Sunday Column: Why This Mike Glennon Talk Upsets Me So Much

| March 5th, 2017

Credit: Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

If the Bears signed Mike Glennon to be their starting quarterback at the dawn of free agency, it wouldn’t be the end of the world. Glennon can play the position at a serviceable level. He can complete passes. Move around a bit. Decent arm strength. Smart.

But sometimes sports is easy to understand. Sometimes you don’t need Gil Brandt’s scouting history or Matt Bowen’s Xs and Os acumen or Mike Mayock’s ability to dissect quarterbacking mechanics for hours on end, using phrases no other human being in any walk of life would ever use, just to fill the countless air time NFL Network has dedicated to the absurd spectacle known as the Scouting Combine.

Sometimes…Mike Glennon is…Mike Glennon. And signing Mike Glennon to play quarterback means you get Mike Glennon playing quarterback.

Do I think these rumors are true? No. I think Glennon is going to be the starting quarterback of the New York Jets in 2017. But the idea these rumors exist, and that anyone is okay with the Bears replacing Jay Cutler with Glennon, is highly upsetting. Could Glennon be better in 2017 than Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley? Sure. It’s possible. By no means a sure thing but it’s possible.

Could Glennon better in 2017 than the crop of rookie quarterbacks available in the draft? It’s likely, at least for a season. But by no means should any organization with the means choose to see the upside of Glennon in three years over the upside of Watson, Trubisky or Kizer. Even if all three end up being terrible the journey will be far more interesting and the upside far more uppier.

The Bears have a guy that can win more games than he loses. If they’re looking for to upgrade the position, they should be looking for someone to hold down the position for ten years. Glennon ain’t that guy. Not even close.

  • That Guy

    Cutler is better than Glennon. Cutler had just as much upside as as Glennon. And by all accounts in this wierd league, Cutler is not cheaper than Glennon. There is no reason to make that switch.

    • MB30SD

      Or Hoyer

    • CanadaBear

      If Glennon money gets up close to Cutler’s salary this year ($15 mil), they will probably look in another direction. I don’t see how the Bears can sell year 9 of the Cutler regime.

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Forget-me-Naught!(Butch)

      Cutler has a lot more upside than Gennon but his downside completely demoralizes teams and seasons.
      Like that 6int game of Fitz. After that the Jets just packed it in.
      As others have pointed out, if Cargo’s production was like 4,700 yds and 40 TDs, then that would offset the demoralizing TOs but alas that is not the case (and that’s not even counting injuries)

  • Zap Rowsdower (GP)

    Take Nixon in the deepest days of his Watergate paranoia, subtract 50 IQ points, add Twitter, and you have Trump today.

    Nixon could speak a foreign language, had memorized the classics and wrote his own memoirs.

    Trump needs his fingers to count to ten.

    Way more than a 50 point spread there.

    • Sahr Gborie

      What the hell does that have to do with Glennon and the Bears?

      • Zap Rowsdower (GP)

        Anything posted in Jeff’s twitter feed on the right column is fair game. It is his blog.

        As for Glennon – I disagree with Jeff. Spend all the draft picks and build a fucking football team. A journeyman is fine to lead it until you actually got a team that can do something. I’ve found that the Trent Dilfers can get you 8 or 9 wins if the rest of the team is solid.

        Let’s draft defense and skill players and not worry about QB until we have more blocks to build on.

        • Sahr Gborie

          I agree. D-FENCE 1ST. Give Cutty/KAP a new 2-3yr deal and let them compete with a rookie.

          • CanadaBear

            Why would you give Cutler a new deal? He’s signed for 3 more years.

        • Waffle

          Build a fucking football team. Yes.

          If your D captain spends more time screaming at teammates instead of terrorizing opposing QBs…Build a team.
          If your best D back is a guy that returned that one interception for a td that one-time back in 09…Build a team.
          If your desired QB looks like he was fired from his manager position at Bennigans…Build a team.
          If you have d linemen with Jersey numbers in the 60’s or 70’s…Build a team.
          If your WR corps looks like my fantasy roster after I’ve spent all my money on my first two players…Build a fucking team.
          If you have more heart and hustle guys than black man meat mountain killing machines…Build a team.
          If you need your qb to have less than 0 turnovers or the offense to make not one fucking mistake to win…Build a fucking team.

          • MB30SD

            Yes! Especially the last one!!

          • Sauron’s right eyeball

            Less than zero? Isn’t yonny a numbers guy?

          • Sauron’s right eyeball

            Is Bennigans still even in business?

          • MB30SD

            I really need you to think about your flair

          • Sauron’s right eyeball

            I was ribbing yonny. It has nothing to do with a QB making less than zero mistakes and everything to do with inexcuseable dumb ass decisions.

          • MB30SD

            …and I was dropping a office space reference

            https://youtu.be/KJtrLKGZZFg

          • MB30SD

            And you left out the phrase, “consistently across 8 years”

          • Waffle

            Nothing…..

          • JR

            Brilliant.

    • MB30SD

      Hahahaha, you and I are on the same page. I posted something similar yesterday and guess who immediately breathlessly came galloping to Trump’s rescue?

      • Sauron’s right eyeball

        I’m an equal opportunity offender. Fack em all. I do think it’s a mistake to think Trump is a bozo though. He’s Vinny the Chin Crazy.

        • MB30SD

          He’s both

      • willbest

        Galloping? Could you suck yourself off any harder? You fucking asked me to comment.

        “I think 50 is being fair. Supposedly Nixon was a 155, average IQ is 90 –
        110. So 50 would put trump at 105. I’d say trump is probably closer to
        the 90 range. Right Will?” – MB

        • MB30SD

          Hahahaha… Just trolling a bit will. What took you so long?!

          • Huge Bears Penis

            gotto to take some time to troll the regs every once in awhile. now let see if i can get Dave riled up.

          • MB30SD

            Hells yeah. Especially the more uptight of us.

    • leftcoastdave

      Monkey see, monkey do.

      • MB30SD

        …you’re a monkey too oo oooo (sung to jungle book theme)

        • leftcoastdave

          . . . and people say we Monkey around.
          But we’re too busy singing,

          I blame remembering that on my sister.

          • MB30SD

            Damn her!

          If you’re going to sing about monkey men, might as well take a trip to Jamaica!

            Set the controls for the heart of the sun!

    • willbest

      Your hyperbole is getting tiresome. Either that or you don’t understand IQ.

      Incidentally, Obama is in the role of Nixon currently, and judging by the lack of denial it is safe to assume that Trump was targeted by the Obama Administration. I mean I suppose Loretta Lynch could have been working for the Clintons but it seems insane to me that she would seek a FISA warrant on the presumptive GOP nominee without running it by Obama

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Forget-me-Naught!(Butch)

      Nixon also grew up dirt po, no? And opened up relations w China instead of taking orders from the Kremlin

  • Sahr Gborie

    Considering Glennon is a waste of brain cells better spent playing Pokemon Go!

  • Redflagdan

    Unless we somehow make a trade for Garoppolo, the next franchise QB will have to come through the draft. Glennon is not a franchise QB. He could be a stop gap QB until we get a true franchise QB. Would not surprise me if signed Glennon or another FA QB, and drafted Nate Peterman…

    • MB30SD

      You’re late

  • Orcs for Sauron 2016 PAC

    How goofy-looking Glennon wasn’t beaten to a pulp in grade school and turned out to be a pro(ahem)-caliber QB is beyond us. We wouldn’t want him as our waterboy.

  • Redflagdan

    While everyone is saying Cutler is gone, I am not totally convinced that decision is cast in stone yet….

  • MB30SD

    Totally agree with Jeff about hit fav 3 players in the draft. I’d add foster above Howard, even if he is a Fucking meathead moron

    • Irish Sweetness

      Reuben? Gots ta read da news boyeeeeeee!!

  • CanadaBear

    Had to laugh at the Bama LB getting kicked out of the combine. While waiting impatiently in line at the hospital for some tests he pulled the “do you know who I am?” card and then threatened a hospital worker with violence. The worker responded “do it”. Good for him. Fuck all those assholes that think they are something special and deserve special treatment.

    • MB30SD

      Yup, ridiculous. And yet, some people’s trash is another’s treasure… Let’s pick him up with our 2nd (but he won’t fall much just because of that, maybe he’ll punch a fat chick between now and draft day)

      • leftcoastdave

        Saw a low rider with a back window sticker: “No Fat Chicks – Car will Scrape.”

        Cruel, but fair.

        • MB30SD

          Hahahaha… Excellent

      • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Forget-me-Naught!(Butch)

        We can only hope

    • AlbertInTucson

      I’m sure the Bengals have a spot for him in their “Tool” shed . Right next to Burfect.

      • MB30SD

        I’d take both in a heartbeat. There’s a reason we’re dogshit and browns north.

        We don’t do whatever it takes to win.

        Maybe we can get a package deal?

        • Zap Rowsdower (GP)

          Bears need some fucking Junkyard dawgs

          • CanadaBear

            They had one in McPhee and a neutered junkyard dog isn’t much.

          • MB30SD

            Not much you can do about injuries

          • Sahr Gborie

            LOL

          • MB30SD

            Exactly

        • SC Dave

          Cincy has not exactly set the league on fire.

          • MB30SD

            They compete erra year and are either in the running for the playoffs or get in.

            I’d die for that record as opposed to our 10 years of abject dogshit

        • AlbertInTucson

          Burfect’s idiocy personally lost the Bengals that playoff game against the Steelers year before last.

          • MB30SD

            Nah, they wouldn’t have been in that position without him in the first place. I’ll take that risk based on the talent leve

          • CanadaBear

            He’s a bit too much of a jackass for me.

          • MB30SD

            Go watch his nat champ game, then tell me you wouldn’t take a flyer on him next to free if we could steal him in the 2nd.

            We’d be morons not to regardless of how dumb he is

          • Huge Bears Penis

            he just stated that the night before his pro day he is going to explain himself to all the teams that show up, and answer all questions they have.

          • MB30SD

            He should instead just say I was excited and nervous and I made a huge dumb Fucking mistake and I’m sorry and I’m willing to prove I’m a great teammate and locker room guy.

            Don’t open your mouth and compound it jackass

          • CanadaBear

            I’m talking about Burfict. The other guy, he’s an asshole but that isn’t a deal breaker.

          • MB30SD

            I’d say the same for both… Their talents are worth the risk.

            Playing it overly safe has gotten what… Dogshit like chicken dinner and conte.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            too bad we had the Ray Mcdonald fiasco. Front office and owners are now too timid to take risks.

          • MB30SD

            * even more

            And of all the guys to take a shot on?!? Kinda mind boggling

          • AlbertInTucson

            WAY to much drama for the return. Plus, he’s in the NFL’s cross-hairs these days.

          • Sahr Gborie

            With that train of thought why not resign RAY MCDONALD & GREAG HARDEY?!?

          • MB30SD

            Gotta pick your shots. What if we would have picked up the honey badger.

            With your train of thought, and the bears, we have the squad and record over the last 10 years we’ve had.

            So do you know the definition of insanity?

            Do you like what this org has become… Browns north?

            I don’t and I don’t give a flying fuck what we do to climb out of this hole we’re in. So yeah, take a shot on some thugs who kick ass… It might make us tough and turn us back into the monsters of the midway. Anything is better than the soft pile of baby poo we are now

          • Sahr Gborie

            We dont have to be women beaters to be savages. Just look at Kyle long and McPhee. We need more quality players with a passion for football. Not people who dont appreciate the opportunity they have been give

  • BearDown100393

    Burnt out already over Mike Glennon after a week versus 8 seasons of Jay.

    • Sauron’s right eyeball

      I think he reminds Jeff of a young looking Donald Trump with a crew cut.

    • SC Dave

      Irony.

  • leftcoastdave

    Funny to see all of the ruminating we are all doing on possible QBs out there. My preference remains to sit tight with Cutty, Barkely, Shaw and a player to be drafted in the fourth round while we build D and maybe pick up a killer RT.

    To that end, the idea of rags to riches and inconsistency reminded me of a superbowl MVP QB who was undrafted, caught on, caught on fire, injured his hand, was down, got back up and played on.

    Does anybody really know what time it is?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Warner

  • BearDown100393

    Mike Glennon is the Jesse Pinkman of NFL QBs.

    • leftcoastdave

      He might be another Kurt Warner, but so might Barkely or Shaw. What Warner had was the opportunity to develop in the Arena league and then in Europe. Started his senior year at Northern Iowa number 3 on the QB depth chart. Gotta love that.

  • AlbertInTucson

    “DaBearsBlog @dabearsblog
    In this article Jeremy Bergman says Alshon Jeffery wants a bigger deal than Antonio Brown. What?!?!?”

    Well, that get’s the Bears off the hook.

    Anyone here think Jeffrey is worth anything close to Antonio Brown money?

    • leftcoastdave

      If he had demonstrated that he was committed to the team and would play up to his potential, perhaps. But the answer to that predicate says all that need be said.

    • SC Dave

      What does Jeremy Bergman know? Why does what he says matter?

      • MB30SD

        Sigh

    • Bender McLugh

      No, but he deserves a nice payday, he’s got talent

  • Zap Rowsdower (GP)

    Watching combine for a little bit before I go back out.

    Just cone drills nothing going on, a few scouts on the field and one – just one – NFL head coach.

    Bill Bellichek. So NFL sends Willie McGinnest over to ask him “hey, why are you here today?”. After all there are no other head coaches there now, many coaches don’t even come.

    He looks at him with that Bellichek flatline and says “because I’m a football coach.”
    McGinnest laughs and says “there are no other head coaches down here watching this.”
    Bellichek: “that’s their problem”

    And that, right there, is why the Pats live three steps ahead.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      maybe belichick is tired of his drafts not amounting to much. Maybe he doesn’t trust his scouts. Go look at his last 4 years of drafting. Not much impact in any rounds.

      • Zap Rowsdower (GP)

        John Harbaugh is also there

        • Huge Bears Penis

          I agree with you, I think the HC of every team should be there watching.

      • Sauron’s right eyeball

        Did Don Corleone care where his olive oil came from?

        • Irish Sweetness

          Absolutely.

          • leftcoastdave

            He had it squeezed from his hits.

          • Sauron’s right eyeball

            Looks at label, tosses it aside and starts shooting.

          • Irish Sweetness

            In fact, didn’t it come from Corleone?

    • BearDown100393

      Bill Belichick doesn’t twitter so he goes to the combine.

    • Sahr Gborie

      God bless the Pats. This is why we need the guy from Michigan

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Forget-me-Naught!(Butch)

      Sends a message to the rest of his team too as most of them are in the Bahamas and their boss is watching 3 cone drills
      But Fox not there may not be a bad thing. This is the guy who only started Howard due to inj so he’s not exactly the greatest of scouts

  • Bobby Douglass

    Three top QBs in the draft projected as second rounders. Anybody complain if we get Trubinsky in the second?

    • Bender McLugh

      Trub or Watson in the 2nd would be a steal of raw talent. Whether they go anywhere is anyone’s guess, but you’d have to take a chance on either of them at that point right?

      • SC Dave

        I would think so

      • Bobby Douglass

        I would think so. I’m surprised the “experts” have them going in the second.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Can’t steal what isn’t there.

    • Sauron’s right eyeball

      The truth is QB’s are more expensive than ever and it’s smoke and mirrors.

      I’d much rather spend my money greasing the palms of the League front office and the refs. That’s how it’s done.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Projected by whom?

      Kiper pegs him to the 49ers with that #2 pick.

      Personally, I will be very surprised if he’s around in the second round.

    • Irish Sweetness

      That would be awesome, and most unlikely.

    • Sahr Gborie

      Hell yeah I will complain. D-FENCE 1ST(edge/dback) & 2ND(dback) round

    • Irish Sweetness

      Will he play better if he’s drafted in the second?

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Forget-me-Naught!(Butch)

      The QBs are graded as 2nd rd talent , but need will make Kizer, Trub, and Watson go by 20

  • Zap Rowsdower (GP)

    Peppers going to run.

    He’s dressed like a prize fighter. He’s moving into tool territory.

    If he drops a 4.4 then he can walk the talk his mouth b runnin

    • Sauron’s right eyeball

      Does he have his speedo on?

      • MB30SD

        That would be fucking awesome

        • CanadaBear

          I laugh when people get all pissy about somebody wearing a speedo. If they’ve got the body to rock it, good on ’em. A lot of work went into it. On the other hand, those old European dudes that have the huge tool sheds, yikes!

          • MB30SD

            Hahahaha… Go to any beach on the coast of Italy and France and you’ll get all kinds of eyefulls of saggy old bags of both sexes… We’re so pent up and focused on looks/sexuality here… It’s a really interesting juxtaposition

          • CanadaBear

            Oh I know. I’m totally OK with seeing old and saggy as long as I can look at some naked hotties.

    • Huge Bears Penis

      pretty good at 4.46. worked out with LBs today going to do DB drills tomorrow.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Jabril Peppers runs a 4.46.

    Proclaims himself a safety.

    • MB30SD

      At least he gets it. No way he was going to be a real IMLB

      • Huge Bears Penis

        we are going to draft him and make him a WR.

        • MB30SD

          Wouldn’t surprise me

          • leftcoastdave

            Desmond King of Iowa would also be a twofer or threefer option there taking punts and kickoffs as well as DB and potential WR.

            Then there’s Christian McCafferty who has done amazing things in the Pac 10 and stayed alive. Dude’s got good genes, but looks to be one good hit away from the cemetery.
            Even as a tweener, Peppers could turn out to be quite a unique talent at SS.

        • SC Dave

          NO! He’s the next Devin.

  • Huge Bears Penis

    Jamaal Charles was released this past week, I would have liked to have drafted him instead of Forte years ago. My guess is the Raiders are going to pick him up, but I would not be surprised if the Puke sign him.

    • SC Dave
      • Huge Bears Penis

        why? Charles had 9 less TD on 900+ less running attempts. and the same number of TDs on 200+ less receptions. and 1+ yard per attempt greater than forte.

        • willbest

          availability.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            because Smith at QB. Teams stacked the box and Charles got hammered constantly. No downfield threat. One of the main reasons I don’t want Hoyer, Howard will take huge hits.

          • willbest

            It also has to do with the type of runner he is vs. the type Forte is. And while Charles was clearly the better back when healthy, in 9 seasons he missed 41 games. Forte missed 10 games.

          • Huge Bears Penis

            FALSE. Don’t you know that Dowell Logains is the best OC in the game? Let the opposition stack the box. He’ll beat teams left and right with play-action passes and 12-yard-outs. Hoyer’s rifle is guaranteed by our 2nd amendment!

    • Waffle

      Jamaal Charles is an incredible talent whose body just simply broke.
      Almost 5.5 yds a carry. Sick.

      I remember he backed up Larry Johnson…And then found myself remembering what a fucking shit show that guy was. He was arrested for beating women seemingly every year. Lol, imagine Larry Johnson in 2017 NFL football.

      • Huge Bears Penis

        his body broke down because KC had no downfield threat with Smith as QB. Teams stacked the box and Charles got hammered constantly.

      • Irish Sweetness

        Once again, Waffle, we must ask ourselves what terrible things these fallen women have said to warrant such beatings from these fine upstanding men.

  • willbest

    Cutler appears to have the arm that Fox doesn’t want (or care about) and the brain Pace doesn’t want. They don’t think they can win a SB with him so you are down to secondary considerations with him. Fan favorite? not really. Strong leader? He is liked in the locker room by most accounts, but he makes too many mistakes to inspire others to perform better and he isn’t a wordsmith to provide a moving speech. Best available? probably. Will help the younger players develop? Not unless you are targeting another gunslingler. And the NFL as a whole seems to be moving away from that style of QB.

    • leftcoastdave

      I do not see the rationale in moving on from Cutty this year if it is that he will not win a super bowl for the Bears. Extraneous factors as well as Fox’s own “issues” in dealing with the unrelenting injury hits all combined during the season to create the irrational decision that come hell or high water, Cutty must go, or that somehow dumping Cutty was the answer to some important question. That seeming decision made then was imprudent, given the inability to best assess the alternatives to him as well as creating the conditions for obtaining any value for him nearly impossible.

      Today we can rationally ask, what is the question and what is the proposed answer?

      If the question is who has the best chance of producing a winning season in Chicago in 2017, it appears that the answer to that question is Cutty.

      I hope Pace has something up his sleeve we have yet to see.

      • SC Dave

        We are just tired of Cutler. Is that so hard to understand?

        • MB30SD

          Bingo

        • leftcoastdave

          That is my point! Is that a reason to dump him for the great unknown for little or no value when there are players in the draft who have good odds of being able to make an impact on the D immediately. The came can be said in FA, to mention the Tackle position. These are much better known quantities. Taking a flyer on a QB because we are all sick and tired of Cutty going out with a dinged thumb is not the most rational decision to make, given the options in front of the team which can get the the next level and become a top notch D.

            If we had a great D, an even stronger line, a real TE not made of glass, at least 2 real wrs, and a kicker who doesn’t miss almost erra chipshot, it won’t matter.

            We’ll win our 6-8 games in not horrible fashion and then next year we can sell the farm to get the last pieces to get into the playoffs.

  • JR

    Dude, thank you for writing this post. I really appreciate it. We as Bears fans need to genuinely form a mutiny against the entire franchise if this is the decision the team decides to make. Our squad is quite laughable, and we need to energize the city. Although Watson isn’t my favorite QB in the draft (Kizer), I think he needs to be chosen if we can’t nab a quality QB in Free Agency. He will be a poster child for the team and create an element of intrigue for the Bears that we haven’t had in a decade. People would actually talk about us again, and we wouldn’t be the laughing stock of the NFL. But this conversation wouldn’t even need to be had if the Bears’ organization weren’t full of inept cretins and made a play for one of the most gifted athletes at the QB position, named Tyrod Taylor. He would win at least 10 games for our team his first year, and be the best option for the Bears out of nearly any realistic possibility for years to come. Better than Garopollo, better than Watson, and definitely better than Cutler, Romo, or Glennon. But hey, we’re the Bears, so I wouldn’t expect us to do something logical or productive. Let’s see what happens.

    1ST Round. Pick #3. Or JAMAL ADAMS. LOVE HIS ATTITUDE: I’m the best player in the draft

    • MB30SD

      I’m still a Malik Hooker fan. Adams is more of a SS, and we badly need a FS!

      • leftcoastdave

        Desmond King.

        • MB30SD

          @ #3?!

          • leftcoastdave

            Hell no. #3 moving up into the 2nd if we get lucky to trade down.

          • MB30SD

            I thought you’d gone crazy. Yes, I’d be down with Hooker and him. 1 and 2

          • leftcoastdave

            Hopefully not even 2 but 3. Kid’s a great corner returning punts and kickoffs. Likely better as a FS with his field recognition.

          • MB30SD

            oh, well then never mind. I don’t want any more projects.

            1. Hooker
            2. Best CB available, if not good value, best SS, if still not best TE
            3. See above for the one that didn’t get picked
            4. etc…

          • leftcoastdave

            Desmond King is no project. Watch and see. If he falls to late 2nd he’ll be a steal.

    that’s cool, but how often would we see him in a full-on sprint? i see 2 occasions:

    1. chasing a pitch/sweep/bootleg/reverse going the other way.
    2. chasing down a runner/receiver who has already made it to the second/third level.

    i like #1. don’t like #2.

    well, actually, i love number two. feel so good afterwards. but you know what i mean.

          • BerwynBomber

            12M year one with what guaranteed? With Cutty, it’s one more and done. We don’t need to buy no nice new diamond ring for what’s left in the bar at 2am.

      What’s love got to do, got to do with it? Or even hate for that matter. Whoever is back there will get $12m plus for how many years guaranteed? With Cutty, its a one night stand. Spend the money building the D and maybe even signing Ricky Wagner to nearly complete a bad ass O line. With any luck at all, someone will want to pay something worth taking like Minny did last year while Shaw and whomever get ready to start.

    Being a bears fan for the last 25+ years I have seen the ups and downs from Super Bowl teams to 3-13 cellar dwellers but for some reason this regime and this offseason is really getting to me. How do I as a Bears fan get excited with the signing of a QB who doesn’t even have the ceiling of the guy he is replacing, the GM letting his BEST offensive weapon leave for a 1yr-14 mill contract,
    and the “biggest signing of the day” is a past his prime was a street free agent 2 years ago safety?
