Bucs to 'make sure' V-Jax gets his touches
Friday, November 15, 2013, 10:51am
Those numbers must change, Bucs coach Greg Schiano said.
“We need to make sure he gets his touches because he’s a dynamic player,” Schiano said. “You’re talking about a Pro Bowl player.
“And, certainly, with the loss of some (of our) weapons offensively, defenses are really going to key on him now. That’s a fact of life. But get over it and find a way to get him the ball. That’s what we have to do.’’
Much to the chagrin of his owners, Jackson is the #76 WR over the last two weeks. A matchup with a struggling Atlanta defense should be just what the doctor ordered. He is our #8 WR in Week 11.

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.
