    Mcclown might be the worst qb I’ve ever witnessed. He holds the ball around his waist like a rookie and has zero pocket awareness. The only reason he can be starting for us is Lovie wants to guarantee that first pick. I can’t see any other reason, the guy is absolutely terrible.

      Totally agree. I’m rooting for the Bucs to look good, but ultimately lose every game at this point. If those loses come from McCown making bone-headed throws we’d be embarrassed to see a rookie make, that’s just fine with me since he won’t be starting next season.

    And to think he is the best QB on the Bucs.

    We will have the 2nd pick in the draft, not the first pick. This was our only chance to win for the rest of the season as both Green Bay and New Orleans have reasons that they must win.

    Well, you know who turns the ball over less than any other QB in recent memory? Mariota.

    There’s just no getting around the fact that McCown is by far the worst starting QB in the league. If I’m Bryan Glazer, I’m just a tad furious at Licht and Lovie for convincing me to pay this guy $5,000,000 this season. I know the O-line is bad, but McCown makes them look even worse.

    I really don’t get sticking with McClown, unless Lovie really wants the #1 pick. Week, after week Lovie tells us Josh gives the team the best chance to win, yet we never win. All the stats point to Glennon being better, they’ve both only won one game. So at his presser when Lovie says Josh gives us the best chance to win, Mark, could you raise your hand and ask Lovie what he’s basing that on, cause it just isn’t true.

    Surferdudes; I agree. Mark ask him what is he saving Glennon for. We’re not going to get much for him if we trade him. Can we ind out for sure if he isn’t a back up QB or not. McCown sure isn’t and should be gone along with Keonon, Johnson, Gilkey, Goldson, Cousins, Collins, Clayborne, and about 10 other players. Include the Practice Squad too because if you haven’t called them up by now they are NFL player Squad.

    You’be heard of alligator arms? McCown has alligator hands. If you blow on them the ball will come out. He hardly gets touched and he fumbles. How many losses can be traced directly to points scored off of his turnovers. Keep that up for two more games and we will be guaranteed the first draft choice.

    I know that Lovie is loyal to a tee but enough is enough with McCown. He gives us the nest chance to win??? He is so indecisive in the pocket. Granted, Glennon may not be the long term answer and he is not as athletic but McCown is not getting it done, with or without pressure on him. We have huge receivers and he does give them many chances to win balls. If you dropped back 3 steps (All the time he has, barely) and lobs up a ball for Evans or Jackson, 8 out of 10 times, they are going to catch it. Josh said that he wants to play as long as he can help the team. He is not helping. Just let Glennon finish the season. Time for Josh to retire and be a quarterback coach or just be the backup for occasional duty. Such a shame after all the hype in the beginning.
