NFLN survey/Super Bowl QB: Buccaneers
By Pat Yasinskas
TAMPA, Fla. -- In our NFL Nation survey, we asked players around the league to name which quarterback they would want at the two-minute warning with the Super Bowl on the line.
As you probably expected, the New England Patriots' Tom Brady and the Denver Broncos' Peyton Manning were at the top of the list. Brady got 40 percent of the vote and Manning received 26.9 percent of the vote.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Mike Glennon didn't get any votes. That's understandable. Glennon just finished a rookie season in which the Bucs only won four games.
But I did see some signs that Glennon someday might be a quarterback you would want with a big game on the line. As a rookie, Glennon showed very good composure and earned the respect of his teammates. If he can continue to grow in those areas, he someday might be mentioned in this conversation.
