No butts about it, Mike Glennons accuracy needs work

No butts about it, Mike Glennons accuracy needs work

Location, location, location.

Are we talking about real estate? In a way, I suppose we are. New Bears quarterback Mike Glennon was asked about the challenge of getting used to an unfamiliar center, in this case Cody Whitehair. There are two issues, Glennon said. One is how hard the center snaps the football.

Two " kinda weird " but its how high their butt placement is, he said.

There are moments in life when you realize that you dont know as much as you thought you did. And there are moments when you wish you could go back to your previous blissful ignorance. This was one of them.

Every [center] has got a different feel to him, Glennon said. I know that sounds weird.

Oh, no, Mike. I dont think your comments will be a radio talk-show drop for years to come. Not at all. (Rodney Dangerfield eye roll.)

Placement and feel have been issues for Glennon in training camp. He had trouble with a few snaps during practice Monday, which I assume can be attributed to the butt issue that we had never thought of before but now cant seem to erase. But he also has lacked accuracy on his deep throws, and that was the case again. Even offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains acknowledged the subject last week, though gently.

We need to hit a couple of them, he said. Just work with these guys. Weve been doing it. Sometimes its extra conditioning, working after practice, keep working with those things. We missed a couple [Friday]. Those things come with time. So when they get out after practice, and they get to throw a lot of them and just keep accumulating reps, it will come with time.
