      Jason Licht Calls Glennon’s Play “Outstanding”October 13th, 2014GlennonRavnesYesterday afternoon, Joe really was taken back by Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht’s analysis of Mike Glennon.Speaking on the Buccaneers Radio Network before the beating by Baltimore, Licht enthusiastically raved about No. 8 and sure made it seem like Glennon had a stranglehold on the starting quarterback job, even if Lovie Smith won’t admit it.“Glennon’s getting better and better every day in practice. And every week that he’s playing, he’s getting better. I thought he played outstanding [in New Orleans.] So this is fun to watch,” Licht said about an hour before the Bucs were trailing 28-0 to the Crows.This surprised Joe a bit because Derrick Brooks gave Glennon a “C, C-” grade earlier in the week, and former Bucs QB Shaun King had delivered a “C+.” It just goes to shows the great range in evaluating a player.(Speaking of player evaluation, Joe talked to Ravens starting center Jeremy Zuttah after yesterday’s game, and he’s very happy the Ravens evaluated him as a prime-time starter and pay him that way.)So how did Glennon perform yesterday? The stat line shows 24-for-44, with two touchdowns, an interception and five sacks taken.But the reality is Glennon was dreadful in the first half and his numbers came in what effectively was garbage time. Yes, he did good things on the field, but it’s awfully hard to grade him for yesterday’s effort.Joe will say that Glennon’s poor mobility was exposed yesterday. It really impacted the Ravens’ entire game plan, and the Bucs did little by design to keep the Ravens pass rush honest. That’s one part playcalling, and another part the limitations of the signalcaller.Regardless, the Bucs should be all-in with Glennon for the rest of the season. Nothing else makes any sense.Tom Brady and Peyton Manning can't outrun a turtle so having a mobile QB is not priority.  I would say Glennon played well considering the intense pass rush he was up against. Also, the crap play calling by Arroyo didn't help either.

      I’m not sure Licht’s talent evaluation is really something to be relying upon right now

      I am sad the Bucs passed on many of the 2014 QB’s like Carr, Teddy, and Manziel.  Hopefully they will make up for it in 2015 with Mariotta.

      He had a solid HALF a game. He didn't show up until the 3rd quarter. You know once the Raven's had given up since they already won.

      The O-Line is terrible and Glennon was getting plowed yesterday all day long… Hes a solid young quarterback and should be the quarterback to lead our team

      Glennon didn't handle the bad oline like he should have. He's had plenty of time to figure it out but he's not learning! He should be the QB to lead us to a top 3 draft pick which will replace him.
