Maybe the scouts were wrong about Mike Glennon.
The general consensus on the Buccaneers rookie coming out of college was that he was an immobile and often inaccurate quarterback. But Glennon’s play in his first two starts has all but belied the scouting reports.
Shoot, one play alone might have done it.
It was the last play of the third quarter of Sunday’s 31-20 loss to Eagles. On third-and-9 from Tampa Bay’s 26-yard line, Glennon rolled out to his right and, while still on the run, threw a pass that sailed 24 yards before landing softly in the hands of wide receiver Vincent Jackson just as Jackson reached the sideline.
Glennon’s mobility isn’t the only thing that has Schiano smiling. His ability to hit receivers on the run with his passes has brought back an offensive dimension Schiano said was missing with former starter Josh Freeman. He's 50-for-83 for 466, with 3 TDs and 3 INTs thus far - the numbers aren't sparkling fantasy-wise. But, with a very nice offense around him, Glennon should continue to improve and looks like a guy to keep around in deep keeper leagues.
