Week 9: at Cleveland Browns

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The good news for Mike Glennon is that the Buccaneers didn't trade away Vincent Jackson on Tuesday. The bad news for Glennon is that the Buccaneers shipped away S Mark Barron and LB Jonathan Casillas to St. Louis and New England, respectively, signalling that the 1-6 Buccaneers are now in full-rebuilding-mode. The coaching staff will be evaluating personnel with an eye towards next year's free agency and the upcoming draft, which may mean some exotic combinations of personnel at various positions going forwards. However, a change at QB isn't being contemplated, according to head coach Lovie Smith: 'You'll always like to have a couple plays back, but the first thing I thought about as far as improving our ball club wasn't, 'God, we have to make a change at the quarterback position.'' he stated on Monday. The moves before the trading deadline involved defensive players, not members of the offense. However, Glennon needs to turn up the volume for the Buccaneers - 19/28 for 171 yards passing, one TD and with one interception thrown vs. Minnesota (with five sacks taken for -12 yards) isn't going to get the job done. Neither is Vincent Jackson's five targets for 1/13/0 receiving last week. Mike Evans (seven for 4/78/0), Bobby Rainey (six for 6/41/0) and Austin Seferian-Jenkins (four for 3/26/1) do represent a young core of players that can be built on, but Glennon has to do more with the tools at hand. Fortunately for Glennon, this week he faces the Browns, a team that coughed up 34/54 for 316 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions to rookie Derek Carr and company last week (three sacks for -12 yards generated by the Browns) - Matt Schaub added an interception thrown on his only attempt of the day (which is an example of why Carr is starting for the Raiders). The Browns did intercept Blake Bortles three times two weeks ago, but they also lost that game 6-24 despite the plus in turnovers (and intercepting Bortles is not particularly difficult this year, he's thrown 12 vs. just six TD passes). Currently the Browns are a mediocre 20th in the NFL averaging 252.1 net passing yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores handed over vs. eight interceptions (tied-seventh in the NFL) and 15 sacks (tied-18th) generated to date. Tampa Bay is tied for 21st in the NFL with 19 sacks allowed this season. Advantage, Tampa Bay.
