    one good deal out of 3 is more of a luck call then anything. Johnson was WAY overpaid, and same goes for McCown, followed up w/the ignorant McCown is our starter statement. Way to DE movitate your young qb that did okay w/all the garbage that surrounded him.

    Congrats Josh!

    I just remember all the pics he threw last year that were dropped by the "D". I think 4 in one game alone. I'm not going to miss him and as far as Lovie goes .........

    Congrats to Josh for stealing a bunch of money from Tampa just like Matt Flynn did in Seattle.

    Why would the signing of McCown demotivate a third round draft pick from 2013? If anything, that guy should be excited as hell that his only competition is a guy in the twilight of his career who likes to teach football. Time is on Glennon's side.

    A demotivational move would be if Tampa drafted a top QB pick like Johnny Manziel in the upcoming draft because their new OC wants to run a different style of offense. He could not compete with a move like that. This, he should be able to deal with.

    It's demotivating when your job last year is handed to a 35 yr old flash in the pan who before that was a career dud and out of the league. If Lovie had said it's an open competition then ya now Glennon has all the motivation in the world, but to have your job stripped of you for the likes of McCown is not motivation.

    Tampa went 4-12 last year. That team coaching staff and front office was a complete mess. Schiano left a dumpster fire when he got canned. Glennon was not ready to start,and Schiano forced that on him too early when Freeman went off the rails.

    Signing McCown means their OC Tedford is going to try to hit the ground running with a stable vet QB but not try to rebuild from a new QB from this year's draft. Glennon could never beat out a first round QB drafted under a new front office. He can eventually be handed the reins from McCown. Seattle had the same idea with Flynn, and it worked out fantastically for them.

    Right now, McCown is ready to start week 1. He knows how to learn a new system. Glennon is going to actually benefit from this. He will get time to develop without having to start and win now. It's such a good idea that I'm not sure how much input Lovie had on this decision.

    McCown isn't a stable QB unless he has pro bowl talent at all levels surrounding him; when he's not surrounded w/that he's not.

    Glennon was a simlar to better qb when you compare what both did when surrounded w/similar talent. I mean the guy w/next to no talent and a management staff full of fail in his 1st season starting had just under 60% comp 19 TD's to 13TO's and about 6ypc
    McCown not surrounded by top talent(days in Az/Oak) had a similar comp % and had as many Int's as TD's(not including lost fumbles) and about a 6ypc.

    This is going to be hilariously bad in TB. I'm going to LMAO when McCown now the stated starter is benched for Glennon.

    Dear God, McCown is not the same player that he was in Arizona twelve years ago. And who cares when and if McCown gets benched for Glennon? Eventually, that has to happen. Just by McCown's age and contract it has to happen by next year. Glennon needs to be concerned that the Bucs don't take a QB with the 7th pick of the draft.

    Here, read this quote. It's from an article where McCown is talking about the possibility of the Bucs drafting a first round QB. If the Bucs do take a first round QB, Glennon is done there. That would be the demotivating move of the Bucs. Not signing McCown. He's just there to help.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...out-bucs-drafting-a-quarterback-in-round-one/

    “When I’m here and when I’m done here I want to look back and whether its Mike Glennon or the seventh pick of the draft this year and say, ‘Man those guys are better players because they played with me. Because I was able to help them.’ And if that means that at some point in their career that they take over or that they’ve pushed me and pushed past me then if that makes our team better, I’m all for it."

    You tell me that is a bad environment for Glennon to develop in compared to watching the battle between Schiano and Freeman last year.

    So, to you, the only way Glennon would be motivated to play is if Lovie had said it was open competition at QB. I'd think he should provide his own motivation, and if signing Mccown made him unhappy, well, he should try harder and beat him out.

    If I were Glennon, I'd be thrilled that they signed McCown because it reduces the chance of a day one QB being selected. McCown has said he wants to help whoever is under him take over the starting role. I'd think that because of the deal McCown signed ends in 2015 and my deal ends after 2016l, if I steadily improved and took over in 2015, I'd be in line for a great payday for the last year of my rookie deal.

    I like McCown and all, but he's gonna fall back to mediocrity in Tampa faster than a meteor.
