The rumblings had been there that perhaps Josh McCown was the better option as the Bucs' starting quarterback due to his mobility and a suspect offensive line. McCown's inability to throw the ball on time might have actually made a suspect offensive line look worse instead of looking better.
NFL Films' senior producer Greg Cosell joined Justin Pawlowski on 98.7 The Fan's "Fan Interference" on Thursday and explained how the immobile Glennon might actually make the Bucs offensive line look better than it is.
"Timing, rhythm quarterbacks, who have a natural feel for that always help their offensive line," NFL Films' Greg Cosell said on 98.7 The Fan Thursday. "Glennon will make the offensive line look much much better."
Last week against the Steelers, Glennon was sacked just once, while it seemed as though Glennon was able to get into a rhythm and get rid of the ball on time consistently.
"If your offensive line is reasonably ok, a quarterback that plays with natural timing and rhythm will always compensate for any issues along the offensive line," Cosell said.
Despite their early season woes, the Saints defense at home will present another challenge for the Bucs offensive line to protect Glennon, and for Glennon to protect himself by getting rid of the ball on time.
