Glennon, Bucs cough up a chance at early lead

The Panthers have done more bending than breaking early, with the Buccaneers driving the ball well on them.

But a mystery turnover by Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon just kept his side from taking the lead, and the Panthers are hanging onto a 10-6 edge.

The Bucs have gained 126 yards so far, but only have a pair of field goals to show for it. And after he hit Vincent Jackson for a 60-yard pass, Glennon simply dropped the ball while being chased to kill what would have been an easy scoring chance.

The Panthers responded with a long drive, but had to settle for a short field goal and a four-point lead.

The Bucs defense has mostly held the Panthers run game in check, other than a 56-yard scramble by Cam Newton. But he’s thrown an interception already, and the Panthers aren’t as sharp as you’d think a team with seven straight wins would be.

    I nominate Glennon pass drop for next “Come on man”.

    Also the Steelers kicker who tried to kick the FG before the ball was even snapped.

    I watched every play of that game. That is until the end of the third quarter. Hated to bale on my Bucs, but it was hard to watch. I’ve been watching the NFL for decades and I have never seen a pass turn in to a fumble without a hit by the D. Amazing. Many of the hundreds of the Bucs mistakes fall on the coaching. I do not believe in Greg Schiano. He has proven his ineptitude for 2 years. Time to pay him off and move on.
