Mike Glennon's brother forced the Bucs to announce quarterback change

Mike Glennon announced his being benched himself, on his own radio show. That's weird, right? But there's a reason!

It was kind of weird when Mike Glennon announced on his radio show (or rather, the weekly Bucs-starting-QB-radio-show) that he'd been benched for Josh McCown. Why would that be where they'd announce it, and why would they even announce it after acting all mysterious in previous weeks?

Turns out it's all his brother's fault.

In case you didn't know, Glennon's brother went on Twitter and said some bad things about Lovie Smith before deleting his account. Someone could have connected that to Glennon getting benched, but other explanations were plausible, too.

Amusingly, Glennon told Andrew Astleford that announcing the change in starting quarterbacks on his own radio show was a team decision. Maybe they did so as punishment for his brother's stupidity? Gotta control those family members at all times, of course. Lovie Smith enjoys schadenfreude as much as the next guy.
