Will a first round draft pick psych out a third round quarterback?
Obviously, Glennon is aware of the differences between him and Mitchell Trubisky. He was picked in the third round, 73rd pick. Trubisky was picked first round, second pick. Glennon started halfway through the 4-12 2013 season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 2014, his debut resulted in week three after Josh McCown’s thumb injury. Glennon remained the starter for the next four weeks until McCown’s return. For the 2015 and 2016 seasons, he was Mr. Backup.
In addition, one commonality is that both quarterbacks hover around a 60% pass completion average. Even though Trubisky’s average is slightly higher at 62.1% to Glennon’s 59.4%., both do have strong, efficient arms. Most importantly, they are known for their calm demeanor. Now once they have more time with the rest of the offense, the intrinsic connections should be established and flourish over time.
With this year marking Glennon’s fifth season, his patience should finally pay off. He has waited long enough. He has paid his dues. He did his time on the sidelines. Now is his time to step up, and he knows his role.
By keeping this leadership role in mind, Glennon only had praise for Trubisky. At a press conference from June 13, Glennon said, “He’s been great. He works really hard at [being quarterback]. He asks questions. He has done a really good at learning offense. Understanding what we are trying to accomplish. I think he has done a really great job for being a Rookie.”
After all, Glennon has been through the process of fostering a team’s relationships before. Just he hasn’t been given a leadership role. Give him time to prove himself. We have been waiting to hear a determined voice from someone to lead our team to win games. Glennon is our guy. He is now no longer shadowed by the sidelines of being second. He’s in the light, first on call.
