Though, Smith added he will not talk about the team's quarterback situation until Wednesday.
Glennon completed 24 of 44 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one interception during the contest. Glennon did almost all of his work in the second half. With the Bucs down 35-0, Glennon was forced to air it out. While he turned in solid numbers, the team was never close to completing a comeback.
The Bucs are on a bye Week 7.
Smith refrained Monday from addressing the team's long-term situation at quarterback. Glennon is 1-1 in two starts since replacing McCown. He has passed for 672 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions in three games this season.
After his two-touchdown, 302-yard performance Week 4 at Pittsburgh, I wrote that we needed to see more from
Well, we saw more Week 5 at New Orleans. We saw him finish with comparable numbers, again throwing for two scores on a respectable 249 yards.
Granted, it was a favorable matchup -- the Saints entered the day tied for 28th against the pass, and every team who faces them knows it's going to have to throw the ball to keep up -- but Glennon looked the part, connecting with a leaping Louis Murphy over the top of a defender on a 20-yard touchdown pass late in the first half and firing a 9-yard strike to Robert Herron to give his team an 11-point lead early in the fourth quarter.
Given what Glennon did as a rookie last year, these back-to-back two-touchdown efforts count for something. He remains more of a bye-week replacement than someone you can count on every week, but that puts him about on the same level as Alex Smith in Fantasy.
Making his second straight start,
Glennon found Louis Murphy for a 20-yard score right before halftime and hit rookie Robert Herron for a 9-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Glennon's favorite target was Vincent Jackson, who caught eight of 12 targets for 144 yards.
Glennon has played better than Josh McCown, who's out with a thumb injury. The Buccaneers have not announced whether Glennon will start again Week 6 against the Ravens.
