Glennon during the Broncos game

Recommended Posts

During the game last night I saw a couple things that concerned me a bit with regards to Glennon.  After Trus TD to Cruz and everyone was celebrating with Tru, the camera cut to Glennon in the sideline just standing there with his hands in his chest pads, almost looking disappointed.  Then there were other times where all three QBs were on the sideline.  Sanchez was with Tru going over plays on the tablet while Glennon was away from them rolling his eyes and twiddling his thumbs.

Ill admit that I didn't watch the entire game and may have missed a lot.  I know Glennon is trying to keep the starting job and Tru is his competition, but I would have expected him to be more supportive or mentorly (is that a word?).  I also acknowledge that Glennons Bears debut really couldn't have gone much worse and Trus really couldn't have gone much better.

I guess what I'm getting at is this - was that just creative camera work to create more of a QB controversy by the media, or is there some attitude coming from Glennon?

You are falling into the media trap CBears, fake news, just like with Jay Cutty.

Kinda what I figured, something worth discussing though.  I know I'm not the only one who picked up on it.

He didn't look thrilled, which is understandable, but Trubisky said that Glennon and Sanchez were helping him out on the sidelines as well.

 

It seems like there is a good dynamic there... but man, I'd love nothing more than for Mitch to steal the job from Glennon and never look back.

I can't be down on Glennon for keeping himself to himself...at the end of the day some players are like that...and we have to remember being a starter is new to him again...he has to focus as much as he can on his own game...Sanchez is the guy who is here to mentor Trubisky...both are more similar in terms of styles and I though it was really interesting last night that the commentators said how much Jason Garrett had praised the work Sanchez did with Dak in Dallas.

I picked up on it too, and im hesitant to go down that road bc you can tell any narrative you want to with 15 sec cuts, but this was the bears network.  They werent trying to tell a narrative, other than everyone is excited after trubisky gets his first td and theres glennon and we can imagine what hes thinking in that moment.  My guess would b something along the lines of "here i go again."  And Akiem Hicks comments didnt ring of a veteran on a team that is fully backing glennon as its starter.

That is what I am saying. Let's face it, he had an offseason where he got the franchise spot (at least it seemed) and then Trubisky gets picked, even being traded up to make sure they couldn't lose him. So they are saying they knew they would have to alter their entire draft to trade back and recoup, to get his replacement. Then he has to hear that he is a seatwarmer for 4 months, and his first preseason game he goes 2-8 with a pick 6. I've been clear about my dislike of his signing and his prospects as our QB, and even I felt a little bad for the guy (until I realized he made more that game than I will this year   lol)

 

He had to feel bad about it, it was a poor first impression and he watches his competition catch fire immediately. I'm fine with him not being ecstatic, you never want to see a player accept a poor game and be fine with it. We saw too much laughing and smiling after getting mauled by opposing teams when Trestman was here, I want guys to get pissed when they play poorly. As long as he gets hmself back to work and still tries to help Trubisky like he reportedly did with Winston, then he can look however he wants.

Yeah as think Mitch would be the starting QB after that performance. But don't just jump on the bandwagon just yet. But really think he will start for week 1 over Mike.

Now granted he was asked directly what he thought of Trubisky's performance, but it wasnt the expected hes a rookie its good to go out and see him compete and hes just got to keep working and keep getting better....typical vet speak.  But thats not what we got.  Instead we got

"Ive never had a rookie qb, ive had tom brady and drew brees, so this is totally new for me.  Obviously its exciting to see what hes doing, and we look forward to seeing him doing it against better competition and in games that really matter."

Its like az said in the other thread, you cant fool the players they know whos the better qb and if the coaches dont play the best qb to help them win they will lose the locker room.

Zach zaidman also said that when Trubisky went in the game the whole first team, offense and defense, got off the bench and stood on the sideline to watch him.  He said the only time he saw anything like that was when Devin Hester would return kicks.

Well the rest of this preseason is sure going to be fun to watch, and it's pretty interesting that all 4 1st and 2nd round QBs had a good 1st preseason game.

Hopefully that is also a sign he has been assured of his contract extension being done soon.
