Greg Schiano thinks Buccaneers have asked Mike Glennon to throw too often

For the fourth straight game, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon tossed over 43 passes on Thursday night (he actually threw 51) en route to his fourth straight loss at the helm.

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.
