Blitz passing favors Manuel

Posted by Chris Brown on December 7, 2013 – 4:50 pm

EJ Manuel and Bucs QB Mike Glennon have each gone through their share of struggles in their rookie seasons. Some of their production numbers are strikingly similar, but there is one particular area where Manuel has a leg up.

When facing the blitz Manuel has been very proficient. He’s a large reason why the Bills passer rating against the blitz ranks fourth in the league with a mark of 104.97. Glennon meanwhile is largely responsible for the Bucs passer rating against the blitz of just 78.7, good for just 23rd in the NFL.

Buffalo’s approach toward Glennon, knowing he’s not the most mobile quarterback figures to be an aggressive one. We’ll see if he can improve on the blitz passer rating he’s compiled to this point against the league’s number one sack team.
