Lovie Smith won't talk about Bucs' QB situation until Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said quarterback Josh McCown, who has missed the last three games due to a thumb injury, took some practice reps Monday and is making progress, per the team's official website.

Though, Smith added he will not talk about the team's quarterback situation until Wednesday. Mike Glennon has started the last three games for Tampa Bay, going 1-2.


Buccaneers' Mike Glennon scores twice in garbage time


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon managed to pull out a decent game Week 6.

Glennon completed 24 of 44 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one interception during the contest. Glennon did almost all of his work in the second half. With the Bucs down 35-0, Glennon was forced to air it out. While he turned in solid numbers, the team was never close to completing a comeback.

The Bucs are on a bye Week 7.


'Odds are' Bucs QB Mike Glennon will start Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said Monday the "odd are" quarterback Mike Glennon will start again Week 6 vs. Baltimore. Glennon has started the last two games in place of injured quarterback Josh McCown (thumb).

Smith refrained Monday from addressing the team's long-term situation at quarterback. Glennon is 1-1 in two starts since replacing McCown. He has passed for 672 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions in three games this season.


Nice encore for Mike Glennon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) After his two-touchdown, 302-yard performance Week 4 at Pittsburgh, I wrote that we needed to see more from Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. After all, he completed only 50 percent of his passes in that game, benefiting from some desperation passes late.

Well, we saw more Week 5 at New Orleans. We saw him finish with comparable numbers, again throwing for two scores on a respectable 249 yards.

Granted, it was a favorable matchup -- the Saints entered the day tied for 28th against the pass, and every team who faces them knows it's going to have to throw the ball to keep up -- but Glennon looked the part, connecting with a leaping Louis Murphy over the top of a defender on a 20-yard touchdown pass late in the first half and firing a 9-yard strike to Robert Herron to give his team an 11-point lead early in the fourth quarter.

Given what Glennon did as a rookie last year, these back-to-back two-touchdown efforts count for something. He remains more of a bye-week replacement than someone you can count on every week, but that puts him about on the same level as Alex Smith in Fantasy.


Mike Glennon produces for second straight week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Making his second straight start, Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon completed 19 of 32 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 5 overtime loss at New Orleans. Glennon was intercepted once and took a sack in the end zone for a safety.

Glennon found Louis Murphy for a 20-yard score right before halftime and hit rookie Robert Herron for a 9-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Glennon's favorite target was Vincent Jackson, who caught eight of 12 targets for 144 yards.

Glennon has played better than Josh McCown, who's out with a thumb injury. The Buccaneers have not announced whether Glennon will start again Week 6 against the Ravens.


Mike Glennon could put up numbers vs. Saints


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon put together a solid performance in leading his team to a surprise win over the Steelers in Week 4, and now faces a solid matchup in his encore in Week 5 against the Saints.

Glennon had accuracy issues against the Steelers, but still put up 300-plus yards and two touchdowns. He might find some success this Sunday, against a Saints defense that has struggled to slow down opposing quarterbacks. Only four teams have allowed more Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks than the Saints, who have been tagged for 22.5 per game, including 30-plus twice.

Glennon is tough to rely on, given his lack of track record, but there is a chance for him to put up some numbers here. The Saints are likely to go up early Sunday, so Glennon could be forced to pass often. In a two-QB league, Glennon has some upside in Week 5. 


Bucs coach holding off on QB decision until Josh McCown is healthy


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith would not say during his Monday press conference who will start at quarterback once Josh McCown is healthy enough to return from a right thumb injury, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Smith said the team will start whoever gives them the best chance to win.

The Bucs picked up their first win of the season Sunday at Pittsburgh behind Mike Glennon, who made his first start of the season.


Need to see more from Mike Glennon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) As I wrote earlier in the week, Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon had an underrated rookie season that's made him overlooked in Fantasy now that he's back in a starting role. But his inspiring comeback effort Week 4 at Pittsburgh doesn't compel me to add him off the waiver wire.

For one thing, a couple of big catches catches from backup wide receiver Louis Murphy really upped his yardage in the fourth quarter. He had only 154 yards after three quarters and only 57 after two. The turnaround was part of a frantic comeback effort that succeeded in part because of its recklessness. Glennon completed only 50 percent of his passes (21 for 42) on the day, which is unheard of among the quarterbacks who matter in Fantasy.

Does that mean it was all luck and Glennon is a complete waste of Fantasy owners' time? I'm not saying that. I just don't want to make too much of it either way. Prior to the fourth quarter, Glennon was a bust, but maybe his fourth quarter performance will compel the Buccaneers to open up the offense for him.

Outside of two-quarterback leagues, you can afford to wait and see with him.


Mike Glennon plays role of hero with late touchdown Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Unheralded Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon had some nice moments in 2013, but none as impressive as those he produced down the stretch Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Glennon keyed a game-winning drive with a 41-yard pass to just-acquired wideout Louis Murphy, then clinched the comeback victory with a 5-yard touchdown to Vincent Jackson near the left sideline. The heroics concluded a second half in which Glennon completed 16 of 31 for 245 yards and the score. He finished 21 of 42 for a career-high 302 yards and two touchdowns. The numbers would have been better if not for several drops. 

Despite the huge throw to the veteran, Glennon established a better rapport with Murphy and rookie Mike Evans, to whom he completed nine passes for 109 yards and a score. If he continues to start over the currently injured Josh McCown, his next action will be at New Orleans in Week 5.


Still looking like Mike Glennon will start for injured QB Week 4


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said Thursday the addition of quarterback Mike Kafka to the active roster is a good indication quarterback Josh McCown (thumb) will not play Week 4 at Pittsburgh. Mike Glennon is expected to start at quarterback for Tampa Bay.

Keep an eye on Mike Glennon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/24/2014) Anyone who watched Thursday's game between the Buccaneers and Falcons probably wasn't too impressed with the performance of quarterback Mike Glennon, who relieved an injured Josh McCown just a few minutes before halftime and is expected to fill in for him for at least a few more weeks.

But while he didn't exactly push the envelope with the Falcons having already built up an insurmountable lead, mostly dinking and dunking the ball for an average of 5.04 yards per attempt, project his numbers over four quarters and he had a 250-yard, two-touchdown day. That's about what Philip Rivers did against the Bills Sunday in what many considered to be a fine Fantasy performance.

So what? It's just two quarters, right? Yeah, except it isn't. Glennon put up that same line for much of his rookie season, throwing for two touchdowns in eight of his 13 starts and averaging 207.9 yards in those eight games.

That's what made the Buccaneers' decision to not only sign McCown, but make him their starter, so surprising to me. As rookie quarterback go, Glennon was remarkably efficient. Those with better than a 2-to-1 (19 to 9) touchdown-to-interception ratio are few and far between.

Which isn't to say Glennon is quite at Kirk Cousins' level as waiver wire pickups go. He needs to instill the Buccaneers' coaching staff with the confidence to draw up a less conservative game plan before getting there. But I think he could do that, and I think he'll be at worst a serviceable bye-week replacement when it does.


Josh McCown might need thumb surgery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown will be re-evaluated by a hand specialist in a week or two to determine if he needs surgery to fix his thumb ligament, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Even if he does not require surgery, McCown could be sidelined several weeks, the paper said.

Mike Glennon is expected to start Sunday at Pittsburgh.


Report: Josh McCown to miss 'several weeks' with thumb injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown is undergoing a second test on his injured thumb, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports Friday. McCown left Thursday's game in Atlanta in the second quarter after hitting his hand on a helmet during a throw. According to the report, he is expected to miss "several weeks" with the injury.

If that is the case, the Buccaneers will turn to Mike Glennon moving forward. Tampa Bay will have 10 days before their Week 4 matchup at Pittsburgh.

Mike Glennon gets some action in relief


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon got some action Thursday against the Falcons.

With Josh McCown going down in the second quarter, Glennon got a chance to show what he could do. Glennon entered down 35 points, however, so it was basically a lost performance. He completed 17 of 24 attempts, picking up 121 yards and a score. Glennon managed to pick up his only touchdown in the final quarter. With the Bucs trailing 56-0, he found Vincent Jackson on a 3 yard strike. 

McCown was awful before being pulled from the game. It's unclear if the team will consider starting Glennon even if McCown proves to be healthy enough to play.

Tampa will take on the Steelers Week 4.


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."
