A weekly analysis of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' quarterback play.
Rewind: In his NFL debut, Mike Glennon completed 24 of 43 passes for 193 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Glennon looked confident early on as he replaced Josh Freeman. But that poise disappeared in the fourth quarter as Glennon was intercepted twice and the Bucs squandered a 10-0 lead and lost to Arizona.
Fast-forward: One of the reasons the Bucs let Glennon start against Arizona was to give him some film to work with during this bye week. I don’t think the Bucs will have Glennon start working on the Eagles, the next opponent, yet. They’ll have him work on correcting some of the mistakes he made against the Cardinals.
Prediction: Glennon’s a bright guy, and the extra week of preparation should only help him improve. But there still is a lot of room for improvement, and Glennon is going to be a work in progress for the rest of the season.
