A non-Spiller positive from the Jets game


The secondary and Fitz have been bashed to death here, and for good reason. With all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth in Bills nation, though, a very solid performance was missed by a lot of folks. This is completely fine, as the less you hear about a rookie offensive lineman, the team is usually that much better off for it. I'm referring, of course, to the new left tackle, Cordy Glenn.

Glenn made his first NFL regular season start yesterday, and he was every bit as good as Nix and company thought he'd be when they drafted the former guard and one-year starter at tackle from Georgia.

The knocks on Glenn were his lack of experience at left tackle and being too slow to protect the blindside, and many draftniks felt that he would be better suited to an interior role in the pros. Yet against Rex Ryan's highly rated defensive crew, he consistently kept Calvin Pace from disrupting plays, and Jets first rounder Quinton Coples was pretty much a non-factor as a pass rusher. In addition, as a run blocker he is already miles ahead of his predecessor Demetress Bell. He had several powerful blocks and helped spring C.J. Spiller on multiple runs off tackle, including the jaw-dropping 56 yarder for a touchdown in second quarter.

So, even though there is a lot of work to with the pass defense and it seems that Buffalo is still in the hunt for a capable quarterback, early returns suggest that the Bills made the right call by drafting Cordy Glenn. Hopefully he will continue to improve with this valuable first year experience, and one of the most important positions on the field can be settled in Buffalo for the long term.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
