Greg Schiano should admit that Josh Freeman is more prepared to lead the Buccaneers than Mike Glennon

Josh Freeman would be a better Buccaneer than Mike Glennon in 2013.

Comparing the rookie to Joe Flacco, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano is “not against” Mike Glennon earning the starting job over incumbent quarterback Josh Freeman.

Taken out of North Carolina State with the 73rd pick in last month’s draft, Schiano contends the 23-year-old Glennon has a “pocket presence, ability to feel the rush and move in the pocket.”

“It’s not like we’re looking to find a starter,” said Schiano, 46, a clown’s pocket who thinks he’s tougher than Balls Mahoney. “But competition is competition. Mike Glennon is a fierce competitor.”

The 6-foot-7, 225 pound Glennon is smart and can throw with great distance and velocity.

Regardless, removed from a 7-9 record in the NFC South, Tampa Bay’s hoping to seriously contend and the 25-year-old Freeman is currently the best passer the team has to help them reach their goals in 2013.

Selected 17th overall in 2009, Freeman has tossed 78 touchdowns, against 63 interceptions, for 12,963 yards since debuting as a Buccaneer.

Although the former Wildcat isn’t a statistical phenomenon like Aaron Rodgers, the 6-foot-6, 240 pound Freeman has certainly been far from a bust in Tampa Bay.

On the other side of the ball, the Bucs acquired the great Darrelle Revis in April.

When healthy, the three-time All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowler is a truly tremendous cornerback whose incredible coverage skills prevent offenses from properly functioning.

Defensively, Revis is the type of superstar that could help propel Tampa Bay to the playoffs for the first time since 2007.

However, focusing on scoring and rather than “looking to find a starter,” Greg Schiano should realize Josh Freeman is the signal caller most capable of igniting the “Cigar City” as a Buccaneer this autumn.
