Week in and week out Glennon and the Buccaneers continue to be underdogs, but a further look into the rookie quarterbacks stats may show a different story.
The Tampa Bay Times evaluated Mike Glennon in comparison to his fellow rookie quarterbacks, Geno Smith of the New York Jets and E.J. Manuel of the Buffalo Bills.
Glennon, who was selected after both rookie quarterbacks listed above, has a better completion percentage, more touchdowns, and a better quarterback ranking compared to both rookies who were drafted higher than him in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Glennon is getting all the praise, especially since the Bucs have improved that last few games, but does that mean they found the answer?
Just last week NFL Films analyst Greg Cosell stated Glennon was ahead of Washington Redskins' quarterback Robert Griffin III, but aren't we jumping to conclusions?
Could he be a Top 10 quarterback in the NFL?
Should the Bucs pass on the likes of Teddy Bridgewater or Johnny Manziel just because he's playing better than two rookie quarterbacks with struggling passing games?
There's a reason Mike Glennon went 73rd in last year's draft and it's just too hard right now to pass on someone that could be great, like Manziel or even Derek Carr.
The time is now for the Buccaneers to turn the corner and it all starts with the quarterback position.
Can you honestly see Mike Glennon leading the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl? I don't...
