Glennon's stats compare to Griffin, Wilson

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently sent out their season-in-review package and one thing stood out to me.

There was a section in which quarterback Mike Glennon's numbers from his first 13 starts were compared to those of quarterbacks drafted between 2010 and 2013. Glennon came out of this one looking very good.

Glennon's 83.9 passer rating trailed only Robert Griffin III (104.2) and Russell Wilson (94.9). Glennon was well ahead of players such as Cam Newton, Andrew Luck and Sam Bradford in passer rating.

Glennon's other stats compared favorably to Griffin and Wilson. Glennon completed 247 of 416 passes for 2,608 yards with 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

In his first 13 starts, Griffin completed 233 of 351 passes for 2,902 yards with 18 touchdowns and four interceptions. Wilson completed 201 of 317 passes for 2,492 yards with 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Glennon’s stats might have gone unnoticed largely because the Bucs went 4-12. But the fact is his rookie year was comparable to some of the best rookie showings in recent years.
