From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): The Bucs feasted on their old backup quarterback, leaving Glennon powerless to move the ball. The lack of a running game or proven downfield receivers didn't help, but it's clear that Glennon is only a temporary starter at this point. If Glennon doesn't create some positive movement against the Steelers, we could be seeing Mitchell Trubisky soon.

Week 3: vs Pittsburgh Steelers

All QB vs PIT

FBG says: Tough matchup. This week, coach John Fox signed off on Mike Glennon remaining his starter. It's unclear why that is, though; Glennon has been mediocre at best through two games. He's completed a studly-looking 67.1% of his throws, but that number has been inflated by checkdowns and prevent defenses. Glennon has produced just 6.05 yards per attempt, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. He's also lost three turnovers (two interceptions) and absorbed five sacks - including one in the red zone to end the team's 23-17 loss in Week 1. Not all of this is Glennon's fault, of course. The Bears have been ravaged by injuries to receivers, and he played Week 2 without top offensive lineman Kyle Long, who is tentatively expected to return this weekend. But Glennon is bringing nothing positive to the table, failing to make much happen downfield (only 3 completions traveling 15+ yards beyond the line) and hemorrhaging turnovers. With a lack of difference-making receivers - Kendall Wright - it's hard to find any optimism. We should see rookie Mitchell Trubisky sooner rather than later; considering Glennon's turnover-fest in Week 2, it could be as soon as this Sunday. The Steelers' pass defense would definitely feel the loss of rookie edge rusher T.J. Watt, who's questionable with a groin injury that knocked him out of Week 2, but it wouldn't doom them. Watt's high-energy play and pass-rush chops have been huge for the team, but they're flushed with pass-rush options that can step in admirably. Cameron Heyward has been a demon on the front line, while Bud Dupree and Anthony Chickillo have taken turns making splash plays in the pass game. We'll likely get a James Harrison sighting, too, if Watt can't go or aggravates the injury in-game. In the secondary, things are dicier. We can't gauge much from their Week 2 matchup with the anemic Case Keenum, and there's little to fear in this atrocious Bears passing game. But the cover men - especially cornerback Joe Haden, who was worked over by Corey Coleman in Week 1 - will need to avoid missteps down the field.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs TB (31 / 45 / 301 / 1 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Attention reader: If Mike Glennon is on your roster you're doing it wrong. Glennon tossed two interceptions and lost a fumble in Sunday's 29-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. One of the interceptions resulted in a pick-six and his other turnovers resulted in points for Tampa. Glennon regularly threw into bracket coverage/double coverage, struggled to adjust to the Tampa pass rush and didn't protect the football. Glennon doesn't have an immense amount of talent, obviously, and Bears management has done very little to surround him with talented players who might be able to make up for some of that lack of talent. What else is there to say?

2017 Week 1 vs ATL (26 / 40 / 213 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

It wasn't the prettiest of efforts, but Bears fans will take it. Glennon completed 26 of 40 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown and zero turnovers in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The most important factor of Glennon's performance is the zero turnovers. Not turning over the ball is what will keep him on the field and Mitchell Trubisky on the bench. It was evident Sunday that Glennon has no one who can stretch the field. Kevin White was drafted to be that guy for the Bears, but he's now out for the season with a shoulder injury. His stable of talent is unlikely to get better this season, either. Glennon has very little value from a fantasy perspective.

Bears | Mike Glennon surpasses 300-yard mark (Sun Sep 17, 04:17 PM) - Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon went 31-for-45 for 301 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

Our View: Glennon was completely ineffective in the first half and his turnovers along with Tarik Cohen's muffed punt basically gave the Bucs no chance. The Mitchell Trubisky doomsday clock gets closer to midnight with the Steelers up next.

Bears | Mike Glennon throws for 213 yards, TD (Sun Sep 10, 06:29 PM) - Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon completed 26 of his 40 pass attempts for 213 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 1 game against the Falcons.

Our View: Glennon wasn't able to get much going downfield, but he did drive the team down the field for four shots at a game-winning touchdown and twice made a throw good enough to win the game. He's not much for fantasy next week at Tampa, but he'll keep Mitchell Trubisky on the bench with performances like this one.
