and uh... his 40 time is a 4.94.
There are literally lineman who run faster.

His scouting report:
To sum it up, an extremely strong arm, somewhat mobile, inconsistent accuracy and makes bad decisions when pressured.
'This scouting report claims he has terrible mobility and is extremely slow not only in his running, but in setting his feet and throwing. Also said he makes terrible decisions when pressured and has a strong arm
This one calls him a statue in the pocket, not mobile at all. Also claims he's incredibly slow and inconsistent with accuracy and makes terrible decisions when pressured.
Moral of this story: Bleacher Report generally blows.

People are forgetting how we love to make new/bad QB's look amazing. Remember Brady Quinn vs us?
i think this year its a matter of mobile vs. immobile QBs...and even that i think we start handling mobile QBs fairly well eventually.
glennon is a really tall and scrawny stick in the mud that panics easily. i'm not worried.

Just my 2 cents
This is a sign the Bucs are done winning games and are now entering rebuilding mode. I think Freeman is a terrible QB but, this is a terrible move. He could be at least moderately serviceable to the lowly Bucs. I think the main reason Freeman got worse is because Schiano is a terrible coach and doesn't want Freeman to be his guy. Yes Freeman is terrible but, Glennon is a disaster. I was absolutely shocked when Glennon was drafted in the third round. He is wildly inaccurate but most of all, some of the Bucs offensive lineman run a better 40 yard dash time. Combine stats put him at just under 6'8 but he only weighs 225 Pounds. That sounds like a durability nightmare... If Glennon isn't injured or benched by the time we play him it might be a defensive repeat of the Giants game. a QB running a 5.00 40 yard dash in this day and age really has no place in the NFL.
Josh Freeman's contract is up at the end of the year. Might as well sign a vet minimum and come hold Cam's jockstrap.

Glennon is truly a poor man's Joe Flacco, with worse decision making and accuracy.
Either start the Cardinal's defense or Doug Martin, one of the two are in for a big day.

I've said this before and it remains true. Our division traps us and TB. We have two teams that play in domes, run on launch pads, and have built their teams to go vertical and win in a shoutout if need be. We are forced to be defensive teams with running (ball control) dominance in order to mathematically compete. Simply put. They are going to have much more success going balls out on passing offense than we would simply because of the home field advantage they get to accompany that type of roster for half their games each year.
We are trying to establish a run game using an extra player (qb) because they have both gravitated to stacking the box over the years.
Look at us and Tampa. Athletic qbs who have huge arms that can take advantage of play action once it's set up, historically strong defenses, prone to big backs as well as backs by committee (multiple looks)
Glennon move goes against conventional thinking IMO.
