    Just don’t see Glennon worth a one or two unless it’s a bottom round two. I just don’t think there is that much interest in the guy as a starter.

  2. 2


    I agree with you jme0151. I don’t think there are to many other people out there who don’t outside of the Glennon mob who used to swoon over him as a QB.
    I was surprised to see the Texans throw all that money away on a QB with seven pro games under his belt. although it didn’t cost them any draft picks.
    I guess they forgot how to spell Matt Cassell.
    Still, some teams get deperate for a QB at this time of year.
    Would be great if the Bucs could get a third round pick and a veteran player who could start for them this year, much like the Patriots did with their DE they traded to the Cards.

    Makes no sense we carried 3 QB’s on the active roster last season if we weren’t plainning to trade Glennon or the other back up.

  4. 4


    Funny,….don’t think there is that much interest as Glennon a starter….frankly, I really don’t know how much interest there is. But I find it funny that we think we know that these teams really think of him. We will see. And if I were to ask someone what they think, I would ask SR or Mark…they probably would be the most accurate, behind Licht and such.

    1. 4.1


      Guys, there is a lot of interest for Glennon from places that need QB’s. He’s a proven commodity that is still developing.

  5. 5


    As I have often reminded my fellow posters; Richie McKay got a first round pick for Craig Erickson. Of course, we also gave up a first round pick for Jack Thompson. I’m not suggesting that Glennon would bring such a bounty, but I don’t think a second round choice is totally out of the question. Third stringer, Ryan Griffin was kept on the roster for a reason.

  6. 6


    Glennon will be traded on draft day. Horse is right, they picked up that kid from N.O., and kept him on the roster knowing Glennon walks next year if not traded this year. As much as they crow about Mike, does he really fit Koetter’s plan on offence? We want Winston to be more aggressive throwing the ball down field, we want more explosive plays. Does that sound like Capt check down? Should we lose Jameis for more then 2 games, the ship will still sink with Glennon at the helm.

  7. 7


    Glennon would be fine in there if something happened to Winston- now that they actually have an O-line that can function… In all fairness, it wasn’t easy to throw down field w/ that blocking, and the playcalling from the novice OC didn’t help in ’14

  8. 8


    As far as I see it,you can’t argue with 29 TDS vs 15 ints in 19 games on a crappy team ( Glennon). This is why people are interested in this guy. Put him on a real squad and he’s a decent QB and possibly a good one. Now going on his 4 or 5th yr…can’t remember. Time makes a big difference with qbs.

  9. 9


    Glennon is better than people think, even back to college. 2011: Torched #7 Clemson for 3 TD 0 Int 2012 Torthed #3 FSU 5 TD 1 Int.

    In his 2 years as a college starter he was around a 70%-30% (TD – Int) passer.

    In the NFL he is 29 TD – 15 INT as a back up, with minimal experience. Those numbers are better than most game managing starters.

    There is much more to Mike Glennon than meets the eye. He will be great trade bait in the draft.

    1. 9.1


      I agree so we must trade to someone not in the NFC.
      Go Bucs !!

  10. 10


    If Glennon ever had to get under center for Dirk Koetter, I think he would distance himself from that “Captain Checkdown” moniker. His rookie year Sullivan and Schiano rightfully didn’t trust a rookie to let it fly when pressed into the starting job by the Freeman debacle. Year 2…did we really learn anything about any offensive player in the Marcus Arroyo era? Glennon has the ability to be a good deep ball passer, but he hasn’t played in the regular season under a coach that wants him to go downfield.

    PREDICTION: Glennon > Osweiler
