Re: Re: Glennon is on pace to shatter many Bucs rookie records


OK so some people are complaining that Glennon is not a gunslinger.  You do realize there are negatives to being a gunslinger right?  He currently has 8tds to 3 ints.  If he had a gunslinger mentality he would probably have 10-12 tds, but he would also have 10-12 ints.His current stats project (over a 16 game season) to almost exactly the same as Freeman's record breaking year.  The stats people used to justify a 4th year pro as a franchise QB are no longer good enough for a rookie only a year later.                                                                          comp %  td  int  yards  yards/attempt    ratingFreeman (2012)                                                  54.8      27  17  4065        7.3                81.6 Glennon (2013 projected over 16 games)          60.3      26  10  3728        5.7                83.1

The bottom line is at some point Glennon is going to have to attempt to complete difficult passes in order for his team to win a lot of games. As we've seen so far this season, you can't win playing it safe.
