He didn't win the heisman trophy.

This will be for all Glennon nfl related topics and discussions

That Glennon Heisman thread really rubbed Ragged raw.

Quote :
"Something about Mike Glennon has interested Greg Schiano for a long time.

When Schiano was the head coach of Rutgers in 2007, he visited Glennon at Westfield High School in Fairfax County, Va., to recruit him Glennon told Schiano his goal was to play in the ACC, not in the Big East.

“I was disappointed because I thought he was the best one on the East coast that year,” Schiano said.

Fast forward to the 2013 draft. Schiano, now the head coach of the Bucs, went quarterback shopping again. And he thought Glennon was more than the best quarterback on the East coast this time. He said he thought Glennon was the best quarterback in the draft.

Schiano and the Bucs were fortunate Glennon was there in the third round for them to take. Two quarterbacks, E.J. Manuel and Geno Smith, were chosen ahead of him, Manuel in the first round by the Bills and Smith in the second by the Jets. But Glennon’s chance of succeeding in the NFL might be as good as any rookie quarterback.

The biggest knock on the 6-7 Glennon is he lacks mobility. He is counter trend in a quarterback world of RGIIIs and Cam Newtons. “He can’t avoid pressure,” one general manager told me. “His quick release let him get away with it in college, but it’s different in the NFL.”

Schiano and the Bucs don’t see it that way. “He has pocket presence, ability to feel the rush and move in the pocket,” Schiano told me. “He can extend the play. Can he tuck the ball and run away from people? No. He is not going to be the guy who makes the 30 yard run. Can he tuck it and keep himself safe? Yes, he shows that he does that on college tape a lot. He takes off to run to get out of bounds.”

From the standpoint of dealing with pressure, Schiano thinks Glennon knows what he is, and he knows how to deal with what he is. “Some guys can feel the rush and keep their eyes downfield; other guys feel the rush and start looking at the rush,” Schiano said. “Once you start looking at the rush, you are done. You scramble, you get sacked. He has the ability, and Josh [Freeman] has the ultimate ability to keep the eyes downfield. I’ve never seen a guy who is as good at keeping his eyes down the field as Josh. Josh has more mobility.

“It’s toughness in some respects. You keep your eyes downfield, feel the rush closing in, you know you are going to get hit. Some guys can’t play catcher in baseball because they blink when the guy swings the bat. He drops have the balls. So you don’t make him a catcher.”

The hope of the Bucs is Glennon won’t be under as much pressure in Tampa as he was at North Carolina State. He played behind a dreadful offensive line that would make a lot of quarterbacks look immobile. He also had a ridiculous amount of passes dropped by his receivers—one talent evaluator counted 46.

In the pre-draft process, the buzz with scouts and coaches was that Glennon was a poor man’s Joe Flacco. “Their stature, their athleticism, their arms and their personalities are similar,” one veteran talent evaluator said. So it didn’t hurt Glennon when Flacco led the Ravens to a Super Bowl win.

Like Glennon, Flacco isn’t much of a threat to run. He had 22 rushing yards on 32 carries last year.

Schiano, who also recruited Flacco years ago, sees the comparisons. “Their body types are similar,” he said. “Joe is probably a little more mobile. Both are kind of deadpan guys, not screamers. They are kind of flat line that way, but in a good way. Intense competitors, both of them. Glennon has a heck of a lot of playing and production to do before he can compare to Joe in that way, but coming out of college there are some similarities.”

What will matter for Glennon moving forward isn’t how he compares to Flacco. It’s how he compares to Freeman. No one expects Glennon to beat out Freeman this year. But it’s not out of the question.

Schiano said he believes Glennon “can play quickly” if he is needed. “But our situation will be only if he’s needed,” he said. “Or if he wins the job. Look, I’m not against that. We have a starting quarterback. It’s not like we’re looking to find a starter. But competition is competition. Mike Glennon is a fierce competitor. I knew that when he was coming out of high school. Now being able to work with him a little, you can see it on the practice field.”

Glennon will get a chance. Maybe this year. Maybe next, after Freeman’s contract expires. Maybe farther on down the line.

But when that chance comes for Glennon, his head coach is pretty confident he will do well with it.

actually it is a very good thing to happen to a rookie in the preseason because it builds character and toughness while at the same time not hurting anything because it is a glorified practice

I think Glennon should be the starter because Freeman is horribly inaccurate for a starting QB that can't run.

Can you imagine if Glennon wins that spot. They can talk about Russel in twice as many games.
