He is horrible dropping back from under center and does his best work in the shotgun with a no-huddle type offense.
Against UNC, arguably his greatest game he has played in college, he went 29/52 (56%), 467 yards, 5 TD, 2 INT. His receivers had 10 (10!!!!) drops. One of the INTs was on the wideout. The other was a bad pass down the sideline to a freshman WR that was ridden out of bounds by the corner. The WR made no play on the ball, but it was a bad pass. I haven't watched the game back to see how many yards or touchdowns the drops caused, but I think it is safe to say without the drops he would have had at least another 75 yards and a touchdown.
If I am an NFL team, I don't touch Glennon unless I have time to develop him and a coaching staff that can teach him how to study film and apply it on the field. I'd love to see a competent coaching staff get a hold of his physical skill set.
It's just kind of scary to me how in all the time he's been here I have never once thought O'Brien made the right move by choosing him for two years over Wilson for one. The only time I even came close to doubting that is after the FSU game, and he sucked for 3 quarters in that game.
