Bears OC: Mike Glennon doing enough to win games


During an appearance on PFT Live Tuesday morning, Bears running back Jordan Howard said that none of the team’s players are thinking about the possibility of a coaching change and that they are all behind Mike Glennon “as long as coach says he’s the starter.”

There’s no sign that John Fox is thinking about making that change and offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains provided a succinct reason why when he spoke to the media on Tuesday.

“Mike is doing exactly what he needs to do to win games,” Loggains said, via

Glennon did enough for the Bears to win in Week Three. He was 15-of-22 for 101 yards, a touchdown and an interception while the Bears were running for 220 yards in last Sunday’s 23-17 overtime win over the Steelers.

Loggains suggested he’d have better numbers if not for several drops by receivers, which may be the case but the Bears haven’t been particularly threatening through the air with 4.8 net yards per pass attempt through their first three games. They lost two of those and it may not take too many more before the topic of starting Mitch Trubisky becomes a popular one in Chicago.

  1. Looking forward to renewing the rivalry!
    Especially with knowledgeable fans on both sides.
    (unlike you know who…)

  2. Nothing a game against the Packers can’t fix. They got the Andy Dalton and the Bengals back on track after they were unable to score a single touchdown in 8 quarters. I’m sure they can do the same for Glennon.

  3. The win against the Steelers was great, but Glennon had nothing to do with it. We aren’t going to be able to recover muffed punts, block FGs, and run for 200+ yards every game. We need a QB that can keep the defense honest, and Glennon isn’t that guy.

    When Pace traded Marshall to NY, he created a need for a WR, which he filled with bird-boned Kevin White. Then, he traded up for Floyd, who has done nothing this year. Now, he’s treating Trubisky like a lottery ticket tucked away in the sock drawer. You haven’t lost if you haven’t checked your numbers! Add in the fact that Pace has been pretty bad in scouting free agents, and you can see who needs Glennon to pan out. It isn’t Fox.

    When the team realizes that Glennon is getting his guys injured by making slow reads, we’ll switch to Trubisky. When the team admits that the defense is putting 8+ in the box because Glennon is inaccurate downfield, we’ll stick to Trubisky.

    Hopefully, we will still have a running game when they make the decision.
