It’s something that head coach Greg Schiano is not happy with, suggesting that the team has asked Glennon to throw the ball far too often:
Schiano on Glennon: “I think we’ve put Mike in a bad spot. We’re throwing the ball, he’s thrown too many passes.”
Of course, constantly trailing by double digits will force your quarterback into a lot of unfavorable throwing situations. Add in the fact that you’ve lost running back Doug Martin (who wasn’t doing much regardless) and you have a recipe for a team without a win.
In fairness to Glennon though, he’s done a solid job given the scenario he’s been presented with. It’s not often rookie quarterbacks hold their own and while his rating leaves a lot to be desired, he does have six touchdowns in comparison to three interceptions, which says a lot considering how awful the Bucs have played.
