Mike Glennon nearly throws for TD in preseason game vs. Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Mike Glennon worked behind Josh McCown again and didn't do anything to make the Buccaneers re-think their plan at quarterback.

Glennon relieved McCown in the second quarter and compiled 77 yards through the air while completing 6 of 12 passes. 43 of those 77 yards came on a short pass to Mike Evans. Evans bounced off a tackler and took it 43 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Unfortunately for Glennon, Evans fumbled the ball before crossing the end zone, and had the touchdown overturned after a replay by the officials.

Glennon was sacked twice and finished with a 70.5 passer rating.

Mike Glennon finds the end zone while playing with backups


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon worked behind Josh McCown and didn't see the field until the second quarter of Friday's preseason opener against the Jaguars. But that didn't stop Glennon from making his presence felt in Jacksonville.

Glennon hooked up with Tommy Streeter for a 6-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. He completed 11 of 19 pass attempts for 140 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions.

Buccaneers confident in Mike Glennon as QB of the future


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Buccaneers brass is sold on Mike Glennon as the team's quarterback of the future, even if Josh McCown starts in 2014, reports the Tampa Tribune.

"The three things — and [coach Lovie [Smith] and I were in complete agreement on this — are toughness, intelligence and accuracy," general manager Jason Licht said on Sirius XM NFL Radio. "And then arm strength is a distant fourth.

“Mike showed during this process that he has those three things and he scored very high on those three things. Also, he’s an unassuming type of guy but guys around the building really look up to him and really follow him. So that’s what it came down to."

Glennon threw 19 touchdown passes and nine interceptions as a rookie.


Bucs rejected multiple offers for Mike Glennon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) The Buccaneers got at least six trade requests for quarterback Mike Glennon and rebuffed them all, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Some teams inquired about Glennon multiple times during the draft, the report said.

"There's a lot of interest and we want to keep Mike," general manager Jason Licht told the paper. "(They were) just feeling it out. I know that Mike has a very good reputation throughout the league as far as his developmental future."

Glennon is likely to enter the season as Josh McCown's backup.


Lovie Smith not giving up on Mike Glennon


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said the reason the team did not consider drafting a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft is because he believes in Mike Glennon long term, reports ESPN.

"I love Mike Glennon. Mike Glennon is our quarterback of the future here," Smith said Thursday night. "So why would you want to add a third quarterback to the mix? We needed other positions. Forget just the quarterback position, we thought this was the best available player for us. It was an easy decision for us."

The plan is for Josh McCown to start in 2014, but apparently Glennon remains in the mix as the starter down the road.


Report: Mike Glennon could be traded for 2nd-round pick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) If the Buccaneers draft a quarterback, the team would be prepared to trade second-year QB Mike Glennon for a second-round pick, reports NFL Network. If Glennon stays with the Bucs he'll likely back up Josh McCown.

Glennon threw for 2,608 yards and 19 touchdowns with nine interceptions in 13 games as a rookie.


Is Mike Glennon on the trade block?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/1/2014) Mike Glennon could be on the move during (or after) the NFL draft next week, ESPN believes. In quotes obtained through the Tampa Tribune, ESPN NFL analyst Adam Caplan said on WDAE-AM that it's "obvious" that the Bucs will trade the second-year passer. 

"They have denied this, but I think Mike Glennon is going to be good as gone," Caplan said. 

New Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith has referred to Glennon as an "excellent quarterback" after he threw 19 touchdowns versus nine interceptions in 13 starts last season. But the team signed Josh McCown this spring and could draft another passer. 


No doubt Josh McCown ahead of Mike Glennon


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) There is no doubt who will be the No. 1 quarterback for the Buccaneers during minicamp, and that's Josh McCown, reports ESPN. Mike Glennon will work with the second team.

The report says if Glennon is going to have any chance at surpassing McCown, he'll have to thoroughly outplay him in training camp and the preseason. The report adds this is McCown's job to lose, as expected.


Mike Glennon adjusting to backup status


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon, who thought he'd enter the offseason as the starter, is adjusting to the team's signing of Josh McCown as the presumptive No. 1 QB. "I understand the NFL is a business and at different times you may have to take different roles, but that's not going to stop me from competing," Glennon told the Tampa Bay Times.

Coach Lovie Smith spoke to the team Monday and said "the best players are going to play," Glennon added. "And I don't think that's any different for the quarterback position."


GM: Josh McCown won't be handed the job


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Though Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith named Josh McCown the starter shortly after signing him earlier in the offseason, general manager Jason Licht walked that back a bit Tuesday, according to FOXSports.com.

"Somebody has to take the first rep," Licht said. "It’s going to be Josh McCown. But the keys haven't been completely handed over to him."

McCown signed a two-year deal with the Bucs, coming off a season that saw him complete 66.5 percent of his passes with 1,829 yards, 13 touchdowns and only one interception in eight games for the Bears. He will be pushed by incumbent starter Mike Glennon, who passed for 2,608 yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 13 games as a rookie.


Mike Glennon to face competition for job


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/12/2014) The Buccaneers wanted to give Mike Glennon some competition for the starting quarterback job, and signing Josh McCown on Wednesday makes the most sense, reports USA Today.

The report says Glennon "needs to earn the job with the new regime, and he needs to show that he can take off from where the bright spots were last year and continue to ascend," Bucs general manager Jason Licht said. "But he needs competition. Lovie (Smith is) not just going to hand him the starting job."


Buccaneers sign QB Josh McCown to a two-year deal


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/12/2014) Josh McCown has parlayed his surprising 2013 into a potential starting role. His agent announced via Twitter that the veteran quarterback signed a two-year deal with the Buccaneers on Wednesday. It's expected he'll compete for a starting job with incumbent Mike Glennon

In eight games (five starts) last year as the backup to Jay Cutler in Chicago, McCown totaled 13 touchdowns vs. one interception while completing 66.5 pct. of his passes. He also ran for 69 yards and a touchdown. 

McCown has bounced around the NFL since 2002. He's only had steady work as a starter in Arizona (2004) and Oakland (2007). 


Bucs looking for veteran quarterback


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The Buccaneers want to add a veteran quarterback and they're not calling second-year pro Mike Glennon their surefire 2014 starter.

“New coach, new regime, you can’t just hand the keys over and say this guy is our starter," general manager Jason Licht told the Tampa Tribune. "You have to see what he is, and competition drives the best out of everybody. So, that’s what we’ll be looking for.’’


Mike Glennon not on solid ground in Tampa Bay


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said the team might use its No. 7 overall pick on a quarterback. "Whenever you have a chance to get a franchise quarterback, you have to consider that," Smith said.

Smith said Mike Glennon "did some good things as a rookie" but not enough to guarantee he'll be the starter. "To say right now that Mike is the answer and he’s our quarterback of the future and we’re going to build around him and give him a 20-year contract right now, you’re not there," the coach continued.

"You just like the things he brings to the table. Strong arm. Great guy. He is a guy that seems like he doesn’t have an off season because he has been working his butt off in the facility. But again, I just know I like him on the football team as one of our quarterbacks right now. As you mentioned, we have just two quarterbacks signed. We’re going to have at least four in camp, at least one guy will be in the mix and you can let that all play out.''


Mike Glennon to face competition


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/13/2014) Even though the Buccaneers already signed Mike Kafka this offseason, the team is still expected to add more competition for quarterback Mike Glennon, reports Bleacher Report.

The report says the Bucs could look to add another quarterback via the draft or sign a free agent, and the team could look into available quarterbacks like Michael Vick, Matt Cassel and Josh McCown, who has a relationship with new coach Lovie Smith from their days together in Chicago.


Mike Glennon 'good enough' in Buccaneers' system


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) The Buccaneers' Mike Glennon showed poise and a strong arm in his rookie year, and the team shouldn't sign a high-profile free agent quarterback or use a first-round pick on a quarterback, according to ESPN.com. Better to spend the money elsewhere.

"Bring in someone to push Glennon because a little competition can't hurt," the report said. "But give Glennon every shot at being the starting quarterback for 2014 because that just might be enough for the Bucs."

The website reasons that if new coach Lovie Smith got to the Super Bowl with the Bears behind a strong defense and adequate quarterback play, the same formula can work in Tampa Bay. "In the right system -- the kind of system the Bucs are trying to build -- Glennon could be a Super Bowl quarterback," the report concludes.


Bucs' OC: Mike Glennon 'does a lot of good things'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) New Buccaneers offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford said his first impression of quarterback Mike Glennon is that "he does a lot of good things."

“He’s a rookie, he took over in the fourth game," Tedford said, via ESPN.com. "I think his growth and development, I saw some progression through the year with him. I think he’s got a lot of poise in the pocket. I don’t think he gets frustrated in the pocket.

“He’s pretty smart with the football. When things aren’t there, he’s throwing it away and making good decisions. Good decisions come in many forms, whether you’re trying to complete a pass, throw the football away, manage the clock, whatever it may be. I see a lot of real positive things with Mike and I’m really looking forward to getting to know him better, to be able to sit down and actually talk about things.’’

Tedford and new head coach Lovie Smith have stopped short of saying Glennon will start next season.


Lovie Smith praises Mike Glennon's arm, pocket presence


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) New Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith praised quarterback Mike Glennon at his introductory press conference, saying he likes Glennon's strong arm and pocket presence, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Glennon accounted for 19 touchdowns against 13 turnovers in 13 games as a rookie, and enters 2014 as Tampa Bay's likely starter.

Bucs coach: 'We have our quarterback' in Mike Glennon


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams told reporters Monday head coach Greg Schiano told the team in its season-ending meeting that "we have our quarterback" in Mike Glennon, who went 4-9 as a rookie starter after replacing Josh Freeman. Glennon completed 59.4 percent of his passes for 2,608 yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Mike Glennon collapses down the stretch in New Orleans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Garbage time, which basically began in the third quarter Sunday at New Orleans, was not kind to Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon.

Glennon compiled some pretty good numbers through the middle of that quarter. He completed all six of his attempts to start the second half, at which point he was 19 of 28 for 199 yards and two touchdowns, a 48-yarder off a flea-flicker to Tiquan Underwood in the first quarter and 1-yarder to Timothy Wright in the second. But he hit on just 3 of 13 for 20 yards and an interception the rest of the way.

His finest hour was leading an 80-yard drive in the third quarter capped by the Wright touchdown. But when forced to play catch-up in the fourth quarter, Glennon couldn't move the ball.


Mike Glennon a likely Week 17 Fantasy disaster


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Quarterback ratings don't tell a complete story, especially in regard to Fantasy football, but they certainly speak volumes about Buccaneers signal-caller Mike Glennon in recent weeks. Four of the five-worst ratings he has compiled this season have come in the last four games.

The 78.7 mark he achieved in Week 16 against San Francisco was the best of the bunch. He has completed just 57 of 106 (54 percent) of his passes for an average of 152 yards in those four games with four touchdowns and four interceptions.

The Sunday clash in New Orleans could provide more opportunities for Glennon to pass because his unit could be playing catch-up. But the Saints boast one of the finest pass defenses in the NFL, ranking second in yards allowed (2,890) and sixth in touchdowns surrendered (18).

It all adds up to Glennon being a poor Fantasy play. Keep him on your bench and waiver wires to finish out the season.


Rams shut Mike Glennon and the Bucs out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon had a pretty quiet game Sunday, in a 23-13 loss to the Rams in Week 16.

Glennon was held without a touchdown for the second time in four games, though he also managed to avoid an interception for the first time in as many. He completed 16 of 26 passes for 158 yards, and added 3 yards on the ground on two carries, while adding a lost fumble. 

Glennon heads into Week 17 against the Saints with a fine rookie season already under his belt. In 12 games, he has completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,389 yards and 17 touchdowns, with just eight interceptions. 


Mile Glennon not worth using in Week 16


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/20/2013) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon heads into Week 16 at St. Louis as a low-end Fantasy option in the majority of leagues. He is not worth starting in most formats.

Glennon has thrown two touchdowns in each of the past two games against Buffalo and San Francisco. In fact, he's thrown two touchdowns in four of his past five games.

But in his past three outings, Glennon has combined for just 31 Fantasy points, and this isn't the week to trust him with a potential Fantasy title on the line. The Rams have also allowed just two quarterbacks to score 20 Fantasy points against them since Week 3, which were Josh McCown in Week 12 and Drew Brees last week.

Glennon might have established himself as the quarterback of the future in Tampa Bay, but he's not a solid Fantasy option heading into this matchup with the Rams in Week 16


Mike Glennon throws two TDs in losing effort


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon threw two touchdowns against a very good San Francisco defense Week 15, but it wasn't enough as the 49ers went on to a 33-14 win. Glennon completed 18 of 34 passes for 179 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Glennon had a pretty quiet first half, completing just 9 of 16 passes for 79 yards. However, he managed an 11-yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson with 35 seconds left in the second quarter. Tarell Brown had pretty good coverage on Jackson, but Glennon made an even better pass to make sure Jackson was the only player who could catch the football.

Glennon then hit a wide open Timothy Wright with a 24-yard touchdown pass to start the fourth quarter, cutting the San Francisco lead to six points at 20-14. Unfortunately, that's the closest Tampa Bay would get.

Glennon threw an interception on his team's final drive in the fourth quarter. It was a pass that deflected off Chris Owusu's hands and was intercepted on the deflection by Eric Reid. Glennon was sacked four times in the loss.

Glennon has thrown multiple passing touchdowns in two straight games and seven times this season. The Bucs are back in action Week 16 at St. Louis.


Mike Glennon likely headed for another poor performance


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon might have salvaged his day Week 14 vs. Buffalo with two passing touchdowns, but he completed just 9 of 25 passes for 90 yards and also threw two interceptions.

Glennon finished with 11 Fantasy points last week and is averaging 7 Fantasy points in his last two games, leaving Fantasy owners with a major decision regarding starting Glennon as the Bucs host the 49ers Week 15.

It would probably be wise of Fantasy owners to leave Glennon out of active lineups Week 15, despite Glennon being a decent Fantasy start from Week 6 through Week 12. He averaged 18.6 Fantasy points per week in that span. 

Well, quarterbacks average just 13.2 Fantasy points per week against San Francisco, which is the third-lowest average. No quarterback has thrown for more than one touchdown in the last six games against the 49ers. For the season, quarterbacks have thrown more interceptions (14) than touchdowns (13) against San Francisco.

Glennon has struggled the last two weeks against defenses that have played well against the pass lately and Week 15 is no easy task. It's best to look toward other alternatives in Fantasy.
