As soon as the news of Mike Glennon's benching was released by Glennon himself, it was easy to speculate that Glennon's future as the Bucs quarterback of the future was in doubt as well. What quarterback of the future for any team gets benched twice within a calendar year? That's what Lovie has done to Glennon despite what his words might say.
“Nothing has changed," Lovie Smith said when asked if Mike Glennon was still his quarterback of the future. "Mike has gone back in the same position he was when we started.”
This is hard for me to grasp. The Bucs are 1-7 with any shot at post-season play a laughable proposition. Why would you turn back to a 35 year old career backup QB to be your starter when you can gain more experience for your supposed "quarterback of the future?" Honestly, it makes no sense.
“It doesn’t say anything except for right now Josh is our quarterback," Lovie Smith said of Mike Glennon's future. "I said Mike is the quarterback of the future. As we move Mike into that role, I’d say the future came a little bit quicker than I thought. But now our starter is back. That’s all you should look into is that.”
Sorry coach, but Bucs fans are getting tired of you insulting their intelligence. If Mike Glennon is truly your quarterback of the future, then you are being an absolute fool by not playing him to let him learn through mistakes while gathering experience. If Mike Glennon is not your future, then just focus on who starts currently and drop the whole "quarterback of the future" crap.
Lovie's words and lies are growing thin with Bucs fans...almost as thin as Sunday's crowd at Raymond James Stadium will be when the Falcons come to town.
