp to wins because of Romo despite a historically bad defense last year. Steelers (Roethlisberger), Panthers (Newton), Falcons (Ryan) etc have holes on their rosters and down years, but they are still competitive. Having a top ten guy, or has shown to be a top ten guy at times keeps an NFL team competitive. Garcia was the last top ten guy along with Freeman that showed they could do it in spurts, and the Bucs were actually relevant.
Fair enough, but having a Jake Matthews type tackle wouldn't have been an improvement over Collins or Datson?I understand your point, qb has the chance to be a bigger factor in the success of the team. I'll have to defer to your knowledge of Mariotta, maybe he will be a franchise caliber pro style qb, and if he is, I'd be all for it. I just think, after watching the game, we need someone that can call a better game. A new qb with our line, and bad running game, he'll get killed out there.
