    I hope the Oline holds up for McCown and he does well.

    McCown will be a great roll model, and mentor to whoever we draft to replace him next year. Hopefully we get a draft pick for Glennon either in the off season, or draft day.

    I’m hoping for the best. Go Bucs!

    Lovie spent a year in his basement figuring out who he wanted on his staff, who he wanted to add via free agency, who he wanted in the draft, and THIS is what we have to work with? Embarrassing. I’ll take Glennon over McCown next yr, either as a starter or as a backup if we draft a QB in the first round (who will have a <50% chance of panning out regardless of what we think when we draft him). Meanwhile we'll have a mediocre Center, questionable Tackles, an old Guard… Draft OL this year, DL the next, give whomever is QB something to work with. Otherwise this exercise in futility will continue.

    Class act. Other than the bonehead plays when McCown tried to make something happen he played pretty well. But we biased fans like to focus on those. I think we all recognize that the team is much more settled than it was those first few games with McCown under center which should improve his chances to lead the team to victory. I too think he would make an ideal back-up. I’d rather see Glennon get a chance to go to a great team where he doesn’t have to be anything more than he is to win.

      Scubog, I couldn’t agree more. Glad someone else sees this. Watched the all 22 of every game this year, and other than the two admittedly terrible interceptions (one against panthers, one against teams), mccown has played pretty well, especially towards the end of games. To be honest, if not for the horrible way the rams game ended, we would have been talking about the way he drove us down the field for a game winning field goal with no timeouts.

      Glennon, as much as I have tried to force myself to like him, has gotten away with a lot of terrible throws due to his receivers making difficult catches, and a lot of defenders dropping easy interceptions. He has done some good things, bit the Cleveland game was the last straw for me. Held the ball too long, erratic accuracy down the field…. Hard to argue with lovie on this one, to be honest. I think it’s ridiculous to say Glennon can’t be an above average NFL qb, but he isn’t ready to take that step now, which is exactly what lovie said at the beginning of the year. Glennon had his chances to prove he was ready, and he failed. Hopefully mccown steps up and can be the stop gap we hoped he could be for a couple years, because mariota and Winston aren’t the answer if you ask me

    If McCown throws no picks and has no strip fumbles, plus a few 3rd down conversions, we win!
