He is already tied for the eighth-best single season mark in touchdowns in school history. Only Philip Rivers, Jamie Barnette and Russell Wilson have ever thrown more TDs for the Pack in a season than Glennon has thrown thus far in 2011. In fact, he is on pace to surpass the statistics posted by both Rivers and Wilson in their first season as a starter.
"I've worked really hard, and I think my hard work will show on the field," Glennon said. "That's the best way I can put it."
Sean Glennon knew what it was like to play on a team that featured two talented quarterbacks. After working as Virginia Tech's clear-cut starter in his sophomore year, he spent his final two seasons splitting time with Tyrod Taylor.
"He was mostly saying to just be patient," Mike Glennon says. "My situation was kind of better than his. His situation happened at the end of his career and mine happened at the beginning. ... He knew it was all going to work out for me, so I needed to just be patient."
"Really it’s going to be the same offense," he said. "They’re not going to change the whole playbook for me, but we’re going to feature certain plays that play to my advantage and won’t do as much that played to Russell’s advantage. The offense is really not that different, it’s just a matter of what plays we’re going to run more often."
"This was a scrimmage last year where Russell won the job and Mike Glennon took himself out of the running with the overwhelming situational things we handed to him. Both of them performed better tonight because they are much more comfortable in the offense."
