Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano may need to promote Mike Glennon over Josh Freeman


Josh Freeman may soon return to the “Soul Glo” business.

Despite underperforming, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano gave embattled starting quarterback Josh Freeman a vote of confidence Monday.

Sitting in the basement of the NFC South, Tampa Bay is 0-3 and much of the team’s woes revolve around Freeman’s right arm.

The 25-year-old Freeman has thrown two touchdowns, against three picks, for 571 yards over three games.

Of particular concern, the 17th overall pick in 2009 has completed an abysmal 45.7 percent of his passes and owns a hideous 59.3 QB rating.

Removed from a 7-9 record in 2012, the Buccaneers added the great Darrelle Revis in April and were expecting to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2007.

Unfortunately, in today’s NFL, a squad can barely even compete without a competent signal-caller.

Although entirely unprepared as a rookie out of North Carolina State, Schiano will need to promote Mike Glennon if Freeman doesn’t drastically improve.

Taken with the 73rd selection in April, the 23-year-old Glennon has a great presence in the pocket and is a smart and capable passer.

Rattled and regressing, Freeman should have little job security and zero margin for error.

Without a tremendous turnaround from Josh Freeman, Greg Schiano must see if Mike Glennon can ignite the “Cigar City.”
