    I think a 2nd or 3rd round pick for Glennon would be a steal for teams like Buffalo, Cleveland or Arizona that would benefit greatly with him at QB. He’s a good guy and I hope that he finds success where ever he ends up.

    Fab 1: you must have watched a different game. JW did not throw the TD, MG did.

      Hey Deke,

      This is no biggie, but I think that’s what Scott said – Winston threw a pass down the seam to Shepard and scored on a run. In the Next paragraph, after Winston was pulled due to injury, He praises Mike Glennon for the TD pass that was thrown to Shepard. You may want to re-read the first 4 paragraphs. I think we all appreciate what Glennon can do!

    Thanks Scott – nice views as always. FAB 1) I agree that keeping Glennon as a backup was a good decision. However, it seems incredibly unlikely that he would resign with us, meaning he will be gone one way or the other before the end of next season. If we are wise we’ll look to move him before the start of next season so that we get something reasonable in return (and I would suggest the sooner we do it, the more we’ll get). FAB 2) all of the OL. FAB 3) Bell better be a stud on ST because his WR play has been lacking. FAB 5) I think your mentorship of X is admirable.

    Good article SR, and I guess it took the REAL Jon G for you to write about Glennon and his inherent obstacles. I still recall you believing he would never be a starter in the NFL. A few others, including myself, have been saying give Glennon a chance with respectable coaching. It was just too hard for the Bucs to pass up on JW with #1 pick and we may even have picked a bust if we had any other pick so I am cool with how things played out. Love the alternate reality and we will never know as this will be Glennons last year with the Bucs if he even makes it that long. I think Cleveland will try to land him soon. So SCUBOG- still see Glennon as the dink and dunk QB? i recall last year trying to get any of you to bet me Glennon will be a legitimate NFL starting QB. Also, this is only one PRESEASON win and things can either build nicely or get worse. Unfortunately we have been down this road many times and faded; like every year, I hope this one is different. Go Bucs!

      I can appreciate you sticking with Glennon @Dbuc63. To me he is a really good backup (I think I’ve said that for 3 years now), but there’s a big difference between being able to hold down the fort for a few games as a backup (ala Frank Reich), and being “the man” as a 16 game starter leading your team to victory (ala JW)…that ability I have never seen in the guy, but who knows maybe it’s in there…Lord help him if he ends up in Cleveland though!

    2. 4.2


      Dbbuc63: Short answer-YES because that’s what he has been so far. Perhaps having a real OC will change that. Because of his preparation and obvious skills, I’ve always thought Glennon could be a great “back-up” QB. That’s why he remained on the bench behind the pathetic Josh McCown all year. His being cautious with the ball and throwing to his outlets is a fact. One pass down field here and there doesn’t make him a gunslinger. You probably remember the great Gerry Gholsteyn lighting it up in a pre-season game and stunk it up when it counted. Heck, Richie McKay stole a fist round pick for Craig Erikson who also fizzled. Seems to me Glennon is his equal if Licht considers a trade. I’d keep him. But I’m sure not going to get giddy over one pass in a pre-season game.

      Thank you, Dbuc63. Bucs may trade Glennon next year. Cleveland could be an option.

    Being a career back up Q.B. isn’t a bad way to make a living. Maybe Glennon who loves being in Tampa, would be willing to stay right here as said back up. After seeing Kwon replace Carter, I would not be shocked to see Warren unseat E Smith. Winston did much better last year when the big Cam Irving was moved to center. Who knows, if a starting center goes down somewhere I’d trade E-S in a heartbeat.

    I know every player wants to be a starter, that’s where the money is – that’s where the competitive juices get squeezed. And I’m sure Glennon is no different. I’m sure he imagines himself in Budweiser commercials surrounded by pretty girls, or running thru airports or mentioning during an ESPN interview that his yacht is parked right next to Tigers. Don’t care! Dig out some of that Glazer gold and keep him here forever. A 2nd or 3rd round pick? No way! Keep him. Pay him. Heck, he may be our own version of George Blanda. Go Bucs!

    Boy, You guys act like you never saw Glennon play before, this last game was a great game by Glennon but Glennon always has the one or two games during the yr where he looks great the problem is he is not consistent enough to be a starter in this league. While he throws a beautiful ball he needs to have a clean pocket to do so, he buckles under a pass rush and I mean one pass rusher, he can’t throw very well out of the pocket, he lacks that “it” factor he doesn’t have the leadership mentality on or off the field that men will follow, he just isn’t a starter in this league period, but yes when given time in pocket he can make every NFL throw.

    I’m glad that Hardy has the balls to play the rookie over the paycheck in Carter, now we need to see more of Warren to see if he can un seat EDS who is mediocre at best. Gosder Cherilus is terrible he was mediocre in Detroit and mediocre at Indy,he got manhandled for a sack by a guy who has never had more than 2 sacks in a season and held on the play on top of that, we are in serious trouble at RT, we need to keep zero catches Stocker over there to help out.

    Brandon Meyers might be the worst blocking TE in the NFL yes worse than Jimmy Graham, he got smoked bad twice last week

      Yes, he did. I’m not a big Brandon Myers fan. I think Cameron Brate is just as good, just not as experienced.

    Matthew Masifio could be our first unexpected pick to make the 53 roster. Masifilo, a converted DT and 2012 undrafted free agent out of Stanford, has appeared in one regular-season game. Two weeks into the preseason, Masifilo has graded out as Pro Football Focus’ No. 2 overall guard, receiving strong marks in the run game. Not saying he will make it, but he’s had a knack for sticking around!

      The interesting thing about Masifilo is that he’s only about 280-285 pounds, which is very undersized these days.

  12. 11


    I’d keep Masifio over Edwards, and Gilkey.

    Another good Article Scott. I would trade Glennon because his value is at the highest it has ever been. I’m thinking we could get a 3rd rounder for 2016 & 2017. I agree with other Posster’s we will lose him because he believes he’s a starter and maybe he might be with the right team. Pittsburgh comes to mind and so does the Patriots. Just my opinion. Go Bucs!

      Thanks, Horse. Trading him next year may be in the plans. Don’t see him re-signing with Tampa Bay. He wants to start and should have that shot.

    I think that Glennon stays here through his contract as insurance for Jamies. Theirs still a trial that’s going to happen and possible suspension. That’s next season, so I expect Glennon to be here. In fact, I see Glennon staying the next two seasons, then when Koetter gets a head coaching gig because he built a great offense here, he takes Glennon to run his offense at his new post. Which would more than likely be at a team that doesn’t have a good QB.

    1. 13.1


      What Trail? There’s no criminal suit that I am aware of; there’s a civil suit and I don’t think the NFL can act on it’s results. Anybody know that answer?

      1. 13.1.1


        No criminal charges exist. A Civil suit against FSU has been filed by the accuser. Winston’s people have filed a defamation suit against the accuser. A civil suit filing against Winston by the accuser is (I believe) only pending.

    2. 13.2


      Sounds like any given Sunday

    3. 13.3


      How will he get suspended for something that happened before he was in the league? He is not facing possible suspension.

  15. 14


    The trial is a civil trial and, if it goes to trial, is not scheduled until spring of 2017.

  16. 15


    I am with others. I rather see the team Masifilo stick over Edwards and Gilkey.

  17. 16


    I was at the Clev game this was the 3rd game in person. Since I make my home in East Tx. I was very Impressed with that young man from LSU at LB. That play on McCown made my night regardless of the score. Now If the entired Defense makes plays like that We will win a lot of games. GO Bucs
