Progress, but no wins for Glennon
In his fourth start, Bucs rookie quarterback Mike Glennon continued to make incremental progress, but he still doesn't have a victory to show for it. Glennon completed 30 of 51 passes for 275 yards and a touchdown. For Glennon and Bucs coach Greg Schiano, there are no moral victories. “His development is certainly important, but we're about winning,'' Schiano said before the game. “Mike's development is in a lot of different areas, but it's part of the bigger goal, and that's to win the game.''

“I'm extremely tough on myself,'' Glennon said. “I think all quarterbacks at this level are. No one wants to succeed more than ourselves. I've made some good plays. I've made some bad plays.''

The Panthers seemed impressed. “He has a great arm, he really does,'' Panthers coach Ron Rivera said before the game. “The quarterback does a nice job getting the ball out.''

“He's an intelligent guy,'' said Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly, a former Boston College player who faced Glennon during ACC games with N.C. State. “He's one of those prototypical guys who's going to sit back, a pocket guy who can make all the throws.''
