Schiano says Mike Glennon 'is a guy you'd love to have as a quarterback for a long time'

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a decision early in the season to move on from Josh Freeman to Mike Glennon at quarterback. It took him a while to lift the Buccaneers to their first win, but bow they’re on a three-game win streak including a win on the road against the Detroit Lions.

So far this season, Glennon is completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 1,782 yards, 13 touchdowns and just four interceptions. Head coach Greg Schiano likes what he is seeing and things Glennon has a future if he continues to grow.

“I think this is a guy that certainly, as long as he continues on this trajectory, is a guy you’d love to have as a quarterback for a long time,” Schiano said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

“I know this about Mike: He is a rookie quarterback for sure and there are still some rookie things he says and does that makes you realize, oh, yeah, this guy is a rookie,” Schiano said. “But I think he has accelerated his progress since the day he got here by how hard he’s prepared and worked. And if there’s such a thing, I think he’s taken a rookie season and condensed it into eight or so games if that makes sense  because he’s playing at a higher level that you would expect as a rookie.”
