Remember when the Chicago Bears signed Mike Glennon to what will almost certainly end up being a one-year, $18.5 million contract because they almost immediately drafted Mitch Trubisky with the second overall pick? Fun times.
Even more fun because Glennon is still not a good quarterback, even though some part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fandom wishes he’d stayed in Tampa. Perhaps yesterday’s performance, two completions in eight attempts for twenty yards and an interception and a 0.0 passer rating, will change that perception.
Probably not, but watch his worst play of the night anyway.

Yup, that’s the Glennon I know: can’t handle in-your-face pressure and can’t get the ball out quickly enough. That’s always going to result in a mess behind that Chicago offensive, and probably also behind the Bucs’ line.
So hey, now we know why the Bucs couldn’t get the value they wanted in trying to trade Glennon: he still isn’t good, and those two years on the bench certainly didn’t help him.
