The best Bucs’ QB? It’s a debate without a winner

by Gary Shelton on November 24, 2014 · 1 comment

in general, Tampa Bay Bucs

Some arguments are silly. Some arguments are pointless. Some arguments don’t have a defendable position available.

This one, for instance:

Josh McCown vs. Mike Glennon.


I know, I know. We are in the final third of a wasted season, and you would like very much to find something to care about. This guy vs. that guy is usually a good place to go. In those kinds of arguments, you are often debating production vs. potential, efficiency vs. explosiveness, today vs. tomorrow.

In this case? Pretty much, you’re arguing this backup quarterback vs. that backup quarterback.

And yet, there are fans who are quite loud in their opinions. It has be McCown! It must be Glennon! Their convictions are so strong, you would think they are arguing between Joe Montana and Steve Young. Instead of, say, Jack Thompson and Jerry Goldsteyn.

This season is shot already, so it should be Mike Glennon, to see what we have, or don’t have, in him.
Glennon does not appear to be the leader of Men that McCown is, but maybe if we just commit to him the rest of the year, he will show us what he has.

It really is hard to evaluate any Tampa QB, because our O Line is so bad.

I read that Gene Deckerhoff is very very high on Winston, FWIW.
